Why Me?

Monday's Blessing1 Peter 4:12"Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange things were happening to you."​About five years ago I went through that fiery ordeal.  In fact, as I look back, that fiery ordeal seemed to be an understatement.  I had thought, at that time, the fire was so intense, there was just no way to forge through it.In less than a month, I had lost my job, I was over 50 (which [...]

Who Ever Said It Was Going to be Easy?

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 15:54:44 GMT

Monday's BlessingPsalm 37:23"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. "​I get so flabbergasted when someone asks me, "Why did God do this to me?"  Why would anyone think that God intentionally targeted them to maim and make them miserable?  All accounts in the Bible show no such personality of God.  Yes, it is understood in the old testament that he punished those who refused to listen to him.  But there is not one reading where God aim [...]

Monday's BlessingIsaiah 61:1-3"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; He ha sent me to heal the brokenhearted.... to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. "​Sometimes life hits us with a blow so hard that it knocks us right off our feet. We are sucker-punched, and it is so unexpected, and so horrible, that we ca [...]

Practicing Faith, Hope, and Love

Monday's Blessing1 Corinthians 13:4-8 "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. " [...]

Life's Purpose

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 15:34:21 GMT

Monday's BlessingMatthew 6:33"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."Are you searching for your life's purpose? I don't believe there is not one of us out there who questions if they are on that "highlighted" path intended to find fame and happiness. Honestly, even if you haven't cried out for fame, you've at least asked God to provide you with life's daily necessities.I believe we are innately continual "seeke [...]

Monday's BlessingJeremiah 31: 16-17 "Thus says the Lord, "Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears; for your work shall be rewarded, " declares the Lord, "and they will return from the land of the enemy.  There is hope for your future," declares the Lord.Sometimes , no matter how hard we pray or how long we stand in faith, things don't turn out as we had hoped.  Some of you out there are praying for your marriages, others are asking that your present gir [...]

Monday's BlessingCorinthians 3:17 "Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom."No doubt you’ve seen the bumper stickers:    “If you can read this, thank a teacher” …    “Enjoy your freedom? Thank a veteran.”But where is the bumper sticker that says:    “If you love America, thank God Almighty.”As the Bible verse from 2 Corinthians 3:17 says above, where the Spirit of the Lord is, there [...]

The Loss of a Beloved Pet

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 14:13:24 GMT

Monday's BlessingRevelation 21:4 "He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed."What a terrible flow of emotions that comes with a loss of a beloved family member.  These delightful, furry creatures bring such warmth, love, and nurturing to our homes each day.  It is devastating when they leave and flood of grief floods us for a period of time.  In our despair, we relive [...]

Monday's BlessingJoshua 1:9 "...Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."FATHERS' DAY HISTORYSonora Dodd, of Washington, first had the idea of a "father's day."

Monday's BlessingPhilippians 4:6"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."Lately I've been inundated with stress and have been spending a majority of my time "chillin" as my doctor suggested.I had never thought that stress could become so affluent in my life as its talons pierced at my physical presence repeatedly. Being a Type A personality, and always managing to get everything done on tim [...]
