Biblical Wisdom

Sometimes the answers we seek to life’s troubles are in the Bible. Can I make a difference? Does God care? Am I good enough?Yes!

Lessons from Eve

I sat in on an adult Sunday school class a few weeks ago. They are journeying through Genesis, one of my favorite books of the Bible. There’s just so much that happens in that book. The world gets created. Humanity gets created. Humanity falls. The flood occurs and all kinds of other major events. On … Continue reading »

Not Natural, Supernatural

At the weekly Bible study that I attend, we have been talking about the Gospel of Matthew. This week we were talking about the, “eye for an eye” and the “love your enemies,” part found in chapter five.

The Light After the Darkness

The Bible study that my hubby and I attend, recently focused on the temptation of Jesus, out in the wilderness, found in Matthew. There are certain aspects of that account, that always jump out at me. One is that Satan doesn’t even go after Jesus until He’s at His weakest, nothing to eat for forty … Continue reading »

Gideon Inspiration

The Midianites were stealing their crops every year and killing their cattle, leaving them to starve. Once again, when things got bad enough, … Continue reading »

Who Do We Believe In?

A few weeks ago, our pastor preached a sermon on believing in God from a distance. I took lots of notes and have reflected on it for the past few weeks. When most Americans are asked if they believe in God, they will say yes. What would you say if I asked you that question? … Continue reading »

Sharing the Light

Last Sunday, one of the teens in my Sunday school class told me she had something to tell me. I kind of chuckled, wondering what it might be. You just never know with teenagers. Their stories can make me laugh, or make me cry, and sometimes make me think. She ended up sharing a story … Continue reading »

Everyday Can Be New Year’s Day

As I write this, we are a little over a week into the new year. I bought a brand new calendar that I have already begun to fill with school breaks and family dentist appointments. I love a new calendar and all of the possibilities that it represents. What new things will I accomplish this … Continue reading »

Peace Cannot Be Stolen

Yesterday, I made a quick trip into Athens, to purchase a couple of Christmas gifts for two ladies who I have come to hold dear. I had been thinking about what I wanted to get them and then I had been given an unexpected gift card. I took it as a sign and I went … Continue reading »
