Your Gift: Stir It Up and Fan It into Flame – PART 2

Katrina Hunter Set Free (Hannah’s Corner)   Last week in this blog, I began discussing Paul’s words to Timothy, encouraging him to stir up his gifts. I left off with this question: What happens when you see the fire dying down and you don’t know if it’s because you’ve lost your ability or if it’s because you aren’t using it? It

Justified=Just As If I Never Sinned

Starlet Ware Encouragement and Prayer  At church a few Sundays ago, a man was ready to pray and he asked the question “do you know you are justified?”  He went on to define it: ‘just as if you never sinned?  He kept repeating the question and definition.  I was able to hear it over and over and ask myself: do you

There Is Something Valuable In The Dirt

The Beauty Of Being Pursued…By Him

Katrina Hunter Set Free (Hannah’s Corner)  When it comes to being pursued…what does that mean? By definition, pursue means to: overtake, capture, defeat, obtain or accomplish, or chase. It can also mean to continue to afflict. When I saw that it could also mean to continue to afflict, I immediately had this vision of someone showing interest in another person.  I

Forgiving Yourself

Valerie Hayden Dropping Jewels A few years ago, our local City Mission ran a program to help women get a fresh start in their lives.

My Son

He Is Just That Into You

Katrina Hunter Set Free (Hannah’s Corner) I truly had a Leah mentality. Leah, in the Bible, was the sister of Rachel.

Forgiving God

Valerie Hayden Dropping Jewel Early in my healing journey, I ran into a big problem. It was something I couldn’t blame anyone else for, it was all mine.

Forgiving the Unforgiveable

My childhood was so painful that I can’t remember most of it. God, in His mercy, allowed only a handful of memories to surface during the many years of my healing process.
