Clinging Like a Child

My soul clings to You and Your right hand upholds me . . . Psalm 63:8 She shouldn’t have been on the field while the kids were playing ball–but “shouldn’t haves” are birthed by hindsight and those words can bring despondency, guilt, self-condemnation–all sorts of bad things. No, she should not have been on the Continue Reading…

A Walk Around the Block

And when we obey Him, every path He guides us on is fragrant with His lovingkindness and His truth. Psalm 25:10 (TLB) Most anyone who knows me knows Wesley. When I visit with friends they don’t ask about our boys–they ask, “How’s Wes?” If you and I visit regularly or just every so often, you, Continue Reading…

One of the Greats: Jeremiah

Ah Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You! Jeremiah 32:17 I many times will go through a book in the Bible and read just my underlinings from months or years before–knowing that they were meaningful to Continue Reading…

They Missed Prayer Meeting

Acts 3:1-11 Peter and John were on their way to prayer meeting. I’m sure they attended regularly and everyone expected to see them in their designated pew–and if they weren’t there the possibilities were numerous and each one carefully considered. “Is Peter’s mother sick again? Do you suppose they went back to fishing with their Continue Reading…

Striving After the Wind

I have seen all the works which have been done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and striving after the wind. Ecclesiastes 1:14 I thought I had a tight grip on my grocery list (I spent a lot of time making out that list!) but the wind was really strong and grabbed it Continue Reading…

Identifying the Enemy

But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. Romans 13:14 (NAS) Let us be Christ’s men from head to foot, and give no chances to the flesh to have its fling. J.B. Phillips Paraphrase When Bill, Pres, and I began our counseling ministry, we Continue Reading…

I Know Him – Case Closed!

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever. Hebrews 13:8 (NAS) We get many prayer requests because of our Prayer Community site. If you haven’t noticed it, investigate and become a part’it is totally private and your anonymity is secure. The neat thing is that you can be completely truthful and tell Continue Reading…

Despair

Her husband is in Hospice. They are waiting for the inevitable. His marriage is gone. His wife moved out and took the girls. It’s final. She has melanoma. The future promises to be filled with pain. The prognosis is not good. He can’t find a job and they are living at an existence level. Her Continue Reading…

Defusing a Tantrum

“I simply cannot do this! I don’t even WANT to do this! And I’m not feeling well. I don’t think people should even expect me to undertake this job. It’s too demanding! God, You know how distressed I am! I’m angry, hurt, disillusioned, and disappointed–all of those things! I refuse to do it. I’ll just Continue Reading…

Chub

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe. Proverbs 18:10 Chub has a new home! And a new and very important job! He took over as watchdog at the parsonage when the big German Police dog that used to live in the backyard went to dog Continue Reading…
