My God is so GREAT

This week I’m teaching a lesson about when Gideon’s army of 300 defeated Midian’s great army. (Judges 7)

This is a perfect song for that lesson. But it’s also a perfect song for today. Our God Reigns. He has not forgotten us. He can win every battle. He is worthy of our trust and our praise, yesterday, today, and forever.

Psalm 93

The LORD reigns; he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed;
he has put on strength as his belt.
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
Your throne is established from of old; you are from everlasting.
The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods lift up their roaring.
Mightier than the thunders of many waters,
mightier than the waves of the sea,
the LORD on high is mighty!
Your decrees are very trustworthy;
holiness befits your house, O LORD, forevermore.

#PrayforCollierville

My heart goes out to everyone in my town of Collierville, Tennessee, following the tragic shooting that took place yesterday in our local grocery store.

I wish I could more, but I can pray and I can share the gospel. I want to do what God has equipped me to do.

Please pray for the friends and families of those who were shot as well as the shooter.

Please pray for the first responders and law enforcement officers working on the case.

Please pray for the Christians and churches in our area to be a beacon of light and hope in the darkness.

Please pray for revival all across our country and our world.

Come quickly, Lord, and in the meantime strengthen us to be about our Father’s business of sharing the good news of the gospel and making disciples.

A Former Atheist Looks at the Attributes of God

My newest ebook is now available on Kindle. In fact, it’s FREE from September 6-8, so get yourself a copy!

Just search for Kim Endraske on Amazon. πŸ˜€ One of the blessings of an unusual name!

I’m still working on getting it in paperback form – hopefully it will be ready soon!

God transformed me from an Evangelical Atheist to Evangelical Christian when I was 21 years old. Believing that God existed was step one … truly knowing God was step two.

Have you ever wished that someone would clearly and simply explain to you what God is like?

Do you want to know the self-existent and self-sufficient, infinite and eternal, immutable and omniscient, all-wise and all-powerful, transcendent and omnipresent, good and faithful and loving and merciful and sovereign and holy God?

As a new Christian, I needed someone to help me to know God. “A Former Atheist Looks at the Attributes of God” does just that.

I am certain that the more you know God, the more you will love and trust Him.

This book is based on the notes for an online study I led with a group of international women. It includes many scripture passages in English as well as Chinese.

Each chapter includes a variety of self-reflection and discussion questions which I hope will be used for your personal study or your own small group study!

May God be glorified as we know Him more fully and accurately.

May our passion to make Him known to the ends of the earth grow as we know God more.

May the Lord Jesus shine brightly as we better know who He is and what He has done for us.

Glow in the Dark

Jesus is the true light of the world (John 8:12, John 12:46). He is the source of all that is good and light.

But the Bible also says that, as His children, we are the light of the world. (Matthew 5:14-16)

It reminds me of the moon. The moon cannot make its own light. The moon reflects the light from the sun. Likewise, I shine because God lives in me and His light shines from me.

I want to be a spotlight – pointing people to Jesus, the source of the light coming from me πŸ‘‰ ✝️

“Glow In The Dark” by Jason Gray

Sometimes the world feels like a mess
Full of drama, full of stress
And life puts a fist right in your ribs
You can hide if you choose to
And no one would even blame you
Or you can let them see how you deal with it

That even in the darkest place
His love can make you radiate

Doesn’t matter how deep, how dark the night is
Keep hoping, keep on shining
And they’ll see His light burning in your heart
And if the road gets rough, just keep your head up
Let the world see what you’re made of
That His love’s alive in your deepest parts
Like a flame, like a burning star you can shine right where you are
He made you to glow in the dark

Don’t be ashamed of your past
If you’re shattered like a piece of glass
The more broke you are the more the light gets through
Show your wounds and your flaws
Show them why you still need the cross
Let them see the work He’s doing in you

That even in the darkest place
His love can make you radiate

Doesn’t matter how deep, how dark the night is
Keep hoping, keep on shining
And they’ll see His light burning in your heart
And if the road gets rough, just keep your head up
Let the world see what you’re made of
That His love’s alive in your deepest parts
Like a flame, like a burning star you can shine right where you are
He made you to glow in the dark

Doesn’t matter how deep, how dark the night is
Keep hoping, keep on shining
And they’ll see His light burning in your heart
And if the road gets rough, just keep your head up
Let the world see what you’re made of
That His love’s alive in your deepest parts
Like a flame, like a burning star you can shine right where you are
He made you to glow in the dark
Glow in the dark

A Mother’s Day Prayer

May our mouths be full of kindness.

May the teaching of kindness be on our lips.

May we look well to the needs of our households.

May our children and our husband rise up and call us blessed.

May our hearts and minds be full of the peace, love, hope, and joy of Jesus Christ the Son of God who came into the world to save sinners like me!

“She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: β€œMany women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.” Proverbs 31:26-31

A Visual Representation of Redemption, Propitiation, Justification and Imputation.

Quite a few years ago, I spent two years studying the book of Romans precept upon precept. It was amazingly fruit bearing.

During that study, I created a visual representation to help me remember four key Biblical terms: Redemption, Propitiation, Justification and Imputation. These terms are words used often in scripture, but not used often in our everyday lives.

I pray it would be a blessing to you.
