Jesus Blog: It is a Lie. I Have No Part In That.

More today from my Saturday “Jesus Blog” – a word from Jesus to you… God may be leading you to love like you have never loved before. To love people you have been taught to reject and even hate.

Jesus Blog: I’ve Got This & I’ve Got You

More today from my Saturday “Jesus Blog” – a word from Jesus to you… Is it time to let go? Of a situation; of loved ones; of control; of worry; of resentment?

Jesus Blog: If There’s No Love In It, It’s Not Me

More today from my Saturday “Jesus Blog” – a word from Jesus to you… Don't be afraid of me. Whatever you've been told about me, if it makes you afraid, then it's not true.

Jesus Blog: An Empty Bag

More today from my Saturday “Jesus Blog” – a word from Jesus to you… Remember Mary Poppins?

She did not … Continue reading Jesus Blog: An Empty Bag

Jesus Blog: Restore the Beauty of Home

More today from my Saturday “Jesus Blog” – a word from Jesus to you… Home. A place of welcome, acceptance, rejuvenation. A place to be safe and to be loved, without condition.
