"IF We Turn Back, THEN Our Healing Will Come"By Terri Broome Yes, IF you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, IF you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, THEN you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:3-5 If is on me. Then is on God. I went through a horrible time recently. I had no idea what
"The Truth About My Failures"By Terri Broome I went to school for nine months to learn how to become a hairstylist. Ben Carson is a retired neurosurgeon. It took him about fifteen years of higher education to learn how to operate on the human nervous system (especially the brain and spinal cord). I work on the outside of the head, he works on the inside of the head. Is it really that different?   A bad haircut is
"The Only Thing God Ever Stole"By Terri Broome “Fear makes us live in the land of “What if?”” Fear is the most dominating emotion on the planet (can I get a witness?). When we are full of it, our minds get completely hijacked. It has the ability to make us irrational, subservient to people we don’t even like, full of stress and anxiety, lower our morals, and very needy. Fear makes us live in the
The Most Dangerous AddictionBy Terri Broome Hello, my name is Terri Broome and I’m a self-aholic. I think all of our church services should start that way. It’s the truth. All our problems stem from one place… our own conceit. “Enough about me, let’s talk about you, what do you think about me?” It’s funny but tragically true. The LORD detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.
What if We are all Spiritual Millionaires and We Just Don’t Know It?By Terri Broome I’ve heard people say they just want to get away from everything. Sometimes, they want to move to another place and start over. Maybe it’s their job that is stressing them out, money problems, relationship issues, the list is endless. I always say, “There is only one problem, you have to take your head with you.” “Peace never comes from
Who Knew the Grocery Store Could Become the Holy of Holies?By Terri Broome But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.  We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;  persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also
This Time in History Shouldn't Scare Us, it Should Motivate UsBy Terri Broome “What I meditate on will shape my entire outlook on life.” Good news rarely makes the headlines. We are inundated 24/7 with the horrible things happening all over the world. It’s on our phones, computers, and televisions. The world is falling apart. I have gotten to the place where I rarely watch the news. I can’t do anything about it and what
People Should Want to Hit Us or Kiss usBy Terri Broome Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Romans 12:11 How many of us have gone on a diet, lost a lot of weight, and gotten rid of our “fat clothes?” A year later, we are in the same size we were before (maybe even a little bigger). Or, we start exercising in January. We wake up early to
God Will Take Care of Us, Even When He Doesn’tBy Terri Broome Four people were on the planet when the first unjust murder happened. As soon as the first parents (Adam and Eve) produced two humans (Cain and Abel), hatred was in one of those humans for the other one. We are told in the New Testament what the reason was. It’s a terrible reason, but it’s the reason nonetheless. Do not be like Cain,
People PleasersBy Terri Broome A friend asks, “Do I look fat in this dress?”  “No, we answer, you look very pretty.” “We do not want to be the truth teller when it’s uncomfortable. We have the deadly disease of people pleasing.” It happens all the time. We lie. Our friend looks like the broad side of a barn, yet we let her wear the dress out in public. Why? We can’t stand the uncomfortable feeling
God’s Doulos (Slave)By Terri Broome “Jesus made Himself less than a doormat.” “God doesn’t expect me to be a doormat.” When I hear that phrase, I cringe. So much is wrapped up in that mentality. The main word it conjures up in my mind is “entitlement.” Jesus made Himself less than a doormat. A doormat only gets feet wiped on it. It only gets dirty. Much worse happened to Jesus… by choice. Who, being in
Be an InfluencerBy Terri Broome Our lives are not lived alone. We influence everyone around us for good or bad. What we sow into lives will be reaped long past our physical lives. “Soon I will be dead and you will be too. We can’t control that fact, but we are in complete control of the influence we leave behind.” I used to have a timeline from Barnes and Noble that looked like a book
