THE CHILL OF THE MORNING AIR sent a gentle shiver down my spine as I crawled out of my tent. In the distance I heard the call of a loon welcoming the dawn of another day.  An orange hue painted the eastern sky, making the wispy fog over the lake dance like fire. I followed... Continue Reading →

Ministering Spirits

Just as in Jesus's day, where the Pharisees and Sadducees  couldn't agree about the existence of angels, people still argue. Some cite their own experiences of miraculous interventions as proof that angels exist; while others argue that there are simple explanations, or chance, that can offer explanations for said "miracles." Scripture is hardly silent about... Continue Reading →

Strong Tower

"Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. Let me dwell in your tent forever" (Psalms 61:1-3... Continue Reading →
