Those Who Live A Godly Life In Christ Jesus Will Suffer Persecution
Published
A popular trend in a lot of churches has been the claim that when you become a Christian you will never have anymore problems in life. You'll prosper financially. You'll get the best job, the prettiest/handsomest spouse and your children will...
The Promise Of Spring
Published
Spring comes slowly up here in the upper midwest. Some of you have written about warming temperatures and things starting to grow. I've enjoyed that because I'm still looking at snow and ice. It reminds me that spring is somewhere, even if it...
Precious Teardrops
Published
I have to admit it...I'm a crier. I can tear up at the drop of a hat. I tear up when I read books, watch emotional movies, hear moving accounts, whatever. The theme can be sad, bitter-sweet, victory in the face of defeat, etc. It doesn't seem...
I Surrender All
Published
There's a beautiful hymn entitled "I Surrender All". The words of this song challenge me to examine my own life. It is easy to sing about surrendering everything to Jesus. It is another thing to actually do it. Mirriam-Webster's...
Build Up Your Defense!
Published
Nehemiah was extremely troubled. Although the temple had been rebuilt years earlier by the returning Jews, the walls of Jerusalem still lay in ruins. In ancient times, having a strong wall with strong gates was crucial. The purpose of the wall was to...
Daddy And The Cricket--An Earthly Lesson About Our Heavenly Father
Published
A three year old girl's scream pierced through the hot summer night. In an instant, her daddy awakened and raced to her bedside. Sobbingly, the child clung to him. She was so afraid! She cried again in terror at the sound of "the...
Are We Responsible For Our Own Actions?
Published
Lately I've been reading some blogs and comments in regards to whether or not God will issue punishment. I'd like to post the following for consideration. While comments are permitted, if you wish to present an opposing view, please do so on...
Elijah And The Prophets Of Baal--Part 2
Published
As was so aptly pointed out in the comments on Elijah and The Prophets Of Baal, the story didn't actually end where I closed. What follows is a clear example of Elijah being so much like us. He had just witnessed a powerful, dramatic manifestation...
Elijah And The Prophets Of Baal
Published
Every time I read this story my pulse quickens and I feel the power of God come down. If I am discouraged or feel weak, this story is a powerful reminder of the glory and power of God. While he may permit some things to last for a season according to...
The Piano...An Unexpected Gift Of Joy!
Published
This is just one of those little surprises you have to share with everyone. :) As many of you know, I had my first chemo treatment a week ago Friday. First I'd like to thank you for the prayers that have gone up on my behalf from my dear brothers...
Not Everything Which Claims To Be Of God Is Of God--Be Watchful!
Published
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus, We must always remember that just because something claims to be of God does not mean that it is of God. The Word of God warns us of this over and over again. We are told that we must take heed. Jesus himself...
But It's Just A Little...
Published
Last Wednesday/Thursday, I was down at the emergency room for nearly seven hours. I went to the emergency room for what I thought was something fairly minor. The only reason I'd been sent to the emergency room was because I called after 11:00 p.m....
When You Think You've Reached Your Limit...
Published
I have to admit, it is amazing what we really can endure. While we're in the midst of a horrible and painful situation, we may think "This is it. I can't go any further. I've reached my limit." Interestingly enough, even in the...
Precious In His Sight
Published
I stared angrily at my fourth grade school picture. I turned my head so that no one would see the tears filling my eyes. I was glad the bell was about to ring and I would be able to slip out the door and head for home. I could easily dodge my friends...
I Want To Go With!
Published
I realize my title is not written in proper English. The title is a dead giveaway that I am a Minnesotan of Scandinavian descent. The title is the battle cry of my childhood and I have to confess I still have that same battle cry today. The final...
This Little Boat Is Still Sailing On...
Published
This blog was first published here at CB a few days after my first chemo infusion which was on February 29, 2008. Due to the aggressive nature of my tumor, I had what is known as dose-dense chemotherapy meaning that I had it every two weeks rather...
My First Lesson In How To Forgive Others
Published
As a young child, all the children on the block played together except for the children in this large family. They lived at the very end of the block and the rest of us all lived at the other end. This family had five boys, I believe and one girl....
Comfort From The Word Of God
Published
So often, in the middle of the storm which is raging all around us, we are suddenly aware that God is right there beside us. Oh yes, we may have known that with our head. We can say things like, "God is always with me." and yet, if we're...
My God turns my darkness into light.
Published
Life was good. I felt strong. I'd been battered but I was still upright. I felt hopeful. I was waiting in anticipation of what would happen next. I even felt joyful because I knew I was in his hand. 1 I love you, O LORD, my strength. 2 The LORD is...
Give And It Shall Be Given Unto You
Published
The church we started to attend a little over a year ago, is a giving church. This was one of the things which attracted us to them when we moved into the community and were looking for a new church home. In the time that we've been there,...
His Eye Is On The Sparrow
Published
If we take the time to look back upon our lives, we can see the hand of God everywhere. I was thinking about this today after returning from a bi-monthly get-together with my "Sparrow Sisters". Early last September, I was looking at the...
Remember...We're In This Together
Published
The Israelites, after much complaining (they're so like us sometimes), had partaken of bread from heaven (manna) and had their thirst satisfied by water which God had provided from out of a rock. Their next adventure is pretty predictable....
Cancer-An Object Lesson On Sin
Published
Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the similarities between cancer and sin. I have a tendancy to look at situations in my physical life and apply them to my spiritual life and vice versa. I've done the same thing since my diagnosis back...
The Very First Time
Published
My thoughts are drifting back to when I was a young (or at least younger) :) wife and mother. It was one of those rare times when I was home alone. As the twilight fell, darkness seemed to fall upon my soul as well. From out of no where, the...
Nothing Between
Published
I stayed at school tonight until around 7:00 tonight trying to catch up on paperwork from the two weeks I was out as well as doing some lesson planning for the sub I'm having on Friday. As I was driving home in the frigid winter night (and I mean...
