Am I My Brother’s Keeper?

I was troubled this morning by a story on the news of a young 10 year-old who had crossed the border with a group from Mexico into the USA and then was abandoned and all alone. Heartbreaking. And there are thousands of children crammed together in buildings near the border that are overwhelming the government …

Take Heart Children of the King!

I saved a Bluebird. I heard rustling in our wood stove insert. I was not sure what it was for a while – a mouse, snake, or bird?? But, I am not the bravest when it comes to varmints, or any small creature that moves quickly.  It was too dark to see anything through the …

On The Lookout

“He was one who lived expectantly, on the lookout …” Mark 15:42-45 MSG I love that: “one who lived expectantly, on the lookout for the kingdom of God.” I think that was difference between Joseph of Arimathea and the other members of the Jewish Council. He was LOOKING for God and expecting that He would …

People are frustrated over contradictory information on the pandemic. People are polarized over everything from lifestyle choices to political leanings. What can we do? One thing I know for sure is …

Extravagance

“Relax, cease striving and know that I am God.” I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalms 46:10 “Our Lord made the way for every Son of Man to come into communion with God. The Saints do not end in crucifixion; by the Lord‘s grace, they end in …

“For Such A Time As This”

When I read the story of Esther, I’m always struck with one profound thought: that the Lord is always preparing us, all of our lives “for such a time as this”: That tucked in every corner of the Living Word of God, we are being taught “for such a time as this”. I know that …

It’s a Matter of Perspective

Do you know what is frustrating? Toilet paper not being put on the right way. And you know what is even more amazing is that there are people who aren’t aware that there is a right way to put toilet paper on the roll! How’s that for focused frustration? But this speaks to the struggle …

Wild Imaginations

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” 2Cor: 10:5 (I memorized it in KJV in college) It’s one of my often quoted, memorized verses. Especially when struggling with fear! Sometimes when I worry my mind goes …
