So What Shall the Two of Us Do?

Lamentations 3:26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord. Waiting is hard enough. Waiting quietly is out of my wheelhouse completely. I want the Lord to come quickly and fix my heartache and sorrow, and yet He has not. Perhaps you are there as well. […]

The Promise of Hope

Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; There is hope! I wanted to put that across every social media site this morning in big bold letters.

We Speak of Him

“Why on earth did You allow that to happen?” A question posed to God on a pretty regular basis with me; especially in the wake of the recent news reports. I don’t even watch the news but it’s so horrific that it’s a part of the conversation in every venue of life. So I’m pondering […]

Logic is so Overrated

In need of hope? Glory to God I need it every day! I wake up with Satan at the foot of my bed telling me that there is no hope. I should give up on the day before it gets started. The aches and pains in my body tend to raise their hand in agreement […]

Telling people about Jesus is my Superpower – what’s yours?

Yesterday afternoon I met with a small group of our Sunday School Teachers and the Pastor for an appreciation luncheon and kick-off to the fall programs. Sunday School Teachers are my heroes of the faith. As a young girl moving into a new community, it was a Sunday School Teacher who also worked for the […]
