Walk with Jesus

"David inquired again of God, and God said to him, “You shall not go up after them; circle around behind them and come at them in front of the balsam trees. It shall be when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, then you shall go out to battle, for God will have gone out before you to strike the army of the Philistines.” 1 Chronicles 1...

“Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way, He leads the humble in justice, He teaches the humble His way.” Psalm 25:8-9 It was so easy to quickly read these words this morning during my time with the Lord. However, reading it again, I was particularly impressed by the words “instructs… leads… teaches.” I...

Mt. Horeb

Armor of God

This is my last post as my week has come to an end, so I have one last cheating post that my uncle really wrote. He has wrote so many posts as God has been guiding/teaching/leading him through this painful process. The following post he actually wrote Saturday morning (25th) almost 5 weeks after his wife of over 25 years "got lucky" as he puts it. Last night climbed Mt ...

Trudging

Walk with Jesus

The following post was written by my Uncle about a month after his wife Connie passed away. Maybe the toughest day yet. When things are normal I am usually out of whack from a trip(Going to see his son graduate college in Colorado) like that and right now everything is magnified by 25 times. Emotions were in my throat all day ready to bust out at any moment. Got home fr...

So We Might Share in His Holiness

Word of the Day

Hey I told you the first day I was gonna be cheating, I really feel that what my Uncle is going through many have gone through or know someone who is going through this and what God is teaching him in the middle of the storm is pricesless. The following was written about 20 days after his wife Connie passed away. So last night started clearing out Connie's clothes from ...

Perfect Peace

Word of the Day

My Uncle started writing just as a mass way of keeping those close to him informed of how he was doing but quickly began to realize it was an opportunity for the Gospel. Most of his extended family including his brother, sister, and parents are all not followers of Christ and when he sits down and talks about Spiritual things with them they would quickly change the subject...

God's Grace Like Job

Walk with Jesus

So this week is my week for the blog and I think I might cheat a little. About a month ago my aunt, who loved the Lord, passed away at the young age of 51. As my Uncle and their 3 sons (19, 22, 25) are dealing with their loss my Uncle has began to chronicle his thoughts, emotions, and what God has been teaching him through all of this. So this week you will be getting to r...

Word of the Day: 2 Samuel 23:5

Word of the Day

“For does not my house stand so with God?For he has made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all thingsand secure. For will he not cause to prosper all my help and my desire?2 Samuel 23:5 Exactly 1 year ago, the Lord used this verse to speak clearly to me about a ministry situation that I was wrestling through. Through some "intense fellowship" with my wife,...

Persuasive and Gracious Words... Lord Help Me

Walk with Jesus

The heart of the wise makes his speech judicious and adds persuasiveness to his lips. Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. Proverbs 16:23-24 This morning I woke up from a dream where I was reminded a situation of over 10 years ago that reallysparked some anger in me. It was an old wound that was all but forgotten, but the dre...

May You Increase!

Word of the Day

Now Joab fought against Rabbah of the Ammonites and took the royal city. 27 And Joab sent messengers to David and said, “I have fought against Rabbah; moreover, I have taken the city of waters. 28 Now then gather the rest of the people together and encamp against the city and take it, lest I take the city and it be called by my name.”2 Samuel 12:26-28 When I c...

The Greatest Among You...

Pray

Luke 22 After three years of an unbelievable ministry full of miraculous healings, silencing his opponents strongest arguments, speaking transformational truths and often with masses of people following after him, Jesus concludes his ministry before the crucifixion with something I find shocking. These last words he speaks to his disciples are profoundly simple. Anyone ca...

The Far Reach of Subtle Sins

Pray

1 Kings 12-13 The reign of Solomon is marked to this day by God's amazing grace in wisdom, prosperity and peace. In the background of all this prosperity though we can see, even from the very beginning a subtle root of sin taking hold. Back, at the very beginning of Solomon's reign we see him make an extremely wise political move when he marries the daughter of Pharaoh Ki...

The Prosperous King

Armor of God

1 Kings 10-11 It is very easy to get caught-up in political parties and our favorite politicians who of-course have the right point-of-view. And if our party or politician was just in control, life would be better. Well, after reading about Israel during the reign of Solomon, I sure wish I could vote for him. Solomon, the wisest ruler to have ever lived. So wise, that he ...
