Push the “reset” button

I started today filled with good intentions. I started out by posting about being blessed because Jesus is alive.  Then I started running errands with the intent of spreading cheer.  Bank, that went well.  I wished her a Happy Easter. I moved up the highway, first driver cut me off, turn up KLOVE.  second driver... Continue Reading →

Why is it so hard to have Faith?

Luke 8:22-25:  We are talking about understanding the word.  Take this for example, we know that at least 4 of Jesus' disciples are experienced fishermen.  This passage mentions a squall: a sudden burst of winds around 40 mph,  which does not last.  It does not say a terrible storm, a hurricane.  The point is at least 4...

Taking the difficulty out of prayer

Matthew 6:5-14:  The disciples asked Jesus how to pray. It is a question many still have today.  The answer is not a long drawn out prayer.  The answer is found in the Lord's prayer.  It is actually just a few lines.  We give up our praises acknowledging that God is in charge. We pray for... Continue Reading →

Psalm 57:  This format of prayer is the one that most of us use.  We come to God and tell him our worries and our troubles. It differs from the Lord’s Prayer.  The Lord’s Prayer starts with Praise to God. But is it really? David starts out asking God to have mercy on him and... Continue Reading →

” I think I can, wooh wooh, …”

Matthew 17: 19-20: I don't get it, I keep hearing that Nothing is impossible with God.  I also understand that all I need is faith the size of a mustard seed.  Then why aren't the mountains move for me?  Why does Jesus make it sound instantaneous?  In Luke it is described that if you tell...
