Live Godly, in This Present Age

Posted by DeVonna , 18 August 2017 - - - - - - · 848 views

“…The grace of God… teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope – the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
Clearly from this verse of instruction we see that we are not to simply sit idly while wondering...


Be the Gospel

I have a friend whose son served recently on yet another tour in Afghanistan in the American military. One day she received an email from her soldier-son, where he lamented the pitiful things he had witnessed: the suffering of innocents, the death, the chaos. “Where is God in all this?” he grieved. I counseled her, “Tell him God is there in your son’s ang...

Happy New Year!  
There's a great big beautiful year stretching out before us. Did you make resolutions? I did, I enjoy the idea of a new opportunity to challenge and better myself. Of course we can do this at any time, but we especially think of new beginnings at the New Year. Not everyone views the future with anticipation though. In fact, worryi...


What Peace on Earth?

Posted by DeVonna , 25 November 2016 - - - - - - · 2124 views

Listening to Christmas songs recently I was struck by their joyous message and the stark contrast between them and the condition of the world we live in today. Every day seems to bring news of more harsh realities of life on this little orb we call earth. Natural disasters, social turmoil, violence, loss, let’s face it, this world is a mess! How do we rec...

Officer Down; Why Christians Should Be Praying (According to the Officer Down Memorial website, 99 police officers have been killed in the line of duty this year, 2016, so far.)  In response to the many attacks that have taken place this year against our law enforcement officers, our church held a special time of prayer during a recent Sunday morning service. A uniformed officer was invited to...


The Answer For What Ails Us

Posted by DeVonna , 18 July 2016 - - - - - - · 1113 views

The Answer For What Ails Us I’ve been sick. For the past 7 mos I’ve endured doctor appts, numerous hospital visits and tests and two surgeries. There’s nothing like pain to make us appreciate healing; there’s nothing like strife to make us long for peace. Whether in ourselves or in the world at large, disorder tends to make us crave order.
Over the last half year I’ve longed for rel...


Choose Faith

Posted by DeVonna , 25 March 2016 - - - - - - · 1345 views

Choose Faith Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance for what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1  
I think there is a misperception about Faith at work in the world today, in AND out of the community of believers. People seem to think of true, Bible, faith as if it were ‘blind faith’. The Urban Dictionary defines ‘blind faith’ thus,“ Blind faith occurs w...


Gratitude Attitude

Posted by DeVonna , 05 January 2016 - - - - - - · 1226 views

Gratitude Attitude I started a gratitude journal this year. As a writer, I love journaling and the sunny orange color of my new journal makes it a cheering part of my day. 
As I contemplated how to start my gratitude journey, I was asking myself, what am I most grateful for? My family comes immediately to mind. My husband and our children and their significant others m...


Tis' the Season

Posted by DeVonna , 30 November 2015 - - - - - - · 1729 views

Tis' the Season I love the seasons of the Church. By that I mean, I love Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter. At the moment we are in Advent, a time of anticipation of the coming of the Lord. Of course it can be argued that every day should be lived as a time of Advent, but I am speaking specifically of that time of year on the liturgical calendar when Christian believers...


Where is God, When Evil Strikes?

Posted by DeVonna , 14 November 2015 - * * * * * · 1618 views

Where is God, When Evil Strikes? Where is God on nights like the one we’ve just witnessed in Paris? Where is He when terrorists strap explosives to their own bodies and mingle with crowds of innocent people? Where is He when gunmen wander at will through a darkened theater, methodically shooting anyone who catches their sight? In all the tragedies of life the Lord God assures us, He is s...
