Moving Forward

The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” The LORD said to Moses, “Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward. Exodus 14:14-15 (ESV)   I was reminded this week of an important saying of the Lord in Exodus. I believe the Lord does want us…

Teachable

Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD. 2 Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart– 3 they do no wrong but follow his ways. 4 You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed. 5 Oh, that…

A Good Man

Luke 5:24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the man who was paralyzed—“I say to you, rise, pick up your bed and go home.” (ESV) Why would this man want to see Jesus? My assumption was the obvious state of his physical body. He…

Golden Age Banquet

This is the week of the Golden Age Banquet. There is no way to calculate how many hours of script writing, revising, rewriting, practices, planning and preparation that have gone into what will take place Saturday night for our Livewires!. Mary Poppins was a big box office hit years ago, and there is no doubt…

Vacations

When I was a child, often times our family vacations were going camping for a week. Many of my favorite childhood memories come from those trips. Swinging on vines, roasting marshmallows, hearing the crickets and fighting off raccoons are all etched into my mind. One favorite family memory is a night we were camping and a terrible…

The Lord’s My Shepherd

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you…

Today

Over Spring Break, my family and I got to spend one day at the beach. Well, a few hours is more realistic. We prepared well since we only had a very short time. Sandcastle tools, swimsuits, towels, sunscreen, hats, and beach chairs. It was a very overcast day so I quickly put sunscreen on my…

Talent

Riverchase has talent!  After witnessing the LTC Celebration on Sunday I am convinced that Riverchase has an abundance of talent. The singing voices were great, the puppets were clear in their humorous message and the skits were full of great acting!  Our youth are full of energy, enthusiasm and joy of sharing the message of…

LTC Weekend

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. (ESV) Two weekends ago I had one of the greatest experiences ever along with a massive group of parents and volunteers. We traveled to Mobile for Leadership Training for Christ (LTC). Each…

Blessed

Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.” (Rev. 14:13 NIV) A blessing all would wish to claim, but a blessing limited by the Giver…
