The Vehicle of TRUTH

“The Bride (Tried by Fire and Bound by God’s Love)”-Alicia R. Shipe

One thing I have always known but never understood how I knew it is: The Word of God does the cleaning, atoning, transforming, renewing, and every other transfiguration that occurs in, of, through, and under this world from the inside out and back around again (whatever that means to you). Every little detail of the Bible is available for review by any man, woman, or child to be tested and either denied, accepted, and/or activated. There are some who are unable to even contemplate the written word of God let alone find a safe place to hear it. GOD knows, Child. God knows. Some honestly don’t care. Who are we to tell them “You must do this and that!!”. God wants us to make our choices based on our free will not by what someone else thinks should happen. (Hey, writing that out was easier than I thought it would be). All of us, at one point or another, think we are God and think we understand more than we actually even know.

Rose of Sharon: A Tribute

November 21, 2018

RIP Cousin Sharon. See you on the other side when I get there.

Rose of Sharon
A Tribute

This past Thursday, November 15, 2018, my family laid a member to rest. She was a cousin, a mother, a grandmother, an aunt, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a defender/protector, a partner, and much more. She passed October 31st peacefully and quietly in her sleep sometime in the twilight before dawn. You may not know her but she is famous because she is a daughter of the Most High God (as we all are famous in His eyes). Her name is (yes IS) Sharon. I cannot speak about Sharon without also speaking about the rock of our family, Roseanne, my Great Grandmother (Grandma Rosie) who passed this plane of existence many years ago. That is why I titled this writing “Rose of Sharon”. Although this is a semi-tribute to our family, it is so much more than that. It is for the glory and honor of our Father God of Heaven and Earth and to every soul God uses this to reach. Without Him nothing else matters because He is THE Beginning and THE End. Everything is made through Him and NOTHING (no thing) was made without Him. (read John 1:1-4 and Isaiah 45:6-7) Continue reading
