I Want It Now!
by Peggy Brumfield on June 23rd, 2021
Have you ever prayed for something and it just seemed to take too long? I got myself caught up in that feeling recently, even though I knew better. Happens to the best of us. Our human nature is very demanding and it’s patience wears thin. It wants what it wants when it wants it! We have to use temperance and self-control, and a good dose of the Holy Spirit, to keep our human “I want it now!” desi...
The Appointed Time
by Peggy Brumfield on April 2nd, 2021
We have appointed times in our lives for many life events. Those times are only known by God. He is the master of all time and His plan is according to His schedule. In Ecclesiastes we are told that there is a time for everything under the sun. For example, God had an appointed time for Jesus to fulfill HIs purpose by coming to earth. He has an appointed time for Him to return, and no one else kno...
Get Off This Mountain
by Peggy Brumfield on March 27th, 2021
Ready to put life’s troubles in their place? Tired of the weariness of the pandemic? Ready to send the enemy where he belongs—out of your life? Then get off this mountain! We’ve been sitting on this mountain long enough. It’s time to get up and take control and authority over our lives just the way Jesus told us to do. We are not defeated and we aren’t losers!The Lord even told that to the Israeli...
Man of His Word
by Peggy Brumfield on March 24th, 2021
There was a time in our history, when a man or woman’s word was bond. Words were important and not thrown around without integrity and truth. If he or she said it, you could believe it. They stood by their word. If a person broke his or her word or promise, it would cause others to lose faith and trust in whatever that person said going forward. Character was important.Many contracts and bonds wer...
It's Time to Spring Forward
by Leonidas Batres Montoya on March 17th, 2021
This past weekend, we sprung forward with time. Spring will officially be here later this month, too. Already, I’m getting that spring cleaning fever to start whisking away the winter dust. What is it about sunshine, warm air and even gentle rains, that just excite us to move; to throw open the windows, plant flowers and a garden; to trade in our heavy coats and boots for a light and carefree atti...
Seeing the Invisible
by Peggy Brumfield on March 11th, 2021
Do you remember the story of the Invisible Man? He could walk through a room and unless he had on a piece of clothing, you wouldn’t know he was there. He used his invisible ability to do good and solve mysteries. Unless you knew him, you found it highly impossible to believe anyone could be invisible. It’s hard to believe in what you can’t see.Many go through life demanding an explanation for thin...

This devotion is dedicated to my sister in Christ, Yvonne, who is a F.R.O.G. Thank you for bringing FROG to my attention. I now share it with all my friends here.When my friend told me she was a FROG, I chuckled, primarily because it’s a name of endearment and fun that is tossed around in our family. I immediately thought of the amphibian that lives in ponds and croaks. Her meaning, however, was f...

There’s a game I just loved to play called, “The Game of Life.” It’s a board game with little cars that you put stick people in and you go around the board of life. You may pick up a kid or two, a house and more, but the game is supposed to be fun as you go through the ups and downs of life. My favorite part was yelling, “Your move!” because I wanted to play the game fast and win.The game takes yo...
The Roundabout Way
by Peggy Brumfield on February 2nd, 2021
When we are ready to go somewhere, and especially if you use a GPS, you have a choice to go the most direct, fastest way or you can go the shortest or you can go round about. Most of us like the fastest way. We want to get where we want to go. Sometimes, however, it may be to our advantage to go the roundabout way, even if it does take longer. That requires patience.In our town, they have establis...
The God Who Sees Me
by Peggy Brumfield on January 20th, 2021
Sometimes we get impatient and take matters into our own hands. We want things done in our time frame, which is often quicker than what the Lord planned. That’s when we give the Lord a little help to get us where we want to go. Inevitably, this never really works and if anything, it prolongs His plan and complicates everything. Then we wonder where God is and why He doesn't step into the mess we’v...
A Leap of Faith
by Peggy Brumfield on January 18th, 2021
We’ve had a rough past year and as we’ve entered 2021, the enemy has not let up on his attack. As I thought about the global, national and personal crises we face, I was struck by the uncanny deceit of Satan. Picture him throwing everything he has at the world, at us, so fast that we can’t catch our breath. It’s like one wave after another. Maybe you feel that way too sometimes.Have you ever seen ...
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...
Hope Has A Name
by Peggy Brumfield on December 5th, 2020
Our first week of Advent is coming to a close. Our focus for this week has been Hope, and Hope has a name. That name is so powerful, that it can heal, save and give eternal life. That name can break chains and demolish walls. And we have full access to that name.As we close out this week, let’s remember why we are hopeful and in whom we put our trust and faith. His birth is the best promise ever f...
Keep The Faith
by Peggy Brumfield on November 18th, 2020
Faith is personal. Strong as a bear. Shaky sometimes. Easy in the good times. Hard to hold on to in challenging times. A light in the tunnel and the lifeboat in a storm. What is faith? Simply put, it is trust in God. It is “the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above th...
