    What’s love got to do with it?

    Tina turner said, what’s love got to do with it? Well Tina, Everything! Love never fails. “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13  A little boy went to his mother with a list.  He wrote of all the things he had done that day, and for each thing he did he requested payment. It went something like this: I cleaned my room, so you owe me $1.00 I got excellent grades on my report card so you owe me $2.00 I helped wash the dishes so you owe me $1.00 In total you owe me $4.00 The…

    Praying For Paris

    “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” – John 10:10 I was horrified to hear on the news that Paris had been the victim of a terrorist attack. My first thought was, Isis. This world is so full of evil, and corruptness. Not to say that there isn’t any good in the world, but it’s so evident every time I turn on the news what we are dealing with.  A lot of people want to blame God, because He isn’t evidently stepping in. But what do you…

    Living Water

    “Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.” – John 7:38 A friend of mine contacted me for prayer when her daughter took to a spiking fever, after she rushed her to the hospital. Seeing your own child sick has to be the worse thing a parent can endure, and can certainly spark a sense of fear. I thought of rushing over there to lay my hands on her ailing child, and to be there for her; however, decided for right at the moment, my proximity doesn’t affect what God can do. I simply stopped all…

    Mr Big

     “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” – Jeremiah 32:17 Mr Big is one of the largest chocolate bars produced by Cad-bury.  When I’m perusing the chocolate aisles I see tons of chocolate bars I could choose from; however, I tend to go for the biggest bar I can find, because I know if I choose the smaller of the bunch, I will go in search of more junk food to curb my chocolate craving. “God is a big bully sitting on an anthill with a magnifying glass, and I’m the ant. He could fix…

    The Constant Gardener

    “Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.  The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” – Genesis 2:8-9 One of the oldest professions in the world is Gardening.  Without gardening we wouldn’t have the beautiful flowers and plants to grace our living space with, and perhaps farmers wouldn’t know how to grow crops.  The Garden of Eden was created…

    The Good Part

    ” Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:2 God came to the earth robed in flesh because He saw the Joy that was lacking in our lives, and saw a way to fix it.  That Joy comes from knowing and having a relationship with God.  Sin had caused division and separation; however, Jesus created the bridge back to God. This life can cause us so much anxiety, and stress.  One in three people has a mental illness,…

    Higher Ground

    “Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord.” – 2 Kings 19:14 We all go through highs and lows in life, and often times it can debilitate us to the point, where we look down and can’t move forward; we are in a bound up state.  In the bible Hezekiah received some pretty bad news in the form of a letter.  I have at times received letters, bills and different things that can cause some form of anxiety, but with every problem presented there must be a solution.  We often times will…

    Act of Love

    “‘On that day,’ declares the LORD Almighty, ‘I will take you, my servant Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you,’ declares the LORD Almighty.” – Haggai 2:23 When one is to be married there is an act of love.  After a relationship has been founded, a proposal is given, an acceptance is needed, and a commitment is put into place.  In our culture this is signified by a ring.  It is a covenant of an everlasting commitment.  Wikipedia states that a signet ring is a ring with a seal set into it, typically by leaving an…

    Love Song

    Underneath a darkened sky, and everything around me fades.  I hear your voice sweet by and by, as I hearken the sounds of Amazing Grace. You carry me through shadows of doubt. put songs in my heart to sing. You breathe life into the darkest of hours; watch me fly as you grant me wings. Lost in the wilderness, you lead me home; with open arms, amidst the throne. Beyond the cross into the blue; colors of love, in every hue. Whatever Lord you ask of me, You’ll surely give me strength to succeed. Now, always, and forever true; My life, my heart, and my song for you.
