Living with Bold Faith

I had lunch a few days ago with a very dear friend of mine. We hadn’t spoken in months and we had a ton of catching up to do. We worshiped at the same church for many years and we were Vacation Bible School partners for close to ten of them. We began talking about … Continue reading »

Getting off the Treadmill

As I sat down to write this post, I prayed that God would meet me at my keyboard. My goal is always to share with my readers the places and faces where I see Him or how He may be working behind the scenes, and encourage others to do the same. I believe that God … Continue reading »

The Blessing in Wrestling

I recently read the account ¬†of Jacob wrestling with God found in Genesis, Chapter 32. I’ve always found this story fascinating. God appeared to Jacob in the form of a human and allowed him to wrestle with Him physically, all night long. When it was daybreak and Jacob was still at it, He touched the … Continue reading »

Prison Promises

Yesterday, I read the account of Joseph in prison, found in Genesis 41 and 42 and although I’ve read it many times previously, his story really spoke to me. Joseph had done absolutely nothing to wind up in prison. Yet, there he sat. He had been a faithful servant to Potiphar and had remained faithful … Continue reading »

The Pitfalls of Familiarity

Yesterday, our pastor talked about the passage in Luke where Jesus started his ministry. Luke’s Gospel, has Jesus getting baptized and then going straight out to the desert for forty days to be tempted by Satan. Right after that, he began preaching. He began preaching in Galilee and was well received, but when he went … Continue reading »

Seeking and Finding

It’s been a long, short week this week. While the kids have only had to go to school four days because of the holiday on Monday, it has seemed particularly long. Both of my teens have been fighting off the crud and have been super reluctant to get up in the mornings. I have had … Continue reading »

The Choice to Forgive

Yesterday, I was reading the part in Genesis, where Jacob was going back home to his father’s land. He had run away twenty years before after stealing his father’s blessing from his brother Esau. He had also swindled his brother out of his birthright. Esau was planning on killing him when their mother intervened and … Continue reading »

Cone Wisdom

Our dog, Sandy, had surgery a couple of days ago. He had a couple of hopefully, benign tumors removed. He has stitches and so our veterinarian sent him home with a surgical collar, otherwise known as the dreaded cone. He’s downright pitiful in it. It’s bulky. He runs into the walls and has a hard … Continue reading »

The Servants Know

On Sunday, my pastor preached on the wedding at Cana, found in chapter two, in the Gospel of John. I love that story. It was Jesus’ very first miracle in John. I have heard sermons focused on many different aspects of it. I’ve seen it pointed out that Mary told the servants to, “Do whatever … Continue reading »

MLK Day Reflections

Today, our country is observing Dr. Martin Luther Kink Jr.’s birthday and all of his accomplishments for civil rights. The first time the day was celebrated in Georgia was in 1986. I was sixteen and simply grateful for the day off from school. I never really gave much thought to the reason why. To be … Continue reading »
