My Anxious Thoughts

When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul. Ps. 94:19 WHEN: Not “if” my anxious thoughts multiply, but when they multiply. In other words, it is going to happen. Is this a warning or a promise or both? Lord, this is so true in my life, in every person’s life I Continue Reading…

Pleasing The Wife Of Your Youth

If you are a wife, let me ask you a favor. Pass this letter on to your husband without reading the remainder of it. Trust me. This may result in a neat surprise for you. Brother, I’m out on a limb with that lead statement to your bride, but if you’re led to follow through Continue Reading…

Covered By His Wings

Psalm 17:8b Wings? God has wings? How do you know that? What do you mean? Why would I want to be “under His wings”? He is talking to us about a refuge that is available for us. What is a refuge? A place of safety. A protected shelter. Imagine it–don’t ask questions–don’t build barriers–just accept Continue Reading…

I’m Clean

For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin. II Corinthians 11:2 (NAS) Just what is a “devotional”? I would say something that expresses my devotion as a Believer to the Lord. Well, these thoughts’if they Continue Reading…

Imprisoned But Choosing Freedom

Your life is a mess? Your days are filled with hassles and pressures? There are times when the pain is so intense physically or emotionally that you want to fall into a limp heap on the floor and yell “uncle” or disappear into the darkness of the closet and close the door? The circumstances cannot Continue Reading…

Water Deeply

I had been watering the rock garden for at least twenty minutes with a spray nozzle, swinging it back and forth being sure each little plant got a good drink. They all looked pretty good and I was extremely proud of myself for taking such good care of my garden (about ten feet in diameter). Continue Reading…

For Such a Time as This

I guess one of my favorite verses in the Bible is Esther 4:14 (paraphrased): Who knows but what you came into the kingdom for such a time as this? Pharaoh’s daughter had one mission assigned to her by God: to find the basket in the reeds. Joseph was schooled for one major event: saving his Continue Reading…

Wait

In quietness and trust is your strength. Isaiah 30:15(b) Lord, it seems that I have no strength at all today. Frustrations have caused my emotions to head for the upper ranges; evaluating the people around me has caused unrest; evaluating myself has caused confusion. But then, I haven’t sat quietly with You, listening, sharing, nor Continue Reading…

Unlimited

With God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26 God. God. Just the name has such incredible meaning. God. Omnipotent–unlimited in power. God. Omnipresent–unlimited in His presence. God. Omniscient–unlimited in wisdom. God. Immutable, unchangeable, the same yesterday, today and forever. God. Sovereign. God. Dependent upon none. What does “unlimited” mean? No limits. Beyond being limited. For Continue Reading…

The Song of My Heart

Lord, when I get up very early in the morning, it is so quiet. Still. Then, in the predawn darkness, a soft, melodious anthem begins. It’s the cardinal. Now I hear the alto in the cooing of the mourning dove; and of course, the mockingbird comes in with his obbligato. It seems they start singing Continue Reading…
