What if God was One of Us

Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary? Mark 6:3 Jesus had a workshop. Do you suppose it was tidy? Did He find fulfillment in creating things with His hands? (How different from the worlds He created “in the beginning” . . . with just a word!) Did He have a carpenters belt around Continue Reading…

My Anxiety and God’sConsolation

When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul. Psalm 94:19 O Lord, the thoughts that plague me. Anxious thoughts about what’s happening in my world and in the lives of the people who live in my world with me. And Lord, these anxious thoughts interfere with my relationship with You. Your Continue Reading…

Does It Really Work?

This is a comment from someone who was hurting intensely–in a different way than you are hurting, perhaps. These are the results as she carried through on 1 Peter 5:7. She read it. She believed it. She acted on it. Dear Anabel Yesterday’s note about tying up the package was just great, Anabel. I thought Continue Reading…

Rendezvous

You’ve probably completed this task, but just to seal it in your mind, would you do it again . . . my way? 1 Peter 5:7 You can throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon Him, for you are His personal concern (phillips). Casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you Continue Reading…

A Stubborn Little Lamb

As for God, His way is blameless. Psalm 18:30 For the Lord your God is a compassionate God. Deuteronomy 4:31 Whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son. Romans 8:29 I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect Continue Reading…

Evidence of God’s Love

My dear Lord, You have proven Yourself in my life in times past . . . Your strength Your provision Your love. I am unaware of any of these facets in my being just now. (Even Your love seems so . . . questionable.) I accept what I have learned in times past, not what Continue Reading…

Standing Strong in the Face of Death

Consider these thoughts carefully. Think slowly. Deliberately. What one thing do we seem to fear more than anything else? DEATH Would God desire to teach us not to fear death? YES How could He teach us–show us how to meet this fearful event–most effectively? (Before you read my suggestions, think of your own plan for Continue Reading…

Follow Me

He said to him, “Follow Me!” John 21:19 “Peter, the time is coming when you will grow old and someone will force you to go where you don’t want to go. But don’t concern yourself with this, Peter. You will glorify Me in your death. “In the meantime, Follow Me.” “But Lord, what about John?” Continue Reading…

Set Free by God’s Truth

How could I have been so stupid? Why, oh why did I do that? What a loser I am! When am I going to learn? How long is God going to put up with me? I’m still stumbling around and causing all sorts of problems. Time and time again I fail. I’m sick of myself Continue Reading…

You are the Battleground

How I pray that these thoughts will be a source of strength to you, for you, and through you (and all of those are different). Ponder them carefully, prayerfully. Listen, the Lord is talking to you. . . . Do you see that the Life in you that the enemy longs to crush is the Continue Reading…
