A Closer Look… Seeing and Hearing

Webmaster A CLOSER LOOK!

Isaiah 11:3 — “AND HE WILL DELIGHT IN THE FEAR OF THE LORD, AND HE WILL NOT JUDGE BY WHAT HIS EYES SEE, NOR MAKE A DECISION BY WHAT HIS EARS HEAR”. Oh, that we would be as wise as this scripture guides us. How often have I seen something or heard something and immediately received it as “truth” and …

A Closer Look… God Caused Me to Hunger

Webmaster A CLOSER LOOK!

While reading one of my devotionals, I was led to the scripture of Deuteronomy 8:3 which reminded the Israelites of God sending them the manna from heaven.  It wasn’t the “manna” that struck me but the words prior to “and I gave you manna.” I checked three different translations and all three left me with an awestruck understanding that I …

A Closer Look… Ruins

Webmaster A CLOSER LOOK!

A Closer Look… I Give You Peace! RUINS — A falling down; the remains of something destroyed. People pay thousands of dollars to go to a distant place and stand in the midst of “ruins.” They stand in awe imagining what that world must have been like in its day of glory. That monument will probably never be brought back …

A Closer Look… I Give You Peace!

Webmaster A CLOSER LOOK!

I recently had a conversation with someone very dear to me about “peace.” I have thought much about “peace” in these days and this is what I came up with. Peace has to begin in me. In Luke 19:42 the Word says: “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace!” All over the …

A Closer Look… How Great is the Distance

Webmaster A CLOSER LOOK!

“How great is the distance that separates man from God.” As I read these words one of my morning devotionals, I could not move from them. It was as though a rock had fallen upon my chest and I read these words over and over. There is no ruler, no measuring tape that can give me a “distance” between God …

Youth Summerfest

Webmaster Youth

“Summerfest was honestly one of the best experiences of my life.  Other than playing games, meeting new people, and being closer to my friends, I had felt a connection with God and understood the preachings.  The praises we had were filled with joy and worship, and all the people were really amazing.  Summerfest and this time with the youth group …

A CLOSER LOOK… Five More Minutes

Webmaster A CLOSER LOOK!

This morning I listened to a new song written and sung by Scotty McCreery – FIVE MORE MINUTES.  Even while listening, my mind raced through so many times that I wished I had “five more minutes” to bask in the enjoyment or the specialness of the moment. I don’t know about all of you, but it seems as though my …

A CLOSER LOOK… Kitchen Table

Webmaster A CLOSER LOOK!

Yesterday we had several people in our house for a gathering and it was wonderful.  On the kitchen table is where we placed all the food to be shared — there were many bowls and plates and drinks; forks, spoons, knives; coffee, cream, sugar;  iced tea, juices, etc. etc. etc.– everything that makes a gathering so enjoyable. On my kitchen …
