Weeping and Walking

Recently I read an article by John Piper that changed my view on dealing with loss and weeping. One statement that is highlighted on my heart is, “Tears, I feel you. You make me want to quit life. But there is a field to be sown (dishes to be washed, car to be fixed, sermon…

Safety Net

    Sometimes it’s hard to be “strong and courageous” as God commands many times in the book of Joshua. All hell is seamlessly shaking loose around you and all the sudden you can’t even focus on Jesus. I’ve been wrestling to feel safe lately. I’ve been to a lot of places where safety should…

Kill the Lifesucker

His life was in utter turmoil, yet Job still loved the Lord. In chapter three of this book we find Job among three of His friends mourning his losses and sickness. They had come to mourn with Job and according to the Bible they sat on the ground in silence for seven whole days because…

Do you Hear Him?

  Defeated because of the lies being shouted in your ear by the enemy. Robbed of many possessions. Life seems to be one wind driven storm after another. Your walk seared by one hot iron of agony after another. The road looks dark, cold and rainy where you are right now and you can’t see…

Walking During the Night

It occurs to me that many of us live life by the steering wheel of fear. Trying continually to snatch it back with many failed attempts. Some examples might be the building of invisible, emotional walls around our hearts so no one can hurt us, never driving because someone we loved died tragically in a car…

Prepare for Battle

Can a soldier fight without proper education and training? Can a car run effectively without gasoline? Will a lamp shine brightly without drawing power from the electrical socket? If the answer to all these questions is “no” why do we think we can woo a lost world with the love of Jesus Christ without first-hand…

The Voice of One

“He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord…” John 1:23 I once heard it said that John the Baptist recognized the divinity of Jesus long before anyone else because it says in Luke 1:41 “And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the…

Intricate Things

Intricate details, ones that are small in comparison to the vast earth we inhabit are looked over by most. Take for instance the changing colors of leaves in the fall or the dots on the back of a tiny lady bug. When is the last time you noticed the intricate things around you? When my…

Dig Up the Old Wells

Before social media, money, jobs, and society took over the reins of our lives. There was a day when men sought God before any other thing. A day when every step of the servant was led of the Lord. A day when servants listened to the voice of Jesus rather than being deafened by all the other…

An Expression of Jesus

Is there a way to be an expression of Jesus in today’s world? Ponder on that for a moment with me. I wonder continually about this question because Christianity has been lied on by demonic forces from hell. Remember and tuck this in your heart, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against…

Don’t Suppress HIM

Step away for a while, be still, know that Hes near you sweet child. His ear is bent toward your lips. He hears you beloved. His heart overwhelmed and melted by every adoration you utter He collects every tear in His bottle. You’re the apple of His eye, the flame in His eyes, the love…
