Why God Created Satan

My daughter asked me THE QUESTION today and I had to come up with an answer to something that is hard to understand for all of us: “Mom.  Why did God create Satan when He knew Satan would do all these bad things?” Advertisements

WHY I CHOSE NOT TO BE A VICTIM.

I’m watching the world today and it angers me.  It angers me because I see a bunch of “victims” on my TV….daily…hourly….moment by moment.  Now, I’m not going to bash them in this blog because we hear it all day long from everyone.  We know the society we are living in, as deplorable as it… Continue reading WHY I CHOSE NOT TO BE A VICTIM.

Remembering 9/11

9/11…. 15 years ago….hard to believe because in many ways, it still feels like yesterday.  It still gets me choked up.  It still brings tears to my eyes. I realize much of our youth today has no clue what we all felt that day.  I realize that 9/11 was OUR Pearl Harbor, and just like… Continue reading Remembering 9/11

CASTING PEARLS

Matthew 7:6 “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

CONSERVATISM: THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE

Imagine for a moment – a mother lion never teaching her cubs how to hunt.  She continually brings her cubs food – they never seek to get their own because they rely on mom to bring them food. Imagine – if you will – a bird never teaching her babies how to fly.  Never pushing… Continue reading CONSERVATISM: THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE

PROTESTS AND UNREST

I was planning for a couple days now to write some thoughts about the protests in America.  The shooting of the 11 Dallas police officers tonight added fuel to that fire.  May God give comfort and peace to the families of the 5 that have already died.

Pagan, Pagan, Pagan! UGH.

Here we are again, approaching Easter and what word is flying around again?  PAGAN.  It seems every year around Christmas, Easter, and Halloween we get to hear this word over and over and over again.

MOTIVATION

ARE YOU LACKING MOTIVATION IN YOUR LIFE? Scripture tells us: Colossians 3:23-24 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. WHATEVER we do, do it HEARTILY….as unto the Lord….as… Continue reading MOTIVATION

CHRISTIAN DISCOURAGEMENT

If you are a Christian in today’s world, chances are you’ve been discouraged a time or two due to the hate we often receive from lukewarm Christians, atheists, liberals and more.  It happened to me again today.  I wanted to take down my Facebook profile, and at the same time vent my head off…..but then… Continue reading CHRISTIAN DISCOURAGEMENT

Satan’s TOOLS

Ephesians 6:10 – Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.… Continue reading Satan’s TOOLS
