  1. Bible Verses....

    TURNING POINT with Dr. David Jeremiah Thursday, March 22 Begin With God But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matthew 6:33 There are many vocations focused on problem solving: consultants, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, practitioners, advisors, life-coaches, mentors, and more. Some may be biblically focused, but most use secular approaches to solving problems. Recommended Reading: Colossians 2:2-3 Because Christians live in the world, it is hard not to be influenced by how the world approaches life—which is generally, not from a biblical perspective. We have to constantly remember that no one knows as much about our life, our circumstances, and the solutions we need than God. While we may end up getting helpful advice from a “consultant” of some sort, our first counselor should be God: Lord, You know my situation and my need. I begin with You, asking for You to be involved in this with me. Give me Your wisdom; help me choose the right path; show me Your purposes; reveal to me any error on my part. If You want me to get help from others, please show me who to talk to. If you need wisdom or guidance today, begin with God. Start by asking Him to direct your thoughts and your steps. I live in the spirit of prayer…. And the answers are always coming. George Müller
  2. Good morning!!

    Hi, jb. WE HAD SNOW TODAY IN BALTIMORE COUNTY, MD!!!!!!!!! It has been beautiful, coating each branch on the trees and staying cold enough for it to not just all drip off right away. We kept reading about the southeastern states and the northeastern states getting good heapings of snow, and it was so frustrating that we didn't get the same. So FINALLY we got some before the season is over. Caught up certainly IS elusive. Lack of strength, cognitive issues, and apathy are very challenging to overcome. I find I get so excited when I get even one thing among many done these days. I am so glad to hear you have the support you do for all of the things needing to be taken care of in a farm life. It is hard to have to face not being able to do some of them now. We're with you in mind and spirit. And we understand that it is harder to keep up with correspondence. It's just always nice when you can, and we appreciate that. Take care. Linda
  3. Bible Verses....

    TURNING POINT with Dr. David Jeremiah--March 18 Peace, Be Still! Then [Jesus] arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Mark 4:39 In ancient literature, water often represents chaos. In Genesis 1:1, water covered the formless, empty, dark earth. God used a flood of waters to judge the earth in Noah’s day. In Exodus, the Red Sea threatened to destroy the escaping Hebrew slaves. And during the ministry of Jesus, storms on the Sea of Galilee threatened the well-being of His disciples. In each case, God brought order out of chaos; God was bigger and more powerful than the disorder. Recommended Reading: Psalm 89:8-9 There is a lesson there: Whenever chaos or danger appears imminent, our concern is not how big the problem seems but whether God is with us or not. The disciples learned this lesson when a storm threatened to take their lives on the Sea of Galilee. Jesus commanded the storm (the chaos) to be still and peace was restored (Mark 4:35-41). They learned that having Jesus with them was more important than the storm that was against them. If chaos is threatening your peace, let Jesus be your ark of safety in the storm. He can bring peace in any storm. Jesus Christ is no security against life’s storms, but He is perfect security in life’s storms. Wendell Loveless
  4. I have read on line that whatever it is that the planes are depositing in our skies, leading to what look like clouds, are suspected to have fibers as well as minuscule-sized aluminum particles that settle down all around us, including in our sources of water. Also, many cosmetics and meds contain microbeads. Google: cosmetics and meds containing microbeads, and you will find several sites that state that laws have been made regarding this.
  5. Lyme induced parkinsonism

    Hmmmm....... I've never heard of this before and am interested to hear more and where you heard about it and whether you may have it? I have a Lyme-related illness and asked my MDS one time if it could have contributed to my having Parkinson's (not Parkinsonism), and as best I can remember, he does not believe in the connection. I have wondered still about it, though, especially because there is so much about Lyme and its related conditions that are unknown. I've also read articles that would seem to imply that the two can possible be connected somehow, as well as people who seem to suffer from both conditions. Would love to hear more on this if you have the time! Thanks.
  6. Interesting article on Dystonia and Opioids

    This is tragic!

