What Does it Mean When I Say I’m A Christian?

Being a Christian means I carry the name of my Savior Jesus Christ whose birth we celebrate in December. He saved me, but what did He save me from? An eternity without Him. Being a Christian doesn’t mean following a set of rules or rituals. It doesn’t require us to do a certain number of […]

What Do You Treasure?

  What happens when we lose something so valuable, we grieve over it. Something material which can never be replaced? I pray we may say with Job , “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him.” My husband and I lived in Germany for three years while he served in the army. I […]

Where Will You Spend Eternity

What’s Next After This? Have you ever asked someone this question: if you die tonight, where will you spend eternity? Generally, I get one of two answers. I’m a good person. I’ll go to Heaven. Or I hope I’ll go to Heaven. These two answers frustrate me because neither reflect God’s word. Let’s take a […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

God’s Love Is the Best Valentine You Can Receive “God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16.” If you’ve been a Christian for a while, you’ve heard this verse. But have you really pondered what it means? In […]

Scripture Comes Alive: A Devotional Within a Devotion

I love the Bible app on my phone because there is an abundance of devotionals available. https://www.bible.com/ For example, some of the devotionals can be found under categories such as peace, joy, love, anxiety, healing, anger, hope, depression, and on and on. I chose the topic joy and have learned so much. With the wealth […]

A Phone Call to God

A Phone Call to God Ring. Ring. “Hello. You’ve reached Jeremiah 33:3 and will be connected immediately with no waiting time to speak to God.” “Yes.” I lowered my fist in a victory signal. “Hello, God.” “Good morning, my daughter. I love you, today.” “I love you, too, Lord. I was reading Ephesians 6:14 today […]

Heavenly Perspective – Hope for the New Year

It’s so easy to get bogged down by daily concerns and I dare say … worry. I’ve got bills to pay, and I don’t want to admit I’m now living in an aging body. Sometimes I have to go to God’s word and get a better perspective. I couldn’t say this any better than Paul. […]

Thanking God

Thanking God I’m grateful this year for all my blessings. There are many. God’s direction in my life, good health, the opportunity to write stories that glorify Him, a changed life which has no resemblance to the life I led when I was twenty, peace that dwells in my heart, wonderful family members. But as […]
