Nothing to Fear

Many of us will never have to fight in wars, but we will be challenged with the everyday battles of life. Thankfully, when we love God, put our total trust in Him, and do the best we can each day, we will be victorious. We may not win every battle, but the war is already won.

Be Cool

Doesn’t it feel awesome on a hot summer day when a cloud drifts in front of the sun and tempers its blazing heat? Likewise, when we are in the heat of our daily battles, the shadow of God’s love is a wonderfully refreshing thing. But the greater thing is, we don’t have to wait for God’s shadow to pass over us; we can slip into the shade of it anytime we want. In fact, we can dwell there constantly.

Unfortunately, we tend to rush ahead of God’s plans for our lives, putting ourselves smack dab in the middle of life’s troubles.

It’s Not About Money

The phrase, “In God we trust,” is constantly being bantered about on Facebook; as people post varying memes regarding the removing of it from our currency and various other items. Like this one for instance:money meme

Don’t get me wrong; I think it’s good that we collectively show our allegiance to God in the many ways we do, and I think it would be good if we continue to do so. But, I also believe that in the overall scheme of things it really doesn’t matter. Read the rest of this entry »

You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet!

crepes 1 Aug 2016 quoteSometimes we anticipate an event and when it finally arrives, it isn’t as exciting and wonderful as we thought it would be. We’ve all been there and done that when it comes to things not living up to the hype, but to see God… Wow! To have God smile and say, “Welcome home.

The Wonderful Circle of Love

We did not earn reconciliation; it’s a gift from God through Jesus, and all we did was receive His gift. This is one of the most important principles of Christianity; we cannot earn our salvation, but need merely accept it. We cannot do our way into God’s grace.

We must merely thank God, seek Him, receive His love, and watch as our love for Him grows with every new revelation He presents to us. And all the while, we should remain joyful and at peace as we seek God. The amazing thing is, the more we seek Him, the more peace and joy He gives to us.

It’s a wonderful circle of love; lake 7-30-2016 quote

Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Romans 5:11

He’ll Come Around

When I was very young I knew nothing of God, but then I was taken to Sunday school and church. When I was ten years old I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and began to learn about Him and God. Then, as I got older, God and Jesus became less important to me, I stopped going to church and slipped easily into a life of sin. I was, though I didn’t realize it, God’s enemy.

Fill ‘er Up Joe and Off We Go

It seems to me the Holy Spirit is God’s love—His very essence; the knowing Him and trusting Him, hoping in Him and accepting His unconditional love. For without hope, God could not hold our attention for long. Read the rest of this entry »

There Are No Accidents

river walk 4 5-3-16 quoteI believe we are the living conduit of everything God desires to do in this world, and everything we do and say is important. We might do good, we might do bad, or we might do what seems to us inconsequential, but in God’s eyes and for His purpose, everything we do and say, He will use toward His ultimate goals. There are no accidents. Read the rest of this entry »
