This week we’re looking at —– Wine! Well, sort of. King David writes in Psalm 119:83 that he feels like a wineskin. That’s weird. But it has to do with the way the ancients used to make wine.
As Christians we still feel the heat and smoke from a culture that really doesn’t understand the One True God. When the Christian stands on God’s word and commandments, His statutes and His promises, then the Christian is going to be in the heat and smoke of things. When this happens the Christian continues in prayer, which is usually the first casualty when suffering occurs.
Do you ever feel like you’re swamped and swimming up stream? Does it ever seem like God may never keep His word? The unbelieving world has a lot of answers for the Christian. They ridicule Christians for putting their hopes, dreams, and desires in something so futile as “this Jesus.” The newest label for the Christian here in the US is “Christian Nationalist,” and it’s not a term used for flattery. Nevertheless, the Christian presses forward.
This is nothing new. God’s people have always been challenged in various ways. And the Christian has the added burden as we, too, wrestle with anxiety. Psalm 33 has the answer!
Good day Family! It was GREAT having you all with us last week for the wedding!
You’re feeling it at the gas pumps. Right? Feeling it at the grocery store. Right? As of Thursday, July 28th, our country is officially in a recession. It looks like we could be heading for stagflation as well. You’re way to young to know about this because the last time stagflation happened, it was under the Carter administration in the late 70s.
Times like these are challenging for every person, Christian and non-Christian alike. However, the Christian handles things differently than the rest of world does. Yes. We’re to store up, but what are we to store up on?
Hi Family! Mom and I are REALLY looking forward to having you all here for your sister’s wedding!
As you prepare to travel by plane and automobile, this is a good time to check your levels. Not the gas level, your tire pressure levels, or radiator levels (though these are important!). Rather, check your oxygen levels!
This is Trinity Sunday in the Christian Church. We celebrate Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost, as I was raised). God is soooo awesome and great and majestic! His Creation is wondrous and marvelous. It’s easy for people, individual peeps, to get lost in the vastness of the universe. Without the Triune God in one’s life, life will be empty, not complete. A person will try to fill the void to find purpose and meaning in life. However, apart from God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, there’s a huge hole. It can only be filled with Jesus.
Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, when you think that things are chuggin’ along, it begins to rain. And then there are times when it pours! It’s one thing after another after another. These are the times when a person feels physically, emotionally, and spiritually drained. A person can feel like there’s absolutely no hope. Where do we turn in times of deluge? We turn where King David turned. We turn to God and His Messiah!
It’s Mother’s Day, so give thanks to God for Mom. She’s the best and has a real mother-shepherd’s heart for each and every one of you. God gives you one Mom!
Mom’s been there for each of you through thick and thin. I don’t have to tell you that. And Mom will be there for every day praying and willing to help. But Mom can’t be all the time. That’s where Psalm 23:4 comes in!
