PSALM 144:12 - Week of July 12th

By Judy Nichols   |  July 12, 2015

One of my favorite verses about children is Psalm 144:12. "Let our sons in their youth be like grown-up plants, and our daughters as corner pillars fashioned as for a palace." Grown-up plants are the ones bearing fruit. We planted a half-dozen blueberry bushes last year, and only one of them has any berries on it. Bearing fruit is something that only comes with maturity.

A Grandmother's Prayer - Week of July 5th

By Judy Nichols   |  July 5, 2015

I love it when I find a Scripture upon which I can base a prayer concern. If God has said He will do something, then I have much more confidence to ask Him to do it in the particular situation I’m praying about. It happened again recently.

On Marriage and Happiness - June 28th

Oddly enough, one of the first Scriptures that came to my mind when I was diagnosed with cancer twenty years ago was Job 2:10. "Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?" In a way, this verse set the stage for all that would transpire over the next nine months. It was as if God was calling me to a venue that would stretch my faith muscles to the limit.

Courtroom - June 14th

By Judy Nichols   |  June 14, 2015

I have only ever been in a courtroom as a participant in the legal proceeding once. We had an attorney to represent our interests and present our case before the judge. The whole thing was a rather scary experience, compounded by the fact that I was dealing with an illness that could have taken my life. We were grateful to have an advocate at a time when we both felt very overwhelmed by life’s challenges.
