‘Give Thanks’

Another year.  Another Blog on Thanksgiving.  That wasn’t the plan this morning when I sat down for my time in God’s Word.  Yet, the below thoughts came out of God’s Word.  Little bit different style today but the hope is that God will speak through the words. Psalm 33:1-6:  Sing praises...Sing with joy...Praise the Lord... Continue Reading →

Sovereignty and Surgeries

"Stop striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth." Psalm 46:10 NASB2020 Shonuff, it has been a good minute since we have shared on this blog.  Since the last blog on community, we’ve had an interesting few months.  The Rolfe’s have had...

Alone Makes Easy Prey

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.I Peter 5:8-9 If you are running alone, you are easy pickings for the devil.    Your...

Why Community?!

You were made for it.  Pull your Bibles out and turn to Genesis.  Right there in the first chapter (vv26-27) is a reference to the Trinity.  God is three in One.  Throughout the Bible, we see God in three active forms:  the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  In the Trinity, we see Community.  And since God has always existed,...

Community Keeps us Sane

Before anyone jumps to any conclusions, “YES”…we are okay.  No, we aren’t doubting God or taking our eyes off Him.  His presence in this stormy season keeps us going.  The daily input of God’s Word and prayer keep us anchored in Him. But…why the catchy, outlandish title.  We believe that our family and friends in the States need to... Continue Reading →

Fix your eyes

Did you know that an endurance race is just a light, momentary affliction? All of my friends who run those races probably raised their eyebrows.  But, yesterday the Holy Spirit connected different parts of God’s Word to point us to that Truth.  As my friend Mark was encouraging our families from 2 Corinthians 4, other scriptures were...

A Letter to Believers

Roughly 2 weeks ago, I sent a letter to our church family at Community Bible Church of Savannah.  I felt the LORD impressing upon me to send words of encouragement and challenge to them.  As I reflect on the letter and our lives as a whole, I feel that this letter could go out to all of...

Poppy, Pablito, and Jesus

Today is April 7.  Today is Poppy & Pablito’s Birthday.  Happy Birthday!! Pablito, lil’ Paul, lights up every room with his electric eyes and playful smile.  His cute little mannerisms and gregarious personality make it difficult to disciple him when he is being a typical 4yr old.  In fact, I’m confident that he knows how to flash a smile...

Just Be

“What has God shown you during this time of ‘social-distancing’?” This question hung in the air as a group of believers pondered what the Holy Spirit had been showing them in God’s Word and in time of prayer.   As folks shared, it was a blessing to be reminded of different truth’s from God’s Word.  That’s the power...

Birds, Lilies, & Corona

Birds.  Have you noticed them of late?  Have you stopped long enough over the last few days to notice what they are doing? A few of us were hanging about our deck on Friday when the LORD caught my attention with some birds flying around.  Called an ‘audible’ and our family devo was on a different topic last...
