Turn To God

What do you do in times of trouble? Who do you call on when you need strength? Life can be hard. Parenting is hard. Things can get complicated. Is it easier to try to go at it alone? Just a few weeks ago, I emphasized the importance of community. Reaching out to others is important, but calling out to God should be our first response in times of need.  Psalm 46:1-3 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a helper…

Pray For Your Children

In Nehemiah 4:14, scripture states, “After I made an inspection, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials, and the rest of the people, ‘Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the great and awe-inspiring Lord, and fight for your countrymen, your sons and daughters, your wives and homes.’”  As parents, I can think of no mightier way to fight than on our knees with our heads bowed in prayer!  As parents, it seems like a given that we…

In All Things Give Thanks

My friends, this past week has been such a huge challenge for many and, being truthful, it isn’t over yet. Some have been mildly inconvenienced, while others have been devastated. During times of hardship, it can be so easy to slip back into the habit of complaining and forgetting to give thanks. God’s perfect word for every situation, including SNOVID-19, is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 which says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks, for this is…

Whiter Than Snow

What a week! We haven’t had snow like that here in our area in quite a while. It doesn’t matter if you like the cold and snow or not, you must admit that fresh snow is beautiful. I love waking up to the yard and street being covered with snow, especially before anyone has walked or driven on it.  The fresh white snow always reminds me of Psalm 51:7 where David writes, “Purify me with hyssop, and I will be…

Service Update

We hope and pray all of you are safe and sound. It has been a trying week for many people, not only in our area, but in our state and many parts of our nation. Like many of you, the church building experienced rolling blackouts and freezing temperatures. Because of the lack of power and heat, the church building and office suffered broken water pipes and flooding. The water has been extracted but damage still remains. We are in the…

Love God And Love Others

Jesus tells us in Mark 12:30-31, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is, Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other command greater than these.” Love God and love others. The end. Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, it is not always easy. God loves us and wants our love in return. He wants to spend time with us. On good…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is a week where pretty little cards, sometimes with candy attached, are being exchanged in classrooms, moms and dads are having date nights, and many children are waking to surprises expressing that they are loved.  It is the week of Valentine’s Day.  February is the month of love and Valentine’s Day is at the heart of it all (pun intended)! But what if you do not go to school?  Or what if you do not get pretty cards?  What…

We Need Community

com·mu·ni·ty: a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. Who is in your community? Who has God put around you to go through life with? There are so many ups and downs in life, that it is easy to get discouraged, especially if you are trying to go about it alone. What about parenting? Are you trying to do that alone also? Are you trying to carry your burdens alone? Galatians 6:2 says,…

The Month Of Love

We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 February is sometimes called the month of love.  What better time to challenge ourselves, as we look at and evaluate how well we are doing at expressing our love to God and to others.  1 John 4:19 says, “We love because He first loved us.”  It is mind blowing to think that the Creator of the world chose us and loved us before we loved Him back.  What a model…

One Of Your Most Important Mission Fields

Deuteronomy 6:5-7 gives us, as Christian parents, our job description, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Parenting can be hard.  The hours are long and…
