    The Interesting Thing About Today

    The wonderful truth about this date in history isn’t the famous events that may have happened, or the famous name that was born though I like to look up those little facts. The interesting thing about today isn’t about them, or what I may or may not have planned. The interesting thing about today is that we have been blessed to experience it. As a Christian I would almost guarantee all of our minds in reading that first paragraph went to a very special passage. This is the day that The Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad. Glad because He blessed us all, not only with…

    Sketch Charles Spurgeon And The Story Of One Convert

    I read once of a cold winter Sunday service where the weather was so bad even the Pastor couldn’t make it. The one Elder there had never preached before or after that day. The sermon was far from eloquent, but one convert came to the altar, they said his name was Charles Spurgeon.

    Father’s Day 2023

    In the mind of God, He didn’t only choose the Father and Mother for the child, He paired the child with the Father and Mother. Ashley and I were taught, not only to pray for a child, but to pray for the child He wanted us to have. By now most know our journey as we are blessed to be parents of our Nicholas through Adoption. He is the son we were supposed to have, we see it in many ways that we could not have planned for. I am not a perfect Dad, I make plenty of normal mistakes, but I’m so thankful for a perfect Heavenly Father Who…

    Pentecost, Memorial Day, And Bohan

    Today is both Pentecost Sunday, and Memorial Day weekend. We know that Pentecost is both the birthday of the Church, and the Jewish feast celebrating harvest. The interesting thing about the word Pentecost is that it is composed of two words. One root literally refers to the striping of a wound. Memorial Day we as Americans reap rhe harvest of freedom sown by the sacrifices of brave soldiers throughout our history. The Church was born due to the Sacrifice and Resurrection of our Savior Christ Jesus. In the border of the tribe of Judah, was a stone dedicated to the Reubinite Bohan, his name meaning thumb. Commentators believe he was…

    He Saw Her

    27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. 28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. (John 19:27-28) I admit to never noticing verse twenty eight this way before. Perhaps we were so amazed by the statements on either side of it. We’ve addressed Jesus’ care for His mother, and His thirst, but I’ve missed this. He considered taking care of His Mom’s future as part of His prophetic course. In the midst of completing the work of salvation, taking both our sins and…

    Still True

    Isaiah 53:9 (ESV)9 And they made His grave with the wicked and with a rich man in His death, although He had done no violence, and there was no deceit in His mouth. Isaiah 53:10 (ESV)10 Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush Him;He has put him to grief; when His soul makes an offering for guilt, He shall see His offspring; He shall prolong His days; the will of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. As Christ’s body lay in the grave, the Disciples must have been battling with confusion, grief, and fear. Yet, while they did not understand, God knew something, it was still…

    Seek His Face

    Revelation 20:11 (KJV)11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. Psalms 139:8 (KJV)8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. Revelation 20:11 may seem a strange verse to bring up the week of Easter, but it is not very different from something David said in the 139th Psalm. The Psalmist began by saying God searched him and knew him. In verse eight he said if somehow I could get to Heaven or go…

    Beside Myself Twice – A Story About Making Decisions

    Often we wrestle not with our choices, but ourselves. The following is a story about that, dreams, and God’s Will. A young actor named Irwin sat on the side of his bed. He had wrestled all week with what to do. If he chose wrong, it could cost him everything. If he chose right, he could still lose it all. He had barely slept all week, and didn’t expect it to be any better tonight. He would have been surprised how easily he drifted off, had he been awake to realize it. He was gone before he knew it. His mind drifted from dream to dream, with a hazy connection…

    An Example And A Dream

    Before the famous words “I have a dream” we’re spoken, Dr King’s Father dreamed. I was privileged to read his Father’s biography many years ago. I was blessed to read of a man who began with very little, and didn’t only succeed, he helped others to do so. As a son then I could understand the inspiration of a great father. As a dad now I am reminded of the important responsibility of being an inspiration. We do what is right because it is pleasing to God, and because it is right. We also should be mindful that what we do is a roadmap for our children. Whether it’s an…

    What A Beautiful Sound

    I’m listening to a happy little boy as he imagines some adventure filled with heroes. There was a yesterday when we dreamed of these moments, hoping that one day this quiet house would be filled with the sounds of our now. A couple of things happened today to remind us of how miraculous the lives we live are. Through no merit of our own we are blessed to be the parents of a precious, healthy, handsome, smart, little boy. We’re far from perfect, but we never want to take these things for granted. We are not only parents, we are Nicholas’ parents. God didn’t just give us a child, He…
