All Things New

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) I’ve heard it recently said that, “Every new level in life you aspire to requires a different you.” At eighteen I was tired of being a quitter. I hate to admit how many jobs I had had by my eighteenth birthday. It seemed that if it wasn’t easy I wanted no part of it. And, after graduating high school and embarking on a sales carrier path I was already tired of it, so I[…]

Her First True Love

Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again and again. Anyone who drinks the water I give will never thirst—not ever. The water I give will be an artesian spring within, gushing fountains of endless life.” John 4:14 (The Message) She was the “queen of failed relationships.” She knew it and so did everyone in town. That’s why she came to get her water in the heat of the day to avoid all the morning well gatherers. She had felt their glairs and heard the gossip. She had been through five marriages and the guy she was[…]

“My Rowdy Friends”

When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 At first glance it wouldn’t seem like I had much in common with these guys. They’re avid hunters, I haven’t hunted since I was a teenager. They’re anglers and although I enjoy fishing, I’m not that good at it. They can fix anything, while I don’t own any tools. So what’s the connection you may ask? It’s Jesus and His Grace. Now please don’t misunderstand, they’re no[…]

You’re Received

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3 Recently my youngest daughter and I were putting out concert posters. We were walking in and out of business in the downtown area, as we had done in the past, putting posters up in windows. With that neighborly small town feel and charm that we enjoy so much here, business owners are always eager to help. As we walked in one particular new business I introduced myself to the shop owner and asked if[…]

Be Quiet

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Psalm 46:10 As this new potential client sat across from my desk, I knew right away we were meeting that day for more than just business. We both knew it was His business first as we began talking about God’s goodness and sharing our stories with each other. I love hearing peoples stories. Everyone has a story and I always realize after hearing someone share their story, just how unique and awesome they are. I find that if I[…]

Take It Personal

2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Psalm 23:2-3 It was a beautiful sunny afternoon in Eastern NC as I headed out for another visit to Goose Creek State Park. The afternoon couldn’t have been any better as I set out to do a complete round on the wooded walking trails. My heart was full of anticipation. I was asking Him for an encounter….“Father, I’m asking you to restore my soul on this walk.” Just[…]

When He Don’t Move That Mountain

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 “No” is just not a favorite word for most people. Nothing makes a toddler push out their bottom lip and tears run down their face faster than the word “No.” As a “Believer” and a “Faith person,” I’m called to believe and not doubt, and when doubt tries to creep in I’m to believe harder, deeper and stronger. But, what do we do when the thing we are believing Him so[…]

Don’t Miss that Sunset

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT) Recently I finished my work day early and decided to head out to Goose Creek State Park, just a few miles up the road from where I live. My walk was so peaceful and serene as I took in the beauty of that late after noon sunlight glistening on the rippling waves of the Pamlico River. There’s nothing like talking to your Father and enjoying[…]

Sunday’s Coming

39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days.” 40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” John 11:39-40 It’s said that disappointment comes when we expect one thing, and get another. If you’ve been on this earth for very long, then I’m sure you’ve had your share of disappointment. Yes, there were times when you thought something was going to work out[…]

Good Friday

Isaiah 53:4-5 (NKJV) Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted.  But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. Some years ago our family car broke down at my office. There was nothing I could do to get it to start, so I knew it would need to be towed to a repair shop. Times where tight, so a repair bill and a towing bill just weren’t in[…]
