August 10, 2020

We prepare for whatever we think is important. Therefore, the converse is also true: if we haven’t prepared for something it’s a good indicator we didn’t think it to be that important. Amos 4:12 (ESV) — 12 “Therefore thus I will do to you, O Israel; because I will do this to you, prepare to […]

The Gift Of Time

There is something in which we are all created equal no matter where we live, no matter what our background; we all have twenty-four hours a day, or 168 hours a week. Time is the great equalizing factor. Even though we all have the same amount of time, there are those who make the most […]

The Kinked Hose

June 22, 2020

Washing the car or watering plants may not be the most challenging activity, but it can be when you have a hose that won’t cooperate. Picture yourself turning the water pressure on and the hose looks like it should carry the water to the end, but what should be a continuous flow is only a […]

Trusting God Or Playing Yo-yo

June 15, 2020

Have you ever lost sleep over a situation because you were just filled with worry? Most of the things we worry about will never happen. We can’t change the past and worrying about the future only causes us to miss the present. So why do we worry? It’s an attempt to control the uncontrollable.  But […]
