As  I Ponder Humility

, by

  I must admit. I am a prideful person. While I want to emulate a humble spirit, I know within my own reasoning I’m chasing an elusive butterfly. Trying to be humble is not humility at all. Because I want to appear humble when I’m really very prideful, I struggle with advertising my achievements. Oh, I’d like to brag about this new book or a contract I’ve recently signed. But the Christian in me smacks me silly. “Bragging is not Christ-like.” What’s a writer to do? According to my publishing contracts, I’m required to promote my books. It’s hard to…

The Heart of the Matter

, by

  This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God (1 John 5:4b-5).

Yet, somewhere along the line, she held to a misconception that her good deeds, which were…

Though she has recently come to…

Subsequent Inspiration

, by

Subsequent Inspiration by Linda Rondeau “The remarkable thing about spiritual initiative is that the life and power come after we ‘get up and get going.’ God does not give us overcoming life—He gives us life as we overcome.” — Oswald Chambers Chambers wrote these words a long time ago. How did he know I’d be so tired today I couldn’t think straight? How am I supposed to inspire others when I can’t get inspired about what to make for supper? There are days I think inspiration has permanently left the building.   I’m a cancer survivor. Chemo and radiation treatments left me…
