Read that Again

What book could you read over and over again? The book I read again and again would be the Bible. Every year I read it cover to cover, and have since about 1999. I do that in addition to the devotions I read and my own word studies. Psalms 119 covers a lot of the... Continue Reading →

The Valley

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” ‭Psalm‬ ‭23‬:‭4‬ This passage immediately takes me back to Israel as we stood atop what is known as the Valley of Shadow of Death. The... Continue Reading →

Break Out

I love quotes. Each month I put one up on my whiteboard at the office that is inspirational for the month. Looking for a quote suitable for April, I came across this one and just really appreciated it. “The Easter eggs symbolizes our ability to break out of the hardened, protective shell we’ve surrounded ourselves...

“So then, my dear friends, stand firm and steady. Keep busy always in your work for the Lord, since you know that nothing you do in the Lord's service is ever useless.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15‬:‭58‬ I like to be busy when I work.

One of the last chapters highlighted the story of Achsah,the daughter of Caleb, found in Joshua 15. They talked about how... Continue Reading →

They Forgot to Tell Jesus

“So he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the field that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there; so Jesus, wearied as he was from his journey, was sitting beside the well. It was about the sixth hour. A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said...

Son of Man and God

I was listening to At the Table with Jesus by Louie Giglio on my drive in this morning. Day 8 is about Jesus being fully human. He spoke about how Jesus is 100% man and 100% God. “I and the Father are one.”” ‭‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭30‬ ‭ “For the Son of Man came to seek and... Continue Reading →


As the kids put away their costumes, and the stores bring out their Christmas decoration and the political ads are replaced with holiday advertising, I often question “What happened to Thanksgiving?” Yet this year, I started with another question “Who am I pretending to be?” Our women’s pastor shared a lesson on Monday, which happened...

Don’t Give Opportunity

“and give no opportunity to the devil”. Ephesians‬ ‭4:27‬ ‭‬‬ I am sure I have read this passage before and certainly heard it in the context of anger. Tonight it really spoke to me from Rick Renner’s book Sparkling Gems “Don’t Give Place to the Devil”. He listed several areas where we leave a place... Continue Reading →
