Monday’s Meditation

Do I Take Advice?

“You know, you should really put some socks on that baby’s feet. It’s cold outside.” “Remember, feed him vegetables and then fruits otherwise he’ll never eat vegetables!” “Don’t feed your daughter french fries. They’ll make her overweight.” “When my children were little…” These are just some of the many, many “instructions” that have been given to […] Read more…

Continuing the series on Proverbs 31:10-12 and 13, let’s take a look at verse 14. “She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.” (KJV) In verse 13, the Proverbs wife focuses on providing clothing and linens for her family.

Peace in All Circumstances

Do you have peace? Or are you finding it hard to rest in the Lord and let God’s peace comfort and sustain you? Lately I have been feeling much unrest about different situations in my life. Since I don’t know the future, the only choice I have is to pray for the peace of God, […] Read more…

Two Sparrows

“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Monday’s Meditation – Proverbs 31:13 – Hard Work and Diligence

This week, I’m continuing my series on the principles of the Proverbs 31 wife. The first meditation was written on Proverbs 31:10-12. “She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.” Proverbs 31:13 Did you know that in Latin, flax means “most useful”? This is what our hands are to be, useful and not […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation–A Day Late

Please forgive me for not posting yesterday! It seems that it’s the season for colds and my family has been blessed to have them for the last two weeks.

Monday’s Meditation – The Patience of the Lord

Do you remember the old country song by Alabama called “I’m in a Hurry”? The chorus goes as such: I’m in a hurry to get things done Oh I rush and rush until life’s no fun All I really gotta do is live and die But I’m in a hurry and don’t know why. This […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – Crouching at Your Door

Today I went to visit a friend who had a baby girl five days ago, and due to that wonderful visit, the fun of the Super Bowl last night, and ladies’ Bible study at church tonight, I wasn’t able to post my meditation until now (9:56 pm, CST). Somehow, I think it was meant to […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – Skipping Devotions

An odd title for a blog entry about the Bible, right? But I have to admit that I didn’t get to my devotions today. There’s my big confession :) Which makes me think, does anyone else struggle with doing their devotions on a day-to-day basis? I ask God to prick my conscience when I skip […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – Isaiah 9:6, the Prophecy of Jesus

During the Advent season, our family has been memorizing some verses that are related to the prophecy about Jesus that happened several hundred years before he was born.

Did you know you can grow grapes in North Dakota? You can, and here’s proof! John 15:5 says, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit. Apart from me, you can do nothing.” God’s Word is useful in helping us […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – The Usefulness of the Bible

Is the Bible still “useful” in this day and age? Were the people of the past simple-minded, stupidly depending on a book full of stories to tell them how to live? Are we so enlightened in modern times that we no longer have need of God’s Word to guide us in decision making and choice […] Read more…
