Feeling Lonely?

“I feel forgotten, completely alone – do you know what that feels like?” Image result for lonely

 I know I have said this before and sometimes I forget to Whom I am speaking.  When I cry out those words to my God it is He who first remembers the day and time that He and His Son, Jesus, were torn in part by the sin Jesus carried on the cross.  Jesus truly knows the feeling of aloneness.

When you’re alone and feeling lonely, just remember Jesus is a Savior we share all things human with.  He knows, He understands and He loves us anyway. What a wonderful Savior!

Who gets The Chair?

Do you ever get tired of being in charge? You make a wrong choice or a bad decision and have to pay the consequences. Often, you just grope along in the dark and pretend everything is just fine. That was me before I met Jesus.
Can anyone whose God is Jehovah disagree with Him and have a healthy relationship? I believe NO you can’t and I have reasons for that.

Skeletons in the Desert

Have you ever made one decision and paid what seemed like an eternity for it? Did you leave skeletons on the trail behind you? For the children of Israel, choosing fear and sure failure instead of God’s promises cost them dearly; what would’ve been an 11 day journey turned into 40 years of roaming, murmuring and death.

God’s promises are true; He is the same yesterday, today and forever. I’ve made bad choices as we all have in life. I have learned, that when I make bad choices, I was walking with hostile people in what seemed like a barren desert, leaving skeletons along the way. I could and should have trusted in the promises of God; walking in a path of victory, conquering fear and failure, triumphant because of God’s grace.

Have you ever wondered how many times God has thought “How long shall I bear those who complain against me?”  I have a bad habit of complaining to God about my circumstances, instead of reading His Word and claiming His promises.

Let’s take this week, as it begins, and choose to claim God’s promises through whatever circumstances may arise; let’s leave the skeletons of the past behind.



…in torment. In Luke 16: 23-24, the Rich Man – who was in Hades – stated he was in torment due to the flames he was in.


The historical and revealing account of the Rich Man and Lazarus, the sick beggar who begged outside the Rich Man’s gate, is not a tale or story made up by someone in order to frighten children into doing well. This account is real as Jesus’ accounts that name people (like Lazarus) are always historical accounts. The account itself is told for several reasons. One of which is to relate to people that hell is a real place, a place of torment and so much more.
