Sign up in the side bar for my weekly devotions on the topic:
Seeing ourselves as God sees us
God’s perspective is the true and perfect one and as we learn to accept God’s truth about our position in his eyes, we can feel more confident in our relationship with God. He knows all he achieved for us through Christ’s death and resurrection and wants us to walk in truth.
The devotions will be approximately 300 words long which I’ve found to be about the length churches require if they are using them for their newsletter. Please feel free to forward these devotions to friends or churches. Permission is granted to republish these devotions provided this isn’t for commercial gain.

As a thank you gift you will be able to download a free chapter of my current manuscript:
Miriam – Living by faith beyond past victories
This is a chapter from the manuscript that I’m currently working on called, 10 Biblical Women Who Made a Difference.
Can our lives really make a difference?
Miriam made a difference. When Miriam left Egypt, she packed her tambourine. She packed it in faith, believing God would rescue them from the Egyptians and knowing she would need it to celebrate God’s goodness. She celebrated a great victory on the far side of the Red Sea.
But later Miriam struggled with Moses’ leadership. She teaches us not to rely on past victories.
