God is our strength

Seek the truth

He is there for you

Love as Jesus would love

"We give you thanks, O God, we give thanks,
and we invoke your name;
we declare your wondrous deeds."
Psalms 75:1-2

Thank God.
Thank him for all that he has done.
He is an awesome God.
He is most generous.
Ask for what you need.
He will bless you.

We have a water shortage in Omaha .
They are asking us to conserve water.
Please, pray for rain in our area.

Jesus said,
"The heavens and the earth will pass away
but my words will not pass."
Matthew 24:35

One day the rains will stop.
The clouds will be gone.
The wind will cease to blow.
The earth as we know it will be gone.
In the end the Lord will endure.
We will endure, if we believe and trust in him.
Hold on to the words of Jesus.
You will survive.

(June 28, 2002 5:48 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"There is nothing hidden that will not be exposed,
nothing concealed that will not be known and brought to light."
Luke 8:17

If you do what is right,
you don't have to worry about things
like what happened at WorldCom a few days ago.
(Pray for the 17,000 employees at that company
that will lose their jobs today.)
If you are honest and trustworthy, life is much simpler.
You can sleep at night.
You will have peace in your life.
God will bless your efforts.
Do what is right.

(June 27, 2002 6:19 AM CDT)

"To each person the manifestation of the Spirit
is given for the common good."
1 Corinthians 12:7

God has blessed you with certain talents.
Use these talents to help others.
You play a part in God's plan for salvation.
Don't hide.
Get out there and change the world.
Be a light to those who are lost.
Make a nice difference.
Do good.

(June 26, 2002 5:54 AM CDT)

"Let us not grow weary of doing good;
in due time we shall reap our harvest."

Don't give up.
The Lord is on your side.
He will bless your efforts.
One day the harvest will come.
He is right beside you all the way.
Hang in there.

"Keep your attention closely fixed on it,
as you would on a lamp shining in a dark place
until the first streaks of dawn appear
and the morning star rises in your hearts."
2 Peter 1:19

You have the message of life.
God has reached out to you.
You have seen the dawn approaching.
Jesus is the morning star.
Let the morning star rise in your heart.

Do you remember the poem
Trees by Joyce Kilmer ?
Only God can make a tree.

"You can depend on this to be true."
Titus 3:8

Jesus Christ is our hope.

We are blessed.
This you can depend on.

On June 14th an asteroid just barely missed the earth.
No one noticed until it had already passed by.

"The great crowd of Jews discovered Jesus was there and came out,
not only because of Jesus but also to see Lazarus,
whom he had raised from the dead."
John 12:9

It would be interesting to talk to Lazarus.
He had been dead for 4 days and was restored to life.
God is the author of life.
He gives life and takes it away.
Don't miss the Lord as he passes by.

(June 22, 2002 6:24 AM CDT)

"As the boy was being brought,
the spirit threw him into convulsions on the ground.
Jesus then rebuked the unclean spirit, cured the boy,
and restored him to his father.
And all who saw it marveled at the greatness of God."
Luke 9:42-43

Lord, you control all things.
You drive the evil spirits away.
You restore the sick to health.
You restore our souls.
We marvel at your greatness.
You are truly awesome.
We are amazed at your power.

(June 21, 2002 5:55 AM CDT)

I just love this song
In God We Trust by the Voices of Hope.
(Track number 15 on this link.
Update: I bought this CD later that day
at Nebraska Furniture Mart in Omaha for $12.88.)

"Sing joyfully to God our strength;
acclaim the God of Jacob.
Take up a melody, and sound the timbrel,
the pleasant harp and the lyre."
Psalms 81:1-3

Joy should be part of your life.
If God is there, there will be joy.
There is a song in your heart.
There is a sweet melody in your mind.

(June 20, 2002 5:55 AM CDT)

"Beloved, grow strong in your holy faith
through prayer in the Holy Spirit."
Jude 1:20

Come, Holy Spirit.
We need you.
Come and show us the truth.
We pray to you today.
Inspire us to be holy.
Be our comfort in these difficult times.
Guide us in the ways that lead to life.
You are our protection.
Come, Spirit of life.

(June 19, 2002 5:52 AM CDT)

"You are my letter, known and read by all men,
written on your hearts.
Clearly you are a letter of Christ which I have delivered,
a letter written not with ink
but by the Spirit of the living God,
not on tablets of stone
but on tablets of flesh in the heart."
2 Corinthians 3:2-3

What do people see when they see you?
What do they "read" about you?
Let your life be a letter that pleases God.
May it be a joyful letter.
It should be filled with hope.
They should see a loving heart.
It should be inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Be a beautiful well written letter.

(June 18, 2002 6:04 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"I am the light of the world."
John 9:5

Jesus gave sight to the blind.
He gives new insights.
He points out our sins of darkness.
He shows the way to live.
He leads us to heaven.
Let us follow the light of life.

(June 17, 2002 5:52 AM CDT)

"The night is far spent;
the day draws near.
Let us cast off deeds of darkness
and put on the armor of light."
Romans 13:12

Is it a new day in your life?
Do you see the dawn?
Jesus is that light in the morning.
He drives away the darkness (evil) in your life.
He is pure light (holiness).
Come to Jesus.
It will be a new day.

Happy Father's Day!
God bless all the fathers.

Yesterday I found this Christian Music station on the Internet.
Check out Today's Christian Music .
I added it to the left side of this page also.

"To the King of ages,
the immortal,
the invisible,
the only God,
be honor and glory forever and ever!

