Looking for Love in All the Right Places

There is so much anger and hatred in the country these days, most of it from political fodder. We have forgotten that we can disagree and still love one another. It’s time we share the “love chapter” of the Bible. 1 Corinthians 13 tells us exactly what love is and how to love each other. If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding …

A Season of Change

It sounds like the end might be coming for the virus quarantine. Hopefully, it won’t be much longer until we’re released. I’m glad for those who are healthy but saddened by those who had issues or lost loved ones. It’s been a trying time for most. Just remember, no matter what you’ve gone through or what will be ahead, Jesus has been with you always. And when this crisis is over, please remember the lessons …

More Ways to Get Through

Last week I discussed using some quotes from Billy Graham to get you through a crisis, whether it be illness or the death of a loved one. Today I thought I’d share five Bible verses to show you God’s love. Matthew 11:28-30: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, …

Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

  Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something new. A Youtube channel. I know, I must be crazy. I’ve attached the link below so you can view the first video. It’s only about 5 minutes so it won’t take you too long. This channel has to do with books, not a Christian blog, so this will probably be the only time I post it here. I …

Prayer in Times of Crisis

I know a lot of us are worried about this virus. We are concerned what will happen the next couple of months. Businesses are closing, that means no jobs, which means no income. People are racing to the stores and buying up anything and everything, so they have enough to make it through before stores close. Will there be enough for the rest of us? And now, churches are closing their doors. I thought this …

Panic is on the Way

Watch any news story and you’ll hear about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). What they don’t tell you is more people in the United States have died from the flu than have even contacted this new disease. Unfortunately, calmness doesn’t get people to watch the news. Panic is the name of the game right now. I understand this virus is bad, especially for the elderly or those with breathing issues. There is reason for concern, but in …

Getting Through Lent

For some, Lent is a time to stop doing something, whether it be put off smoking, chocolate, or sugar. For others, it’s a time to do get motivated. I for one am working on exercising more since I just found out I was prediabetic at my last physical. I definitely have to lose weight. No matter, what we try to do, the focus should be on God. Below is a prayer from the website https://prayer.knowing-jesus.com. …

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Most of the United States felt a freeze this past weekend. Even Jacksonville barely topped fifty degrees for a high on Friday. You’d think since I was from Idaho, it wouldn’t have bothered me that much. Wrong. I’ve been in Florida over thirty years, and trust me, my blood has thinned. I thought to get us started on our week, that maybe a fun video would do the trick. While the cold bothers most Floridians, …
