The Pumpkin

Being a Christian is a lot like being a pumpkin. First, God picks you from the pumpkin patch and brings you in from the field. The Bible says He selects us out of the world. We are in the world, but no longer of the world. He then washes all the “dirt” off the outside that […]

Ultimate Comforter

Genesis 37:34-35 Have you gone through something recently that has caused you to refuse comfort? Maybe losing a loved one where you are so overcome with grief that you let it consume you? In today’s scripture, Jacob experiences these same feelings upon hearing of Joseph’s death. Refusing comfort did not change his situation, it only […]

Holidays Coming 

Galatians 5:14 With the holidays soon approaching, some of you may already be stressing and dreading the thoughts of, “The Family gatherings”. Oh, your family might not be as crazy as the Griswold’s but, it’s fair to say, the holiday season can bring out the worst in some individuals  As Christian we are taught to […]

Don’t be Proud

James 1:18 “Every good and perfect gift comes down from above, from the Father” (Jas.1:18). May we never forget this. We have nothing good in us that we did not receive from God. Every “good and perfect” thing that we have was freely given to us by God. We may accomplish many things in our […]

My Shield

Psalm 18:2-3 Today, many people look to something tangible and earthly to save them from the struggles and hurts that they are going through. Some may look for this in another individual, thinking that the person can save them and will be their rock through the storm. Others may look for things such as alcohol, […]

Use your Heart

Use your Heart

James 3:16 I can remember many years ago when I was in a bad relationship I thought it was all the other person; but I came to realize that not all the blame goes to her. There was a lot of jealousy and selfish ambition on both sides and it lead to nothing but bad […]

Look Deeper

Proverbs 11:27 “Anyone can find the dirt in someone, be the one that finds the gold.” I have never been one that looks down on others but there have been times when I felt like, “oh boy that guy is weird” or “I know he is different now but I remember when he did this […]
