Last week I was waylaid by a gall bladder attack which ate up about 5 days of my life. The important thing is not that this event occurred but rather Continue reading
Sometimes we just need a simple reminder of the power of faith. Hebrews 11 sums it up for us. Take a few minutes to read verses 1-32; we’ll look specifically at verses 33-34 so get your highlighter ready for these powerhouse words!
It is by FAITH:
Kingdoms were subdued. Faith helps us conquer the kingdoms of the world so we no longer focus on man’s goals but rather keep Continue reading
The last couple of weeks have been positively psychedelic around here cuz I have been trippin! No, I’ve not branched out into the dark side but my head is positively spinning Continue reading
Have you ever heard the old adage, don’t pray for patience because then all kinds of things will happen that try your patience? As true as that may be, I believe these trials are God-given opportunities to Continue reading
Is your life filled with a niggling sense of uncertainty?
Are you reluctant to turn on the news because the headlines scream, FEAR! BE AFRAID!? The media loves to be Continue reading
Today, it is my pleasure to welcome a guest post from a dear friend of mine: homeschooling mother of four, amazing wife and mom extraordinaire Courtney. I know you will enjoy her encouragement!
It’s what my husband serves for dinner.
Not really! But it motives my four year-old to eat her chicken for dinner. She heartily calls out, “Daddy, what did you kill for dinner?” Coyote legs are Continue reading
Today I received a very special invitation. It did not come wrapped in vellum, engraved or addressed in calligraphy. But rather in a gentle whisper while still dark outside; a voice my spirit recognized, requesting my presence to watch the sign rise. As I lay drowsily in bed I began Continue reading
Howdy! Got your Bible*? Yay! Open it to Matthew 6:5-13 and let’s talk about prayer. You might want to get a pencil too so you can underline the scriptures we discuss.
Prayer is just conversation between us and God – it can happen anywhere, anytime and the more you do it the more comfortable you get with it and Him.
The purpose, like talking to a friend, is to build the relationship between you and God. When we understand who He is and who we are to Him, great things happen!
It’s kind of like when you first meet that cute guy Continue reading
In Ezekiel’s time part of the population of Israel had been taken away as captives to Babylon. Those left in Jerusalem, even after seeing their countrymen exiled, still didn’t get the message. The priests were defiling the temple, worshiping idols instead of the Most High God yet they didn’t stop their offensive behavior. Pride blinded them to their sin.
It’s not unlike what we’re experiencing today, in America. Our country is slowly falling apart right before our eyes and most are oblivious. Soon, our circumstances will change so dramatically Continue reading
There are times in life when God calls us to a period of rest. Not rest, like lay down and take a nap but real rest that results in a quieting of our spirit. This quieting, which brings true peace, takes time. Let’s look at Noah * – his name in Hebrew actually means ‘rest’. After spending 100 years being ridiculed for building a boat nobody wanted to board (not much of an evangelist was our Noah) I think the guy deserved a rest! Once finished with the boat he must have been ready to kick back, put his feet up and cruise.
I can imagine his thoughts, “A flood? No problem – my ark is epic!”
