God with Us!

Sarah Guiza | Thu, December 18, 2014

As soon as Thanksgiving passes, the Christmas music floods the airwaves. One of my favorite Christmas songs is "O Come, O Come Emmanuel." Just the title alone speaks volumes. Emmanuel or "Immanuel" means "God with us." Look beyond the lights, tinsel, gifts and family gatherings and find a tiny baby born amongst the hay; Jesus, Emmanuel, God with us. He is right there with you even when you cannot feel him. When the absence of...

Happy Thanks-living!

Bob Warning | Tue, November 25, 2014

Charles Dickens said that we are somewhat mixed up here in America. He told an audience that instead of having one Thanksgiving Day each year, we should have 364. “Use that one day just for complaining and griping,” he said. “Use the other 364 days to thank God each day for the many blessings He has showered upon you.” As Christians, God commands us to be characterized by a life-style of thanks to...

The Weight of Approval

Sarah Guiza | Tue, September 16, 2014

Have you ever caught yourself being a people pleaser? At times, we may desperately want others to approve of us and affirm our worth. An evening spent watching any of the current performance driven television shows will display contestants being judged on their singing, dancing, cooking, weight name it! It's a heavy burden to make everyone approve of you. I am constantly reminding myself of that. God never intended for us to...

Will it Ever End?

Sarah Guiza | Tue, September 02, 2014

Will it ever end? The demands of life keep pouring keep pouring out. You're completely tapped out and then your toddler drops an entire gallon of milk on the floor. Deep breaths is what they say...count backwards from ten they say. Before being flooded with the urge to run away and hide in the closet, God whispers your name. He steadies your racing heart..."be still and know that I am...
