From Fear to Trust

Romans 11: 33-36 We first noticed her in the backyard under the hedge scared to death. She was actually trembling. How or why she had been mistreated was a mystery, but she was really skittish. She was also really hungry and lonesome, so she compromised. She stifled her fear just enough to let us see Continue Reading…

The Witness of Suffering

David. What a magnetic person he must have been. And the influence of his life goes on and on. He’s influenced my life. And yet, the years between us are many and the comparisons few. . . . David was a powerful king. I’ll never be a political figure. One good reason is that I’m Continue Reading…

Grace, Not Deliverance

We can’t deny that painful circumstances invade our lives. But we must put them in their proper perspective. Pres, my eldest, was going through a time of deep disillusionment, hurt, loneliness, confusion, and penetrating self-evaluation. He shared with me how the following thoughts brought clarity in his thinking, how they enveloped him in peace and Continue Reading…

Promised Suffering, Promised Comfort

Just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5 Here is something very important that we must realize: Christ never allows abundant sufferings without providing abundant comfort. It is so easy for me to accept and expect the abundant comfort that Your Word Continue Reading…

I thank You, Lord, for new days, new hours, new minutes, for even the new seconds! New beginnings. Teach us to number our days and recognize how few Continue Reading…

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…
