It’s a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ Question

Afterward Jesus returned to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish holy days. [2] Inside the city, near the Sheep Gate, was the pool of Bethesda, with five covered porches. [3] Crowds of sick people—blind, lame, or paralyzed—lay on the porches. [5] One of the men lying there had been sick for thirty-eight years. [6] When... Continue Reading →

Endurance

Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. (Hebrews 10:36 NLT) Times are difficult. Things can be confusing. The world is mocking us. But we shouldn't be surprised by this. God told us exactly what to expect. And... Continue Reading →

Which Path to Take

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. [6] Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT) I think we can all agree, this last year was absolutely beyond our understanding. As we enter 2021, do not... Continue Reading →

Shut the Door

I have to begin here. In 2 Kings 4:33 (NLT): "He went in alone and shut the door behind him and prayed to the LORD." The beginning is to know what it means to shut the door. In this particular verse, translated from the Hebrew word sâgar, shut means to surrender. (Check out the entire... Continue Reading →

Stand Firm

This year has become too politically "correct," except what the world calls 'CORRECT' is NOT FREE FROM ERROR. Google the definition of POLITICS = the activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power. No wonder we are... Continue Reading →

How do I move forward from here?

New years. New beginnings. Always filled with good intentions. Goals. Plans. How do I move FORWARD? "Stay alert; be in prayer so you don’t wander into temptation without even knowing you’re in danger. There is a part of you that is eager, ready for anything in God. But there’s another part that’s as lazy as... Continue Reading →

Reckless Love

"Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one. Wouldn't you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbors, saying... Continue Reading →

Two are Better than One

"Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be...

Encourage Each Other

"Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them." (Ephesians 4:29, NLT) I have seen how, if someone is criticized and belittled, they want to give up. It breaks them. It causes them to actually NOT work... Continue Reading →

The Little Foxes

I have learned the hard way. Foxes will stalk their prey for days...weeks even. They study their habits. They learn the weaknesses of their prey. See a fox - scare it away - it will return. You must catch it. You must eliminate it. Or it will kill. A single fox can take out an... Continue Reading →
