Healing Prayers

When we pray for someone who is sick or gravely ill, it feels different than when we speak to God in our prayers every day. We may be asking for a miracle or for comfort and peace. We may feel that we are completely surrendering ourselves to God as we ask for healing for someone we care about. We ask God to give the doctors the knowledge to heal, or we may say to God that if it is in your will to…

Christmas Perspective

We are in the middle of the Christmas season. Everything is rushed and busy. There are so many things to do.

The holiday season also finds us helping those in need more than any other time of the year. We adopt families, provide meals, purchase Christmas gifts, and give our time to people during the holiday season.

The holidays can tend to be very lonely for many people. It is a…

Football Lessons

The weather has cooled significantly, and the leaves have changed. We are also in the middle of football season. I know that not all of us are interested in football, and that is just fine. We all have different interests in life. I just happen to be very focused on football. I have learned the game, which has helped, and I really enjoy watching it. However, I also feel guilty about the time and…

Why Faith?

Why is faith so important in our lives as Christians? Faith allows us to believe in something that we cannot see, feel, or touch. Matters of God require us to believe and rest on the Word of God.

In the Old Testament, God would reveal Himself to His people in amazing ways. People would have faith in God, but some would go back to worshipping idols.

In the New Testament, Jesus walked…

A Good Habit

One of the best habits that we can establish in our lives is reading our Bible daily. A Bible feeds you mentally just like food feeds you physically.

Man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.
— Deuteronomy 8:3 (ESV)

No matter what our mood is for the day, reading a few verses can calm us and set us on the…

To Forgive and Be Forgiven

Have you ever found it difficult to forgive someone? Why is it so hard to do sometimes?

If we can forgive, we are letting go of blame and suffering that we are holding inside. This can lead to pain and depression if we are not able to move on.

To not forgive can make you exhausted. You think about it too much. It can…

A Father’s Role

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18. The role of a father originated with God, our Heavenly Father, and is both a role and a calling. It is an important one to love and care for children as God loves and cares for us.

Just as we look at God as our protector, we look at our father the same way.…

Connections to Our Mother

Mother’s Day is a holiday that gives us all kinds of memories and feelings. We think of our childhood and how we celebrated our mother. The images may be filled with homemade necklaces or handmade cards filled with glitter … perhaps flowers from our yard or special family meals. This day may also feel complicated. It can be a holiday that stirs up hard emotions, grief, and conflict. Some of…

Easter is Almost Here!!

Holy Week is here, and Easter is almost upon us. Hallelujah! “Christ is risen! He is risen, indeed.”

How surprised they must have been on the first Easter Sunday morning when the women found the tomb open. The Resurrection of Jesus changed the world. For followers of Jesus, life would never be the same.

The Resurrection of Christ is God’s way of announcing that if we believe,…

God Moments During Lent

Take some time this week to think about the season of Lent. For some people it can feel dark and sad, and yet we should remember that our faith in God and His love for each of us is so important during this time.

Pay attention to God’s presence in your life. This will look a little different to each of us. We may notice it when we are at peace or when we are happy. We feel the love in…
