Have It Your Way!

Don’t we all just want to control every aspect of our lives? I know I do. It’s not easy giving up control and letting someone else take over even if we are so worn down and simply exhausted mentally, spiritually and physically. We still try to do It all with the mindset that no one […]

“Then”

Joshua 1:10 The word “then” is very interesting when it comes to Bible usage. “Then” means ‘after that; next; afterward’. In today’s scripture, we are looking at the “then” in Joshua. “Then” is an action word. It is followed by doing something. When we are saved by the blood of Christ we aren’t done. It is […]

No Waste

James 4:3 When you study even a little of Native American Indian history and traditions, you learn one common theme; they never wasted anything. For instance, when they took a buffalo down, every part of that animal was used for something and nothing went to waste. In today’s scripture, after Jesus fed the 5000, he […]

Front Porch

Since I was little, I always loved sitting on the front porch. Thankfully, most houses I’ve lived in had a front porch. Good conversations, building relationships, laughing, crying, reminiscing and even an occasional good night kiss happens on the front porch. As a church, we should be welcoming all to our “front porch”. Come as […]

Letter to God

What would your letter to God say?  Giving this, some thought myself, I would first say thank you and praise Him for seeing me through my darkest days. I would thank Him for my kids, my family and everyone He has put in my life path no matter if they taught me lessons or became […]

Simple Smile

Working a stand at our county fair this week has really been an eye opener for me concerning people and just humanity in general. So many different shapes, sizes, races and personalities; it is a wonderful blessing from God. My first thought was Thank God we aren’t all the same! How boring would that be? My second thought was […]

Past Powers

We all struggle with personal issues that we keep to ourselves. We figure if we say them out loud or share with others, they may feel differently about us. Knowing God sees, hears and knows all is a bit of a comfort because He still loves us in the midst of our messed-up thoughts and […]

Discipline

“No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward, there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.” (Hebrews 12:11) Discipline has always been a hard pill to swallow for me. That is obvious with all the trouble I have gotten into in the past. […]

Mirror, Mirror

Look in the mirror and what do you see? I lecture my grand-kids a lot on loving themselves no matter what slight imperfections they may see. I remind them that God made them perfect in His eyes and that’s all that matters. I guess I should listen to my own advice because lately, I’m feeling […]

Come Back

“I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry…he set my feet on a rock…he put a new song in my mouth.” (Psalm 40) The question we have all wondered at least once is, “How am I ever going to get out of this dry season in my life?” David […]
