The World and The Earth - Not the Same

...We have a mandate from Jesus to be salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16), and to GO and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19) . As long as the world still has inhabitants of darkness, we have not completed our assignment..

Deception Can Keep You Stuck

Deception Can Keep You Stuck

by Nancy Jackson February 28, 2022

...We’ve all been stuck in our lives. Sometimes we are stuck because deception, or believing a lie, has painted us into a corner. Our prideful refusal to admit we believed a lie keeps us stuck.

This can happen...

Honest Motivation

Honest Motivation

by Nancy Jackson January 17, 2022

...Depending on your type of personality and upbringing, this may happen quickly or take several years to surface and is challenging to recover from. 

There was once a person who had it all, money and pleasure. He had all the money a person could want. He had all the pleasure a person could hope for. The euphoria of having it all did not last, and it did not sustain because he had lost the one and only life giving motivator and could not get it back...

What Soil Are You Planted In?

What Soil Are You Planted In?

by Nancy Jackson January 10, 2022

...Last week I wrote about the most toxic contagion. With our words we spread massive amounts of contagion every single day. We have a choice by what we say and how we say it to spread positive and beneficial contagions or destructive and demoralizing ones.

It is our choice what we spread. But, there is a key element that will either keep us from being able to choose the right thing, or will keep us mired in toxin.

That is...

The Most Toxic Contagion

The Most Toxic Contagion

by Nancy Jackson January 03, 2022

... Any word said, any action taken, must be done with compassion. That is the only way to build a bridge to deliver the word you wish to say. We also need to look at what motivates us to carry an emotional contagion to others that will cause them harm. 

Some people really love spreading the emotional contagion of fear. There are more variants of this horrific emotional disease than any other I can think of. Some avoid spreading some variants while feeling  wholly justified in engaging in others...

Love Does Miracles

Love Does Miracles

by Nancy Jackson December 27, 2021 1 Comment

...Often when we hurt or suffer loss and the pain that comes with it, we attribute it to God causing that particular instance in our lives. Or, some may even wonder why, if God is God, did He not stop whatever happened. 

Then, doubt sets in and even though we give lip service to God, in our hearts we wonder if we are truly and completely loved by Him. We may even wonder what the true definition of love really is. 

If God loves us and this is how our lives play out, does love include this type of deep pain? Many then find themselves...

Looking For Loopholes

Looking For Loopholes

by Nancy Jackson December 20, 2021

...Our lives will be in a continual ‘stall’ if we attempt to force our bodies, the temple of the Holy Spirit, to engage in sinful behavior. If you feel that you are stuck, or do not feel the full joy and peace of the Lord as you think you should, then evaluate where you need to clean out unhealthy desires and focus on the path that God has lovingly designed for you. 

I can promise you, and am here to say, that the path God has designed for you is far greater than anything you could ever think to choose for yourself. Free yourself from the bondage of ‘choosing your own way’ and...

Foolish and Ignorant Speculations

Foolish and Ignorant Speculations

by Nancy Jackson December 13, 2021

...Believing that somehow gives us a license to lash out in anyway that gives us a modicum of relief. We think nothing of engaging in petty arguments online in a defensive posture to validate our own opinions and to vilify another’s. 

2 Timothy 2:22-24

22) Now flee from youthful lusts and purse righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 23 But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels. 24 The Lord’s bondservant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, skillful in teaching, patient when wronged...

Do People Ever Really Change?

Do People Ever Really Change?

by Nancy Jackson November 29, 2021 1 Comment

...We often say that people don’t change.  We warn those in relationships of that very thing.  If you are in a relationship and think that you can change that other person with your love and care and nurture, you are wrong.  You will never change another person.

Same is true with friendships.  If you are staying in friendship that causes you grief, but you stay because you think that something you will do will change them, you are wrong.  You might as well raise up the white flag and abandon ship right now.  You will never change anyone. But...

The Seed You Carry

The Seed You Carry

by Nancy Jackson November 22, 2021

... Jesus was and is the Word. As Christ's followers, we have all been given a seed of the Word. A seed or seeds that we are called to nurture and allow to grow in us, just as Mary did Jesus.

As it comes to maturity in us we are called to give it to the world, just as Mary gave us Jesus. Not to diminish the task laid out for Mary, the mother of our Christ, but what if we felt the same weightiness for the Word which we carry inside?...

Mary vs. Martha - A View From The Mary Perspective

Mary vs. Martha - A View From The Mary Perspective

by Nancy Jackson November 15, 2021

... In every sermon I’ve heard preached on this, every preacher has given Martha at least a little credit, a little applaud for getting things done. After all, if we always sit at the feet of Jesus, we will never get anything done, or will we? ...
