As I continue looking at words that can help us grow in our relationship with God, this week the letter is “D” and the word is “devotion”. Being devoted to God means that we put His will and His desire above our own wishes. In our world today, more than ever, the Christian is under […]

I want to continue looking at encouraging words based on the alphabet that we can use to strengthen our relationship with God. The first word I talked about was abide. Last week’s word was believe. This week, the word I want to talk about starts with the letter “C” and the word is communication. It […]

If you remember in last week’s article, I began a series of encouraging words based on the alphabet. The word I used was the word “abide”.   I talked about how important it is for us to abide in Christ, or stay with Christ, so we can bear the fruit followers of Christ are supposed […]

Think back with me for a minute to the time you began learning the alphabet. It may have been about the same time you were learning to read. I remember in school watching my teacher write out the letters on the chalkboard. I always liked her using the yellow chalk. For some reason I liked […]

Goal: the end toward which effort is directed.  What do you think of when you think of the word “goal”?

We also have goals within the church.  […]

What a wonderful day of worship this past Sunday! It was so good to see so many worshiping with us! I know it was Mother’s Day, which brings out a crowd, but we had others in attendance who have not been with us in quite some time, as well as visitors with us. I was […]

I’m thankful to Crabtree Valley Baptist Church for allowing me to enjoy a “staycation” this past week. It was a wonderful time of rest and being able to refocus through prayer and planning.       Every time I take a vacation, or just spend time resting, my mind always goes back to Jesus and the times He […]

Well, we did it. We were able to enjoy 40 days of focus as we celebrated Easter and the risen Lord. I want to take time in my article to thank you for reading the devotions and for the kind and encouraging words you have shared about them. I enjoyed writing them and helping us […]
