H.O.P.E in the Struggle

Hello all, sorry I have not published anything for the last couple of weeks. There is a lot of change happening at the Mission lately. God is up to some big things at Cookeville Rescue Mission (CRM). However, God’s big happenings begin with small changes. These small changes take place one after another building up... Continue Reading →


What Nation Does God Need to Destroy from Our Lives?

…then after destroying seven nations in the land of Canaan, He gave their land to them as an inheritance. Acts 13:19 (HCSB) From the time of Israel’s captivity until they entered into the promised land, God was always trying to help them and make them stronger and better. Through this process, Israel always struggled with issues.... Continue Reading →

How Do We Worship?

And Jesus answered him, “It is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.” Luke 4:8 (HCSB) Have you ever stopped to think what the word worship really means? Most of us already have a picture of worship looks like. For most, that picture is going to “worship service” at church. This might include... Continue Reading →

The Choice is Yours

I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live.

It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (CSB) This week at church, we talked about reading our Bibles and meditating on it... Continue Reading →

We Need Training

No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11 (CSB)   I remember several years ago when I was working as an Emergency Medical Technician in East Tennessee, I had to attend a wilderness training weekend.... Continue Reading →

Sin Wants You

“…sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4:7 (CSB) It seems so easy for Satan to get the blame for our mistakes and for the bad things in our lives. People will use verses like John 10:10a, “The thief comes to kill, steal, and... Continue Reading →
