PRAYER

Many of us learned about prayer at our mother’s knees, and additionally beside our bed.  That act became “mighty handy” when we found our fragility in some unexpected experiences.  That old saying: “There are no atheists in fox holes” becomes a revolutionary experience for many when the “chips are down”, as we face the unexpectedContinue reading “PRAYER”

FULLY CONVINCED

Shortly after placing my faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I was ready to take on anybody and everybody about my discoveries as I read the Scriptures. Some of the things were quite simple to understand, but some of them did not seem to make sense with other things I read.  I wasContinue reading “FULLY CONVINCED”

UNDER HIS WINGS

This evening, I was laying on my bed listening to the recorded music of my wife who is “at home” in Heaven; she has been there almost four and a half years.  I had been reading from the Bible that I gave her many years ago.  She had underlined many verses of Scripture that hadContinue reading “UNDER HIS WINGS”

BACK WHEN

The “Old Timer” said: “Ted, I have a box of books for you!”  It was “boxes”… and tucked in there was one by W.H. Rogers, from which I quote what I believe to be a writing of Dr. W. Leon Tucker. “Christ is the Center and the Circumference of the Scripture.  He is the LifeContinue reading “BACK WHEN”

FULLY ARMED

Unaware of our enemy, or the armor that they utilize is usually a guarantee that we are about to lose the battle.  Preparations are necessary!  A large amount of Christians “miss the boat” on the victory that awaits them when faltering in that particular arena. The war front lines can be savagely fought, but behindContinue reading “FULLY ARMED”

PREPARE

I am certain that you have noticed how people make preparation for different events that are forthcoming.  Some do it meticulously, (Like our daughter) and then there are those like my sister (just throw it in the suitcase, stump on it and everything is A-OK.)  Take the smile off of your face when you decideContinue reading “PREPARE”

DEAR OLD JOB

Few are they, who cannot in one way or the other, identify with Job.  If I do not have the identical experiences, I have encountered some extended times of physical, mental or emotional frustrations that I thought would never end.  Worse than anything was that in trying to identify the reasons behind them; I foundContinue reading “DEAR OLD JOB”

PLENARY VERBAL INSPIRATION
