I am not singing and preaching for a few weeks because I am having trouble with my lungs. They need time to heal. You can find more of the story HERE. I could probably talk my way through A Word For Wednesday, but today you get a treat. KJo is playing Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus.

A Word For Wednesday-The End Is Not Yet!

It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. This morning, I am posting A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube.

Do not get shook up! See that ye be not troubled. All these things much come to pass, but the end is not yet.

God is not finished working this out! The end is not yet!

Matthew 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

I hope you enjoy A Word For Wednesday!

The Gift of Peace

Hey Friends, 


This is Odie reporting in from the road. We had a great week with our friends In Bernice, Louisiana. Now the BoggsMobile is Texas bound.


Today I am pondering once again the wonderful gift of peace. We are all in need of peace in our lives. Our world is constantly searching for peace. 


What is peace? There is no tangible item that is peace. There are moments of brief peace when I block out life's troubles. Those are heavenly moments for me.

Where can I always find peace? God is my peace and solace! He is my resting place, shelter and comforter. I have been running to Him for lots of peace in recent days. 


Here are three things that have been excellent reminders to me lately. I wanted to share them with you too. 


1. Dad's January 11th episode of A Word For Wednesday greatly encouraged my soul. I recommend checking it out for yourself. 




2. A friend sent me a portion of scripture last week. It was just what I needed for that moment. A reminder that God cradles us in His arms. There is no better place to be!


"The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms:"

‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭33‬:‭27‬ ‭KJV


3. A song sung by The Sound has been my heart's anthem. It is titled Peace Is. I can not get away from the song's tagline.

 "When I feel like my world is in pieces

You show me what peace is"


Take a moment to read the full lyrics and listen to the song clip below.



Peace Is

Hunter Leath and Nathan Woodard


Verse 1

So many questions seem to go unanswered

So many doubts are racing through my mind

But even when I wrestle all these restless thoughts

I know you're near

And even when I wonder where you're leading me

You have shown your love time and time again

Though this battle that I'm fighting is already won

I still fight the fear

But I hear you softly whisper "it's okay"

And I'm believing everything I hear you say


Chorus 

Cause peace is knowing

That you're with me in the valley

And you will never leave

Peace is having full assurance

There's no moment You will never see

When I feel like my world is in pieces

You show me what peace is


Verse 2

Maybe we aren't meant to have it all together

Maybe all these twists and turns shape our faith

We always want to stay up on the mountaintop

But even down here where my view is unclear


Chorus 

Peace is knowing that you're with me

In the valley and you will never leave

Peace is having full assurance

There's no moment  You will never see

When I feel like my world is in pieces

You show me what peace is


Bridge

Through all the struggle and the pain

I find there's still beauty in the rain


Peace is knowing that you're with me

In the valley you will never leave

Peace is having full assurance

There's no moment You will never see

When I feel like my world is in pieces

You show me what peace is


I am thankful for God's peace, which reaches far beyond all of my understanding! I hope these reminders have encouraged you as well. Thanks for stopping by to visit with me.

A Word For Wednesday, The Strong Bearing The Infirmities of The Weak

It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. This morning, I am posting A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube.

Romans 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

Are there any around us that need help? We are sometimes blessed with strength. We do not have that strength for our own good, but for the good of others. We ought to bear the infirmities of the weak. We ought to help others with the strength we have been given.

Can we find someone to help?

Thank you for stopping in.

A Word For Wednesday, Remembering What I Have Already Heard

It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. This morning, I am posting A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube.

Hebrews 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

I need a review of the things I have heard of God. I have heard His Word. I have believed His Word, But, I am prone to let those things slip in times of difficulty.

God, when my heart is overwhelmed, help me to remember what I have already heard!

Thank you for dropping by.

A Word For Wednesday, Are Good Intentions Good Enough?

For some reason, yesterday's post did not publish correctly. We heard from some that read Mile Markers in the morning, that the post was not up. Here it is, just in case you missed it.

You do not want to miss tomorrow's post. It will be a special post celebrating twenty continuous years of evangelism for us!😊

It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. This morning, I am posting A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube.

Last week I talked about Setting Your Course. What about setting goals. Are goals, promises and resolutions enough. Are Good Intentions Good Enough?

Have you set your course? It is never too late to change our course. I am determined to be a better man at the end of 2023. I have set my course with Christ as my guide.

Thank you for spending a few minutes with us today.

It is very important to set the right course. Where do you see yourself one year from now? Have you set your course? It has been said that if you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.

It is never too late to change our course. I am determined to be a better man at the end of 2023. I have set my course with Christ as my guide.

Thank you for tuning in today.

A Word For Wednesday, An Insignificant Christmas

It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. This morning, I am posting A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube.

The very first Christmas was an insignificant Christmas. A seemingly insignificant baby was born in an insignificant town to an insignificant couple. Most people had no idea how important they were.

Praise God for the baby born that day! Hallelujah!

Thank you for checking in.

Merry Christmas!!

Yesterday we mailed our Christmas card to everyone on our Newsletter list and to those that we have received Christmas cards from in the mail. Wow! That was a huge job. KJo and Odie worked on stuffing, stamping and labeling most of day Saturday.

You can see a PDF of the card here.

The PDF should be much clearer than this picture, but this will give you an idea.


I have been posting A Word For Wednesday the last two weeks with a Christmas message and I have one ready for tomorrow.



May God bless each of you this Christmas season. We appreciate each of you spending a few minutes with us every day.

A Word For Wednesday A Thoughtful Christmas

 Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting in for my Dad.  Sorry for the delayed post. Dad's blog did not post correctly today. I can not find it quickly in the draft form to post it for him.

It is time for A Word For Wednesday. This one is titled A Thoughtful Christmas.

