Using a Gift

It is wise NOT to kick a gift horse in the mouth! Truth is we have all been given amazing gifts! Have you noticed whenever you use your special gift, time flys as you enjoy music, hosting, helping, cleaning, organizing, sewing, writing or encouraging others??? The following poem streamed through as I pondered the book…

Who is that?

Who never departs from us? Who never ceases to surprise us? Who is everywhere we are? Who gives us courage? Who is always available 24/7 and Who is always for us never against us? Who consistently issues us mercy and grace? Who is extravagantly patient with us? Who intercedes in prayer for us? Who squeezes…

Jesus is Essential

Jesus said “I am come NOT to destroy you.” We have been told who is essential during the pandemic. In March of 2020 it was the first time in American history that the church’s doors were ordered closed. Jesus said to the church in the book of Revelation “behold I’ve set before you an open…

His writing indicates a supernatural skill…

Psalm

Enjoying the poetic love of Psalms, we are lifted up by the love of God.  As we luxuriate in His Word, His supernatural way is to enable us to love ourselves, and others as our Father loves. The beautiful words of our ancestors give us permission to talk to God with pure transparency. We too…

Yet David admitted that at times he felt weary as he agonized over God’s silence.  “Why, O Lord, do You reject me and hide your face from me.”  Has anyone ever compared their spiritual life to another and found themselves…
