when we pass through the storms in our lives we need to remember that first, God loves you. And even though we may want to hide because of our sin or we may think that this is the time when God will turn away from me because of what I have done but no matter what … God loves you. Second, from Numbers 23:19 “God is no mere human! He doesn't tell lies or change his mind. God always keeps his promises.” Which gave us some rules to remember during the storm; God is… Continue
O my Jesus, my Master and Director, strengthen and enlighten me in these difficult moments of my life. I expect no help from people; all my hope is in You. I feel alone in the face of Your demands, O Lord. Despite the fears and qualms of my nature, I am fulfilling Your holy will and desire to fulfill it as faithfully as possible throughout my life and in my death. Jesus, with You I can do all things. Do with me as You please; only give me Your merciful Heart and that is enough for me.

In Paul's epistle to the Ephesians, we find these words: "That [God] would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith" (Eph 3:16). Or, as another… Continue

If only we could be what we hope to be, by the great kindness of our generous God. He asks so little and gives so much, in this life and in the next, to those who love Him sincerely. In a spirit of hope and out of love for Him, let us then bear and endure all things and give thanks for everything that befalls us.

I would like to quickly say a Big Hello to all my friends and family in Christ!
I have been real concerned as most Christians are; about the way Washington is down grading Christianity!
I am terribly upset with the rumors of what our President has said. I say "rumors" because I have not heard him directly. Though, most of us know what persecution the Christian Faith is under right now! It's Time Americans realized that everything we complain about or are unhappy with is due to… Continue
There are millions of people who do not even know what the NEW WORLD ORDER consists of so I will explain a little more about it. The NWO is an global Union under the United Nations and all world religions being united together as ONE! You will have a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, a ONE WORLD PEACE KEEPING FORCE consisting of both Military and police forces called NATO. You will have a ONE WORLD BANKING SYSTEM to which all… Continue
Juanita asked me to share with you a post about my newest book, Mom Needs Chocolate: Hugs, Humor and Hope for Surviving Motherhood. I'm delighted to offer a signed copy in a contest she'll be describing in another post.
I was blessed to my toenails to have both Family Christian Stores and LifeWay offer Mom Needs Chocolate as a "Featured Selection" this month, and was even more awed when God miraculously orchestrated more than 100 sales at a recent Brandon… Continue
Holiness is for us of an essentially supernatural order, and God is its source. The more our souls, by means of mortification, free themselves from sin and are detached from self and creatures, the more the divine action is powerful within us. Christ tells us so. He even tells us that his Father makes use of suffering to render the life of the soul more fruitful. "I am the Vine, and my Father is the husbandman. You are the branches. Every branch that bears fruit, my Father will prune that it… Continue

Is this the worst of times for Christianity? Perhaps it would be wrong to say it is the worst of times, but it can be said with certainty that Christians in the U.S. are experiencing a real, if subtle, persecution for their beliefs. Crisscrossing our country like a ravenous flame… Continue
