“Choose Joy”..is it just a slogan?

I always hear people say, “Choose joy!” Or see that phrase on many things. But I wonder sometimes, is it just a saying we like to say or do we actually DO it? Maybe it’s just my issue of not being joyful lol. I’m so glad for a new day! The past several days haveContinue reading ““Choose Joy”..is it just a slogan?”

Anchored in Christ Shop..

God has been so gracious and answering my prayers. You know, 8 months ago when I felt the Lord leading me to start a blog, etsy shop etc. I had some fears and worries.

Great Shepherd

The greatest Shepherd ever is Jesus. Some fun facts about sheep/shepherds: 1. Sheep only respond to the voice of their Master shepherd. 2. Need guidance and constant help from their Master. 3.

God thinks about us??

When we start to “fall in love” with someone, our thoughts become consumed by that person. Thinking about them brings a smile to our lips and butterflies in our stomach.

Take cover!!

I love the many illustrations given in the Bible that describe who Jesus is..”in times of trouble”, makes me think of natural disasters. When they come about, we hide in our own little refuges to keep us safe and secure..what an amazing picture of how Jesus longs to be just that for us during trials.Continue reading “Take cover!!”

Wolf in sheep’s clothing

Satan wants us to fix our eyes on the things of this world so that our focus of worship shifts from our Creator to the creation. By doing this we are enticed, trapped, and left empty chasing after the wind..unusable for God. Don’t allow every devil glorified opportunity get the best of you, but askContinue reading “Wolf in sheep’s clothing”

Power of Prayer

How is your prayer life? Prayer is a privilege that we sometimes forget to partake of. It’s not just a quick “dear God help!” type of privilege, but to come on our knees in front of the most Holy and Almighty God who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He made us,Continue reading “Power of Prayer”
