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

All of God’s creation fascinates me. From time to time different things will draw my specific attention.   This past week it was faces. We all have two eyes, two ears and one nose with two nostrils.  From a distance it can be pretty hard to distinguish the faces from one another. But when we…

Do You Want To Be A Preacher

1 Samuel 3:19-20 Thus Samuel grew and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fail. All Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was confirmed as a prophet of the Lord. (NASB) What does it mean to be a preacher? In all honesty to be a preacher is not…

On behalf of our family, we all want to express our thanks to you for all that you have done for us in the loss of our Mother, Ann Spivey. Your prayers, the cards, the flowers and plants, your visits, and the many personal expressions of sympathy you have expressed to us have meant so…

Teach Your Kids To Work

Genesis 2:15 “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” (NIV) It is interesting that when God created man, he put him in the garden and gave him everything that he could ever need! And yet, he said to him “work…
