When We Meet The Master … Will We Follow Him?

  “When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.” “Master,” Simon replied, “we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if You say so, I’ll let the nets down again.” (Luke 5:4-5) There has […]

He Has Been There Beside Us Through It All …

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.  Though he should fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His right hand. I have been young and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken …” (Psalm […]

“I See You …”

“Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, ‘Have I also here seen Him who sees me?’” (Genesis 16:13, NKJV) It is not always comforting to know that someone sees you. When I enlisted in the Air Force back in the late 1960’s I was sent to […]

Whose Hand Are You Holding On To?

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” (I Peter 5:7)  It never fails to bring a smile to my face when I see it unfold before me. It never gets old to see the […]

“To the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Ephesians 3:10-11) The wonder of the church is not that we are a perfect people, but […]

When Oft We Come Together …

“Walk prudently (guard your steps, ESV) when you go to the house of God; and draw near to hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil … but fear God.” (Ecclesiastes 5:1-7) King Solomon was the wisest of the wise. “Behold, I have done according […]

“Who Am I, O Lord God … That You Have Brought Me This Far?”

“Then King David went in and sat before the Lord; and he said: “Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that You have brought me this far?” (2 Samuel 7:18) It’s those moments in time … you know what I’m talking about.  Those rare moments to yourself … moments to just […]

We Could Sure Use A Few Rainbows …

“And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations; I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.” (Genesis 9:12-13)  Taking care of […]

How Could They Do That?

“But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:3) As the curtain draws at the end of Genesis 2 … the universe was just as God had intended for it to be! Adam and Eve, […]

“Cords of Kindness … Bands of Love”

“I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love, And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck.  I stooped and fed them.” (Hosea 11:4) I used to think that as we grew older, we might be able to slow down. I have concluded that this line of thought […]
