Isaiah 7 – God keeps His promises

by Kerry Mueller

Scripture & Thought   Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” The birth of a child is not a time for asking questions – unless there are concerns about issues that are unknown […]

Are We Paying Attention to the Wrong Thing?

by Kerry Mueller

We are almost at Christmas! Just a few days away. I heard that old song again today; “Away In A Manger” by John Thomas McFarland. I especially like that last verse that says, “Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay close by me forever, and love me, I pray; bless all the […]

Proverbs 3 – A deeper level of trust

by Kerry Mueller

Scripture & Thought Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Last month the Discovery Channel broadcasted live the historic two-phase, tightrope walk of Nik Wallenda between two skyscrapers in downtown Chicago, […]

Are We Living Out the Vision of Isaiah?

by Kerry Mueller

Well, it’s that time again. I know many of you have wondered where my blogs have been. I have been recovering from my second total knee replacement (left side, this time) surgery. I feel like it is important for me to focus on my recovery and rehab so that I can be fully recovered and […]

Ephesians 4 – Forgiving others

by Kerry Mueller

Scripture & Thought Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”   “To err is human, to forgive, divine,” said Alexander Pope, a British poet. Most of us can identify with the humanity of the fellow who knelt to pray and said, “I’ve done […]

Don’t Duck Them, Embrace Them with God’s Strength

by Kerry Mueller

There isn’t a person alive on this earth who doesn’t have some sort of problem. Whether you are rich and famous or poor and struggling, you have a “thorn” in your side that you wish was not there.  What we must realize and understand about problems is that in many cases they serve a purpose […]

Proverbs 24 – Keep pushing forward

by Kerry Mueller

Scripture & Thought Proverbs 24:16 (NIV) “For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again…” Last Sunday, I referenced a sermon by Tony Campolo, “It’s Friday, But Sunday’s Comin’!” We all have “Fridays” that we would like to forget, but not the Friday before Easter! And it doesn’t need to stop there. Why? […]

What Are You Doing With Your Gifts?

by Kerry Mueller

Knowing that God is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent, which means He knows all things, at all times in all places, I can rest in the knowledge that He is in control of my life and everything else that may come my way. I have confidence that God has my best interests in mind at all […]

Do You Possess the One Thing That Really Matters?

by Kerry Mueller

It’s Holy Week! A time of reflection and remembering what our Savior went through and endured to gain our salvation. Humanity wasn’t able to reach God’s standard of righteousness because of our sinful nature, but God found a way for us. The Lord Jesus was that sacrifice that mankind needed because He was Holy and […]

Deuteronomy 4 – His treasured possession

by Kerry Mueller

Scripture & Thought Deuteronomy 14:2 “The Lord has chosen you to be his treasured possession.” This week I read in the four Gospels of the suffering of Christ surrounding Jesus’ crucifixion and wrote down the many ways He suffered shame. The soldiers bound Him and led him away. Some spit at Him, blindfolded Him and […]
