Why Prayers Sometimes Go Unanswered

Matthew 17:14-20 A State of Despair 14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16 And I brought […]

Why and How I know that I know

I will not tell you that in 21 years of salvation I have not ever doubted my salvation. I would doubt that very many Christians could say that. It’s our nature to doubt. Thomas didn’t have the market cornered on it. But what I can say, it that the Holy Spirit did not allow me […]

He knows my Limitations

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Probably one of the most misused verses to date in my life. Yes, I know there are many, […]

What to eat when you’re hurting

Have you ever wondered which hurts worst: Saying something you wish you’d never said or saying nothing and wishing you had? It’s tough. And it’s one of the millions of problems God understands. Now if only I could understand. When you’re a talker, and I am, silence isn’t necessarily golden. I can feel the Spirit […]

If Jesus Coached Little League

Let me begin this blog by saying I’m a musician, not an athlete; so my view of sports is from the sideline as an encourager. But that doesn’t prevent me from having an opinion on the matter and being that what I’m writing about isn’t really about sports at all, I do consider myself somewhat […]

I’ve come to appreciate the weird

How easy it is to fall into the mundaneness of life. We are creatures of habit and routines that become the accepted way of our day and anything outside that realm upsets the apple cart, or the wheat cart as related to today’s scripture. I’m one who’s more apt to be anything but the norm […]

Chick Pic of the Day

I’m starting a new post for 2016, posting a “Chick Pic of the Day”  for your viewing pleasure. 🙂 Hope it  encourages your day! My husband David is super excited about this find. Kind of a belated Christmas present to himself. His goal is to restore her back to her days of glory, as for […]

See a need, fill a need Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. The world is certainly filled with people in need, and so is the church house. The bible is clear that it is the responsibility believers […]

Purple Lizards and Christ’s Return

There was a time when I sang in another Bluegrass band that one of our most requested songs was “Matthew 24”. A song about the coming of the Lord and our need to be ready. Oh it was a beloved song, but the message in reality is not readily accepted. Nobody wants to hear about […]
