With Jesus

…And they realized that they had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 What a thing to say about someone! What a goal for our life! To have someone look at your life; your actions, words, and attitude and conclude you have been with Jesus. I believe this should be my goal… the good times and the […]

For God So Loved You…

Today is John 3:16 day! Did you know the Bible says: For God so loved the World (thats YOU) that He gave His one and only Son (thats Jesus), that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 You should know that long before you were born God loved you. […]

In the name of Jesus

Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and lifted him him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. Acts 3:6-7 NJKV […]

Just Keep Walkin!

Just a reminder my friends… If people make fun of you or belittle you for your faith in Jesus DON’T LET IT GET TO YOU. If they criticize your walk because they don’t think you are “Christian enough” – DON’T LET IT GET TO YOU. That’s the devil using their mouth to discourage you! People […]

All Things New – Stepping Into Freedom

As 2022 comes to an end it’s time to think about what you want to bring into the new year and what you want to become. As a follower of Jesus, the end of one year and the beginning of another always reminds me of 2 Corinthians 5:17 which says… “Therefore, if anyone is in […]

Just a Whisper Away

God is not distant. I hear it. I know it. But sometimes I just don’t feel it… His presence I mean. Can you relate? For the past few days, I’ve been feeling, well I guess you could describe it as dry. It’s odd too because this is my favorite time of year! You know there […]

Lighter Than Air

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.” Psalm 32:1-2 NKJV Do you need to feel lighter? If so, then this is such a great passage to think on! In it, David […]


Psalm 37:1-2 (NKJV) Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Bothered… that is my current temptation and current condition. I’m bothered: With what is going on in the world With the way […]

Chill Out!

And now a word from the Lord! Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, WITH thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE of God, with surpasses ALL understanding, WILL GUARD your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ. Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV (my emphasis added) CJ’s translation for […]

Making the Most of Every Opportunity

“Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.” Colossians 4:5–6 (NKJV)  Not another one of those calls…  “Want to sell your house?”  “Do you want to extend your home warranty… how […]
