The Carver

Sir, we wish to see Jesus. John 12:21 Do you really know what you “look like” now that you are a new creature in Christ Jesus (II Cor. 5:17)? We were taking a family vacation and were watching wood carvers at work–making astounding statues of Indians out of huge rough-hewn logs. Bill was amazed at Continue Reading…

For Such a Time as This

And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this? Esther 4:14 Esther didn’t have a mom and dad, so she lived with her Uncle Mordecai in Susa, the capital of the 127 provinces ruled by Ahasuerus.

Do You See the Wind?

The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit. John 3:8 Dr. James S. Stewart wrote in his book, The Wind of the Spirit, these words: “Listen to the Continue Reading…

A Divine Plan

And He had to pass through Samaria. John 4:4 He was hot, thirsty, and weary. It was lunchtime and He still had several miles to go before reaching Galilee.

And it was generally the same crew that made the trips: Mother, Daddy, Betty Jean (my big sister) and I, Conrad and Ruby, Continue Reading…

Dedicated to Me

You lightly broke your solemn vows to me, yet I will keep the pledge I made to you when you were young. I will establish an everlasting covenant with you forever. Ezekiel 16: 59-60 TLB I see myself in that verse of scripture. The day that I followed my Dad to the front of the Continue Reading…

Learning to Dance Backwards

I need to learn Ginger’s techniques! However, there’s a very important point being overlooked. There must be a leader when Continue Reading…

Alone

Matthew 4:1-11 He threw back His shoulders, lifted His chin, and walked slowly and fearlessly into the dry, barren land. There was determination evident in His walk, His posture, His eyes, the set of His mouth.
