Trusting God

Sometimes life seems upside-down. When we draw closer to God, we begin to learn and trust that He has a plan for us and we can let go of many of life’s anxieties knowing that He has our best interest at heart.

A Call to Actively Seek

Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One, is though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.” Those are wise and deep words spoken by one of the most brilliant men who ever lived. It’s interesting to me that so often, Christians are criticized for … Continue reading »

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

Last Sunday, my pastor told Gideon’s story. It’s found in Judges 6-8. It picks up where once again, Israel had turned their backs on God, and once again, tragedy had befallen them. 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 »

The Comfort Zone Rut

As we plow into January, many of us are taking time to do a little self-reflection and try to address any ruts we may find ourselves. I’m a gal who loves a routine. I love my comfort zones. I mean, the name alone, has the word comfort in it. But, sometimes our comfort zone can … Continue reading »

Living In Divine Peace

Last week, our Advent focus was supposed to be on peace. I thought about it. I prayed about it. I even wrote about it and then God gave me the opportunity to live it. My car has had some sort of break issue going on, and last week, we got it into the shop. It … Continue reading »

As usual, she and I were crying like babies at the final scene. She commented during the movie, that the only thing she doesn’t like about it, … Continue reading »

December Reflections

Today is the first day of December. The Christmas season is well underway. I’m hearing Christmas songs playing on the radio. I’m seeing houses decorated with lights. I’m seeing cars, with trees strapped to the top. That always makes me smile. I have seen a huge board outside our cafeteria, full of wishes of children … Continue reading »

No Matter the Weather

Yesterday at work, the most popular topic of conversation was that rain was headed our way. Weather is always a well discussed subject in rural Georgia, but lately it’s been the centerpiece of our thoughts as well as our conversations. We haven’t had rain in 42 long days here and to add to our misery, … Continue reading »

Focusing on the End Zone

Last Friday night was our high school’s last home game. It also happened to be senior night. There was a great turn out. Unfortunately, our team lost, but they played well. There was only one touch down and boy was it a good one. A senior player named Roques Dowdy, ran the ball for a … Continue reading »

The Power of a Preposition

In the past few days, I have come across two different bloggers who commented on the verses from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, which read: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.” It’s a very familiar verse for me and I see it quoted often. … Continue reading »
