What Next???     22 Comments
With the clock counting down, I could only sit watching for a miracle comeback... yet the comeback was nowhere in sight.


Engaged, and Discouraged.     3 Comments
Being engaged is suppose to be one of the most wonderful times of a person's life... and yet it seems even in the happiest of moments someone or something is still trying to bring us down...


Everything You Need     2 Comments
With the current economic situation, times are tough. It is times like these that make us wonder what we are going to do, and where we will find the things we need. In this devotion, Rod Smith tells of how when times were tough, someone a little bit more powerful took care of Rod's needs, just as He will yours...


Christmas Love    
Christmas is the story of true love... a story about a God who loved us enough to send His Son to die for us, knowing the price He was paying...


God's Unfailing Promises     3 Comments
When things seem to be going badly, we often wonder where God is, and if He is really going to keep His promises. The truth is, God not only keeps His promises, but does it in a way that is more amazing and wonderful than we could ever imagine... even if at the moment it seems He has completely forgotten about us...


Icy Roads     2 Comments
With so many challenges in life, it is very easy for us to want to take charge and try to handle everything ourselves, but in the end we find ourselves worse off, and crying for the Help of the Lord, who is always faithful...


A Winter Snow     1 Comments
When we look at things, we often see what they currently are, and not what they can be. The same holds true for people, but God is able to take even below freezing temperatures and make them into something beautiful...


Should We Fear Death?     1 Comments
Death is something that continuously intrigues the human mind... so much so that we are surrounded by movies concerning the afterlife, books explaining the afterlife, and even philosophers trying to explain it... yet there's one Book that gives a clear definition, and tells whether we as Christians should be fearful of what many claim to be "the unknown..."


Trusting God     13 Comments
Sometimes it isn't easy for us to trust God, and these are usually the times where we need to trust Him the most...


I Will Come to You     6 Comments
Have you ever felt like no one understands you, or that you are all alone? Have you ever wondered what to do next, or even if it was worth the struggle?


Satan Runs Faster     4 Comments
We all have areas of failure, whether it is noticeable by others or not. We all fall short of the glory of God, and fall to temptations. And it seems that Satan is right there, continuously telling us that we "cannot defeat him."


God, Are You Listening?     10 Comments
Have you ever prayed to God for something, only to be left wondering if God was even listening?


Forgiving Your "Dr. Mengele"     1 Comments
I think in almost everyone's life, there is at least one person you absolutely do not want to forgive. One person who has said something, or done something to you or someone very close...


Where did God Go???     1 Comments
Sometimes we feel out of touch with God, or we look at all of the terrible things happening in the world and ask how a loving God could let them happen... sometimes we wonder if God is really keeping His promises, and if He is still even there...


Trying Times     7 Comments
With gas prices around $4 a gallon, foreclosures on the rise, and the price of necessities such as food and electricity increasing, many families are struggling to survive. Struggling to keep food on the table, and a roof over their heads... and some families are at the breaking point, a point where they are waiting for the final notice on their home. A point where they are asking "how a loving God could let this happen..."




Matthew 23:12
[12] And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Isaiah 40:28-31
[28] Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. [29] He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. [30] Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: [31] But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

1 John 1:9
[9] If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Psalms 91:1-16
[1] He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. [2] I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. [3] Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. [4] He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. [5] Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; [6] Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. [7] A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. [8] Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. [9] Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; [10] There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. [11] For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. [12] They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. [13] Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. [14] Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. [15] He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. [16] With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Romans 8:38-39
[38] For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, [39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
