Tell it Real

Recently at a dinner party I had a long conversation with someone who, until that conversation, was merely an acquaintance. During our conversation he genuinely shared about his life, where he had been and where he sees himself going. I reciprocated. By the end of the evening, through honest conversation, I had a new friend. Continue Reading…

Leaving a Legacy of Courage and Faith

The nation of Israel stood on the precipice of a new era. They had experienced the spiritual highs of the Red Sea escape from Egypt and the spiritual lows of the golden calf incident at the foot of Mt. Sinai. They had wandered in the wilderness for years and were now closing in the land Continue Reading…

Like a River Flows

“As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalms 103:12 NKJV It always amazes me when God steps into my everyday life and teaches me a profound lesson.  One day when I was working at a hospital in Knoxville, TN, I stood up and caught Continue Reading…

Be Loved

One of the deepest longings of mankind is to be loved. We will do almost anything to be loved. Our whole being craves and thirsts for love, and not for any kind of love, but for pure “unconditional” love. Have you ever wondered why this is so? We will fight each other, manipulate each other, Continue Reading…

The Value of God’s Word

Just before a platoon of soldiers crossed a minefield they received an intelligence report mapping out the precise location of every mine. They made good use of that information! Lots of people think God’s Word is a list of do’s and don’ts’rules to make people act good in lieu of having a good time. But Continue Reading…

The Lion or the Lamb

I remember a story told by Dwight Edwards in his book Revolution Within. He said to imagine that you are at the zoo in the farm animal pavilion. You reach over to pet a soft wooly lamb, and it looks up at you and licks your hand. “Oh how nice,” you think. As you leave, Continue Reading…

Settle Down in Christ

“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalms 46:10 NASB I don’t know about you, but I can easily become overwhelmed with the burdens of life, the various responsibilities on my plate, and the sheer volume of activity on my Continue Reading…

My Amazing Morning with Jesus

Personal Testimony time comes when God reveals Himself in a real and personal way. This occurred anew for me Friday March 9, 2012. I pray He will speak to you as I seek to give Him glory for manifesting Himself to me in what I experienced as, “My Amazing Morning with Jesus.” I usually take Continue Reading…

Knowing Something vs. Learning Something

Sometimes I rely on what someone has taught me about God instead of coming to know Him and His ways for myself. And when what I’ve been taught is not the full truth about a matter, I tend to doubt God instead of doubting what I’ve learned about Him. For instance, I’ve heard preachers and Continue Reading…

The Love of God

My precious grandson’s spent the night tonight. God has used these little boys to teach me more about the love of God than just about anything I’ve experienced in my life. Being the survivor of abuse, one of the repercussions of my experiences, left me having trouble giving or receiving love for many years. As Continue Reading…
