Are You Anxious As Well?

1 Peter 5:7 “casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” (NASB) Many people suffer from mental health disorders. Anxiety is one of the major disorders. When people talk to me about their anxiety problems, they feel ashamed to feel that way. They feel less for having that problem, they feel like…

Children in the Scriptures

Our new little blessing, Sara, was born November 9, 2017. Today I’m thinking about the things that God says relation to children, babies and our relationship to Him. Here are a few that have come to mind. 2 Corinthians 2:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the…

Message From Elders

Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain,  9 but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach.  11 Women must likewise…

A Few Days In Baja Mexico

Colossians 2:6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Thank You

Today I want to take time to thank the congregation of the Lord’s church at Riverchase.

Take Time To Pray With…

Miller, the Sheep

Campouts are tons of fun and also tons of work, but we were all greeted at the Milliron’s farm this past weekend with a friendly fellow, named Miller. Miller is the Milliron’s only sheep. Leif whispered to me that Miller isn’t too bright so I immediately became attached to my new sheep friend. Of course,…

Has The Lord Made You Wait?

Lamentations 3:22-25 The Lord’s loving kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I have hope in Him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, To the person who seeks Him. (NASB) Lamentations is an amazing book and an amazing chapter to read when you have the feeling that the Lord has…

Faces
