Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6

Christmas Means

Christmas means Joy: The Psalmist proclaimed In His Presence is Fullness of Joy” and he longed for that presence. Christmas means God became flesh and dwelled among men and we beheld His Glory as God changed from a faraway deity into a present with us Savior! No wonder we celebrate with such Joy. Christmas means…

A Baby Cried

For four hundred years God remained silent. Disease, war, and despair devastated the earth. World changing empires rose and fell. Israel again slipped into the bondage oppression of a foreign power and the people of God once again cried for God to show Himself and bring relief. But days passed into years as no new…

Manic Monday

The Father’s Will Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground! Psalms 143:10 ESV With 2017 winding down I am reflecting on this past year. I always strive to do better in all that I do, especially in ministry. My reasoning is because I…

Don’t Blame Christmas

I think most people will admit that Christmas has gotten out of control. It has evolved from a time of worshipping a babe in Bethlehem into a time when we feed our greeds, are overwhelmed with stressful needs, and overdo our feeds. It has backpedaled so far into October until many people have had about…

Gas Man Gas

I pulled up at a gas station recently and noticed that a gas delivery truck was getting gas at the pump beside me. The gas man was getting gas! Gas trucks are something we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about. We assume gas just gets to the pumps so we can purchase and use…

Godly Counsel Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:22‬ ‭ESV‬‬ I am blessed to work with a group of people who truly want to do the will of God. They can bring a different perspective on what could look like a hopeless or failed situation. It is good to talk things…

Driveway Disappointment

Six year old Timmy looked at his parents one day and said, “I know exactly what I want for Christmas this year. A New Car!” The parents said, “Fine” and added “new car” to Timmy’s Christmas list. Christmas day arrived and Timmy rushed past the presents piled under the tree and into the yard where…

Manic Monday

She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21 This weekend while at the Carolina Opry I heard one of my favorite songs. Faith Hill sings it beautifully… “A Baby Changes Every Thing”. Emotion just rushed over me while the song…

Prayer Barriers

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (Mark 11:24) Can this verse really be in scripture? Is it possible that God really WANTS to answer our prayers? The answer, of course, is that, like any loving Father, God wants…

Gratitude

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6). The cute little girl ran up to her granddad with open arms. The granddad leaned down and welcomed his grandchild into his arms for a great big “bear hug”. Nestled in…
