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 …

Pace Yourself

I want to get back “in the race” now- but it may take six months to year. The reason why: nerve damage and back surgery which has kept me pretty close to home and is slow to heal. I want to be well now. (I always picture my granddaughter’s book, The Pout Pout Fish, when …

The God Who Hears!

Do you wonder sometimes if God is listening to you?. If our prayers aren’t answered in the time frame we have asked for, or if we ask to hear from Him but only get silence, it’s easy to go down the path of worrying and thinking “does He really hear me?” I believe God is …

God’s Plans, In His Time

This time of year there are always several graduations, weddings and retirement celebrations to attend, and, as always, many other life changing events happening. Sometimes it’s things we didn’t “plan” to experience. Even when it doesn’t seem like it, the Lord is with us every step of the way. Take to heart this great scripture …

Jesus, the King of Glory 🌅

Today, Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter, begins Holy Week. This day is commemorated in Christianity as the day when Jesus of Nazareth presented Himself to His people, and the world, as their Messiah, Savior and King, by riding into Jerusalem on the foal of a donkey. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town …
