KEEPING IT SIMPLE

“Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!” Romans 11:33 Known as “America’s Pastor,” God used Billy Graham to share the Gospel with millions around the world. Even from his earliest days of preaching in a tent, Reverend Graham had a knack for explaining the Gospel in the simplest of terms. As his ministry grew and his fame spread around the world, people would come in droves to hear him, packing out large arenas and open-air stadiums. Millions more would tune in by television, yet his[…]

SO CLOSE AT HAND

“For ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’.” Romans 10:13 Having accepted the Lord at a young age, my grandmother had been a Godly woman all of her life, but for my granddaddy that wasn’t the case. He was a “good man,” and a hard-working provider for his family, but he had a rough side too. He was known to have quite a temper along with a few other bad habits and tendencies as well, but all that changed one hot summer day.  He was pulling a wagon down a path when a freak accident took place. The[…]

But anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced’.”Romans 9:33  According to Wikipedia, “The Rock of Gibraltar, also known as the Rock, is a monolithic limestone promontory located in the British overseas territory of Gibraltar,near the southwestern tip of Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. It is 426 m (1,398 ft) high. Most of the Rock’s upper area is covered by a nature reserve, which is home to around 300 Barbary macaquesmonkeys. These macaques, as well as a labyrinthine network of tunnels, attract a large number of tourists each[…]

KEEP IT STRAIGHT

“Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you.”Proverbs 4:25 Riding mowers changed the game when it comes to mowing the lawn. If your yard is big enough to justify a riding mower, then you probably enjoy the experience. I guess it’s a guy thing, but for me I find being outdoors on a riding mower relaxing and enjoyable, especially when there’s a decent amount of yard to be mowed. A church I pastored years ago had some 10 acres of land, and even with a second mower going, it took quite a while to get it[…]

JUST LISTEN

“But all who listen to me will live in peace,untroubled by fear of harm.” Proverbs 1:33 At the time of writing this post, one of my daughters will soon be starting cosmetology school. Like her older sister who’s in the industry and has done really well, Courtney has also had a knack for hair and makeup for a good while and seemed to have no hesitation at all in knowing that this was the career path she wanted to pursue.  Although she’s looking forward to the training, in a recent conversation she expressed some dread and apprehension in taking the[…]
