We all go through times of suffering and there are many kinds of suffering…physical pain, broken relationships, separation from loved ones and grief. God doesn’t always prevent storms in our life, but He will walk with us through them. “God steps into the suffering with us, and He takes it on himself, and He walks […]

Sometimes when it’s dark, we need to look inside for the light. “All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming.” Helen Keller “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”(1 John […]

I have talked to several people who have been deeply hurt by a church or a Christian. It should never happen, but people are fallible. People, even church leaders, make mistakes because they are human, or perhaps even misguided. We are all imperfect, but God loves you with a perfect love. “You may have been […]

I’m not going to tell you that it’s easy. And, I’m not going to tell you that I’ve always fully grasped this concept. But, when we suffer, instead of asking “when will I get out of this suffering?” Ask instead,“Lord, what will I get out it this suffering?” Suffering is sometimes horrendous, but God does […]

Paul David Tripp once said, “His love for you is never a result of your character; it is a clear demonstration of His.” “Grace teaches us that God loves because of who God is, not because of who we are.”(Phillip Brooks) “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not […]

Last Friday, my 12 year old grandson wanted to interview me on video for a class project. The questions centered around my testimony, my favorite Bible verse and how this has shaped me into who I am today. What a blessing it was to have this special opportunity to share my story with one of […]

GOOD FRIDAY Even while gasping for breath, the blood flowing out of His body and the tortuous pain He suffered, Jesus said this to a remorseful thief and sinner, “This day you will be with me in Paradise.” His grace and His love are truly amazing… Acceptance and gratitude our inadequate but only response. “We […]

If we profess faith in Christ, people observe us…the effort we give, the way we treat others (especially those closest to us), the words we speak, the quality of our work and the attitude of our hearts. Be excellent in all you do. “The Christian shoemaker does his duty not by putting little crosses on […]
