The Gift of YOU!

Jesus said, “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” Luke 6:38 Continue reading

The Gift of Encouragement

Yesterdays Morning Thought about Working Together to Kill Giants has sparked another thought.

Years before Israel was standing face-to-face with their opponents, the Philistines. Neither army moved because of a Philistine champion called Goliath. Continue reading

Working together to kill giants!

Who killed the giant?
Surly you recall the story from Sunday school or Vacation Bible School.

Only a boy named David
Only a little sling
Only a boy named David
But he could pray and sing
Only a boy named David Continue reading

I believe the Creator

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Gen 1:1
I remember watching a bit of Bill Nye The Science Guy back in the 90’s.
Now he has waded in on the creation vs evolution debate.

Bill is urging parents not to pass their religious-based doubts about evolution on to their children.
“The Earth is not 6,000 or 10,000 years old,” Nye said in an interview. “It’s not. And if that conflicts with your beliefs, I strongly feel you should question your beliefs.” Continue reading

Three Views of Me (and you)

There are three ways in which I am looked upon, viewed, or known.
1 – The way I see me.
I am born-again, redeemed, saved, and a Christian. Much that I do is because I believe it is right according to what the word of God says. I read it, I understand it, and I act upon it. Continue reading

Faith and Football

Around 70 miles south of where I live is a town that very few have heard of – that is until this past week.
Kountze is like many other small Texas towns; they have a high school, they play football, and they support the team.
And like many other small Texas towns, God, church, and family are an important part of daily life. Continue reading


It is obvious that the United States of America has enemies; enemies that are bent on destroying us.
They live in nations around us; they live in the nation with us.
I find it ironic that, while living in the USA, they enjoy the freedoms afforded everyone. They enjoy the goods and services that we all enjoy. Continue reading

Inhale Eagerly

Ps 119:131 – I opened my mouth and panted, for I longed for Your commandments.
This verse caused me to stop and write a few notes last Sunday in Sunday school.
It’s the word “panted” that caught my attention. Continue reading

The Word is Jesus

We have been studying Psalm 119 in Sunday school for several weeks. It contains 176 verses but what you may not know is it uses the phrase “your word” thirty-five times.
John tells us in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 Continue reading

Yom Teruah – The Lord Comes


But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, Continue reading
