Refreshment in the Desert

How blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee, In whose heart are the highways to Zion! Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a spring; The early rain also covers it with blessings. They go from strength to strength. Psalm 84:5-7 How blessed is the man whose strength is in You Continue Reading…

A Worm with Wings

John 8:36 I Peter 2: 9b-10; TLB The yard is one of my “therapy clinics.” (What do you think about when you’re digging holes for the jasmine shoots or pulling up weeds?) I always wind up with dirt caked on my hands and knees, and with a respectable amount on my face and in my Continue Reading…

A Very Present Help

There is that intense need again, Lord. I don’t really know why it comes or where it comes from. It’s that need to be alone–to isolate myself. But I know that’s an impossibility. My world revolves around the “others” in it. The press of people, the demand of duties, the tyranny of the urgent–they have Continue Reading…

Casting Your Burdens on Him

Knowing Where the Rabbits Are

The magician was truly awesome! He held the audience in the palm of his hand from the moment the houselights dimmed, playing with their emotions as deftly as a gifted musician. “Where did those rabbits come from?” “How did those scarves get in there?” “That saw has to be cutting into that woman! Look where Continue Reading…

Message for the Master

His disciples came and took away the body and buried it; and they went and reported to Jesus. Matthew 14:12 Every time I read it I picture how it must have been . . . It was on a cold and windy day when they told Him. Cloaks were wrapped tightly, their wet hoods feeble Continue Reading…

Lions, Bears, and Giants

The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine. 1 Samuel 17:37 “Hey, you guys. Don’t be afraid. I’ll fight this Philistine giant.” But David was young. David was not even a warrior, and certainly not Continue Reading…

Under His Wings
