Wise Counsel

Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17 I was having some problems with work, knowing just what was expected of me, just who was my superior, how I was to conduct myself in the office, and other things. I was really pretty defeated, feeling that I was not living up to the Continue Reading…

But I Can Do It! Can’t I?

…apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5 God’s major emphasis in my training was the one that He weaves so skillfully through the Bible from In the beginning on page 7 to the Amen on page 1923. He just keeps trying to impress us as His children that we were never intended to Continue Reading…

Resting or Resisting?

Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “Today if you hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as when they provoked Me, As in the day of trial in the wilderness, Where your fathers tried Me by testing Me, And saw My works for forty years. Therefore I was angry with this generation, And Continue Reading…

Now Means Now!

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1 Now (adverb): at the present time; at once (Webster) I’ve been thinking about the difference between conviction and condemnation. When the Holy Spirit convicts me of something that I have done wrong, the thoughts will be something like this: “I Continue Reading…

Now moving Continue Reading…

Bubbles

Years ago, Anabel and I bought an English bulldog named Bubbles. We’d leave Bubbles in the house while we were away. Our homecoming was a grand reunion of jumping, whining, wiggling with joy, etc. (Bubbles, that is, not Anabel). The second order of business was to let Bub out the back door to water the Continue Reading…

I Am A Sheep

I read Phillip Keller’s book, “A Shepherd Looks at Psalm Twenty-three” years ago. (Isn’t it just astounding how much smarter we are years later?) I’m rereading and am amazed in finding out just how much time is invested by my beloved Shepherd in watching over Anabel, this “helpless, timid, feeble creature whose only recourse is Continue Reading…

He’s Praying For Me!

Maybe you’ve never thought this way, but I have. When I’m going through a difficult time thoughts such as these come into my thinking processes: If Billy Graham would pray for me . . . or Benny Hinn . . . or James Robinson . . .. things would happen for sure and certain. Someone Continue Reading…

A Secret Envelope

You have seen me tossing and turning through the night. You have collected all my tears and preserved them in Your bottle! You have recorded every one in Your book. Psalm 56:8 TLB My wrinkled, soiled envelope dated June 27, 1976 is still sealed. I haven’t opened it since that midnight hour when I, sobbing, Continue Reading…
