Some of you are here because I have personally invited you, others because you have randomly happened upon my blog.  Welcome to both!

This blog is my attempt at journaling my thoughts on being Christ-like--or as close as I can get to becoming Christ-like.  I am ever-growing and hungry for more and more of Him.
I am Born Again.  I am Spirit-filled.  And, yes, I do speak in tongues (gasp!).

Some of my thoughts are non-traditional, non-mainstream, non-religious Christianity.  Things the Holy Spirit has been teaching me that go against the flow or 'traditions of men'.

I believe in contextual study of the Word of God.  It's easy to pull a verse or two 'out of the hat' to fit whatever need is present in one's life or to get more money or service from a congregation (ouch!) but is that verse read in context?  {Here's a fun challenge.  The next time the minister gives the scripture reference for his/her sermon, quickly read above and below the said scripture.  Sometime you'll know right then if what is being delivered from the pulpit is in context with scripture.  If this can't be done quickly--for instance, the whole chapter or book in question should be read, then take it home and read it.  This may include looking up the Greek and/or Hebrew meanings of certain words.  (Some things may really surprise you!)  It is our responsibility to 'study to show ourselves approved'.  Plus you get the added benefit of growth through personal study.}

I chose my blog title 'Yet God Is!' because no matter what my thoughts are--whether filled with faith or I happen to be in a horribly-negative moment,  no matter what I am personally going through, I can rest assured that God is still the same, the Rock, steady and unchangeable.  No matter what I think, Yet God Is!

God bless,


  1. Hello, Brenda, and thanks for the invitation to this blog. God bless you in it and with it. Your advice about reading Scripture in context is so true. Much love and wishing you the best.

  2. Brenda, this is a beautiful! Beautiful in so many ways, but especially beautiful in transparency; your transparency before your family in Christ, and beautiful in transparency before your Maker. You're telling Him and us what He already knows. He who has begun a good work in you will be faithful to complete it in Christ Jesus our Lord. Love you so much.


Christ-like please :)
