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...

Don't Run Away

"Why would you want to save ME?!” Ever ask that question of Jesus?  You have heard the story before:  Jesus came to save sinners.  Jesus died on the cross to take away sins.  Jesus gave up his life so that I will have life.  But, “why would you want to save ME, Jesus?!” Maybe that feeling came after, once again, drinking one too many.  Maybe it came after that curse word flew from your mouth instead of words of love.  Maybe it...

God's Final Emotion - Tears of Joy!

Bible Trivia time. What is the shortest passage in the Bible (in English)?  Did you guess John 11:35?  Jesus wept.  His friend Lazarus had just died.  Jesus was caught up with much emotion.  He could take it no more…so he wept.  Not cried; not “shed a tear” – Jesus WEPT! Do you think he has that much emotion over all his family members when they pass away? Bible Trivia time again – What happened to Moses at the end of his...

God Hears You

  Have you ever felt small?  Unimportant?  Insignificant? If you know me, then you know I like to vacation near the ocean.  For me, there is just something so relaxing to hear the waves gently crash against the shore.  I don’t believe I could ever get sick of that sound. But, I have also been to other parts of the country.  I have stood on the top(ish) of a 14,000-foot mountain in Colorado.  I have gone to the edge of the Grand Canyon looking...

Patiently Waiting for the Lord

Are you a patient person?  Sadly, I am not…at least I don’t feel like I am.  No, I am not that person who honks the horn the very second the light turns green, but I feel like I am impatient more often than not. How about you?  Do you get upset when the item you ordered online takes two days to get to you instead of just one?  Are you fuming a little when someone said they would come at 9:00 only to arrive at 9:05?  Have you ever gotten angry with...

Jesus is ALWAYS the Answer!

Where were you 17 years ago today?  I was about to ask my catechism class that question yesterday but I realized the answer…they were not born yet! (man, I am old!).  How about you…where were you 17 years ago today - September 12, 2001?  No, that is not a typo.  I did not mean to ask where you were on September 11, 2001.  I did mean to ask…where were you the day after all the planes crashed and it felt like the world was coming to an end? I...

Run the Race...with Jesus!

One day when God brings me home to heaven, I want to spend some time talking with those who wrote the bible.  Obviously, the bible is God’s Word, so I want to spend some time with God.  But, I want to talk with those who God chose to write the bible.  Men like Paul and Peter and John all wrote parts of the bible. But one of the books in the bible we don’t know the author is Hebrews. I was recently reading a part of Hebrews and when I get to heaven, not only do...

Never...a Good Thing??

  Have you ever felt alone?  There is a television show I like to watch.  It is called "Alone."  They take 10 contestants and put them in a location where they are all alone.  No camera crew; no one else with you.  They get dropped off and need to survive as long as they can because there is no time limit.  Last one surviving wins.  I believe they can take a few items with them, but that is it.  They are responsible to film...

Lord, Save Me!

Do you ever feel like you are sinking? Let’s face it…living in this world is not always easy.  I could go into the details of the problems of the world which all stem from sin, but I don’t want to do that for this blog. Instead, I just want to think about how living in the world AS A CHRISTIAN is not always easy.  Again, I don’t want to concentrate on the problems which come from the sinful world which persecutes Christians.  I want to just talk...
