God's Roadmap

Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father God, who loved us and in his wonderful grace gave us eternal comfort and a beautiful hope that cannot fail, encourage your hearts and inspire you with strength to always do and speak what is good and beautiful in his eyes (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 TPT).

How to Trust God's Faithfulness Instead of Relying on Emotions


by Barbara Latta @barbaralatta

No rain for three years.

The woman looked out the door at the cloudless sky and back at the hard, dry ground. No one could remember the last time a stalk of wheat had grown out of the soil. A spear of hopelessness stabbed her soul. She wasn’t so concerned about herself, but she didn’t want to watch her child die of starvation. Her husband perished, now so did the food.  

How could she trust God’s faithfulness? Her emotions were as dry as the ground outside.

Please welcome guest blogger, Katherine Pasour. We are fellow members of Lighthouse Bible Studies and contributors to Refresh magazine. I know you will enjoy reading her insights on Jesus' story of the Good Samaritan and discovering the provision she received during a scary time. Her reflections show us how a Titus 2 woman responds and becomes an example to others.

You Can't Kill a Peep


by Barbara Latta

When I was a child, Easter was a big deal full of excitement. It was almost like Christmas. We got new clothes, a basket full of candy and toys, and enjoyed Easter egg hunts.

All the girls wore patent leather shoes, dresses full of stiff petticoats, and we carried spring purses. White-gloved hands clutched new Bibles that had been part of the basket bounty.

And what about those Peeps? They appear out of nowhere every year then disappear back into hiding until the next Easter season. I think merchants just store them in the back room from year to year and bring them out again in the spring. Mold won’t grow on them, they won’t melt, and I don’t even think bugs like them. You can’t kill a Peep!
