Are Troubles Really for My Good?

Are the changes we experience really necessary for us to get with the program! Are you tried of how you are bombarded with hardships and yet some of your friends and those around you seems to be living on easy street. It seems as though God picks certain people to carry the burdens of this world and let's others slide by and enjoy their lives. I realize that God says in His word, that the troubles of this world are to help develop our dependency on Him; making us God-dependent. Have you found this to … [Read more...]

In His Time God Speaks

After a great visit with my parents, my daughter and I headed back home. My precious little one, gave her grandma and grandpa a day of excitement and unforgettable memories. She played and ran until the three of them became exhausted. Just as I was thinking about all the fun we had, I looked back to see how my daughter was doing, and found she was fast asleep. As I looked ahead, out of nowhere a car was headed right at me. The next thing I knew, I was sitting still in the middle of the road, and the … [Read more...]

A Spirit That Cannot Be Broken

Life can deliver very cold and bitter blows to its surroundings. Many times it comes in the form of heartache and deep sorrow.

When hard times come, we find ourselves struggling with such intense fear and loneliness, that only the help of others can reduce the load of anxiety we are carrying. Friends comes in many forms. We find those that look at our circumstances and try to help us figure out … [Read more...]

Seeing Sin As God Sees Sin

In the years that have followed my born again experience, my sin life revealed itself in ways I never saw at the first start of my faith walk in Christ Jesus. In fact, one thing I had become quite good at was seeing others sins and making a judgment call on them. God wanted me not to judge others but to first look into my own life, see sin as God sees sin, confess my sins, and make the necessary changes to become more like Him. He had a job for me to do, to love people where they were, and most … [Read more...]

The Old Nature Vs. The New Nature

When I became born again at the age of 26, I struggled for years with trying to understand the old nature (human nature) vs. the new nature (the holiness of Christ "In" us). So with that in mind, living for Jesus Christ, and displaying His attitude and disposition on a daily basis, was what I wanted to achieve more than anything in life. And yet I found myself repeatedly falling back into the old nature's thinking, emotions and lifestyle. Fortunately for me, God brought a few select Christians to help … [Read more...]

Defending Those Who Need Help God’s Way

We are all built in different ways. Some of us are meek but willing, others are bold and daring. Then there are the bullies in this world that don't care who they hurt or what they say to others. It takes God's strength through each of us to confront bullies; people that are willing to step out no matter what the risks might be. You might be called to this task, so get prayed up, and get yourself ready. Esther, a Jewish girl, who had become a queen to King Ahasuerus had to take some huge risks in order … [Read more...]

Make The Mess In Your Life A Message

Greetings my dear friends and how in the world are you? I was thinking about the importance of taking the mess of our life and making it a message for Jesus Christ. He can only be glorified through those who are willing to expose their weakness in exchange for His strength and honor. A concept forbidden by those with self-sufficiency and self-dependency and self-deception as their main support system. Welcome to God's Workmanship. I'm Miriam Miller, and would like to speak to you on Make the Mess in Your … [Read more...]

Tempted While Tested By The Disagreeable

Are you one who leans more toward your own understanding and rejects the counsel of God? Or, do you take every thought captive and bring it into the obedience of Jesus Christ? Welcome to God's Workmanship. I'm Miriam Miller, and would like to speak to you on Tempted while Tested by the Disagreeable. In every disagreeable situation, God is allowing you and me … [Read more...]

Spiritual Undertow

Spiritual Undertow came to my mind,  as I was  talking to a woman the other day. She shared with me a conversation she had with her son about living free of addictions. The mother and son had both given their lives to Jesus Christ many years ago. One day the son was asking her, "Why are you the only one in the family that seems to have a peaceful and happy life?" After their visit, the mother began to ponder the question her son had asked her. After thinking about it, she realized that she had chosen to … [Read more...]
