Today we are continuing our look at the character aspects of Jesus in Isaiah chapter nine. Last week, I wrote about Wonderful Counselor. This week I’m sharing The mighty God, The everlasting Father, and The Prince of Peace. One fact we need to remember, these are characteristics of God that Jesus has. While they are separate beings, they are yet the same.Read More
Throughout the pages of the Bible, we see everything pointing to our Lord. No matter where we read, we see God. But when we dig a little further, there is one verse in the Bible that gives us a magnificent view of our Lord. Within this verse, there are several characteristic aspects identified. A simple comma is used to create Wonderful and Counselor depending on the version you use. While this comma doesn’t change Him or his character, I will share both aspects of our Lord.Read More
Several months I prayed for guidance before taking the leap. Writing a weekly subject was something I felt drawn to do, but was afraid of getting off course, as in the past and not being able to keep at it. As a member of a large blogger help group on Facebook, I found my answer, the Thankful Thursdays Linkup. For 21 months, I’ve hosted the Thankful Thursdays Linkup. I shared things I was grateful for and the things I was not really all that thankful for when they happened. But as I continued sharing every week, my heart softened towards them.Read More
When we visited the Grand Canyon, I was speechless at the first peek of what God carved out of the earth with His hand. When we walked along the edge, all I could say was “oh my”. I found myself in the same speechless situation when we drove around the mountain and saw the majestic glaciers. Again, two words were all I could say when we walked into the open field of flowers seeing Saint Mary Lake flowing towards the glaciers. How I felt during those trips is unforgettable. Experiencing such beauty, I can only imagine the speechlessness we will have when we see The King in His Beauty.Read More
There are many heartbroken people in the world today. Whether the broken heart is from the results of sin, personal choices or just life in general, there are things in life that are guaranteed for us Christians. We have a hope and peace the lost don’t have. There's a Light at the end of the tunnel we can depend on. We don’t have to weather the storms alone. There is always a Strong Tower we can run to.
10 Guarantees in the Christian’s Life
1. God is on the throne and in control. (Matthew 19:26, Romans 8:28)
2. Jesus is the only way to heaven.
3. The tomb is empty. (Matthew 28: 5-6)
4. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. (I Timothy 6:15, Revelation 17:14)
5. There’s room at the cross for more. (Luke 14:22-23)
6. Our sins are forgiven.
7. Prayer works.
8. The Bible has the answers to our problems and encouragements for our day.
9. God will never leave us or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5)
10. We belong to Christ no matter what we do.
While uncertainty and storms rage around us, we can't allow ourselves to be consumed by them. We need to take our eyes off of what is going on around us and put them back where they belong, on the Lord. We need to ponder on the 10 Guarantees we have in Our Christian Life.

Everywhere we look we’re hearing more and more about efficiency. Businesses hire experts to audit daily operations so they can produce a speedier production. More efficient = more work = more profit. Appliance manufacturers are always introducing the next best thing to help save busy people time. Efficient appliances are supposed to be saving energy, water, and time, but do they work as well as the older appliances? Not according to the loud humming coming from a 1940’s refrigerator I saw on Saturday while at an antique store with my husband.Read More
Dysfunction is the only word anyone wanted to use. After meeting with the parents, it was more than just dysfunction. It was neglect, selfishness, and just being too busy for this little active mind that needed the extra support. When I left the meeting that afternoon, I hung my head in defeat. All I could do was pray for the revealing of secrets.Read More
