Make Time for Yourself

One of my first memories of flying in an airplane was when a very pretty flight attendant appeared and started instructing the passengers about safety. What stood out to me the most then, and every time I have boarded a plane since, is, “Put your oxygen mask on first before helping others.”  Why is this so vital in ensuring survival? If you don’t have your oxygen mask on your own face, you won’t be alive long enough to help anyone else of course.

Caring for the Next Generation

When my children were younger, I remember deciding to purchase them a new jacket and wearing my threadbare coat for yet another year. This proves true the quote: “A real parent is someone who puts their kids above their selfish wants and needs.” These words sound like they were taken straight from the pages of the Bible. Our Father God demonstrated the ultimate selfless act when He gave His only Son to redeem humanity. Unfortunately, we have seen an increase in behavior from our peers toward the next generation that doesn’t mimic God’s actions. We often fall in line with King Hezekiah in 2 Kings 20.

Stop Procrastinating...Get On With It!

Maybe you can relate to Craig from the UK. He wrote in a blog, “I bought a book called 52 Steps To Defeating Procrastination. I’ve still never read it - it was over 10 years ago, and I’m not even sure where it is now.”

Refuse to be Distracted

 

There is a billboard between my house and my place of work that reads, “Don’t drive distracted.” I have to admit that the billboard reminds me of what happened a few years back. I was driving to meet a friend for lunch one sunny day when I suddenly remembered an important phone call I had forgotten to make. I immediately stretched to reach my back seat where I had left my cell phone. I took my eyes off the road for just a few seconds. Immediately I heard a loud bang; I had crashed into the car in front of me. My truck was bashed in, and the car I hit badly damaged. Thank God no one was hurt physically, but the damage to my wallet was ginormous.

Recapturing the Joy of Motherhood

Once the New York Timeswas asked to help a group of club women decide on the twelve greatest women in the United States. After due consideration, the editors replied, “The twelve greatest women in the United States are women who have never been heard of outside of their own homes.”

What Makes a Woman "Phenomenal"

What makes a lady to be considered “phenomenal”?  Is it the one with a sassy personality? A fine stature?  A beautiful face?  A cut above the rest of us?

The Power of Giving

Have you ever given to someone and felt something powerful in the act? There is power released when we give. I read an amazing story that illustrates perfectly the thoughts in my spirit about what even a small gift has the power to accomplish.

Grace to Finish Well

There is one thing I absolutely love, and that is a clean house. I came to that realization a few years back, after I had returned from a ministry trip to find my house in shambles. My children had entertained their friends with some sort of party in my absence. After I couldn’t get them to admit to the reason for the mess, I immediately got into my “cleaning mode.” After hours of cleaning and rearranging to my satisfaction, I sat on my reclining chair with a glass of water and a sense of a “Yeah! I got it done” feeling swept over my soul. This was the first time I had admitted to what my children had always jokingly accused me of, saying that while people will be worshiping in heaven, I will be cleaning.

Say "Yes" to Jesus: The Star of Christmas

I took a stroll to a nearby local departmental store on the evening of November 1, just to window shop. To my surprise, Christmas lights greeted me throughout the displays, a mere day after Halloween! All the bells and whistles of Christmas caught me off guard. It was hard to imagine Christmas displays so far from Christmas.

I Want to Forgive, But How?

An offense creates highly detrimental weather between us and our fellow humans or even God. Holding onto an offense is never profitable because it allows our souls to be poisoned by the slime of bitterness, resentments, anger, rage, and un-forgiveness that brings about a wounded spirit.
