Proverbs 29 – Are you foolish or wise?

by bonnernaz

Scripture &  Thought   Proverbs 29:11 – “Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back.”   Sometimes we feel justified in unloading both barrels and giving someone a piece of our mind, because we think that we’re in the right on the subject. So let’s just say, for the sake of a […]

Shout the Truth of the Miracle

by bonnernaz

Without a doubt, Easter has looked a little different these last two years than it has in years past. Like never before, we’re forced to strip down the manmade version of the holiday filled with fancy Sunday dresses, Easter egg hunts and big family gatherings to the bare essentials: the cross, an empty tomb and […]

Psalm 19 – God had it right all along

by bonnernaz

Scripture & Thought Psalm 19:8 – “The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living.”   What is the purpose of our existence? Some might say, “Well, it’s to be happy, of course.” In fact, even the Declaration of Independence lists […]

Luke 22 – Hope for flawed people

by bonnernaz

Scripture & Thought Luke 22:61 “And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to him, ‘Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.’” Simon Peter, definitely one of the most colorful individuals in the entire Bible, is perhaps my favorite. It’s […]

Luke 19 – Jesus wants a relationship with you

by bonnernaz

Scripture & Thought Luke 19:10 – “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Easter is not about eggs and wearing pastel colors. That’s all fine, but that isn’t what Easter is about. It’s about Jesus wanting a relationship with you! Jesus was born to die—and to […]

1 Samuel 7 – Ebenezer stones

by bonnernaz

Scripture & Thought 1 Samuel 7:12 “Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpah and Shen, and named it Ebenezer, saying, ‘Thus far the Lord has helped us.’” A line from Robert Robinson’s hymn, “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing,” says, “Here I raise my Ebenezer; hither by Thy help I’ve come, And I […]

Jesus Came Into Our Darkness to Give Us Light

by bonnernaz

In reading from the book of Isaiah, in the Bible, during this Advent time, I have some thoughts… The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows — light! Sunbursts of light! — Isaiah 9:2 Almost eight centuries before the birth of Jesus, the […]

Luke 18 – How close is God?

by bonnernaz

Scripture & Thought Luke 18:9-14 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself…But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy upon me, a […]

Tearing Down the Fences

by bonnernaz

Do you know that your life is meant to be used to be a shining Beacon of hope and love?  Each of us are created with a plan and purpose. The Lord has given us the charge to be light in the midst of darkness, to be hope in the midst of despair and to […]

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 […]
