Leave it All Behind

Leave it All Behind

Matthew 11:28 While leaving for a family vacation, I asked my husband to put my bags up front next to me. He asked, “How many bags do you need?” After all, I had bags filled with: work related items, books, electronic devices, a purse and a cooler of food and water. I didn’t want to let any of […]

Waiting

Waiting

Galatians 6:7-10 I’m sure we have all said or heard, “Wow that was perfect timing.” I have found myself saying this often lately, with the last time being last week. I had a lunch date with a friend at a restaurant I had only been in once before. I was running late and I couldn’t […]

Get Equipped

Get Equipped

Ephesians 6:10-18 When your opposition starts fighting your efforts, it’s best to be familiar with what tactics they might use. In our scripture today, Paul gives us an over view of this. We cannot know and defeat the strategies of the devil, in light of the Gospel, if we do not study God’s strategies for […]

Stronger Than You Know

Stronger Than You Know

Recently, the stress in my life has seemed to be never ending. You know the saying, “When it rains, it pours”? It felt as though the stressors were “pouring” into my life and I was beginning to drown. While driving one day, I thought, “What am I going to do? I can’t take this anymore.” […]

Optimism

Optimism

John 14:27 Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a theologian, martyr, spiritual writer and pastor, once said, “The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself […]

Spread the Joy

Spread the Joy

John 15:1-17 In today scripture Jesus says, “I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” (John 15:11) Jesus defines joy in Jesus terms instead of  human terms. Jesus talks about a joy that is based not on circumstance but on relationship.  This is a joy that defines our reality rather than our reality […]

He Walks With Me

He Walks With Me

Isaiah 43:1 Often I find myself asking a family member or a friend, “Who wants to go for a walk?” While walking side by side, we begin talking…Our time together is one on one. We are able to engage in personal conversations and enjoy each other’s company. We talk about our day, vent out our frustrations, […]

Laugh It Up

Laugh It Up

Genesis 21:6 (NIV) Do you know someone that has a laugh that is contagious? I love that! There is a lot of research out there that states that laughter is healthy for you in many ways. It relieves stress, increases blood flow, affects immune response, lowers blood sugar level and aids in relaxation, sleep and […]

The One and Only

The One and Only

Genesis 32:24-31 At the heart of each counterfeit god that we have talked about these last few weeks is that they are all on a throne of lies – nothing real, and nothing true. It is impossible to understand our hearts and our culture if we do not discern and name the counterfeit gods that […]

Don’t Assume

Don’t Assume

Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) Being so busy lately with work, caring for my aging mom, and life in general – the daily household chores such as, dishes in the sink, dirty floors and laundry didn’t get much attention over the weekend. My granddaughter came out for an overnight stay and in the morning as we were leaving to […]
