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...
Stay With Me
by Peggy Brumfield on January 8th, 2021
Kathy was tired. Working in the hospital long hours with so much sickness was beginning to take its toll. She had pulled two doubles in a row and she hadn’t talked to her kids or husband in three days. On top of that, her emotional tank was beginning to reach empty and she knew she was running on fumes. She had to work. Her husband lost his job due to the pandemic, and even though he found a job i...
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...
Your Kingdom Come!
by Peggy Brumfield on December 13th, 2020
We are entering the holiday season facing a pandemic out of control and political confusion, it’s easy to focus on our trials and lose sight of the One who can save us. Praise God, Jesus taught us how to pray. He taught us to approach the throne of God with these simple words, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” These words alone are a mighty prayer that can shake t...
"Amazing Peace" By Maya Angelou
by Peggy Brumfield on December 12th, 2020
As we close out this week of advent, enjoy this inspiring poem written especially for the White House Christmas Tree lighting in 2005. Maya’s words are so relevant for today.____________________________________________Thunder rumbles in the mountain passesAnd lightning rattles the eaves of our houses.Flood waters await us in our avenues.Snow falls upon snow, falls upon snow to avalancheOver unprot...

Praise and worship were the first actions taken when Jesus was born. Imagine how the Israelites felt. They had waited for hundreds of years. It took fourteen generations from Abraham to the birth of the Messiah. They waited for Immanuel, “God with us.”This tiny baby would save His people from sin, a heavy burden placed on the shoulders of a child. The night Jesus was born, the stars were shining s...
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...
Prince of Peace
by Peggy Brumfield on December 8th, 2020
When Jesus was born, the earth rejoiced! Hope had come to save us. He would be that bridge between the old covenant and the new covenant. He would be the link between the past and the present, between the present and the future. He would be the glue that would seal us and our relationship to the Lord. He would be the peace between God and sinners. The Prince of Peace!This is the season when we cel...

We are entering our second week of Advent and our focus is on Peace. You know, in order to have peace, you have to be still. Being still can be a challenge, though, for many of us. Our culture rewards busyness and multitasking. The spinning plate syndrome receives accolades: the more plates you can spin, the more successful you are. But Jesus actually taught something very different, be still, pea...

We have a powerful weapon for Jesus called a two-edged sword. It’s our mouths. With our mouths we can speak life. With our mouths we can spread the Gospel, and with our mouths we can pray for peace and for revival. Join us this week as we pray this Unite 714 prayer. Let it fill you with boldness and loosen your tongue to declare the goodness of the Lord.Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing ...
My World Needs You
by Peggy Brumfield on December 4th, 2020
The world Jesus was born into wasn’t too different from ours. There was a crisis and a meltdown, both politically and socially. There were revolutionary ideas and great divisions among the people. The Roman Empire ruled over the Jews at this time, and the Jews wanted a Messiah to come and bring order to the chaos.God didn’t send an army of angels to take over, nor did He send a full grown Jesus to...
Waterfalls of Joy
by Peggy Brumfield on November 24th, 2020
Waterfalls are so fascinating. Not only are they beautiful, but to hear the roar of the water as it rushes over the rocks is amazing. One of the most visited waterfalls in the world is Niagara Falls that sits between Canada and New York. If you’ve never been there, put it on your bucket list for the future. There are actually three together and they are just gorgeous. Every time I go there and wat...
