As a homeschool mom of 4, a few quiet moments to myself with a hot cup of coffee or tea are a treasure. It's so hard to decide what to do with my alone time - crafts, baking, reading - this blog could be about so many of those things I enjoy. But, I think I will focus on one that I am most passionate about and that is making the truths of God's word applicable to every area of my life. Through books I read and my personal Bible Study, I hope to share with you some of the things God has taught me about living the abundant life promised in my salvation through His Son, Jesus. Of course, the best way to learn is by having fun, so I'm sure my hobbies will find their place here too. I hope you will join me for a little "T Time".
P.S. When I find a blog or website I find interesting, I like to know what point of view they are coming from because there are so many people and ministries out there that claim to be Christian, but really are not - so, here is what I believe:
1) that the Bible is the Word of God, without error in the original writings, and that it is sufficient and authoritative for our lives today.
2) in the true, living God. He is the infinite, all-knowing, all-powerful, ever present creator of everything.
3) that Jesus Christ, the God-man, came to earth, through the virgin birth, lived the perfect life we could not live, died a sacrificial death we could not die, rose three days later to conquer death, and ascended back to the Father.
4) that the Holy Spirit, as a divine person, convicts of sin, righteousness, and judgment. The Spirit was active in creation. When someone repents of their sin and trusts in Christ, the Holy Spirit comes into the life of that individual to teach them and guide them in the Word and to live a life of holiness.
5) that Satan is real and active. Like those who rebel against God, he will experience judgment and eternal punishment in the lake of fire.
6) that when someone is born again, they are a new creature. They are to live a life of faith pleasing to God. They are to produce spiritual fruit for God. This is accomplished through consistent time in prayer, Bible study, and gathering with fellow believers in corporate worship.
