At the Movies

What makes you most anxious?

There is a  line from the movie Loving Leah. 386b57bae6b50e83b57bce931505ff1cOne of my favorites. 

“A mother is only as happy as her saddest child.”  

For me, that extends to my grands, and now my great-grands. 
Anything that threatens their well-being sends me to my knees in prayer on their behalf and my own that I will faithfully trust His goodness and love for them and for me. 

If you would like to watch the movie Loving Leah you may find it on Amazon Prime and even on Youtube.

If you want the help of GOD, you may find Him in the pages of Scripture. I hope you will seek Him with all your heart.
Otherwise, there is MUCH to be anxious about and that’s not a movie with a happy ending. 

Love, Kathie 

P.S. the movie . . .  is it theologically correct?
No, but that doesn’t take away (for me) the wholesome romance. 

Kept House

Oh my! girl

It’s March? 

2023 is speeding by. 
I have to ask myself: What have I done with it? 

Let’s see. I have loved-on my great-grands and my grands. I’ve done some reading and some writing. Kept house. Visited a bit. And prayed a lot. But there is always, always more praying to do – not as a chore but a holy delight! 
Now for the most important question. 

Have I been a co-laborer with GOD?  1 Corinthians 3:9-11

It’s Wednesday — make it count, Friends.

Love, Kathie 

Chiming In

From time to time I chime in 715zh0bU8zL._AC_SL1000_on Facebook with a post beginning with: While Minding my own business thoughts. Tonight I am bringing it here.

The majority of organized churches proudly preach that JESUS hung out with sinners. This is misleading.

This Western Gospel was crafted to make Jesus appealing to the masses; to make Him sinner-friendly, and non-judgmental. To make Him Comforting. Soothing. Affirming. Etc.
And He is comforting, soothing, affirming, encouraging, loving, and a multitude of other wonderful nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs TO HIS SAINTS.

Dig into Scripture and see this for yourself.

Indeed JESUS went to the home of Zacchaeus, the tax collector, and to the house of a Pharisee. With each sinner (Pharisee, tax collector, or prostitute) He encountered one of two things followed. Either the sinner repented of his or her sins and followed Jesus as LORD and Messiah, or they rejected Him, walked away, or even joined in with the Religious Leaders in their plot to kill Him.    (Luke 19:1-10. Luke 7:36-50.)

It is inaccurate and deadly to paint JESUS as a wimpy, sin-condoning, party god.

JESUS did not, nor does He now make sinners comfortable in their sins.
We cannot PRACTICE sin and walk with JESUS. (Isaiah 59:2)

Read your Bible.

Let me repeat.
Sinners who encountered  JESUS back then and still do today, do one of two things: they either repent of their sins and follow Him or they reject Him and walk away from Him.

As His Followers, we should have that same reputation.
If we can hang out with unrepentant sinners and they are content and happy to do so for months and years – we can know we are not living or loving like JESUS.  I realize that is a hard statement. It nails me too. I have a long way to go! But I am going forward even as I recommend to you with prayer, moment-by-moment obedience, more prayer, Scripture, more prayer and fasting, and as best I know how following Holy Spirit as He leads me into all my relationships – family included, my most precious.

That’s it for now — until I Chime In again may the peace of GOD rule in you and me.

Love, Kathie

Used to be Sins

Since I could not, not write it, I might as well publish it.

Jesus didn’t come because we are just messed up.

He didn’t come because we make mistakes.

He did not have to be born into the limitations of time and the human body because we make mistakes – uh oh I bought a red sweater when the memo said to get a blue one. That’s a mistake!

He came because we are sinners, not just messed up people who make mistakes. And when we do turn from our sins TO HIM we are then transformed from sinner to Saint and we spend the rest of our time on this earth learning to live Saintly.

No more excuses oh I’m just a sinner, GOD understands I can’t help it.

That’s a lie from hell!

If we are born again, Holy Spirit lives within us.


Are we going to say He in us can’t stop this continual practice of the same old sin over and over and over again?

Are we going to say He can’t deliver us from this perpetual state described as messed up?

Because if we are we better check and see if we actually KNOW The GOD of The BIBLE.

We better make sure we are not preaching on behalf of and serving the god of this world.

It is no honor to GOD when we continue to confess year after year that we are messed up. No!

Preach that without repentance and conversion people are hell-deserving sinners and everyone that dies without turning from sin to GOD will burn in hell. No exceptions.

BUT UPON CONVERSION, when we are indwelt by Holy Spirit we learn to practice less and less sin.

We become victorious over sin day after day.

Anything less fails to give GOD the glory He deserves.

Here’s the truth, some sins I don’t struggle with – they are not even on my radar anymore. Holy Spirit has delivered me from them. I don’t practice them. Am I saying I am victorious over every sin?


But I am making progress in my walk with HIM.

I won’t fully make it here (sinless) but that is no excuse to just give up and give in to temptations.

No. No. No.


If you cannot say you are making progress and there are ‘used to be sins’ that you just don’t practice anymore, then I am begging you to check to see if you really have a Damascus Road experience with JESUS. Find out if you are truly indwelt by Holy Spirit. See Acts 9. Isaiah 30:15

Ask GOD to let you know if you really have turned from your sins to HIM and read your Bible and continue to pray until He answers you from the pages of your Bible.

Love and good night, Kathie

Go After It!

Luke 17

I have not much to say about Luke 17 today because I have more questions than answers.
I have done what I suggest you do when you read Scripture and have few to no answers but questions instead: take those questions to GOD. Write them down, keep reading, and wait for His answers. 

And you may have to do what I have done: “LORD, I don’t understand this passage so good and previous things I have been taught crop up here, but I want to know The Truth even if I don’t like it.”

Albeit, I know this from the first verse — life here is not ‘rosie’ and there are people here who actually set snares for other people. We must be on guard – not to retaliate but to be ready so that we don’t step into the snare. 
HOLY SPIRIT is here to help us with that. 

And I gather from verse 9 that we are healthier if we come to terms and agreement with this: “We’re just ordinary slaves, we have only done our duty.” as we serve The LORD and as we patiently endure the sufferings He allows to come upon us. 

I have found it enormously helpful to remember: GOD is ALWAYS good and we (His Children) are ALWAYS loved. 

There is much more in Chapter 17go after it Brothers and Sisters! 


Love, Kathie
