Count it all JOY

Does it ever feel like things are not going the way you think they should? I mean, you are trying to do everything right and be a person of integrity, but it seems the Godless people are flourishing? Yea, I had a few minutes pity party for myself today. It only took a minute for […]

Ultimate Makeover

The question we all ask ourselves, huh. Who am I? For many, the answer to this question changes depending on the season.  Sadly too many base the answer on emotions, experiences, or what others have said about us; as if someones opinions define us. Times and seasons change. Society is a fickle people. With the […]

Secure in Father’s House

I do not live in Mayberry or Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, but I still like my neighborhood. I have only lived here for a short while, but I have gotten to know some of the neighbors and people and businesses close by.  As an extrovert I tend to say hello, good morning, or good evening to […]

You Can Because I Am

Her life didn’t turn out the way she planned. Everything was a struggle, from childhood to adult, it was a constant struggle; as if she was under a curse. All her life all she ever wanted was to be loved. As a child she would envy other children who had parents who loved them. She […]

Come Home

    I can’t think of a worse place to be than in a backslidden state; to know Jesus and then try to hide from Him. It is folly to think we, His children, could hide from Him. He promised He would never leave us. Seriously, it is impossible to not be in His sight. […]

Fear is a Poor Bedfellow

Fear will kill dreams, destroy relationships, paralyze, cause illness, put you in the poor house,  bring depression and even cause physical death. Fear is hellish! Fear comes from Satan. Throughout your life he planted those little seeds of death. He manipulated people to hurt, offend, or misunderstand you. He magnified every failure. He whispers accusations […]

Your Will or His Will

God came down to us as a man, tempted in every way we are tempted, experienced every emotion we experience, and yet He was without sin. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to restore us back to Him. Jesus, fully man, fully God; Emmanuel, God with us. Think about that. Let that sink in, please. […]
