Discouragement’s Cure

Discouragement’s Cure

Recently I had an opportunity to visit Bass Pro Shops Big Cedar Lodge on Table Rock Lake near Branson, MO for a wedding. Through a front gate, along a winding road, then a scenic ride on a shuttle, brought us to the site of the wedding. At the end of a long underground walkway we emerged to see this magnificent site set in a reflecting pool overlooking Table Rock. To the left of The End of the Trail sculpture sat…

A Reason to be Grateful

A Reason to be Grateful

For the past five months I’ve been learning new software to audio record my God’s Little Miracle Book (I, II, & III) series. After recording in two-hour segments at the local Johnson County Library MakerSpace and spending looooong hours in editing, they are now finished and up on Amazon.com for Audible, Amazon download, and iTunes. I was inspired to do this project when the director of a nursing home I visit every week for my chaplain duties asked me to…

A Note From A Reader

A Note From A Reader

A writer loves to hear from their readers, and I’m no exception. When I was at the Christian Writers Conference in Fort Scott recently, I met a new friend, Maranatha. She bought one of my God’s Little Miracle Books to use as a devotional to start the day with her homeschooled kids. I received an email from her recently which read: Dear Sally, I just wanted to pop in and say your first book on miracles is proving to be…

God’s Solution

God’s Solution

  Psalm 37:1 Do not fret because of evildoers, be not envious toward wrongdoers. We can waste a lot of time getting our tails in a knot from the things we see and hear going on around us. In these days we have multiple opportunities every day to be incensed at what we see and hear both at home and abroad. Often we must remind ourselves Who is in charge and that He has a plan. Sometimes we jump into…

God’s Promise

God’s Promise

Isaiah 60:15 Whereas you have been forsaken and hated with no one passing through, I will make you an everlasting pride, a joy from generation to generation. Have you ever felt God has abandoned you? That He has forgotten your name? That you no longer matter to Him? If so, take heart. This scripture is for you. Even from the first word, “whereas” this is meant to encourage you. “Whereas” carries a meaning of “being burdened, oppressed, in subjection or…

Fear vs. Faith

Fear vs. Faith

Deuteronomy 1:29 “Then I (Moses) said to you, ‘Do not be shocked, or fear them.’” When Moses was about to die, he recounted the events he and the Israelites shared together in the desert. Today’s passage comes from that recollection. When the Israelites neared the land that God had promised them long before they left Egypt, they sent twelve spies to check out the territory. When the spies saw the Anakim, the giants that lived there, ten came back terrified….

Our Unique God

Our Unique God

Isaiah 64:4 For from of old they have not heard nor perceived by ear, neither has the eye seen a God besides Thee, who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him. Of all the world religions of all the ages, there is no God who forgives sins, who came to earth to tell us of the One True God, who offered His own self on a cross as payment for our sins, and then died. But there…

Heavenly Bellboy?

Heavenly Bellboy?

Mark 11:24 (Jesus said) “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they shall be granted you.” When our desires are His desires we can ask Him to intervene in a situation and He will. Some people call this, “Having no mind in the matter.” In other words, we need to put our agenda aside. Ask God to pray through us whatever His will is in a given…

Jesus, the Bread of Life

Jesus, the Bread of Life

John 6:33 (Jesus said)“For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” In this passage, the 5,000 people who had shared the little boy’s five loaves and two fish, asked Jesus what they should do to work the works of God. Jesus told them that the work of God was to believe in Him, the One God sent to earth (John 6:28-29). He then told them He was the bread…

Jesus, Conquering Hero

Jesus, Conquering Hero

Colossians 2:15 When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him. Most of us know the Easter story, but fewer know the scope of what Jesus accomplished for us in those terrible hours. Jesus removed our sin (John 1:29 and Hebrews 9:26). He removed God’s wrath from us (Hebrews 2:17). He reconciled us to God (Romans chapters 10 and 11). When Jesus was whipped He purchased our healing…
