  • Dress for success

    It finally turned cold outside. And my dog doesn’t understand that taking her for a walk is no longer as simple as grabbing the leash and walking out the door. What makes it worse is that Molly (our dog) is part Husky, it seems the colder it gets, the more she likes it.

  • When opportunity knocks, it could be God

    Opportunity is all around us. We seek it, seize it, lose it, and sometimes just miss opportunity. How are you handling opportunity, and when available to you, are you able to recognize it?

    Opportunity, just like everything else in the world, was, and is, created by the same One who created the world itself. God creates opportunity for us all, and in different ways. If we look to scripture, we find many examples of opportunity and how it was used to fulfill God’s perfect plan.

  • Lessons from a soldier’s prayer

     

    The following prayer was found folded up in the pocket of a Confederate soldier at the end of the Civil War:

    “I asked God for strength, that I might achieve; I was made weak, that I might learn to obey.

    “I asked for health, that I might do greater things; I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.

    “I asked for riches, that I might be happy; I was given poverty, that I might be wise.

  • Getting toes stepped on can help

    We’ve just about all heard the old saying, “I don’t mean to step on your toes, but…” I’ve had my toes stepped on quite a few times, mostly at church, and it hurts. I’ll admit that I don’t like it, because to get rid of the pain, I have to correct what caused the pain to begin with. Have you ever been in a church service that just really stepped on your toes?

  • Living a year in faith

    New Year’s Day has passed, but I am reminded that every day is a new day, a new opportunity to re-imagine the future. And it is always exciting to seek out God’s vision and plan for our lives and for His Church. It is exciting to consider that even our greatest dreams are tiny compared to what God can really do.

    The story is told about an ambitious mother who once took her young son to hear a piano concert by a master piano player. The young boy had been taking lessons but was not as excited about a future in the instrument as his mother was.

  • How amazing is grace

    Few songs are more recognizable to Christians than “Amazing Grace.” It is a fixture in many worship services and funerals. But what exactly is grace, and why is it so amazing? Sadly, some Christians struggle to answer those questions. All they seem to know about grace is that it is something they can fall from. Therefore, it is important that we take a close look at this topic.
