And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

2 Corinthians 9:8

The Feminine Side

What Is Important

What is really important in life?  Is it all the things that we work so hard to accumulate? Is it nice clothes, or fancy homes and cars? Is it traveling to exotic vacation resorts? Is it rank or prestige, success or relationships? There is nothing inherently wrong with any of [...]

Look to God

Are you in your own personal desert right now—a place of testing, or transition, or both?  May I encourage you to look to The Almighty One, “El-Shaddai”, who is your “All Sufficient One” to supply everything you need?  Read about Him in Psalm 91.  He wants us to rest in [...]

God Is Sovereign

With everything that’s going on in the world it is easy to become anxious and angry, but God’s Word can bring real calm to the soul.  Psalm 37 has become a delight to me as I have been memorizing it.  From the commentary on this particular psalm in the Life [...]

Walk In His Ways

2009 brought change in all of our lives and in our church body.  May we never forget all God’s blessings as we look back.  But what does God desire of us, and yes, expect of us as we move forward into a New Year?  “To fear the Lord thy God, [...]

Train Up A Child

Dear mothers of little ones, be encouraged.  Your work is hard, but is the best work in the world, and the most rewarding, for you are molding lives!  What a privilege!  Do not squander time for it is very fleeting.  Little ones grow and are too soon gone.  Opportunities arise [...]

Expect Great Things

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the warmth and new life that spring brings. God is so good to give us changing seasons in our weather as well as in our lives. Change should not be something we dread, but as God brings about changes, we [...]

God Is Our Strength

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:1,10  Are you facing some kind of trouble or trial in your life? Many are. Allow me to share something I read recently in Streams in the Desert (devotional [...]

Worthy of Praise

Is God only to be praised when things in our lives go according to our plans, and then blamed when we don’t like what is happening? Job said it like this, “What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God and shall we not receive evil?” (Job 2:10) When [...]
