    Life Support

    “So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.” Romans 12:5 (KJV) Today after church a man we all held dear was in a car accident with his wife and friend. This friend had decided to come back to church with him, a week after he was saved. At the age of 76 he gave his heart to God. Before church was out the pastor had us pray with his new friend, almost with a sense of urgency. I figured as a new christian of course that would make sense. Little did we know what was about to occur. I got a text…

    It won’t rain always….

      Or in our case with such high heat and temperatures, it’s all anyone wishes for is rain.  With fire risks and heat stroke always on the prowl, a little rain is just the cure for a time of drought.  The song writer who wrote the song, “It won’t rain always,” was speaking to the fact that sometimes when it rains it pours, but it won’t rain always.  Weeping may endure for a night but joy always comes in the morning.  (Psalm 30:5) Today, I am speaking on another note.  That although sometimes we have all the rain we need, sometimes we go through periods of drought.  Periods where we…

    Miracle Oil

    “Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the Lord: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.” – 2 Kings 4:1 We all love a good miracle story.  Especially when tragedy strikes we like to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  There are many miraculous stories in the Bible; however, this one was really an eye opener for me. I believe God brought me to it for a reason to teach me something specifically; however, I’m…

    A time and a season

    “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” – Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is the saying,  “Everything happens for a reason.”  I hear it all the time, especially when things don’t turn out the way we want them too.   Is this really truth; biblical?  Are we predestined for everything that happens to us?  NO We all have a purpose; however, we also have free will to make choices on how we live.  Sometimes the circumstances that follow certain decisions, are a good indication, that not everything happens for a reason.  It’s not based on Karma either, that is a twisted version of the…

    To new beginnings

    “Live a life of inspiration, and of passion.  Anything else is eating away at time, and dying a slow painful death, rather than living.  Toiling and laboring for nothing but bread and futility.  Man cannot live on bread alone.  There is a purpose, a time and a season, and a God that oversees it all.”  – Amanda Batten “Make each day a masterpiece, we do not remember the days, we remember moments.”  Laughing with family and friends until it hurts, odd moments that are perfect because they are not, and will live forever in stories.  We may already be into the New Year, but it’s never too late for new…

    Well Laid Plans

    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 As human beings we are planners for the most part. We like to plan what we are going to eat, what we will be when we grow up, who we will marry, where we will live. I’m sure God had a plan before he set the earth in motion.  Sometimes plans are successful and sometimes they fail; even the best laid plans. A builder would never begin to build a house without a blueprint, and first counting the…
