Hi, my name is Molly and thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Tea & Testimony is a Christian writing ministry with the purpose to declare the good news of Jesus and inspire others to seek intimacy with God through His written Word.
Here you’ll find spiritual wisdom and encouragement for your journey of faith.
What shall we do in the meantime, while we wait in the painful place where comfort and peace feel so far away from our present situation? How can we make the jump from pain to joy? The answer is, we must wait well.
As with everything worldly, there’s a fine line between what we are free to do and what is helpful.
It’s only when you start aligning your desires with His eternal ones, that you can truly be free to pursue your passions.
When I notice something that bothers me in Church, or with other believers, it’s good to ask a question first: Is this a salvation issue or is it just a preference issue? Christians are commanded not to judge others, but in a sense we do need to be able to judge for ourselves the non-negotiable… Continue Reading →
One of the best things a Christian can do is take in the solid teaching of local church leaders and compare it to the Bible. Armed with this information and the guidance of the Holy Spirit through prayer, we can make the best judgement for ourselves whether what we are hearing matches up with what God has said.
fear and intimidation are natural to anything we try for the first time, because of our imperfect nature. That doesn’t make what you’re doing any less worthy. The enemy would love to derail any spiritual progress you make in the name of Jesus, especially if it means that your progress might have a hand in the progress of others.
I might be doing all the right things: going to church, serving, reading the Bible, etc. But I am not benefitting as I should if I am not resting in that joy of the Lord.
This year (of all years) I made a New Year’s Resolution to become more knowledgeable about the world by following the news more. As you can probably guess, it’s been a heavy and unpleasant task, one which seems to get worse by the minute. Between the fear of the future and deep sorrow over tragedies… Continue Reading →
Vote this November with a heart surrendered to Christ, and not man.
You don’t have to go on feeling isolated and exhausted. By caring for yourself, connecting with your coworkers, and focusing on doing the best you can at your job, you will find joy and a peace that only integrity can bring.
For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 The thing about working for large public corporations is that unless you are… Continue Reading →
Covid-19 revealed a God-given purpose in my day job that I never saw before.
It feels counter intuitive to our flesh that leaning into God could possibly resolve our inner turmoil. The wisdom of the unbelieving world might call that “sticking your head in the sand” or “being in denial”. But I found from experience that getting out of my own head truly was the antidote to this inner turmoil.
I’m just trying to live every day like Jesus and I fail a lot. To show that in my writing was always my intent from the beginning 8 years ago, but I’ve strayed from that and gotten into my head about it. As a result, I think my writing has become sterile and lacking joy. I really want to change this.
Even with a heavenly calling on me, I can get caught up in sin in spite of myself. The line gets blurred constantly. Things like gossiping, grumbling against management decisions, or even participating in less-than-godly conversations just to fit in can knock me off course at work. So how do we maintain our purpose and razor sharp focus while the ruler of the world works to render us inefficient?
