The world we live in is filled with anger, rage, violence and pain. We look for peace, long for peace, but fail to find it. We call for tolerance, but it eludes us. How can we find that one thing we all want, desire and need….peace? As I’ve watched the events in my own […]
Do you know how many times in God tells us to ‘fear not’, ‘do not fear’ or ‘do not be afraid’? I don’t either. It has been said that there are 365 ‘fear not’s in the Bible, one for everyday of the year. Others have searched and found only 100. Whatever, the number, it is […]
I am thrilled to know and experience the grace of God. It’s absolutely life changing once you know what God has done for us. One of the great tragedies of the church in our day is the fear so many have of grace. They fear what might happen if people really knew they were completely […]
Heb 4:1 God’s promise of entering his rest still stands, so we ought to tremble with fear that some of you might fail to experience it. 2 For this good news—that God has prepared this rest—has been announced to us just as it was to them. But it did them no good because they didn’t share the […]
I woke in the night last night with this verse my first thought, “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10. It’s a much quoted verse, but I think we miss so much that it’s trying to say. May I rewrite it in Mike’s paraphrase? “Hush, be quiet, stop, rest, don’t move….just pause […]
Waiting. It’s one of the hardest things we do. Waiting for answers, waiting for the phone to ring, waiting for someone to arrive. Waiting is loaded with expectations and anticipations. We are waiting for something, someone and things will change when the waiting is over. Waiting is a pause in our lives, as if the […]
We all search for something. We seek happiness, love, peace, companionship, friendship, security. We are born seekers. But it’s easy to get confused about what is really important to seek after. Our search for the things that satisfy the heart and meet our real needs is often unfulfilled. Our search for meaning and happiness often […]
I’m often amazed at the thought that even though the Lord knows me, that HE still chooses to love me. Me….. a little ole nobody with fearful tendencies and so far from child like faith, it’s scary.
He knows when I’m discouraged, when I feel alone, defeated and depressed.
The words of a commentary come to mind this morning as I start my day, “The best word to describe someone who has not trusted Christ as savior is ‘without.’” It’s part of a commentary on the book of Ephesians. As those words came to me early this morning I thought, what would be on […]
Made to worship We were made to worship. It’s part of us. It’s part of who we are. We look for someone to worship, some thing to worship. If we don’t worship a god of some kind we will worship things, ourselves, others. We were made to worship. Worship is what we give worth to…what’s […]
