Seasoned Words

“Your speech should always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer each person.” ??Colossians? ?4:6? ?HCSB?? Recently, someone hurt me to my very core and I wanted to scream and shout ugly things at them so they would hurt too. But the Lord whispered this verse in my heart […]

A Stone’s Throw Away

Click here to read John 8 :1-6… As I read the story of the woman caught in adultery, I wondered what she must have been thinking.  Had she heard of “this” Jesus as she stood a stone’s throw away from impending death? Caught in the very act of adultery, she was taken to the temple and […]

Pack Light

In the next month, I have the privilege of flying to Las Vegas, Orlando and Puerta Vallarta.  Being the OCD-list maker-packing professional that I am, I have already begun my list of what I will need to pack.  I will be going the carry-on route for these trips, so I am trying to pack as […]

He Hears Your Voice

Psalm 116:1-2 (NLT) I love the Lord because He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because He bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! The theme for Psalm 116 is worshiping as a thankful response, not as a repayment for what God has done. (NLT Life Application […]

There is Peace in the Eye of the Hurricane

I just listened to a powerful reflection regarding the “Eye of the Hurricane” by Danita Harris, a news reporter who loves the Lord. Her message speaks volumes and something we all can take into consideration. She makes note that in the eye of the hurricane there is less wind; more peace. It is what surrounds […]

Roosters and Redemption

Recently, I had a conversation with my sons about what it means to deny Jesus.  My 11-year-old told my youngest the story of Peter denying Jesus the night Jesus was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane.  I think that is the image we think of: to deny Jesus means we blatantly say we don’t know […]

Is God Good ALL The Time?

I recently received some good news from our doctor about our current pregnancy that was quite the opposite of what the doctor had told us just 2 weeks prior.  The news clearly revealed God’s hand in performing a miraculous work.  Even the doctor was scratching his head at the findings. Because we are sharing our […]

Perfection?

We sometimes get so caught up in perfecting the presentation of our ministry, we lose focus on the purpose of it! How many times have we missed opportunities to minster while being consumed with perfecting how our message will be presented? What difference does it make how good it looks if we haven’t conveyed our message?
