“If the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His wonderful deeds that our fathers recounted to us?” – the question of Gideon in Judges 6:13 Some of you have been wondering the same thing as Gideon. Praise has felt hollow. Prayer has become wearisome. The…

Sometimes you come across a bible verse or two that seemingly holds nothing of importance to you in the moment. Sometimes the Holy Spirit nudges you to go back and read it again.  Sometimes, when you read it the second or third time, you discover a little treasure that you had previously missed.  That’s what happened to…

“God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world – what is viewed as nothing – to bring to nothing what is viewed as something, so that no one may boast in his presence. It is from him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom from God for us-our righteousness, sanctification,…

Hi, friends. It has been a while since I have personally posted here because, well, frankly, life has been happily boring these days during my ministry sabbatical.

Weakened? Forgotten? Seeking to move on from a personal fumble? Exhausted with life, people, barriers and breakdowns? I have earned a Masters Degree in those areas. More than once in my life, I have needed the help of God in my season of spiritual suffocation. “We do not have a high priest who is unable…

“Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance… more than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom…

With so many of us sequestered away from what once constituted our normal lives, I would like to share something that the Father has been speaking to me about in my own life.

Nobody ruins my day.  Nobody steals my hope. Nobody makes me angry. Nobody robs me of joy.  As a matter of fact I am fully capable of doing all of that on my own, and would like to step up and say that when my day is ruined, when I am afraid or angry, or…

figuring it out as I go

You woke up with something motivating you today. We rarely pause to consider it deeply, but something drives us.  It is an intangible, invisible force pulsing somewhere inside of you and it facilitates how you are living out your life. Even the demotivated, the unstirred, apathetic and lazy person is motivated – these people are…

For those who follow Jesus wherever He wisely chooses to lead, there will be seasons in the shadowed valley. Not every measured time period in our lives will be lived out atop the mountain of victory. Part of our call to faith-filled lives of trust and obedience in Jesus require that we are piercingly tested…
