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…

All Times…

Sometimes I let people down. Do you? Sometimes I let myself down. It’s gotten harder in our world of instant everything. To take the time to think before we speak, act, react – seems archaic. So there’s face time, instant messaging, texts, and more….

Fussy…

Somewhere between sleep and wanting to see the world around him – this two month old can’t quite close those big eyes. So he fusses. A lot like you and I. We’re offered rest in Jesus. We can read that He grants sleep to…

Transforming…

Want to make a difference? To who, for who – what difference? We’re conditioned that life is all about making our mark, being remembered. That’s a lot of pressure. Remembered how long, and for what? More questions than answers when the questions are all…

Go, Be…

The Sunday message has often ended with ‘Go be the church’. I knew what he meant, I knew the intention. I thought I did. But knowing and action are different. Knowing can be acknowledging and even agreeing. Action is both of those and then…

Sighs…

You do know it don’t you? You are the joy set before Him, set before Jesus, set before your Savior, set before the lover of your soul. “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the…

The Crab In the Pool

  This crab really is ‘pretty’. Definitely a female – she had on a blue mask, red lipstick, her larger claw was polished and white. But she found herself in a pool she didn’t bargain for… At times I’ve found myself in pools like that. When…
