Our Gifts

Psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation! NKJV We all have gifts. Some we are aware of and use prolifically, while others lay hidden deep within us – dormant. We live our lives, staying within our comfort zone. The thought of taking a new step […]

Don’t Be Like Jonah!

Early in the day, I can be heard asking God to reveal His will for me. Many times, I am quickly aware of a direction I should take. Sometimes, though I am not so sure. At times, such as these, I continue on with my day by being productive and only doing those things that […]

Care for One Another

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the Kingdom of God is not in word but in power. (NKJV) Valentine’s Day is almost here again. A form of insanity takes over as we are urged by manufacturers to show our love for one another, by giving something packaged in red or in a chocolate box. It is a […]

Philippians 2:29-30 Hold such men in esteem; because for the work of Christ he […]

What is Love?

So after asking ‘Where is the Love?’ – how do we recognize love? The International Children’s Version of the Bible explains it perfectly. If you are experiencing a life without the following elements of respect, then it is not love! 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not […]

I do not apologize for any apparent repetition in my words. I feel strongly there is at least one teenager or young person needing to be saved from a life of despair – and so here goes. Psalm 55:22 Give your worries to the Lord. He will take care of you. He will never let […]
