Passion

“The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.”  (Proverbs 16:9, ESV) Recently I’ve been encouraged by my Pastor to take a fresh look at my life, to re-evaluate the direction that God may be leading me. As a part of that, I’ve been looking at my passions, things in life—past and... Continue Reading →

A Reminder in Troubled Times

“For in him we live, and move, and have our being…” (Acts 17:28a ESV). It's like an adventure novel. Covid-19, the Corona Virus, is spreading in all directions across the globe.

"For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God" (Romans 8:13-14 ESV). As infants we were carried about by our parents. We... Continue Reading →

But although we did almost everything together, George had a naughty streak. Somehow he never got caught. No matter... Continue Reading →

Suffering and Sovereignty

“As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" Jesus answered, "It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him” (‭‭John‬ ‭9:1-3‬ ‭ESV‬‬).... Continue Reading →

Shedding Your Blood

"In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood"  (Hebrews 12:4, ESV). If there is one verse in the Bible that haunts me, one verse that can keep me awake at night, Hebrews 12:4 is that verse. Whether walking in my legalist phase, living in the “freedom of...

3 Steps To Success

“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master” (Matthew 25:21 ESV).
