In the Light

As a child, I was afraid of the dark. I always had to have the bathroom light on or a night light to feel safe and keep the “monsters” away. Now that I’m an adult, I still don’t like the dark; but I know now there are no monsters under my bed. In life, we […]

But How?

I really don’t know how the electric is delivered to my house or how the internet works or how this little hand-held device I have in my hand right now can do so many amazing things. Sometimes we don’t need to know or understand the inner workings of things; we just trust they will be there. This is […]

Be the Blessing

Have you ever taken one of those gift evaluations at your church? They are supposed to narrow down what your spiritual gifts are. I have taken them many times and have found that over the years your gifts change. That isn’t a bad thing, it just shows you are growing and God is using you […]

A Note from God to You

If God wrote you a letter today, what do you think He would say to you? Would He say, “My dear child, you are going to be fine; just hang in there a little longer”, or, “My beloved, please don’t grow weary and tired. I am with you always even when it doesn’t seem it. […]

Delays Are Not Denials

How do we feel when we are in a holding pattern of not getting where we need to be, or doing what we want to do? We get upset with God, wondering where He is or why He isn’t moving us along. God isn’t punishing us, he is refining us. We must look at things […]

Storms Don’t Last

James 5:13-17 It is so hard to understand why God allows suffering. In our scripture today, James gives us a little perspective. Now really think about this; why would God allow suffering? God, who in His infinite wisdom, allowed His own prophets to suffer in the hands of the sinful people whom they were ministering […]

Love the Unkind

Ugh! Unkind people. How do you tolerate unkindness? We see it every day. In grocery store lines, parking lots, highways and even in our own family members. I was taught to be kind and nice to everyone because we never know what others are going through or what has made them so angry, rude and darn […]

How Tough We Have It

This picture says it all. Sometimes we get caught up in our own lives and we forget what Jesus went through to save us from ourselves. Next time we find ourselves complaining how hard life is, lets us remember what He did for us. Look at this picture and really let it sink in. God […]

Maze

Have you ever gone through or participated in a corn maze? This time of year, there are several farms and pumpkin patches offering this activity that many enjoy. I myself prefer not to enter a maze on purpose. Sometimes, life can become a big maze. Every way you turn is a dead end; confusion and […]

Planning

James 4:13-17 “Always plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.”– Richard Cushing. According to today’s scripture, James tells us that we should not make any plans apart from God. We have absolutely no control over our lives or over the events that may happen; we should never boast about our short-range and long-range plans without […]
