Are You Willing? Are you or I really willing to do whatever God wants us to do? Really willing …. whatever …. anything …? If He called you to be a missionary (or wife to one), an evangelist’s wife, Pastor’s wife, etc….Would you answer the call? If He called your child to the wilds of India, would you tell him/her – “If it’s God’s will for you, then you’d better do it”, supporting them every step of the way? Are we REALLY willing to do God’s will? Then why didn’t we hand a Gospel tract to that cashier the other day? Why did we ignoreRead More →

Content in God’s Will Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am therewith to be content. Philippians 4:11 Are you content in God’s will? I mean, are you really content in God’s will? After many years as of listening to many brothers and sister in Christ, I was surprised (though I should not have been) that very few are truly, consistently, content. Truth be told, I must also count myself among this discontented number. This is nothing new. God’ Word clearly says: The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that whichRead More →

Do We Really Want Our Own Way? Anyone that has taken a true look at themselves has to admit that humans are a self-centered and selfish lot. I have even had individuals whom I consider completely selfless to readily admit this truth. Still, let us look at the Word of God: The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9 It’s a sad thing when God lets us have our own way. (1 Samuel 8:9) He even gives us a run down of the consequences (8:11-18), yet we still want our own way. Read all of 1 SamuelRead More →

A Work in Progress Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Philippians 1:6 We serve such a gracious and merciful God. So often I am reminded of Lamentations 3:21-23: This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. What would or could I do if it were not for His renewed compassions and mercies! It totally befuddles me as to whyRead More →

My Prayer For His Will Sometimes trials come and we truly want to question why, but for the child of God there is no need. God knows what is best for each one of us, and He uses our trials and tribulations to not only mold but refine us. He is making us into His image: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try themRead More →

A Glimpse of Perfection This precious little daughter That the Lord has given you, Will doubtless bring you more joy, As she smiles back up at you. How gracious a Heavenly Father, As on you such love He has shown. Entrusting you with another child, For you to raise up as your own. Each time you look upon her, Gives reason to remember; She is a special reward From your Heavenly Father. And as He is filling your quiver, With this great token of His love Take more time aside to remember, All His past blessings from above. Looking on God’s perfection; Remember, He makesRead More →

Are You Ashamed of Your Saviour? It can be a daily struggle to live the Christian life. It is easy to bow to peer pressure and the jeers of the lost world, and even to people who profess to be Christians, but in all practicality, deny the Lord by their life. As Christians, we should be ashamed of our own sin (that needs to be confessed daily in order to maintain proper fellowship with our Lord – not to keep our salvation) but then we must continue daily to fight the good fight for the Saviour. We do not; however, have anything to be ashamedRead More →

Count the Cost  To those who put off God’s gift of salvation, His own precious Son for their soul’s redemption – Though despised, rejected, and hung on the cross, God’s cry of love still reaches out: “Count the Cost!” To those who have refused Christ’s sacrifice of love, Who have wandered through life without any thought of hereafter, Like the Rich Man in hell, with all hope gone from above, How you’ll wish you had taken the time to “Count the Cost!” To the Christian whose focus is on wordly pleasures, Who lays aside His Lord’s command to seek the lost, Who has no concernRead More →

A Mother’s Paycheck When you get discouraged, About all there is to do; When chores just seem to pile up high, And you want to cry “boo hoo!” Pause a moment and consider, Before that great big sigh; Our reward is not of this earth, Nor does it have wings to fly. Should not we work all the harder, Knowing ’tis not of silver, nor of gold, But was planned for us by the Father, In bygone days of old? And one day when we enter, Heaven’s pearly gates, We’ll see our pay check was long in coming, But will know ’twas worth the wait.Read More →

Our Little One This poem is dedicated to “Our Little One”, who went to be with Jesus on May 21, 1997, after being in Momma’s belly for 15 or so weeks. In October, 1997, found out I was pregnant again, and gave birth to Abigail, June 1998, then Melissa, June 2001, and Carolyn Ann-Marie in October 2004. It is my hope and prayer that many find solace in the confident hope that their precious “little one” is with the Lord. But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return toRead More →
