Notes From Bob

Let’s Get Real!

Well, well, well… this past Christmas Eve got REAL at the Bell House. We aren’t just talking about a snowstorm.  Or the power being out.  We are talking on about a Full-on, honest to goodness crisis.  Can I be honest with you?  I don’t’ even like that word – crisis.  But that is what it […]

More Than Cliché’s

Jesus is the Reason for the Season, The Baby is Also the Savior, Born to Die That We Might Live.  I know, I know… you hear these phrases a lot. But believe me, they are more than clichés.  Stop and think a minute.  Do you really believe that the “word became flesh and made his […]

Are we Having Fun Yet?

Well it is the halftime of the old game we know as 2020.  Lives have changed, sadly friends have left, new skills have been discovered, teacher have suddenly become more appreciated and we have heard a plethora of new phrases that have already gone old.  Example 1: “In these unprecedented times” Example 2: “With all […]

Can You Feel It?

Is it me or do you feel a reawakening? I feel it.  Here in our corner of the world, the sunshine warms our heart, the kids have finished their social distancing school year, and believe it our not, some healing is taking place.  We are beginning to see a grand reopening of our economy.  Even […]

Here I Stand – Bob’s Blog

In my last blog, before the Covid 19 shutdown, I said, please don’t panic, pray, be careful, wash your hands, eat your spinach, and pray! Many will look at my last post here and cry out for my head!  I hear you, but I maintain that panic is never the answer.  I still believe II […]

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

The Bobby McFarrin song brought some strange ideas to my head recently. Our nation, our world, has been in a panic.  I’m hoping panic is not really a word that we use often as followers of Christ.  2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of […]

Life Abundantly – Bob’s Blog 1/17/2020

Don’t you just love the prospect of new life?  Jesus said in John 10:10, The thief comes to but steal, kill, and destroy.  But Jesus said that I come so that they may have life and live more abundantly.  The prospect of new life never gets old.  Recently the Bell Family celebrated the addition of […]

It’s No Accident

Recently, a man in Allen, TX was searching the internet to find inspiration during a time in his life when he was getting ready to say goodbye to his mother who was terminally ill.  By “accident,” this man found my blog written in the spring of this year entitled, “The King is on the Move.”  […]

Good Medicine – Bob Bell’s Blog (8/21/19)

Have you had your medicine today?  Proverbs 17:22 – “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”  I hope and pray that you take your medicine every day.  I’m not saying that we have to walk around in denial of the tragedy and heart ache that is around us.  […]

A Man Named Earl – Bob Bell Blog 7/10/19

A few weeks ago, I received the heartbreaking news that one of my friends in the ministry had been tragically killed. Claude Williams left behind a wife and 3 boys.  We was a kind, gentle soul who was a campus pastor as one of the branches at Celebration Church in Louisiana.  Claude was a tremendous husband […]
