Remember Who Is In Control...No Matter What!
Published
I looked dismally at the results from the blood tests I had to have every two weeks prior to chemo. I could look at them online on my electronic medical chart and I had printed out the current one as well as the previous ones and brought them with me...
Get Your Regular Exams By The Holy Spirit
Published
I'm fast coming up on the one year anniversary of that fateful mammogram which revealed I had breast cancer (November 21). That means I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of getting the news . Try as you might, with these anniversaries...
If We Truly Love Jesus
Published
When I was a child, my mother was involved in Children's Ministries. I remember one particular story she used to share. An elderly woman is reading a book and she comes across a poem which goes something like this: If you truly love Jesus, Then do...
Joy In The Midst Of Darkness
Published
It was 1984. I was heading down to Iowa for a family get together and feeling a bit anxious. One of my grandmother's sisters had been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) a few years earlier. I'd heard that her condition was...
The Precious Gift Of Teardrops
Published
"What do you mean I don't have enough tears? I stared at the ophthalmologist for a moment. I'd gone in for a routine eye exam. Right before starting chemo I had noticed I had developed a bad habit of pulling off my uh...bifocals in order...
There Are Families And Then There Are Families
Published
A few years ago, a co-worker asked me if I was going anywhere over a long weekend. I happened to mention I was going out of state for a family get-together. She expressed her sympathy. I had to tell her that I was looking forward to it. In my case...
Pay Attention And Follow The Leader
Published
Last winter, one of our middle school students died from influenza. As a result of that, there has been a push to get as many children immunized as possible this year. Our school, understandably, was selected as an immunization site. Parents could...
Do It All In The Name Of The Lord Jesus!
Published
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 (NIV) As I read this verse this morning, I started to think about what my world would look like if I...
Remember God Provides, Even In Times Like These
Published
This morning I was standing to the left of the platform with another couple. Other teams of two to three people were spread out across the front of the church. The 11:00 service was concluding and the prayer teams had just come forward to pray with...
Jesus Christ Is Our Life!
Published
Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God's right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and...
Focusing On That Which Really Matters
Published
I'm learning to try to focus on that which really does matter in life. Oh, there's the things which I always thought were important but that doesn't necessarily mean they really are. To tell you the truth, I don't have a whole lot of...
This Princess Is Wearing Boxing Gloves
Published
Wham! It hit me just the other day while I was in the middle of making lunch. I started to shake and cried out to my Father immediately. I stopped shaking and sent out an alert for prayer. Just the very act of crying out to the Father and requesting...
Everybody Do Your Job-Some Second Grade Wisdom
Published
I've never really thought about it before but in some respects, my second grade class is a lot like the church. My second grade class is diverse. So is the church. My second grade class is made up of many different individuals with their own ways...
Let All That I Am Praise The LORD!
Published
I've been browsing through blogs and praise reports the past few days and I am simply rejoicing. I have to tell you I can scarcely contain myself as I read about what God is doing. I'm not talking about things He did two or three thousand...
Thoughts On A Blustery Winter-Like Night
Published
The cold front slammed into our town just as my husband and I arrived at church. We knew it was coming so we were prepared for the onslaught. Snowflakes filled the air and my husband started to rehearse his "It's too cold here and I can't...
Thank You For The Dark Paths
Published
The window in my van was broken. It was stuck open about an inch or so. It wouldn't budge. I parked it in the garage and the next morning was greeted by rain. I sighed and found a roll of duct tape. I carefully taped over the gap before heading...
Why Are You Running This Race?
Published
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us....
Living In God's Place For The Moment
Published
It is so easy to look at the lives of others and think, "If only I were living where they are." Common sense tells us the grass only appears greener on the other side of the fence but we're actually pretty short-sighted when it comes to...
You Are Surrounded By God And Sin Survivors
Published
Mother's Day-May 11, 2008 I'd had chemo less than 48 hours before. I knew that by late afternoon or into the early evening, I'd be pretty much confined to bed and writhing with phantom nerve pain. Nevertheless, I was on a mission and I was...
A Time Of Connection--Woman To Woman
Published
I went to Women of Faith this weekend and it was awesome! I try to go every year and if you are ever able to attend a WOF conference, I strongly encourage you to do so. This is one of the things I do to get filled up for the upcoming year. There is...
God Understands All Of Our Fears
Published
I shifted uncomfortably in my chair and dropped my gaze. My oncologist waited patiently. I played with my fingers for a moment and then sighed. I looked up. He still didn't say a word. He just watched me carefully. I had a feeling he knew exactly...
It's Not Because I Said So, It's Because God Said So
Published
It's a scenario I've seen over and over again. Parents faithfully take their children to church. Their children are involved in every activity the church has to offer. They go on mission trips. They talk about God. They appear to be the...
Through The Eyes Of A Child
Published
We crammed onto a school bus last Wednesday. There were 54 seven and eight year olds and 15 adults. Our bus was packed with two second grade classes. The other two classes would be going the next day. It had been cold and rainy the day before but...
Our Hope Must Be Built On Christ
Published
Over the past few days, an old hymn has been going around and around in my head. The Solid Rock Words by Edward Mote, Lyrics by William B. Bradbury 1. My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the...
The Lord God Our Healer!
Published
A few years ago, a cousin who is about my age suffered a stroke around Christmastime. We were all stunned as she was still in her late 30's at the time. Imagine our shock and then fear as she suffered another stroke and then another one. This kept...
