    He is Risen!

    “It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”When he had said this, he breathed his last. Luke 23:44-46 A darkness may have come over the land at one time, and may still seem that way at times, but be assured that He has risen! He is still alive and powerful today! No matter what storm you face, Jesus is there in the midst, shining a light ready to help you fight…

    Windows of Opportunity

    And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 There comes a time in our lives when we are faced with windows of opportunity. Usually they appear during a time of crisis, or a moment of decision. There are also windows of testing, and windows of blessing. When Noah was asked to build the ark, it was his window of opportunity.…

    Life Support

    “So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.” Romans 12:5 (KJV) Today after church a man we all held dear was in a car accident with his wife and friend. This friend had decided to come back to church with him, a week after he was saved. At the age of 76 he gave his heart to God. Before church was out the pastor had us pray with his new friend, almost with a sense of urgency. I figured as a new christian of course that would make sense. Little did we know what was about to occur. I got a text…

    Smoke and Mirrors

    And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Romans 13:11 I used to play baseball as a child, and I had the tendency to get easily distracted during a game. Nevertheless, I had a place on the team and a task to carry out. God has put us into specific positions in the body of Christ for such a time as this. If we allow ourselves to get distracted, we risk not completing our task, and we hold everyone else up in the process. I you are on third…

Unshaken “Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.” – Psalm 91:6 I hate to sleep in a room that is too warm.  I decided to open my window one night to let some fresh air in.  My dog likes to sleep right…

    This Old House

     “For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.” – 2 Corinthians 5:1 (NIV) I got married in August of last year and moved to a house about a half hour away from where I lived. It was not my first choice, since it was so far out, but also because I knew this house was old and needed a lot work. I judged it because of its imperfections much like a person looks in the mirror and judges their flaws. It wasn’t until I dared to stop looking and dwelling on…

    Broken Records

    Ever notice how some people feel the need to blast the music they are listening to.  I drove by someone who was blaring their music so loud… I cant ever understand it.  Can u not hear it good enough for yourself?  Or is the message behind the song so urgent that you need to force it on the rest of us? The bible says to travail and pray without ceasing.  (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) But be assured that God is not deaf to your cries.  He knows our hearts cry before we utter a single word.  I often hear from my fiance, i’m not a mind reader! As in, “Be specific.”…

    Vienna waits for you

    We all have a calling in life; one that is God given.  From the beginning of time we were born with a vision. God knew us while we were still in the womb.  (Jeremiah 1:5) We all work toward creating careers that we love, that will help us make a living; however, there is a true difference between work, and your vocation. An artisan is a skilled tradesman.  They use their hands to create.  When the work of your hand is guided by the father, learned from the father, and anointed by the father, you can never go wrong. I like to think that I am an artisan of the…

    Acts of God

    “David found favor with God and asked for the privilege of building a permanent Temple for the God of Jacob.  But it was Solomon who actually built it. However, the Most High doesn’t live in temples made by human hands. As the prophet says, ‘Heaven is my throne,and the earth is my footstool.  Could you build me a temple as good as that?’ asks the LORD.  ‘Could you build me such a resting place?  Didn’t my hands make both heaven and earth?’ – Acts 7:46-50 I awaken every morning, make a coffee, say a prayer and turn on the weather network.  I like to keep up with the news, and prepare myself…

    It Won’t Rain Always

     “Rejoice, you people of Jerusalem! Rejoice in the LORD your God! For the rain he sends demonstrates his faithfulness. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as the rains of spring.” – Joel 2:23 Rain rain go away, come again another day! Many see rain as an annoyance, sometimes myself included; however, rain is something of a miracle. Freezing rain…is another thing altogether. But, everything in nature is miraculous in my opinion. I read a post on Facebook the other day that said: “We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don’t believe…
