  Recently, I was sharing with a friend about where I’ve been on my journey about food and eating.  I was sharing with her that it didn’t work when I tried to be a “normal eater” years ago.  I’m not sure why, but I remember really struggling and feeling like I was never going to overcome.  […]

You’re an overcomer! The first time I heard Mandisa’s song Overcomer on the radio, I just smiled to the Lord knowing that, yes, I am an overcomer through Him.  It wasn’t until months later that I watched the official Overcomer music video that the song spoke even more to my heart.  No matter how many […]

Under His Desk ~ From Legalism to Love

torn veil

1glimpse verb \ˈglim(p)s\ : to look at or see (something or someone) for a very short time. Are you convinced of God’s affection toward you? If you are, consider yourself very blessed.

The Porch of Idols ~ Guest Post by Cathy Maher

Recently I gained an important piece of understanding as to why I over eat at times. In our ThinWithin studies, we read about idols and sacrifices. I looked up some of the words in the verses and boy did I get an eye opener. 2 Chronicles 14 talks about the altar that was in the […]
