Independence Day... USA!
Authored by praizeop2 on Thu, Jul 04 2013 - 08:34 AM
To all our friends in the USA, we wish you blessings today, July 4. On this day in 1776, Godly men, led by the Spirit of God, declared that the original 13 colonies were independent from England, opening the door to spread the gospel world-wide. As the Lord so often does, He began with a small group who were willing to stand up for Jesus ...Read Blog »
Divorce & Remarriage v.s. Fornication & Adultery
Authored by cybersaintkc on Mon, Jun 24 2013 - 11:07 AM
There are some in the Church that are quick to jump on others about certain issues, mostly because some people have pride issues, and need to make themselves feel superior to others. This leads to hurt feelings, and more damage being done to people who have already experienced great trama in thier lives. In other words, some people just love to ...Read Blog »

Oh say, can you see...
Authored by praizeop2 on Mon, May 27 2013 - 03:38 PM
I just wanted to say thank you to all those who are serving and have served to protect our country. I pray that their service will continue to make room for our "religious" freedoms. Thank You, Lord, that in spite of indications to the contrary, we are STILL a Christian nation and will continue to be so as long as the USA remains. ...Read Blog »
Whom Do You Respect?
Authored by praizeop2 on Sat, May 04 2013 - 07:11 PM
What does it mean to "respect" someone? We always say that someone must "earn" our respect, but how do they do that? I mean, if you really think about a person, ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God. So how does one "earn" respect? What does it take? ...Read Blog »

When Is Jesus Coming?
Authored by m7th on Sun, Apr 14 2013 - 02:59 PM
Maybe in Our Lifetimes I have wondered about the time of His coming for most of my life. Growing up in an old-fashioned Pentecostal home, my mother knew all the scriptures concerning holiness, sanctification, and righteousness in God’s eyes. Every time we went to church there was an overpowering presence of the Lord in the service. It ...Read Blog »
What is that in thine hand?
Authored by Probiblos1948 on Fri, Apr 12 2013 - 02:45 PM
I turn 65 this year and at times it is easy to feel that the time of my service for the Lord is over. After all, I am disabled, barely making ends meet financially and unable to travel long distances since I no longer drive due to seizures caused by a stroke after brain surgery five years ago. I learned a lesson this week though. I ...Read Blog »
He Is Risen, Just As He Said...
Authored by praizeop2 on Sat, Mar 30 2013 - 08:30 PM
Easter...The reason for our hope. He is risen and we are forgiven. As we celebrate His resurrection, I want to suggest that we give some thought to our part. Jesus took the stripes for our healing, and He hung on the cross to atone for our sins. How have you repaid Him? How have I? Those of us on the Praize Team are praying for this to ...Read Blog »

These are busy days, and many of us are going through trials, the like of which we have never seen before.

Soaking up love

In January I learned to "knit" ruffle scarves. I have tried to knit before with little success. I have poor hand-to-eye coordination (I flunked cutting with scissors in elementary school!), so I lack the dexterity required to properly hold knitting needles and maintain consistent tension with the yarn. However, the ruffle scarves are ...Read Blog »
Happy Birthday, Jim Carley
Authored by robertcarley on Sat, Feb 09 2013 - 08:39 AM
Today is the birthday of my daddy Pastor Jim Carley. There is very little I could say that would do justice to this man of god . The older I get the more I get him! I appreciate his hard work , his many sacrifices, his hours of worry, his example, his pride , his reproof and correction and all the love he invested in raising his six children. His ...Read Blog »

What if today I chose not to look at the down side. What if I viewed every situation through possibility tinted glasses. What if I decided not to hold hurts, or bitterness, or anger, or fear, or shame. What if I chose to smile even when my angry face seems easier. What if I chose to give rather than receive , to celebrate rather than to regret. ...Read Blog »
It IS a New Year of Expectation!

Here we are in a new year. And it IS a new year. Things will not be the same as last year, they will be new. Last year is over and we can close the door on it, so I am excited about what this year will bring. I think sometimes the years go by and we get older without giving much thought to the whole process. We celebrate ...Read Blog »

A new year...a new beginning...a new opportunity. I love new things. I remember when I was a child and my mother sewed new clothes for me.

That's the feeling I get with a ...Read Blog »
