Only Three Things Left to Do

Only Three Things Left to Do

Do you wish there was more time in a day? I do. The demands of everyday life are great. Sometimes I do wonder how we all manage to get by with all the things we are asked to do. Juggling seems to be the style of living for many of us, especially during these last weeks of the year. Life is meant to be enjoyed, people cherished, and God worshiped. How can we accomplish that when we rush through things…

Who Does Support You?

Who Does Support You?

When things go south who or what does support you? Having a support system is one of those things in life that make a huge difference. There are times when we need support. When we are down or weary, we need someone to lift us up. Who does support you? What kind of support system do you have? Does it work? Human support systems fail My experience is that any human support system – no matter how good and dedicated it…

Don’t we forget why Jesus came into the world? The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on…

Resurrection Makes All the Difference

Resurrection Makes All the Difference

Resurrection makes all the difference, folks. Without the resurrection, we’d be without hope. Life would be just life, no hope for broken hearted. No hope for sick and unhappy. And, certainly, no hope for sinners. Blessedly, God knew better. He knew we needed him even when we did not know we needed him. Hence, he sent Jesus to die for us. Jesus came to friend us, teach us, and save us. Because Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected,…

Set for Life – and Beyond

Set for Life – and Beyond

The world is going crazy, it seems. Also, the everyday chaos seems to get worse and worse. Yet, we do not despair. We do not get discouraged. How come? Because, we have hope. And that is not just any wishful thinking or positive psychology. It is solid hope that delivers, rescues, and redeems. Our story does not end when we die. Because of Jesus our hope is always valid. That’s why we are set for life. And beyond. God, the one…

Are you afraid of the future? I hear you, the world seems to becoming all the time crazier. Or do you feel you have you lost your way?

Dress up in Hope, Faith and Love

Dress up in Hope, Faith and Love

Are you on your way to heaven? Do you know how we are supposed to spend our time waiting for the second coming of Jesus? How should we live our lives here on earth? How about dressing up in hope, faith and love? I don’t think, friends, that I need to deal with the question of when all this is going to happen. You know as well as I that the day of the Master’s coming can’t be posted on…

God Directs Your Path

God Directs Your Path

Do you need some encouragement right now? You’ve come to the right place. I have a verse, a quote, and a song for you today to uplift, inspire, and encourage you. It’s always too early to give up.

Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders— he’ll carry your…
