Precious to Me

Everyone has something that they deem as precious. Parents see their children as precious. Some people are amazed by different pieces of art and would deem the pieces to be precious. We have precious items behind glass, locked up in a safe, or even placed in museums. Each person has a different opinion as to […]

Uncontained Joy

When you think of uncontained, what do you imagine? I think back to the unrestrained flood waters after the torrential downpours of Hurricane Sandy. I picture the uncontrolled water shooting out from the burst pipe during the one frigid winter I forgot the turn off the outside water line. I remember the uncontained pool water […]

Immeasurable

“Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure His greatness.” No one can measure His greatness. It’s immeasurable. We toss around a lot of words. Awesome. Great. Wonderful. We use these words to describe things, and sometimes in doing so, we diminish the actual meaning of the word. God […]

Be Sure to Praise

When we are blessed, it is sometimes hard to remember the Source of the blessing. The Bible tells us, “When you have eaten your fill, be sure to praise the LORD your God.” We are reminded to be careful. It is so easy while we are in our time of “plenty” that we “forget the […]

Burst Out in Songs

I love music and I love to sing. The problem is no one really enjoys hearing the sweet melodies I sing. I haven’t figured out how to sing in the right keys. Even so, God loves to hear me sing. He loves to hear you sing too! The Psalms reference singing and praising God often. […]

Aaron stood between the dead and the living with the incense burning to purify the people. This incense was to make the people right with the Lord. He stood between them and the plague stopped. […]

Colossians Study: Realities of Heaven

[Colossians 3:1-4] He is your life So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around […]

Stretch Outline

You are not where you are supposed to be Each of you is meant to be somewhere else Yes, it’s true. God has made you for so much more. How do you get there? STRETCH!! You cannot GROW unless you are STRETCHED! No Easy Road God promised He would be with you, not that it […]

In One Voice

I love to take an early morning walk with Max; the earliest the better. When the sun is first coming up and there is still dew on the grass, there is a great peace that embraces you. The sweet melody of birds chirping is so beautiful. This morning I heard a chorus of different birds […]
