    Do You Really Have Great Pleasure in Serving the Lord?

    “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Psalms37:4 Good morning! This evening is another day that I’m looking forward to meeting in the “House of the Lord.” Where else would one rather be when the church doors are open? I hope the answer is nowhere else!! I’m so grateful to my parents, who raised me to be faithful to attend church each week. There was NEVER a lingering question, “Are we going to go to church today?” It was simply understood and mentally placed on “agenda list” just as you planned to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. You have to wonder…

    Let’s Leap, Let’s Leap!

    Did you know that LEAPING is a biblical activity? It’s amazing the challenges that you and I are able to LEAP over by the grace and help of God.  He gives us the power and strength to do what we cannot do on our own. With God’s help, you can climb over those steep mountains. You can traipse through those huge obstacles. You can pass over the solid,  brick walls in front of you. With God’s help, you can! David said in Psalm 18:29 (kjv), “For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.” The definition for LEAP is “to jump…

    Is Your Faith Steadfast or Shaky?

    I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. – Psalm 16:8 KJV How often we set the Lord before us can have a big correlation to how shaky or steadfast our faith stands… In Psalm 16:8, I first notice the word “ALWAYS.”  The Psalmist had a continual focus of putting the Lord before him…always! I’m wondering how often we miss out on having a good relationship with our Lord Jesus because we allow modern-day technology get in our way. We have the constant phone usage, computers and other gadgets that occupy our focus. Another notification from social media has…

    How to Fight and Finish Well

    Weariness.. Perhaps you’re facing a trial where there is no easy solution to conquer the situation. Our human nature often tries to prevail with a courageous “fight” to survive. After we realize that there’s no easy way out, we lose our peace…we toss and turn in bed at night. The more we fight, and the more we search for solutions, the more exhausted and weary we become. We fear the “what ifs” of tomorrow or near future.  We look back trying to see what we should have, could have done. We spin our wheels without any progress… wearily pushing forward, but barely hanging on. When Moses began leading the Israelite people out…

    When Should We Give Up and Seek God’s Help?

      Psalms 46:1 is one of my favorite Bible verses.  It’s a bold reminder that God is very present in our lives….and He’s there to help us in times of trouble. Sometimes we tend to rely on our “own strength” to get us through. We struggle and we worry.  We fret and we try to figure it all out. We lose sleep because our minds will not rest until we find a solution. Have you ever seen a stubborn toddler insist on doing something on their own? You know they really need help, but because of their fuss and insistence to “do it myself” you  let them struggle on their…
