Resting in God’s Presence


In our world today we live almost twenty-four hours on and get very little actual rest even when we do sleep. Many of us have trouble sleeping, as I do, and take medication to “help us along”. In reality and physically we are sabotaging our restful periods because our body feels that if we don’t […]

What do you value?


In society, no matter where that society is, it seems to be respect and a standing in the community that is valued most. In some areas of society it is wealth and power and prestige that is valued more. There are times that all of those combine into one abiding and driving force in a […]

Think on this…


Shoes in Church I showered and shaved……………. I adjusted my tie. I got there and sat……………. In a pew just in time. Bowing my head in prayer………… As I closed my eyes. I saw the shoe of the man next to me……. Touching my own. I sighed. With plenty of room on either side……… I […]

Daily problems and an eternal cure


Yesterday was my son’s birthday and we were supposed to go out to eat. He and his mother did, I had sinus problems which caused me to get sick enough to puke and had to stay at home. Ruined my day in some ways, but we had pizza and birthday cake (chocolate) with ice cream […]

Judgement, where does it start?


Many times in God’s Word, the judgement began at the door of the Temple and went from there. Today, I believe that the church, all churches, needs to examine its doctrine and its practices to make sure that they line up with God’s Word. If any part of our service, our doctrine or our lives […]

Happy Birthday, America!


I know this is supposed to be a site where you learn more about God and your salvation but the birthday of America wouldn’t have happened if it hadn’t been for people of faith. Our land has been around for 240 years, or at least that is how long it has been since our Declaration […]
