Going Home

I Corinthians 15:16-17 II Corinthians 5:6-8 I Thessalonians 4:13-14 Revelation 21:4-5 I was pondering death one day, immersed in the loneliness that is inevitable when someone you have loved so very much isn’t a part of your life any longer. I would no longer be going to Poteau “for a few days to be with Continue Reading…

Doing God’s Will

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 I think I’m seeking His will for me as I plan my day — praying about things: just how much I should be involved in the lives of my boys; what phone calls Continue Reading…

Free to Serve

John 13:8-9 I think I might have reacted the same way Peter did. “Lord! You are not about to wash my feet!” Peter, they say, was impulsive, and had his foot in his mouth most of the time. I relate to Peter. He was honest. He was open. He didn’t try to make people think Continue Reading…

A Friend of Jesus

A Friend of Jesus Matthew 21:17 John 11:5,11 John 11:43 “Lazarus!” That’s Jesus! I didn’t know they were coming for a visit. “Mom! Mary and Joseph and Jesus are here!” The two boys had been friends a long time . . . best friends. They enjoyed being together, especially each year when they would all Continue Reading…

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…

Trusting Him with My Burdens

God has told me to give Him my burdens, remember? Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you. Psalm 55:22 I sincerely want to do this. I know He is much more capable than I am when it comes to handling life’s problems. He’s always present on the scene, able to choreograph Continue Reading…

Casting Your Burdens on Him

He’s hurting again, Lord, and there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s been such a long ordeal. How much can he endure? She moved out . . . she’s gone . . . what did I say? What did I do? God, I tried so hard to be the mother she needed me to Continue Reading…

Love That Never Lets You Go

Apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5 Can you imagine God, scowling and with His finger pointing straight at you, saying . . . “Look, I have led you this far–but NO FURTHER! You’re on your own from here on out. I have to eventually cut the apron strings, don’t I? You have Continue Reading…
