Bold and Unstoppable

How bold are you in proclaiming your faith? Our cat has suddenly begun crying out boldly in the middle of the night with a squall that jars everyone awake from an otherwise uneventful night. This has become an almost nightly occurrence. I finally discovered this cry comes from our bathroom which amplifies the volume. Why … Continue reading Bold and Unstoppable

No Longer Somewhere in the Middle

When tragedy strikes, one of three things happens with our faith. We tend to grow closer to God and our faith grows stronger; we turn from God blaming Him for allowing this and doubting His love and power; or we get caught somewhere in the middle. Honestly I have to admit that I was lost … Continue reading No Longer Somewhere in the Middle

This is Temporary

There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for awhile. These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold - and your faith is far more precious to a God … Continue reading This is Temporary

God Can Make a Way

Does it ever seem that the circumstances you face are so complicated that there is no way out? No matter which way you turn, you only see trouble.  In those moments, we have a tendency to focus on the problem rather than God and His power to conquer any obstacle.  When problems arise, we begin … Continue reading God Can Make a Way

Don’t Just Grin and Bear It

How many times have you found yourself in a situation in which it seemed the best response was to just grin and bear it? We often practice this technique in the small day to day annoyances so that we don't come across as rude or cranky. We do it when we aren't feeling well, and … Continue reading Don’t Just Grin and Bear It

He is Greater Than

Whatever you are facing, God has already given you the strength and faith needed. You may not always feel it, but you have what it takes to overcome because Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world!!  Satan is always at work around us. He works through our circumstances, … Continue reading He is Greater Than

Power of Prayer

Two weeks to live.  This is what doctors told a longtime, christian friend four weeks ago.  During those four weeks, I have found myself questioning how to even pray.  Since he is in a lot of pain, I have prayed for comfort.  But I have also found myself thinking God has a plan and obviously … Continue reading Power of Prayer

Faith in the Dark

As I sat reading, the lights flickered a time or two then went out completely.  The skies were clear that night.
