Throughout my life as a believer, I have observed some things that at first
were troubling, but since have turned to understanding. It's not that I
have accepted errant behavior, but rather, it's the behavior that always
seems to come out of a person as criticism. T...
It has been said that, "you have to expose who you are so that you can
determine what you need to be." I suppose that could be said of any one of
us, and I like that saying, especially as it concerns our faith. We must
learn the behavior that we normally live with, so...
There is an old song by Keith Green, that goes like this: "My eyes are dry,
my faith is old, my heart is hard, my prayers are cold. And I know how I
ought to be, alive to You and dead to me." Perhaps this song is stuck in my
heard today, because the Lord is reminding...
Before my father died, he asked me to do something that wasn't in his will.
I assured him that it would be done. When I went through the law with his
will, I was told that all I was responsible for were those things written
down. But I was responsible for so much mor...
Have you ever thought of what you would do if you saw an angel standing in
front of you? Would you know if it was an angel? What if there appeared
before you someone who was not there, but now was, seeming to have come from
out of thin air? Whenever anyone fro...
It was time to clear the dead lantana from our flower bed. I was thinking
how amazing it was that this stuff kept coming up year after year, even when
I cut it back to the ground every winter. It clearly had spread over the
entire bed, and now was just a bunch of dead...
Isaiah 9:6 tells us that the Messiah is called the "Prince of Peace." In
John 14, Jesus says, "Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do
not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or
fearful." v27 Yet, in Luke 12, Jesus is quoted a...
Isaiah 40:12-14 says: "Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand
or marked off the heavens with the span of his hands? Who has gathered the
dust of the earth in a measure or weighed the mountains in a balance and the
hills in the scales? Who has directed th...
Well, it's that time of year again, and boy, has it come quickly. But if
you were paying attention before Thanksgiving, artificial trees were already
being sold, along with all kind of other things. I hope you are ready this
year, and by that I don't mean have...
One of the most powerful verses in the Bible can be found in John 11:35. It
is: "Jesus wept." In it we see the heart of Jesus, but who is He weeping
for. Was it for the crowd, who were all crying? Was it for Mary, who Jesus
met, and she fell at His feet crying? W...
