Unclean Lips

“And I said: ‘Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!’ Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning... Continue Reading →

Thirst

"My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God" (Psalms 42:2, ESV)? Desire Have you ever wanted something so completely that getting it meant more to you than eating or drinking? I certainly have. The anticipation is almost painful! I am admittedly OCD to begin with, but... Continue Reading →

Wisdom Wednesday: Wounds of a Friend

“Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy” ‭‭(Proverbs‬ ‭27:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬). I’ve written recently about the value of community. In community we find and give comfort; we strengthen the faith of others and are strengthened by theirs. In community we encourage and are ourselves encouraged. But, while community is...

Sovereignty

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭10:29‬ ‭ESV‬‬).

Community

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 ESV)! I’ve mentioned here before that I’m a bit of an... Continue Reading →

Chaos

“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day” (Genesis 1:31 ESV). There’s a theory called Entropy which states that everything is in the process of moving from order to disorder. It certainly doesn’t take much of an imagination... Continue Reading →

Draw Near

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded” (James 4:8 ESV). It doesn’t really take much of an imagination to envision a fiery preacher pointing his finger at you, shaking his Bible, and uttering the words of James 4:8. Even the... Continue Reading →
