All Things New!

Walk with Jesus

All Things New! Revelation 21:5 It's now upon us...a brand new year! It's very strange, in a mysterious kind of way, how we tend to gravitate to the newest, the latest, & the greatest in some form or fashion. Technology has that mysterious draw on me and that monster was fed to the full this year. First, our kids gave me a pen for Christmas that as your writing it se...

Christmas Eve 2013

Word of the Day

Driving to and from an errand today, the “car stereo” was playing an audio book by a favorite Bible teacher 1. His teaching is so deep and methodical; it is like a “gym-workout” for my brain. Last week, with this same audio book teaching I was lead to stop at the public library and get the book he was teaching. Yes it is another of those books about...

Consider Jesus

stayConnected

In a little over one week, West Valley will hear some testimonies and witness baptisms. These testimonies will be a witness to others of the power of God to save His people. Consider the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. After her encounter with Jesus, she leaves her waterpot and went into the city, apparently so excited about the “Christ.” John 4:29 &ld...

Pray

Dear God, Forgive me - Today I took my eyes off of you and worried about myself. Forgive me - Today I focused on myself and lost sight just for a moment of your wisdom and love for me. Forgive me - Today I took things into my own hands not believing that all things are for my good and Your glory. Forgive me - I've been missing the opportunity to hear Your voice through...

Seek Goodness!

Walk with Jesus

Proverbs 11:27 "He who seeks good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it" OK folks. This one is a short one but a difficult one for sure. In everything you do, are you seeking good? How often do I jump to the conclusion that someone is speaking ill of me, or acting out of malice or bad intentions towards me. Seek the one who's birth we will celebrate i...

Wouldn't It Be Great to Know the Future.....

Word of the Day

This morning I was reading the last few chapters of Daniel, specifically in Chapter 12 which my bible titles "The End Times". Chapter 12 - At that time, Michael, the great prince who protects your people will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the begining of nations until then. But at that time your people - everyone whose name is found...

Not Meant for Civilian Life

Armor of God

2 Timothy 2:44 No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier. Often at West Valley we will hear how we stink at communication, and then usually the we is clarified to say that men/husbands really stink at communicating. So in an effort to better communicate with my wife we starte...
