Staying Too Close–For Comfort

Meet Bo, our “Heinz 57 Varieties” dog, who is 15″ tall, 4’7″ long (nose to tail tip) and weighs ninety-seven pounds. You couldn’t “pinch an inch” if I offered you a ten-dollar bill! If Bo just knew how ferocious he looks! Let’s pretend you walk into our yard. He has basset ears, so they never Continue Reading…

It Was Nothing–Really

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13: 34-35 For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in Continue Reading…

Daddy, do you love me?

Amy is seven years old. She has a loving mother and dad who have communicated that love to her through the early years of childhood–from her first breath of earth-air. Her dad, especially, is her close companion–he holds her, teaches her, expresses his love for her in many and various ways–a thoughtful, protective, loving relationship. Continue Reading…

A Gentle Friend

I Kings 19:11-12 And as Elijah stood there the Lord passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain; it was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind, there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And Continue Reading…

Grab His Tail!

. . . greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. I John 4:4 (NAS) Do you know what a Mountain Boomer is? Well, it’s a species of lizard. I don’t know much about lizards except that if you try to catch one and break its tail off it Continue Reading…

Does God Have a Plan for My Pain?

I really resist (or do I resent?) the trite words that are often given as sage advice to someone who is going through difficult times. Well, just think about poor Aunt Pearl (or your sister, or someone you knew thirteen years ago, or someone you don’t even know). What if you were in her shoes? Continue Reading…

Rest

To rest. What a pleasant thought. “Surely I have composed and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child rests against his mother, My soul is like a weaned child within me.” Psalm 131:2 “I am quiet now before the Lord, just as a child who is weaned from the breast. Yes, my begging has been Continue Reading…

The Sleepy Heads

esus was human, just like we are, but “Superhuman” too, and I think we are sometimes prone to forget His humanity. There was that time when He had been ministering to hurting people all day long and He just needed to be alone so, He distanced Himself from the hurting masses;[1] He was angry and Continue Reading…

Just “Thinking” is All it Takes

He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32) Bill very often makes this statement, “When it seems that things are just not adding up the way they should and I’m down, all I have Continue Reading…

Grace in Times of Need

Let me ask you a question: When does God give us “grace”? Oh, I know, every act of God is full of grace. But specifically . . . Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need. Continue Reading…
