“Remember Me.” ~2016

  This has been a year worth remembering. For many, it’s a year that they want to see come to a swift and painful demise. So many people have been saying lately that 2016 was worthless, awful, and just plain nasty. I ask that you take a look at it again and consider what the Lord has done for you this year. Yes, many bad things have happened, but there was also plenty of good. I bet that if you […]

Exodus Exposition

I am currently reading and studying the book of Exodus. I’ll admit that it is a little tedious and wordy, as it is full of rules for God’s people to follow as well as very specific blueprints for the construction of the Tabernacle. (The Tabernacle was the movable sanctuary where the priests were to offer regular sacrifices to God.) God was very clear in His instructions to His people, the Israelites. He was not ambiguous or confusing in His laws […]

An Excellent Life

  We, as Christians, have an enemy. He is real. He is the devil, and his goal is to destroy us. How do I know this? The Bible tells me plainly in 1 Peter 5:8, “ Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. He is not content to leave us alone. If we think that we can live on yesterday’s success, we will be sorely disappointed. I […]

Short and Sweet

I was asked a question recently that left me praying and seeking the right way to answer it. Someone asked me,”What is there to look forward to in this life?” The implication was that there is, of course, the blessed hope of eternity, but the real question was if there was something to actually look forward to while we’re here. I mean, it is easy to hope in heaven and look forward to going there someday. But what should keep […]

Targeting Gorillas :)

  There sure is a lot going on in our world these days! We’ve got the Target transgender controversy, the gorilla “god”, the choice-less election, and many other social issues happening daily. I’m almost afraid to see what’s coming next! Keep reading to see why I’m not. 😉 The world is constantly changing, ever evolving into a more God-less society each day. We used to be a nation that stood for morality, virtue, sanctity of life, and common decency. Now […]

“So You Wanna Go Back To Egypt?”- Keith Green

We’ve all heard the expression, “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.” The implication being that you might wish for something, then when your desire is met, it is not at all what you hoped it would be. I was reading my Bible the other day and I came across a story that reminded me of this saying. Many of you are probably familiar with the story of the Israelite captivity in Egypt as told […]

“The Bell Cannot Be Unrung.”

    We took our daughter Laura, who just turned 15, to the movies last weekend. There was much debate about which movie to see. She wanted to see a movie that we felt was inappropriate for her to be viewing, so we found another movie she would enjoy and saw it instead. The movie we saw was Batman vs. Superman. We all had a good time, because even though it is not my type of movie, it was nice […]

Revelations

I had a realization about myself the other day, I spend way too much time focused on me. I worry too much about my needs, my time, and my unfulfilled hopes and dreams. When I should be laser-focused on what I can do for God and others; I am busy plotting how to make my own life easier or better. I have always mistakenly assumed that my main goal in life was to bring glory to God. However, in reality […]

The Cup of Christ

  I’d like to share with you something wonderful and amazing that my brother-in-law, Steve, shared with our family as we sat around the table after Easter dinner this year. It was a video he had come across by Mike Donehey of Tenth Avenue North regarding the true significance of the cup of Christ. As he sat and related this to us, my eyes were really opened and I began to get goosebumps as I thought about God and His […]

Fill ‘er up!

      As usual my weekend went by in a flurry of activity, but many things were accomplished and it was fun! Friday night I dropped off two of my teens at church for a retreat that they were going to with their youth group. On Saturday I was able to spend some quality time getting to really know a couple of sweet friends from church while I waited for my daughters to practice for a musical they will […]
