Thoughts for the Day

Ask for the Moon

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The king said to me, “What is it you want?” Then I prayed to the God of heaven,  and I answered the king . . . Nehemiah 2:4-5a For months Nehemiah had been praying for this moment when the king would give him opportunity to speak--and then one day it happened. And all of a...

God at Work

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“Why does your face look so sad when you are not ill? This can be nothing but sadness of heart.” Nehemiah 2:2  We must believe that God is always at work, even when we see nothing happening. Nehemiah had been praying for months that the king would give him the opportunity to...

Intense Praying

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. Nehemiah 1:6  Nehemiah prayed with passion for his fellow countrymen. Here it says he prayed day and night. Chapter two will tell us...

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. Nehemiah 1:10 Why should God help the Israelites when it was their sin that got them in trouble in the first place? Nehemiah reminds God that he had redeemed the people when he saved them from...

God Cries

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Nehemiah 1:4   Nehemiah was living in exile. He had risen to a high level of serving the king as cupbearer (tasted the food/drink to make sure it had not been poisoned)...

Jesus is Bigger than this World

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written. John 21:25 I began reading the Gospel of John in November. As I read this final verse, I wonder what else Jesus did. John's...

Amazing Grace

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The third time he (Jesus) said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” John 21:7 Three times Simon Peter had denied knowing Jesus; three times Jesus asks him if he loves him. Jesus never mentions the night of his arrest (and Peter's failure), but asking the question three times...

The Elephant in the Room

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” John 21:15  It was the first time we see a...
