Welcome to my website! I'm so glad you are here.
March 14, 2022 – With everything uncertain here and abroad, Believers are being called to show those who are afraid that it is possible to walk in peace and confidence with a faith that is unshakeable…

Personality! Your personality is the way God expresses Himself in this realm! We are all capable of many things, but curiosity reveals that we are all motivated by a certain focus - some leaders and visionaries, some nurturing, helpful and appropriate; some adventurers, limit pushers; still others peace driven avoiding conflict... Do you recognize yourself?
The psalmist said humans are "fearfully and wonderfully made!" But who really knows themselves? Does it matter if you know yourself - what you think? What you believe? What bugs you, what thrills you? What if I told you, in Christ, your sanctification process is honing and refining your personality so you make sense to yourself and others.
It is - corporations have been administering personality assessments to determine compatibility of skills with the job's requirements. We are different! The study of human beings has been around for centuries!
People of faith, those who are spiritually alive in Christ, hold a beautiful, vibrant spiritual advantage that brings a higher perspective to life. Faith is a mystical thing that provides unspeakable joy, peace that surpasses understanding, love that transcends judgment. This also includes uncomfortable pangs of guilt or discontentment moving us forward in humility.
The Apostle Paul stated this in his painful anguish found in Romans 7 where he describes the tension between natural inclinations (Old Nature) and his born-again nature (New Nature) – and writes at Romans 7:22-25
For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Is it helpful to understand the dynamic between our old nature, the one created by God in the first place, and the new nature that comes with redemption? Wherever two or more are gathered…there is conflict! Anyone who has spent any time with other humans can attest to the difficulties and struggles of living as Jesus asked – in unity. We know Jesus' heart through John 13:34-35
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
