When We Need To Be Reminded Of The Personal Relationship With Our Heavenly Father

Sometimes when I just want familiarity I put aside the shiny new things and reach for the old torn worn and written upon.

I Believe; Help My Unbelief

Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” Mark 9:24 This verse keeps going through my mind lately. The short last part, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief.." Within two breaths I say I believe, but also I don't believe. It reminds me of James saying… Continue reading I Believe; Help My Unbelief

The Peace of the Ever-Present God

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Love Deeply

They help the needy and the poor. They know the laws… Continue reading Love Deeply

The Uncontainable God

The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man...Acts 17:24 Uncontainable. The attribute I find the most comforting is this, His omnipresence.

If I Walk Into The Bramble

"What if sometimes there be mist and fogs so thick I cannot see the path? It is enough that you hold my hand, and guide me in the darkness; for walking with you in the gloom is far sweeter and safer than walking alone in the sunlight!" -Susannah Spurgeon It is not that God hides… Continue reading If I Walk Into The Bramble

Clarity of Winter

"And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way. Walk in it." When you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21 Clarity seems to come when we get quiet.
