Blog theme: A Lesson a Day Keeps the Devil at Bay

In talking with friends about how we know God is real, I heard many stories conjured up from years before. An event that happened when Jane was 14 that convinced her God cared or a situation that Jon got through 8 years ago that wouldn't have been possible without God's intervention. I know those are big, life-changing lessons, real faith-forming stones, but what about the daily lessons? The little ones that come more from a relationship with God than a coming-to-faith event. I know God talks to me daily, and they are profound mini-lessons on his character or advice for my life. Unfortunately, those pass right through my short-term memory if I don't write them down or verbally express them to another person.
    This blog is in response to this -- an acceptance of the challenge to write down the daily lessons that the Lord is teaching me. May it be a testimony to others of God's "mercies being new every morning" and his presence in and care for everyday life. And to my own benefit, may having my ears open to the lesson God has for me each day keep the devil at bay from trying to convince me that God doesn't care.

I encourage you to take up the challenge too!

See Luke 21:7-36; Mark 13:4-27; Matthew 24:3-31. Some of the things that are hard to hear are that parents will turn against children and children against parents, friends etc. will...

I'm Expecting! Are you?

Posted by Dawn Thiessen on Saturday, May 21, 2011, In : End Times 

I am expecting my third child anytime now. I am still working, but I’m motivated to make sure everything is in order before I leave so that if I go into labour and am not at school the next morning my replacement can step in and take over the class smoothly. Living in this state of expectation has made me be a more organized and responsible teacher.

                We are all expecting… Jesus to return. And, the best thing we can do is to live in a state of expectation. “And all who have...
