The Fear of the Lord, or the Lack Of

Here is a video from Richard Owen Roberts about the lack of the fear of God in the pulpit and in the church in general. It all boils down to one thing: pride. This one grabs at my heart.

Consider it Joy

I was reading with Cinderella one day when we heard a loud crash.  It sounded like glass shattering.  We have a cat, so once in a while we do have things come crashing down when she's not quite as agile as she thinks she is.  We took a quick look around and didn't see anything,… Continue reading Consider it Joy

Could You Outrun Goliath?

At “six cubits and a span,” Goliath stood over nine feet tall, using a conservative 18-inch cubit. Scripture demonstrates his strength by cataloging the weight of his armaments, including a 5,000-shekel (125-pound) coat of mail.1 No wonder he was the champion of Gath! He was big and strong, but was he fast? Source: Could You… Continue reading Could You Outrun Goliath?

Suffering Produces Endurance

Thank you Christian for nominating me for a 3-Day Quote Challenge.  Here are three quotes I'd like to share with my readers. "Donald Trump will be our next president."  This statement came from my competitive friend, Mr. G.,  in September 2015.  At that point, I wasn't convinced that Donald Trump still wouldn't drop out of… Continue reading Suffering Produces Endurance

Reflecting on Hope

As the year comes to a close and we are about to embark on a new year, we often take time to reflect on the past year. I have only done a little reflecting as there is still time left in the current year--so it seems. I'm sure the new year will be here before I know it.
