The Love of God and Love For God

”Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” John 4:7-11 Love. Arguably the most used and misused word... Read more >>

Something New in 2022

Your hands made me and fashioned me; Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments. Psalm 119:73 NASB I have been praying for you and hoping that as you celebrated the birth of our Savior that you took some time to be still and pray, not just into Christmas Day, but also pressing into this upcoming year.

Exalt the Lord

Exalt the Lord! Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all the people were on their way to register for the census, each to his own city. Now Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was betrothed to him, and was pregnant. While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave...

The Master Creator - And His Co-Creators

“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So, they are without excuse.” -Romans 1:20 ESV Every morning my husband and I wake up in our new home, a peaceful condo in the Rochester Hills section of Michigan, with a quaint patio that positions us to witness unbelievable sunrises. What captures my heart and attention the most is when my awe of this orange, purple, and golden hued canvas deepens my appreciation for the Master Painter, God, the Creator of... Read more >>
