Epitaph…

This week, as I sat in the parking lot before Church Service, I looked out across the cemetery wondering about those buried there. I could see written on the tombstone’s names and dates. Some had written on them beloved Mother, Father, wife or husband but not much more. I started to think about their life… Maybe some were rich or …

Listening….

This week as I was studying the book of Revelation, I came across a phrase that was repeated 7 times in two chapters. That phrase was, “He that hath an ear, let him hear.”  I started to think about how we listen to God.  For most of us, the way we listen to God is by reading the Bible, Going …

Supreme Court

In the news this Week, the Supreme Court is looking at the abortion laws from Texas.  The Texas law basically bands abortions after 6 weeks of pregnancy.  Which is after the baby’s hearts starts beating.  Since most women don’t know they’re pregnant until after that, this law pretty much stops most abortions.   The Supreme Court is divided on where each …

This week I would like to share a story from Jentezen Franklin called “Leaning Side”. I hope you enjoy it.

Jesus Came to Dinner…

The other day, as I was leaving Wal Mart, I saw an older man dressed in raggedy clothes, standing at the street corner with a sign asking for help.  My first thought was, Oh No another bum begging for money and then to ignore him. I could easily justify not giving to this man, because after all he was probably …

Christmas Symbols.

Christmas is only a few weeks away.  We are busy shopping, making Christmas treats, and decorating our homes, But have you ever thought why? Maybe you have had a young child ask you “The Why Questions.”  You know… the why questions that a five-year-old asks. Why Christmas trees, why holly, why wreaths just to name a few.  So why do …

Halloween???

This week I would like to talk a little about the upcoming Halloween holiday. As Christians, should we celebrate this holiday? I don’t know if there is a definitive answer. First of all, understand that Halloween is mostly a western custom and it has no direct reference in the Bible. However, there are several Biblical principles that directly relate to …

Miracles Still Happens…

Count your Blessings….

After listening to the song “Count your Blessings” by Johnson Oatman,  I was thinking about all the blessings that God has given to me. Sometimes I think we take for granted all that God does for us everyday.  God truly gives us so many blessings each and every single day.  Some may even be so small that we might overlook …

Be all you can be…

The other day I saw an advertisement from our Armed Forces that said “Be all you can Be!”  You have to love the concept to be all you can be… that is to maximize and live your life to the fullest.  I would like to explore this concept in our spiritual life.  The phrase “Be all you can Be” Has …

Death…

We all have heard the debate about Life after Death.  Today I would like to speak a little bit about death after death.  So we are forgoing the conclusion that there is life after death. We need to know that there is death after death also. Just recently I came across this picture on Facebook. My first response to this …

I hope everyone has had a great week in the Lord. This week I would like to talk about trust. Since Covid started a year and a half ago, we have been told to trust science.
