Don’t Be Swayed By Other People’s Opinions Of You

Something very interesting happened to me in the past 7 hours and I’ve got to tell you about it. This is going to encourage you! Last night, right before I went to bed, I happened to come upon a negative review of my audiobook titled, “I Tried Until I Almost Died.” This lady was slamming […]

You Have Authority In The Name Of Jesus

This past Sunday we watched The Chronicles of Narnia; The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe at a youth event at our church. What a great movie! Here’s what I learned. Colossians 1:11-23  11 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all His glorious power so you will have all the endurance and […]

Just Say “Here I Am, Lord…Send Me!”

“Here I Am, Lord…Send Me.” What a great thing to tell Jesus! I say it all the time! There are so many ways God can send you into other people’s lives, working in and through you to help them. That’s why I often talk about how important it is that we don’t limit God or […]

Do you ever wonder where the love is, among Christians? Sometimes we get caught acting Impatient….Judgmental…Critical….Jealous….. Opinionated…..Negative….Arrogant….Rude….. and Unforgiving… We’ve all done it, but why? Now that I’m living under grace myself I love to deal in real answers when I’m writing or ministering. I don’t want to tell others, “your doing this and you better […]

“The Real You” series – Week 9: You Are Righteous In Christ!

Your righteousness in Christ is not based on your good behavior or perfect obedience. It’s based on what Jesus did for you through His death and resurrection! “That sounds too simple, Sandra.” Yep, it sure is. The Gospel is not complicated. Jesus literally did it all! Our part in the New Covenant of God’s Grace […]

“The Real You” series – Week 8: You Are Blessed!

What do you believe you have to do to qualify yourself for God’s blessings? Tithe? Give offerings? Give both tithes and offerings? Mine and my husband’s lives have been pretty radically changed within this past year after learning the truth that we are blessed because of Jesus alone! I had to personally come to terms […]

“The Real You” series – Week 7: You Are Peaceful!

You may not feel like it, look like it or sound like it, but the truth about you is that you are a peaceful person…in Christ. Being someone who is filled with peace is part of your identity. I know, I know, you’re thinking, “No way, Sandra. You don’t know me. I feel like I’m […]

“The Real You” series – Week 6: You Are The Light Of The World!

Why are there so many Christians who aren’t shining very brightly when Jesus told us we are the light of the world? I believe this video sheds some light on why this is happening and it has everything to do with us knowing our true identity in Christ. Are we believing that we have to […]
