Simple Obedience

Posted by Shelli Ragle on

How can one person change the world? Honestly, one person alone can’t. But one person doing their part as a member of the larger body of Christ makes a mighty difference. “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And that which I can do, by the...

Holy Beano

Posted by Shelli Ragle on

Have you ever craved something that makes you sick (emotionally and/or physically), but you give in to it anyway? I sometimes crave horribly-fattening-but-oh-so-good food that I know only provides temporary satisfaction. For instance, I know that Taco Casa messes me up somethin’ fierce...

Take A Bite Out Of Sin

Posted by Shelli Ragle on

This devotional dedicated to my elder sister. When I was younger, my parents would sometimes leave the house for one reason or another (probably to get away from their crazy daughters) and leave my older sister in charge. Seven years my elder (Gosh, I love calling her my elder.), she was the...

God's Fingerprints

Posted by Shelli Ragle on

And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that [Jesus] was reclining at a table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of...

Losing Control Of Self Control

If I can get a BOGO (buy one get one) deal on Dr. Pepper, chips, ice cream — or anything, for that matter — it’s a great day, and I’m gonna stock up. Even better, put the candy and gum at the checkout line on a BOGO deal, and I’m in heaven. Maybe sooner than I want...

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. — Ephesians 2:10 NIV We are whack. It’s something we all have in common. And common ground is a great place to start when we want to figure out how best to reach...

Light It Up

Posted by Shelli Ragle on

You got this! You gonna kill it! OK, don’t kill it. (Or anything else, for that matter. Thou shalt not kill, remember?) But you are a winner! Can I get a what, what?! Hype it up, y’all! We’re on the winning team! Hello?! I can’t hear you! Fo’ real tho, I wanna...

God Cares. Do You?

Posted by Shelli Ragle on

I recall a period in my life when it felt like God wasn’t listening. I’d heard that when we sin, we are separated from God. So, in this season of life, while I was struggling with sin in a big way, I just assumed that God had written me off. I know now that I was wrong. I had been...

Your Verse

Posted by Shelli Ragle on

One of my favorite poems is Walt Whitman’s “O Me! O Life!” The best part of it, for me, is this: …That you are here—that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. — “O Me! O Life!”, from Leaves of...
