Isaiah 55:6 talks about seeking the Lord now while you can find Him calling to Him now while He is near.
This is verse is not about time as we understand it and I did not find the meaning of it until I had penned an entire thought from my heart. It is rather about a time when God will leave this earth for it to be consumed by the sun. It was my first opinion that it portrayed God as one who comes by and leaves. I have never experienced God abandoning me or leaving where I am at. God…Continue

I do feel humbled when I see youthful zeal regardless of the age of a person. As I look at the whole I am minded that Jesus died for everyone and will take every believer with Him. God needs His whole spice cabinet which includes the staple salt right through the less used ginger. Though as a human I use ginger on just about everything you…Continue

Can someone please help me! My daughter is still having a hard time with me and her Dad. She is not speaking to me unless we have to be together for my youngest daughters wedding plans. She won't even give me her phone number. I have been praying for her. I'm so hurt that I get so emotional just thinking about her. Please pray for us!
Whether it is in an electronic device, in an agenda or in our mind, we all have a long list of things to do, the interesting thing is that most of the time our needs are in the bottom of this list or maybe not even in it. Do you take time to do the things you enjoy or are you so busy taking care of everyone else that there is no time left for you. If we are…Continue

I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” When Moses heard this, he covered his face because he was afraid to look at God. Exodus 3:6

Have you noticed how much we like it when people think like us, act like us and agree with us? We enjoy being in our comfort zone, a safe place where we are accepted and where it is easy to be a believer.
Sometimes we try so hard to be good and do all we can to show God our love, that we forget the people around us; we ignore those who disagree with us…Continue

It may have been a regular dinner at home, which was everything except regular, meals prepared with so much love by very special people or a simple bowl of lentils, shared with a friend over a…Continue
This is where the rubber meets the road as far as discipleship goes. I wonder how many times we sang this song and lied while we were singing.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually promise my children that I will do something or get something for them because I may or may not be able to comply and a promise has to be fulfilled. When we read in the Bible all the amazing things God says He…Continue
