Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:34 not to worry about tomorrow. Could it that He wants us to embrace every opportunity possible today in order to really live life today? If we are constantly worrying about tomorrow we can’t live our best life today! We’re too distracted. No matter what you are facing today, love […]

Self evaluation time (I’m doing this, as well). The Apostle Paul gave very good advice to the church in Corinth in the beautiful letters we know as 1 Corinthians and 2 Corinthians. This morning, I zeroed in on two verses and that’s when I began to self evaluate. Be on your guard; stand firm in […]

When Elijah needed to hear from the Lord, he didn’t hear from Him in the wind, fire or earthquake. He heard from Him in a whisper. Most of us are saying that our lives are calmer now. This is a good time to listen for the whisper from God that will bring peace, rest and […]

Be patient with me as I indulge in a bit of state pride this morning. I’m watching the sun rise over a ridge of green with white plank fences lining a pasture. After all, Daniel Boone said, “Heaven must be a Kentucky kind of place.” But, like all states, Kentucky isn’t perfect. We have poverty, […]
