Memory Lane

Jeremiah 29:11 When’s the last time you took a trip down memory lane? I had the opportunity recently to do just that. I went back to my family roots where my Dad grew up and where I spent most of my weekends as a kid. Oh, the memories of my childhood flooded my mind! From […]

Happy Place

Matthew 14:23 Where’s your happy place? My happy place has been the same forever. Quiet, peaceful and surrounded by nature. Today, I’m on my porch listening to the birds, wildlife and an occasional car going by. This is where I find my peace. Where I can regroup, collect my thoughts and spend time with God. So […]

Not Done Yet

I used to despise seasons in my life because usually a seasonal change in my life didn’t start out pretty. Depression, anxiety, unbelief, non-trusting of God, plus many more feelings and emotions would take control of my life. It would take some time, and I must say wasted time, to get a grip and realize […]

With Confidence

Hebrews 4:14-16 Sometimes I think it is hard for is to fathom that Jesus could really understand us and what we are going through. We put Jesus on a pedestal and think, “I am too bad for him to understand. I have messed up too much and my sin is too great.” We walk around […]

Now What

All throughout life, we all will witness the feeling of, “the rug being pulled out from underneath us”. The sudden yank of a loss, a split-second life change that leaves us confused, shocked and questioning where to turn next. I recently was involved in a car accident that has left me with a shoulder injury […]

Graduation Day!

One of my beautiful granddaughters recently graduated high school. Oh, how proud we all are of her and the accomplishments she has already conquered. Watching her walk down the aisle to receive her diploma made me think of how God must feel when we complete a mission, conquer a difficult challenge or reach a personal […]

Bread Alone

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every that comes from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4) In this scripture, God is reminding us that we need more than the basic necessities of food and water to survive. We also need the word of God to nourish our spiritual life. Sometimes we get so […]

No Matter What

“But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!” (Isaiah 54:17) In other words, we don’t have to worry about what others say about […]

Soak It In

So as their first order of business upon returning, Jesus greeted them with clear instructions: “Come . . . rest a while.”  It wasn’t a request. It wasn’t a friendly suggestion. It was Jesus’ command. Here’s what you’re going to do, guys. They’d been through a lot. And much more remained to be done. But […]

Roadblocks

Matthew 17:20 If our faith can move mountains, than what often stands in our way?? Our own doubt is what can create obstacles in our lives. I have experienced this personally in certain situations. When I have taken my eyes and focus off of God and begin to question my faith in Him and what He […]
