Choose Life!

Every day in life we make choices – lots of choices. Some choices are big, some are small, some very important, and some fairly trivial. God is so cool! He gives us the choice to choose life or death. He even tells us which to choose (sort of like a cheat sheet!) We are to choose life! I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and...

Still Small Voice & Cornbread Muffins!

One day, years ago, I was working in my home office and I heard God’s still small voice whisper to me, “Get up and make cornbread muffins for Larry and take them to him.” I was busy with my work and argued, “But Lord, not now, I am so busy.” A few minutes later, the voice spoke again, “Tina, get up and make cornbread muffins for Larry and take them to him NOW!” Again I argued, “Lord, I don’t have all the ingredients and will have to go to the...

Do You Call Good What God Calls Evil?

There is an old adage:  “All it takes for evil to prosper is for good men to do nothing.” In the church today is a grievous twisting of the Word becoming prevalent.  Many say we must love what God says we are to hate.  They believe that it is being loving and showing grace.  But it is a perverted teaching of God’s love and grace.  If we say we must love what God hates, we are saying we are holier than God!  God does not...

Many of you don’t know that my ministry, The Encouragement Center, was started almost twenty years ago with the original name “Romans 8:1 Ministries”.   My heart was, and always will be, to tell people that God is good and that He loves them...

How Do I Know God is Good?

How do I know that God is Good? Because the Bible tells me so! No one is good but One, that is God.  Luke 18:19b Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!  Psalm 34:8 Once you know – without a doubt – that God is good, you can approach Him in all confidence, knowing He won’t hurt you, won’t bring suffering to you, will never leave you or let you down.  He is always there in time of...

Do You Practice What You Preach?

When a friend calls you and asks you for advice, do you find it easy to rattle off some wonderful words of wisdom?  Do you often find you have the answers for everyone’s problems?  Do you ever lecture people about what they need to do to get out of their troubling situations? My friend, Stephanie, always tells people who ask her for advice, “What would you tell a friend who asked you this question?”  Boy, if that doesn’t make one stop and think...

The Voice of God

The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. Romans 8:16 Sometimes it can be hard to know if the voice we are hearing is God’s voice. There are many things we can know without fail that they are of God because they are in the Word. But what about things that don’t have chapter and verse? Things like where to live, where to work, who to marry, and more. How do we hear Him then? One important thing to...
