A relationship with Jesus

A relationship with Jesus

by Emily Thomes

“I told the staff today that I have a deeply personal relationship with God that I do not proselytize about, but I do, and I have been working that relationship tremendously, which I do anyway, but I’ve been focused on it intensely for the past couple of weeks..” – Rush Limbaugh Read the rest of this entry

Story time for the Christians-

Today I was at the nail salon getting this shellack removed. I tried to do it on my own, but I’m not skilled enough apparently. Anyway, I’m there listening to “Practical Religion” by Ryle and not talking to anyone and realize what a hypocrite I am. I’m filling my head and heart with scripture and beautiful truths of the faith literally surrounded by a group of people that are most likely Buddhists and are without hope unless they come to know Him. So, I press ‘pause’ on my earbuds and begin to think about how to begin a conversation about the Lord. Read the rest of this entry

Ectopic pregnancies

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Ectopic pregnancies

by Emily Thomes

“When I tell people that there is no medical reason for an abortion, people often bring up the issue of ectopic pregnancies. Even well meaning, concerned pro-life people bring this up. They don’t know how to answer it and for this reason may say they are “pro life with exceptions”. This is the loophole pro aborts need to push abortion on demand, without restrictions, and without apology. If we are to abolish the evil of abortion, we would do a service to ourselves to better understand what is (and is not) an ectopic and how it relates to abortion. Read the rest of this entry

Lordship and obedience

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Lordship and obedience

by Emily Thomes

“”Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.””
‭‭- Luke‬ ‭6:46-49‬ Read the rest of this entry

Police

Police

by Emily Thomes

Apparently it’s viewed by some as acceptable for Christians to mock police officers— not those that have actually committed offenses worthy of such, but all cops. Meanwhile, my husband is still not home from working his second straight night because he and the other night officers are out looking for a disabled teen who may be in danger.

Addiction

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Addiction

by Emily Thomes

Before 2014, I had a lot of “addictions.” My biggest issue wasn’t my promiscuity or the drugs, though; it was my heart. I was slave to my sin and dead in my trespasses; to say that I was addicted to the things that the Lord hates and warns against in His word is an understatement. By His grace, He delivered me from the wrath I deserved for my sin. In doing so, He led me out of practicing homosexuality, drug abuse, uncontrollable anger, and more. I’m not without sin today by any means, but He has grown me to be like His Son and is continuing to do so more each day. Even had I gotten sober and straightened out my life some, without Jesus, I would still not truly be “clean”. More than my bad behavior, I needed a clean heart. Only being born again can save us. Turn not just to sober living but to Jesus as Lord and be made clean from the inside out. #cleanchallenge

Emily Thomes

Emily Thomes once lived a lesbian lifestyle.  She considered herself a Christian but only believed those parts of the Bible that didn’t condemn her way of life.  She began attending a Bible study about the attributes of God and as she came to understand God better she also began to see herself as she really was.  Here is her description of what happened.

I was grieved that my whole life I’d been sinning against Him, not only in my dating life but in every other way, too. My drunkenness, my haughtiness, my refusal to submit to what had been plain in His word all along but that I’d denied because I didn’t want to give up my autonomy; I claimed faith but had no concern with what God actually said or wanted of me. I was overwhelmed with the love and mercy He was showing me in letting me live long enough to repent and truly trust in Him. I didn’t know what my life would be like or what I was going to do, but I knew what I was not going to do anymore. It was incredibly clear. That day was the day the Lord granted me eyes to see Him as holy and righteous and myself as a sinner desperately in need of His forgiveness and grace.
