Please join me in praying for Pastor David Samuel in India and his ministry, Indian Rural Gospel Mission. They are taking steps to start a business to help ministries. You may read more about what they do here and about the great need for prayer and encouragement. Please also take a few minutes to visit their website.

From Pastor Samuel:

i earnestly prayed and seeking God’s guidance to start any business ministry to do fund rise for sustainable resource for the ministry, because we need funds for our ministry of evangelism, church planting, discipleship training, pastors ministry training and bible school etc.

Knocked down but back up again

Don’t give up, get back up and try again.


A while back I wrote about the tree that fell down in the playground at my apartment and how they had to cut the rest of it down.


This beautiful tree lost a huge branch.



So it had to be cut down because it was rotting on the inside.

So to recap, large branch fell causing the tree to be cut down, chopped and ground to nothing. This tree is gone, or is it?

Here where a tree had fallen and was cut down to nothing is life shooting up out of the ground.

Many times in our lives we feel the pruning sheers of life cutting away at us. For some of us we feel like we are cut down to nothing and there is nothing left. Yet looking at this tree sprouting out up from the ground I am reminded that even when you seem to have lost…

Compromise: The Path Leading to Hell!


By Patrick Hawthorne

abandoned church4

America is in a spiritual decline.  Perhaps the word decline is too safe.  Perhaps the word “free fall” would be a more fitting description. To that, no one rightly discerning the times can deny.  Many of our elected leaders are building their foundation upon the decaying corpses of all they have slaughtered through their lawless policies, deeds, and acts.  Meanwhile, they are ignorant to the death and decay that is swallowing their own souls.

Time and time again, we are told – and rightly so –  to pray for our nation and to pray for those in authority.  Yet, the more we pray the more it appears that this nation’s  downward slide has gained so much momentum that none, not even God, is capable to slowing its descent.

Habakkuk shared the same sentiment when he saw Judah fall into the hands of the Chaldean’s (Babylonians).  To paraphrase…

Gifts Old and New


This old Bible still has use. Although it’s pages are worn, and some are even torn and stained.

It reminds me of where I was and how far I have come.

This Journal and Bible came from two friends who are special to me. Dawn Kozma and Amy (Martin) Clifford blessed me with this wonderful study Bible. Both have been of great use for me in relationship with my Savior Jesus.

For these gifts are used everyday.

These gifts also remind me of the gift Jesus gave to all who will receive. The gift of salvation. The greatest gift anyone will ever receive.

What If Jesus Did A Draft For His Disciples?

Love the sports analogy of this post. Pastor Randy hit it out of the ballpark.

Kingdom Pastor

Now, I’m not here to brag about College football, just making some Kingdom Observations.  For football fans, last night and for the next few days, there is an air of excitement.  It’s the NFL selecting which players will have an opportunity to take their skill sets to the next level.  I admit that though I’m not exactly an NFL fan, I did watch the first round last night.  Reason being is that I wanted to see how players from THE University of Alabama would fare, and how the Southeastern Conference fared.  And once again, the dominant program of the dominant Conference can celebrate success.  Out of 32 players selected, 10 came from the SEC, and of that 10, 4 came from Alabama.  Both numbers more than any other Conference or School.  I’m just sayin’…

All this got me to thinking this morning.  I know, I know.  I think differently from…

Giving Thanks December 18, 2016 – Thanking God For My Mother’s Bible

Remembering My Mom


Psalm 119:105 (KJV) Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

This Bible is one of my favorite treasures. I grew up not knowing that my mother had ever known or believed in Jesus. It wasn’t until I became an adult that I learned that she had been a Christian. Unfortunately after she married my father and he became very abusive, her relationship with Christ had been left behind. You cannot lose your salvation but you can turn your back on it and walk away. Finding my mothers Bible was the way I had found out about her faith. She told me when she met my father it was in her church’s rectory and she was a part of the youth missions. Unfortunately after they moved to the mainland their marriage turned to the worst and she stopped going to church and lived as…

Self Examination / How honest can you be?


If you are a woman you have more than like seen one of these breast self exam cards. A woman will examine herself to check for cancer but how many of us examine ourselves for the cancer of sin that slowly eats way the life of its’ host. We are quick to point out others flaws and report the wrong doings of others but how often do we confess our own sins? Publicly admit any wrong doings on our parts. Yet we publicly point out the wrongs others may be doing. Thanks to the Internet and social media opinions outweigh facts. People write what they want and though each of us can have our own opinion it is just that an opinion not fact. The best lies have a grain of truth. We can ‘t even believe what we see in the news any more. Yet criticism, and judgments are made…

Give Up That Too Small God!

Kingdom Pastor

(Note:  This is the third in my Lent Series “Give It Up!”  It is about the things we need to give up and not take back up at Easter)

2 Kings 6:8-17The Message

One time when the king of Aram was at war with Israel, after consulting with his officers, he said, “At such and such a place I want an ambush set.” 9 The Holy Man sent a message to the king of Israel:  “Watch out when you’re passing this place, because Aram has set an ambush there.”  10 So the king of Israel sent word concerning the place of which the Holy Man had warned him.  This kind of thing happened all the time.

 11 The king of Aram was furious over all this. He called his officers together and said, “Tell me, who is leaking information to the king of Israel?  Who is the…
