    Her Hands

    Mon, May 15, 2017
    © Maggie Pittman Her hands held me gently from the day I took my first breath. Her hands helped to guide me as I took my first step. Her hands held me close when the tears would start to fall. Her hands were quick to show me that she would take care of it all. Her hands were there to brush my hair, or straighten ...
     

    By What Power

    Sun, May 7, 2017
    The Book of Acts records a moment when Peter and John were being questioned. They were asked “by what power, or by what name, have ye done this?” What those asking the question didn’t realize was that it wasn’t by what power OR name. It was one and the same, the power is in the name. ...
     

    Wiser Than Adults

    Sun, Apr 30, 2017
    In some ways children are far wiser than adults. At least children know that there are certain things that are absolutely true. Here is a list of truths about life that little children have learned and totally believe. No matter how hard you try, you can’t baptize cats. – When your mom is mad at your dad, don’t let her ...
     

    Never Too Old

    Sun, Apr 23, 2017
    You’re never too old, and it is never too late for God to use you. Moses was eighty years old when he got his assignment, and Caleb was 85 when God gave him his mountain. If anybody could have retired comfortably, it would have been Abraham. But God came knocking. In Genesis 12 we find God telling him to ...
     

    The Cross

    Sun, Apr 16, 2017
    When God left heaven for me To die on an old rugged tree He endured humiliation and shame He was whispering my name As He walked up Mount Calvary He was saying I love you I love you this much You’re the reason I wrapped myself in flesh You’re the reason I took on the form of a man He was saying I love you And You’re the reason I ...
     

    Open Arms

    Sat, Apr 8, 2017
    Could you imagine a church service where the musicians put down their instruments, and the singers became silent. The worship of the congregation became still as rejoicing seemed to pause. Preachers fell to their knees. The glory of the Lord filled the temple. The thick cloud that filled the building. The church watched speechless as King Solomon knelt before the ...
     

    Overweight Bags

    Sun, Apr 2, 2017
    Airlines have become stricter for overweight bags. They now charge you extra for any bag weighing over 50 pounds. It seems as though they are trying to get us to travel light. Travel light or pay the fine. The writer of Hebrews says that we need to lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us. Just ...
     

    A New Generation

    Sun, Mar 26, 2017
    After God delivered the the children of Israel, they spent 40 years in the wilderness because of the hardness of their hearts. If only they had been obedient to God, they could have made the journey much sooner. Before they went into the promise land, Moses reminded them of the things that God had done for them so that they ...
     

    Always

    Sun, Mar 19, 2017
    This past weekend, Sis. Crystal and I spent a couple of days with other ministers and their wives. It was the annual Ministers and Spouses retreat. It was a tremendous time of fellowship and lots of fun. However, traveling there was another story. What should have been a three and one-half hour trip became a five hour trip. ...
     

    An Army

    Sun, Mar 12, 2017
    There are many things at the heart of God, but one of those things is worship. Jesus said, that he had come to seek and save the lost, but he also said, that God seeks worshipers that will worship him in Spirit and Truth. It not only pleases God, but it is one of God’s battle strategies. ...
