Say It!

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

Father,  I thank You because I only speak of those things that You have given me to speak. Amen.… Read more >>

In this corner…

$_32In this corner we have Goliath, towering over 9 feet tall and weighing in at 650 pounds (give or take a few pounds) and in this corner, we have… well by all standards, the loser, a kid named David. I am not a fan of wrestling but I understand enough to know that most of the time those that face each other are pretty much equal in size and weight.

The competitors get in a ring and throw jabs and whatever else in this hand-to-hand combat all in an effort to take each other down. The winner is the last person standing. The story found in 1 Samuel 17 tells of this “giant” Goliath and this young man David in a faceoff with each other.

Unity at Lodi!

768_Lodi_CA_GO_060

Well, Paul and Silas did what they knew to do; they witnessed to the people of the power and love of Jesus Christ. As they witnessed, Lydia, one of the members of this small prayer group, became a believer after she heard about Jesus and His sacrificial death.

ID-100477750He is there! 

Comments are made to me often on how exciting they think it is to travel like I do and see so many parts of the Unites States. I usually just smile and go on. I do travel more than some and not near as much as others. However, I know I am not traveling to sight see. I have a purpose in traveling that goes beyond a mountain range or coastline. It is all about the PEOPLE! I am reminded every day how alike we all are. I am reminded everyday how the writer of the book of Ecclesiastes nailed it when he stated: “ …there is nothing new under the sun.(Ecc. 1:10) And I am reminded daily that the issues, concerns, circumstances may be a little different from person to person but the answer is always the same… A personal relationship with the One true God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
