Embracing My Womanhood

Have you heard of Jazz, the transgender boy/girl that is getting a show on TLC?  Jazz was born a boy and at a very young age with parental support has been transitioning to being a girl. I feel very sorry for this child. She is feeling rejected by boys because she is transgender.  I wonder if Jazz’s parents ever celebrated the gender he was born with. I believe we need to celebrate what God has created us to be.  Men and women are very different. Women are more than boobs, hormones, long hair, and make up.

God created us.  “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalms 139:13 I believe God was in the process of creating our gender because he was there knitting us together from the moment the sperm entered the egg. I believe he created a girl that would turn into a woman when he knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Embracing My Womanhood

Since God created me a woman, my response is to praise Him.  “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14 If I decided I would rather be a man, than I am denying that what God has created was good. In praising God for making me a woman I need to be embracing my womanhood.Continue Reading

How to Handle Modern Day Pharisees

A couple days ago the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. Some people rejoiced, Christians and non-Christians alike. The decision is one that shows the current state of our world. Christians who hold onto Biblical values are being socially persecuted. Here are 3 ways to respond to people who question your faith.

How are you responding? Are joining in the online debates? Are you spouting out Scripture about homosexual sin and trying to get people to see the Bible, or are you sharing the Gospel, trying to get people to see Jesus? Jesus dealt with naysayers who tried debunk his Truth with hypothetical situations in Matthew 22. What can we learn from Jesus?

3 Ways to Respond to People Who Question your Faith

Jesus was questioned by the Pharisees about paying taxes. Pharisees tried very hard to obey God, but eventually they became so devoted and extremist in small parts of The Law (plus all that they themselves added to it), that they became blind to the Truth. In Matthew 22, they are questioning Jesus trying to stump him and prove that He is not the Messiah. I love how Jesus answered their question.

He answered them simply. The Pharisees asked if they are to pay taxes. Jesus asked the Pharisees whose picture on the money.  Jesus then said, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” Matthew 22:21 Jesus didn’t quote a bunch of laws and verses. He didn’t condemn the Pharisees, though he did call them hypocrites when they asked him the question. He simply stated his answer. No further statements. Continue Reading

All Lives Matter

Have you seen the news lately? People committing crimes, cops getting shot, and political leaders fueling the racial divide. Browse social media and you will see the hashtags #BlackLivesMatter and #PoliceLivesMatter. What frustrates me is that a lot of the same people who share those hashtags don’t usually mean anything outside of those groups. I have to say that all lives matter. Could that be a trending hashtag? #AllLivesMatter66dbecfa9ff912596d788c00cd1509f8
