Calming the Storm

By BRO. TERRY IVY,

“He maketh the storm a calm.” (Psalm 107:29) The past couple of weeks have given our community dangerous weather. Along with the limitations of the ‘shelter in place,’ we have had very dangerous tornadoes in our area.


Shut-in with God

By BRO. TERRY IVY,

“And the Lord shut him in.” (Genesis 7:16) The worldwide coronavirus pandemic has plunged our nation and communities into a time of travel limitation. We can go stir-crazy, or it could be a time of growing in our faith.



In the Darkness

By BRO. TERRY IVY,

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5) Darkness, in its purest sense, is not a property or a thing in itself. Instead, darkness is the absence of light. Shades of darkness are actually different shades of light.




Drop the Stick

By BRO. TERRY IVY,

“Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matt. 7:1) If you have ever been on the receiving end of someone’s untrue or unkind judgment, then you’ll understand why Jesus gave this command.


A Door of Hope

By BRO. TERRY IVY,

"I will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope." (Hosea 2:15) The Hebrew word for ‘Achor’ means 'trouble or suffering.' The Lord never sends us through a valley of affliction without providing hope. Hope to buoy us along the journey. Hope in the midst of great pain.
