  • Fear not

    A few weeks ago we started a conversation on the common struggle we experience with fear. Here are five amazing truths to build courage in you for the daily battles of life.

    God Chose You. If you have received Christ as your Lord and Savior, you have been adopted. You are loved. You are chosen. You are wanted. You are not alone. Nothing can separate you from the adoptive love of your Heavenly Father. So don’t forget that….don’t fall back into fear. Fight fear.

  • Resurrection Realities

    There is no concept more universal than resurrection.  We find the idea of life continuing beyond the grave in all religions and cults.  The hunger for immortality is strong in the breast of every man.

    As Christians we mean something different from the concepts of afterlife taught by other religions.  We need to define resurrection especially Christ’s resurrection.  The Greek word means “up” or “again”.

  • Reed hospitalized

    Kentucky lawmakers put a hold on debating a revenue plan Monday afternoon as Representative Brandon Reed of Hodgenville, KY suffered a medical emergency and was taken by ambulance to the hospital with a “serious medical condition.”

    This happened while lawmakers were debating House Bill 366. The entire house stopped the debate, as Representative Chris Fugate, Republican from Chavies, KY, led the House in prayer for Representative Reed.

    Reed represents the 24th District, serving LaRue, Green, and Marion counties.

    Thought for the week: God has a purpose for your pain, a reason for your struggle and a reward for your faithfulness. Trust him and never give up. 

    Hope everyone has a safe spring break. Gas prices sure didn’t have to shoot up like they did. Flowers coming up like crazy, but still too cool to be out and clean flowerbeds out. Better days are ahead sooner or later. I can’t believe Easter has already come and gone. It was just another day for us, we stayed home and did nothing.
