Happy Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July

Over 200,000,000 pounds of fireworks are purchased each year. Dear Father, God, it’s me, the United States of America. It’s that time of year when we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and I just wanted to send out a quick prayer to You before all the hoopla gets started. First, I want to thank You for loving me and caring so much that You sent Your Son to die for all my …

Where is God when bad things happen?

Where is God when bad things happen?

Today we have special guest Clare Revell. As a British author, Claire gives us a unique perspective on the tragedy in Manchester. And be sure to check out the information on her new release below: Where is God when bad things happen? It’s been a really horrid couple of weeks here in the UK. There was Manchester – 22 dead.

A Small Step at a Time

A Small Step at a Time

Have you ever wondered how someone becomes a thief or even a killer? Most aren’t born that way. They grow into their life of crime one step at a time. A robber doesn’t start with a bank. He goes after Mom’s jewelry first or takes money from Dad’s wallet. Did you know most serial killers don’t kill humans first? They usually begin with animals and then work their way up to men or women. Punish …

Why Me?

Why Me?

There’s the waitress who didn’t get a tip after serving that large group of people. Or the college graduate who can only find a job making minimum wage. Or the author who can’t seem to sell enough books. They all have one thing in common. Discouragement. Don’t be discouraged in your job. God put you there for a reason. A lot of us are in the same boat. We continually ask why me or why …

Who Do You Pray For?

Who Do You Pray For?

When you pray, do you pray for yourself or others? Maybe you pray to get something you want? How often do you pray for God to get what He wants? You might say “Your will be done,” but do you really mean it? Would you be able to think of others if you were up on that cross?

How Do You Handle Change?

How Do You Handle Change?

Wanted to share my new 3D cover for my e-book. Only $2.99 on Amazon and other retailers. http://amzn.to/2kza7uR. Now on to my blog:   How Do You Handle Change? Change. Most of us don’t handle it well, especially if it’s something big. The stress can feel like a noose around our necks. Yet change is a constant. A couple Sundays ago, the pastor of our church announced he would be retiring the middle of 2018. Some …

An Easter Reminder

An Easter Reminder

There will be no blog because of Easter. However, I saw this and thought it was a good daily reminder of why Jesus died for us. If you or someone you know is in need of prayer this week, please leave a comment. We’d be more than happy to pray for you. And if this post moved you in some way, please feel free to share it.

Why Is It So Hard to be a Christian?

Why Is It So Hard to be a Christian?

When people first come to Jesus, they flourish. Then they start to waiver. They thought being a Christian would be easy and everything would turn to roses and rainbows. But that is not what occurs. In fact, at times, it’s harder to be a Christian than a nonbeliever. At first, Christians flourish and blossom in God’s word only to wilt later in their faith. There are several reasons why this is. We, as Christians, think …
