The Power Of God Seen In Us
Published
He was a social outcast, dependent upon the good-will of others. Though John tells us that his parents were still living, he also tells us this man was a beggar. Either he was seeking to supplement the family income or his family had cast him out to...
So More Than One Thousand Dollars Later...
Published
Last March, I noticed that my furnace seemed to have decided it needed to take breaks when it should have been working. I gave it a good scolding, fiddled with the thermostat and it came back on. I thought it had learned it's lesson but I was...
A New Song To Sing
Published
He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:3 (NLT) December was a rough month at our house. My husband had been out of steady work for...
Let Your Light So Shine
Published
It is not unusual for the people at our church to be greeted by a rather quiet man with a friendly, gentle smile as they enter the sanctuary. He and his wife were some of the first people my husband and I met when we started attending our church. He...
The Brook Dried Up
Published
In 1 Kings 17, the Bible says that the Prophet Elijah tells King Ahab: As surely as the Lord, the God of Israel, lives - the God I serve - there will be no dew or rain during the next few years until I give the word! 1 Kings 17:1 (NLT) Then God tells...
Why Do You Believe?

The Cracked Pot
Published
Your life is very different than what you thought it would be. You never expected you would be in this place. Perhaps you had a broken dream, a broken marriage or a broken body. Perhaps you have all of these things and more. You feel just a bit like...
A Cry In The Dark
Published
I was only about four or five years old but I remember it like it happened yesterday. It was around 1965 and we were living in a house in Minneapolis that had been built at the turn of the century. Like most houses from that time period, closets in...
Rescued From The Fire
Published
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved....
To All Who Are Hurting
Published
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV) Sometimes we just experience pain for a moment, a minute, an hour, a day or perhaps even a week or a month. There are other times however, when the pain or difficult situation...
When You Feel Insignificant
Published
"I'm going into the ministry. I'm important but you... you are just a lay member, a cell in the Body of Christ." Though I think the young man who said it to me meant to say it in jest, I still remember my response to his statement...
The Other Side Of The Mask
Published
Several months ago, I wrote a blog entitled Behind Our Mask which dealt with how we often wear a mask, hiding who we really are. I wrote: God not only wants to strip away our mask; he also wants us to look through the masks of others around us. We...
A Conduit Of God's Love
Published
Conduit: someone or something that is used as a way of sending something (such as information or money) from one place or person to another Source: Merriam-Webster This morning, as I read a blog by @peoplepower entitled Romans 7&8-Relationship...
The Watered-Down Gospel
Published
"It's just fluff!" I blinked as I read those words and actually found myself recoiling just a bit. While I understood the author's desire to not substitute the gospel with a watered-down, politically-correct imposter it seemed like...
The 27th Bag
Published
I went to the second Saturday night service held at my church this evening. During the sermon a story was shared about a recent incident. Our church has several locations and a short time ago, some ladies at one of the campuses decided to make some...
The Great Journey
Published
It was a familiar message to God's people. God was calling them to come out from where they were and go on a journey to a new place. Long ago, God had called Abraham to pack up and move from the land of his fathers and go to a land that He would...
Bearing With One Another In Love
Published
Ephesians 4:2 - Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. (New International Version) I found myself cringing just a bit when I read those words just a bit ago. Why? Because I realized that just a short time before...
The Importance Of Giving
Published
Today, while I was out running errands, I was listening to the local Christian radio station. Suddenly, my attention was riveted when I learned that earlier that day, they had teamed up with a local grocery store chain in my area and had distributed...
A Clear Channel
Published
I live in the Land of 10,000 Lakes and from the time I was a child, I knew there was a big difference between fresh or "living" water and stagnant or "dead" water. I remember how my nose would wrinkle up when I would come upon a...
My Sheep Hear My Voice And I Know Them And They Follow Me
Published
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27 As I have said written before, when it comes to sheep you could probably hold all that I know about them in a thimble. Fortunately, I have friends right here at CB who know a...
A Wonderful Life
Published
One year ago today, my husband unexpectedly lost his job after more than 27 years of employment. At the same time, I was awaiting a decision in regards to my disability claim. I remember the disbelief and numbness I felt. I remember how we actually...
The Mallard Drake
Published
My father christened him "Sir Walter Drake" and he looked magnificient. In fact, he had taken a ribbon at a show sponsored by the Minnesota Ceramic Association. He was my father's favorite piece and he had a place of honor in the display...
The Shepherd And The Sheep Dog
Published
I remember the first time I ever saw a sheep dog demonstration. It was on the first Saturday in May back in 1986. My husband had been working for nearly a year at a college which had been founded by Scottish immigrants 100 years earlier. In honor of...
Where Is Our Joy?
Published
A few days ago I wrote a blog entitled Love: It's Not A Dirty Word in which I wondered why, if one talks about the love of God, it seems like there is always someone standing by ready to tell them they are watering down the Word of God. Apparently...
Give Me Springs As Well!
Published
Acsah, the daughter of Joshua was grateful. She really was. Her father, Caleb, had been kind enough to give her land. He didn't have to do that because she was a daughter rather than a son but Caleb did it anyway. There was a problem however. The...
