12.5.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Getting Ready for the Forecast

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I REALLY REALLY REALLY don’t like snow.

I’m back home in NC now where we don’t know how to drive in it and we aren’t prepared … Continue reading 12.5.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Getting Ready for the Forecast

10.28.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: God’s Promises

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Joshua 21:45 says, “Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.” This verse was written after all the events leading up to and including the Israelites possession of the Promised Land.

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday morning, I had finished up my prayer time and was getting ready for church.

And you can barely hear the word without thinking … Continue reading 2.25.18 Prayer Prompt: The Miracle of Grace

2.21.18 Prayer Prompt: When We Want Our Rainbow

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I don’t like to wait.  There was a reason God put the word “timing” on my heart for this year’s focal word!  Combine my impatience with my tendency to “fix it,” and there’s no doubt I cause God to facepalm Himself often.  I’m bad about running ahead of Him, ready to get that prayer request answered and cross that consequence off the … Continue reading 2.21.18 Prayer Prompt: When We Want Our Rainbow

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Brrrrrrrrrr…  I come to you this morning with hot coffee and under a blanket!  It’s a balmy 8 degrees at my house this morning, with an expected high of 31 (which will feel like a heat wave after I braved the cold to let my dog out this morning!)  Hope all of you are staying warm!  Today, I want to talk about … Continue reading 1.5.18 Prayer Prompt: Be Real

11.20.17 Prayer Prompt: Grace Beyond Our Understanding

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Charles Manson died.  Anytime I hear of someone passing, I wonder if they ever accepted Jesus.  Charles Manson is no exception.  This man was the definition of evil personified.  Yet, Jesus’ gift of salvation was extended to him too.  Whether Manson accepted it is between him and Jesus.  As Christians, we need to remember that none of us are better than he … Continue reading 11.20.17 Prayer Prompt: Grace Beyond Our Understanding
