I'm Back and in Need of Prayer

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Jun 29 2008 - 06:45 PM

I cannot believe it has been over a month since I've been able to BLOG!  The motherboard died on our computer.  While I don't know exactly what that means, I know it was a bad thing! I am grateful to be back on-line and will hopefully get a chance to catch up on everyone's blogs very soon.  I've missed the inspiration your words always provide me. ...

Too Many Weeds

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, May 24 2008 - 06:46 AM

Have you ever noticed how quickly a few weeds can multiple in your garden?  They seem to take over and try to choke the life out of your precious plants.  Sometimes, when the rains come, the weeds seem to grow twice as fast as the plants.  Sure, you try to pluck out the weeds, but it seems 2 others grow in the place of the one you removed.   It is ...

The Blazing Furnace and God our Hero

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, May 03 2008 - 08:12 PM

If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it.  Daniel 3:17 NIVOften in our lives, we are thrown into a blazing furnace.  We become engulfed by fear, depression, addictions, anger, worry, financial burden, health issues or a multitude of other possibilities.   Like fire, these things are hot, uncomfortable...

Reach for the Son and Let Him Reign

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Apr 20 2008 - 09:15 AM

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...

Sinister Siblings Sent by Satan

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Mar 30 2008 - 06:11 PM

I got a call yesterday from someone very special.  She is someone that I barely know from a usual perspective, but somehow God has tied us together spiritually in a strong way.  She is a pastor's wife and very in tune to things of the Spirit.  I think of her as somewhat of a prophet.  She listens to God and speaks things that only He could have...

What Are You Doing Under There?

Posted in Jobs & Career 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...

Do You Recognize Him?

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Mar 22 2008 - 07:27 AM

Can you just imagine how the disciples and followers of Jesus felt after watching Jesus die on the cross?  Jesus, their precious Jesus, was gone.  Tortured, beaten, spit on, hung between to criminals.  He was Dead.  In a tomb, covered by a stone.  That was it--the end.  They were so sorrowful.  They thought He was going to be their King, their...

What do you think?  That sounds like a simple, innocent question and most of the time it is, but if you really dig deep there can be a lot more to it. What do you think?  What do you think about?  Really, what is on your mind alot?  When nothing else is going on, what pops into your head? What do you think of yourself?  What do you think of others?...

Faith of a Child

Posted in Jobs & Career 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?

Posted in Jobs & Career 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...

Sneak Attacks

Posted in Jobs & Career on Wed, Feb 13 2008 - 05:12 PM

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Jan 12 2008 - 06:27 AM

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...

Turn to Me

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Jan 06 2008 - 07:12 PM

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...

3 Simple Things

Posted in Jobs & Career 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

Posted in Jobs & Career 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,...
