The Corona Virus

The Corona Virus Lives have drastically changed since the advent of the corona virus. You only have to go to Walmart, Costco, or Sam’s Club to buy toilet paper, bottled water, cleaning supplies, etc. to witness the ramifications for our society. “Don’t leave your house and if you do, don’t touch surfaces outside your home.” […]

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 […]

Prayers for Salvation For Others

I like to take time in the morning to read the Word and spend time with the Lord. Then I pray for friends and family. Sometimes, I’m not sure if they are following the Lord, so I reinforce my prayer with 1 Timothy 2:4. “The Lord wants all people to be saved and to come […]

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 […]

What Were You Thinking?

What Were You Thinking? James 4:7 says “Submit yourselves therefore to God.” Our choices, our words, our activities, our relationships. (I’m still working on all of this.) But for me thoughts are the hardest to surrender to the Lord. The Bible offers help. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is […]

Trusting in God Despite Our Circumstances

Trusting in God Despite the Circumstances Habakkuk 3:17-19 is one of my favorite scriptures. The verses depict the prophet’s faith in the Lord despite his material circumstances. I think it would be interesting to put this into modern day language. Here’s the original. Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why Do I Worship Him

I gazed at the cloudy sky and pondered the question. A simple question yet profound. Why? I worship Him because He created me and gave me eternal life. I had a beginning, but He didn’t. He’s always been. He’s the great I am. He lives in unapproachable light. I worship Him because He’s perfect. I […]
