Loving As God Loves Me

by Michelle Demeree

Do you know your inner self?

Do you love YOU as Jesus loves YOU?

To love as Jesus loves, I must find faith

I must find faith to pray to God.

I  must work on being the person God wants me to be.

Try to know your feelings.

Then let’s go with God and trust his love for us.

Then we can love ourselves as God love us.

Familiar customs and limited means
When the Biblical young woman, Ruth, married into a Jewish family she understood little about their ways, God or religion.  This is my supposition; but I base the conjecture on facts.  Moabites were shunned by the Israelis.  Decades before, Moab wronged the wandering tribes who desired to trav

Pressure Time
Is there a time that you can remember that you were pressured beyond your ability to cope? There have been many for me. As a child, my mother told me again and again that I was constantly burning the candle at both ends. For years, I had no idea what she meant. When I finally understood her, I wa

When we leak
Recently, I've heard a great deal about the things the Holy Spirit was doing in the 1960's and 1970's.  It is interesting to me because those were days through which we lived.  There were times that it seemed that the Lord was tangible enough to reach out and touch.  Even though I was very young-
