Solar eclipse

God reveals Himself through nature (called natural revelation or general revelation). Millions of people were in awe of the rare phenomenon of the solar eclipse.  Let's be careful never to worship the creation over the Creator. Psalm 8:1 says "O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth! You have set Your glory above the heavens". We can meditate on this truth forever! It is truly amazing to think about the billions of stars and galaxies He spoke...

Turn your eyes upon Jesus

As we see the truth in this beautiful hymn, as we look to Jesus, nothing in this world is as bright. We need to take a little time each day to turn all our thoughts toward Jesus.  We all know this, BUT HOW??  What does it mean to turn our eyes upon Jesus? GRAB a few minutes of time when there are no distractions.  Some examples would be: while in the shower, while driving (without kids in the car), last thing...

Amazing love

We can take just a line from a great hymn or a line of scripture and meditate on it.  To dwell on the fact that Jesus, the King of Kings, died for me on that cross, took on all my sins and paid for them Himself is mind boggling. I am so unworthy and so undeserving of His forgiveness.  To be chosen by Him, forgiven, loved unconditionally, am called His child, and will live with Him forever is unfathomable. Enough said.

A waste of time

Do you feel like you spend half your life in places waiting to be called?  In my twenty-six years of raising five children, including two with serious heart defects requiring seven open heart surgeries, and one with special needs, I have spent countless hours in waiting areas.  Whether it be in hospitals, doctor's offices, dance studio waiting rooms, Department of Motor Vehicle offices, or college financial aid offices, I have had my share of seemingly "wasted time" with not much to...

Psalms and Proverbs

Is it a struggle to read the bible consistently?  It is so important to read the bible every day.  Psalm 119:105 says "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." It is what should direct every aspect of our lives.  It seems like so many times, when we try to grab a piece of undisturbed time to spend in God's word, the distractions come - the phone rings, the dog has to go out,...

First Things First

First things First Psalm 63:1 says "O God, my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You; In a dry and thirsty land where there is no water." We are in desperate need of the Lord every minute of every day.  Before our feet hit the floor, our very first thoughts as we wake up ought to be to acknowledge Him.  We need to thank the Lord every morning for giving us a...

Schedules and Flexibility

  Are you finding it difficult to spend time with the Lord? Is your day packed with daily responsibilities and you feel consumed by your busy schedules? You are not alone. For some people, a schedule works really well, but you may be finding it hard to fit in your devotions and time with the Lord in the midst of all of it.  It does not need to be such a struggle. A schedule allows you to set aside a specific time each day to devote yourself to the Lord. This is a time...

His Mercies are New Every Morning

  In the book of Lamentations, in the 3rd chapter, verses 22 and 23, it says "Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.  They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness". This is one the greatest promises in all of the bible.  It speaks so much of God's character and gives us such hope.  If not for God's mercy, we would fail miserably.  His compassion and love for us is never-ending.  We can...
