    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…

    Today’s Bible passage is Mark 6:32 – 52. Key verses are Mark 6:52, Ezekiel 36:26, James 1:17. (In King James Version.) Have you ever accidently gone through a red light or stop sign? It was right in front of you, but somehow you absent-mindedly bypassed it without taking notice. Maybe this hasn’t happened to you, but I admit that I’ve done it before. Thank GOD for His protective measures at that time. I imagine that I’m a real challenge for Him at times. Haha! Stop lights and stop signs are critical warning signs. Yet, it’s so easy for us to miss important factors in life. Today, I’m sharing an amazing event…

    Make Those Little Cakes of Faith

    Key Verse: Hebrews 11:1 KJV What is your greatest obstacle to faith? Often, it’s what we can NOT SEE that sparks our fears. Today, let’s look back to a true story about a desperate widow woman, who felt that she and her son’s days  were very limited… Have you ever thought how she felt? Alone. Hungry. Full of agony. (A mother’s heart hurts greatly, bearing the pain of her own children’s sufferings.) As always, God had a plan. The Lord God instructed Elijah, the prophet, to go dwell in Zarephath. He informed Elijah about a widow woman living there, who would sustain him. (I Kings 17:9) Side note: This reminds…
