Parking Lot Promises

Having finished placing all the printed and electronic communications for worship, I left the church lobby, heading outside through the main glass doors toward my car. It wasn’t that far at all since I parked it right in front; I had plopped all the goodies in it and drove it the 100 or so feet...

Be Thankful

Being thankful isn’t just for the Thanksgiving holiday. Scripture tells us to be “thankful in everything, in all circumstances” (I Thessalonians 5:18). A little song we sang back in the 70’s that Evie Tornquist made popular was “Be Thankful For the Good Things That You’ve Got”. “Oh be thankful for the good things that you’ve got Oh...

He works it out

Today I had a disappointment. No biggie. All of us have them to one degree or another. Some are small annoyances, while others are life changing. So, as I was sitting here at my desk I was a bit annoyed, I admit. But, then I ‘happened’ to read Romans 8:28- “And we know that in...

Grass On The Path

Do you have grass on your path? Psalms 62:8 “Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah” Early African believers were earnest and regular in private devotions. Each one reportedly had a separate spot in the thicket where he would pour out...

Maybe it is the years and years of school, from kindergarten to graduation, that the fall has been seen as a new start. It’s the start of a new school year, new sports season, new friends, new teachers, and a new season of life with each year. So I can’t help but see this coming...
