A different type of resume

Posted By: Dieuner Joseph | Friday, March 29, 2019


Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea. 2 Corinthians 11:25 NIV Some people have very impressive resumes.

Do not become weary!

Posted By: Dieuner Joseph | Thursday, March 28, 2019


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 Some people are gifted with the ability to sow seeds so others can reap the harvest. Those seeds sowers don’t always live to reap their own harvest. Some of the most notable seed sowers are Moses, Abraham, Jesus, and Martin Luther King Jr. These individuals made pers ..

For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Romans 11:36 NIV During my devotion time this morning, the Lord told me that he has a rhythm; and that the world is created according to his rhythm. I did not know what he meant.

Perfect Bracket

But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Revelation 2:4 So far I have a perfect bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament. That is the first time this has happened to me. My son’s bracket is already busted up, and I’ve been bragging about my perfect bracket.

In the Nick of Time

Posted By: Dieuner Joseph | Thursday, March 21, 2019


You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6 It’s not so obvious to know what the nick of time is, but we do know what it means to be in it, that is, arriving at the last propitious moment. Before the 16th century there was another expression used to convey that meaning - 'pudding time.' This relates to the fact that pudding was ..

Love your Neighbor!

Posted By: Dieuner Joseph | Friday, March 15, 2019


If someone says, "I love God," but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don't love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? 1 John 4:20 The world woke up this morning to the news of yet another terrorist attack. This attack occurred in two Mosques in New Zealand. So far, 49 people have been killed, and 20 seriously injured. One of the t ..

Pity Party

Posted By: Dieuner Joseph | Thursday, March 14, 2019


Then he lay down under the bush and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” He looked around, and there by his head was some bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water.
