We walk around in a cone of uncertainty every day.
If you look up “procrastination” in your Funk and Wagnals you’ll see my mug shot. The inscription beneath my photo reads, “If it weren’t for the last minute I wouldn’t get anything done.” Amy Torres wrote about procrastination on the Writing Cooperative today. Mrs. Torres discusses the types of putting off we do. She suggests […]
Selfies can post a danger to us if we’re prideful and careless.
Independence is the exemption from reliance on, or control by others; self-subsistence or maintenance; direction of one’s own affairs without interference. That seems to have worked for the pilgrims who ventured to these shores in the 1700’s. They were oppressed by a tyrannical, possessive British Crown bent on controlling and running the affairs of […]
Stress touches us all. God’s word provides the best stress relief possible.
If you’ll look in your dictionary for “directionally challenged” you’ll see my picture next to the definition. I have to take my granddaughter to Walmart with me to find our car when we leave. I’ve been lost in our own subdivision before. If it weren’t for my GPS, I’d probably spend most of my time […]
Will you just show up today and allow Jesus to provide for you?
There is no room for religion in the lives of true believers.
The good news of the Gospel is simple enough for a child to understand.
Vacation Bible School always teaches me, as well as precious children in our community, about Jesus.
Life is a choice. We can trust in what we think is best, or we can trust in God.
ALL we have is faith.
How will we react when we see God for the first time?
According to a recent study by the American Culture and Faith Institute, a paltry 30 percent of those claiming to be born again Christians responded that they’d go to heaven because they have confessed their sins and accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Respondents were given 10 options to choose from, one of which was the […]
Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ […]
The operative word in that question is “doing” The Gospel of Jesus Christ turns on that word. The law is about “doing”. Grace is about “Being”. Folks who work hard to be a “good Christian” miss the message of Christ’s ministry. (By the way, there’s no such thing as a “good” Christian.) For some (I was […]
Books about God’s grace and what it means and what it will do abound. Sometimes I like to boil complex topics down into chunks my simple mind can digest. God’s free gift of grace, to me, is . . . Outright Undeserved Totally sufficient Exclusively God’s Eternal Universal–available to all Indiscriminate Spiritually given Spiritually […]
We’ve been mislead about what is truly “free” by advertising folks

How would you like your eggs today, over-easy, scrambled, fried, sunny-side up, soft-boiled, hard-boiled, poached, or shirred?? How about your steak; rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, or well done?? Choice of potatoes? This sounds like questions for a meal in a restaurant right? Can you relate the above questions to today’s Church?
In 1945 two brothers-in-law opened the first Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop in Pasadena, California. They sold 31 flavors, one for each day of the month. Since then the iconic dessert giant boast 7,500 stores worldwide and have created more than 1,000 unique flavors of ice cream. Christianity seems to have adopted the Baskin-Robbins business model. […]
You can not separate the church from the state. The two are inexorably interwoven. Lots of atheists and anti-Christian folks quickly point to the Establishment Clause in our U.S. Constitution as the authority for doing all sorts of litigious anti-church, anti-Christian stuff. The Establishment Clause is the ACLU’s mantra. Our beautiful, powerful, time-honored U.S. Constitution falls […]
What’s your definition of “Spectacular”?
You can overcome any obstacle in life if Jesus is Lord of your life.
Jesus told us to love one another. “Another” means all those we meet and know.
lets shine our light on others
Sharing our scars helps us and others heal and give encouragement.
I love to read the Message version of the Bible. Not for study, nor for scripture memory. But for its melodic prose. Some chapters, to me, become devotionals and grist for meditation. Isaish 65 is one of those. See if you agree. Isaiah 65 – The People Who Bothered to Reach Out to God 65 1-7 “I’ve made […]

When does God begin to restore us after we’ve blown it with Him?
If we “Let go and let God”, what must we let go OF?
If we wake up with guilt on on conscience, we need to rid ourselves of that toxin before heading into our day.
OUr country is rapidly drifting away from God’s pier of security. John Ed offers a suggestion to rescue us.
Sometimes we have to quit enabling our loved ones and help them grow up by kicking them out.
I need a quiet place without distractions or interruptions and a quiet TIME so God can speak to my heart.
I need a quiet place, free of distractions and interruptions, to meet with God every day.
Jesus is the only one who can break the chains that bind us to our past.
I do lots of stupid things, but God always brings me through them with His grace and mercy.
When we trust wisely with those we learn can really be trusted, we discover we can trust them more and more.
Jesus is either God, has he claims in the Bible, or he’s a liar, was not divine, and was bent on deceiving people.
Eternity is God’s realm and we will experience it some day, but not now.
