  • God is always watching you come and go

    As a child I was taught the scriptures. You could say my upbringing consisted of going to church. I lived a very sheltered life.  

    I’m so grateful to my parents that God was the main priority in our home. That is why I believe parents should teach their children in the ways of the Lord and do their best to live what they teach.

    I always knew God was watching everything I did, and hearing every word I spoke.  I was born again at the age of 11.

    “God carefully watches the goings on of all mankind.” (Job 34:21).

  • Find hope amid hopelessness

    Several years ago a U.S. Navy submarine sank off the coast of Massachusetts in a terrible storm. Rescue teams tried to rescue the trapped crew. Communication with the trapped crew was with dots and dashes of the Morse Code. After much effort to rescue the men inside the vessel the last message received from them was, “Is there any hope?”

  • Wesley Meadows strives toward excellence

    Wesley Meadows United Methodist Church started the fall season off Saturday with a bang. It was time for the annual Lord’s Project Auction. Before that was a barbecue dinner. Even though it was a slight chill in the air, members brought items for the auction as well as food for the dinner.

    The auction has been held every fall since 1978 under the leadership of Bro. Tom Morrison. Church members donate homemade items, plants, hay, wood and others for the auction. The first auction brought in $3,000.

    Locust Grove offers “The Core”

  • Leave a lasting legacy for your family

    My 6-year-old granddaughter, Layla, had seriously taken in the entire funeral service for her beloved Papa; the songs sung and the words spoken had touched her tender little heart. One minister told those present that Tom would want all of us to continue telling others about Jesus. The day after the funeral, Layla was playing at my house with a little boy who had been in church very little.  On his way home, he asked his stepmom, “Did God really make me?”

    She answered, “Why, yes he did! What makes you ask that?”

  • God says we’ll be tempted, tried and tested

    Do you know the difference in being tested and temptation?

    We know in school students are tested regularly on how they are retaining and understanding the material they are learning. Customers test-drive vehicles to see if they perform as advertised before buying. Our character and spiritual commitments are tested by the fires of hardship, persecution and suffering. The Bible distinguishes between temptation, which is used by Satan to lead into sin, and testing which is used by God to purify us and move us toward maturity and growth.

  • Bad things happen to good people

    Very few people go through life without something bad happening. Bad things happen. Why?

    Sometimes bad things happen because the devil is real, evil, a spiritual being, powerful, and out to deceive and destroy us. “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” (I Peter 5:8-9)

    A second thing to remember is that sometimes bad things happen because we live in an imperfect world where imperfect things happen. Cars break down, our health fails, money runs out, children go astray, loved ones die, and so it goes.
