Just a Word

by davidprill1

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,     and by the breath of his mouth all their host. He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap;     he puts the deeps in storehouses. Psalm 33:6-7   I’ve been considering Psalm 33 in my own devotional life the last couple of days.  It […]

Jesus’ Plan

by davidprill1

“You saw these things happen—you are witnesses. You must tell people to change their hearts and lives. If they do this, their sins will be forgiven. You must start at Jerusalem and preach these things in my name to all nations.  Listen! My Father has promised you something; I will send it to you. But […]

Lent. What is it?

by davidprill1

Lent. I could fill your brain with all kinds of information about the word.  Where it originates and how it came to be such a big deal in the church. But you don’t really need to know all of that (at least in my opinion).  If you are curious make google your friend. In short, […]

Lent: Ways to Practice

by davidprill1

Lent is church season meant prepare our hearts and minds for Easter morning.  Easter is the single greatest day ever and we want to take some time to prepare ourselves mentally and emotionally for that great day. Daily devotional. A devotion is intentional time set aside each day.  The time is meant to refocus our […]

Too Little

by davidprill1

First I read it in one devotional book.  From “Breakfast with Jesus” (By Greg Laurie). “Jesus asked his disciples for what they had, regardless of how little it seemed.  … Do you believe that Jesus can meet your needs, even when it seems impossible.” Those were good thoughts.  Helpful.  Encouraging.  Then – a couple of […]

Love Response

by davidprill1

My boys are funny and amazing.  It’s amazing how different they are.  And it’s amazing how funny some of their responses can be. For example: I might say (as I frequently do) “I love you” to each one and each one typically responds differently than the others. One typically responds like this: “I love you […]

A Prayer

by davidprill1

It’s really captivated my attention for the last two months.  I keep trying to think deeply about other things, keep wanting to teach on something else, keep trying to find new material but I can’t.  This prayer has captured my heart and my mind and I keep coming back to it.  The prayer is a […]

Simplify

by davidprill1

Our lives are often very complex. This sermon series is based off a book by Bill Hybels by the same title. It will consider practical areas of our life (calendar, finances, relationship, anxiety, and forgiveness) and how these areas might be simplified when brought under the guidance and grace of Jesus. There will be lots […]

More and More

by davidprill1

More and more. If we are really honest it’s what we really desire. Something deep within us craves more and more. More money. More time. More pizza. More quiet. More people in our church. More leisure. More family. More summer. I’d imagine that at least one or two of those apply to you. You can […]

Cart and Horse.

by davidprill1

The cart before the horse. You’ve heard the expression before.  Usually with a “Don’t”.  “Don’t” put the cart before the horse.  I was curious what I’d find if I went to google images.  I found some doozies.  Check these out! Aren’t those great!? They make me laugh.  So silly.  And yet – so true. Here’s […]
