I enjoy helping people. I am an encourager and I can see the good in others. I want people to understand what it means to be an authentic Christian and not just a religious "nut." I believe if Christians lived and loved others as Jesus lived and loved others, we would experience more of heaven on earth than hell on earth. These thoughts and writings are intended to encourage you to be who God originally designed you to be. They are also intended to challenge you and make you think. Also, I want you to know that I'm praying for you every day. Blessings, Murphy Blessings to you, Murphy

Hard Times ...


In these strained economic times, what weighs most heavily on your mind? What helps you best hang in there?

Isaiah 49: 15-16

"I will not forget you.
Behold I have inscribed you
on the palms of My hands."

Question: When you consider what the
Father's heart is like toward you,
what is your response to Him?

Easter Sunday

He is risen!!!!!

Fear of Man

Deuteronomy 1:17
"You shall not show partiality in judgment;
you shall hear the small and the great alike.
You shall not fear man, for the judgment is God's.
The case that is too hard for you,
you shall bring to me and I will hear it."

The Disciples


After Jesus gave up His spirit and they actually laid Him in the tomb, what do you think the disciples felt; what did they think about the Man they thought would overthrow the Roman contingent in Jerusalem?

What might you have felt, if you had been one of His disciples?
