Dear Church, We’ve Made a Mistake

I think we’ve make a mistake. We’ve allowed ourselves to love God’s messengers more than God Himself. We’ve fallen too deeply and too carelessly for their causes, their notoriety, and their truths rather than stand firm in the Truth of God. And when these, our bothers and sisters in Christ, veer off the narrow road, […]

“Shhh, Listen To Me”

“Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live.”  Isaiah 55:3 I popped into the mall the other day to do a little shopping. As I walked along the rail of the upper level, my eye caught something below. You know those play areas for kids; the climb on, crawl around, […]

Viagra vs Vocation

“Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”    Romans 10:17   NIV         It caught me off guard the other day, but I wasn’t overly surprised.   It seems to be the norm now.   It was an ad I heard.   An ad […]

How Joseph Are You?

Literally, failed.   Numbers and figures are my downfall.   So when I see something like the numerical speed of light, I can’t understand it. But here it […]

Why Am I Fat??!!

I have been on a diet FOREVER!  For as long as I can remember, I have been battling weight.  My first memory of a diet was way back in the 5th grade.  I was thin up to that point, but then ballooned.  Family photos tell the story.  From that point on I started the endless […]

A Chainsaw Opportunity

“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.”  2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV     One of my favorite new “reality” shows is about a family who has homesteaded in […]

An “If-y” God

  So many of us operate in the world of “if”, don’t we?     If she is nice to me, I will be nice to her.   If he apologizes, then I will forgive him.   If I’m given a break, I will give them a break.   and so on, and so on… […]
