Sharpen Your Saw | Firm Foundation Inspiration Minute for May 18, 2022

5/17/2022
Have you ever woke up feeling tired? Do you feel tired and tense over all? Ecclesiastes10:10 reads, "If the ax is dull, and one does not sharpen the edge, then he must use more strength; but wisdom brings success." Imagine if you needed to cut wood with an ax or a saw. A dull tool would make that task more difficult and tiring. We know what it is like to use a dull knife in the kitchen, which can be a little dangerous. There was a dialogue between two people that went like this: “How long...

Inspired by Mothers and Mother-Like-Ones

5/10/2022
Mothers are so inspiring! On Mother's Day in our service, we listened to reflections from mothers and adult children about their mothers. Here is a YouTube link to those talks. We also reflected on those whom we call in our community, “mother-like-ones.” Those are aunts, grandmothers, and mentors will fill the voids in a child's life who did not have the presence of their mother. My mother, Gaynell Hudson, passed away 20 years ago, at what we now consider the young age of 65. As I shared...

How to Stay Encouraged - Firm Foundation Inspiration Minute for May 4, 2022

5/3/2022
This is my 17th weekly Firm Foundation Inspiration Minute since January. I trust it has been an encouragement to you! I close every talk with the words "Be encouraged!" Those two words were spoken to me often by my late mother, Gaynell Hudson. As a matter fact, if you had any relationship with her you probably heard those same two words from her. Encouragement is a major theme in the Bible. The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:11, "Therefore encourage one another and build each other...

Jesus’ Resurrection Is An Everyday Blessing

4/19/2022
Every year following Easter I like to remind myself and others that Jesus' resurrection is still relevant. Holidays are wonderful. The only downside is we tend to leave the meaning of the holiday behind once the holiday is over. Easter or Resurrection Sunday is very different because what we celebrate is working for us every day. One of the Scriptures that brings this reality home is Ephesians 1:19, in which Paul wrote, "And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe,...

April 17, 2022 will be Easter Sunday, which I like to call Resurrection Sunday to place focus on Christ.

As with our other major Christ focused holiday, Christmas, we want to celebrate the core reason of the season, indeed every season, Jesus Christ. Part of the Easter Celebration includes what we call “Holy Week.” Tradition identifies each day of the week with special...

David wrote in Psalm 37:25, I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.

I use those words to describe our marriage because I'm convinced it was God who joined us and has kept us all these years.

Finding Your True Strength - Firm Foundation Minute for March 16, 2022

3/15/2022
Around the time of Jesus’ passion in the Garden of Gethsemane, He asked His disciples to pray for Him. He came over to where they were on three occasions and found them sleeping. They literally fell asleep on the job. If this was not part of god‘s plan it would have been tragic. Jesus' disciples were not as strong as they thought themselves to be. We are not as strong as we think we are, but that is only a problem if we are unwilling to accept that we need God to strengthen us day by...

Bryan Hudson, D.Min. I didn't sleep well last night, and I had to get up at 5:30am. It was a cold morning leaving the house and driving north on the highway before dawn. Praying and listening to a worship playlist while navigating the light early morning traffic made me fully awake. Rolling up the interstate, checking directions, looking at the ETA on my GPS, and thinking about my destination. I am not an early riser, especially since I am something of a night owl, working on projects often...
