Habit

Habit of the Month – February – Encouraging Others This month I think we should all focus on encouraging others. Encouraging others is often a kind word, a listening ear or a loving action. Once I was going through a couple of very busy weeks and was feeling stressed over it. One of the ladies of our congregation, after listening to me “belly-ache” about it, called me the next day to say, “I am coming to get your dry cleaning…have it ready by 3:30.

Hours? Really!?!

MP900178785[1]

We live in a really busy world. There are many options for activities: sports, school, Bible classes, movies, exercise, etc. In all of our activities, how often do we think to pray? More specifically, do we intentionally set aside time to pray? We often place a lesser priority on time to reflect, meditate, and pray: especially for longer than a few minutes. I am not talking about a minute here or there but praying for hours at a time. If we desire to be Christ-like, consider this: at times Jesus … [Read more...]

Teacher and Student In A Classroom At School

“And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age…” when He began his ministry. (Luke 3:23)  His ministry was completed approximately 3 ½ years later at his ascension up into heaven (Luke 24:50-51).  Jesus, the son of God, was a teacher on a mission.  He had very little time to complete the Father’s will. He had so many things to teach and so little time to teach the people.  There was no time to waste so He began teaching. In the winter of 1982, my husband and I discovered that I was … [Read more...]
