Trick or Treat on the Nation... and Other Tid Bits

I can't help but think that this weekend is so telling when it comes to the paramount issues facing our nation and world today. 

The word PARAMOUNT has come up several times over the past few days.  What does "paramount" mean?  Above, supreme, or dominant.  There are many things paramount to our li…

Become a "Daniel"

This topic of Daniel came up on Saturday evening, but it's really been on my heart.  Let's look at Daniel and see what we can learn.....

Daniel was a servant of God from the time he was young.  He was faithful to the Lord and put his trust in Him.  When times of trial came his way, he was not shaken…

Crucial Choice

We stand at a crossroads. Can't you just see it in your mind?  Not since the fight for our freedom in this country has there been such a divided war for the hearts and minds of Americans.   There are clear cut "sides".    I see it in my spirit as a railroad trac…

Rejoicing in Zerubbabel

Last night during prayer meeting at church, the Spirit led me to Zechariah chapter 4.  This is a message for all of us today. 

Zechariah 4

The Gold Lampstand and the Two Olive Trees
  Then the angel who talked with me returned and wakened me, as a man is wakened from his sleep. He asked me, "What…

Old Hymn

You know, I have to admit that I still love the old hymns.  One of my main reasons for this appreciation is that many were penned outpourings of the heart.  They were personal testimonies of what God had accomplished - not just someone sitting in a little room cranking out song after song because th…

Important Word for Today!

Now that we are down to the final 11 days before the election, I had a little thought run through my head yesterday.  Most people are looking in heightened anticipation at the elections much like they do Christmas.  If we had the "12 Days Before the Election Song", what would it say?

On the final v…

United We Stand-Divided We Fall- Part 2

What can possibly unify a body of people from different races, backgrounds, cultures, economic statuses, educational levels, varying life experiences, vocations, geological locations, and families?   The cross.  The work Jesus performed on the cross IS the unifying force, the glue so to speak, that …

United We Stand, Divided We Fall - Part 1

I've spoken over the past few days about being unified in Christ.  The closer we get to the return of the Lord the more we are going to see the church waxing cold. An increase of iniquity in the world will cause many to fall away. Widespread deception, apathy, and those who love pleasure will effect…

Recipe for Corn

I plan on posting another entry later today about what the Lord has been showing me concerning prayer  (if I can make the time to do it).  For this morning, I wanted to post a delicious recipe for corn that has been circulating.  It really is good.  I think Eunice gave it to my mother-in-law, Patty,…

Unified In....?

I heard on a morning national news show that the presidential candidates (at the dinner the other night) were united in.... laughter!  Is laughter a unifying force?  It made me stop and think about the universal language of music or perhaps love... but laughter?    I want to talk about what unifies …

Tarrying Over A Few Things...

Tarry with the Lord in PrayerWhen Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane the night he was betrayed, He began to pray.  Scripture details what happened, "Going a little ahead, He fell on his face, praying, "My Father, if there is any way, get me out of this. But please, not what I want. Y…

Christians Coming Together

I have really been thinking about this topic lately - how Christians are bonding together through the fellowship of Christ.  It's amazing to me that technology allows us to share out thoughts, prayer requests, and especially what the Lord has been saying to all of us across the internet.  We can sha…
