Sunrise or sunset?

Is it sunset or sunrise? Is the day beginning or ending? Is light coming or will it be darkness? What lies ahead? . This was a topic of discussion in C.S. Lewis’ book, The Great Divorce. Both in heaven and in hell it was twilight. In both places the residents anticipated the dawn, but it’s […]

The Big Lie

I watched the beginning of a video a few weeks ago that is haunting. I couldn’t watch it all. I didn’t want to see the end. It was the video of a young lady committing suicide. Someone had filmed it. The beginning of the video was heartbreaking as she just stood there…on the edge of […]

Romans 11:36 ~ For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen. This amazing verse comes at the end of a difficult treatise by Paul about his people, the Jews. The question unasked in Romans, that Paul now answers in chapters 9-11, is this- what about the Jews?

God Sees

Many of us, over the years, have memorized scripture. We memorize it because these are God’s words to us. They inspire us, help us, teach us. Paul wrote that all of scripture is inspired and so it’s all valuable to teach, to guide, to help us. Here’s a verse for you to memorize, Bunni, Azgad, […]

Hard Hearts And Stiff Necks

There are two things I see in scripture that cause us problems- hard hearts and stiff necks. Hard hearts describe people who are insensitive to God’s voice and untouched by his work in their lives. They simply don’t see or sense him, his voice, or his conviction. Stiff necks describe people who are, even knowing […]

My friend, James, wrote this wonderful post in June. I simply hadn’t read it until we talked about it this morning over coffee and so I had to go back and read his thoughts after our visit. These are great insights from a good friend and shine a bright light on our need for maturity. […]

God is involved in our world, in our lives. God is the great problem solver, course […]

On being a fool

I woke early this morning thinking about a passage of scripture that I thought I understood. As I thought about my own life and the verse I will share with you in a moment it suddenly struck me that the way I had viewed the verse was all wrong. I had missed the main point! […]