Here are the words my Dad wrote in the video description. "In the Luke chapter 2 Christmas story, there is a verse that stands out to me. It is verse 19. The description of the action stops and we read this.

19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
It seems to me that the first Christmas was a thoughtful Christmas.
We could probably use a good dose of that this Christmas."


Thanks for reading.

A Word For Wednesday-The Providence of God and 50 Amps

It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. This morning, I am posting A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube.

I have mentioned in this space many other times, that I am very thankful my Dad taught me to work. He absolutely loves to work and he tried his best to instill that love for work in me. I did not love it then, but I am extremely thankful for it now. 

Dad was an electrician in factories most of his working life. He also wired houses and took care of a man's rent houses and did a lot of maintenance for two small factories near our home. He took me and my brother Steve with him on these and other side jobs from the time we were very small.

He also raised two 100 acre gardens (Not really 100 acres at all) and always had something going in the yard, the garden, the house or the barn. It seemed to me that we were always working.

I would rather have stayed in bed. I would rather have not been in those cold factories in the winter. I would rather not crawl in a narrow crawl space. I would have rather been fishing or swimming in the summer.

As I said, I did not love it then, but I am extremely thankful for it now. 

I can not tell you how many times I could not get something done as an adult. I could not do it. I did not have the knowledge. I did not have the strength. But I did it anyway, because Dad instilled that in me!

I am not only thankful that Dad taught me to work, but I am thankful he taught me about his work, electrical. I had no idea how much I was picking up through the years. 

I say that I got it through osmosis.😁

Dad was busy and working too fast to explain everything he was doing, but I watched him for years, handing him tools, screws, wire nuts, breakers, conduit and wire. The knowledge and technic oozed into me without me knowing it.

After KJo and I married I worked for an electrical contractor for three months before I was hired on at GM. I was not running jobs by any means, but I could do anything I was asked to do.

To my surprise, I knew the hot wire, the neutral wire and the ground wire. I could strip wire, use wire nuts, wire switches, receptacles and lights. I was blown away when I figured out how to wire a three way switch.

Most of my three months with that contractor were spent on a commercial job pulling wire through conduit, wiring up lights, receptacles and switches. I was pleasantly surprised that I could do it. The lead man showed me how they wanted it done and I did it.

A few years later I was helping a church on a remodel project and they needed a subpanel installed about 50' from the main panel. I asked my Dad a few code questions and then I did it. I could hardly believe that I wired up the whole panel and all the circuits running from the new panel.

In the years that followed, I wired whole houses, wired for remodeled houses and changed a lot of fuses boxes to breaker boxes all over Dayton. All of this was possible because my Dad took me to work and took me to work and took me to work when I really did not want to go at all.

Now, let me bring in the providence of God. 

Could God have been working in those cold factories and houses in the winter? Could God have been working in those hot jobs in the summer when I would have rather been swimming?

I absolutely believe God was working!

The knowledge and skills that I learned "by accident" when I was a child and teenager have proved to be absolutely invaluable in our last twenty years on the road.

I have no idea how in the world I would be an evangelist with a truck and trailer or bus IF I did not know what I know about electrical work. It would be mighty inconvenient, that is for sure!

I can not tell you how many times I have wired temporarily into panels all over this country so we could have 50 amps for a week of revival. In our previous RVs, having 50 amps was a luxury. With the BoggsMobile, having 50 amps is a necessity!

This is a 50 amp box with a pigtail that I have wired temporarily into churches for 20 years. I keep all the breakers I might need and wire in easy-peazy because of the providence of God!


I lost count years ago of how many 50 amp plugs I have permanently installed on the side of churches in America. The number is in the dozens. 


I have also made sure that hundreds of 50 amp plugs were correctly wired and averted a lot of trouble because of the knowledge God imparted to me through my Dad by osmosis!😍

There are a lot of things that I do not know about electrical work. I would be lost in most commercial work and all industrial work, but I am thanking God today for providentially using my Dad and all those jobs that I did not want to be on, to give me the basic knowledge to survive and even thrive.

Thank you, Dad! Thank you, God!

Thank you for joining us today. Can you look around your life and see things God providentially used to help you that you did not enjoy at the time?

Alcapulco Sweeet Alcapulco

Hey Friends,

This is Odie checking in today. Things are going well for me here at home.

Dad posted A Word For Yesterday. I recommend watching his thought provoking reminder! The blog and video went up a little later than scheduled. Please check it out if you missed it. Here is a link to the blog post. This link here will take you to the YouTube video.

Alcapulco Sweeet Alcapulco
Last week my cousin Lisa and I went out for a belated birthday dinner. I had not been to Alcapulco since I arrived home. We were excited to eat some delicious Mexican food.

Our friends at the restaurant treated me good. I felt like I was reuniting with family members. Several of them were quick to check on my Dad. They will be glad to see my parents when they get back.

Here are a few pictures from our outing! I always enjoy spending time with Lisa!

The Burrito Alcapulco

Lisa with her food.


I was ready to dig in and enjoy my food.


Acapulco's salsa is the star of the show!


I had to get a picture with our dear friend Jorge.


Yes, we did the customary outside picture.


They have the front of the restaurant decorated for fall.



It was so good to eat at Alcapulco again! Now I am craving more salsa! 

Thanks for visiting with me today. See you tomorrow.

Something To Fill The Void


All of mankind is running to and fro trying to fill the emptiness inside. They are searching and they do not even know what they are searching for.

A Word For Wednesday-The Folly of Focusing On Myself

It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. This morning, I am posting A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube. 


Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.


I have a true story for you today that illustrates the Folly of Focusing on Myself. It is ridiculous for my focus to be on me, my comfort, my wants and desires, when my assigned task is to deny myself, take up my cross and follow Christ!

Thank you for spending a few minutes with us today.
