About Me

My photo

Over the past few years my blog has been visited by people from all over the world. Very few know me, or of me, they simply are looking information concerning the Bible and discover my blog. After many years of intense study and teaching, I've come to believe we are vulnerable to misguided and incorrect teaching if we don't understand for ourselves the teaching of God's Word. My 'hot buttons' are - grace, sovereignty, exhortations and sanctification. If you understand these basic principles of Scripture, and apply them to daily life, you will understand what it means to have peace, joy and absolute security in any circumstance.

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED


 
THEOLOGY 101 
 

I have learned
God, who loves me,
has planned and prepared for my life,
set boundaries and ordained my good works.
I'm free to relax and enjoy all He has done.
 
I have learned
I can have peace in every circumstance
knowing every challenge, every struggle
comes from His hand.
 
I'm being molded by the Potter
who will make of me a
vessel for His intended use
and ultimately, for His glory!

Aah you say….ME
I'm in charge of my own destiny!
No my friend, our will is not free,
if that be so, surely
we would destroy His infinite plan.
Don't you agree?
 
I have learned
a little robot is what I am,
worries and problems need not plague me.
I am safe and secure as can be
tucked into God's sovereign will,
my heavenly Father planning what
is perfect for me.

 
I may not be a great poet, but it is often helpful to distill God's Word into a form we can easily relate to. This is a way we can clarify God's truth to ourselves as well as others and allow it to penetrate our life. Think how your life may change if you view every circumstance through the lens of faith knowing God is in full control and you are His treasured child.
