We Are Good Because of His Grace ...

Posted by Shannon Biggs-Ross on March 14, 2012 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (0)

I'm speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it's important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him. Romans 12:3 (The Mess...

Does God Think Less of Me? ...

Posted by Shannon Biggs-Ross on March 13, 2012 at 2:10 PM Comments comments (0)

I was asked a question yesterday ... one that cut me to the core. one that stopped me in my tracks. one that came from an honest heart - "Do you think God looks down on me for making this decision?"

I lost my voice - tears filled my eyes - The pain, the sincere pain this person felt - made him feel like even God has turned his back on him. "If everyone is treating me like this" ... he stopped - "Sis, be honest with me, does God really look down on me for doing this?...

When we don't understand ...

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV) And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (ESV)

It's been a tough weekend for my family - One that makes you wish you could fast forward the clock 10 years from now just so you can make sense of all of this ...

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29“

This time of year isn't always pleasant or excitingly awaited for by everyone. Some folks dread this time of year - they wish they could hibernate from Black Friday to the New Year. The busyness of all the shopping centers, the money being spent that...

Stinky Attitude

Posted by Shannon Biggs-Ross on May 3, 2011 at 9:13 AM Comments comments (1)

"You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off the old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds." (Ephesians 4:22 NIV)

Have you ever struggled with a bad attitude? Lately I've had a real issue with my attitude. For some reason everything seems to effect it. And sadly, my attitude has been in total opposition with the way it should be, according to God's word.

I am a total...

Hidden in plain view

Posted by Shannon Biggs-Ross on May 3, 2011 at 8:39 AM Comments comments (0)

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3

Have you ever lost something that was right in front of you? In all true reality it isn't lost just hidden in plain view. I have this problem most often with my keys or cell phone. I look frantically everywhere for them then all of a sudden they jump out at me. I've probably looked at the item 100 times, yet it ...

Get Back Up

Posted by Shannon Biggs-Ross on April 19, 2011 at 9:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Do you ever feel defeated in your efforts? Maybe you feel like with one step forward you are swept three feet back. I can relate to those feelings. When we make the choice to give our life completely to Christ and live our life with Him first and center the enemy will throw at us, every arrow within his possession. When we dig in our heels and get real about this Faith we have in Jesus you can bet on it, the enemy steps up his game, but listen friend and I'm preaching t...

Washed by The Word

Posted by Shannon Biggs-Ross on April 18, 2011 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)

to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. Ephesians 5:26 (NLT)

Yesterday’s morning service began with the baptism of a five year old little girl. I love witnessing someone being baptized. Though there is nothing magical about the water in which a person is submersed into, it's truly an outward sign of what has taken place on the inside. It always takes me back to my baptism. They joy and excitement that filled my heart as I ...

God's Purpose for Marriage

Posted by Shannon Biggs-Ross on April 12, 2011 at 4:32 PM Comments comments (0)

"Marriage is more than your love for each other. It has a higher dignity and power, for it is God's holy institution through which God wishes to preserve humanity until the end of time. In your love you see only each other in the world; in marriage you are a link in the chain of generations that God, for the sake of His glory, allows to rise and fade away, and calls into His kingdom". Dietrich Bonhoeffer

B.F.F.L.

Hello Friends.

My oldest daughter is a pre-teen or a tween, as some call it. Though, this age at times can be challenging, she is lots of fun. Sometimes the silliness overwhelms me, but in all true honesty I'm really going to miss her silly talks as she grows up. If you were to dig through her binder or book bag the first thing you will notice is BFFL or BFF is written everywhere ... and I mean everywhere. Sometimes when she comes home from school the names of her BFFL can be found wri...
