Learning to Let Go

Several years ago, I had to clean out my parents house where they had lived over forty years. They had accumulated books, photos, clothing, papers, memorabilia, and even things that belonged to my grandfather. What a mess! After that unpleasant job, I decided to clean my own home.

My guest this week was Cynthia Ruchti and we discussed her latest book, Afraid of the Dark. The theme was letting go of past emotions and attitudes as well as unused possessions.

Psalms to Calm the Anxious Heart

September 1, 2020

Remember the story of the storm on the Sea of Galilee when Jesus slept in the boat? He was peaceful. The disciples, veteran sailors,  were terrified for their lives even though they had seen Jesus heal others. This time they were in danger, and they forgot his power. That’s easy for all of us to do.

This week my guest, Becky Harling, told about her problem with worry and how she overcame.

Are We Ready for September?

September 1, 2020

Let’s bow to our knees and pray… Father, we are thankful your eyes roam the earth and see our hearts as well as the events around us. We trust in your perfect wisdom, yet we tremble as men ignore truth, justice, and righteousness. The law is not upheld, the virus is spreading, right is twisted, and angry folk destroy our cities. Bless us and our children with a quiet and tranquil life. Draw the lost to yourself. Heal the injured and sick and bring justice to the evil. Protect our heritage. We throw ourselves on you for protection. Give us wisdom to teach our children and speak your truth. Thank you for surrounding us with your love.

Welcome August 2020

August 1, 2020

Let’s bow to our knees and pray… Dear Father, our world has changed rapidly and dramatically. As we see the virus spread and cities explode in violence, we can easily give way to fear. Remind us that You knew all the pitfalls before you breathed life into Adam. Help us remember Your power. You formed the plan of redemption before Satan even broached the first temptation. You calmed the storm when the disciples feared for their lives and You fed the multitude on with one boy’s lunch. We praise you for being the Alpha and Omega and for defeating death. Grant us Your peace and courage as the new school year starts and keep us faithful as we fulfill your call on our lives. In Jesus name,  Amen.
