Give Him Your Burdens

By Don Doran / a few months ago

Have you ever had a load that was more than you could carry? You started out all right but along the way it just got heavier until you couldn’t go any further? My dad told me a story of when he was in the military. They were on a long march and being non-combatant he didn’t […]

We Get What We Give

By Don Doran / a few months ago

There is an old saying, “What you see is what you get!” However, Jesus said it differently, “What you give is what you get!” “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.” Matt 5:7 If we are on the “hot seat” we are sure to want mercy. Yet the real question is how we act when someone […]

You Can Have The Cookie Later!

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

“Mo, mo,” a little voice pleaded, through the cookie Caleb had just shoved past his crumb-ringed lips.  It is so hard for this Grandma to resist his requests, especially when accompanied by the cutest little smile you have ever seen.  I gathered all my resolve and answered, “Not now Caleb, wait until after lunch.”  The […]

Been taken for granted?

By Lynne Conley / a few months ago

Been taken for granted? Been taken for granted? Imagine how God feels. We all have distractions in our everyday lives. God’s people don’t always sing in the midst of trials.

By Don Doran / a few months ago

Every one of us should have a desire have more power with God and to come under His protection. Several years ago, God impressed upon my mind the importance of having this type of a relationship with Him. I want to have a relationship of protection and power with God. I called it “The Umbrella […]

I Have a New Name

By Don Doran / a few months ago

Yesterday a beautiful three year old came out to greet her brother as he got off the bus. She climbed up on the first step, by her mother, looked at me and smiled. Instantly I lost my heart! She asked if she could have a piece of candy too and of course I gave her […]

Who Are We Kidding?

By Don Doran / a few months ago

Good morning! How has your week gone? There is a saying that has become very popular recently, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!” This is said as if our actions will be secret because we don’t tell. Who do we think we are kidding? “My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them […]

Whose Fault is It?

By Don Doran / a few months ago

Good morning! I hope you have had a great week and enjoy your weekend. I have been hearing several commercials on the radio that tell us our problems are not our fault. One says it isn’t your fault if you have credit card debt and can’t pay it off. Another says it isn’t your fault if […]

Anchored in the Word

By Don Doran / a few months ago

Good morning! What a great day to praise the Lord! Have you ever paid attention to trees that survive the storms? The old oak tree that has withstood the storms of decades. It is there when the storm comes and there when it goes. In fact, it seems to thrive because of the storm. “And he […]

Crazy People Know Jesus!

By Christine Carney / a few months ago

I work in a Community Psychiatric Clinic. I have a client roster of about 300 people. In the teams that I serve, there are those who have bipolar, major depressive and borderline personality disorder. But, the majority of clients are diagnosed with schizophrenia. I also see a garden variety of demon/spirit oppression/possession. One morning, I had […]
