God Still Reigns…July 12th

kneel at the cross

An angry young man storms into the shop, slams his fist against the counter and shouts at the employee, ‘Who is in charge around here?’ With just a few words you know there is unrest and frustration.

Hands Full of Clay…May 3rd

how deep the father's love

Have you ever watched a child with a fresh ball of Play-Doh? They’ll squish it in their fingers, roll it into logs and pat it into pancakes. For hours they’ll create shapes and mold images from their imagination. Perhaps it’s no wonder that we are creative from such an early age since we’ve been molded by our …

Mary’s Song…Luke 1

Mary's song

Do we realize how powerful our words can be? We hear the saying a lot, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me…” But in all honesty, that is not true, and I speak from experience. The words that we speak on a daily basis can either bring someone’s spirit …

As a young boy growing up on a West Texas farm, I remember well the days we would raise little baby chicks. From hatchlings we would nurture them with heat lamps, clean water, the appropriate feed, warm straw and a secure chicken coop. Though I don’t recall if we ever ‘incubating’ the eggs, they were …

In the Waiting Room…Dec. 21st

Blessed Assurance

For many of us, the image is clear in our minds. Daddy is nervously pacing (or sitting) in the waiting room while the doctor and nurses tend to the expecting mother. At the same time, others can be found in this same room waiting ‘on pins and needles’ for the news that their loved one …

Can a Christian Be a Thinking Person?…Oct. 19th

Thinking mind

It was written in 1929 by Ernest Hemingway in the novel, A Farewell to Arms. A simple sentence that haunts mankind, “All thinking men are atheists.” The secular world would have you believe that faith in God is weakness and scientific ignorance.  In a world that speaks with disdain toward God and elation toward self, …

The Sign of the Covenant…Sept. 28th

covenant

A verbal commitment is binding, and yet an agreement that is documented (written) is stronger still. But what about an agreement between two individuals that has physical implications? A physical sign of what we have agreed upon. A handshake is physical, but is there more to it when it comes to our agreement, our covenant, …
