Remember Me Lord

Daily Christian Devotionals

When others are putting down Jesus, stand up for Him. When people blaspheme His Name, call them out. Lift up the Lord for He desires our honor and praise. It is taught that if we lift up the Name of Jesus and call upon His Name, we are saved. Just as the thief on the cross, on Calvary, was convicted of his faults and turned to Jesus. Though He was being put to death, by the people, because of His great sins, the Lord took Him in. All it took was a change of heart. As He was found convicted by the love of Jesus, he began to lift Him up. He witnessed to the other thief that He was a good man. It is written, “And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering…

Jesus Died Unto Sin

Daily Christian Devotionals

There is a new beginning for each of you and it begins with the cross. Because Jesus “died unto sin”, we have forgiveness and mercy. Through His resurrection, those in Christ “liveth unto God”. Look to Jesus for salvation. Through His sacrifice over sins we are promised eternal life if we believe in Him. If you take His hand He will do wondrous things in your life.

We are no longer in the likeness of the world but “in the likeness of his resurrection”. Our bodies no longer need the effects of sin to give us temporary satisfaction. We do “not serve sin” for we find our fullness in Christ. This…

Seek The Kingdom Of God

Daily Christian Devotionals

Seek the kingdom of God first in your lives. Jesus is the way to eternal happiness in this life and the life to come. Do you know this personally in your life? Have you been born again into His love? Can you see Jesus in your daily walk? If you can’t answer yes to these questions than your heart isn’t in the right place. Your treasure is apart from God.

Love Between Husband and Wife

Daily Christian Devotionals

The love manifested between man and woman is an instinct given by God. From the beginning God created man and woman to love one another. The feelings we get when we are around our significant other are amazing. Just looking into their eyes can carry us away into new heights. The touch of their hands can give us chills for we are overcome with so much joy. These were the same feelings that Isaac and Rebecca had when they first saw each other. It is recorded that “Rebekah lifted her eyes, and when she saw Isaac she dismounted from her camel.” As she gazed at Isaac she asked “Who is this man walking in the field to meet us?” After discovering it was Isaac, the servants master, she was caught up in radiant love and took a veil to cover herself. It was this same feeling of immense happiness that…

Childhood trauma leads to lifelong chronic illness — so why isn’t the medical community helping patients?

ACEs Too High

ADonnaDadWhen I was twelve, I was coming home from swimming at my neighbor’s dock when I saw an ambulance’s flashing lights in our driveway. I still remember the asphalt burning my feet as I stood, paralyzed, and watched the paramedics take away my father. It was as if I knew those flashing lights were a harbinger that my childhood was over.

At the hospital, a surgeon performed “minor” elective bowel surgery on my young dad. The surgeon made an error, and instead of my father coming home to the “welcome home” banners we’d painted, he died.

The medical care system failed my father miserably. Then the medical care system began to fail me.

At fourteen, I started fainting. The doctors implied I was trying to garner attention. In college I began having full seizures. I kept them to myself, fearful of seeming a modern Camille. I’d awaken on the floor drenched…
