Reflections on Thanksgiving, 2021…

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 26, 2021

This Thanksgiving has been like no other in the history of my immediate family. We lost a grandson. The stark absence of his presence was as a heavy wet blanket put over a shivering body. Trying to find words of comfort in a time of great sorrow… Yet, the words I prayed the other day…

Spring Up Oh Well!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 24, 2021

It is a wonderful thing when you wake up and hear a Word in your spirit that is just like a liquid vitamin. This is how I felt this morning as I heard these words: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up…

A Tool in Our Arsenal!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 23, 2021

I was reminded today of one of the tools we as believers have in our arsenal. Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes we make as believers is to forget that we are in war against an enemy that is relentless. Just because things are quiet for a day or two, don’t think he has retreated.…

Peace…Living This Kind of Life!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 22, 2021

Peace is such a transient term for it means different things to different people. Today I see peace in Colossians 3:15: Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling questions that arise]. To this peace indeed you were called as…

He Sees Me…

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 20, 2021

Over the last couple of weeks I have been a woman of few words. There are times when life’s events take you to a place where there are no words adequate to express your feelings. I tried to go on a few times and write a post, but my heart was heavy with the loss…

Still Talking About That Priest!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 15, 2021

There are days when as much as I know about God’s love, that I have to draw deeper from the wells of salvation. Today is one of those days. Charles Spurgeon noted: “There beats a heart in heaven that always loves us, a tongue that always pleads for us, an arm that always fights for…

We Have Friends In High Places!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 11, 2021

There are times when we are grateful for salvation, and then there are times we are really grateful for our salvation. The benefits of our salvation are endless, but one that is on my mind today: For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize and understand our weaknesses and temptations, but One who has…

Even A Prophet Doesn’t Always Know!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 10, 2021

There are times all of us wish that we could see into the future. We are apprehensive about making decisions because we can’t be sure of what the outcome of those decisions will be. So we totter back and forth, never really doing what we want, sometimes not doing anything at all! Being familiar with…

Add a Little Hope!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 5, 2021

Of the big three that abide, hope is in the line-up. How comforting to know that our Father knew that this was important to us: Do not forget Your promise to Your servant; through it You have given me hope. Psalm 119:49(The Voice) As parents we understand that we can overdo the discipline sometime to…

If It’s God, It’s Life Giving!

By Dr. Alice Maria Crawford | November 5, 2021

There is one way to know when the Spirit of God is at work, is it producing life, or is it bringing about death: 6 He alone makes us adequate ministers who are focused on an entirely new covenant. Our ministry is not based on the letter of the law but through the power of the Spirit. The…
