Surely Goodness and Love Will Follow Me

Just as God’s goodness and mercy flow to us all the days of our life, so goodness and mercy should follow us, should be left behind us as a legacy to others wherever we may go.

You Prepare a Table Before Me

Predators can still attack, poisonous weeds can still grow, storms and gales can still come swirling up over the peaks. Yet in His care and concern for us, Christ still ensures that we shall have some gladness with our sadness, some delightful days as well as dark days, some sunshine as well as shadow.

Even Though I Walk Through the Valley

The basic question is not whether we have many or few valleys. It is not whether those valleys are dark or merely dim with shadows. The question is how do I react to them?

He Leads Me Beside Quiet Waters

Many of the places we may be led into will appear to us as dark, deep, dangerous, and somewhat disagreeable. But it simply must be remembered that He is there with us in it.

Advent: Coming and Arrival

As the year is drawing to an end, may we say “no” to the things that distract us from Jesus and say “yes” to the gifts — hope, peace, joy, and love — that God wants us to experience.

Response-able

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Accountability

Becoming accountable and responsible is a crucial part of growing up and becoming a mature, balanced human being.

Affection

No one ever outgrows the need for affection.

Acceptance

is a crucial step towards building a nurturing relationship with our children/students.

Called To Serve

To serve is a daily commitment to live out the word of God and the will of God.

Let Us…

To follow Jesus is to be part of a community.

In His Time

What are my choices before an empty tomb? Peter and John, Jesus’ disciples, came to the empty tomb and went back to their homes, whereas Mary Magdalene stood outside the tomb crying (John 20:10). She talked to Jesus and told the other disciples, “I have seen the Lord!” (20:18)

The Lord is Our Shepherd

The Lord said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

The Wise Build on Rock

The Bible tells us that “by wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures” (Proverbs 24:3-4).

BEST Start to 2017

For me, the BEST way would be: count my blessings one by one, speak words to edify one another, share and be thankful with God’s providence.
