Freedom: Monday Manna for November 15

I'm over at the Barn Door today (my first post over there - check it out!) talking a bit about the difference in weather where I grew up and here. I'd love for you to check out "I Never Appreciated..." and let me know what you think!

And now, back to the business at hand :)

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

On the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse--posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be long -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional. Just post it on your blog on Mondayish (early OR late is fine, by the way!), then come back here and link up in the Linky Tools gadget that will be at the bottom of MY post at o'dark thirty that morning.

I'm reading in 1 Peter during my "Bible In A Year" Plan this week. So many gems in there - but this one in particular made me think. Hope it does the same for you!
Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 1 Peter 2:16 NIV
 Looking forward to your thoughts on this. Hope to see you right here on Monday!

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. It makes me think about how we are forgiven for all our sins after we ask for it and come to Christ. However, that doesn't give us the license to keep sinning the same sins and asking for forgiveness just because we know God will give it. This isn't true fruitfulness and it isn't sincere repentance.

  2. Going to go and check it out!


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!

My One Word: 2016 and 2017

Most who know me know I am a very goal-oriented person (in fact, I already shared my goal wrap-up for 2016 and my new ones for 2017 on this...
