Friday Devotional - Finishing 2023 Well

We are quickly approaching 2024 and all that a new year brings. Resolutions, Biggest Loser for some here, new hopes and dreams for the next 12 months. It’s a good time to hit the reset button and I always look forward to it. For now, however, we can take a few moments to reflect back on 2023. Think about these questions… your responses can be big or small, silly or serious:

Wednesday Stories of Impact--Baby Jesus

This week's story of impact is a foundational one. It's the reminder of the birth of baby Jesus! Jesus was born to set us free and because of His birth we now have hope in eternity with our God in Heaven! The impact of Jesus's birth is the greatest impact story of all, and one in which I hope that you can find meaning in the days, weeks, and year to come! Amen

Tuesday Truth-Great Joy for All People!

10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

His name is JESUS

Friday Devotional – The Reason For the Season

At the 9/11 memorial a few years back, we saw a video of a person looking up at the sky in horror. I could read their lips as they said, “Oh my god.” We also see this happen in movies, TV, and life when we (people) find ourselves in precarious situations. Or when we see an accident about to occur. Even folks who’s movie character does not portray Christ in any way will cry out “Oh god!”

Thursday Thoughts – Working in Paradise

This week we have talked a lot about work. We have discussed how God designed us to work in the garden and commanded us to work in the 10 commandments. But one question I have often pondered is what will work look like in Paradise?

Tuesday Truth – Commanded to Work

Yesterday we discussed that God designed humanity to work, and that work is a blessing. We looked at several verses in Genesis that point to our calling to work. But did you know we are also commanded to work in the Ten Commandments?

Monday Mission – Created to Work

When your alarm clock went off this morning and you had to get ready for your day, what was your attitude? With Christmas being a week from today, it’s not uncommon for folks to feel “checked-out” from work right before the holidays. Maybe you are the opposite – anxious and stressed about all that needs to get done before the holidays. But as you prepared for work this morning, did you consider what a blessing it is to work?

Battles with worries

Friday Devotional – No Worries

One of the battles I’ve had from time to time in my life is worry. Not very often, but when I have, it grips me. In my job here at Pizza Ranch, I talk to many people who struggle through this very same thing. The most recent example in my own life is when our oldest daughter and her husband moved to Indonesia.
