Become A Great Christian

“The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.” 1 John 3:7 (NASB)Adoniram Judson, the first U.S. missionary, sailed to Burma (now Myanmar) in 1812 and served there for almost forty years. His story is one of many accomplishments as well as much heartache. One of the most memorable narratives of Judson takes place during his imprisonment. A caged lion was locked up with the prisoners. After it starved to death, Judson asked permission to reside inside the lion’s…See More

Stay the Course

Our strawberries are almost done for the year . . . and I’m grateful. I’ve spent numerous hours weeding, picking, cleaning, and cutting strawberries. I’m ready to move on to raspberries or peaches. However, I am glad I stayed the course ‘til the end because the last batch yielded the biggest and best tasting strawberries of the season, something we would have missed if I had quit early.To continue…See More

Who Do You Represent?

Kenneth is running a paper route for some friends while they are on vacation. Saturday morning he got up, folded the newspapers, and finished the route before I rolled out of bed. (I had actually forgotten he had to get up early to complete this task.) When I came down the stairs Kenneth told me it sprinkled for a few minutes and then stopped while he was delivering papers, and he hadn’t put them into plastic bags. I confessed I should have looked at the weather and informed him it was supposed…See More

Perspective

Right now soldiers are half-way around the world fighting for our right to sit on our butts and eat bon-bons while watching reality TV shows that are anything but reality. They take up their sword (weapon) every day to fight for my freedom to live a complacent life. And I’m complaining about how hard it is to say “No” to an extra piece of pie or one more serving of pasta. Wow. . . . Shame on me!To read entire blog post…See More

Barb Winters commented on Barb Winters's blog post 'Does God Care?'
"Reanaclaire - I agree that we can get so caught up in our own little world that we forget to look at Him and focus on who He is and what He's done. May we both stop for at least a few moments in the next couple of days and remember and ask Him…"

Reanaclaire commented on Barb Winters's blog post 'Does God Care?'
"Today is Maundy Thursday... tomorrow is Good Friday, it makes me guilty too in a way when I am not focusing on Him... so occupied with my own stuff... and when crisis arises, He is the first one I turn to..."

Does God Care?

Traditionally, I spend the week from Palm Sunday to Easter contemplating Jesus’ last days on earth. My emotions waver as I consider His triumphal entry through His crucifixion and culminating in His resurrection. Today, I wonder if I have allowed these truths to penetrate every area of my life—specifically the area of eating. To read…See More

"Made to Crave" Book GIVEAWAY

The well-publicized book Made to Crave follows Lysa TerKeurst on her journey of discovering why she ate improperly, what she chose to do about it, and how she maintains her goal weight. I especially like this book because the author is real, authentic. There are no quick fixes and she does not pretend as if it’s easy. To read more and…See More

How do you escape life’s problems?

 Yesterday, I threw my arms up in defeat. I surrendered. I caved. I gave up. I did the unthinkable – called a medical specialist. The connotation surrounding this call is “I’m a failure.” I could not rid my body of pain. I could not figure out the problem and fix it. Add this mindset to escalating PMS (yes, it’s real) and my…See More

A Clean Slate

See http://foodliesandtruth.blogspot.com/ for more posts.A new year is like a crisp, clean, white piece of paper. It has potential. It has hope. It has promise. Anything can happen. And unlike birthdays when we look back in despair, on New Year’s Day we look forward in anticipation.I gaze at that crisp white page dreaming about all it can be and wondering what it will be. Will I keep the resolutions I start? Will I fall? Will I get back up?…See More
