NO FAVORITES!! ALL THE SAME!!

I was listening to the conversation of some children and they were talking about one of their classmates being the teachers pet. Do you remember the days in school when that ONE person seemed to get to do everything and you didn’t get to do very much? There may have been times that the teachers […]

BRAVE!! ADVENTUROUS!! AFRAID OF NOTHING!!

I have watched children around water and heard their parents say, “You have to watch them, they aren’t afraid of anything.” I’ve seen children climbing places that you shouldn’t be climbing heard parents say “They will try anything.” I wonder how many times our Heavenly Father looks down at His children and speaks these words?

AMERICA!! WE STILL NEED GOD!!

I was born in the rural part of St. Clair County in Alabama. I started to school in 1960 at Iola Roberts Elementary School in Pell City. Every morning before our class started we read the Bible, prayed a pray, and Pledged Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. We prayed for […]

Two groups of people who united and worshiped God for one reason, to lift up Jesus. My devotional verses this morning talked about the importance of […]

PRAYER!! LEARNING TO PRAY!!

Pastor Cobb talked about prayer last night in the revival meeting. He talked about having a time each day to communicate with God and he talked about taking brief moments during to day to whisper a prayer over the happenings in your life. Most of us have been taught to say a blessing before we […]

FORGIVE!! LET IT GO!!

I know people who can tell you a story today that happened to them 20 years ago and still be just as angry and hurt as the day it happened. Holding grudges and not being willing to forgive others for their wrong doings will still the very life out of you. It is like trying […]
