Choosing Perfect Peace

Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Psalm 43:5a, NASB Have you all recently heard the Casting Crowns song, “Oh my soul”? The song is so beautiful and so biblical. Why are we distressed? Our fear will have to face the God we know and He will […]

Obedience

How easy is obedience?  We know what we are supposed to do and yet because of selfishness, fear, apathy, or even lack of faith, we choose to do just the opposite.  I get so very frustrated at my 3 year old sometimes.  She knows what is right and wrong.  She understands that mommy and daddy […]

Giving Glory to God

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! Think of a time when something great has happened, or you’ve accomplished an impossible task. Did you pat your back and say, “Go me! I just did this great thing! I did it all by myself!”? I have done this more times than I can count. I love to take the credit […]

Be Still

Posted on behalf of Lisa Moody: My life has been total chaos lately. That seems to be a recurring theme for me. In the last couple of months, my best friend’s teenage daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy after her first seizure occurred while in the airport in Orlando. That same friend’s husband has been passing […]

Tell Them to Duck!

When I told my preacher husband that I thought I’d write a short blog with Pastor’s Wives in mind, this was what he said: “Tell them to duck, because the bullets are coming.” And after the laughter stopped, I knew he was right. We’ve had plenty of bullets of all different kinds fired at us […]

The Struggle is Real

In fact here in 2 Corinthians Chapter 11 we are given some insights to his struggle: -Five times the Jews gave him thirty-nine lashes -Three times he was beaten with rods -He was stoned once -Three times shipwrecked -Endured […]

We Are Comforters

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 I spent 2 days last weekend high […]

Praise for Prayer

I love it when someone tells me that they are praying for me. What a gift that is! It causes me to look for God, to expect Him to move. To go about my day anticipating His goodness and to wonder how He will bring it all about. And it reminds me to be thankful […]

The Voices in Our Heads

·         I’m not equipped or skilled enough to do that! ·         The ‘in’ crowd never wants to invite me in. ·         I’m not bold enough or have an outgoing personality. ·         My marriage will never look like hers. ·         Why do I feel so unwanted in my own family? ·         Why don’t my kids look […]

Live the Truth Intentionally…Even in the Smallest of Ways

Hi friends! Happy June! I’ve had this small thing on my mind lately.  It’s small in the sense that I could have easily dismissed it and perhaps missed a golden opportunity to lift up the name of Jesus to a complete and total stranger. As I was reading in my NEW “She Reads Truth” Bible, […]
