Wasted Hours

Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, And rely on horses, And trust in chariots because they are many, And in horsemen because they are very strong. But do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the Lord. Isaiah 31:1 (NAS) I had a hostess committee appointed to help Continue Reading…

Safe

Ready to fly away with me? Our borders are limitless! Our confinement is as narrow as we allow it to be. Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. I would flee far away and stay in the desert; I would hurry to my place of Continue Reading…

Resting in God’s Promises

God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Though the earth should change, And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah. Psalm 46:1-3 What does this mean to Continue Reading…

Choosing to Sing in the Night

God my Maker . . . gives songs in the night. Job 35:10 The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night. A prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8 It is very late. It is very dark. It is very quiet. So Continue Reading…

The Sufferings of This World

You are looking at this only from a human point of view and not from God’s. Mark 8:33 tlb I cringe when I hear someone say, “God took my son,” or “God brought this deformed child into my life,” or “God caused this tragic accident.” This is looking at things from the human point of Continue Reading…

God’s Self-Portrait

The Lord says: Let not the wise man bask in his wisdom, nor the mighty man in his might, nor the rich man in his riches. Let them boast in this alone: That they truly know me, and understand that I am the Lord of justice and of righteousness whose love is steadfast, and that Continue Reading…

Seeing God in the Storm

Thou hast been a defense for the helpless, A defense for the needy in his distress, A refuge from the storm, A shade from the heat. Isaiah 25:4 Will your imagination work today? Can you close your eyes and be very still for just a few minutes . . . placing yourself in the pictures Continue Reading…

Finding Joy and Peace

Isaiah 26:3 Philippians 4:6-7 My joy, my peace are no one’s responsibility but my own. I place too great an expectation on any person (including myself) if I hold them responsible for being my joy and my peace. No. That joy and that peace are too fragile. They are shallowly rooted in an imperfect source Continue Reading…
