Grain, New Wine, and Oil That Satisfy!

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Grain, New Wine, & Oil That Satisfy

      I opened up to Joel 2:19 and saw something that I had never noticed before: “I am sending you grain, new wine, and oil – enough to satisfy you fully.” If these three things – grain, new (as opposed to old) wine, and oil – were important enough to mention in the Word, […]

Stop Digging!

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Wanda - Stop Digging

    Have you  ever heard the saying,  “If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging?” I woke up with this saying in my mind early one morning. I started to think, How was I digging in regards to food?  I realized that I was sabotaging myself and digging a deeper hole that I […]

Don’t Hang Up on God!

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Don't Hang Up on God

  One day, I was out shopping with my youngest son of four children. Weaving our way through many aisles, we eventually found ourselves in the cereal aisle.

Pain and God’s Will

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Pain and God's Will

.   I’ve come to realize that what I’ve been through – the pain I have been experiencing – is necessary for me. I don’t know why God chose this path for me, but I’m sure there is something He wants to bring out of me, and pain is the only way it’s coming out. […]

Are You Dabbling in Shallow Water?

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Are You Dabbling in Shallow Water

It was silent, and I couldn’t see it, and I could not hear it. The water was cool and calm, easily flowing down the mighty river. The sun was shining and warming my face while the locusts buzzed, the birds sang, and a cool summer breeze blew through my hair. The scenery was wonderful.   […]

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - When it's not right to be thankful

Imagine a pile of gifts under the Christmas tree. Actually, no need to imagine; here’s the exact scenario I’m talking about…   Now imagine that one of the gifts has this message on the tag: “Do not open until December 25!” (See further down.)

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Set Your Transformation in MOTION by Heidi B

        Years ago, I looked at what search parameters were bringing people to the Thin Within blog on New Year’s Day. I noticed each January that people had typed into Google their earnest question, “Is God is doing a new thing?” I don’t know if Google is clear on the answer, so I definitely […]

What Diets CAN’T Do, God CAN!

TW GRAPHIC - What Diets Can't Do, God Can

We usually search out and go on diets as a knee-jerk response to that moment when we step on the scale, look too long into the mirror, or fail to fit a clothing item that we used to wear with ease. We freak out at the number on the scale or the pants that would […]
