BLESS GOD IN THE CONGREGATIONS

As one searches the Scriptures daily, so a verse of the Word seems to come alive.  Its contents seem to say, “You did not notice me when you last read me, but today it appears that you finally were impacted with a deep sense of appreciation.   What a magnificent application of loving rebuke!  How didContinue reading “BLESS GOD IN THE CONGREGATIONS”

KNEE-MAIL

Traffic was at a “crawl”; “the good old days” of driving up Grand Avenue with one lane in each direction without much by way of interruption, has long gone.  This snail pace because of development all around us has become a gigantic problem that worsens each day.  Since boredom set in, I began reading allContinue reading “KNEE-MAIL”

ONE YEAR LATER

The media is working every way possible to convince us how to vote in the forth coming election. Personally, I have retained that old fashioned manner of responding to the question of:  “How or for who have you planned to vote?” “That is my business and mine alone!”  Admittedly, I have some things for whichContinue reading “ONE YEAR LATER”

A HOUSE OF PRAYER

It is noticeable!  Many of our churches have acquired new names.  We are left with the challenge of determining if they are Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Charismatic, Independent, Presbyterian or just what! Once we attend a Service or two, we soon discover the type of program or programs they “offer”, and the type of music orContinue reading “A HOUSE OF PRAYER”

Just suppose!  You had been married for only seven years when God called your husband home.  You could be very angry, discouraged, depressed, or one bitter lady.  However, you could go the other direction, reach eighty four, and look back at what God had allowed you to do; you had “never left the temple, servingContinue reading “ANNA”

HOW RICH I AM

When in Bermuda Commercial School, we had a teacher, an old fashioned Methodist, who was intent on teaching us a subject beyond accounting, etc… She began each day with Scripture and prayer and required that we memorize some of those verses. Admittedly, at that stage of my life I was not “into” such thinking. ShortlyContinue reading “HOW RICH I AM”

HAVE YOU PRAYED ABOUT IT?

So, you have been faced with difficult decisions; have we not all experienced such encounters in our lives. It is just a part of living here on the place called earth! Some of decisions maybe health related; others may involve financial decisions. Then there are individuals, especially in our modern society, facing re-location to anotherContinue reading “HAVE YOU PRAYED ABOUT IT?”

A PROMISE OF POWER

“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever – the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” John 14:16-17 In John 14, Jesus madeContinue reading “A PROMISE OF POWER”
