Unshaken “Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.” – Psalm 91:6 I hate to sleep in a room that is too warm.  I decided to open my window one night to let some fresh air in.  My dog likes to sleep right…

    What is your worst fear?

    “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” – 2 Timothy 1:7 The phrase, “Do Not Fear,” is written in the bible 365 times.  Does that mean God is telling us we can live fearlessly every day of the year? When asked what my worst fear is, my quick answer is usually a description of an eight legged creature with black fur and beady eyes.   The spider!  But in truth my heart fears many other things.  It’s natural to have weaknesses and fear certain things. Fear can be a natural healthy thing where our bodies warn us of danger, and then there’s the other…

    Play it forward

    “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” – Nora Roberts I was sitting around one day pondering life, and a thought crossed my mind.  I thought about how miraculous it is that babies can live in a womb, without even being able to breath.  For me I was thinking on the surface – If a person stops breathing or cannot breathe, then certainly they can’t live.  The miracle of life, and how God facilitated it is so amazing.   How God infused the human spirit into…

My first thought was, Isis. This world is so full of evil, and corruptness. Not to say that there isn’t any good in the world, but it’s so evident every time I turn on the news what we are dealing with.  A lot of people want to blame God, because He isn’t evidently stepping in. But what do you…

    Written In Red

    “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” – Psalm 119:11 In Exodus 20 Moses wrote the Ten Commandments on a tablet of stone.  It was smashed by Moses out of anger, and then I believe re-written.  No matter how many times you push rules on people, they will always find ways to, “break,” the rules.  But God always has a forgiving spirit, especially with a heart of true repentance. “He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant–not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” – 2 Corinthians 3:6 The gospel…
