Watch, Stand, Be…Love

It’s hot and Saharan dust is swirling over many lands. Covid still abounds. Hate is marching in the streets. Do you, like me, find yourself sighing – a lot? Man is not in control. We can’t control the weather. We can’t control pandemics. We… Continue Reading “Watch, Stand, Be…Love”

Written…

Easter is a few short days away. It will be the first one (since becoming a Christian) that I have not been in church celebrating all that this remembrance means. I’m hoping there’s a lot less bunnies and colored eggs this year – and… Continue Reading “Written…”

Which Way…

Stepping out of one year into the next – a last day becomes a first, as seconds tick one into the other. Odd how we think up ‘resolutions’ or aspire to better this or that just because of a date on the calendar. We’re… Continue Reading “Which Way…”

How to Live…

Heard this recently but not sure who to credit for saying it: “If He thought we worth dying for, isn’t He worth living for?” This is what Christians and non-Christians alike miss daily: living for HIM. Self is such an imposer. Our focus trends… Continue Reading “How to Live…”

For the Joy…

Caught in joy – that moment after working for months on a project, it’s finished, and you get the big check or promotion. That moment after training for months on end and you complete the race in record time. That moment after going through… Continue Reading “For the Joy…”

Past Tense…

Sometimes ‘the past’ brings smiles, sometimes tears. Trying to forget, many live on a fast track to whatever tomorrow holds. Always seeking that next best thing, moment, breakthrough. Others, weighed down, can’t move into now. We get lost forgetting that Jesus has already secured… Continue Reading “Past Tense…”

The Fixer…

Can’t fix the things that seem most broken? Me either. We pray, try to forget or bury, do things, say things, buy things, and worry. And yet the very things we fret over are oh so useful in the hands of The Fixer. No… Continue Reading “The Fixer…”

More…

Some things we want more of – some we don’t. Seems like everyone wants more money, more of what someone else has, more time. No one wants more heartache, more pain, or more wrinkles. And yet more money is never enough. More of those we… Continue Reading “More…”

Power-Less…

Most of us will never find ourselves behind actual jail cell bars, but often invisible bars keep us locked up tight. Some of those bars are bad habits, some are past hurts, some are poor decisions, still more come from the illusion that we can… Continue Reading “Power-Less…”

And…the Brave

   For a four year old the shallow end of the pool is safe, but the deep end, forget it. The shallow end is where we want our lives to be – safe, familiar, nothing we can’t handle. In this life, before we know it, something… Continue Reading “And…the Brave”
