  • Hold Fast

    “Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand, by which also you are also saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:1-2 Some time ago, I had to […]

  • The Gift of God’s Reminders

    Last night was one of those nights. You know what I mean; most of you have been there as well. Sometime during the night, I found myself awake, and my brain suddenly kicked into high gear. It started rattling on about a trip we’ve been planning for the end of the year and whether we […]

  • God Moves in a Mysterious Way

    The hymn God Moves in a Mysterious Way may not be as familiar as hymns such as Amazing Grace or When Peace Like a River, but its words carry a great deal of meaning, nonetheless. I first became acquainted with it while I was in college, and it became one of my favorite hymns. It […]

  • It is Well with My Soul

But if you search for Tricia and The Four you can see it on her website. I mention this picture because of what it represents, and the message it carries. The world […]

  • The Crumbs from God’s Table

    I have my favorite characters in the Bible; I’m sure you do, too. I would hazard a guess if I were to ask you who your favorite was, some would say David for being a man after God’s own heart, maybe Solomon for his wisdom, perhaps Paul or one of the other apostles, or maybe […]

  • When the Day Turns as Gray as the Weather

    This is from one of my old blogs, Finding My Way Home, and was referenced in my previous post. My cancer has been a long-standing problem and will never go away until I do. Praise be to God that so far, the side effects from the medications have been minimal, although trying to work out […]

  • When Your Life is No Longer Under Your Control

    I’d be willing to bet most of you looked at the title and had a specific thought come to you about what it meant. Chances are pretty good the thought was wrong. When we think of not having control over our life it usually brings to mind something painful, terrifying, depressing, perhaps terminal, but always […]
