Stuck in Conflict

Getting to the place where we are sick and tired of being sick and tired…hum, that’s when we are ready to nail our control, desires, stinking thinking to the Cross…and let them die there. The only reason why we become or continue to be conflicted is that we want our cake and eat it too…you know what I mean? We want the truth to be – “we CAN serve two masters”. And after a while of that battle,..however long it…

Security from Yesterday – Oswald Chambers

“You shall not go out with haste,…for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.” —Isaiah 52:12 Security from Yesterday. “…God requires an account of what is past” (Ecclesiastes 3:15). At the end of the year we turn with eagerness to all that God has for the future, and yet anxiety is apt to arise when we remember our yesterdays. Our present enjoyment of God’s grace tends to be lessened by the…

a True story – Freedom from Codependency

by Lindsay Hill — Not long after my husband and I got married, he began traveling a lot for work. He had been my first boyfriend and we had spent 90% of our one year dating relationship apart, as I was overseas doing missions work. We were engaged for 6 months and then got married. I had no idea what co-dependency/relational idolatry was or that it was an issue in my life, and since things moved pretty quickly in our relationship,…

RWM BLOG – SEPTEMBER 2015 “Hearing For The First Time”

“…hearing for the first time”  by Judi A. Thompson Today I was strolling through Facebook. I found some old friends and new articles and information. It was just a lazy time of browsing. I came across the clip of children and adults when they could “hear” for the first time. It brought tears to my eyes. Those of us who do not struggle with hearing loss take hearing for granted. Watching them experience sound brought many of them to tears.…

Validation & Acceptance

Validation & Acceptance —  by Daniel Burke We have a deep need to be validated. Probably very intentional from God’s perspective. I liken it to a implanted ‘checking-system’ that forces me to check my motives before I go out and conquer relentlessly without any consideration of the consequences. Validation is defined as ‘to check or prove the validity or accuracy of something’, so my very need for it highlights a desire to bring truth and purpose to my endeavors. And…

The power of Consistency

Revelation 12:10-11 “And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.” I remember reading this passage and meditating on the fact…
