We Shouldn’t Be Alive

We were watching an episode of “I Shouldn’t Be Alive” last night. A young couple had decided to rent a lodge and go on a hike in the rain forest. They chose the longest hike and began by following the signs along the way. But they got so caught up in the scenery and wildlife of the area that they didn’t notice when they left the trail. Then to add insult to injury, they made the decision to travel by compass even farther away from the lodge. They ended up spending several nights in the treacherous jungle staying on course …

Let His Love Wash Over You

    Awhile back I was feeling down and decided to go for a walk. The sky was a dark gray and filled with rain which matched the mood I was in. I put on my rain boots and headed out needing some kind of escape. The gentle rain smelled good as it hit each blade of grass and fallen leaves that littered the land. “Lord, I’m feeling kinda old I guess. I find myself worrying over things I have no control over and I’m just tired. I try to stay positive, yet deep in my heart I’m hurting.  I …

Loved in the Pit, Prison and Palace

  ‘For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ Romans 8:38-39 AMP Joseph was doomed to rot in prison over something he did not do. He spent approximately ten-plus years of his life serving faithfully in prison. Imagine 10 years of your life nowhere near what God said you would …

God’s Amazing Love

      Romans 8: 37-39  “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall trouble, hardship, persecution, or nakedness, danger, famine, or sword..No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through …

What Shall We Say

Romans 8: 37-39 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  shall trouble, hardship,persecution,or nakedness, danger, famine, or sword..No, in all these things  we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us: for I am convinced neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither present or future…nor height or depth, nor anything in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” What then shall we say in response to the above? I really believe COVID-19 is a wake-up call, and pray that it is not too late …

Women Show Their Love to Jesus

  Mark 16:1-5, 9  “When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting …

You Are Worth More Than You Think

    “God is within her; she will not fail.” Psalm 46:5 Do you ever have days where you just don’t feel good enough? No matter how far you may be on your walk with Christ, we all still have these kinds of days. As we get older, we start to look in the mirror and see the wrinkles, and we may start counting the gray hairs. We also may have gained a little weight because as we age, our metabolism slows down. You feel like that is who you are now and it hurts. I, myself, have lived a hard life. I didn’t …

Let Go & Pack Light

    Simply put, if you’re not willing to take what is dearest to you, whether plans or people, and kiss it good-bye, you can’t be my disciple. (Luke 14:33, MSG) So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not [carefully consider the cost and then for My sake] give up all his own possessions. (Luke 14:33, AMP) In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be My disciples.(Luke 14:33, NIV) So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple. (Luke 14:33 , NKJV)   …

The Greatest is Love

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13:12-13 – “For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (ESV) Message: God used Lila to teach me not only that your best friend doesn’t have to be the same age as you (I was in 8th grade when our paths crossed and she wasn’t yet one year old), or even attain the same numbers of chromosomes as you (she had Down Syndrome). …

The Broken Pot

I read this story about 18 years ago, I don’t know who wrote it but it immediately became a big part of my testimony as I could totally relate to it. Once upon a time there were 2 clay pots. These were no ordinary pots for they could talk. One was beautiful and exquisite and the other had several major cracks in it. The beautiful pot would taunt the broken pot every day. It said things like “I don’t know why they keep you around here. You are ugly and broken and can’t even do what a pot is supposed …
