Thankful Despite . . .

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. Psalm 95:1-2 NIV I looked around my office and sighed. What a mess. Books stacked knee-high, papers separated in every vacant spot on the desk – my to-do list had been shoved from the refrigerator door, to the living room, to the bedroom. . .ending up in my office. Moving it didn’t seem to make it go away. The news roared from the...

My Heart Belongs to Him

My son, give me your heart and let your eyes delight in my ways…Proverbs 23:26 NIV Give Me thy heart, says the Father above — No gift so precious to Him as our love. I will never forget it. It was the one hymn that, without fail, brought tears to my eyes. It started when I was a child. Who knows why, but when this hymn would float through the sanctuary, I cried. It was my calling as a little girl. The one moment when I felt the finger of God touch my heart. I have plans for you. Give me...

Bigger and Better

Bigger and Better – She Said If anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward. ~ Matthew 10:42 NIV “Be the bigger, better person.” Mom’s advice was hard but I knew she was right. Even when someone treated me badly, Mom encouraged me to rise above the junk. I’ve said the same thing to my boys, both as children and as adults. Be bigger and better. Offer kindness, show mercy, give...

Teen Take: Evangelism (Clashentertainment.com)

A devo from my friend Rob Cook. Visit www.clashentertainment.com. Awesome site for your teen. Thanks to Ken Rainey for his hard work to make it perfect. Teen Take: Evangelism Last Updated on Sunday, 28 July 2013 08:02 Posted by Clash Sunday, 08 September 2013 01:04 By Rob Cook I use to think that, in order to share Jesus with people, I’d have to approach them about it. If you’ve ever done that or had someone do it to you, it’s awkward, isn’t it? Not to mention the person you approach, nine out...

Sand Sayings

Sand Sayings

I stretched out on the beach and the sun gently warmed my body. It was soothing. Not hot at all. A soft late summer wind brushed the sand. It wrapped the tender heat of the sun tight against me and for an instant, I was completely at rest…just like God had wrapped His arms around me. It’s wonderful to let my imagination soar. As much as I love the Father, my inability to see Him physically sometimes resonates in my imagination. I love searching for the words that best describe the...

Marble Not!

Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you. Genesis 28:15 ESV “Marble not!” My brother laughed hysterically at a joke about a country preacher who got his facts twisted. “Country” preachers in the mountains sometimes get their words twisted when they get into that “preachin’ hell-fire and damnation mode.” And this preacher got his marble nots mixed up with his...
