What Is Up with Angels?

July 17, 2023

There are many mysteries regarding angels, so the best thing to do is to go to the scriptures to see what is up with angels. We are often told that everyone has a guardian angel. Actually, that is not true. The scriptures do teach that all those that fear the Lord have angels (as in […]

Be Angry But…

July 10, 2023

We have all had those moments when we have faced a sudden disappointment and there it is welling up within us, ANGER. It could even be righteous indignation over a disrespect for God and or others.

The One Thing

July 3, 2023

There’s a scene from the movie “City Slickers” in which the real cowboy, Curley, has some advice for the would-be city slicker cowboys who seemed to be living lives of confusion without being dedicated to anything. Curley just held up his index finger and told the boys they needed to learn this lesson. When pressed […]

Kicking The Can

There’s an expression for procrastinating called, “kicking the can.” Just picture a person walking down the street and seeing a can, of which content is of great worth.

The Heavy Weight Of Busyness

June 19, 2023

People today are “so busy.” In face people are “so busy” as to the neglect of personal health, family relationships, and even worse to the neglect of fellowship with God.

God, on the other hand, has made promises and with His promises there is power because He made the promise. Isaiah 46:9–11 (ESV) — 9 remember the former things of old; for I […]

Let’s face it, our plethora of time saving devices have given more time to fill, which only leads to weariness of mind and […]

The Key To Happiness

May 29, 2023

Everybody wants to be happy, so it makes sense that there are a plethora of articles and books with a similar title as this one. Happiness is defined by the Oxford dictionary as “the state of feeling or showing pleasure or contentment.” The definition is somewhat personal because what makes one person happy may not […]

Freedom From Fear

May 22, 2023

Wouldn’t it be great to be free from all fear? We know that fear of any sort cripples as it holds us captive from doing or experiencing what we desire. Stop and think about the hold fear has on you and how you would love to be free from that fear, albeit the fear of […]

Digging Out The Root Of Bitterness

May 15, 2023

There are many plants that build a network of roots below the surface so that when you feel you have killed the pesky plant it finds a way of coming back, often in new places. If left alone these plants will take over a garden, and eventually the yard and beyond. The only way to […]
