Last night I shared the video for the song "NO Turning Back". Every time I listen to it I am reminded of Romans 8:35-39 about how as followers of Christ we will suffer persecution and tribulations but that no matter how much the Satan and the world try to tear us from our Savior they … Continue reading No Turning Back 2
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not die but have everlasting life. John 3:16 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe … Continue reading To Be Saved
And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Luke 5:31-32 Searching through the Word tonight, researching a future post I came across the above verses and was moved by them. I've read them … Continue reading Is Jesus Your Doctor?
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Romans 13:1 In studying Daniel a couple weeks ago I was struck by how many times he mentions that God is truly in control of the schemes of man and … Continue reading Higher Power
We like music around our house. Good music, edifying, pointing us to look up to the Lord, music that praises Him, or that helps us grow in our walk with Him in some way.

A couple of years ago we memorized Ephesians 6 as part of my son's bible studies. It was hard especially by the time we got all the way into the armor of God in verses 10-20. Since those verses were so important, so helpful in our walk with Christ, I really wanted him to remember … Continue reading Battle Ready!
So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his … Continue reading Watchman
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5) I think about that a lot, that Jesus paid it all for me. That he was crucified, that he died so that I could … Continue reading Jesus Paid It All
For several weeks our Sunday school teacher has opened with this verse as a gentle reminder that we need to thank God for our blessings not grumble about our trials. I always whisper it along with him, smiling over every word. It's long been a favorite go to passage of mine. Every since I opened … Continue reading Rejoice!
