Our Monthly Devotional Thought


A Healthy You

April 20, 2022

We are in a world of suffering, difficulty, trial, and sorrow... Today I want to tell you that the rougher and cloudier the road appears, the more power is available for us to see the light.

Not The End

March 9, 2022

Today our world is plagued with wars, natural disasters, and pandemics, to just name a few.  This is just the beginning of the accumulation of such horrors. Jesus

Incredible Love

February 10, 2022

WHAT IS LOVE?  The Merriam-Webster dictionary states – love is a strong or constant feeling!! Example – mother or fatherly love.

A New You

January 20, 2022

We all get excited over NEW things!! Right? A new baby arrives and we ooh and awe over the precious little bundle. Admiring the sweet angelic face, tiny perfect fingers, and toes; Giving all the endearments we can bestow upon this NEW God-given, amazing darling little person. 

Circle of Influence

November 1, 2021

If our Saviour Jesus Christ was with us physically today,  would  He be happy with the kind of life we are living?
