Tag Archives: Prayer

Prayer is talking to God. Just that simple. The power of prayer is not knowing about it…it’s in doing it! God still answers prayer…but do we still pray. Jesus taught His disciples, “when you pray” not if you pray. Prayer connects believers with God and the resources of heaven. What a privilege we have to pray.

Is Anything Too Hard For ME?

Is there anything too hard for God? I am so thankful that the truth is, nothing is too hard for God.

It’s interesting, that’s a nice word for it, to take a walk with me. I’m  sorta like the little boy in Bil Keane’s “Family Circus” comic strip. I have a hard time staying focused on one thing. Everything intrigues me! I’m child like, but not childish. That’s a nice way to put it, but sometimes, […]

Inconvenience or Opportunity?

Kids on skateboards reminded me, love is patient

 They were on skateboards… little guys…two of them one was maybe 8 and the other looked to be about 6 years old. It looked like they were mostly talking… but it was where they choose to have their conversation that annoyed me… They were jawing right in the middle of the road. I was in […]

Let Me Comfort You

I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chickens beneath her wings but you wouldn't let me.

Comfort You? Console. Comfort. Support. Quiet Well-being   There are beautiful pictures of being comforted all around us. He was headed to his garden when her clucks stopped his wide stride. He had frightened a turkey hen with her chicks that were feeding on the hillside. Motionless, he watched the chicks scurry under their mama’s wings. […]

Candy Cane Prayer

I want to share a table scape with a Candy Cane Prayer Christmas message with you. A beautiful table with a beautiful message, a winning combination for sure. I’ve been putting up Christmas decorations. Designing table scapes are my favorite thing to do in the whole world, well, except preaching and playing with my grandkids […]

Where do you turn when you are discouraged?

Satan has desired to sift you as wheat, but I prayed for you that your faith will not fail.

Where do you turn when you are discouraged? Where do go when circumstances pile in on you? What do you do when your son/daughter is rebellious–seriously rebellious? Where do you look when your marriage is in trouble? What do you do when your baby has a fever and is throwing up and nothing seems to […]

A Dusty Road…A Rock…And a still small voice.

while walking to my grandma's house I discovered prayer is a conversation, not a dialogue.

She only lived three blocks away. We lived at house number 308 and she lived at 415, straight down the dirt road, beside the church I had attended my whole life.  I thought I was grown, but I was  probably 7 years old. You can imagine how long ago that was. I bring that up […]

YOU SHOULD NEVER…EVER! And you’ll laugh too.

make your people always want to obey you. See to it that their love for you never changes.

There are some things that just should never happen–NEVER! And Diane Daniel, my laughing friend, brings a few of them into focus for us as only Diane can do. 1. You should never take your cat to a dog show… 2. You should never wear a t-shirt with the words “Worlds #1 Terrorist” to the […]

WHEN THE CHILDREN PRAYED BY GUEST AUTHOR ANGEL SIMS

Jesus still heals today and sometimes he uses pint-sized saints.

Angel shared this story with me last September and I knew it was one I just had to share with you. It is a powerful story and the best part is, it TRUE! Angel is an amazing lady! And her story is fabulous! In February 2000, after too many asthma attacks to count we were […]
