One Year Ago Today…

I received one of those calls…something has happened with Dad…it is not good…Mom is riding in an ambulance on the way to the hospital…roughly 30 minutes later…a follow-up call…Dad’s gone…

Life can change forever in 30 minutes…I am here to tell you, the only way to walk through the pain and struggles of life is with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  He truly carries us in the most difficult moments…if we are willing to surrender our ways and our plans for His ways and His plan…we can find peace and comfort that we never knew was possible.  Truly I tell you, our God is an awesome God…Amen.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

Be a Light in the Darkness


Today is a day some people express the greatest fears of darkness they have in the form of costumes and decorations.  Some are playful…some are of a dark nature.  In this world we will encounter people and events that are surrounded by darkness.  Do not be afraid…God gives us the Light.  When God was sending his Son into the world he put one bright light in the sky to show the way.  On this Halloween you certainly can celebrate in whatever way suits you and your family especially because we already know that darkness does not win in the end.  The Light of the world comes from God and his Son and they have already had victory over darkness.

“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light and knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.”

Show others his Light today.
