Planning

James 4:13-17 “Always plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.”– Richard Cushing. According to today’s scripture, James tells us that we should not make any plans apart from God. We have absolutely no control over our lives or over the events that may happen; we should never boast about our short-range and long-range plans without […]

Time change

With the falling leaves, crispness of the autumn breeze and winter not far behind, comes the dreaded time change. It is getting darker earlier is not my favorite part of the season for sure, but, as with anything else, it is temporary. When we look at life this way, we will always have periods of […]

Think About It

He allowed people to put a crown of thorns on His head, mock Him, strike Him, strip Him and make Him carry His own cross to Golgotha where they nailed Him to that cross; all of this plus much more pain and He hardly said any words. Some of the words He did say that should stick out the most are, “Father forgive them for they do […]

God’s Gifts

What gifts do you have? Some have the gift of gabbing, others can sing or maybe they can craft or custom build things. Maybe you feel like you have no talents or special gifts to offer but I’m here to tell you, we all do. God has given us all special talents unique to our […]

Jesus Jacket

With the change of season here in Pennsylvania, I thought as I was slipping on my coat, “why do I do that?” Well I do that because I don’t want to be cold, to protect myself from the weather and to be comfortable. Why do we walk out into this world that is full of evil and danger that surrounds us without putting on […]

Plant It

What negative thoughts are dominating your minds? You’re not good enough, no one loves you, I’m not pretty enough, I’m not skinny enough, I don’t fit in, etc. When we don’t have God’s promises embedded in our hearts and minds, that leaves room for the enemy to sneak in and takeover. I know I have to personally listen […]

Careful

A few months back, I was praying for some time off work. Just a little break is all I was asking for. Then low and behold, I was involved in a car accident and have been unable to work since May. Ugh! When people say be careful what you pray for, I am a great […]

Our King 

If you are a Christian and have been saved by Jesus’ blood that was shed on the cross, is that where everything stops? Is being saved enough or do we need a lord, a king to follow? I fear this is the mind set of many brothers and sisters. Christ didn’t die so we can just […]

Past Junk

Later, when Jesus was alone with the twelve disciples and with the others who were gathered around, they asked him what the parables meant. He replied, “You are permitted to understand the secret of the Kingdom of God. But I use parables for everything I say to outsiders, so that the Scriptures might be fulfilled: […]

Lay Your Burdens Down

We all have bad days, am I right? It may start out as a beautiful morning, birds singing, kids are getting along while getting ready for school, everything is moving smooth as silk, then “bam!” Car starts spitting because you are on “E” because you forgot to get gas the night before. Your son forgot […]
