Comfort From The Word Of God
Published
So often, in the middle of the storm which is raging all around us, we are suddenly aware that God is right there beside us. Oh yes, we may have known that with our head. We can say things like, "God is always with me." and yet, if we're...
My God turns my darkness into light.
Published
Life was good. I felt strong. I'd been battered but I was still upright. I felt hopeful. I was waiting in anticipation of what would happen next. I even felt joyful because I knew I was in his hand. 1 I love you, O LORD, my strength. 2 The LORD is...
Give And It Shall Be Given Unto You
Published
The church we started to attend a little over a year ago, is a giving church. This was one of the things which attracted us to them when we moved into the community and were looking for a new church home. In the time that we've been there,...
His Eye Is On The Sparrow
Published
If we take the time to look back upon our lives, we can see the hand of God everywhere. I was thinking about this today after returning from a bi-monthly get-together with my "Sparrow Sisters". Early last September, I was looking at the...
Remember...We're In This Together
Published
The Israelites, after much complaining (they're so like us sometimes), had partaken of bread from heaven (manna) and had their thirst satisfied by water which God had provided from out of a rock. Their next adventure is pretty predictable....
Cancer-An Object Lesson On Sin
Published
Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the similarities between cancer and sin. I have a tendancy to look at situations in my physical life and apply them to my spiritual life and vice versa. I've done the same thing since my diagnosis back...
The Very First Time
Published
My thoughts are drifting back to when I was a young (or at least younger) :) wife and mother. It was one of those rare times when I was home alone. As the twilight fell, darkness seemed to fall upon my soul as well. From out of no where, the...
Nothing Between
Published
I stayed at school tonight until around 7:00 tonight trying to catch up on paperwork from the two weeks I was out as well as doing some lesson planning for the sub I'm having on Friday. As I was driving home in the frigid winter night (and I mean...
The Word Of God...In Your Own Language
Published
This morning, I was reading an account of a young man who was presented with a Bible which had recently been translated into his own language. Spanish was his second language. He had read the Bible in Spanish, but this was different. He gently spoke...
Remember Who You Are
Published
Over the past couple of months, I've come to understand more fully the importance of remembering who you are. As Christians, who exactly are we? The Bible tells us 4 But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under...
Following God...An Attitude Check
Published
I got to thinking about the different sort of paths God leads us on. Sometimes we are actually walking on a smooth, pleasant path...for awhile. The birds are singing, flowers are blooming and there are nice shade trees to protect us from the sun....
The Prayers Of The Righteous Impact The Future
Published
The year was 1909. A five year old boy stood on the station platform in a town in central Iowa. The year before, the boy, his older sister and his parents had been living in upstate New York. An unknown tragedy struck the family. All that is known is...
All That I Have Is Yours
Published
It's a very familiar story. Anyone who ever attended Sunday School is probably quite familiar with it. The story takes place on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Living in Minnesota, I'm very familiar with how well sound carries when...
Choose To Rejoice In The Day God Has Made
Published
When I was in college, my psychology professor started out each class with Psalm 118:24: This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24 She was teaching us that while we might not be able to control what...
What Have You Taught Your Spouse About God?
Published
This weekend will mark the 29th anniversary of the first date of my husband and I. We had met on campus nearly six months earlier and it definitely was not love at first sight. It was much closer to hate at first sight. I thought he was an obnoxious...
My Cup Runneth Over!
Published
This blog was written on 2/12/08. It was written 13 days after my lumpectomy and 17 days before I had my first chemo infusion. Since I do mention a tumor in this blog as well as upcoming chemotherapy, I wanted to post this message so that anyone...
The $2.00 Bill--A Lesson In Giving
Published
The grizzled-looking elderly man slowly and painfully shuffled up to my...
Do All In The Name of The Lord Jesus
Published
I've been reading the book of Colossians. Today I was reading the third chapter which gives guidelines for holy living. While the entire chapter is excellent (of course), verse 17 really jumped out at me: I started really thinking about this. What...
The Chocolate Pot And The Gift Of Friendship
Published
Right after Christmas, my husband and I received an invitation to a "Twelve Days Of Christmas Party". I'd never heard of that but we learned that a couple we met last summer does this every year. They invite family, neighbors, co-workers...
Who Are You Surrounded By?
Published
The king of Syria had a big problem. He would meet with his counselors and carefully plan out his attack against Israel. Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, "I will set up my camp in such and...
Great Is The Faithfulness Of The Lord!
Published
Since I'm still recovering from surgery and my physical activity is still somewhat limited (yes, my husband is still waiting on me hand and foot) I've been spending a lot more time on my computer. I've been frequenting some of the various...
Never Forget...The Greatest Of These Is Love
Published
Something has been lying heavy upon my heart lately as I've been reading various blogs. Especially today. It is so easy to misconstrue what a person has written. You can't hear the tone of their voice, you don't see the expression on their...
When I Am Weak, Then I Am Strong!
Published
I awoke this morning thinking about Gideon of all people. The children of Israel had turned from God and they were now suffering the consequences. The Midianites would descend upon them like locust and leave the people with nothing. I remember reading...
For You Alone, Oh Lord, Will Keep Me Safe
Published
Today was the closest thing to a normal day I've had in the past week. With the return to a bit more normal life, the cares...and fears of this life begin to try to settle down upon me again. As I prepare for post-surgery appointments, treatment...
Let God Do The Talking...
Published
Far too often, we hurt each other. Often, it's not intentional. Sometimes, however, it is done maliciously. So much damage has been done because brothers and sisters in Christ get their feelings hurt, hold grudges or just don't get along in...
