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[…]

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[…]

Put It All Together

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:19 I’ll never forget his brokenness as he sobbed and cried in my office. In his line of work he was supposed to be strong, rugged and tough, but not on this day. His wife, whom he loved, had just cleaned out her stuff and took off and he thought his whole world was coming to an end. I didn’t know what to say or how to console him, so I just sat there with him as he broke down. In the silence God gave me a[…]

Full Circle

He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1:4 Have you ever found yourself in a place where God used you to encourage, or help someone through something that you yourself had walked through? I’m sure you have, because that’s how it works. It’s after you’ve “come through” it yourself and gained a new perspective, a newfound faith, and learned things you never knew before, that you can help someone “go through” as well. On[…]

Collards and Clorox

Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8 I’ll never forget the first time I walked into a little dinner in the town in which I live that’s known for there “down home country cooking.”  Instantly the aroma of two smells hit me at the same time, collards and Clorox. Now I know that combination may not do much for your apatite, but it took me back to a place of fond memories from my childhood. The distinct smell of those collards cooking, along with the[…]

Face It

But – When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, 5 he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. Titus 3:4-7 Let’s face it, there’s a Simon and a Peter in all of us. There’s that “best side” of ourselves we want everyone to see that represents the Peter in us.  The name Peter means, “rock” which is the steady, honest, trustworthy and best representation of who we strive to be. Then, there’s the[…]

Leave It Behind

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. Philippians 3:13 You’ve heard the saying, “It’s impossible to move forward while looking backward.” It’s true, and Elisha knew it. After Elijah came out in the middle of his “field of the familiar” he knew that in order to make the full commitment he’d have to burn those plows and roast those oxen. Farming was probably all he had ever known and although there’s nothing wrong with farming, Elisha knew in that moment[…]

The Answers

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. Jeremiah 33:3 Have you ever noticed that answers to questions you may have never received answer for, often come when you answer? That’s certainly happened in my life. There’ve been times when I knew God was calling me, or leading me, in a certain direction and when I answered that call, it brought answers to questions I had never had answers for before. I remember it was in high school when I started developing an interest in radio. I[…]

The Plan

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 For Elisha it most likely started out just like any other routine day as a farmer. There he was out in the field, doing what he had most likely done for a long time. It’s obvious that there had been a real measure of success in his life as a farmer by the simple fact that he had twelve teams of oxen plowing in the field and he[…]

Fear Not

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 In 1933 at his inaugural address to the nation, newly elected President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt set a new tone for the future to a fearful nation. The famous words from that speech, “The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself,” will forever be etched in the heart of American History. This statement brought a new glimmer of hope to a nation that had found itself paralyzed with fear on the[…]
