Rule Number One

House rules, school rules. Rules for driving, rules for riding and flying, rules for board games, sports, and even social media posts. The list goes on. As a teacher, I always felt badly for kids as the first day of … Continue reading

I AM

What’s in a name? Expectant parents spend hours laboring over a name for their child. They may research the meaning and background of names as well as who has shared the name. A name is important in that it may … Continue reading

Who Me? Couldn’t Be!

Remember when your teacher called on you, and your hand wasn’t even raised? It felt like a dirty trick, especially when others around you were clearly volunteering! Seems like a similar thing happened to Moses when God spoke to him … Continue reading

Prophecies Fulfilled

When someone makes a promise, it does not necessarily mean the promised action will occur at that moment. Likewise, a delay in seeing the promise fulfilled does not mean it will never happen. Check out a few of the prophecies … Continue reading

Return to Sender

Wasn’t it delightful to give gifts this holiday season? Were they received with a smile, a twinkle in the eye, excited giggles, and/or joyful gratitude? Or, was a gift handed back to you? Did anyone absolutely refuse to receive the … Continue reading

Mission: Possible

What is your passion? What are your gifts and talents? How could God blend those with your willing spirit to help accomplish the mission He’s assigned you? Listen to where He is calling you. Step into the light He is shining in front of you. Most of the people in the Bible could not have guessed the future God had in store when they stepped forward in faith and said yes. When “all things are possible with God” (Mark 10:27b), there is no ‘Mission: Impossible.’ Continue reading

What-a You Lookin’ At?

Let’s look beyond skin, and see people, people created by God. “God spoke: ‘Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature, ’” worthy of honor and respect. (Genesis 1:26a)

Remember what you learned in Kindergarten:

Be kind and respectful.
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Share.
And NO running in the halls! Continue reading

Are we wildly seizing temporary solutions to permanent problems or have we chosen a firm foundation on which to build our life? Can our faith withstand the outside forces beating against us? And, are we grounded on the solid Rock, the Rock called Jesus? Continue reading

An Appointment to Keep

Jesus kept His divine appointment. The question is, will we respond to His invitation by believing that He is God’s Son and choosing to follow Him. If we do, we are guaranteed an eternal heavenly appointment. From our viewpoint, it may appear delayed, but it will never be cancelled! Don’t miss it!
“They cried to You and were saved; in You they trusted and were not disappointed” (Psalm 22:5). Continue reading

For Life

So, can we apply this ‘fighting for’ and ‘choosing life’ to the youngest of God’s creation, the pre-born? From the earliest stage of development, science and medical knowledge verify that even an embryo is a distinct, living, growing, whole human being. I challenge you, if you haven’t done so recently, to check out ‘human fetus’ online and prepare to be amazed. That baby within the womb is not a ‘blob’ of cells, but rather a life carefully and wonderfully made by God, the Creator of the universe. Continue reading
