As I take a few moments to write this short post, the following passage of Scripture comes to mind.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
For the past two years I had been blessed with the time needed to write and share what the Lord laid on my heart but have now entered into a season in my life where such is no longer the case and it is needful that I place the blog on hold at this time. Although there will be no new articles posted in the immediate future, I will still maintain the blog by monitoring and responding to questions and comments posted.
Re-entering the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom for over twenty years has been a huge adjustment for all of us but the Lord has given me favor with management as well as co-workers and what began as part-time employment is now moving into full-time for me. All of this is a great blessing for us as the extra income is very much needed at this time in our lives and I truly do enjoy the work I have been given to do.
To those of you who have been praying for my family, there has been great improvement in many areas and I am thankful for that and continue to trust the Lord to complete His good work in each one of our lives.
In closing, I just want to encourage each one of you dear brothers and sisters in the Lord as reading the daily news can be disheartening at times but rather than placing too much of our time and energy into trying to make sense of the headlines, let us instead respond with a heart full of thankfulness to our great God and King who is our ever present help in times of trouble. Instead of fear and despair, we now have peace and hope as Jesus has saved us from our sins and He will yet save us from His wrath to come. Such blessed hope we have in these dark days and come what may, I pray this hope remains in the forefront of our thoughts as it will keep us anchored through each and every storm we face until our Lord Jesus returns and calls us all home!
Until That Day…
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
[All Scripture quotations are from the King James Bible]
At a time when many of our freedoms and liberties are eroding and slowly being taken away, there is still so much to be thankful for and all the more reason to salute the countless brave men and women for the great sacrifices they have made on our behalf! Continue reading
We may not always understand why the road we walk is so painful at times but I do know with all my heart that our God is faithful and that He both hears and answers our prayers when we cry out to Him. Continue reading
With today being the anniversary of 911 and this Friday, the 13th, being 20 years since the Oslo Accord signing, a tactical military maneuver known in Arabic as the Truce of Hudaybiyyah, along with tension in the Middle East at an all time high, I believe it is of utmost importance that I re-post the following. Continue reading
Following is an urgent appeal from Syrians regarding the truth of what is really going on in their country. Please make time to watch this very important video interview and then share it with others. Above all, let us continue to be in prayer for the people of Syria and for our own government leaders as well at this very crucial point in time. Continue reading
Money Talks and War is Dirty…
Therefore, in order to find out who is really calling the shots on the much debated impending US military intervention in Syria, all one needs to do is follow the money trail to learn who stands to gain the most from this strike and we find that it leads us straight to the “Harlot” described in Revelation 17 as “Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.” Continue reading
There are so many things I would like to write about at this time but what is most important is that I once again share a post that would encourage us in the Lord as there is such a stirring inside of me that we are entering into the final laps of our race on earth and the finish line is almost in sight. Anyone who is viewing current events from a Biblical perspective can easily see this. Continue reading
It never ceases to amaze me how much Jesus loves us and cares about every little detail of our lives and how He faithfully works things out for His children above and beyond what we even ask or think! Continue reading
Many churches are now filled with frivolity and froth rather than solid Biblical substance. Instead of being houses of worship and prayer, they are social clubs devoted to the gratification of self; self-focused, self-sufficient and self-absorbed. They are cappuccino churches that make people feel warm and cozy on the outside but leave them spiritually dead on the inside. Continue reading
A recent comment by a reader led me to their new blog titled Merry Music Notes that will be focusing on worship music and I have been pondering this phrase which was the caption of their first post, “Music Can Only Take You Where It Came From”. It is such a simple phrase yet it rings with so much truth.
Now I have heard it said that it is the lyrics that make a song Christian, not the music, but that is simply not true. Music and rhythm in and of itself is a powerful medium that deeply affects us all. Some melodies are uplifting whereas others are downright irritating; some music carries the sound of heaven whereas others are earthy, sensual, sinister and just plain dark. Continue reading

Question: What do you get when you combine the old English hymn “I Sing The Mighty Power of God” by Isaac Watts with the classical German composition “Canon in D” by Johan Pachelbel?
Answer: A powerful and majestic masterpiece of praise and worship to our great and mighty God; King of Kings and Lord of Lords; Creator of heaven and earth! Continue reading
Today’s post will be expanding on an article I wrote a few months ago titled “Have We Been Taught Wrong About The Rapture?” wherein I shared numerous examples from Scripture that point to a post-tribulation rapture. Some agreed with what was presented; others did not. Continue reading
There is a growing trend within the church these days; namely, the proclamation that God’s judgement is raining down upon mankind every time a natural disaster or calamity occurs. For example, the deadly Indonesian earthquake and tsunami in 2004 was said to have been God’s judgement upon that region for their great sin. It was also said that Haiti’s devastating earthquake in 2010 was God’s judgement for all the witchcraft and voodoo in that nation. Continue reading
I have been singing this song over and over in my spirit for several days. It has also had its fair share of repeat on my iPod and I have really been pondering these words of the second verse,
“You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind.
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.” Continue reading
Are we nearing the end of the calm before the storm? Is this even possible to know? What makes this year different from all others regarding the race towards Armageddon and how things may soon play out? Continue reading
Avi Lipkin was right again. No, he is not a prophet, nor does he claim to be. Rather, he is simply a spokesman who faithfully shares what Muslims have been saying in Arabic for quite some time now and in so doing, is able to reveal many of their sinister plans to overthrow and dominate America. But I am getting way ahead of myself here so please allow me to backtrack a bit in order to explain what I mean. Continue reading
Cancer is no respecter of persons in that it targets individuals of every age group and from all walks of life. In some way or another, all of us have been affected by this terrible disease whether it has been through watching a loved one become ravaged by this malady or are in the throes of battling it ourselves as statistics show that one in four people will contract cancer at some point in their lives. These are not very good odds. Continue reading
1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
In all honesty, for the past few months I have been struggling with thanksgiving in my life. Sure, it is easy to give thanks unto God when all is well but are we still thankful when things get rough? In everything give thanks? In everything? Surely the Lord doesn’t really mean that does He? Ah, but He does and with His help I am learning to praise and give thanks in the midst of some painful and difficult things that are going on in my family. Continue reading
The following newsletter was a timely word for me as I have been battling against discouragement. Perhaps you can relate to this as well or know of someone who is struggling in this area. If so, may our strength in the Lord be renewed today through this word of encouragement to all who are weary. Continue reading
Have you ever been at a place in your life where you simply did not have the strength to carry on anymore? Where you are hit on every side by troubles and fears day in and day out and you wonder where God is in all of this? Where the burdens you carry become too heavy to bear and like King David, you wish that you had wings like a dove to fly away and be at rest?
5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.
6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
7 Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest. Continue reading
