Flowery Hand Soap

I am very particular about things. Some say I have OCD, but the doctor said it is only OCD tendencies. When it comes to scents, I like to stick with vanilla and honey or like ocean mists. Typically, the flowery scents attack my nose. Today I asked my daughter to pick out two hand soaps. […]

Get Going

There are moments in life when I need to be given a swift kick to get going. Remember Moses making excuses again and again when God called him to lead the people out of Egypt? Well Moses isn’t the only one who knows how to drag feet. I’m sure we all have been there; my […]

Paid Them No Mind

Many people will speak poorly about you. You cannot get through life with everyone liking you and with everyone treating you well. When someone is saying things about you, there are moments when it is best to pay them no mind. There are instances when the devil is trying to get to you through their […]

Ebed-melech

I think Ebed-melech was someone I would love to have for a neighbor. The Lord rewarded him for trusting him. In Jeremiah 38, we read about how Jeremiah was tossed into a cistern. A lot of the time when we don’t like what we hear, we ignore or turn away. These people tossed Jeremiah into […]

Foolish Disguise

Every time I read today’s verse, I ask myself why Jehoshaphat would even go with Ahab into the battle with this request. Ahab decides to disguise himself so he would not be recognized. Yet he tells Jehoshaphat to wear the royal robes so everyone can tell that he is the king. Something happens though—things do […]

When they asked the Lord where he was, the Lord pointed out that he was “hiding among the baggage.” He was hiding. Other versions say he had “hidden himself among the supplies.” Either […]

Whom I Have Believed

There is one word in this verse that sticks out to me. Paul wrote, “Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know WHOM I have believed.” Whom I have believed. Whom. Jesus Christ. I have a degree in Christian Ministry. I have quite a collection of commentaries, dictionaries, and other books for biblical […]

He is Not Finished Yet

“He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is!” – Deuteronomy 32:4 [NLT] When I was getting myself ready, my dog Max was awaiting outside the door for me. I find it interesting that […]

Do This Or Else

“As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.” – Daniel 3:5-6 [NIV] […]
