This time of year we are observing the trees for the return of life.

Here’s one that needs special attention.

Proverbs 3:18

She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who retain her.

We find in the Word of God a map to navigate this worldly jungle of uncertainty.

Give it some thought.



If ever there was a trapping season it’s now.

2 Corinthians 10:5

 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

Bring those thoughts into captivity and be obedient to Christ.

Our problem is not what is going on in the world around us but what is simmering in our mind.



We didn’t know it was coming, but God did.

We don’t know how long it will stay, but God does.

We don’t know the purpose behind it, but God does.

John 12:46

I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness

Many similar situations are found as we journey through the Word of God.

In light of this fact, we shouldn’t be in the dark when it relates to man’s struggles throughout the last 6,000 years.



Come on now, I know you are social distancing and probably self-quarantined but get off the couch and get dressed.

You know as Christians you are to put on a particular outfit every day and go out and face the fight.

Ephesians 6:10

 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

We pray for you as soldiers of the cross who are lifting Him up before the world.

Ephesians 6:18

praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints

Think about it.



People with a lot to worry about were listening to Jesus preach.  In that sermon was the cure for worry.

We have such limited control over life’s happenings but He is in complete control.

Matthew 6:25

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 

Read Matthew 6 and get a needed blessing.  Sure, you have time.


Make the Most of Your Time

What time is it? According to the divine record, time is not in our hands but His. There is never a lot of it so let us make the most of it. Our enemies are in time also but God can remove their teeth.

Psalm 31:15

My times are in Your hand;
Deliver me from the hand of my enemies,
And from those who persecute me.

In a British cemetery:
Pause my friend, as you walk by
As you are now, so once was I
As I am now so you will be
Prepare my friend, to follow me.
A visitor added,
To follow you is not my intent
Until I know which way you went!



A category of human beings contains the individuals with heartache and regret. In that group can be the very presence of the eternal God. The presence of the arms of love and understanding can be sensed.

Psalm 34:18

The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

No, life isn’t easy for most and extremely difficult for some. However in that cloud can be a silver lining.

Think about it.
