Bad news…so what?!

It seems that every time I'm watching the news's BAD news.  If it's not the lack of jobs, the stock market or gas prices, it's hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes.  It is really kind of depressing.  Some say that the "end" is near.  I say, "maybe," but that doesn't change anything for me.  You see my home is in Heaven and I am just passing through on this earth.  Yes, there is an urgency to see people accept Jesus as their Savior and live the abundant life in Christ.  God offers it to us, so how can we rise above the circumstances and the BAD news we see on a daily basis? Hebrews 11:6 says, "And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him."  (NAS) Do you see the last part of the verse?  "He is a rewarder of those who seek Him."  God already promised us that if we seek him, we will find Him (Luke 11:10), and in addition to that He rewards you when you seek Him.  ...

Go ye therefore, and lose your attitude!

I am the youngest of three children, so I have had the unique opportunity to watch my older brothers go before me.  Sometimes this was great.  It seemed like my entire elementary career was spent as, "Greg Stopp's sister."   I had an uncanny resemblance to my oldest brother and he was the star athlete.  Then as I entered middle school and high school I was always identified as the "little sister."  I guess it wasn't so bad.  The upside of being the youngest is seeing the mistakes that my older brothers made and not making them myself.  There was one time when my brothers decided to put a firecracker in a hot dog, in the kitchen and then light it.  Oh, yes!  I quickly learned that no matter how hard you try to clean up the micro particles of the hot dog, you can't.  I also sat in the backseat of the car while my brother, Chris was learning to drive a stick shift.  I think I still have neck problems from him stalling out so many times.  I listened to my mom (over and over AND ...

Let the Basket go

In Exodus chapter one the bible tells of the oppression that the Hebrew people were under as Pharoah had made them slaves to the Egyptians. The more afflicted the Hebrews became, the more they grew in numbers, so the only thing Pharoah had left to do was to kill all Hebrew boys that were born. Then Moses is born and his mother, Jocabed had a big decision to make. As a mother I can relate to her doing everything in her power to keep her little boy safe, so she hid him. She did a great job until he was about three months old and she just couldn't "shoosh" his cries anymore. I can't imagine how Jocabed must have felt to know that she would either have Moses (more than likely) killed right in front of her or to come up with another plan. She decided to put Moses in a basket and set it in the Nile and hope and pray for the best. As it turns out Pharoah's daughter find the basket and Moses is saved, adopted by royalty and then given back to Jocabed to nurse him for the princess...gotta ...
