Mound Visits, 8/19/16

  Agnostics, seekers and believers all ask questions about God. If all of the questions could be answered it would put us on the same level with God…man wants that, but it will never happen. One question I hear sometimes is “If Jesus is ‘the way, the truth and the life’ (John 14:6) what about […]

  This has always been a hard discipline for me, but I know it to be true…the busier I get, the  more I should pray. When we become physically and mentally drained, it’s easy to become spirituality drained as well. Spiritual nourishment comes from God’s Word and with prayer. No Bible verses today, but instead two […]

  If you’re past mistakes are robbing you of your joy, confess them once and for all to Christ who has already paid the price for them!  Then, forget them…God has! He has cast them as far as the east is to the west, to remember them no more.” Jesus wants you to walk in peace […]

When our children grew older and “left the nest,” it became incredibly gratifying when they give us a call or make a visit. Because of our great love for our children, we love hearing from them! God’s capacity to love is much greater than ours. So, He receives more joy when hearing from us than […]

God has used 2 Corinthians 5:21 to encourage me in faith and to help me be thankful for God’s great Gift to us. “God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” This is an overwhelming message! Christ took our sins […]

C.S. Lewis once said, “A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.” An even wiser man said, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before the fall” Proverbs 16::18 Let’s all “look up” and be thankful […]

  Sometimes, God says “no” to our request when we pray. Many times “no” is a far greater answer. God has a better plan than ours. When Jesus was agonizing in prayer before His betrayal and crucifixion, He prayed, “Abba, Father, everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I […]

  As you spend time with family (or away from them), or as you have important meetings or unique challenges, know that God is always with you. We can trust His strength. He cares about every detail of your life because He loves you. Before you make plans, address problems large or small or go […]
