    Are You Using the Right Umbrella for Protection?

    The word “umbrella” comes from the Latin root word, “umbra,” which means to shade or shadow. Ancient umbrellas were originally used to shade and protect you from the sun. From what I understand, the Chinese were the first to get creative and coat their paper parasols with lacquer and wax to make them waterproof. Whatever the facts may be, I am THANKFUL for the simple invention of an umbrella every time it rains! My umbrella has protected me from getting soaked on numerous occasions.  Unfortunately, my umbrella has also failed me a few times… On a couple of occasions, I left my umbrella at home even though I could plainly see…

    Pondering the Protection, Provision and Plan of God

    Guest post by Mary Sparks, pastor’s wife, Joplin, Missouri I’ve learned some lessons about Moses. As I have recently retired from working for the same company nearly 20 years, I have been thinking about God’s Protection and God’s Provision. Psalm 121:2 says, “My help cometh from the Lord; which made heaven and earth.” The mother of Moses must have had some slight fears when she learned that all the firstborn babies were to be killed. She must have immediately gone into “planning mode”. A basket of sorts was prepared, and a trip down to the river bank was treaded with much prayer for the safety of her child. Placing him…

    Two Simple Bible Truths You Don’t Want to Miss

    Today’s Bible’s key verses are from Matthew 12:14 and 15 KJV “Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;” – Matthew 12:14 and 15 This morning, I just have two simple truths to leave with you from this Scripture passage… #1 Jesus healed them ALL.  I love this little thought because Jesus loves each one of us. In that crowd that He healed,  you can be sure that there were (what we would call) some great sinners. Despite the fact that there…

    Oh, Where is Our Hope?

    Today’s key Bible reference is Lamentations 3:40 KJV The book Lamentations consists of five poems regarding the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in 586 BC. Misery, grief and overwhelming anguish because of Jerusalem’s destruction is bemoaned during the first part of Lamentations, and then a new promise of HOPE is unfolded in the middle of the book. Lamentations 3:22 and 23 says, “It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” This should be encouraging to us in the midst of trials today, because we can know that God is ever merciful and…

    If This, Then That

    Today’s key Bible references are from Proverbs 2:4 and 5 KJV I’ve been working online for quite a few years now. Today there are tons of applications to automate processes. One of the very first automation apps I used back in the day was called, “If This, Then That.” You could create recipes for automating some of your work. One quick example was, IF you posted a blog article, THEN your blog photo and link would be automatically sent to your Facebook page. I loved the automation process. It made life much easier and saved me a lot of time. While reading my Bible, I have discovered lots of “if…
