Everything from Him

Tonight I had some tomato soup for dinner. It was upsetting to find no saltine crackers after I already prepared the soup. It just wasn’t the same. It didn’t take me long to grumble because there were no crackers, and then remember that I am blessed to have the bowl of soup. We often forget […]

More Than You Can Handle

Does God ever give you more than you can handle? That is something people debate often. Many times I hear that God will never give you more than you can handle. This is often said when we are going through something tough in life like a loss of loved one, a painful illness, or an […]

Set Your Mind

Your focus changes everything. If you focus on your problems, you will become overwhelmed by your problems. You will worry. You will become stressed. Your attitude will darken. When you focus on Christ, you realize for Whom you live and you are reminded of His Word. Focusing on Jesus helps you to live by Christ, […]

Food that Sticks

In life we spend a lot of time in the here and now. We see things from a temporal scope rather than an eternal scope. God has a different time scheme than us. We consider our lives here on earth as our lives. Even when we say we have accepted Jesus and will have eternal […]

Plain and Simple

I very much enjoy having a plain and simple life. There was a time when I wanted to show off what I had because that is how the world works. You buy things. You tell people what you bought. You shove it right in their face because then you look good. But really, are you […]

A Priceless Inheritance

Inheritance is a word that is tossed around often. Some people work hard to leave a large financial inheritance to their children. Some people spend a lot of time teaching their children so that their inheritance is a great moral legacy. Some people are “lucky” to receive an inheritance that will help them out of […]

Salty Grain

There were different offerings given to the Lord including the Grain Offering. The Grain Offering was to show honor to God. Recently when I was reading Leviticus 2, I read about what was involved with the Grain Offering. There was choice flour, olive oil, and frankincense. But there was something else. Something else was added […]

Different Perspectives

Despite wearing suntan lotion, my daughter got sunburn. While walking through the parking lot, we were side-by-side heading toward the car. Halfway to our destination, a gentleman began to back up out of his parking spot without looking around in our direction to see if anyone was walking behind him. I forgot about my daughter’s […]

Collecting Bones

This morning I gave my dog a bone and I found that rather than eating it, he took it over to his special area of the room and lined it up with a few other bones he had collected. If he could talk, I think he would have been boastful of his nice collection. Of […]

A Love That Lasts “Forever”

I was driving down the road the other day, when a song started playing that really caught my attention. I heard the song many time before; however, this time I saw it differently. The song, “Forever,” by rising Country Singer-Songwriter Danielle Lowe, appears on her recent debut album, “Off Limits.” The song is a love […]
