"But Naaman was furious and went away and said, "Indeed! I thought 'He would at least come out to [see] me and stand and call on the name of the Lordhis God, and wave his hand over the place [of leprosy] and heal the leper.' " II Kings 5:11 Naaman really stuck out to me in my reading this week. He was highly regarded by his King. He was a successful supreme commander of t...

Blaming Others or Accepting Responsibility

Updated Blog4

This week I was with our granddaughters who love for people to read books to them. So, as they pulled out the books they wanted me to read to them we came to a book that had a page torn and was missing in the middle of the book. I asked the one I was reading to "what happened to the page? Who ripped the page out of the book?" She looked at me and took a few minutes and the...

Updated Blog3

Our Speech/Words: Powerful or Destructive?

Updated Blog2

My first flinch was disgust and being broken hearted about what so many would read and think. I was probably more disgusted about what man may think, disregarding what God thinks. During my time in ...

No King but Jesus

Updated Blog2

"Crazy times we're living in." I wonder how long people have been saying that. Likely, throughout mankind, some variant of this phrase has been on our lips. I was recently reminded of how easily we as Christians can look to our government as savior. We might not think we do but let's examine this together. When our political party wins, we rejoice and feel a sense of assu...

Take Possession

Blog Images

"So Joshua said to the sons of Israel, "How long will you put off entering to take possession of the land which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?" Joshua 18:3 In verse 3 Joshua was asking the tribes why they were putting off their instruction to go possess the land.
