The Right Words at the Right Time

In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry. Ps 20:1

God’s timing is impeccable!
Yesterday evening suddenly became a little nerve wracking. A couple of phone calls and some texting had me a little on edge about what was going to happen in the near future. Continue reading

Milk and Meat

Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment. 1 Peter 2:2

When you are born-again (John 3:3) it is much like the first birth in that you must have someone take care Continue reading

New Birth – New Life

Last time I took a look at the birth of Jesus, which probably wasn’t on December 25th but then no one knows for sure.
I’ve seen headstones on graves that didn’t have a birth date or perhaps had the wrong one. Continue reading

What is and isn’t important!

This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit. Matt 1:18

Yesterday I was doing some research on the birth of Jesus. Though His birth will be celebrated in less than a month, I don’t think He was actually born on December 25th. Continue reading

I Take For Granted

I took a few days away from the blog last week for Thanksgiving. But while looking through some archives on my computer I found the following poem. I first wrote it when my daughters were very young, probably 20 years ago.

The Pilgrim story has been told over and over.
I remember being told the story in grade school. We dressed like Pilgrims and Indians for the Thanksgiving program.
This band of separatists sought nothing more than religious freedom. Continue reading

The Reward of Sacrifice

Today I’m not exactly sure what my thoughts are. A situation has been building in our family and came to fruition last night.
It’s not the way I wanted it; my hand was forced.
Yet, as I fasted and prayed I have to believe that God orchestrated everything. Continue reading

The Petition

Almost ½ of the states in the union have petitions to secede from the rest of the country.
The state of Texas has well over 100,000 signatures, significantly more than the 25,000 needed to garner the attention of the White House.
All the talk about secession is on the heels of a country divided over the presidential election. Continue reading

I know I would feel that way!

Yesterday’s Morning Thought was about the Prodigal Son’s father. The question is about the actions, thoughts, and feelings of the father while his son was gone.

I asked the same question on Facebook and received these replies.

  • That father was doing nothing but praying, probably fasting and trusting God. Continue reading
