Son Rise

31st March 2013 | 0 Comments

Shadows and darkness, Clouds all around, Sorrow and sadness, Dew on the ground. Then a tiny ray of hope, The sun sheds its first light, The stone has been moved, What a glorious sight! The Son in His glory, Shimmering bright, He’s conquered death, And ended sin’s night. Rays of light sparkle, Shadows are lined, […]

A Prayer from God’s Word

28th March 2013 | 0 Comments

Recently God has been challenging me to pray Scripture, especially in regard to my wondering heart and my need for His constant cleansing. Three verses really struck me as powerful prayers and I have been talking them over with God. One is the much quoted verse from Psalm 139, “Search me O, God, and know […]

The Crown

26th March 2013 | 0 Comments

During this Holy Week, I have been meditating on the Savior’s sacrifice for us.  On the cover of The Story video is a beautiful picture of a kingly crown with a crown of thorns reflected beneath it. This picture has given me much food for thought and the poem below is one of my meditations. […]

The Value of Emotions

22nd March 2013 | 2 Comments

So what is the deal with our emotions? What are their intended purpose? And wouldn’t we simply be better off without them.?  After all, our emotions seem to get us into heaps of trouble. Watchman Nee, a godly follower of Jesus,  claims that “He who lives by emotions lives without principle.” So living with our […]

Love Covers a Multitude of Sins

21st March 2013 | 3 Comments

I have often pondered exactly what 1 Peter 4:8 means, when it claims, “Love covers a multitude in sins.” It almost sounds like enabling. As if when we love someone we’ll ignore their sins or excuse them away. But I know that can’t be what it is saying. To ignore someones sins may keep the […]

What Brings You Joy

13th March 2013 | 1 Comment

On Saturday Roman was invited to a birthday party for one of his friends from school. She just lives about 6 blocks away from us so I decided we should walk. We headed out, warmly bundled, meandering down the sidewalk together. Roman, now five, didn’t really want me to hold his hand. But I love […]

Just Enough

12th March 2013 | 0 Comments

I don’t know how many of you try the new diet fads that seem to sweep through our culture with abundant regularity. I usually ignore them for a couple reasons. One reason is that I have never been very successful at dieting. Don’t get me wrong. I can go for weeks following the details of […]

The Exchange

10th March 2013 | 5 Comments

I wrote this poem as a reflection on Ezekiel 36:26. In my study of the Spirit and his constant work in our lives as believers, I’ve been really challenged and encouraged with the understanding that our hearts which were once so impervious to the things of the Spirit, are now malleable in His hands. As […]
