Psalm 42: As the Deer….

“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?” (Psalms 42:1-2, ESV) This Psalm was my grandmother’s favorite. I’ve always loved it as well; but for a long while I never really... Continue Reading →

Can These Bones Live?

“The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the middle of the valley; it was full of bones. And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold,... Continue Reading →

Anxious?

A friend called me the morning after the rioting at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. He was so frantic and worked up that he kept interrupting me.

When I am focused intently on my work, I get in a zone—when someone approaches me unnoticed I am likely... Continue Reading →

"But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that...
