God Isn’t Interested in “Happily Ever After”

We spend a lot of time telling you that God is your anchor and your safe haven in times of trouble. And he most definitely is! We continually say to put all your faith and trust in Jesus. We love it when we run to Him and find safety and we find rest and answers to our struggles. But what […]

Can You See the Sun?

“I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” Mark Twain Jesus tells us not to worry. In Matthew 6:26 He tells us this, “Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.” He goes on a few verses later […]

Praise for the Rain… Let it Rain!

Today we want to share Psalm 65 with you. This is a beautiful hymn of praise and thanksgiving for God’s goodness to His people. One way to look at this thirteen verse psalm is to break it down into four main themes – in praise of God’s presence in verses 1-3, the blessedness of His presence in v. 4, in […]

If you have followed any of our posts, or been around us for any period of time, you know that we talk about the importance of having a meaningful and personal relationship with God.

Storm-Proof Your Life

Pour Yourself a Glass of Lemonade

Do you feel like the weight of the world is on you? Do you feel under pressure and not sure if you can hold up? You’ve heard the quote, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” But you find yourself thinking that you do not even like lemonade, so just keep the lemons. When life gets tough and each day […]

Smiling at the Storm

“A faith not tested is a faith not trusted.” That is a phrase we believe is ever so true. It is easier to trust God when the seas are calm and crystal clear than when you are in the midst of a fierce storm and your boat is seemingly ready to capsize. And just as you will not know if […]

The Security Camera

Have you ever felt as if you were being watched, and it caused you to act or talk in a certain way? A number of years ago an office that I (Dave) managed had a problem with items disappearing. This went on for a number of weeks and no culprit was found, so I had security cameras installed, and almost […]

Spring Cleaning

This is the time of year when many people engage in what is commonly called “spring cleaning.” Garages are swept out, decks are power washed, and windows get cleaned. The longer hours of daylight allow for us to freshen up flower beds, removing the leaves and debris that accumulated in them over the winter, getting them ready for the planting […]