The College World Series has come to Omaha.
The opening game was yesterday.
And Nebraska lost, so we are disappointed.
At 6:05 PM last evening
a B-2 stealth bomber did a fly over the stadium west to east
and then turned south.
I saw it from I-29/I-80 a few miles east in Council Bluffs.
That is a cool sight.

"How shall we escape
if we ignore a salvation as great as ours?"
Hebrews 2:3

It is right there in front of you.
It is not stealth --- it is plain to see.
God offers you a tremendous gift.
It is more than you can ever ask for.
It exceeds your wildest dreams.
Take him up on his offer before it heads south.
You only have so much time.
Give your life to Jesus today.
Jesus, I give my life to you.
Lead me and teach me your ways.
You are what I have been searching for all my life.
Come and change me.
Forgive my sins.
Give me this new life that I dream of.

(June 14, 2002 6:08 AM CDT)

Pray for someone that is having surgery today.

"Our hope for you is firm
because we know that
just as you share in the sufferings,
so you will share in the consolation."
2 Corinthians 1:7

There are going to be good times and bad times.
The Lord will help you through them.
He will give you the strength you need.
Offer your sufferings to the Lord.
He is there when you are having surgery.

(June 13, 2002 5:58 AM CDT)

"Give my greetings to Priscilla and Aquila;
they were my fellow workers in the service of Christ Jesus
and even risked their lives for the sake of mine."
Romans 16:3-4

Work with others.
Be of service.
Maybe even risk your life
like those who tried to rescue the missionaries
a few days ago.
Serve with joy.
God will bless your efforts.

(June 12, 2002 5:59 AM CDT)

Someone moved the camera in Zermatt .
Now you can see the church better.

"God, who reads the hearts of men,
showed his approval by granting the Holy Spirit to them
just as he did to us."
Acts 15:8

God sees your heart.
He knows you inside and out.
He created you.
Is your heart filled with love or hate?
With the help of the Holy Spirit
you can make your heart beautiful.
Offer your heart to God.
Make it pleasing to him.

(June 11, 2002 5:59 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"The reason I was born,
the reason why I came into the world,
is to testify to the truth.
Anyone committed to the truth hears my voice."
John 18:37

Jesus is truth.
He came to proclaim this truth for all to hear.
Are you listening to what he says?
He is the way to eternal life.
Trust Jesus and his words.
Listen to him.

(June 10, 2002 5:55 AM CDT)

"Jesus hastened to reassure them:
'Get hold of yourselves!
It is I.
Do not be afraid!'"
Matthew 14:27

Jesus is there.
You may not recognize him, but he is with you.
He is very close.
Do not fear.
Be at peace.
He is near to you.

(June 9, 2002 6:18 AM CDT)

"Behind the second veil was the tabernacle called the holy of holies,
in which were the golden altar of incense and
the ark of the covenant entirely covered with gold.
In the ark were the golden jar containing the manna,
the rod of Aaron which had blossomed,
and the tables of the covenant."
Hebrews 9:3-4

"You shall make an ark of acacia wood,
two and a half cubits long,
one and a half cubits wide,
and one and a half cubits high."
Exodus 25:10

"The inside and outside were plated with gold,
and a molding of gold was put around it."
Exodus 37:2

"The next day, when Moses entered the tent,
Aaron's staff, representing the house of Levi,
had sprouted and put forth not only shoots,
but blossoms as well, and even bore ripe almonds!"
Numbers 17:8

"Moses then told Aaron,
'Take an urn and put an omer of manna in it.
Then place it before the Lord
in safekeeping for your descendants.'"
Exodus 16:33

Wouldn't that be something to see ---
to see the Ark of the Covenant?
And to see what was inside of it.
What a treasure to see and behold!
And yet, we have a greater treasure for us to find.
It is something worth far more.
It is something which fire can't destroy or robbers steal.
It is Jesus Christ.
He is the new covenant.
He is a treasure.
He is pure gold.
He is bread for your journey.
Search for him.
Find him.

(June 8, 2002 6:03 AM CDT)

"God is rich in mercy;
because of his great love for us
he brought us to life with Christ
when we were dead in sin.
By this favor you were saved.
Both with and in Christ Jesus he raised us up
and gave us a place in the heavens..."
Ephesians 2:4-6

The Lord loves you.
He has prepared a place for you.
He cares about you.
He wants you to be with him forever.
You were dead and Jesus has given you life.
Ask God for mercy.
Lord, forgive my sins.
I am sorry for what I have done.
Renew my life.
Help me to do what is right.
I want to live with you forever.
Be near me, Lord.

(June 7, 2002 5:54 AM CDT)

"From this time on,
many of his disciples broke away
and would not remain in his company any longer.
Jesus then said to the Twelve,
'Do you want to leave me too?'
Simon Peter answered him,
'Lord, to whom shall we go?
You have the words of eternal life.
We have come to believe;
we are convinced that you are God's holy one.'"
John 6:66-69

Some left Jesus.
They got up and went away.
They went their separate ways.
God gives us a free will.
You can choose him or not.
You decide.
It is your decision.
Do you want to follow Jesus or not?
There is only one way to heaven and eternal life.
If you follow Jesus, you will make it.
He has the words of life.
His words give life.
I pray that you will believe in Jesus.
I hope you will give your life to him.
Trust in Jesus.
I'm praying for you to make the right decision.
Don't go your separate way.
Follow Jesus.

Check your heart.

'Bad company corrupts good morals.'"

He will guide you through hardship.
You have a mission.
Fulfill the mission he has given to you.
