And Delilah Said…

I have a grandson who, in our southern lingo, is a “Hoss.” Just barely in his teens and already Drue is showing every sign that is going to be a tall and strong man. He is often given tasks that normally are reserved for adults, because of his strength. And nobody is surprised at what … [Read more…]

One Nation, Far From God

“What sex were you at birth?” I stared at the question in disbelief and read it a second time. Then, I read it once more to make sure I had read it right. There I was, sitting, in the parking lot of a minor care facility in Henderson, TX., in shocked disbelief. Have we strayed … [Read more…]

Not With Uncertainty

Have you ever woken up in the morning an find yourself hanging on to the tail end of a dream? Well, I did this morning. I woke up thinking ‘what am I going to do with a life-sized stuffed doll named Honor? That thing is useless.’ I had read an article on honor the day … [Read more…]

We would remember it because of the now famous quotation; “they that are with us are more than they that are with them” II Kings 6:13-23 Dothan is also the place where Joseph was thrown into a pit … [Read more…]

Jesus is Coming!

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings … [Read more…]

Wide Awake Ears

Last week we spoke about clear vision. This week we will discuss ears that are awake. Wide awake may seem like an odd thing to say about our ears, but it comes straight out of your Bible. Through Isaiah (ch.50) we hear Jesus say “The Lord GOD wakens my ear to listen.” He then makes … [Read more…]
