A Sad Day

January 7, 2021

Yesterday was a sad day for Americans. When the US Capital building is invaded by protesters, every citizen in our country should be sad.

There is one thing every Christian should do today. Pray and ask God for the healing of America.

Pray for President Trump and President-elect Biden. Both of these men need our prayers. They need wisdom and guidance. Pray that they seek answers from God.

Pray that there be peace in America.

Thankful for God’s Peace!

A wonderful verse for today! God promises safety and freedom from fear if we listen to Him.

The Cure For Shot Nerves

July 28, 2020

Thinking of something to encourage those who read this blog, I chose a book on hymns, “Then Sings My Soul” by Robert J. Morgan.
He wrote a forward “The Cure For Shot Nerves”. Thinking that is a catchy title, I read what he wrote about how the old hymns can calm the spirit and help bring peace to the soul.

It is rare in some churches to even hear the old hymns anymore and that is sad.
“In the Garden” He walks with me/ and He talks with me/ and tells me I am His own.
“Jesus Loves Me”, “Amazing Grace”, “I Need Thee Every Hour” and many more that encourage the heart.

Today, if you are stressed, feeling overwhelmed, or just plan discouraged, think of your favorite hymn and sing it, hum it or just let it flood your mind with how good God is, and soon you will find the comfort you need.

Peace In Troubled Times

July 20, 2020

When everyday things seem to get worse, especially if we listen to the news on TV, radio or other media, God give us blessed promises.

Jesus promised us peace in our hearts. The world around us may seem like gloom and doom, but we can have complete peace and freedom from fear. Cast all your cares upon Jesus. He cares for you.

Flag Day

June 14, 2020

Many Americans do not know that today, June 14, is Flag Day. This day is set aside to commemorate the original flag of the USA. The original had 13 stripes and 13 stars.

The Revolutionary War was fought by the patriots in 13 colonies. Each colony had its own flag. George Washington and the founding fathers decided that there should be one flag to show unity of the new Country.

Today, more than ever we need to once again come together in unity and peace.

God has richly blessed the USA with years of peace and prosperity. We citizens and especially Christians should unite together in love. We need to pray for our country, not only on Flag Day but everyday that God will restore peace, love and respect for one another.

Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Trusting Jesus In The Storm

April 4, 2020

And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
Mark 4:35-41

The Coronavirus feels like a great storm to many. Jesus is saying to us, “Peace be still.” Turn to Him to calm your fearful heart.
