This morning I read Galatians. It was written around 50 A.D., which is 1,970 years ago. The prayer could have been written today. God is eternal. God’s goodness reigns over heaven and earth. Our troubles and worries go from generation to generation. We dress differently and technology changes, but evil continues to lurk around earth.… Continue reading God Will Never Fail Us
I have been reflecting on the last year. Honestly, it is like a sad little party. Last August, my mom was diagnosed with a brian tumor and died on Christmas Day. My father had died 5 years earlier on Christmas Eve. Lately, I have been feeling anxious and overwhelmed. I have every right to mourn… Continue reading The Lord Knows Those Who Are His
When you plan for the future, do you always pray about it first? I try. Sometimes, I realize that I am making plans without asking God first or praying about it. My mind starts wondering and dreaming, and I forget to stop and ask God, is this what you want me to do? When our… Continue reading Rooted In Jesus
On those days when the world seems to be spinning out of control, hang in there and keep on trying. Lately, I have to pray a little more. I feel like the world is shouting and jumping up and down all around me. Being immersed in social media feeds, certainly does not help me. I… Continue reading Keep Trying
This morning I read the book of Daniel, when Daniel’s friends were thrown in the fiery furnace, because they would not worship false gods. Why does God make us walk through the difficult times? Why doesn’t he just save us? Being a Christian will not always be comfortable. We may go through difficult times, that… Continue reading Why Does God Let Us Walk Through The Fire?
I feel like everyday I write that we are living in an uncertain time. It feels uncertain to us, but not to God. God knows the beginning and the end of time. Nothing is a surprise to God. We need to let go of ourselves, trust in God and have faith that God will complete… Continue reading God’s Narrative
“Watch, stand fast in your faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.” 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 I am so thankful for my heavenly father, protecting me and watching over me. Let all that you do be done with love.
We have the freedom of choice. God let us fulfill the scriptures by crucifying his only son. What makes us so determined to do our own will? Do we think that we can manifest what we want into existence, with sheer determination and force? Jesus died on the cross for us. People mocked him. They… Continue reading God’s Will Reigns
We are living in unusual times. Our church opened up yesterday. Of course, it is different. People had to sit at least 6 feet apart, and they had to wear masks, except for the singing. Kids under 10 are not allowed in the sanctuary, so we still have to watch services online. Church is a… Continue reading Every Nation, Tribe, Tongue, and People Will Be Singing God’s Praises Together
The Coronavirus has certainly turned our lives topsy turvy! Even though we are entering Phase 2 on Friday, we are not going back to normal anytime soon, if ever. Today in Virginia, we heard an update on schools and sports for the Fall. Some are on, some are off. Schools plan to practice social distance… Continue reading We Are Not of the World
