Being vs. Doing

I remember watching a video of an Olympic long-distance race; I think it was the marathon. Two runners entered the Olympic stadium after running 26 miles to finish the last two laps on the track in the stadium. The lead runner was about 50-yards ahead of the second place runner. As they approached the finish […]

Dust Unto Dust

Genesis 3:19 (NASB) says, “By the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and unto dust you will return.” This is the theme of Ash Wednesday, which begins 40 days of Lenten repentance until the crucifixion of Jesus […]

Not Guilty, Your Honor!

In my mind’s eye, I can envision a courtroom scene on Judgment Day. Satan is the prosecuting attorney, and he has spent hours presenting the evidence of every one of my sins.

“A bruised reed He will not break; and a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth justice.” (Isaiah 42:3 NASB) This wonderful word of God from the Book of Isaiah in the Old Testament has been an especially anointed scripture throughout my Christian walk with Jesus.

One of the most comforting Scriptures to me is Psalm 32:7 – “You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance.”  Whatever has happened, is happening, or will happen in the future, God is always our hiding place!  He always comes through for us in any circumstance! […]


Wow!  It’s a new year with a new website and a new book! With all of the distressing and difficult things that happened in 2020, God has remained faithful behind the scenes!  Many of us have deepened our walk with Jesus Christ, had spiritual and physical healings, and been given new things to do (like […]

The Boat

This morning I was reading my Bible in the book of Matthew chapter 8. Jesus had been teaching about the cost of following Him. Then it says He got into the boat and the disciples followed Him. Then the story goes on the say that a great storm suddenly arose and the waves swept over […]
