Is NOW YOUR Time?

One of my favorite verses in all of Scripture is Esther 4:14. It brings into living color, for me, one of God’s most marvelous and life-altering truths: That our God willingly intervenes in the events of our lives to bring about His divine plane and purpose. And…that this divine intervention cannot only impact our individual lives but can also…

The Seasons of Life

Ecclesiastes 3:1 – “There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.” It is usually in looking back over the events of our lives that we can begin to understand God’s plan and purpose regarding our circumstances. At least for me, I can recall many times when I just couldn’t fathom…

But God

These are two of the most life-changing words in all of Scripture!  They are “a redirection towards what we are able to accomplish as we lean into His strength, His guidance, His faithfulness and His goodness”.

Under Construction

I don’t know about you but there are times when I feel that I am such a disappointment to the Lord.  I get up each morning with a desire to please Him, to let my light so shine and to show more concern and compassion to those around me – to be less judgmental and critical.  My days usually…

Philippians 1:13-14 – “but one thing I do; forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead; I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” If anyone had reason to be unable to let go of his past, it was Paul. He persecuted the church, had many…

Hebrews 11:6 – “And without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for the one who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He proves to be the One who rewards those who seek Him.” I was looking through my newsfeed on Facebook and came across a post from a Christian friend which read: What if?…

The Reality Behind Nonprofits

When people hear the word nonprofit I am sure they have images of Birkenstocks, long hair, and tie dye shirts. That may have been the case in the past, but nowadays it is just ordinary people who are sick and tired of complaining about the problems of the world and decided to roll up their sleeves and do something…

When Will It End?????

How much longer?  Will things ever turn the corner?  These are questions we have all been asking ourselves during the past year and a half.  This pandemic has brought both heartache and hardship into our lives.  Thousands of our fellow Americans have died.  Our nation’s children have greatly suffered by having to “attend school” sitting in front of a…

A Faith-Filled Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day is almost upon us.  At this time of year, we are reminded to be grateful for all God’s blessings – the gifts of home and hearth, family, friends, and God’s never-ending provision. But this year, we are admonished to resist “gathering together to ask the Lord’s blessing” (a line from a favorite hymn).  We are partially locked…
