Do People Ever Really Change?

Do People Ever Really Change?

by Nancy Jackson November 29, 2021

...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

by Nancy Jackson November 15, 2021

... For a long time when I've heard sermons on the Full Armor of God from amazing and very credible teachers. The armor is a treasured gift from God. I walked around for years quoting that scripture and saying, "I put on the full armor of God..."

Then one day I felt an uneasiness in my spirit so I leaned an ear to the Holy Spirit. He was basically asking me, 'Are You? Really?'

... There seems to be quite the uproar though, when the excited downstairs staff realize that they will not be allowed to serve the King and Queen, but will be pushed aside by the royal traveling staff.

We Can Fight, But Can We Submit?

We Can Fight, But Can We Submit?

...  We study our place of position in Christ Jesus. We love, and we worship. We check all the boxes, and we wait. We fight from a place of victory knowing the battle is already ours. Knowing we have an enemy and knowing how to fight him is essential in our walk with God.

But what if there are events or situations in our life that the enemy did not orchestrate? What if a season of hardship is not of the enemy but of God? We know how to fight the enemy, but do we know how to submit to God?...

... As I read this page, I felt the Holy Spirit substitute some of her words for me, which confirmed what I had known for years.

God’s people essentially rejected Yahweh as their primary source of provision…. They began to believe that their ability to survive rested squarely in their own hands….
