Faith of a Child

Authored by worknmom on Sun, Feb 24 2008 - 07:11 AM

Normally, when I see the phrase "faith like a child", I think of a no worry attitude.  The purely innocent and determined belief that everything will be okay because God will take care of it.  My nephew, about 3 or 4 at the time, displayed a perfect example of this years ago when my uncle was in the intensive care unit after having a ...

Why are the Bad Guys Always Winning?

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Feb 23 2008 - 06:28 AM

Even the most upbeat person can watch the news or read a newspaper a few days in a row and get a little discouraged.  "Bad news" is all around us.  I don't know about you, but I sometimes question it.  Why?  Why did God let that happen?  Why are the bad guys always winning?  As a child, I was taught never to question God and I took that ...

On Friday during my lunch break, I went out to the parking lot to walk and pray.  It was a gorgeous day.  The first sunny, rain-free day we've had in a while.  The wind was blowing gently.  The sun was bright.  The sky was a beautiful blue, with little while clouds that honestly appeared to be brushed stroked on a canvas in the perfect places ...

Turning your head away from something important even for a moment can have big consequences. If any of you have children, you know that sometimes you can turn your eyes away from them just a few quick seconds and they either get hurt or get into something they shouldn't!  When driving a car, you can turn your head away from the road for just a ...

Life is full of choices....  You choose what to eat for breakfast.  You choose the clothing you put on in the morning.  In most cultures, you choose your mate.  You make almost constant choices all throughout the day ever day. When you make a choice between 2 or more things, you are essentially "exchanging" one for the other.  For ...

Authored by worknmom on Wed, Dec 26 2007 - 07:18 PM

I missed my "quiet time" this morning.  Slept right through it!  I must have hit my alarm clock 10 times or more.  I felt awful about it.  Needless to say, my day just didn't go right from that point on.   I felt myself slipping to old worries, fretting about this and that, feeling a little down about Christmas being "over" and ...

Claim Him and Lame him

Authored by worknmom on Fri, Nov 30 2007 - 07:39 AM

I think we all would agree that we are in a constant battle with Satan.  He attempts to use our circumstances, our weaknesses, our hopes and our fears to destroy our Faith and weaken our Spirit.  His favorite place to fight us is in our minds--our thoughts and our reactions.  He wishes to cloud our minds with confusion, fear, hopelessness, anguish, ...

Trapped and Waiting

Have you ever been eager to get out of a place or a situation to the point that you almost make yourself miserable?  You can't think about anything else.  You lose all focus except for your desire to "get out".  You pray and pray for the situation to change or for the doors to open to the new place and it just doesn't seem to happen.  I ...

My 15 year old daughter cooked dinner for us tonight.  She picked a recipe out of my Rachel Ray cookbook.  She made her list and I took her to the grocery store.  We bought all the items she needed and after our evening walk she set out to prepare the meal.  She wanted to do it all on her own, but she wanted me to "hang-out" in the ...

I know that I have already blogged once today but God has really laid it on my heart to put this out here.  The other night I had a vision.  I say it was a vision because it was so clear and memorable--an image etched in my mind.  I woke up in the night and this is what I saw....  I saw myself kneeling at the alter in a church.  I had my face in ...

I've gotten a lot of it in the last few days.  One message God has sent to me through Joshua's story ...

Freedom in the Law

SIck Cows and Lame Lambs

When you bring blind animals for sacrafice, is that not wrong?  When you sacrafice crippled or diseased animals is that not wrong?  Try offering them to your governor!  Would he be pleased with you? Would he accept you, says the Lord Almighty.  Yet we implore God to be gracious to us.  With such offerings from your hands, will he accept you? - ...

What Are You Doing Under There?

Authored by worknmom on Fri, Mar 28 2008 - 07:28 PM

My preacher said something kind of funny on Sunday.  He was talking about having "joy" and "being happy in Jesus in the moment".  He said that one thing he hates is when you ask someone how they are doing and they pitifully say..."I'm okay, under the circumstances".  He said he always wants to say, "what are you ...
