Good news in spite of Politics!

I HAVE GOOD NEWS!  Are you tired of politics like I am? Then it might help you like it did me to remember: God knows the truth of what’s going on. And most of all, remembering our trust is in Him and not in any person or political agenda! Regrettably there is no escaping it:…

Oh no! Not “Forgiveness”…again!

I don’t know about you, but so much has been written about our need to forgive that I feel I’ve heard it all. So whenever I see another write-up on the topic I tend to go right on past it. You too? But this time please stop and don’t by-pass this one. I just learned…

Do-ers and Be-ers…

You’re right. It’s a crazy title, isn’t it?  But did you know God has called us to be both “do-ers” and “be-ers”? Oddly enough I used to see them as being essentially the same thing—but I recently learned they are not. Part of my fixation with the word “be” began when I started thinking about…

Voices crying in the wilderness

I’VE BEEN PROCESSING AGAIN… This time about politics and social media in today’s world.

I’ve just been thinking… Look how easy it is for the smallest thing to throw a wheel or fan out of balance. When it does, these once pleasurable devices can become rather costly if they’re tires, and both noisy and annoying, can’t they?  I’m seeing that’s also the same with various things that make the…

Rocked to the core with the news?

Yesterday I noticed on social media that some Christians are expressing their dismay and surprise, evidently over the shocking number of well know public personalities who have recently announced they’ve decided to “leave the Faith”. Their names aren’t important, but the reason we could be seeing this happen sure is! The full-of-dismay question that seems…

So… you want God to bless you

Last night I decided to start rereading the book of Psalm again. I’ve read it many times, but it’s been awhile since I’ve dug into it to enjoy anew its many nuggets of insight, encouragement and wisdom. But this morning a surprise awaited me. I saw those first three famous verses (Psalm 1:1-3) in a…

Feeling haunted by your past?

Are you haunted by past failures?  You’re not alone; I’ve been there. I know how it feels to be tied up in knots about it too. But I have good news! God wants us all to know that, “It’s true we can’t change the past. HOWEVER, we CAN loosen and be free of the knots…
