Now Is The Time
by Bill Williamson on July 30th, 2020
There may be times when it is clear that God created you “for such a time as this” – that you, and you alone are the right person, in the right place, at the right time to do what God’s wants to done. Could this pandemic be such a time? During this time of uncertainty, maybe it’s time to ask God, “What would you have me do at this time?” Could God be preparing you to do something you have imagined doing, dreamed about doing, but have never seriously considered taking the steps to make it happen?  Read More
Taste & See
by Bill Williamson on July 22nd, 2020
I have been enjoying our youngest daughter living with us these days. She has become the “home chef” - introducing us to some fine cuisine (most of it is vegan, but it is really delicious). It got me thinking about Psalm 34.8: “Taste and See that the Lord is good!” To “taste” something means we have to eat something. What is it God wants us to eat and taste? I looked up the word “eat” in the Bible, and was surprised at how many verses talk about this very common, ordinary act. But, I sense something more profoundly Spiritual than just eating a meal. After all, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on ever word that comes from the mouth of God.” To taste the goodness of God is about digesting the presence of God by savoring the Word of God...  Read More
Set Your Mind
by Bill Williamson on July 15th, 2020
I am a fan of the Winnie the Pooh stories. You have Eeyore - Ever the pessimist. Then, there’s Tigger - Always bouncing around on his tail, perhaps having his head in the clouds a little too much. There are other characters, but those two seem to be the extremes. I see Winnie the Pooh right in the middle of Eeyore and Tigger. Pooh seems to be a realist. He seems to just go with the flow, And, no matter what happens, he is always able to find his “happy place..."  Read More
God Is Love

“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” I John 4.10 As the saying goes: You are not loved because you are valuable;you are valuable because you are loved. God does not love you because you are valuable.God does not love you because you finally chose to love Him.God does not love you because you are smart, perfect, funny, go...  Read More
Just Ask
by Bill Williamson on July 2nd, 2020
When my girls were little, we would go to fairs, amusements parks, Disneyland and the like. Without a doubt they would see something (a balloon, glow bracelets, cotton candy), and they would ask us to buy it. Most of the times, knowing how soft I am, I would buy it for them. Sometimes I would not purchase what they wanted. Cotton candy for breakfast is not a good idea. However, I am SO glad they asked. It would break my heart if they felt they could not ask me for anything.  Read More
How Long?
by Bill Williamson on June 24th, 2020
As I write this blog I have been made aware that it has been 100 days since our state was given the instructions to “stay home”. 100 DAYS!!! I’m sure the question on all of our minds is “How Long?” How long Lord? How long will this pandemic last? How long until a vaccine is found? How long until the country, city, and church reopens?   Read More
