Greener

Philippians 4:11,12 I have recently returned to my “home” church after venturing out and seeing if I may be happier or more content at a different church. I was gone for a year and a half from my home church mainly due to the feeling of being unfed. I had become dull and my pastor […]

Heart Connected to God

Romans 8:26-28 “The Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us […]

Material Things will Fade

Matthew 6:19-21 While watching our 15 month old son interact with other children, a strange thing came to my mind. Observing him take another child’s toy and hearing the other child cry out reminded me of what Jesus taught us and how He wants us to respond. We are not supposed to get angry or […]

Sifting for the Good Stuff

As most of us do after the start of a new year, I have joined the bandwagon of eating healthier, taking care of myself better and blah, blah, blah. In all honesty, I have been feeling better since I’ve been driving right by the bakery in place of flying in their parking lot on 2 […]

Save Souls

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19) Is your church more worried about adding to the number of members or reaching the lost? Unfortunately, many times it is “how many new people were here this week?” and […]

Clean and New

Isaiah 1:18, 2 Corinthians 5:17 While driving home from work today, the song “Clean” by Natalie Grant came on the radio. I had heard this song before but had never really tuned into what the lyrics were saying. Today they were crystal clear and pierced my heart. “There’s nothing too dirty. That you can’t make worthy. You […]

Always Right

“If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise.” (Proverbs 15:31) Wow! This is a hard lesson for me. I have always been the type of person that if you criticize me for any reason, then you are against me. When in reality, people that love and care about me will […]

Wake and Give Thanks

I don’t know about you, but every day when I wake up it is usually a struggle to have God be the first thing on my mind. It is amazing how quickly we can make ourselves, our schedules, or our to-do lists first in our thoughts and priorities. How often do we think of ourselves first […]

Hearts Full of Love

Yes, I still have my Christmas tree up! My grandchildren came to visit this past weekend and they flipped when they saw my Christmas tree still up and lit. I just replied to them that I’m not ready to take it down. It’s calming, it’s festive and I am still enjoying the spirit of the […]

Struggles Will Pass

Living in Pennsylvania, we all know what the winters are like here. Lately, with the record breaking cold snap we just had, it was pretty unbearable to say the least. Just another season in Pa! But when you are actually in the cold, it feels like you will never feel the warmth of the sun […]
