God Is Still in Control

God Is Still in Control

I hear mumbling, questioning, and uncertainty when individuals discuss the new administration taking residence at the White House and the violence happening around us; wherever you live. It is not segregated to the inner city, as many proclaim – violence, murder, assaults, thefts, and much more is occurring in the suburbs, churches, businesses, and banks. […]

Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” Isaiah 49:15 (KJV) Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers! As we celebrate mothers around the country, I’d like to meditate on Isaiah 49:15 above.

Thinking About Eternity

Thinking About Eternity

Today I will conclude my discussion on life after death. When we depart this physical earth – our family, friends, social clubs, church associations, volunteerism – That’s when life will truly begin for us. SHOULDN’T WE THEN BE THINKING ABOUT ETERNITY?   Should we not be deciding if we want to spend eternity   in […]

In the Blink of an Eye

In the Blink of an Eye

Continuing from last month: Let’s turn to 1st Thessalonians 4:13 – 14 and read what it says: 13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that […]

In the Grave – But Not Dead

In the Grave – But Not Dead

While meditating and reflecting one day, I thought about things that most humans think about  – What happens when we die? Where do we go when we are deceased? Do we go to heaven? Do we go to paradise? Do we stay in the grave? The Apostle Paul says to be absent from the body […]

The Open Door

As we begin another year, we will commit to – “let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts; and be thankful.” For some of us, 2016 was a very good year, for others it was a traumatic year, and for many it was a life changing year. Whatever your position in 2016 – wonderful, […]

Cockiness Can Lead to Sinfulness

Cockiness Can Lead to Sinfulness

We’ve all dealt with temptations and if you haven’t, just keep living… I’ve had many temptations in my lifetime, some that I was able to avoid; some that I yielded to, and some that caught me off guard. I try to remember my mistakes so that I do not repeat them. You’ve probably heard your […]

I’m Telling Daddy

I’m Telling Daddy

I remember my brother who is two years older than me picking on me when we were little, probably because I wanted to follow him around. He would shove me and tell me to get in the house when I was spying on him or pinch me when I got sassy. I always shouted, “I’m […]

When God Doesn’t Seem to Be Paying Attention

I will never leave you nor forsake you; I am with you always, even to the end of time. O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. Psalm 83:1 I’ve been praying for a particular situation for several years and it seems like God is not paying attention […]

Leaving a Legacy of Honesty

Leaving a Legacy of Honesty

2 Kings 12:15 (NIV) “They did not require an accounting from those to whom they gave the money to pay the workers, because they acted with complete honesty.” I studied the story of Joash, the youngest to become king of Judah, this morning and was struck by a couple of things in the narrative. One– […]

Rose of Sharon
