Water Into Wine

Water Into Wine

Water Into Wine Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” Then he told them, “Now draw some out.” The master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He called the bridegroom aside and said, “You have saved the best till now.”  — John 2:7-10 It’s a simple

Grace for the Mess

For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and His gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one Man, Jesus Christ. — Romans 5:17 NLT The meaning of life. The wasted

Happiness is a decision

Don’t Pet the Peeves

Be patient, bearing with one another in love. — Ephesians 4:2 NIV He picks his teeth in public. She has this odd manner of clearing her voice every few moments. He can’t watch the news without spouting his opinions. She must apply her makeup with a putty knife. He cuts off cars in traffic. She

Jesus’ Tears Give You Permission to Shed Your Own

Martha sat in a damp world, cloudy, tearful. And Jesus sat in it with her. I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in Me, even though they die like everyone else, will live again. — John 11:25 NLT Hear those words in a Superman tone, if you like. Clark Kent descending from

The Power of Praying In Jesus’ Name, Amen

IT troubles you, fatigues you, shames you. IT is the disease you can’t heal, the job you can’t stomach, the marriage you can’t fix, the rage you can’t tame. IT hurts. IT looms over life. Two towering letters, tall and defiant. IT! They march like Frankenstein’s monster. Each step a thud. Each thud an earthquake.

Are you suffering today? Are you crying out to God? Do you feel alone or like He doesn’t understand? You are not alone and He absolutely does understand. Jesus knows deep pain and He is right with you loving you through this!

The Fog of the Broken Heart

  The fog of the broken heart. It’s a dark fog that slyly imprisons the soul and refuses easy escape. It’s a silent mist that eclipses the sun and beckons the darkness. It’s a heavy cloud that honors no hour and respects no person. Depression, discouragement, disappointment, doubt… all are companions of this dreaded presence.

Grace for the Moment for Families

For Kids: Jesus Knows Some people might think, Jesus, it’s easy for You up there. You’re in Heaven. You just don’t know how hard it is down here. But those people would be wrong. The Bible says He “is able to understand” (Hebrews 4:15 ICB). Jesus knows. He knows because He Himself left Heaven and

Jesus: God with Us

  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light

Pray! God will help you. He’s listening and He cares about every detail of your life.

God Will Help You in Your Everyday Life

  Jesus was attending a wedding with the disciples and His mother, Mary, when she approached Him with a strange and seemingly irrelevant problem. “They have no more wine,” she told Him. — John 2:3 NIV Had I been the angel on call that day, I would have intervened. I would have placed a wing

HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED! Happy Easter, friends! We are so thankful that we get to celebrate our risen Lord today! Aren’t you? He loves you! He died just for you!

He Did It Just for You

  Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” — John 20:29 When God entered time and became a man, He who was boundless became bound. Imprisoned in flesh. Restricted by weary-prone muscles and eyelids. For more than three
