Perceive-Eyes to See and Ears to Hear

The Bible talks a lot about people not having eyes to see and ears to hear.  It is not talking about being physically blind and deaf but unable to perceive what is happening. The Jews did not perceive that Jesus was the long-awaited Messiah, and they missed the blessing He had for them.  Can you imagine having the opportunity to sit and talk with your Messiah but missing it because you could not perceive who Jesus was?   Do you remember the magic eye images?  To find the hidden picture, you had to look deeper into the image. That is...

Break out of Hibernation and Beat the Winter Blues

Between Covid lockdowns and the winter weather we've been having, many of us have been indoors longer than  normal. With that hibernation the winter blues can set in. Winter blues have been having a definite effect at our house.   I just want to curl up beside the fireplace with a good book and cup of coffee and stay there until spring. And so that's what I do.

Our struggles and unbelief don't annoy Him. He doesn't complain about how slow we...

hey, I Resemble that Remark!

I enjoy quotes.  They inspire and make me laugh. Someday I hope I can write stuff that others will want to quote. But for now, here are some quotes from some quote-worthy folks.  These made me think "hey-I resemble that remark!"    “Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee.” – Stephanie Piro    “When your quilting up a life, you sometimes got to start with any piece you can get your hands on.” ―Jonathan Odell   You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks. -  Winston Churchill    “May...

Hold Fast the Profession of your Faith

Hold Fast the Profession of your Faith

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering;  (for he is faithful that promised;)  Hebrews 10:23 (KJV)   The Bible, God's word, is full of promises to you as a believer.  He wants you to lay claim to them, to seize them and hold tightly to them. You can access those promises and activated them in your life by your profession of faith. Your faith is not in His promises alone but in the one who made those promises. You can rest assured that He is reliable, trustworthy, and faithful to keep His word.  This verse also...
