Lamentations 3:25-26 niv


The Lord wants us to look for Him in our lives.
He wants us to know our hope is not in vain.
He wants to hear from us and when we don’t have words
to express ourselves He is listening to the quiet sighs of our hearts.

Do you have times when you sit quietly in His presence?

Isaiah 40:31 nlt


 When we trust in God we will rise above our problems and pain.
It takes effort to rise above them and when we do we are free to soar.
Though we may become tired and feel we cannot take another step
the God of our hope renews our strength to continue on.

Do you know what it is like to soar like an eagle?
If not what holds you down?

1 Corinthians 15:17-19 niv


Many people refuse to even think about the possibility of Christ’s Resurrection.
They want tangible proof.  Like Thomas they want to see and touch Jesus.
If they would believe in their hearts the possibility
of this wondrous event,
 one day they will see and touch Him.
If they cannot do that they will be lost.

Do you sometimes have doubts about what you believe?
Is it really doubt or do you just have questions?

Romans 15:4 nas

paper-68833_640The Bible isn’t an out-dated history book or just a book of stories.
It is our life instruction manual written by the Spirit using men as secretaries.
If we want to know how to live rightly, how to do routine maintenance, and fix things,
we need to read the Book and do the work.

Do you spend some time everyday reading the Bible?
If it is a struggle or chore what can you do to change that?

Blessings this day of grace,

Lamentations 3:21-23 nas

sunrise in flagstaff2

Whatever has happened today, no matter how frightening or awful,
whether because of our own doing or that of others, we are not defeated.
We need to remember, God is faithful,    
He loves us and His mercy is immeasurable.   
Every morning begins a new day filled with hope.

Have you given up because you feel overwhelmed or defeated?
Have you forgotten the One who loves you without limits and will never abandon you?

Blessings this day of grace,
