Accepting Forgiveness

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. — Romans 8: 1–2 “The marks of a Christian should be freedom and joy.” Hud McWilliams preached these...

King At All Times

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Jesus was not the kind of king the Jews were expecting as they waited for the Messiah. They wanted an earthly king, but Jesus came to be King of our hearts. “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be...

God Is in the Detour

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Our lives have just taken a major detour, and I’m discovering how very great God is in ways I just couldn’t see from the mountaintop. In mid to late August, a bunch of things started unraveling in the life of a very close relative. We would have a role, and everything would turn...

When We Barely Can Pray

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Sometimes prayer barely has words. We hardly know what to say, or we don’t know at all; maybe we can’t even speak. We are at the end of ourselves, and there is no good solution. Our tears can be prayers, too. Jesus prayed a wordless prayer when, out of compassion for his friends...

Joyful, Fearless and Free

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Jesus came, lived and died for us. But that is not the end of the story. The grave is empty. He is risen! He is risen, indeed! It is finished. The work is done. So, what’s next? I once heard a preacher, Hud McWilliams, say that the marks of a Christian should be freedom and joy. It hit me...

What's Your Name

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

My mom died 12 years ago today. I really miss her. She’s the one who gave me my name. If she told the story once, she told it a couple hundred times. Because of an illness and treatment my father had had years before I was conceived, they didn’t know if I would survive to birth. So...

My Peace I Give To You

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” — John 14:27 When Jesus came to earth almost 2,000 years ago, no one could have imagined what would follow...

Hospital Staff

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

And Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” — Luke 5:31–32 “Jesus is the physician and the church is the hospital.” On Sunday, Casey Coats...

Run, Fight or Surrender

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. — Proverbs 3:5–6 I have serious anxiety credentials. From my childhood, well into adulthood, anxiety and fear manifested themselves in...

My List

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. — Romans 2:12 God. Family. Service. These are the three main priorities I prayerfully...
