Fear Not

“You whom I took from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest corners, saying to you, "You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you off"; fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,... Continue Reading →

Great and Hidden Things

“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known” (Jeremiah 33:3). I can remember when my children were young and their appetites for knowledge were insatiable. With eager anticipation they presented their queries at seemingly twice the speed of sound. I don’t know... Continue Reading →

We Share In Christ!

"But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called "today," that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end" (Hebrews 3:13-14 ESV). Like most people, I tend to think about... Continue Reading →

Wingman?

“I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure” (Psalms‬ ‭16:8-9‬ ‭ESV‬‬). I remember well the scene from several TV shows and movies. The small protagonist is shaking before... Continue Reading →

Desperation

"Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet and implored him earnestly, saying, 'My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.' And he went with him"... Continue Reading →

Mercy Not Sacrifice

"Go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.' For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners" (Matthew 9:13 ESV). Every now and then a scripture jumps out at me while I'm reading. Usually I assume that God is trying to tell me something; it's not always a verse that I... Continue Reading →

He Holds Your Hand

"For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, "Fear not, I am the one who helps you'" (Isaiah 41:13 ESV). As an Army brat, I had the privilege of living in some great and interesting places. Among them was the three years spent on the Hawaiian Island... Continue Reading →

I Am Convinced

"But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me" (2 Timothy 1:12 ESV).  I've always had a special place in my heart for First and Second Timothy, as I share his name. I... Continue Reading →

Burden Bearer

“Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, The God who is our salvation. Selah” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭68:19‬ ‭NASB‬‬). I'm a worrier.I don't pace the floor or bite my nails, but I'm a worrier nonetheless. I internalize my worry in the same manner that I internalize anger or depression. I've been an introvert all my... Continue Reading →
