Our Perseverance

1 Corinthians 12:1-3 says this “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the…

More Reasons To Sing

I was listening to the radio a few days ago and this song seemed to leap out of the speakers at me. It’s called 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman. The message behind it is so powerful.  The principle is amazing to think about how unending and how great the love of the Lord is. Psalm…

Lead and Be Lead

In case you had thought that I had fell off the face of the map–I haven’t. And here is another video post! It’s a nice little post and quite appropriate I might add seeing that we are about to enter into the Father’s Day holiday. Father’s, the bible calls you a spiritual leader in your…

I Want To Live Like That!!!

I read an interesting article by Tel Asiado called The Need to Re-Energize: Why it is important to Rest, Sleep, and Relax. He had an interesting quote that reads, “To maintain a balanced physical, mental, emotional and spiritual best,…

The Importance of a Day

Psalm 118:24 (ESV) says, “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” The problem is not that today is the day that Lord has made. We may know that today is the day that God created; but, do we believe it? If we believe that God…

A Runner’s Creative Retelling

Are you a runner? I was. During High School and the first part of College I competed in track and field competitions often coming in first in sprinting the 400 meters and long distance running. I feel I was a much better long distance runner but you would have guessed I hung the moon with…

Grapes Are Delicious

I love grapes! Growing up grapes and cheese had been the family staple of long trips. During those long trips I loved my family, long car rides, the scenery, but especially the snacks. Grapes are juicy and sweet but need a lot of tender, love, and care (tlc) before they are ready to be picked….
