RW Blog November 2019 – Brett Martin

What voices am I listening to?  Have you ever asked yourself that question?  I think of myself as being a positive person.  I want to believe the best about myself and others. When I look at challenging or difficult situations in a person’s life, for the most part, faith fills my heart and mind of what God can do. This is usually the case when my eyes and heart are centered on God.  (John 15)    I can see with His…

In the middle of the muddle

Was thinking this morning about the words “muddle / wallow” and their action words “muddling / wallowing”.The dictionary definition is:  mud·dle – verb: muddling  bring into a disordered or confusing state. synonyms: confuse, mix up, jumble (up), disarrange, disorganize, disorder, disturb, mess up“you’ve muddled things up” confuse (a person or their thoughts). synonyms: bewilder, confuse, bemuse, perplex, puzzle, baffle, mystify “she became muddled”  busy oneself in a confused and ineffective way. God reminded me when Paul and Silas were thrown into prison.  (Acts 16:16-40)   Now I’m far from being a “Paul” but I sure know the feeling when it…

RW Blog October 2019 – Jason Caywood

Marching on the Trees by Jason Caywood One of the repeated refrains from the narrative historical sections of the Hebrew Scripture (Old Testament) is that God must go before the people of Israel for them to have victory. Many Psalms praise this facet of God’s activity in the history of Israel and some lament God’s apparent absence from Israel’s political and military challenges. But the core conviction remains the same: God must be present with his people for them to succeed…

“I gave up too soon.”

“I gave up too soon.” A few years ago I was helping out with our church’s ‘feed the homeless’ outreach. When all the meals had been served a lady walked up and asked for a second helping of food. A minute before the chef took that tray away that had some of the food on it. She looked and said, ‘Oh well’, then passed by. A few minutes later the chef returned with a bit more food. I called out…

Ever Accountable is Committed to Helping Women

For a long time now, we’ve noticed a lack of help for women who struggle with porn, which is a problem! Women and men experience pornography differently for many reasons, and because of that, they need different kinds of information to find the motivation to quit. Here are a few basic reasons as to why women interpret pornography differently then men: Porn is produced and consumed mostly by men (66% of all consumers), so it is their fantasies primarily depicted. As…

Intimacy

Testimony of a woman called Daniella “INTIMACY” the agony and the ecstasy of co-dependency. At the root of it, my need for intimacy has always been there, and the need itself has always been the same. Most of my life however, I didn’t realize that my acting out behaviour was rooted in the deepest need of all, the need for intimacy with another. My need for intimacy seems different now, and not as intense, but I think it is only…

Who Is Responsible? Ezekiel 3:20 – NIV “Again, when a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling-block before them, they will die. Since you did not warn them, they will die for their sin. The righteous things that person did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.” “Who Is Responsible” by Wynn Cameron Thompson Seems like the more I hear many people talk the more I hear excuses.  I…

“One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!”

“One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!”John 9:25b –  For those of us who have lived a homosexual lifestyle and have decided to walk away from it and embrace what we believe to be a God-honoring life…may I say personally that I have experienced something life-defining. One story in the New Testament tells about the man who was blind from birth and Jesus healed him. The religious authorities called him and his parents to account…

What IS real repentance? 2 Kings 22-23:25 22:11 “When the king heard what was written in the book, God’s Revelation, he ripped his robes in dismay.” (Message)  “The impressions which the reading of the law made upon Josiah were that he rent his clothes, as one ashamed of the sin of his people and afraid of the wrath of God; he had long thought his kingdom was in a bad state, by reason of the idolatries and impieties that had…
