Have you ever prayed for something and seemed to be ignored? We’ve heard many times that the Bible is its own best commentary. When our prayers seem unanswered we need go no farther than the Word for understanding (James 4:3; Psalm 66:18; Proverbs 1:22-33; 1 John 5:16; Hebrews 12:8 plus all of the verses instructing […]The post The Gift of Weakness appeared first on Mom's Blog.
Do you believe in heroes? Are there any anymore? Yes, there are. Uh, I mean, no there are not. Well, maybe. It depends. It depends on what you are looking for in a hero. There ARE people who do heroic deeds, save people from imminent danger or death. There are people who give their own […]The post Heroes Part Two–Are There Any? appeared first on Mom's Blog.
You may notice that my blog posts have been taken down. At this time in my life I hope to concentrate on removing the “beam” from my own eye. Thank you to those friends who have encouraged me in my blogging for the past several years. May the Lord bless and keep you. LisaThe post Posts Removed appeared first on Mom's Blog.
Some time ago a sweet friend and pastor’s wife asked me if I had any ideas for church hospitality. I’ve thought about it. What is it? Is it wanted? Is it effective? The best church hospitality I ever experienced was about 30 plus years ago. My husband and infant son and I were looking for […]The post Church Hospitality appeared first on Mom's Blog.
In Matthew 7:7,8 we read, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.” But what about those prayers you prayed and didn’t receive what […]The post I Asked But Didn’t Receive appeared first on Mom's Blog.
The following was presented at a Mother/Daughter banquet for which the theme was given to the speaker, and a gospel presentation requested. It is given here at the request of a friend. May 2015, Calvary Bible Church, Berkeley Springs, West Virginia Part 1 The Gospel and What Follows Give honor to whom honor is due, […]The post Some of the Ladies To Whom Scripture Tips Its Hat appeared first on Mom's Blog.
So far since arriving back in the US, or “the land of plenty” as Becky Ebanks, a friend on the island calls it, we’ve been visiting with family. It’s been nice to reconnect with our children and grandchildren. We’re still looking for the vehicle God has chosen for us. We’re looking for one that seats […]The post Visiting Family in Maryland appeared first on Mom's Blog.
I’m loving this time in my life. Reality has sunk in. Cynical? Nah. Seeing more clearly? Yeah. During my first fifty years my heroes were fictitious characters with real names; created by biographers, themselves or my rose colored eye sight. Today my heroes are real people who live, struggle, fall down, and get back up. […]The post Heroes appeared first on Mom's Blog.
In Acts 16 Paul answers this question for the Philippian jailer, “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved and thy house.” If the Philippian jailer and his household believe on the Lord Jesus Christ they will be saved. Our next question could be, “what does it mean to believe on the […]The post What Must I Do To Be Saved? appeared first on Mom's Blog.
People are gifted at different things and we tend to think that what is easy for us is easy for most. I know a lady who is faithful to send encouraging cards to people. It is difficult for her to understand why everyone doesn’t send cards because she finds it to be extremely [...]
Sometimes it’s good to ask why we do things the way we do them. When I was growing up in a pastor’s home, going to every activity the church offered, helping on the bus, teaching in classes, going to camps, cheering at sports events, I was absorbing ideas about how things are to be [...]
As a full time wife and mother, money is NOT one of my biggest resources. So when I do get some I can immediately think of something to do with it! Are you where I am? Recently I was thinking of oh so many things I [...]
As Mommies we love our children.  Occasionally we find ourselves dragging along, doing nothing particularly well, with no one especially happy with us.  This can be a signal that there is a need for some “Mommy Time!” What is Mommy Time?   Mommy time is a regularly scheduled (as much as is possible) daily [...]
This morning a friend emailed asking for scriptures to use in teaching her son about the appearance of a Christian young man. I thought others might be interested as well. In 1 Corinthians 11:14 we find that it is a shame for a man to have long hair.  In 1 Thessalonians 5:22 we are told to [...]
Have you noticed lately how scruffy many of our young men prefer to look? You’ve seen them. Their hair looks like it should have been cut just a week or 3 ago. They haven’t shaved in a week. When you mention a shave or a haircut they are evasive. You may be [...]
Train up a child in the way he should go, or the way he is bent.  Do not try to re-bend him in a direction of your own choosing. When Steven was small he showed obvious tenderness toward all living things.  It was painful to him to kill even a bug.  We knew we had some [...]
We have been set up! Don’t be alarmed. God did it! God loves to set his people up to let their light shine and glorify their Father in Heaven. This happens repeatedly in our lives. In some way God sees to it that the going gets tough for us and [...]
As I was reading in 1 Samuel chapter 13 the LORD revealed one way I could eliminate a good sized chunk of stress in my life. Saul was waiting on the prophet Samuel. The prophet was to offer a sacrifice before Saul could proceed with his battle plans. Things were looking rather [...]
“Remove not the ancient landmark which thy fathers have set.”   I’ve read that lots of times but this morning the verse speaks to me.   In the past I’ve read the verse and thought about the landmarks that divided property.   Of course it would be wrong for a person to arbitrarily move the property line, stealing [...]
There are many reasons to teach but the one I am concentrating on today is a benefit for the teacher.  Today is the last of a 13 lesson series of Bible studies for ladies and I realize that one of the greatest benefits for me has been that I am forced to think about the inconsistencies [...]
As a mother of seven, ages 14-24 I often have one-on-one talks with young people.  This morning I talked with a young person who could be said to be gently pushing the boundaries in the areas of dress, music and hairstyle.  As I talked a clear analogy came to mind.We often ask our young people [...]
You remember that the virtuous woman’s husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land. If we revere our husband others will too. If we revere him in the home, our children will. If we treat him as though he knows what he is talking about [...]
Have you ever felt the stress of knowing that some day you will have to give an account of every idle word you’ve ever spoken? Have you ever experienced the guilt of Satan’s accusations concerning sins you have already confessed and forsaken? Have you ever wondered about the sins you have committed since [...]
For our 25th anniversary in 2007 our children surprised their Daddy and me with new laptops.  My husband had wanted one for some time, but I hadn’t even dreamed of owning one myself.  Quickly the computer and I bonded.    This blog Steven created was a major factor in that.  Fast forward to the [...]
The last few days I have been remembering various times God has answered our quick intense cries. One such time in particular continues to play over in my mind. We were living in Mississippi at the time, and the children and I were burning trash in a barrel in the back yard. [...]
