Thursday Thoughts: Come To Our Senses

The idea of coming to ones senses is the reality of seeing things as they really are and not like we want them to be or as we think they ought to be. When we see things as they really are we can see the danger that was always there but was not clear until it had become so bad that we were shocked into reality and we came to our senses.

Thursday Thoughts: Jesus Loves Me

My sins are forgiven because Jesus loves me. Of this I am confident and can take comfort in that knowledge because the bible tells me so. The word of reconciliation tells me that I have been redeemed by the love of Jesus. Jesus did what I cannot do for myself. My gratitude for this gift can be shown in my life for Him.

Thursday Thoughts: Dull of Hearing

I am afraid that there are times that I am dull of hearing and I need to become more focused in my hearing skills. God speaks to us through His word. Are we listening? Are we hearing and understanding?

Thursday Thoughts: Writing Your Own Obituary

In our bible class on Ecclesiastes a couple of weeks ago, Chuck asked each of us to write our obituary. This was a difficult thing to think about, much less, to write. As I thought about this exercise, I began to realize that I would not write my obituary after I have passed away but in fact am writing it now as I live.

Thursday Thought: Life’s Goads

God may be using the events of our lives to draw us closer to Him. Are we guilty of kicking against the goads like Saul? Resisting God’s promise to always be there for us in all kinds of conditions will only make the pain worse. Let us be thankful for God using life’s events to draw us closer to Him.

Thursday Thoughts: Do Not Be Distracted

We must stay focused on the things God wants us to do and not get distracted with the cares of the world, the things that we have no control over or things that cause us personal distress. We must stay steadfast in our service to our God who will take care of us.

Each day we are blessed with another day that God has made for us. It is a new day of hope and opportunity. Out of all the things that are available to us each day, there is one opportunity that is up to each of us to take advantage of. Each day we have the […]

Thursday Thought: Family

One of the greatest blessings we have while here on earth is our family. The word family brings so many good thoughts to mind. The idea of love, security and belonging are all tied up in family. Parents in a family want the very best for their families. God tells us that the father is […]

Thursday Thought: Guard Thy Soul

In the year 2009 my mother moved to Georgia from Texas.  She lived alone and I was more comfortable with her being closer to family in the event she might need assistance.  During this time I have had the opportunity to drink coffee with her each morning and to talk about many things from the […]

Thursday Thought: Time Passages

As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. Psalm 103: 15 For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. James 4:14 We take note of the contradictions that thrust themselves in our paths, refusing to be ignored. Like the newspaper […]

Thursday Thoughts: When Bad Things Happen to “Good” People

In most every culture a principle is taught to the young – through fables, legends, nursery rhymes – and it goes something like this: “good things happen to those who are good.” As adults, we may not believe this at all – but at one time, we did. To those blessed with good parents, this […]
