  • Pay Attention: Put God's word into practice

      “Pay attention to what you’re doing.”

    You have more than likely heard this at some time in your life. It pays to give your attention to what you are doing. 

    Paying attention while driving is the concern of many people all the way to our lawmakers. Talking on a cell phone is one thing, but texting while driving can be criminal. I read that five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. 

  • National Day of Prayer observances set

  • COLUMN: Handling Difficulties

    Life is full of difficulties – Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and New York; the tornadoes in Missouri and Henryville, Ind.; or the Boston Marathon bombings this past week. When there are disasters – what do you do? Do we ask for help or try to go it on our own?

    Whether it is tragedies like those already mentioned, work problems, financial problems, raising kids, aging, health problems or things similar, we all need help as we travel the road of life. So when we find ourselves in difficult or desperate situations, what should we do?

  • COLUMN: We All Make Them

    Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

    We all face them every day. Some are small. Others are big. But they must be made.

    At times we struggle.

    Proverbs 3:5-6 gives us help in making wise decisions. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” 

    There are some things we can be certain of – God wants us to make wise decisions, to follow his guidance and for us to have clear directions.

  • COLUMN: Hold on to the good

    What are your priorities in life? They really don't change that much. If you had them yesterday, you probably haven't changed them today. We tend to get in a rut and stay there.

    Health and fitness, career, personal finances, family and relationships, home improvement - some of these would be priorities for many today. But for many their priorities have nothing to do with the Lord. Some think only of this life and the afterlife does not interest them.
