Do You Have the Christmas Blues? {Psalm 19}

Christmas Blues

“7 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; 8 the precepts of the Lord are right,  rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; 9 the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. 11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.” Psalm 19:7-11 As soon as the Christmas […]

The Book of Exodus One Chapter a Day!

  I loved our time together in Genesis this fall – so the natural progression is to keep going into the book of Exodus. We will be in the book of Exodus this January and February,  then on March 2nd, we will begin the Gospel of Matthew –which will take us up to the week of Easter.  Just perfect! I am so excited about this winter session! Questions: What happened to the book of Psalms? Psalms does not require a straight through reading in order to be understood in its context, so we will revisit it again later in the […]

6 Benefits of an On-Line Bible Study Group

Psalm 16:3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight. Do you delight in the fellowship of saints? The Psalmist writes in Psalm 16:3, his delight is in the saints. Have you been some place talking to someone new – perhaps at one of your children’s events, at work, in the grocery store, or in an airport and you realize the person you are speaking with is a believer?  Immediately a wall comes down and there is a connection. The Holy Spirit does that. He knits our hearts together because […]

How Long O Lord? {Psalm 13}

How Long O Lord?

Psalm 13 1 How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? 3 Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, 4 lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,” lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken . 5 But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall […]

Keeping Christ in Christmas – Part 1

Keeping Christ in Christmas - Part 1

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35 Have you ever imagined what it would be like if we took the Christ child out of Christ-mas? Since I grew up in a Christian home – celebrating Jesus as “the reason for the season” is all I know. But for some of you – you came to Christ later in life and you know what it’s like to do Christmas minus Christ. In today’s video, I talk about “Random Acts of Kindness” and spreading the love of Jesus at Christmas. But let me caution you. Do not let […]

Will You Pray For My Son and For Me?

Foot Xrays

Today’s Good Morning Girls reading is in Psalm 12. But I wanted to share with you something I am facing in real life – so if you don’t mind, just for today, I will bypass our reading and share with you a prayer request. My son has been suffering from pain in both of his feet for about 2 years.  He loves sports and I have shared some of the photos of him playing football, basketball and doing karate.  His pain has become debilitating at times – hence the feet in ice buckets after games.  I love seeing that smile […]

When the Wicked Prosper and God Seems Far Away {Psalm 10}

When the wicked prosper and God seems far away

Do you find yourself troubled by the direction of our world? Turning on the news these days is a painful experience. Watching the oppression of women, children, the poor, racial tensions, and persecution of Christians around the world, is enough to make us all sit back and say: “God, where are you?” The corruption I see in our government mixed with the required political correctness in the media, suppresses truth and makes my heart hurt. A reader wrote me and asked, “How do we live with joy when all this is in our face and growing? How do we not […]
