Do you wonder if Jesus is coming back soon?

Lately, I’ve found myself wondering if Jesus is coming back soon. Have you? Here are some things we know about the Second Coming of Christ— People will be going about their normal day-to-day stuff… getting married, partying, buying and selling, building, and planting gardens. (Luke 17:26-30) Many will reject Jesus. Wickedness will also be acceptedContinue reading “Do you wonder if Jesus is coming back soon?”

Chips, Salsa & a Picture of God

I sat trying to restrain myself from the bowl of chips and salsa when it happened. She poked my arm and looked up at me proclaiming, “THIS is a picture of God.” She was only four then, and proudly held up her crayon drawing– a large squiggly face with two odd-shaped, bulging eyes. Speechless, forContinue reading “Chips, Salsa & a Picture of God”

Why is that brother even in the story?

Have you wondered why the older brother is even in the story? It’s a curious story. A favorite really. If you’ve sat in church or heard a testimony you’re probably familiar with the Parable of the Prodigal Son. For years, I focused on the prodigal and the father running to Him. It’s a beautiful pictureContinue reading “Why is that brother even in the story?”

Do you ever feel like you do more than your fair share?

It had been one of those days. I had worked and worked and felt like others weren’t doing their share. I had been playing the pity party music in my head for quite some time when my mom mentioned that my daddy’s feet were hurting him again. She explained that every morning she washes hisContinue reading “Do you ever feel like you do more than your fair share?”

I needed to remember this again.

I needed to remember this again today. It has to be strange, curious, and honestly, a little absurd, for those who do not fear the Lord, to watch those who do, deal with things like CoVid, and even the craziness of our country, right now. What those, who do not fear the Lord, or perhapsContinue reading “I needed to remember this again.”

Will you be able to stand?

Right now, we are seeing the winds of hard days and our “cancel culture” blowing away those who aren’t planted with deep roots in biblical truth.

The happy, blessed person does not do some things but does do other things. She does not—Walk in the counsel of the ungodly,Stand in the path of sinnersSit in the seat of the scornful.

Get Used To Different!

The widely popular show, The Chosen, (I love it!) has a saying, “Get used to different”. People are buying out all the show’s shirts that say this. The point is, to emphasize, how, after Jesus comes into our lives, we are different. He changes us and things look different because of Him. When the worldContinue reading “Get Used To Different!”

SAVE the MEN!

Men.All day long they are being bashed. Just because they were born male, men seem to be taking a hit in our culture. As a wife, and a mom of sons, as a woman who loves my husband, my dad, my brother, my son-in-law, and my nephews, too, this makes me incredibly sad. For years,Continue reading “SAVE the MEN!”

a STRANGE passage and peace

For years, I had read this somewhat strange passage and wondered what it meant— “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it swept and putContinue reading “a STRANGE passage and peace”
