Convictions: Basis for Personal Choices

Convictions: Basis for Personal Choices

Nevertheless, I(Jesus) tell you the truth; it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper(Holy Spirit) will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. (John 16:7, 8 ESV) Humility Discussing humbleness and humility this week, describes our President 41. President Bush is well remembered this week. His character and service was impeccable.

Humble: Humility Dismissed, Pride Surfaces

Humble: Humility Dismissed, Pride Surfaces

But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6 ESV)  Motivation Monday! December 3rd, and all decorated for Christmas. A friend posted, not decorated at all, and some may be in the middle…this is most unusual for me. I sat here with  the thought… Dear Jesus, I want to be humble, without having to eat humble pie. I’ve had my share and not a desired taste. Have you ever considered drive-thru individuals form an opinion of you? I make daily stops at our local Panera, and yesterday the car […]

Anxiety or Peace Transcending All Understanding?

Anxiety or Peace Transcending All Understanding?

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your request to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:4-7 NIV) Good vs. Evil Wanting to write a sweet message with start of Christmas season, share tried and true recipes, and extend a warm hug to each of you…wish it could be this simple. As we turn […]

Thanksgiving and Praise: The Lord is Good

Thanksgiving and Praise: The Lord is Good

Enter his gates with Thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. (Psalm 100: 4, 5 ESV) Motivating Monday! Psalm 100 will be a great, encouraging read today. Even as I typed the two verses above, a joy surged within, remembering God’s love. His love endures forever! Forever is a mighty long time. To infinity and beyond…surreal to imagine, however not so much as years pass quickly. Are we able to worship the Lord with gladness? Might even be […]