    Thanks for posting, NC.
  8. Just Interesting Things about This and That

    "We all have the drum major instinct. We all want to be important, to surpass others, to achieve distinction, to lead the parade. And the great issue of life is to harness the drum major instinct. It is a good instinct if you don't distort it and pervert it. Don't give it up. Keep feeling the need for being important. Keep feeling the need for being first. But I want you to be the first in love. I want you to be the first in moral excellence. I want you to be the first in generosity." (--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
  9. Bible Verses....

    Hi, DB. Thank you for your post, which clearly explains what we learn through the Bible of why it is necessary and how someone becomes a Christian. I had a hard time understanding the concept of Christ dying for us (even early on in Bible college). I think what made it clearest to me is in reference to #1, above. I heard that God is so holy that anything sinful cannot be in His presence. For some reason, that made it clear to me. It's interesting how some of the simplest things can be made clear by just a certain turn of phrase. I turned to Christ as a young girl through a Christian Bible Camp ministry here in Maryland. I've always been amazed when looking back and seeing all of the influences the Lord brought into my life to draw me to him. My little 7-year-old neighborhood friend and my dad were very early-on influences. A Christian friend of my aunt offered to send me to the camp. I remember in my older years at the camp asking why prayer is said to God and to Jesus, but I was perplexed when someone prayed to the Lord. I asked who the Lord is. A friend explained that that covers all three--God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. We laughed together at the way she explained it. Such simple things that I didn't know and more things I am still learning as I go along. It never gets boring. I remember how grateful I was to learn of the Lord's love for each and every one of us and how He longs for us to love Him. His desire is that everyone would come to Him. "No greater love hath a man than to lay down his life for a friend." Jesus said that, and He did just that, out of love for us. He took our sins upon Himself and suffered the punishment for them. For us. And all He asks is that we come to Him--into His loving arms--asking His forgiveness for our sins and committing to following Him. I'd love to hear from others about their coming to Christ. I find it so interesting as to what pulled/lead them to believing in and determining to follow Him.
  10. Good morning!!

    Happy b'day!! And yes, that information is very helpful. Thank you so much.

    Today's Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah Four Burning Questions—For What Will It Profit a Man… March 10, 2018 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Mark 8:36 Two brothers in Wichita, Kansas, won the lottery, netting $75,000. They celebrated by purchasing narcotics. While using a butane lighter with their drugs, the vapors reached the pilot light of their furnace, causing an explosion that destroyed their house. One of the brothers was rushed to the hospital, and the other to jail. In the literal flash of a moment, the luckiest moment of their lives became a nightmare. Recommended Reading: Mark 8:34-38 Millions of people feel they have won life’s lottery. They’ve accumulated homes and clothes and vehicles and sufficient financial reserves to pay their bills and ensure their futures. Some have become rich. But sooner or later, it will all disappear in the flash of a moment, for without Christ there’s no hope of eternal wealth or everlasting life. The Lord provides for the needs of His children, and He gives us the wisdom to be wise stewards over what He entrusts to us. Our long-term well-being is found exclusively in God’s mercy toward us in Christ Jesus, which is why in all things He must be preeminent. When I put God first, God takes care of me and energizes me to do what really needs to be done. David Jeremiah http://www.davidjeremiah.org/site/magazine/daily_devotional.aspx?display=devoprod&tid=email_edevo-wknd-0310&_zs=tPmw91&_zl=JuhL4
  12. Tremor when nervous?

    Amen. Only good thing about it is that it keeps us humble.

    In looking at information on line about Asea, it doesn't give a lot of clinical evidence, and it is not as well written as a professional article would be. There are many reviews that it did not do much at all for people, as well as many warnings about it being fake. It is also very expensive. If it were something real and as incredible as it sounds, I think it would be on a lot of scientists' radar. jgerhards, what has your experience been?
