Help

I look up to the mountains — does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord , who made heaven and earth! (Psalms 121 :1‭-‬2) If you read that right, David is asking where does my help come from?   Many years ago, alters were placed on mountains as signs to heaven, a […]

Count your Blessings

Sometimes we need to be reminded to count our blessings – even if the reminder is just a little off. I woke up in one of those moods. And I know I should be much more grateful for this day. (It is NOT raining!!) I should be much more thankful for every good thing I […]

Never Underestimate

While standing in a checkout line recently, I was hearing some very negative comments and chatter about the new manager at this particular store. Some of the comments consisted of, “she’s so young what does she know about managing anything, she won’t last long, she won’t be able to handle the pressure”, and so on. […]

Statement of Faith

Matthew 9:23 True faith doesn’t have to see the miracle but just knows it will happen. Did you catch what the woman thought in today’s scripture?? “I will be healed”. That is a powerful statement of faith. Her thought pattern wasn’t one of “I might be healed, or perhaps I will be healed”. No It was a statement […]

Who Are We To Judge?

John 7:24 This past weekend, my daughter, her girls and I had the chance to hang out and do some thrift store shopping and of course we had to fit in lunch before we headed home. We both wanted to go someplace different that we had not gone to before. We found a cute pizza […]

God’s Work

Colossians 3:23-24 As a social worker, my job can be stressful to say the least. There are deadlines, paperwork, large numbers of people to serve, etc. Processes and regulations are always changing adding another layer of frustration and headaches. And just when it feels as though you are catching up, another referral comes in or […]

Despised

I might despise where I live or lived, but I still had a place to live. I might despise the cars I have or had, but I still have a car. I might despise the food I had or must eat, but I still had food. I’m sure Isaac despised when he had to take his […]

Turn Cheek

God says, “Love each other as I have loved you”. Easy? No! We all have different ideas, opinions and up-bringing; do we really have to “love” everyone? If we are truly God’s children, yes! His love is unconditional, forgiving and pure. This means we turn the other cheek if someone hurts our feelings, says something […]

Value

“I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.” – Hermann Hesse. God will ALWAYS take something and make it into something beautiful. The way we give bad or good fortune a value is trust […]

Treasure’s

Where do you keep your treasures? While having a conversation recently with my 12 yr. old twin granddaughters, we were discussing where they keep their most precious and meaningful keepsakes. One keeps her’s in a decorative box she stores under her bed, while the other one has a special drawer for all her memorabilia. They […]
