How Do You Say That?

Posted by Woods Watson on

I am not good at languages. I have actually studied five foreign languages in school and have made good grades in those classes. Yet I cannot carry on a coherent conversation in any of them. I need an interpreter. When I have gone on mission trips we have had interpreters explain what we have...

But That’s Not Fair

Posted by on

As my daughters were growing up, sometimes they got caught up in an over-focus on the idea of what is fair. If they weren’t treated fairly at school, home, or especially in a situation that dealt with the other sister, they would certainly let their concern be voiced. Even as adults, we...

Why God Gives Discernment

Posted by Woods Watson on

Dad and I used to have roast preacher for Sunday lunch. We would criticize and pick apart the sermon or the church direction. All our efforts to affect change in my home church were rebuffed by the establishment, and we were labeled – by some - as trouble makers. One day we were convicted...

Posted by Premie Joseph on

Posted by JoLynn Burns on

"Let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16             It is amazing how God works in ways we do not understand. Miss Jane didn't know it, but, when she decided to bake...

Solid Rock

Posted by on

Rocks and rock formations are amazing things. Think about the Grand Canyon and all of its majesty. Bedrock offers a solid footing on which to build a structure that is sturdy and will have a good foundation. Jesus Christ identifies that the confession of Him as Lord and Savior is what the...

The REAL Power Plant

Posted by Woods Watson on

Men love power tools. While there are some efficient battery-powered tools on the market, nothing motivates a man like holding the plugged-in-to-the-energy-source power tool. You can almost hear the “Home Improvement” tool man Tim Allen barking! People loved God’s power tool...

I am the Vine

Posted by Claudia Wright on

When my children were small, I had a beautiful Schefflera plant. One morning as I went in to “mist” it, I realized that one of the branches had turned yellow and was wilting. Upon inspection, I discovered that branch had been disconnected from the plant, (which probably had been...

Reserved for a Special Purpose

Posted by Woods Watson on

A late friend of mine in Texas had trouble with circulation in his legs. Eventually, he had to allow the surgeons to remove both of his legs below his knees. After the surgery, he got around well in his wheelchair and car, but it was not without a struggle. When he went shopping, he wanted to...
