Where He Leads Me...

Posted onDecember 13, 2017 | by: John Guerra | 0 comments

...Abraham had to leave his good life behind and follow God to the place He would show him. Are you willing to follow Jesus wherever He leads? Are you willing to let go of some things? Are you willing to repent of some things that are holding you down? When He is Lord of your life, when you have a relationship with Jesus, when He is more important than anything else in this world, you are willing to follow....Keep Reading

Real Love

Posted onDecember 6, 2017 | by: John Guerra | 0 comments

Too often, we get familiar with an someone and we begin to take them for granted. We’re all guilty of this to different degrees, but as we grow in our faith in Christ and commitment to Him, this should improve. We have to get away from the shallow, “be praying for you,” and “love you,” and move on to love in action and truth....Keep Reading

What We Do Know

I’m not that different than many that will read this. Terry and I have lost friends, grandparents, my parents, her father, a little brother, and our son, Jordan. It’s only by the grace of God that I’m somewhat sane and Terry and I are still married because of the stress involved. By His Grace, God has helped me so many times. And when I’ve not been what I need to be, His Grace has healed and strengthened my heart, my commitment, and my spirit. He’s just that awesome! And though I’ve experienced deep pain where I cried out until I was empty, I’ve been blessed beyond my ability to express. He has given me perspective and compassion through my painful losses to the point where I have grown and experienced real joy....Keep Reading

Thanks Giving

It’s hard to give thanks when pressure is being applied. It’s difficult to give thanks when our faith is being tested. Oh, it’s easy to give thanks when you’re looking back at what God has done, but giving thanks in and for all situations is a test of our faith. It’s not being thankful for difficult circumstances, but thankful for our Heavenly Father’s faithful presence and help in all of our circumstances....Keep Reading

Come Back To The Light

“The Lord is my light.” The Lord is our Hope in a world of darkness. When we’re overwhelmed by negativity and we feel isolated, unloved, and berated, He is our Light. He reminds us that He is present when He pushes back the darkness. When the world has rejected you, He reminds us of His love because He is our Light. When we seem to be in a hopeless situation, He reminds us that He is our Hope and His grace is sufficient for whatever challenge we face....Keep Reading

Jesus Christ is the Same

My heart is heavy for the members of the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs and their community this Monday morning. Since the moment I read about this tragedy, my thoughts and prayers have been focused on this congregation and its pastor. I cannot fathom the depth of this kind of loss. Then, I read my scripture for today, Hebrews 13:8."Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."...Keep Reading

Sunday, we had over 700 men, women, children, and a couple of alien life forms and other creatures at our Fall Festival. So, let me say “THANK YOU!!!” I remember last year when I was so excited about having 95 volunteers! That was awesome! I don’t know what you call the 133 volunteers we had Sunday night ...Keep Reading

What's On Your Mind?

It’s all about free will. We choose how we think, what we say, and how we treat others. Where is our mind? If it’s focused on selfish wants, selfish feelings, and selfish plans; we’re making a bad trade. We can choose to be happy. We can choose to move forward with a positive attitude or stomp our feet and throw a pity party. Where’s your mind? Your legacy is right behind you, being established by your steps, which are directed by your thoughts. What will that look like?...Keep Reading
