Don't Just Stop at Fear!

What is your definition of “fear”?  I won’t make your eyes start to roll by telling you Webster’s Dictionary Definition of “fear.”  I know there are different definitions.  I know I have a proper amount of a “fear” of spiders. I won’t run into the other room if I see one.  But, my rule is…if they are in my domain, I have the right to kill them.  I don’t want them to harm me or my family. But...

It's Done!

What you are going to read is going to be difficult to do.  Some may even say it is impossible.  Some may not want to hear it. But, it is the absolute truth.  Ready? Before getting to that, a quick question – how many of you like to be micromanaged? It has happened to me several times.  It isn’t fun.  I remember one specific time.  I was working that summer doing remodeling work.  My main job was demolition. Sounds fun, right?  Some...

Prayer - NOT a Last Resort

How do you feel about prayer?  When do you pray? Is it something you do daily?  Do you begin and end each day with prayer?  Or, do you see prayer as a last resort?  Your team needs to make this field goal to win…time to pray! I spend an hour or so each month visiting with her.  Each time I come she is sitting in her chair.  Very rarely does she leave her room.  Her meals are brought to her.  For years she has found herself in a 10x10 (or so)...

Christmas Equation

Are you good at Math?  How about English?  Did you do well in that class?  Both of them have something in common – you take something and put it together with something else to make…well, something.  In Math, you take numbers and put them together to make an equation.  In English (or any language really) you take words and put them together to form a sentence. Today, I want to put both your Math and English skills together to make something...

Greatest Christmas Song EVER

Do you have a favorite song or hymn for the season of Christmas?  So many to choose from!  Which one would be the favorite?  To make the question (perhaps) easier, how about this – of the whole repertoire of songs we sing this time of year, which would make you the feel the most incomplete…if you didn’t get to sing it? I feel the greatest Christmas song ever sung is one…we will never sing. Read this paragraph and try to guess who I am talking...

Save Room - And Time - For Jesus

It is about that time again.  It is time for the annual checklist.  Do the lights still work?  Check!  Presents purchased? Check! Enough wrapping paper for those presents? Check! All the ingredients needed for those special cookies? Check! A place reserved for Jesus in your heart? Check??? There was a news article that completely repulsed me.  The State Capital of Illinois, trying to be open to everyone, allowed a satanic art sculpture to be put up next to all...

Significant in God's Eyes

  Let’s begin with a great riddle:  When is a mite worth more than all the money in the world?  Ok, maybe it isn’t a GREAT riddle. Thanksgiving has come and gone.  Next is Christmas.  Before that was Black Friday and Cyber Monday (and Tuesday, Wednesday…).  What is the point of those days?  Go big or go home!  Buy all these gifts (at a discount) then you will have a great Christmas!  Unless you get the newest TV or...

Encourage Each Other...TODAY!

I read a Bible verse today which I want to share with you: But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today.” (Hebrews 3:13). There was someone I knew.  A long time ago this person came to church.  They were faithful until, they were no longer faithful.  I just called to check on them and say I cared about them.  The next week they were in church.  They told me after church they had planned to end their life, until they heard my...

Don't Complain, Instead Pray!

Well, it is finally over.  “What is over?” you ask.  All those campaign commercials.  Every night, several times during each commercial break. Even in phone calls and text messages on my “no call list” phone.  But, they are finally over. I tried to stay up late last night to hear some of the results.  I got too tired. I had to wait until this morning to find out who are the ones in office now after yesterday’s vote. How are you...

No Fear in God's Love for You

Let’s begin our reading today with a little quiz.  Don’t worry, I will not grade your quiz.  I will give you a list of “fears” and see if you can figure out, if you have these fears, what it is you fear.  (If you watched “A Charlie Brown Christmas” you may know some of them thanks to Lucy).  Perhaps you could put your hand over the right portion, so you can guess first. Ok, here we...
