When things don’t go as planned

Ever have one of those days when things didn’t go as planned? All of us have had small things go wrong in our lives. But, sometimes, it is bigger than burned toast and lost car keys. Sometimes, the world around you is falling apart.

God’s love and wisdom re-routes our lives

“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,” declares the Lord, “and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14.)

The Treasures of snow

As I sit here on yet another snow day I had a thought, “What does the Bible say about snow?” I was amazed to find there are over two dozen Bible verses about snow. And they just don’t mention that it snowed on a particular day.

Their God is their belly

“But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.” (James 3: 14 - 16).

BOO! Do Ghosts Exist?

We’ve all watched a scary ghost movie or told ghost stories. I loved watching Ghostbusters when I was a kid. Ghosts have been a central figure in entertainment for centuries.

Value your moments

I am not a morning person. I am up and about early because I have to be, but not pleasantly so…Taking my boys to school is an example. In a single parent home, I am charged with the duty of waking everyone up, getting baths, breakfasts, and whatever else, together. And it is never pretty. I yell and scream, threaten and cajole, and still barely make it on time.

Don’t settle in Haran

“Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot, son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. But when they came to Haran, they settled there. Terah lived 205 years, and he died in Haran.” - Genesis 11:31-32

Life by the Spirit

How does a Christian keep away from sin and grow in Christ? I place those two statements together because they belong together as simultaneous actions. In Galatians 5:16-26 Paul gives the answer. He begins by saying we should, “Live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature” (v. 16).
