April 24 – Back in My Day….

April 24 – Back in My Day….

#114of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney #GetOffMyLawn Today’s lesson is about aging or getting older. A couple of weeks ago, I turned 41. This is the first birthday that I didn’t worry about it or feel older at all. I felt like me having a good time. Then I started to look around. Things I knew as a child are changing. Next year will be 20 years since my undergraduate graduate, 10 since my dad passed, I will be 42, 10 years since…

April 22 – When God isn’t enough

April 22 – When God isn’t enough

#112of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney For the past 111 days, I’ve written about the power of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I’ve challenged you to listen to his Word and live by it. I’ve given many examples of his involvement in my life. But what happens when God isn’t enough? IllI answer that, at least for me in a little bit. Let’s face it: Life is hard. Sometimes it downright sucks. There are the days when you just want to throw…

April 18 – A Cat Making a Sandwich

April 18 – A Cat Making a Sandwich

#108of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney #MakeMeASandwhich Today’s lesson is about a cat making a sandwich. You might be wondering, why is Sol talking about a cat making a sandwich? Can a cat make a sandwich? Does the cat take requests? How do I train my cat to make a sandwich? Sorry to burst your bubble, but I don’t have a cat who can make a sandwich. I don’t even have a cat. This metaphor came to me from a friend many years…

April 13 – Through God’s Eyes

April 13 – Through God’s Eyes

#103of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Today’s lesson is about perspective. More than that it is how you can look at one thing and see it from many different points of view. When my youngest was just 28 days old, she needed a lumbar puncture to check for meningitis and sepsis. I wanted to be in the procedure room with her. I took my seat and sat on the side of the doctors, rather than the nurses. I didn’t know that when I took…

March 28 – Dad

March 28 – Dad

#87of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Today’s lesson is one the father and remembrance. My dad passed nine years go today. It was snowy and cold.i remember that clearly as I told the hospice nurse we had to put him in a sweater to stay warm. (And yes, I realize the silliness of that now and it wasn’t lost on my siblings). I remember the look in his eyes when he came to after being unresponsive for nearly a day. He looked at…

February 13 – Witness Part 2

February 13 – Witness Part 2

Today we continue the discussion on being a witness. Talking about my faith is near and dear to my heart. There are so many things I don’t know. I can’t quote scripture off the top of my head. I don’t know the who, what, where, when of all the books of the bible. Sometimes I think Matthew, Mark, Luke and John ad related to John, Paul, George, and Ringo. (Ok, I’m teasing on that one). There is so much I…

February 10 – Is Jesus Real?

February 10 – Is Jesus Real?

Today’s lesson: Is Jesus Real? I know this is a provocative question. Some say “Yes”, without a second thought. Others say “no”, without a second thought. Still, others are confused. Even some say, “I just don’t know”. During the Super Bowl, I had a conversation about faith and Jesus. The person I was talking to sounded like they wanted to believe but their brain was getting in the way of their heart and faith. They said, “What is Jesus was…

January 10 – Letting God Calm You Down

January 10 – Letting God Calm You Down

For today’s scripture, I want to share a pop song – Kindly Calm Me Down by Meghan Trainor. I know, what does pop music have to do with scripture and God? While this song is probably about a boyfriend helping her when “the world is loud” or when you feel “so cold, alone, Could you be my blanket”?, I think about it as God. He is there to give us love. He is there to help us through all of…

January 6 – God Hasn’t Left or Foresaken Us

January 6 – God Hasn’t Left or Foresaken Us

Life is hard. When we have trial and tribulation we make think God has forsaken us, it at the very least forgotten us. He hasn’t. Sometimes we need to be lost and in the wilderness. When we are lost and all the distractions are stripped away, we can see his plan. This is a time of training and being prepared for his plan. ———- Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will…
