40 DAYS OF TRUST

Join me for 40 Days of Trust. It was recently brought to my attention that many are going through a rough 2014 already and encountering situations that almost demand that we increase our level of trust in the One who is most trustworthy. Maybe you have endured incredible loss in this New Year or quite possibly you are facing a situation that is beyond your capability to control or handle.

During the next 40 Days we will focus on God and Who He is and put our requests and concerns before Him.

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, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 

Next, pick a Scripture that causes you to focus on the character of God and His work.  Here are some ideas for you:
  • Jeremiah 10:12
  • Psalm 46:1
  • Psalm 46:10
  • Genesis 18:14
  • Psalm 103:8
Choose one verse to meditate on throughout your day.  You might want to write this verse on a note card to take with you in the car or the office or even keep on the breakfast table. When you are tempted to worry or despair about your current situation, pray immediately and lay your request/concern before God. Finally, focus on your chosen Scripture verse and what it reveals about God who is Most Trustworthy! Feel free to share what the Lord does in the next 40 Days--I know He will do a work in us!

Tired of the TO DO Lists?

The Great Grind: If you're anything like me, your life is filled to overflowing with the necessities and then some!  I'm sure you have a life filled with the daily grind of shopping, cooking, cleaning, working, going to the Doctor, going to the bank, running to the pharmacy, taking care of the sick pet, thinking of meals for the upcoming week, taking care of the children, and if you home school your children - lesson planning, grading, teaching, gathering material and then there's paying the bills, cutting coupons to save money, and oh yes, the beloved laundry!  And the defining moment when you realize you do not have any clean underwear for the next morning...ugh.

Part 2 ~ Miracles: Impossible?

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.  Luke 1:31 Miracles: Impossible? Remembering David Hume's definition of a miracle from the last post: "[a] violation of the laws of nature; and because firm and unalterable experience has established these laws, the case against a miracle is--just because it is a miracle--as complete as any argument from experience can possibly be imagined to be." 1 If we take a look at Hume's definition of miracle, at first glance, it would seem as if he is declaring miracles to be an impossibility because they cannot violate the laws of nature. Is this really what Hume is attempting to argue? Hume taught "that what we call the laws of nature are simply an account of what has happened up to the present plus a belief that the future will continue to be like the past."2 According to Hume, we observe what has happened and we believe, or shall we say, take a step of faith to believe that wha…

Close Calls

For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the Lord our God whenever we call on Him? Deuteronomy 4:7
Sound of the fury or two terriers. There was a time when we had two terriers who were not always fond of each other. Though they were small, they were feisty. I was walking through the kitchen one day when the one terrier upon seeing the other, decided that this was her time to shine and leave her mark. The pearly whites of her teeth began to gleam as she lifted her lip in utter disdain and latched on to her "companion" and would not let go. The usual verbal threats masked in the growling and snarling were not part of this fight; however, the sheer determination to defeat the opponent and win were certain. To say that I was concerned was an understatement. After quite a while of trying to pry the dogs apart and loosen the clenched teeth without success, I finally blurted out, "Jesus, help us!" It was at this exact moment that the one dog release…
