Ernie and a Lot of Good People in Beckley

My trip to North Carolina this time ended up being an extended trip because me and Mabel broke down.  ☹… But, because of family support and good people—everything turned out alright. 😉

I’ve only mentioned Mabel a few times in the past, but now I’ll introduce her properly because I’m looking to do more with her and Continue reading “Ernie and a Lot of Good People in Beckley”

Spirit to Spirit

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” –St. John 4:24

I wanted to write about this verse, but initially, I was stumped.  Jesus had said it all.  Then the question came to me, “What is a spirit?”  …so I looked it up.

One definition of the word spirit is: ‘the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character, the soul.’  That’s beautiful right?

After reading the definition, it reminded me of why we should Continue reading “Spirit to Spirit”

Second Writes

My old computer before it and my site crashed.

So, this is unusual.  I attempted to back up and restore a blog site that I created a while back and failed miserably.  The site was up running smoothly but I had to tweak it just a little bit more.  Just enough to the point where I broke it. Shortly after that my computer crashed.  Now, I was in a jam.

The hosting company I was using didn’t offer much help because they “didn’t support” some of what I wanted to do—but they did have this other thing that they could absolutely Continue reading “Second Writes”

New beginnings….

2nd Corinthians 7:1 (MSG) – With promises like this to pull us on, dear friends, let’s make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without. Lets make our entire lives fit and holy temples for the worship of God.

So how do we get a new beginning? We’ve made mistakes. Ok…let’s be honest, we flat out rolled around in sin…enjoyed it even. It doesn’t really matter what brand of sin you were in; from lying to murder…it’s all sin. The Bible says sin has pleasure for a season. But did you REALLY enjoy it? Do you remember the last time you felt close to God? Do you remember when the Bible spoke to you with clarity? Have you ever prayed, “I miss you God”? That’s actually the reason I started this blog. I am in this place right now. I missed the voice of God. I missed feeling “whole”. This blog isn’t for everyone. Its for those of us who, like me, lost their way for a little while.

The good news is, you and I are actually ripe for Continue reading “New beginnings….”

Fear Not, Keep It Moving

fearNot

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness…”  –Isaiah 41:10


Often, we face situations when fear and doubt try to flood into our hearts and mind to create panic and despair.   In those times we should remember that many years ago it was written in the word that we should fear not, remain calm and know that God is with us.  And whether you acknowledge God as God… or some source of your inner power and strength; know that He is there and is always willing and able to help—if you allow it.  When you do, you will see that you have more ability than you ever imagined.  And, after you receive Him, be thankful and glad.
