I Will Fear No Evil
by Peggy Brumfield on January 10th, 2021
It can be so easy to feel broken by all the unrest, sickness and death surrounding us right now. We are walking in unprecedented times and we need unprecedented solutions. Those can only come through the Hope of our salvation, Jesus. In the midst of it all, His victory is our victory. But to be victorious, we must not walk in fear, but in confidence knowing that He is with us. This week, join us a...
From Mercy To Love
by Peggy Brumfield on January 9th, 2021
It’s been quite a week! Coronavirus rising and the number of deaths climbing. We watched uncontrolled anger and frustration turn into an assault on our Capital. We witnessed government officials rise above the chaos to keep our republic moving smoothly. We continued to feel the impact of the virus on our finances, our minds, and our ability to live normally. And we are dealing with everyday trials...

We all have something we just love, something we can’t get enough of. It can be anything or anyone. Some of us can’t live without specific foods like ice cream or for me, potatoes. I hear you laughing. There was a time I couldn’t get enough of them anyway you cooked them.There’s a big difference, however, between loving something like potatoes and being addicted to something. Addiction is being co...
Ready for A Breakthrough
by Peggy Brumfield on January 2nd, 2021
It’s time to focus and block out all the negative voices that tell us what we can’t do. This is the year of “can do.” We’ve been whipsawed, spun around and put on a never ending roller coaster, but it’s time to shake it all off. We are no longer at the whim of every theory, opinion, or untruth. Our eyes are laser focused on Jesus, the lifter of our heads.Dig deep, my friends, and dust off your con...

We are not going into the new year in a “normal” way since we are still in the midst of ...
We Fall Down, But
by Peggy Brumfield on December 29th, 2020
We have come to the end of 2020. I can hear many of you saying that it couldn’t come too soon. What a year it has been. We didn’t know how many changes we would have to adapt to or how many things we would end up missing. My mom used to say, “You never miss your water until the well runs dry.” The well ran dry and we have a long list of things we won’t take for granted in the future. In many ways...

Kim, we love you and we surround you with our prayers.Could you use a little love right about now? I think we all could.

A Friend Loves At All Times
by Leonidas Batres Montoya on December 23rd, 2020
Each year at this time, we turn into caring, kind and giving people. For whatever reason, Christmas causes us to be more forgiving and we look for opportunities to share what we have with others. We suddenly overlook things that caused dissension during the year to give each other a pass. As a result, we are closest to what God wants us to be at Christmas.As you read Edgar Guest’s poem, “At Christ...
For the Love of Jesus
by Leonidas Batres Montoya on December 22nd, 2020
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain no...
What's On Your Christmas List
by Peggy Brumfield on December 10th, 2020
This is the time of year when Christmas lists are made, hints are dropped and commercials never seem to end. If you have kids or grandkids, they can’t wait to give you their lists of what they just can’t do without. But this is 2020 and for the first time, we will experience Christmas during a pandemic. How different the lists may be this year. What’s on your Christmas list?If you’re having troubl...
Are You Listening
by Peggy Brumfield on November 27th, 2020
“A voice came from the cloud, saying, ‘This is My Son, whom I have chosen; listen to Him.’”Luke 9:35Have you ever wondered why God gave us two ears and one mouth? Perhaps He was trying to tell us something—listening is more important than talking. There is an art to listening. You actually have to choose to listen and that means paying attention. That means you can’t talk and listen at the same t...
