This was originally published on my website: melodyharstine.com on July 5, 2012 I had a core meltdown today. A call-your-mama-and-cry kind of meltdown. Why? Two things triggered the onset of emotion, but the real reason is far deeper, and I'll get to that. I'm a freelance writer. I love what I do. I work from home, make my own hours, and get to have the flexibility to do most things I want when I want. The setback to my job? There is a real ebb and flow to the business. Sometimes I'm crazy busy. Other times I'm not. Over the three years I've been in t ...

After Jesus's birth, King Herod became disturbed when a group of astrologers or "œwise men" from the east (thought to be Persia or Babylon) called the Magi arrived in Jerusalem. The Magi had been following a star belonging to the newly born "œKing of the Jews". Herod derived the time from which Jesus had been born from the Magi accounts of when the star had first appeared. King Herod then tricked the Magi by asking them to find the child so that he would worship him. In reality, King Herod, who was renowned for his paranoia, didn"™t want any challenge to his rule, t ...

I was teaching a class of high-octane Christian women leaders on how to work with men in ministry. When the topic of appropriate attire surfaced, I could hardly keep from breaking out in laughter at the irony. Before me were women bemoaning the provocative way women dress these days, but four, yes, four, of them were showing enough cleavage to distract any man in our midst. I don't get the disconnect, the gap. Please know that I love these women dearly, and my intent is not to cause any sister to slink away in shame, but I love our brothers too. I know good men are ...

In the last days there will be a battle for the truth about Jesus and who He claims to be. The Holy Spirit was sent to point us to and exalt Jesus by leading us into all truth about Him. If we want to have a current word for the world, let us be seized by the current that runs deep in the River of Life! As the world is awash in decay and the nations swept away in the darkness, we must be able to clearly and boldly declare the truth about Jesus. At times this can be as simple as speaking His name unashamedly and with purpose into a situation. A most successful lie of S ...

"In those days the church was not merely a thermometer that recorded ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was the thermostat that transformed the mores of society" This statement has really had an impact on me lately. It's not a new quote, it was actually written by Martin Luther King Jr. when he was in the Birmingham Prison. He was addressing the issue of the church becoming complacent with the racism and other issues occurring at the time. Today our culture's issues may not necessarily deal with racism, but there are many other issues that the church has ...

i wanted to start this blog to show the journey I went through to becoming a believer... so I guess a good way to start this is to tell about my family back when I was a little girl. Back then my mom was on drugs. And my dad was a very angry person. He raped my mom and beat her pulling guns on her and other things. He was very deceitful and cruel and still is today. the day they got married my dad looked at my mom and said I own you. (WHICH IS WHY I HAVE TO YET MARRY MY FIANCEE OF 3 YEARS IM SO SCARED TO GIVE MYSELF TO BE OWNED BY SOMEONE ELSE WHICH I NEED GOD HE ...

Evil; hate and intolerance, is real and ugly and toxic in this world. We must overcome it. It is, unfortunately, all too common among men of and from all ages. We have witnessed this evil at home and in years past as terrorist have devastated our country. Recently, in the attacks on our embassies and countrymen abroad we continue to witness this truth, as we have in murderous attacks and violent aggression throughout the Middle East by men ranging from very young to their fathers and grandfathers, as have their ancestors before them. This ongoing conflict is oft ...

  Sometimes, it just isn’t there anymore. Sometimes you wake up in the morning, walk outside, shake the Creativity Tree, and there isn’t a fruit that falls. It seems like somewhere along the way, creativity died.   So, you stand there at it’s imagined headstone giving a melodramatic eulogy about the pain that comes from losing such a dear friend. You weep, wail, and moan at your need for its presence. You walk around in a funk wondering h»
