Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. Matthew 10:32 Good morning from beautiful New Orleans! It is amazing how fast a few days go by when I’m on vacation. Maybe it’s because I’m super busy or maybe because I’m having a wonderful time. Last night I took…
And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly…
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:8 KJV Good morning! Christmas is almost here. I’m busy cleaning house and preparing for Christmas Day celebrations. I have one child and grandchild asleep in our…
Have you ever felt torn between being a good Christian and being who the world wants you to be? Have you been guilty of trying to justify today’s watered down standards with the Bible? Do you have a battle in your mind between what is right (what the news media says is right or what the Church says is right)? . . .
Sometimes as adults we are scared too. Have you ever felt like you were searching for something and just couldn’t decide which way to go? Do you ever feel like you are running around in circles never making any progress? . . .
Have you ever felt empty? Have you felt like no matter what you do, you can’t find happiness? Is being content something you can’t seem to wrap your mind around? Are you an overachiever, a workaholic, a perfectionist or something similar? . . .
Do you ever feel like you are unable to make positive change? Do you feel like the world is too big? Then, I have good news. The smallest of changes are viral in the scheme of changing the world . . .
Sometimes we get in a rut of going through a day-to-day routine, which can wreak havoc on our relationships and our self-esteem. We can get so caught up in what we are focused on that we lose who we are and what we believe in. At the end of the day we don’t feel like we have enough time to enjoy life. We may not even think we are not worthy of God’s love. . .
I’ve noticed that many people get caught up in the “how to” of prayer. I understand fully, because I’ve been there. I have been to prayer classes, where books have been passed out on what to pray for in various situations. I have read books trying to understand how to pray publicly and what to pray. I’ve listened closely and . . .
When I think back to when my children were growing up, I often regret not being there for them and providing them more. It was always my dream to be a stay home mother like my mom, which is not always possible in today’s world. So, I worked . . .
In many ways Christian life is like a diet. We learn how to behave and what to do from reading God’s word. If we follow Biblical teachings, slowly we will grow and see the benefits. What happens when we want to do something that we know we shouldn’t do (i.e. lie, cheat, steal, have affairs, gossip, hurt others, etc.)? What happens when we are tempted? . . .
For many people Monday’s mean we “have to” go to work and do what we don’t want to do for a long week. This type of thinking leads to a bad attitude. Have you ever considered what a privilege it is to work? There are many people who are not able to work. Have you ever considered that when we work we are pleasing God? . . .
