HERE: Day 43

Matthew 27:15-31

She was different. She had adopted children who did not have her same color skin as her. She adopted a bunch of them. And she brought them to church. And they were rowdy, not well-behaved at all. Yet every week she came, and she did her best, but the children figgited and made such a […]

HERE: Day 42

Matthew 26:69-27:14

Denial: de·ni·al: “the action of declaring something to be untrue; the refusal of something requested or desired.” Has someone said something to you and then when you brought it back up, they denied that they ever said it? It has certainly happened to me. Boy, does that make me mad! People make promises and then don’t keep […]

HERE: Day 41

Matthew 26:47-68

BETRAY: “to deliver or expose to an enemy by treachery or disloyalty; to be unfaithful in guarding, maintaining, or fulfilling;to disappoint the hopes or expectations of; be disloyal to; to reveal or disclose in violation of confidence“ Have you ever been betrayed?

HERE: Day 40

Matthew 26:14-46

Today, I have a sweet friend who will lay her 6 year old daughter to rest, after a major car accident took her life. I can only imagine how her mother thinks often about the last time she brushed her hair, felt her touch, held her in her arms, heard her yell “Mama!“, ate together, […]

HERE: Day 38

Matthew 25:1-30

Peanut Butter and Jelly. Mustard and Ketchup. Chips and Dip. Tom and Jerry. Ken and Barbie. Horse and Buggy. Adam and Eve. Salt and Pepper. Mac and Cheese. Popcorn and Movies. Cookies and Milk (lots of food items here, I must be hungry!) Look at all the things that come in twos! There’s an old […]

HERE: Day 36

Matthew 24:1-28

Today’s Scripture is complex and prophetic, and I will not attempt to choose a side regarding all of its interpretations. Beth Moore did an incredible study on the Book of Daniel, called Daniel, and if you would like to further study these Scriptures, I would highly recommend it. Or, study for yourself Daniel 2, 7, […]

HERE: Day 35

Matthew 23:13-39

“Better is open rebuke than love that is concealed. Faithful are the wounds of a friend.” Proverbs 27:5 This is one of the most neglected verses in the Christian faith. I have been rebuked by a friend. It made me mad. It hurt my feelings. But on the other side, I grew so much because of […]

HERE: Day 34

Matthew 22:34-23:12

Have you ever disliked something about someone, only to find out that the reason you don’t like that characteristic is because you see it in yourself? As a mother I often found myself so frustrated with my children because they were so impatient and stubborn. Uh, hello! If you know me, those are the two […]
