The Sea Of Uncertainty
Published
We sail within a vast sphere, ever drifting in uncertainty, driven from end to end. When we think to attach ourselves to any point and to fasten to it, it wavers and leaves us; and if we follow it, it eludes our grasp, slips past us, and vanishes for...
Jesus, I Love Thee
Published
We say that we love Jesus. Do we? We are willing to follow Him when it is convenient for us. Are we willing to following Him when it is inconvenient? We are willing to following Him when the path is easy and pleasant. Are we willing to follow Him when...
Holding Up Your Arms
Published
I've been in this place before. Facing financial challenges and dealing with health issues, a repaired furnace which is still not acting right managed to break a hole in my defenses. I struggled to keep my hands raised up to God but fear and...
Keep Looking Up
Published
One of the members who attended a small group we are in is a snowboard instructor. A couple whose son is starting to try out snowboarding asked him for some tips. Here was his number one tip. Keep looking up. I've heard this advice given before in...
The Blessing Of The Card
Published
It has been a terrible week. Our furnace still isn't working quite right and we are praying we do not need a new one. My husband learned that he was not going to be paid an agreed upon amount and the check for the reduced amount is a week late....
Follow The Directions
Published
Today is my daughter-in-law's birthday. This morning, while baking her birthday cake, I was reminded of the first time I made this recipe. I had mixed up all the dry ingredients, made a well and then added all of the liquid ingredients except for...
The Story Of Our Lives
Published
Often when we think of our "testimony", we think of one of two things. We either think about the story of when we became a Christian or we think it is some exciting and miraculous event which took place in our lives. The Merriam-Webster...
The Bad Connection
Published
I had awakened early one cold morning and immediately sensed something was wrong. I knew it was very cold outside but still, it shouldn't be this cold inside. I listened for a moment and heard nothing. Uh-oh. I padded downstairs to check the...
The Lord And Vassal
Published
Since early October, a group of women from my church have been getting together every Friday morning and doing Bible study about Gideon. A few weeks ago, we talked about the terms "suzerain" and "vassal". Now while I was familiar...
The Cracked Glass
Published
After church one Sunday, the children slipped out the door and were delighted to discover the parking lot as well as the vehicles in it were covered with a thin layer of ice due to a brief shower of freezing rain. One little boy got a brilliant idea...
The Brick Wall
Published
The Princess looked about wildly. How could she have been so stupid! Although this road had looked so inviting, deep in her heart she knew that it would take her off the King's Highway. The King's Highway had seemed so rough at the moment. She...
The Parable Of The Garbage Disposal
Published
Once there was a woman who decided that it would be a good idea to clean out her refrigerator before a new form of life evolved in it. She was happily emptying containers of their mysterious-looking contents down the garbage disposal and indeed, had...
The Sword Of The Lord
Published
In the Book of Judges, we find the story of Gideon. Called by God to lead an army against their oppressors, Gideon started out with 32,000 troops. Based on information in Judges 8, it is estimated that the Midianite army had 135,000 troops so there...
What I Really Meant Was...
Published
I had to run some errands this afternoon and my husband was busy catching up on some work at home. We were both tired so we it was decided that since a local pizza place was running a great special, we would order one and I would pick it up on my way...
In Your Struggles, Remember...
Published
This morning, I sat in a roomful of women, listening to a speaker at my church. I recognized the speaker by sight and perhaps I had talked with her a bit when I have gone up for prayer but I couldn't tell you for sure. I go to a church which has...
In The Darkness Of The Storm
Published
Less than two years before I would enter the most turbulent period of my life to date, I was peacefully drifting off to sleep when suddenly it seemed to me that the room shook and I felt like my bed had suddenly been transformed into a boat. I...
The Barren Tree
Published
With the cold October winds, the trees I see when I look out the window this morning are stripped of all of their leaves. I will not see them again until late April or early May. The tree in this picture is on the west side of my house and this was...
Faithful To The End
Published
Hebrews 3:14 - For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. (New Living Translation) Sometimes we behave our life after our salvation is some sort of spectator...
Though I Am Surrounded By Troubles

Psalm 138:7 - Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me. (New Living Translation) In the dead of the night I awakened suddenly to...
A Gift From The Heart
Published
As our Bible study was ending today, one of the women mentioned the upcoming annual women's holiday dinner which is held at our church each year in early November. Women volunteer to decorate and host a table. While my decorating talents leave...
The Way We Should Live
Published
The man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” Luke 10:29 (NLT) Luke recounts the story of how a lawyer stood up one day to test Jesus. The question he asked Jesus was, "What must I do to inherit...
An Attitude Of Gratitude
Published
When I was an elementary school teacher, I used to have to sometimes take a student aside and talk to them about their attitude. A poor attitude could cause a capable student to fail. It could drive away friends. It seemed like if the day started out...
Restitution, Is It A Necessary Thing?
Published
Today, while reading a blog by @blessings2you entitled If The Shoe Fits... I began to think about restitution. It seems like we do not hear a lot of preaching about restitution in our churches today. We talk about forgiveness and we talk about grace...
The Frayed Rope
Published
Jill Briscoe tells a story about an evangelist who wanted to use a dramatic method to teach his listeners about faith. It was safe for them to fully depend on God alone. He cut a rope so that it was held together by only two or three strands believing...
Running Ahead Of God
Published
I've been re-reading The Autobiography of George Muller over the past few days. Though I have read it a number of times, an incident he wrote about really jumped out at me earlier today. It is funny how you can read something over and over again...
