[2] Listen closely to the thunder of His voice, And the rumbling that goes out from His mouth. Under the whole heaven He lets Continue Reading…

Ask the Beasts

Even the animals – the donkey and the ox – know their owner and appreciate his care for them, but not my people Israel. No matter what I do for them, they sill don’t care. Isaiah 1:3 TLB [1] “You’ve been a part of my life for forty-two years dear Gertrude and you have helped Continue Reading…

This is One Powerful God!

Simeon’s Patience

That’s significant, for even though Simeon had been given a specific revelation-that he would see the Christ before he died-he was actually part of Continue Reading…

Friends

It was a very impressive gathering with people I greatly admired. I didn’t know any of them especially and that was all right; I could admire from a distance.

Secure

Jude, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ. Jude 1 (NAS) Insecurity. It can drag you down into a sticky morass of self-condemnation, self-degradation, and self-doubt.[1] I think there is one prevailing need controlling much of our Continue Reading…

Is That Possible for Me?

My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. Psalm 62:5 (NAS) Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.
