Come Home

    I can’t think of a worse place to be than in a backslidden state; to know Jesus and then try to hide from Him. It is folly to think we, His children, could hide from Him. He promised He would never leave us. Seriously, it is impossible to not be in His sight. […]

Fear is a Poor Bedfellow

Fear will kill dreams, destroy relationships, paralyze, cause illness, put you in the poor house,  bring depression and even cause physical death. Fear is hellish! Fear comes from Satan. Throughout your life he planted those little seeds of death. He manipulated people to hurt, offend, or misunderstand you. He magnified every failure. He whispers accusations […]

Your Will or His Will

God came down to us as a man, tempted in every way we are tempted, experienced every emotion we experience, and yet He was without sin. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to restore us back to Him. Jesus, fully man, fully God; Emmanuel, God with us. Think about that. Let that sink in, please. […]

Why Forgive?

This is what forgiveness does… … it frees us! When we can see the offender as someone trapped in their own nightmare, a victim (because without Christ that is what we are) then we have better understanding. When we suffer for Christ, we suffer as Christ did, for a people who had no light or […]

Clouded By Insecurity

  Faith is the substance of things hoped for, but not yet seen. Insecurity is the substance of things dreaded/feared, seen or not. Our minds are always on. We have constant thoughts. Sometime the thoughts flash without too much consideration. Sometimes a thought grabs us and we linger. When we catch ourselves lingering on a […]

What Are You Searching For?

We look high and low for something to numb us or someone to fulfill us. Addictions come in many forms. Drugs, alcohol, relationships, impulse shopping, social media, etc… Because there is that something in each of us that is reserved for Him. He planted it in us. Because He desires an intimate relationship with each […]

The Difference is…

  It’s a process, really. Have you ever looked back and thought to yourself, “Look how far I have come!” Then there are the days, when the storm clouds are on the horizon and you feel so ill-equipped. You have momentary amnesia about the storms you have already weathered that did not kill you. Life […]

Heart Shaped Vision

I recently watched a movie about a young girl who lived in her van. At first glance the girl seems to be happy and carefree. It started as a typical movie, young girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy proposes, she refuses him. You are probably asking yourself what does this have to do […]

Free to Fly

As I sit here and listen to Jason Upton sing about freedom, I mediate on the truth of what he is singing. (Click here) Ah, yes, freedom! Isn’t that we all long for? True freedom to be who we were created to be in the security of safety and comfort of knowing we will not […]

Little Girl Hidden

“Be very quiet and still.” She said, covering me up. “Stay hidden until I tell you it is safe to come out.” “But I don’t want to hide. I want to play like the other kids.” I pouted. “It’s not safe!” She scolded. Then softening her tone, “I promise I will come back for you.” […]
