Lord’s Prayer: This Day

Lord’s Prayer: This Day

This Day The past is just a memory. The future is only a possibility. Today is a new day, a day of new challenges and new possibilities, a day that will never come again. Jesus said, "give us THIS DAY our DAILY bread." This phrase is one of my favorites and...

Lord’s Prayer: Thy Will Be Done

Lord’s Prayer: Thy Will Be Done

Thy Will Most of the time I want to do God's will. I want to please him. But, if I'm going to be honest, there are times when I want my own way. I want to do, what I want to do, and I don't want anyone to get in my way. Even worse, in those moments, I don't want to...

Lord’s Prayer: Thy Kingdom Come

Lord’s Prayer: Thy Kingdom Come

Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field. When a man discovered the treasure, he went and sold all he had to buy the field.

Lord’s Prayer: Who Art In Heaven

Lord’s Prayer: Who Art In Heaven

Having the right perspective is imperative if we are going to have a fruitful prayer life. Recognizing Father God’s position in heaven is imperative. He has the perspective that we do not.

Lord’s Prayer: Our Father

Lord’s Prayer: Our Father

When we begin our prayers by acknowledging God as “Father,” we are acknowledging his position and our own. We are affirming the fact that we are his beloved children.

Lord’s Prayer: Introduction

Lord’s Prayer: Introduction

I grew up in a church that prized prayers that came straight from the heart. There was no liturgy or repetition. No one read prayers. Instead, we prayed what was in our hearts.

Looking for Jesus

Looking for Jesus

"Is Jesus here?" my Mother asked me when she walked into church. "I came to see Jesus." I didn't know how to answer her. My heart dropped when I heard her ask the question yet again. I wanted so badly to tell her "yes," because I knew how disappointed she would be if...

More Than Enough

More Than Enough

What Exactly is Enough? How can one define enough? In some instances, enough might be a whole lot of something.  At other times, enough might be just a little. Most of the time more than enough sounds like an impossibility; we can't even get enough, let alone more...

Perspective is Everything

Perspective is Everything

Perspective is everything. Those of you reading this blog who know my family know that my father would never be described as a physically large or imposing man. At only five feet, four inches tall, he would easily be described as a short man by most any standards. But...

The Power of the Seed

The Power of the Seed

As I write the title of this blog post, I can't help but think that it is a bit odd to talk about "the power of the seed." How powerful can a seed be? When I think of power, my mind conjures up images of marching armies, tanks, maybe even nuclear bombs. Maybe I've...

One Hundred Times Return

One Hundred Times Return

What if I told you about an investment you could make that would yield one hundred times your original investment? Maybe even more? Well, if you believed me, you would be asking me for more details and signing the papers. This post tells you exactly how to do that,...

Trusting Daddy

Trusting Daddy

I grew up on a dairy farm, and as a kid, we often had to go out and fix the fence that held the cows in. We used barbed wire - four strands attached to fence posts every few feet. It wasn't uncommon for Dad to ask us kids, "want to go fencing?" We were expected to say...

Keeping On

Keeping On

"LeAnn, get out of this barn and out of my life!" My brother, Pete, on his way down to do chores, heard my sister Carla scream those words from inside the barn. Carla had reached the boiling point. She just couldn't take any more. Something had to give. She had been...

Fan the Flame

Fan the Flame

Fire is fascinating. My husband and I love to sit in our back yard around the fire pit in the evening and watch the flames. They are mesmerizing. Maybe deep in our DNA we recognize fire's importance. It's probably safe to say that without fire, our ancient ancestors...
