A Trip Through Proverbs – #1 – Introduction

I love the book of Proverbs.  It is probably the clearest book in the entire Bible in regards to understanding.  It comes right out and tells you how you should and shouldn’t act, what you should and shouldn’t do.  There is so much wisdom in there, but I’ve not heard many pastors preach about it on SundayContinue reading “A Trip Through Proverbs – #1 – Introduction”

2 Timothy 1:7 – Be a fearless Christian

I struggle at times with sharing publicly my beliefs.  Sure I write this blog, but it’s easy to hide behind this computer screen and not have to face anyone directly.  I’ve spoken in front of groups and classes at our church, but despite my discomfort speaking in front of crowds, that wasn’t even that badContinue reading “2 Timothy 1:7 – Be a fearless Christian”

Meditate on the Word of God – Psalm 119

As I was reading this morning, I came across a chapter in a book I’m working through about how important positive thinking is to our mental, spiritual and in fact physical being.  In that reading, one of the precepts in making sure you have positive thinking throughout the day is to meditate on the WordContinue reading “Meditate on the Word of God – Psalm 119”

Expect an Answer – James 1:5-7

When you pray, do you ask God for something.  Perhaps an answer to a problem you’re having, or for a blessing you may need?  Do you ask God a question on why God has allowed something to happen? Have you asked him about what you are supposed to do next in a situation?  I’m sureContinue reading “Expect an Answer – James 1:5-7”

Bible Study Minute – Psalm 118:24 – Today is the day

Today is the day that God has given us.  There are days that are easy to rejoice in and there are days that rejoicing is the last thing on our minds.  But let’s remember what we learn in this psalm, This is the day the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad inContinue reading “Bible Study Minute – Psalm 118:24 – Today is the day”
