God Wants You To Love Yourself

By Carol Clemans / 3 years ago

Did you know God wants you to love you?  You might want to argue with me and say, “No, we are supposed to be humble. Loving yourself is selfish!”  My response, “No it’s not!”  Let’s see what God says to do. I remember Jesus was asked, “What is the greatest commandment?” He immediately responded, “Hear, […]

A Simple Question…No Simple Answer

By Sheri Boulet / 3 years ago

Why? In my life I have heard the question so many times. “Just because” was usually the answer when I couldn’t come up with anything better when my children were small. I know, it wasn’t adequate for their young and curious minds, but at times that was the best I could come up with. Now […]

The Eye of the Beholder

By Holly Settles / 3 years ago

Many years ago, I went through a personal battle of self-will and finding “my own way” in life.  I was raised in church, but came to a point where I found myself in a state of rebellion and bitterness.  I was an angry 18 year old girl, trying to figure out my place.  I made […]

Temptation Ahead

By Susan Niswonger / 3 years ago

It was one of those beautiful autumn days that you just have to take advantage of, especially if you live in Michigan.  You can ignore the signs, pretend it won’t happen this year, continue wearing summery clothes and refuse to turn on the furnace until November, but deep down inside you know winter is on […]

When It’s Right to Suffer Wrong

By Sheri Boulet / 3 years ago

When It’s Right to Suffer Wrong My Pastor preached a wonderful message from Psalm 69 titled “The Zeal of Thine House” from verse 9. It spoke right to me, as usual. I am afraid I have been *accused* of being over-zealous in my relationship with God. So, just to set the record straight… I am. […]

Nevertheless

By Susan Niswonger / 3 years ago

It all started in The Garden.   God had commanded Adam who instructed Eve that the tree in the middle of the garden was off limits.  Eve approached the tree, looked longingly at the forbidden fruit and wondered “what if?”  Satan, who never misses an opportunity, begin to persuade Eve that God hadn’t really meant what […]

Remember Who? Why?

By George Nava / 3 years ago

  Ecc 12:1  Remember your Creator while you are young, before the bad times come–before the years come when you say, “I have wasted my life.” Ecc 12:2  Remember your Creator while you are young, before the time comes when the sun and the moon and the stars become dark to you–before problems come again […]

The Good Old Days

By Susan Niswonger / 3 years ago

The Good Old Days We have all heard stories of the “good old days.”  It is amazing how time erases all of the “bad old parts” out of the “good old days” and they become a romanticized memory that we long to experience once again.  My mom love to talk of her childhood on the […]
