Seasons

As summer is now over, my hanging plants and flowers are starting to wither away. They flourished for months, giving me much pleasure with their floral colors and scents; but now it’s time to renew my pots and refresh them with new late summer foliage. In our lives, it’s good to do this every now […]

Take Time

Mowing the lawn, putting on make-up, cleaning the house, dying your hair…all because why? We put so much time into the appearance of things or ourselves to look good that we take time out of our day to make it happen. What if we took the same amount of time into learning, sharing and obeying God’s word? How about […]

Thinking & Behaving

“So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.” (Galatians 5:1) This verse reminds me of when prisoners get set free from prison way before they their allotted time. I am sure some of the last words they hear as they are […]

Weather Resistant

Anyone remember the old commercials for “Bondo”? It was a super duper, pasty like, forever lasting glue. They demonstrated it with putting a small amount on a construction workers hard hat and then dangling him from a steel beam. It worked on the commercial, but how many of us would have trusted that whole scenario? […]

Turn to God

Isaiah 53 “We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way.” (Isaiah 53:6). Sheep are a prey species and often resort to fleeing for their own protection. How many of us do the same? When the enemy (Satan) attacks, do we always turn to God and have faith […]

WANTED

I remember as a kid either in gym class or with the neighborhood kids getting ready to play a game of either football, kickball or baseball, and lining up to have two captains choose who they want on their team. What a horrible feeling to be picked last. What a great feeling to know on God’s […]

Road Less Traveled

Ugh! Road construction! Seems like every street I turn on in my town has construction signs posted. Roads closed. Please detour. Very frustrating for travelers; but in the end, they will be beautiful and newly paved. Recently, I had gotten a ride to the store and my friend went up one of the roughest and torn […]

Let Them Talk!

Jesus told them, “Go back to John and tell him what you have heard and seen— the blind see, the lame walk, those with leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the Good News is being preached to the poor.”  And he added, “God blesses those who do not […]

Be Real

I believe we must make something undeniably clear, in scripture, Jesus commanded all his followers, not just those in full-time ministry, to share the good news with everyone around them. “Jesus said to his followers, ‘Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone’” (Mark 16:15). You don’t have to be well spoken or […]

Stay Focused

“Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24) This verse teaches us to increase our faith by changing our focus; the key is believing before we see. If we don’t see it in our minds eye, we will never see it come to fruition. […]
