Earthly Vessels

I’m sure I’m safe in saying, we are all a little embarrassed and ashamed of our past mistakes we have made. We can blame it on immaturity, lack of knowledge or wisdom or it happened before we knew Jesus Christ. Whatever the circumstances, we can all agree, they were life’s lessons and hopefully we have […]

How I use my hands

In my office, on the top of one of the bookcases, there is a wooden carving of two hands embracing each other.  In my recent musings, I have come to realize that there are many ways that two people can clasp their hands together and probably, more importantly, many more reasons why people join their […]


“Cover me up and use me for good” is a prayer I say a lot. Why? Because I know if I go out as myself uncovered by the spirit of God, I will fail. We all need to be covered by the grace and mercy of God. We are fallen people living in these ‘earth suits’ and without the blood […]

Reach Out

Our lesson at church this past Sunday was a great reminder that God uses everyone for His works here on Earth. We talked about the disciples that followed Jesus. They were just regular people like you and me. They weren’t rich, didn’t wear fancy garments or receive high honors in education. God uses us for […]

Box, Path, Circus

I have struggles. You have struggles. Somewhere along the way, many of us began believing that our struggles affect God’s love for us. We mistakenly think that when I am good, God loves me; when I make a mistake, God’s love for me is somehow less or maybe not at all. We are basically making […]

Gods Wages

“We will serve God until the devil offers us better wages.” (English proverb) I don’t know about you, but I have fallen into this trap many times through my life. I had good intentions to serve others through either mission trips, serving on Sunday morning or just helping a friend in need. Something I thought would benefit me more always took precedence […]

Power of Prayer

We have all heard, “If you are out of hope and in despair, just pray”. The word “just” is disturbing to me, why? It’s not JUST praying, like it’s the least we could do. Praying to God is the highest of honors; it’s our direct link to Him and we should above all things, praise […]

Tourist or Follower

The Apostle Paul explains to a young follower of Jesus named Timothy, “the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others”. 2 Timothy 2:2 In other words, what we believe about Jesus MUST be shared with others.  True followers […]

A Prayer for Veterans

Dear Lord, Today we honor our veterans, worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect their country. We pray that you will bless them for their unselfish service in the continual struggle to preserve our freedoms, our safety, and our country’s heritage, for all of us. […]

Plow Through

I recently heard the song “If You’re Going Through Hell” by Rodney Atkins and like I always say, there is a devotion in everything; this song is no exception. We all have times where we feel like we are going through hell in one shape or form. Things just keep happening to us, one after […]
