We have all wondered at some time in our lives, just why we were born. Some are blessed to know early on what their mission on earth is – the child prodigies who can sing or play an instrument or who are in college by age 16. Even women in ministry positions often feel misplaced. We see a need and know we can fill the position so we jump in, whether it is our forte’ or not. The masses of us {Read More}

Time Saver — Time Waster

“Stupid internet is out again,” I grumbled. I had research to do and Bible verses to verify. I had deadlines to meet. When spellcheck can’t help, I typically key my butchered version into the search engine and get the answer instantaneously. I tried three spellings of a word I struggled with – nothing. Looking at the shelf above my computer I saw a large, familiar book. I grabbed the The Merriam-Webster Dictionary and blew the dust off in a little cloud. I {Read More}

May We Break His Heart in a Positive Way

“Let my heart be broken with the things that break God’s heart” Bob Pierce, World Vision founder This came to my mind today as my pastor was preaching on Acts 10.
