Nap Time with Grandma

Posted by JoLynn Burns on

"God forbid that I should sin against Him by failing to pray for you. " 1 Samuel 12:23 As a pre-school child, I spent my days at Grandma Katie's house while my mom taught first graders at our rural school.  Every day, just after lunch, the two of us would head out to the screen porch for...

Encouraging Words

Posted by Woods Watson on

Three times in the first chapter of Joshua God tells his new leader to be strong and courageous. Courage is a vital part of being used of God to make a difference for Him. Like Joshua, we need words of “encouragement”, (which means to put courage into), to overcome discouragement...

Where to Turn on Disaster Days

Posted by Claudia Wright on

On September 11, 2001, I busily did a Beth Moore Bible Study. In the study material she encouraged us to memorize Psalm 27:1 “The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?” I spent time that...

Fighting in Prayer

Posted by Ron Vining on

We are in a spiritual battle with the world, the flesh and the devil. I read a devotional recently that encouraged me to “fight like an Israelite.” This grabbed my attention.  The author went on to explain how Elisha prayed for his assistant to have his eyes opened so that he...

Prayer’s Potential

Posted by Woods Watson on

The longer I live, the more I realize that I am clueless about all that God wants to do through my prayers. I was raised to be polite and understated. It was rude to ask for big things, but it WAS okay if they were offered. Mrs. Long led our elementary school “Good News Club,” where...

I Love to Tell Stories

Posted by Deanne Groves on

I’m all about stories. I learn so much from the stories of others. Wisdom and values are more easily heard through the use of stories. I think that is why Jesus taught so much in parables. He recognized stories connected with people better than just a lecture. He used life experiences to...

God Works in All Things for Good

Posted by Ronnie Green on

God’s ideal way of changing us is to have us read the Bible to find out how we should live and then depend on his indwelling Spirit to enable us to do it. Unfortunately, most of us are stubborn, and we don’t change very easily. So God brings a tool to work on us, as in my case...

Attention, Please

Posted by Woods Watson on

It is amazing the lengths to which some people will go to get attention. Some sports fans dress up in garish outfits with their team’s colors; some skip the shirts altogether and paint those colors on their bare chests. Other people are caught up in the fashion trends to make sure that...

It is More than a Fun Run

Posted by Ronnie Green on

The Christian race is not a jog, but rather a demanding and grueling – sometimes agonizing – race. It is a marathon, and it takes a massive effort to finish strong. In Hebrews 12:1, we read, “Let us run the race that is before us and never give up.” Being a Senior Adult...

Useless Hands

Posted by Woods Watson on

Why do we say some of the things we say … especially when it comes to our hands? If we want to get married, we ask the woman’s daddy for “her hand in marriage” when we really want all of her. If we applaud a good deed or performance we call it, “giving them a...
