When Tomorrow Comes

When Tomorrow Comes

“Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods...

I’ve Been Grounded

I’ve Been Grounded

I’m good, down here on the ground. I’m not a high-flying, tight-rope walking, edge-of-the-cliff standing type of girl. I have to look away from the TV even when cartoon characters get too close to the cliff or a commercial comes on and the people are in a Ferris wheel. I like it just fine down here on the ground. Perhaps, I’m really not meant to fly. It’s scary to put yourself out there. It’s hard to believe we can do something we’ve dreamed of doing. Sometimes we fall off the horse so many times, we’ve decided we just can’t bring ourselves to get back up on it. So what do we do when we just can't find the strength to try for those dreams once again?

90 Years Lived & Loved

90 Years Lived & Loved

Not every drop of rain will cause a flood Not every puff of wind a tornado make Sometimes you just have to stop Breathe in Jesus and trust in His name. ~Marcie Bridges ©5 August 2019 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20:7 This week my mother-in-law is 90 years old. Because her birthday is in the middle of the week, we took time yesterday to surprise her with a birthday party. Even at 90 years old she has a sharp mind and good wit. And she’s earned the right to speak her mind and tell us like it is. Here is Nell’s advice on living 90 years.

Why Won’t You Help Me, Lord?

Why Won’t You Help Me, Lord?

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 Sometimes Lord, I don’t take Your hand walking by myself, finding no place to land crying out for help over and over again but You promised Lord ... I don’t understand. Can I trust you Lord? Are you really there? Did I make a mistake giving you all I have? And you say to me, as gently as can be, “My child, you can always trust Me. I will always be here, I will always provide, I keep My promises, just stay by My side.” ~Marcie Bridges ©29 July 2019 How many times do we pound our fists crying out to God for help? We remind Him of His promise to meet our needs but then we don’t take Him up on what He gives us?

Restoring the Mind

Restoring the Mind

I realized something this past Friday as I sat with the other ladies in bible study: renewal of the mind does not happen overnight. We were talking about practicing righteousness. It’s not something we do once and then we are forever righteous. Paul says we must learn to practice right living. It needs to be worked on daily. I am often frustrated with myself because I see no evidence of a mind renewed or a heart transformed. I look at my outward self and think I’ll never be able to be the person I want to be or I even know God wants me to be. But where is that focus? That focus is on me. Not on Him. And while I might not see the changes, God is changing me. Slowly.

Loving Well in a Controversial World

Loving Well in a Controversial World

I’m tired. Tired of the arguing. Tired of the complaining. Tired of the fighting. I’m tired of men criticizing women, and women having to defend themselves against men. And while you may be expecting me to be talking about politics, sexual orientations, or sexual assault; I am not. I am talking about the body of Christ. If you haven’t been on Twitter lately, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. You may not realize how much fire women of faith have come up against by their fellow male counterparts. You may not know that Satan is having a field day over there. But you need to know. Why? Because we are all part of the body of Christ. We are all part of the church. If you are born again, saved by grace, you are the church of God to this world. And you need to know the fierce war we are in.

The Fiery Flames of Fear (& How to Quench Them)

The Fiery Flames of Fear (& How to Quench Them)

Isn’t it peculiar how something can suddenly come into our lives and we don’t feel like we are in God’s hands? The waves get rough, the ground starts to shake, winds blow hard against us, and we begin to quiver in our hearts and minds. The fiery flames of fear leap up in us and we just let them keep burning. This is when we have a choice to make. We can either let fear run our life, or we can reach out in faith to Jesus and ask Him to save us. How do we guard ourselves from letting fear set in? How do we reach out in faith like Peter did when he found himself sinking in the waves?

Star-Spangled Blood

Star-Spangled Blood

I come from long line of military men. My grandfather was in the Army, my father was in the Air Force. Our nephew is in the Marines. I grew up a proud American. I love the Star-Spangled Banner, all the patriotic songs, I love living here and I love the freedoms I have. God meant for us to be free. Free from sin and guilt. Free from condemnation. Free from the hardships and heartaches of this life. But unfortunately, when Eve made the decision to believe Satan’s lie over God’s truth, sin entered into the world, and we are no longer free but slaves (Genesis 3:1-24). How do we become free? Jesus says, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).

And The Thunder Rolls

And The Thunder Rolls

Natural disasters both scare me and put me in complete awe. The fear I felt that night has never left me. I’m fascinated by weather and the skies. I can close my eyes and see, hear, and feel that earthquake all over again. I’m more fascinated with their Creator. The God of this universe. He has a mighty voice. And when it thunders, creation thunders and echoes with Him. That’s what this psalm is all about. And we would do well to listen when he makes His presence known so mightily! His voice brought creation into existence. His voice needs no introduction. We hear it and respond.
