No fear of the future

Do you fear the future? Do you fear the unknown? You're not alone.  Being anxious about the future is a common fear. But we don't have to fear the future!  We have a God who holds the future in HIS hands!!   Consider the words to this beautiful hymn: God sent His son, they called Him Jesus, He came to love, heal, and forgive;  He lived and died to buy my pardon, An empty grave is there to prove my...

Dawn on Ormond Beach

Whenever we are away, I love to get up before dawn and sit with my bible as the sun comes up. It's such a quiet, calming, peaceful time.  For me, there is nothing like it.  To take in the majesty and beauty of God's creation and the realization that God gives us a new beginning every day is just awesome.  The peace we can experience when we do this is perfect for just sitting before the LORD with NO DISTRACTIONS...

El Roi – The God Who Sees

God sees

We've all been in that dark place where we feel so alone. But we are never alone!  God sees everything! The names of God are so meaningful and can be applied to our lives in such a beautiful and practical way. God sees Hagar In Genesis 16, we see the story of Hagar, the maidservant of Abram and Sarai.  Sarai was becoming impatient waiting to get pregnant and decided to take matters into her own hands. She told Abram to...

Mornings

We all strive to be a "Proverbs 31 woman". We want to be that woman described in Proverbs 31:10-31 who does it all and is perfect in character.  Verse 15  says, "She gets up while it is still night", which makes sense; if she wants to accomplish all that is described here, she would have to get up pretty early. The picture here is for her to start her day before any else in the house gets up.  I never...

Gaining an eternal perspective

When we are discouraged or even in despair, we need to stop and focus on what the bible says so that we can gain an eternal perspective.   1)  Luke 10:20  "Nevertheless, do not rejoice that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven." 2) 2 Corinthians 4:17  "For this light, momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison." 3)  Romans 8:18  "For I consider that the...

Should we make New Year’s resolutions?

As the beginning of a new year arrives, most people take the opportunity to make resolutions, which is a good thing, but I have seen that for the most part, resolutions get broken and we get discouraged.  Instead, I am purposing, starting today, to be more disciplined in the areas of bible reading, memorizing, and studying God's word, eating, and exercising.  Notice, I said more disciplined. I am not limiting myself to something specific like, "I will read four chapters...

Meditating on God’s Word

If you're having a crazy, busy, day and are really struggling to sit down quietly with the Lord today, I have a solution:  Take just one scripture verse and meditate on it throughout the day. One of my favorite verses that I would highly recommend memorizing is Psalm 16:5.  It says "O LORD, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain my lot".  There are thousands of verses that are so powerful and so rich in...

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...
