Seeing Is Believing … Or Is It?

Seeing is Believing Or is It 060514by Victoria Robinson

If seeing is believing, then why do we sometimes struggle to believe? In the book of John, Jesus tells a large group of people, “But I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe.” It is easy for us to scoff at these pitiful people. Afterall, they saw and heard Jesus in the flesh. Unbelievable! Yet you and I are no different when we forget all our heavenly Father has done for us, and do not trust Him for our future.

What Will Your Restoration Look Like?

by Victoria Robinson

What does restoration look like? Is it an exact replication of what you have lost? Is it being able to reset the clock and go back in time? Being someone who likes antiques, old houses and historic buildings, restoration in my mind tends to go for transforming something back to it’s original state. But alas, that is not always an ideal solution.

In 1929 my grandparents got married and these sweet newlyweds purchased some furniture...

♥ Seeking Restoration ♥

by Victoria Robinson

Three times within the eightieth Psalm, the psalmist seeks restoration from God. Each time he says, “Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.” Our need for restoration comes from varied reasons. Sometimes it is due to our own sinfulness. Other times it is due to circumstances beyond our control. It can even be due to the need to intercede for someone else.

Overcoming Youthful Indiscretions

by Victoria Robinson

Girlfriends, from time to time the enemy of our souls will bring accusations to us about our past indiscretions. Shame, discouragement and even depression can result which is exactly the outcome Satan is striving for. While his striving is ultimately in vain, we must not allow these accusations to overtake us. The Word of God so beautifully states wonderful truths to retort back to the enemy and bring comfort to our hearts.

This Is YOUR Life!

by Victoria Robinson

In the song This Is Your Life, by Switchfoot, the question is posed, “This is your life, are you who you want to be?” Sometimes in life we can develop a “victim” mentality. That is based on the thinking—my life is not my fault. Things have happened to me along the way and I have no choice in what I have become. I can’t help but think about what a certain young man all of seventeen would have said about that idea...

A Forgetful Father

by Victoria Robinson

You expect them to do certain things and they are not reliable. However, there is someone who forgets certain things and yet is totally reliable. That would be your heavenly Father. The great thing about Him is that His love for us enables Him to forget our sins when we have repentant hearts...

Don’t Look Back!

Lamenting over your past is very harmful and will prevent you from enjoying your life today, as well as keep you from the divine future God has planned for you. Lot’s wife certainly experienced this when she looked back. Solomon tells us it is not good to question why our past was better...
