Jesus said in John 16: 33, “33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”He did not say, we MIGHT have trouble. He said we WILL. This world we live in is full of junk and people who do not care. Sometimes, our …

Mrs. Laurel’s message at church last night really hit home with me. We have been talking about the first “church” in Acts. Jesus told His followers in Acts 1: 8, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends …

You know, as old as I am, you would think I would know better. However,  in my humanity, I make mistakes. The problem is, I have made some of the same mistakes more than once. Thankfully, God is a God of forgiveness and no condemnation. Romans 8:1& 2 says, “Therefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, …

Someone close to me uses this phrase to get through the rough spots in life.  I thought this was in a Scripture in the Bible, but I could not find it. The Jewish people think that King Solomon was the first person to say it. Abraham Lincoln gave a historical account of this phrase in a speech he made to …

I am still reading the book about Vincent Van Gogh. It turns out that his dad was a Pastor! I did not realize that. So, Vincent did know about the Lord. He grew up knowing about God, but I can not help but wonder if he knew how much he was loved.Remember that day I wrote about our DNA and …

If you have been reading my blog for long, you know that I am a huge Vincent Van Gogh fan. I just love his work! I love swirls, and some of his paintings not only have them, but the paint just seems to move. Someone sweetly gave me a book about Van Gogh yesterday. I knew most of his story, but …

We are all familiar with the DNA structure that makes us up as humans. It is nearly the same in every person, but we have different genetic make ups that cause us to be who we are. I have brown hair and blue eyes. My DNA is what makes me look like I do. My children are all different. Two …

I am going to attempt to tell you about something that happened to me, and how God used it to remind me of our relationship. Bear with me. I am NOT a computer guru. I have a desktop computer. I think a lightening storm hit one night last year and somehow erased a driver that was needed to talk to …

Some of this will be a continual of my Pastor’s message.  We should want to live in who we are. Sometimes we desire the wrong things and take lame substitutes for what God wants for us.(Sex, drugs, food, shopping, alcohol… are a few that come to my mind.)Here are just a few of God’s promises, take a minute and look …

My Pastor is still teaching on our Identity. Yesterday’s message really hit home for me in a few ways. I want to share a Scripture and define the words like he did. I hope this makes sense to you like it did to me.2 Peter 1: 2 & 3, says, “3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a …
