  • Gratitude, Grit or Grouch?

    When it comes to life’s circumstances and what goes on each day, how do you respond with gratitude, grit or grouch? And is your response determined by your circumstance or by your character?

    Here is a quiz to assess your response. Let’s start:

    Question 1:You are in the 20 item line at Walmart with your two cans of green beans, one can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and one package of French Fried onions. The person in front of you has a full shopping cart of items. How do you respond?

  • Putting faith in God will not prove disappointing

    I recently watched an episode of “Our America with Lisa Ling” about a faith healing ministry in Fort Mill, S.C.

    Ling, a television journalist, took a camera crew to document the very Pentecostal healing meetings to which hundreds of people came, some traveling hundreds of miles.

    Two sisters came with their mother who had terminal cancer, as did Steve, a man in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down.

  • Jesus, remember me when you are in the Kingdom

    We welcomed the month of November with Halloween celebrations. My reflection during this month is on saints and sinners. I got scared several times while running through the streets of Carrollton early in the mornings when I saw ugly and scary statues in front of the houses. Halloween celebration is over now thanksgiving is right around the corner. It is nice to think about the history and spiritual meaning of the annual celebrations.

  • The Word of God answers our needs, provides advice

    I believe the Word of God has the anointing (ability) to speak to people. We read the Word and expound on it but the true Word of God is what speaks to our Spirit and tells us what to do and what not to do. It’s the answer to our needs and advice from our Savior, so I want to share God’s Word with you:

     

    Psalm 91, In God we trust,

    1.                  He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

  • Project Comfort prepares seniors for winter months

    I often wonder what it must have been like for the twelve disciples when Jesus washed their feet. I think Peter spoke for the group when he declared, “Never shall You wash my feet!”  Peter said this because he knew that it was unnatural for the leader of a group to humble himself and serve those who followed him. This was especially true when the leader of the group was no less than the Savior of the world.  But this is what Jesus did.  He became a servant and served His closest friends and followers.
