Be of Good Cheer

John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” This morning I was praying and reading and asking the Lord for fresh strength and encouragement.  This verse spoke to me and my […]

MM Meditation – A Merry Heart

Proverbs 15:15 All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart  had a continual feast. If we read the above verse with the flippant American definition of merry, we might picture a person bubbling over with laughter for no reason. We expect a merry person to be always laughing, always smiling, and not necessarily  […]

MM Meditation – Not a Fairy Tale

The resurrection of Christ and the fact of the empty tomb  are not a part of this world’s complex and continuing mythologies. This is not a Santa Claus tale- it is history and it is a reality! The true church of Jesus Christ is necessarily founded  upon the belief and the truth that there was […]

They even invented these cool lounging couches, called fainting couches,  to catch the distressed damsels. The Bible talks about such weak people, too, but their weakness doesn’t come […]

Scorners Tell Him to Come Down

During Sunday morning worship a few months ago, we were singing the beautiful old hymn, “Nailed Upon Golgotha’s Tree” and meditating upon the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. One of the lines says, “Scorners tell Him to come down, Claim His kingdom and His crown.” I continued to meditate on this thought for several days. The suffering […]

God Uses Broken Things

I’ve kept piles of broken things since our wedding day. Items fixed with tools are stacked on my husband’s workbench in the garage. The mending pile is in my sewing cabinet.  Anything I can repair is placed in my craft area. These piles have one thing in common – they can’t be used until they’re fixed. I’m pretty sure I saved our marriage the […]

MM Meditation – We Have Found HIM!

John 1:43-45 The following day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.”  … Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote— Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” These were young men […]
