OH, THOSE ‘T’ WORDS!

Troubles, trials, testings, temptations; why are they here?  Why cannot life be sunshine and roses always?  Why must life be fraught with such difficult and desperate times?  Do we respond to trials with depression, dejection and despondency?

TICK…TICK…TICK…TICK

TIME, there are many phrases that include that word,’time’. A few of my favorite are ‘time flies’, ‘in the nick of time’, ‘time will tell’, ‘only a matter of time’.   Time has even been given an gender; ‘father time’. This year is seemingly moving at the speed of light. Why does time seem to move…

Proverbs 31:11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. The heart of her husband…. The heart belonging to her husband… Almost as if he has no choice in the matter…his heart has made the choice…his heart has chosen to trust her.  The Strongs Concordance says this of…

ARE YOU NOT WORTH MORE?

Proverbs 31:10  “Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies”.  Is it possible to become a virtuous woman?  Becoming a virtuous woman is certainly attainable. But perhaps the question should be…do I want to become a virtuous woman?   A virtuous or noble woman is rare, she is hard to find…
