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 →

A Fresh Look At A New Thing

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19, ESV) I have heard this verse used a many times since the beginning of my faith walk with Jesus. It was, in my observation,... Continue Reading →

Harmony and Grace

“Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” —Romans... Continue Reading →

Vinedresser

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit” (John‬ ‭15:1-2‬ ‭ESV‬‬). I have made considerable strides in the development of self-discipline. I'm not where I... Continue Reading →

"And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6 ESV). Do you ever feel as though you're just spinning your wheels? I know that visitors to my home have felt that way while attempting to climb... Continue Reading →

Nearsighted

“For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or... Continue Reading →

Getting in the Way

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  (John 14:6, ESV) One of my favorite things about scripture is that it meets us where we are. The same verse or verses can speak different things to us at different times in... Continue Reading →

Go! Guatemala Part 1

“I don’t want to go!” Standing in the kitchen, eyes fixed on each vehicle coming down the road, waiting for my ride, I almost couldn’t believe that those five little words popped into my head. My suitcase, carry-on and personal item bags were all carefully packed. My checklist had been checked and rechecked, nothing had... Continue Reading →
