Refreshing Kindness

Kindness is always refreshing. In this dark world, kindness is a great light that shines brightly. Paul wrote about how he had such joy and comfort from knowing of the love that was being shown to others. Paul also recognized that kindness refreshes people’s hearts. The word that is used means “to give rest.” It […]

Seek and Find

In Jeremiah we read: “You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart” (29:13). How awesome?!? If you seek God, you will find Him. Yet people so often are seeking and not finding God. Why? Because they are not seeking wholeheartedly. God has promised that if you seek Him, […]

Fill Your Horn

King Saul was told to destroy the Amalekites; he was given a command from the Lord. He disobeyed that command and God said, “I regret that I have made Saul king, because he has turned away from me and has not carried out my instructions.” Samuel was angry, and he cried out to the LORD […]

Case Before the Lord

As I was reading about the daughters of Zelophehad the other day, a verse spoke volumes to me. It is a simple verse, one that does not need you to crack open a commentary or understand a great deal of the Bible to comprehend. Numbers 27:5 says, “Moses brought their case before the LORD.” You […]

Good Company

It is very difficult to deeply immerse yourself in the world and expect to live a godly life.

Recently I read a posting from a friend who was sharing something she heard earlier on television. To summarize the discussion, she held that comfort and courage cannot coexist in life. I felt compelled to speak up because personally speaking I have both comfort and courage from Christ. I am not sure I would have […]

Nice Things

I always like to hear about good things. I do not want to hear bad news. I do not want to hear about bad things. I am sure you don’t like to hear anything bad either. In Isaiah we read that the people wanted to hear nice things. Not only nice things, but lies. Would […]

Rooftop Bird

“I lie awake, I have become like a lonely bird on a housetop.” Psalm 102:7 [NASB] Looking further: God understands what YOU are going through in life (Hebrews 4:15). Anger is okay. We all have emotions. We choose our response. (Ephesians 4:26) If you ask God to be near you, He WILL be near you […]

Changes

Life is filled with changes. We experience change every day. Sometimes change can be good and sometimes it is not so well received. I know when it is unexpected, change can make one feel like the ground is shaking beneath them. It can be overwhelming and very unsettling. Those who have graduated and proceeded forward […]
