What are you Afraid Of?

“I praise God for what He has promised. I trust in God so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?” (Psalm 56:4 NLT) Maybe bills, health or even death scare you. There are many things to be afraid of but should we be? I have searched through the gospels and found […]

Happy Memorial Day!

As we remember our brave heroes that have died giving their lives for us to be free, let us remember another that did the same. He didn’t do it for His country that He loved, He did it for all the people He loves. Jesus sacrificed it all so we can be free from sin; […]

Angry at God

Have you ever been so angry at God you didn’t know how you would  ever get over it? Anger is a very human emotion. We can read all through Psalms how David felt abandoned by God in his days of struggle, waiting for what seemed like eternity for answered prayers. We’ve all been there. How […]

Amazing Faith

Psalm 33:4-6 My wife is an example of steadfast belief and trust in God. She was recently diagnosed with a lesion in her brain that is not life threatening (for now), but is indeed a danger to her well being. I know if I would have been told over the phone, “hey your results are […]

Straight and Narrow

Jeremiah 24:7 As much as I hate to admit this, there are times while I’m driving I reach down to adjust the radio or glance at my directions if I’m traveling on unfamiliar roads. There has been a time or two I have veered off the roadway and ever so slightly, have crossed over into […]

Please the Lord

“The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.”  (Proverbs 21:3) Would I love a brand new car or a vacation to the Caribbean as gift from my children; you bet. But, if I had to decide between those gifts or my children doing the […]

Before it is too Late

Mark 16:15 When someone passes away, it is devastating. But, perhaps what is more upsetting is not knowing if they excepted Christ before they died. Recently a woman came  in to the store I work at (a Christian book and gift store) and was searching for something religious to put on her husband at the […]

Yes I am Adopted

Ephesians 1 Growing up with two older brothers was not as fun as one would think. Oh they protected me, but they also tortured me in various ways. One was being told I was adopted continually. As the youngest, of course I believed everything they told me. I would go running to my mom crying […]

Hearts Desire

Zephaniah 3:17 How many of you struggle with rejection? Feeling insignificant or not good enough? Feeling unloved? These feelings can be difficult to overcome; especially when the enemy feeds you lies that support these toxic thoughts. Perhaps through earthly relationships, you were told or led to believe that you are unworthy or not important. But […]

Abba the Father

Romans 8:15 Your worth isn’t based on other people’s thoughts or feelings; it is based on what your father, Abba, thinks of you. I was raised by an abusive, alcoholic father that always made me feel worthless. It wasn’t until I got a lot older that I realized my worth isn’t and wasn’t based on […]
