Throwback Thursday Link-Up: Cutting the Apron Strings

When we found out we were going to have a child, we began to dream of what he or she would become. We knew we would raise this child to love the Lord and follow His direction for his or her life. As young idealistic parents, we had no idea all that would be involved in bearing the responsibility of raising a child. The child we had great dreams for is now a 22-year-old man. It has been amazing how {Read More}

Throwback Thursday Linkup: God’s Signature Dishes

  God has signed His name on my dishes. Really. At first glance you will not be able to see it, but after I tell you my story, I believe you will agree with me that God’s signature is truly there. You see, God is interested in the details of the lives of His children and the desires of their hearts (Psalm 37:4). As we obey Him, it is His delight to shower us with good gifts. When I graduated {Read More}

In His Presence #25: Sacrificial Love

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly (Romans 5:6). Read: Romans 5:1-11 “How are you doing?” I asked my pregnant daughter when she called after her seven-month checkup. ” OK, I guess.” Her voice sounded flat. She paused. “The doctor put me on bed rest so the baby won’t come too early.” I sighed. That wasn’t what I wanted to hear. We had prayed she would get through this pregnancy {Read More}

In His Presence #24: The Majesty of My Redeemer

“On the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.” Psalm 145:5 Recently, the word “majesty” has just popped into my mind over and over.  I have been spending some of my In His Presence time delving into the meaning of that word.  I am in awe when I think of the majesty of Christ.  I have been listening to the song, Majesty on Youtube featuring Michael W. Smith and Crown Him  (Majesty) with Christ {Read More}

In His Presence #22 : What’s Your Mission?

I went to hear Pam Tebow, mother of the famed quarter back Tim Tebow,  speak recently.  What an anointed speaker she is, with many wonderful things to share.  One of the things the Lord spoke to me about was when she asked, what’s your mission? Ms. Tebow said missions can change with seasons of life.  She shared, “Mother’s with young children, you know what your mission is.” Don’t we often try to busy ourselves with things we think are our {Read More}

In His Presence #21: Live Differently

“Live Like No One Else.”  I just read that on someone’s car.  It was a bumper sticker from Dave Ramsey.  I know the premise behind that sticker is that we need not go into debt feeling like we have to keep up with the “Jones.”  But, I think, as Christians we could take that slogan even further. The Bible says: And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you {Read More}

In His Presence #20: A Steadfast Mind

My personal In His Presence time for the past few weeks has been focused on “my mind.”  I want to have a steadfast mind like it says in Isaiah 26:3: You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. In the book, Breaking Free by Beth Moore, she goes to great length to examine four phrases from this verse. The first is:  You will keep.  She explains that God is like a “watchman” {Read More}

In His Presence #19: Think on These Things

I hope you are still making time to get In His Presence.  If you’ve missed a week, the devil will definitely try to make you feel guilty, but don’t give up!  When thoughts like that creep into your mind, remember Philippians 4:8, Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things (ESV).  When {Read More}
