....Life can get so hectic. People can get so caught up in going to school and going to work and whatever they have to do each day that they forget why they wake up each morning. God didn't put the breath in our body just for us to waste it on foolish things that will eventually fade away. Nothing here on earth will go with us when we die. So why are we more focused on the things that are tangible than the things that really matter? Yes, we have to work in order to eat. The Bible teaches that.… Continue

Evil cannot exist when the Holy Ghost is present. Praise Him when you're feeling down. Sickness bothering you? Depression? Grief? Weakness, sin, everything seem to be going wrong? Praise is the prayer that changes all things, Sickness , Pain , Sin, ETC. CANNOT BE PRESENT WHEN HE IS. My Pastor's Wife, Sister Karen Channell always says "Bless yourself!" Let us come into His house with thanksgiving and with praise. I found that when I am praising the Lord I feel better. We can bless ourselves. We… Continue

Compromise isn't part of Christianity and never will be. If you are a Christian you have to stand up for what you believe in, the man you believe in, Jesus. Or it just won't work. You can't compromise with Satan, the devil. That is courting disaster! Jesus didn't compromise when He went up the mountain on His 40 Day Fast. And when the Tempter came to Him, he said, "if thou be the Son Of God, command that these stones be made bread." But He answered and said, "It is written, man shall not live… Continue

Remember Your Elders
It is really important to remember our Elder brothers and sisters in Christ who are not able to even get to church anymore, And the widows, and widoers, The injured, and the sick! They MUST be remembered!
It is inhumanly cruel and nowhere Christ-like to forget them! After all, Didn't they, at least some of them, spend all, or most of thier Life for God? And who are WE to just allow them to pass out of the awareness of the Church family? In… Continue

TRUE CHRISTIANITY-- Part 1
A 14 year old teen age girl once asked me when she first met me if I was a true Christian. I thot that was an amazing question for her to ask. You see I was writing a book on the subject of what it means to be a true Christian, but she didn't know that, and I told her that I'm trying very hard to be just that. A true Christian.
What does it mean tho, to be a true Christian? To have a Christ like spirit? Oh it means so much more… Continue

Like a Lighthouse the light of Truth,
Love, and saving grace of Jesus Christ
shines upon the world to give us hope
that there is an answer,
Whatever the problems that we face,
And the hope of Eternal Life!

We cannot truly know the Lord, and He cannot know us unless we trust him. We must trust the Lord, trust that he knows
what he is doing, and that he, who loved us so much that he sent his only Son to die on a cross for our sins, so that we could
know forgiveness, and complete remission of those sins, (John 3:16.)
trust that he can, and will handle things. Trust that God Loves us, and will not fail us.
2 Samuel 22:31
As for God, his way… Continue

Whenever most people are asked, What is faith? They will usually return the answer, faith is belief in something or someone. Christians may add, the substance of things hoped for, not yet seen. I believe that what faith is goes beyond these very valid answers.That faith is knowing with with absolute certiny, without any doubt, of something being true. The faith of a child is like this. A child's faith is without doubt. The child knows. Simply knows and does… Continue

To every guy that's said, "Sex CAN wait"
To every guy that's said, "You're beautiful."
To every guy that was never too busy to drive across town to see her.

To every guy who has given her flowers just because thats how he rolls.
To every guy that said he would… Continue

THE LEAVES OF FALL
Here in Maine, we are used to the seasons. We can rest assured, after a brilliant blaze of reds and orange, the leaves all fall to the ground around the middle of October. We expect it and it pleasantly surprises us
what God does with His beautiful paint brush.
If we have any age on us at all, we have seen loved ones and friends pass on to their reward. Even the Bible says the years of man be will be around 75 years. Since Adam and… Continue

Ok where can I start? I grew up in the 50's and 60's. I remember Tent meetings and two 2 weeks-long revivals. I remember song services that could last for half an hour to an hour, easily. I remember services where the pastor would never get to preach sometimes, when the Glory of God would come down from Heaven like a Thunderstorm, Like a "Rushing Mighty Wind," and fill all the house!
I remember not getting home untill nearly 1:30 in the morning at times. I remember People "Amen"ing a lot… Continue

This is what I am... I am a Temple of The Living God! This is what I was born to be. The Lord inspired me with a song several years ago saying that very thing,
And I pray that I will always know the strength to remain with Him. I play guitar, and drums, and sing, And I've ben writing Gospel Music for many years.
Since durring a service night when when I couldn't find anything in the entire songbook that said what I was feeling. I started praying for help with what I felt,
And He… Continue
