Imitating the Word

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

The Happenings Before the Journey

When the Lord saw Moses coming to take a closer look, God called to him from the middle of the bush, “Moses! Moses!” “Here I am!” Moses replied. Exodus 3:4

Authored In Christ

Publish His glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things He does. 1 Chronicles 16:24 When you write is it a gift gladly shared? Is it a gift you want to return? To the Lord? Thanking God, ultimately, for His publishing rights? This post is inspired by ‘Planting Potatoes’. I, like so […]

Am I Really Ready to be Interrogated?

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139:23-24 Think of those old cop shows where there’s the lead detective, the suspect, a table, a chair, and a dimly lit […]

Stretch My Faith Heavenly Father, Stretch My Faith

But Caleb tried to quiet the people as they stood before Moses. “Let’s go at once to take the land,” he said. “We can certainly conquer it!” (Numbers 13:30) Picture the word ‘faith’ in scripture.

You Can’t: How to Make Your Spouse…

Pray. Read the Bible. Listen. Communicate. Tithe. Save. Cook. Clean. Show affection. Initiate intimacy. Spend time. Be faithful. Stay. Whew…It would seem that ‘making’ our spouse ‘do’ what we want requires a lot effort, doesn’t it? Not from their perspective, but from ours. It would seem we want to create this super-spouse more than they […]

A Little Less JESUS and A Lot More ME

2 Timothy 4:2-3 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. (3) For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers […]
