• I read this passage today found in the Psalms:


    “In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.”  (NKJV - Psalm 94:19)


    Have you ever had those days where you feel overwhelmed? Perhaps you’ve had a time or season when doubts, worries and stresses of every kind seemed to take over your mind and body. If so, the verse above reminds us that we can find relief and comfort in what God provides. His peace is the only satisfaction when stress has taken over. His comfort is the only soothing remedy when worry dominates. His reassuring promises are the only words that satisfy when doubt rears its ugly head.  

  • I took a Dale Carnegie class many years ago and learned the value of people’s names. Carnegie taught: “Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” I believe that is very true. Amazingly, God is the one who knew that truth first! I shared this great verse from the Bible in my sermon last Sunday:


    Isaiah 43:1: “Fear not for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.”


    God knows you!

  • Billy Sunday, the preaching evangelist of a century ago once said: "Temptation is the devil looking through the keyhole. Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in."


    I faced temptation last Sunday! I caved in and I got caught!
