Tabitha AKA Dorcas- A Disciple of Christ

When we look at the story of Tabitha aka Dorcas, we see that she was a woman who loved serving her community. It is not clear whether Tabitha was a widow or not, scripture does not say, but what is does say is that she was disciple of Christ.   My attention has never centered on […]

Widow to Widow

God has been speaking a lot to me about the heart of a widow and what they need from others and also specifically from each other.   This week I will be speaking about the relationship of Naomi & Ruth and next week I will discussing Dorcas or in some translations Tabitha.  I believe in both […]

Generous Giving of One’s Self

 A couple of Sunday’s ago,  I heard a powerful message on giving of oneself.   The Pastor asked a pointed question that I will in turn ask you:  What would sacrificial giving look like for you?  How satisfied are you with your ability to give?

Be A Miracle in Someone’s Life

Last week’s post I spoke about the widow of Zarephath and  the prophet Elijah.   In this story we see a great miracle of God’s provision for Elijah and for the widow through the daily bread they were blessed with and promised through faith and obedience through a time period of drought.

The other part of the equation…

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27 NIV Love this verse — it resonates with my whole entire being and I desire wholeheartedly to minister to the orphans and widows.  Knowing the […]

Philippians 4:8 NIV   Have you ever found yourself in a pattern or funk of dwelling on the negative? This is something I […]

A Gift from God- John 3:16 I Love You The Most

Hello Friends & Family, It has been awhile since I made a blog post either from myself or from Lifesong for Orphans.  My dad became ill back in November 2014.  He passed away at the end of March 2015.  It has been a rough road since he passed.  I really have not fully or adequately grieved for […]
