Encounter

At some point, we all encounter Jesus. Some may say, “Oh not me, I have never felt the presence of God in my life”. Well friends, let me refresh your clouded memories if I may. God is always around and clears our paths from evil, devastation and chaos; we just must be seeking, watching and […]

Issues?

Hebrews 4:16 tells us, “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need”. Friends, what do we do with our issues? Where do we take our issues? To whom do we take our issues? In Mark 5, there […]

Don’t Give Up!

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. ” (Hebrews 12:1 NLT) We might […]

God Heals

While sitting outside enjoying my first sips of coffee this morning, I noticed the bare spot in my yard where a tree once was is almost completely covered over. Soon you won’t even know there was a tree there. It made me think of the scars we carry. We’ve all been wounded at one point during […]

DIY

In Mark 10:17, a man approaches Jesus and bows before him asking one question, “What must I DO to inherit eternal life?” DIY!  Do It Yourself is often the cheaper, quicker and more practical way of doing many things in our lives: changing our oil in the car, dying our hair a preferred color, remodeling […]

Clouds

Have you ever felt like you were walking around in a cloud?  Every way you turn is foggy, misty, unclear, and shrouded, and you feel frustrated that you can’t break free.  You reach out, and you can’t find God anywhere.  Maybe, just maybe, the clouds are a sign that the Lord IS with you.  Exodus […]

God is in Control

Sadly, as of late, our small town has been riddled with senseless crime sprees including armed robberies, shootings, etc. 3 innocent people have lost their lives. We ask ourselves, when will it stop? How many lives must be taken before there is an arrest and justice is served? Unfortunately, all over the globe we see […]

Caught

They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of …” Honestly, does it really matter what she was caught doing? She was caught, without need of greater evidence or further debate. Have you ever been caught? Exposed without any room to explain or reason […]

Insignificant

Psalm 8:3-5 says, “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that your care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him […]

Don’t Cry

God teaches us lessons every day, all day. They aren’t always what we want to learn and at the time, it may feel like God is punishing us rather than making it bigger and better for us. It is devastating when God closes a door, especially when we have tried so desperately to keep it […]
