When The Mountain Won’t Move

“But even if he does not…” Daniel 3:18 Oh I like day hikes! They bring peace and pleasure to my weary soul—something about trekking around in God’s creation. However, it’s been a tough year for me in the whole walking realm. An injury, a surgery and the recovery kept me down and indoors. But I’ve […]

What Jesus Does With Your Faith

“Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet …” – John 12:3a NIV I know what you’ve been doing. Day in and day out, you walk upon the narrow road – determined to pass through the small gate too few find (Matthew 7:14). Every morning […]

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 […]

A Tulip Kind of Faith

“Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.” – Psalm 85:11 NIV    I had forgotten how much I loved tulips.  When I was growing up in Central New York, tulips were a welcomed sign that the cover of winter’s snow was coming to an end.  Soon we’d be free from […]

Jetty Walking & Following Jesus

“Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, LORD.” – Psalm 89:15 (NIV) Last Saturday afternoon, I spent some time wandering around at the beach.  Yup, just me and my trusty camera; taking in the sights and sounds of carefree ocean living.  Definitely, a little piece […]
