An Invitation

God speaks. He speaks into our hearts and minds through people, nature, the church. He also speaks to us through His Word. His Word is His love letter to us, His way of helping us remember who we are and assure us of His promises. His Word is the road map to help us live the passionate adventurous lives He always meant for us.

These blog entries are teasers. Insights and revelations to encourage you to read the bible, the greatest piece of literature that was written especially for you, God's child.

Healing for Addictions


Are you addicted to something? This may be cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, shopping, destructive relationships, food, the internet or video games. An addiction is a form of bondage, and just like the Israelites who were slaves to the Egyptians during Moses' time, the Lord wants to liberate you from your bondage right now.

If you are addicted to something, admit the problem and your powerlessness over it. Lay the addiction at Jesus's feet and trust that He is delivering you from your bondage right now. Know in your heart that no alcohol or drugs or relationship can fill the emptiness in your soul. Only Jesus can. Gaze at Jesus and believe that He is the only way, the truth and the life. Only He can fill your emptiness. --Read John 14:6
