God Works the Night Shift!

Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4 The other day I heard a preacher say “God works the night shift!” and I thought how true that is! I have not had a full night’s sleep in many months. It has been frustrating to say the least. I go to sleep right away, but every night, somewhere between 1am and 3 am, I wake up. I am awake for at least one hour, though it is usually for two to three hours;...

Seek Him Early Each Day!

Spending time alone with God is one way you can get to know Him and know that He is good! Seeking Him early each day will cause your day to be blessed and prosperous. I remember, years ago, when I was a single mom and a business owner, never seeming to have the time to spend with the Lord. I was extremely busy, yet still wanted to get to know Him better. My bed felt too good in the morning to get up extra early, but if I waited until evening I...

Hearing God’s Voice

John 10:27 says,  “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”  With all the voices competing for our attention – people, media, TV, the devil, even our own voice – how can we tell which one is God’s? We have the complete bible, which is the inspired Word of God.  “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in...

“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you.” 2 Timothy 1:6 What are you to do when it seems nothing is going right? When there is no light at the end of the tunnel? When it appears that your hopes and dreams are never going to be realized? You are to do as Timothy was instructed to do: Stir yourself up! What does it mean to stir oneself up? In the above scripture, the word “stir” in the Greek...

Be Like the Bulldog!

“Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.” Mark 5:25-27 A reason we don’t see answers to prayer is because we give up too soon. I think of the word “tenacity”. It means to stick with it, no matter what....

Cleaning Up the Messes in Our Lives

When my kids were little, invariably most every night one of them spilled their glass of milk or juice.  Who cleaned it up?  Mom, of course.  When they got older and made a mess, who cleaned it up?  They did, maybe with some help from Mom.  Now that they are grown, they usually have to clean up all by themselves. What about YOUR messes?  Who cleans them up?  There are three kinds of messes in our lives.  Messes we make all by ourselves. Messes...

God is NOT Disappointed in You!

I don’t know about you, but when I was a little girl the thought of disappointing my dad was unbearable. My father is a disciplined man of strict German descent who values excellence in performance. While it is always good to strive for excellence, how many know that little girls and little boys are going to fall short now and then? For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. – Romans 3:23 NKJV Whenever I would disappoint my dad I...
