Where is Your Focus?

April 13, 2019

Easter is a week away and the question today is, Where is your focus? When we go shopping do we see symbols of Jesus resurrection or a huge display of Easter baskets, chocolates and jelly beans? Unfortunately, it is hard to find anything that honors the true meaning of the Easter, Jesus is alive!!

Celebrating with fun, food and family is great and there is nothing wrong with that, as long as our focus is on Jesus. Let’s be sure our children and grandchildren know and understand that Jesus died, was buried and three days later HE AROSE!!

Matthew 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Our Plans

March 20, 2019

Sometimes we make plans that seem very important to us at the time. Then something comes up, and those plans change. Maybe there’s an accident, a friend needs our help, or we cannot do it because we get sick. We are extremely disappointed and wonder, WHY?

God has allowed our plans to change. Remember, God loves us and He knows why. He may reveal the answer, but often He does not. That is when we need to trust Him all the more. He can turn our plans into His plan. The whole direction of our life can turn around in the change of just one of our plans. Are we trusting Him with our disappointments?

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Depressed?

March 14, 2019

If you rearrange the letters of DEPRESSION, you can spell the phrase “I PRESSED ON!”

No matter what you are going through today, don’t give up. Keep the Faith. Trust the Lord. God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life!

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

God’s Answer to Worry

Praise God

March 3, 2019

Many have heard from Chaplain McCabe’s own fire-touched lips, how this grand old doxology, that has doubtless been on more lips than any other uninspired production, was sung by the starving “boys in blue” [Union soldiers in the American civil war] that were incarcerated in Libby Prison [Richmond, Virginia]. Day after day they saw comrades passing away, and their numbers increased by fresh, living recruits for the grave. One night about ten o’clock, through the stillness and the darkness, they heard the tramp of coming feet, that soon stopped before the prison door until arrangements could be made inside. In the company was a young Baptist minister, whose heart almost fainted as he looked on those cold walls and thought of the suffering inside. Tired and weary, he sat down, put his face in his hands and wept. Just then a lone voice of deep, sweet pathos, sung out from an upper window—

“Praise God from whom all blessings flow;”

and a dozen manly voices joined in the second line—

“Praise Him all creatures here below”

and then by the time the third was reached, more than a score of hearts were full, and these joined to send the words on high—

“Praise Him above ye heavenly host;”

and by this time the prison was all alive, and seemed to quiver with the sacred song, as from every room and cell those brave men sang—

“Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.”

Psalms 30:12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
