Choose you this day

Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve;  God chose to wake us up this morning. He chose to put breath in our lungs. He chose to bring us a new day, and in this new day, He has given us aRead more

Do what you can

‘When we do what we can do, God does what we can’t.’ In Acts 16:25-26, Paul and Silas did what they could do. They were in prison, locked up in chains. They did the only thing they could do, they prayed and sang praises. And when they did what they could do, God did what onlyRead more

He is a buckler

Psalms 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. Is it just me…or do you read that verse and experience a substantial swell in confidence? Does it energize you in a way that makes you feel as thoughRead more

Good intentions and burned meatballs

TRUTH: I burned grape jelly meatballs last night…they smelled delicious, they looked delectable, but hidden under that yummy grape jelly- chili sauce glaze was a burnt shell of nastiness. With that disgusting taste of yuck, the hopes I had in a dinner of ease and no complaints from my littles was crushed…my intentions were right,Read more

What a memory taught me about words

A little over 6 years ago, I found myself sitting on my boyfriend’s couch opening a gift he had presented to me. The gift was placed in a bag and hidden in a tiny green box. As I opened the box,my eyes beheld a stunning princess cut diamond perfectly mounted on a beautifully simple band,Read more

Olympics got me thinking…

   Anyone else watch the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics? I did, and it was spectacular! Ahhh! Watching the athletes walk in with emotion written all over their faces, some with great big smiles spread wide, others stern and focused eyes filled with intensity, while others overtaken in the moment with glassy eyes hadRead more

A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid…

   TRUTH– we all have sin in our lives. Romans 3:23 affirms this, ‘For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,’ With that sting reminder telling us we are not perfect, we find hope when we read Acts 3:19 ‘Repent then, and turn to God, so that your sins may beRead more
