Last night our house got turned upside down! As we got ready for bed and decided to leave the living room we went to feed the kids new fish before we turned in for the night. When we took the top off of the aquarium and started crumbling food in the tank. I noticed that we had a dead fish, the one the kids had name "Fishy McFishy Face (don't ask me) and my house went in to complete turmoil a TRAGEDISTY as my two younger kids would call it, unstoppable crying and nose blowing...Read Full Post »

According to Webster’s Dictionary, husband is defined simply as “a male partner in a marriage.”
The word comes from the Old Norse word húsbóndi, “master of a house,” from hús “house” + bóndi, “occupier and tiller of the soil.” The original sense of the verb was “till or cultivate.” This shows us two concepts about husbands. First, he is the master of the house. Second, he occupies and t...Read Full Post »

Read the devotional this morning and wanted to share
Learn to Pray Like Jesus
“…Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples” (Luke 11:1).
Luke doesn’t identify the disciple who approached Jesus with this request. We can assume, however, that he was motivated by more than simply a desire to keep up with John the Baptist’s disciples. The unnamed disciple, like the other eleven, likely saw the power o...Read Full Post »

As I was talking with a friend this morning. The question was raised why God let’s things happen? Is it to teach us something, to break us to lean not on our own understanding, or to teach us to put complete trust in Him. As I was watching a episode of Little House on the Prairie and a question was asked.
“Why did God let my wife and daughter die?” — Mr. Edwards
Even today, I wouldn’t ha...Read Full Post »

You aren’t the mistakes you’ve made. You aren’t the labels that have been put on you. And you aren’t the lies the Enemy has tried to sell you. You are who God says you are.
You are a child of God.
You are the apple of God’s eye.
You are sought after.
You are more than a conqueror.
You are a new creation in Christ.
You are the righteousness of Christ....Read Full Post »

Sunday night as we were going through Experiencing God, we learned that God still speaks to us. We learned that He speaks to us as unique individuals, in unique ways for each one of us, and that When He speaks in a way that we KNOW that is God speaking and it is clear for us to understand.
I told the church that I have worked jobs where people have to yell to be heard over other sounds. Jobs where people get in your face and yell just cause they think that is the only ...Read Full Post »

This was my devotion tonight and I thought I would share some of it with you. Enjoy and watch your toes.
Like so many people, I struggle to pray. Even with good intentions, I’d often get distracted or even bored when I prayed. For way too long, I have tolerated faithless prayers but know God wants more for me, and I want to know Him more intimately.
We serve a God who can do more than we can ask or imagine. So it’s time to stop playing it saf...Read Full Post »
