Keep Jesus in the Boat

Then He asked them, "Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?" Mark 4: 35-41 New Job. Kids doing great. Spouse is well. The sun is shining and you are constantly smiling. All of a sudden sunshine turns into dark clouds. Your marriage is on the rocks. Your heart has been broken with disappointment. You lost that good paying job.  You are struggling to make ends meet. Now you have tears in your eyes because life has come at you in a way that you are not able to manage. Sometimes you just want to scream out because you can't take one more positive step forward. These are situations that we call life storms. The disciples were in...

The Power of the Blood

"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace." - Ephesians 1:7 Mrs. Price was one of the best teachers I have ever learned under. She was an amazing 4th grade teacher. I must admit, I was a pretty good student. There was a history test I had to take one day in which I felt like I didn't need to study. When I received my test back, I was set back because there was so much red ink on my paper. The red ink on my test represented all the mistakes that I made on the test. When I looked at the top of my page, it had the letter...

I Want To Make You Smile

"May the words of my heart be pleasing to you, Oh Lord." Psalm 19:14 Growing up in my household, I knew that my parents took pride in providing, protecting, and preparing for my siblings and I.

We made it a point that we would represent them wherever we went.  God has given so much to us whether we want to acknowledge it or...

Paying it Forward in Service

"And if your Lord and Teacher has washed your feet, you should do the same for each other" - John 13:14 (Contemporary English Version) You are in a drive thru line at Starbucks one morning and your day did not start off well. You woke up on the "wrong side of the bed", clothes wrinkled, hair won't lay the way it needs to, and you are already 15 minutes late in leaving. Here is your order: Grande skinny latte, half soy milk half coconut, 2 shots of espresso, and 2 pumps of caramel (disclaimer: please do not try this drink, it does not exist). You pull up to the window getting ready to pay when the cashier tells you, "Your order...

Search Me, Lord

Look deep into my heart, God, and find out everything I am thinking. Don't let me follow evil ways, but lead me in the way that time has proven true." Psalm 139:23-24 (CEV) Each one of us has a desire to have just one person know our heart, mind, and soul. We want that one person to know how we think, how we feel, and how we act. There is a longing to have that one person who knows decisions that we contemplate in our brains, things we really want to say, and do what we want to do at times, even if the cost could be detrimental. Some of us seek that person through a spouse, a family member, a friend,...
