We have some people in the community of believers, who desire to follow the
law, even though they are saved. They observe traditions that were Jewish,
because they want to be closer to the religion of Jesus, yet, the traditions
may become what we live by. Often times,...
I need to write to a group of people who are suffering in silence, and the
suffering I am referring to is the suffering of rebellion and ignorance. I
feel the need to write to all of you who are of the groups known as LGBTQ.
I would also ask that those of the faith to...
I once walked into the office of a friend, and found him crying. He was
distraught over his thoughts of what a poor example of Christ he was, and
this was killing him. We talked for awhile, and although I don't believe I
could do much to help, I noticed some things i...
I am thankful today that our God is such a loving and forgiving God. I know
that in many ways, I am not worthy of forgiveness, but I have come to
realize that He knows that too, but my being good enough is not the reason
He forgives, otherwise there is no hope for me,...
Today I am thankful for the honor of fighting the good fight. I have been
blessed with being a warrior (combat Corpsman), of serving others with
medical treatment, while serving my country. I am thankful for the strength
to be able to do that, even with almost losing...
Today I am thankful for the joy that our Lord puts in my heart. It's not

my character, the fibers of my being. It's...
In this start of a week leading up to the day we celebrate our thanksgiving,
I want to offer a few daily thoughts on the things I am thankful for.
Thanksgiving was started early on, in the reformation, as a holy day of
giving thanks for the harvest. It seems to have st...
I have always felt that I want to be in the Lord's will, and that His
direction is more important to me than my direction. But I am a planner! I
love it when a plan comes together, and I feel like I have accomplished
something when the plan that has been made comes to...
I couldn't sleep very well last night, so I listened to music, which usually
helps me settle in. I heard a song by Matt Redman, that I love, but the
words have continued on in my mind, and I have been meditating on this great
grace that God has poured out on us. Part...
Do some people just rub you the wrong way? You know the type whose arrogance
and loudness just drive you to want to leave the building? Yet, we are
called to be forgiving people when we are wronged by another. We are not to
use the same attitude to others as they use...
