I'm a Modern Day Abolitionist

Posted by Tina kadolph on October 8, 2013 at 10:15 PM Comments comments (12)


As I pray about the horrors of human trafficking, my heart is always heavy.

God does not want his children to be raped, drugged, beaten, and sold for sex. He does not want his children to have all their human rights ripped away from them. He doesn’t want for them held in the bondage of slavery.

It is beyond my comprehension that there are people who would do these horrors to women, men, and helpless child...

My Plans ~ But God's Plan Prevails

Posted by Tina kadolph on February 18, 2013 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (1)

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” ~ Proverbs 19:21 NIV

All through my life, I’d have to say that I’ve made my plans and God almost always redirects them. I see this over and over again since I started leading mission trips. I make all the plans, think of everything I could possibly think of...and God thinks of something better. Go figure. But I love how He not only changed my plans, but also tur...

Are You Wired?

Quit taking control. God wants His job back.

If anyone would ask me if I was a control freak I’d honestly have to say…. Sometimes, depending on the circumstance. So, I took the quiz that was in our bible study “Let It Go” Chapter 1.

 

In the quiz I tested out at 28, which scored me in the middle. It says “You vacillate between being agreeable and easygoing at ...

"Whoever can be trusted with little can be trusted with much!" Luke 16:10a

Are you faithful with the little? Do you really want the much?


I think we feel at times that the little is all we can handle, so we hold ourselves back from the “Greater” God has for us. As we ask ourselves this question, we might think, "What will the “much” require?" It can be scary to move into the unknown. What if God asks us to do someth...

Resolution or Transformation?

Posted by Tina kadolph on January 9, 2013 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

As we jump into 2013, are you going make resolutions or are you going to be transformed instead? Let me explain my thoughts. You see, resolutions are usually about us and what we want. They are usually self-centered and about what we can do in our own strength, with us putting our commitment and dependence in ourselves. But on the other hand, transformation is Christ-centered. It is about allowing Christ to do His work through us--His will, not ours. It’s not about us but about Him. Tra...

FOR THE GOOD

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Couldn’t wait to share the amazing “Greater” work God is doing!

 

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” ~ Romans 8:28 NIV

 

As I reflect on this verse, it is hard at times to think this way.


When we see the whole picture, we can look back and say "Wow, God worked this bad thing out fo...

Is This Thing On? Oh Yea!

Posted by Tina kadolph on December 9, 2012 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (3)

As I am reflecting on this study “Greater” it brings me back to the first time I felt God really speak into my life and turn my world upside down. Like Elisha, I was living my life in a regular routine. I was taking care of my kids, of course, and going to church when I wasn’t too tired to get out of bed, or allow some other activity to draw me away. Honestly, God and church hadn’t become a priority in my life.

Mediocrity or Something Greater?

Posted by Tina kadolph on December 1, 2012 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (9)

Thanksgiving was only a week ago. It is always such a wonderful time spent with family and friends. I look forward to that time. For me, it is usually just my kids and their husbands. If we hear of anyone who doesn’t have a place to go, we always invite them over. This year we had just one sweet young lady join us. It is a time we reflect on the things we are thankful for. I’m always thankful for time with my kids and my husband – it is always special. I don’t live clo...

Why We Care - And Why We Hope You Will To

Posted by Tina kadolph on November 17, 2012 at 12:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Human Trafficking is one of the world’s greatest evils. It is the second largest organized crime in the world, next only to drugs. If caught trafficking humans, the sentence is less than if you are caught trafficking drugs. But, human trafficking is more profitable to criminals than any other crime. A person or child can be used over and over again. There are more slaves today than at any other time in history! Shocking right? Most of us don’t know muc...
