Stripped

Stripped

When I was a little girl attending Sunday school, my mom’s biggest concern was what I wore. I had to dress to the utmost best for church. I didn’t realize at the time that’s how she was raised and that’s just how it was. You go to church in your “Sunday best”. We can take […]

Coverage

Coverage

I live in Pennsylvania and usually we have four seasons. The season I want to talk about today is the season of fall going into winter when the leaves have come off the trees. It is amazing how much you can see when all the coverage is gone; when you have a much clearer view […]

Ask God What He Thinks

Ask God What He Thinks

1 Thessalonians 5:15-22  I can’t remember where I heard this quote before but I think it is a sentence in a country song. It goes something like, “don’t let your mind out think your common sense”. These days, we are told so often we must have open minds and be tolerant of everybody and everything no […]

Just Do It

Just Do It

James 2:14-17  “What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical […]

He Will Handle It

He Will Handle It

Psalm 37This Psalm of David has helped me many times during strife in my life. This psalm reminds us not to worry, be envious or angry because of something that someone else did or said about us. We have to trust in Him and His justice will prevail – always. Getting upset about others actions only hurt […]

Give me Patience Lord

Give me Patience Lord

1 Thessalonians 5:14 Most of us are impatient for God to grant us the desires of our hearts. Usually, we know what we want and we want it now; right now if not sooner. But God may have other plans. When God’s plan differs from ours, we must trust in His infinite wisdom and love. […]

Casting crowns

Casting crowns

Revelation 4:1-11 Some of us will receive a crown for what we did on earth when we go home with God. So picture this; You had a bad car wreck. The car burst into flames while you are stuck in the car because your seat belt wont unbuckle. You see your life flashing before your […]

Restore

Restore

Titus 3:4-7 I have a friend who usually has one or more projects he works on just to keep busy. His latest project was restoring an old piece of furniture that someone was actually going to throw into a trash pile. I suppose they just thought it would take too much time and effort in […]

Are You Joyful?

Are You Joyful?

Philippians 4 For Paul, joy is a defining attribute of the church.  Does “joy” characterize the church today?  If you knocked on the door of one of your non-Christian neighbors and asked them how they would describe Christians, would they say that Christians are people marked by a deep, consistent sense of joy?  Would people […]
