Welcome...

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm pastor of First Baptist Church in Dupo, IL.  You can visit the church website for information on the church: www.fbcdupo.org.  Here I hope to share some inspiration and perhaps a few tales from the winding road…this journey called life, where God can be seen in the moments of our day if we are looking for Him.  ~Roger~

Thought for the Day

Even when we don't sense God's presence, His loving care is all around us.

Words to live by...

Those who seek Him will praise the Lord.  Let your heart live forever!
Psalm 22:26

Stolen Thoughts

Sometimes, in the motion of the moment, our minds play tricks on us.  We think our loss is worse than it is.  We may feel like the songwriter David who, in the confusion of the moment, thought God had forgotten him. 

When David later recalled what he knew rather than what he feared, his sense of lose turned into a song of praise (Psalm 13:5-6).  His renewed joy foreshadowed what is now ours to recall: Nothing can rob us of what is most important if our life is "hidden with Christ in God" (Colossians 3:3).
