Just Do It

When you have the power to do something for someone who deserves it, the Bible tells us to just do it. Help them. Do not withhold good. It sounds like a grand idea, but yet we often fall short. We will tell people maybe later or we will totally dismiss the thought of helping at […]

Two Bones

View this post on Instagram I must hold on tightly to my bone so my sister doesn't steal it. #Labrador #mysisterisaklepto A post shared by Tania Gutekunst  (@taniagoody) on Mar 6, 2016 at 6:10pm PST Whenever I get to the pet store, I like to get a special treat for both of the pups. […]

One That Waters

Abraham was blessed to be a blessing. Oftentimes I find myself remembering this truth. We too are blessed to be a blessing. When we realize that we have been blessed by God, and that nothing is ours, but rather everything is His, then naturally this blessing should flow through our fingers and bless others. This […]

Your God Hands

There are people all over the world who need help. There are people right in front of you that need help. Proverbs tells us that we should “never walk away from someone who deserves help.” If there is a person before you, “your hand is God’s hand for that person.” Do you consider yourself the […]

The Lifesaver

This past week was a difficult one for me. My routine was missing in action. Sleep escaped me. My level of pain was at its highest. We were relocating. I was working every day, all day. It was draining. I was standing at work in pain, tired and dreading the end of my shift when […]

There are those who don’t hold back when they are racing or competing in sports. Not holding back means doing it all. […]

Lose Everything

There was a great visual demonstration that a pastor once shared with me, and it will always stick with me. It has to do with open hands. He said if you have your hands closed, you are unable to receive blessings. You hold on to what you have and deny yourself from receiving what God […]

Open Hands

“When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.” – Psalm 104:28 [NIV] If you have your hands closed, chances are it is going to be hard for you to grasp something. You have to open your hands up to have something placed […]

Simply Serve

    A fellow classmate brought up an interesting point today. He said that it was interesting that when John the Baptist was asked if he was Elijah, he denied it, but then Jesus said that John the Baptist was in fact Elijah. From this, he said that he felt that John the Baptist did not […]
