MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ April 13, 2022

Last weekend I traveled to Fort Davis to officiate the wedding of Molly Spitler and Sam Dodge.  It was a good relaxing weekend that ended in a great way.  I got to baptize Molly, Sam and his mother, Elaine and gave them one of our cowboy Bibles.  We had a good many friends and family…

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ April 6, 2022

Red Steagall wrote a poem called, “The fence that Me and Shorty Build.”  It’s a good one. It’s about a young cowboy who hires on at a ranch and is put on the fence crew.  He hired on to ride horses and punch cows, not build fence.  One day he was digging post holes and when…

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ March 30, 2022

One of the crops we raised when I was growing up on our farm was wheat.  I never gave much thought that the primary use of wheat is to make bread.  Bread has always been a staple at meal time, although now,  most diets discourage eating a lot of bread.  You remember the story in the Bible…

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ March 23, 2022

Last week my message was about how hard it is to be still.  We live in a busy world and if we are not careful we lose the ability to slow down and  be still.   Psalms 46: 10 says , ” Be still and know that I am God.”   With that thought, when was the…

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ March 16, 2022

We live in a fast paced world.  Most times we have trouble slowing down and relaxing.  Something in us says the words “Be Still” shouldn’t be in our vocabulary.  We are in a hurry and it is hard to slow down. When we are young we want time to pass quickly.  We are in a…

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ March 9, 2022

Have you ever been on a treasure hunt, hoping to find something of value? Webster defines treasure as a precious possession. Jesus advised us to store up treasure in heaven and not to spend all of our time storing up earthly treasure. Jesus taught that we are to look for heavenly treasure that will last. Some of you…

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ March 2, 2022

I read a story about an old man who was a great man of God.  He was lying in bed near death.  He called for his grandson to come to his side.  He called the boy by name and said, ” I don’t know what kind of work I will be doing in Heaven ,…

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ February 23rd, 2022

The writer, Ernest Hemingway wrote, “Everybody is broken by life, but those who survive are stronger in the broken places.”   I’m not sure what he meant, but I believe we become stronger through trials when we trust God to get us through.  Paul writes a letter to the church in Corinth and says “we are like fragile…

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ February 16th, 2022

I cannot take credit for most of this message,  but it is a good one and worth sharing.  Paul wrote in Romans 15: 5, ” May God who gives patience and encouragement, help you to live in complete harmony with each other as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus.”   God made us all different. …

MIDWEEK MESSAGE ~ February 9th, 2022

In one of Pastor Rick Warren’s messages called Daily Hope he tells us in order to get a fresh start in life we should take a personal inventory of ourselves.  Do you know how hard it is to evaluate myself especially when I compare my life to the life of Jesus.  I decided to write down…
