Is There a Shortage?

Teresa Poucher Have you been shopping lately?  ‘Reminds me of an approaching hurricane:  Good luck finding bread, chips, or batteries!     We have ships lined up to the dock, and stores are out of supplies. ‘Makes me think of the Israelites in the wilderness: There was no food on the shelves, water was scarce, and not anContinue reading “Is There a Shortage?”

Maybe I Need to Forget

Teresa Poucher    I get frustrated because I don’t remember where I left my keys or phone.  What was that password?  I don’t recall.  However, sometimes I remember things I should have forgotten.  It would benefit me to lose sight of a few things.   “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things whichContinue reading “Maybe I Need to Forget”

I Don’t Remember

Teresa Poucher I don’t remember where I put that purchase I need to return to the store.  I know I bought a card for a friend, but I can’t send it, because I can’t find it.  I am constantly using my watch to ping my phone.       Yes, I’m getting older.  I am sometimes distracted, often busy.  However, I’m getting my steps in because I’m walking in circles.     The BibleContinue reading “I Don’t Remember”

Give it All

Teresa Poucher Do you feel you’ve given your all, but you just aren’t getting the answers you need? What else do you have to offer? Not just your money, time, devotion, witnessing, cooking for people, giving others a lift to church, or just plain old hard work.     We are accustomed to doing good works.  Yet today, I feel like my works aren’tContinue reading “Give it All”

Boards and Broken Pieces

Teresa Poucher Poucher The 26th chapter of Acts speaks of Paul as a prisoner being tried before Festus and King Agrippa. Paul’s testimony was so compelling that King Agrippa told Paul he almost persuaded him to become a Christian. They were ready to free him, but Paul had appealed to Caesar so they sent himContinue reading “Boards and Broken Pieces”

Jesus Name

Teresa Poucher   I was curious how in the Old Testament,the people called God many things.   He has so many titles.  When Moses went to Pharaoh, he asked God, “Who do I say sent me?” God responded, “I AM THAT I AM.”  How in the world can the three letters, I AM, be so powerful?  He is self-sufficientand self-sustaining.  He is whatever you need in your life.       He gave usContinue reading “Jesus Name”

Wayward Souls

Teresa Poucher We all know a wayward soul, maybe a child, husband, or siblings. It is heartbreaking as well as discouraging.       Years ago, God spoke to my heart, “I’m going to give you a Lazarus miracle.”  The following week my pastor preached on the miracle of Lazarus.  I felt the confirmation and was super excited.       Well, it’s been years andContinue reading “Wayward Souls”

Things That are Lost

Teresa Poucher   I lost a set of keys once; it was a cool spring evening.  I found them the following fall in a coat pocket.  We don’t get lost or lose things on purpose; it happens when we are careless.     In Luke chapter 15, we read of the lost sheep, a lost coin, and a young man we know as “the prodigal son.”     Sheep are very vulnerable,Continue reading “Things That are Lost”
