Scripture Sunday: 1 Peter 5:8

"Stay alert!  Watch out for your great enemy, the devil.  He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour." - 1 Peter 5:8 This verse has come across my path a lot lately--even moreso in the last week or so.  So I felt it appropriate to share with you this week as a reminder that we are constantly under attack from Satan.  He is always seeking ways in which he can bring us down. Last week I asked how God is changing your heart to do what's right, and I think this goes along with that.  My mother-in-law…

Scripture Sunday: Psalm 51:12

"Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you." -Psalm 51:12 I love this verse, not just because the first part is part of a song, but because of the second half of the verse, "Make me willing to obey you."  Some of you might think that this is just allowing God to control us, but it's not.  I can tell you that, in my life, I pray often for God to make me want to do what's right.  It's not easy to do what's right, because sometimes sin looks so much more appealing and we…

I've had this sitting in my brain for a few months now, and I couldn't decide…

Scripture Sunday: Matthew 11:28

"Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." -Matthew 11:28 This wasn't the original scripture I had chosen for today.  But after seeing it, and after the computer lost my original picture, I figured I was just supposed to post this one. I have trouble with this one.  I just like to go go go and never rest, because when I rest I have time to think and mull over things and then just get depressed.  Or anxious.  So I prefer to be busy.  But I think what God…
