Past Powers

We all struggle with personal issues that we keep to ourselves. We figure if we say them out loud or share with others, they may feel differently about us. Knowing God sees, hears and knows all is a bit of a comfort because He still loves us in the midst of our messed-up thoughts and […]

Discipline

“No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward, there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.” (Hebrews 12:11) Discipline has always been a hard pill to swallow for me. That is obvious with all the trouble I have gotten into in the past. […]

Mirror, Mirror

Look in the mirror and what do you see? I lecture my grand-kids a lot on loving themselves no matter what slight imperfections they may see. I remind them that God made them perfect in His eyes and that’s all that matters. I guess I should listen to my own advice because lately, I’m feeling […]

Come Back

“I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry…he set my feet on a rock…he put a new song in my mouth.” (Psalm 40) The question we have all wondered at least once is, “How am I ever going to get out of this dry season in my life?” David […]

Celebrate

Celebrate always no matter what. Just like sins, God doesn’t rank which sin is worse; they are all equal in His eyes. Blessings should not be ranked by us. Every blessing is a blessing; no matter how big or small. If God blesses you with a smile from a person, you’re not really fond of, that’s […]

“Unexpected Challenges”

Recently, I have been faced with an unexpected challenge of helping my son take care of his one year old. Relationship circumstances led my son and grandson to move back home with me. So, all of a sudden, I’m getting up at 4 am to fix a bottle, changing diapers and fighting a very strong-willed […]

Fulfilled Promises

In 1 Kings 18, the prophet Elijah tells his servant to go look out into the Mediterranean Sea, because after a three and a half year drought, Elijah has just heard the sound of heavy rain.  In obedience, the servant goes and returns with a report of what he saw.  NOTHING!  Friends, what do we […]

Move On

The past is the past; you can either run from it or learn from it! I chose to learn from it and move on. I have made many mistakes in my life and some I have repeated, but I do not choose to run from it or wallow in self-pity over how stupid I am. I […]

Luck vs. God’s Favor

I’ve been in this debate before. People saying, “Good luck” at your new job or “Good luck with your surgery”. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. Nothing is a coincidence; for instance, being at the right place at the right time scenarios. On more than one occasion, I have had this happen. […]

Choose One

1 Kings 18:21 says: “Elijah went before the people and said. ‘How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God follow him.’”  Friends, although no one today worships the pagan god Baal, if we are honest, we all have interests, passions, and preoccupations that […]
