Rejoice

Romans 12:15 (NIV) Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. This is a great season. A season to be happy. We give and receive presents. We get to be around family and enjoy many other traditions. As much as we need to take the time to appreciate the good times, I think it is…

Finish the Job!

If you are around me much at all, you know I like to tinker (tear up is probably more accurate) with my vehicles. Last week I had another opportunity. The temperature gauge on “The Beast” began to go haywire indicating the engine was running hot. “The Beast” is what my girls call my 200,000 mile,1999…

Created For Good Works

Ephesians 2:8-10 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that…

Tis The Season

Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day has always been a special time for me. I’m sure it is for most of us. We love the traditions, the time with family, the joy and the beauty of the season. This is the time when we focus on so many of the blessing we have received. We love…

And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. (Heb. 11:6 NAU) Do you have a strong conviction of sin? If you are in Christ, do you have a strong assurance of forgiveness?…

Thank God

But God gave us a Spirit not of fear but of power and love and self control 2 Timothy 1:7 When we count our blessings, when we realize how much we have and how blessed we are. We can’t  help, but to be thankful. As a husband,  I am thankful when my wife does something…

Relentless

This past week, our family was at the beach, and for some reason, we had the entire beach to ourselves. Maybe it was because a cold front moved to Destin, Florida, and the sand was as cold as ice. It didn’t stop the Pruitts from enjoying our family and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The…

Put Some Air In It

My toolbox – In my toolbox I have this nice little tire plugging kit. It is one of the most important tools I have. In the kit is a tool that pulls the nail out of the tire. It has a tool to clean the edges. And it has a tool to insert the new…
