Too Busy for Prayer?

posted by Cinda On March - 17 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

“I ALWAYS FORGET TO PRAY.” Huh? How does someone forget to pray? More than likely, it’s that they don’t want to pray (due to time and schedule pressures, feelings of inadequacy to pray in comparison to the way others pray, etc.) or they have little regard for the power of prayer, or never experienced its […]

Life is a Choice

Sarah is the kind of person you love to hate. She is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask her how she was doing, she would reply, “If I were any better, I would be twins!” She was a natural motivator. If an employee was having […]

Perks of Being Over 50

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you. 2. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first. 3. No one expects you to run – anywhere. 4. People call at 9 PM and ask, “Did I wake you?” 5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac. 6. Things you buy now […]

Through the Eyes of Longevity

It’s true, we are getting older! However, we seem to have wised up in our senior years and we now treat the New Year as just another day, which is why we will wake up on every January 1st – feeling fine. But keep in mind we were born prior to 1940, therefore we are survivors […]

#6 Around the World – Come Home

posted by Cinda On March - 10 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

ISRAEL IS… a land of which Jehovah said, “is Mine.” Lev. 25:23 After the flood, Noah and his three sons and their wives left the ark, along with every living thing that was with them. These eight people had a Divine mandate to “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.” (Genesis 9:1) They were […]

Father to the Fatherless

“Father wounds” are very painful and they can take a very long time to heal. We have been airing a program on our radio station that has naturally, because of upcoming Father’s Day, made father the focus. Rightfully so! One day a year we can honor the man (in some of our lives) that served […]

The Journey is the Destination!

“For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.” Psalm 48:14 I often find myself wishing I knew God’s plan for my life in its entirety. Wishing I could spread it out on my dining room table like a map and place my finger on it […]

Reality Regained

This morning, while sitting on my patio in northern Minnesota and greatly enjoying the sounds of a variety of fowled friends at the bird feeder, I was crying out before the LORD.  My intense prayer time was shrouded with the ominous times we find ourselves in; my lack of knowledge that loved ones have a […]

No Expiration Date

posted by Cinda On March - 3 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

Hebrews 13:5b “I will NEVER leave thee or forsake thee!” As I picked up a container of milk in the dairy department, my friend said, “Did you check the expiration date?” I did the same thing as I chose my brand of margarine. Then I picked up a couple items for which I had coupons. […]

Appearance is Everything

posted by Cinda On February - 28 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

APPEARANCE IS EVERYTHING. Say what? OK, it isn’t everything, but it certainly is important. I can’t believe that someone who has been told all her life, “ It’s not what you see on the outside that matters, (i.e. It doesn’t matter if you are not pretty) it’s what’s on the inside that matters”. In other […]
