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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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?

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 […]


Just days after Jesus’ crucifixion, resurrection and ascension to Heaven, a guy named Saul, who disliked Christ followers so much, sought and received a letter from the religious leaders to arrest and eventually kill any person that he found associated with “the way”. During his pursuit of potential victims, he is struck down by Jesus himself and […]

Inner Reason

If you’re asking why you are here on earth and your asking for selfish reasons, you will never be satisfied or at peace. You will get many answers to that question, but I believe there is more than one concrete reason. One of the reasons we are here is to be a blessing to others. Let us find inner […]

Guide Rails

On a recent stroll down the beach, I spotted a turtle nest quarantined off with yellow caution tape.  Upon closer inspection, I noticed that someone had meticulously crafted wooden ‘guide rails’ pressed into the sand creating a sort of turtle ramp leading to the sea. My first thought was:  Are you kidding me?  Baby turtles […]
