Christmas Joy

Corrie ten Boom shared her thoughts and memories about Christmas in her book Corrie’s Christmas Memories. She loved to share about the birth of Jesus and the visit of the shepherds. When I think of this story it makes me so happy. Do you know why? Because I know that the baby Jesus was born in…

Follow the Shepherds

As I thought and prayed about writing a Christmas devotion, I felt God wanted me to focus on the shepherds. Following the shepherds leads to a joyful challenge. It seems that often the shepherds are overlooked. Maybe because they don’t seem as interesting as the wise men who followed the star. We picture the wise men…

Redeem the Time

I love Standard, or what I call real-time. To me, setting our clocks back one hour each Fall is cause for celebration. Do you know why  we skip ahead an hour each Spring? Daylight Saving Time is to allow longer evening daylight in the summer, by setting clocks one hour ahead of Standard time. Well,…

Psalm 37:4

This morning, I turned off my alarm and reached for my cell phone to quickly check the weather. I was surprised to find the BibleGateway app open showing a scripture verse. I know that when I closed my phone and put it on my nightstand there were no open apps and I haven’t even used…

Consider the Cost

A few days ago, I pulled this old shirt out of my closet. I got the shirt at a Steve Camp concert in the early 90s. The words on the shirt remind me that many today are hearing a wrong message. I am talking about people who attempt to share Jesus as if they are selling a…

One Way Door

Corrie ten Boom spoke to many groups of people all over the world. Sometimes she visited and shared her story in prisons. She made a video especially for prisoners. Even if you are not living in a prison building, you may find that you are a prisoner. She had this in mind as she spoke on…

Don’t Leave Without Jesus

In  John 6:1-15  we read about  Jesus, the disciples, and a large crowd of hungry people. Jesus provides a meal for all the people even though the only food available was 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. There is so much in this account to study and savor. However this post is going to…

Happy?

Let me begin this post by sharing that I am not one who is easily impressed by new books. As a matter of fact, I feel that we have too many books being published at this time and most are not worthy of our time or money. In the categories of Christian Living and Personal…
