God Blooms where you live

GOD BLOOMS He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)  Forsythia bushes line one side of my driveway. They create a beautiful border between the road and property.  I wanted them planted so I could enjoy spring… [Read More]

What Task Have You Laid Down? TAKE IT UP

What task have you laid down? Take it up. God is encouraging you to move forward with boldness and confidence. When you experience hardship and confusion–doubt and despair are not far behind. If you are like me, you squash those “feelings” and focus on an area of immediate need. Not dwelling on the overwhelming aspects of… [Read More]

He Shall Reign Forever – A Christmas Story

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light… Isaiah 9:2 (ESV) To fully understand the story of Christmas, we have to understand the historical setting depicted in Isaiah 9.

The Trees Are Clapping

The trees are clapping. It is not a mistake. As I stroll the beautiful landscape of fall, their cheers are evident. So vibrant and robust that they are falling out of their seats! But why I ask?

How to Cultivate A Spirit Of Generosity

I’m not giving him a dime, he should get a job! Plus he smells. – Oh no, here comes Ms. Talkstoomuch. She’s so insensitive about my time constraints. – Why can’t she keep her problems and rabbit trails out of our classroom discussion? Is this generosity? We can all relate to feeling like this at one time or another. Ugly,… [Read More]

A View From The Sanctuary

When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny. Psalms 73:16-17 We all struggle with doubt from time to time. Even people with a deep and abiding faith in God. Doubts arise from circumstances, family, friends, intellectual pursuits, and of course Satan. It’s… [Read More]

Always Behind Me

Memories of Dad  resound. It’s a melody in the background of my mind that’s always playing. Sometimes a special arrangement–memory–catches my ear and I dwell there for a time. Inevitably, an immediate need of the day pushes it back. Time, in different measure for God, should render a lesson. We’ll meet again, worthy goals deserve a… [Read More]
