Nice Try, World!

Word of the Day

"The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid?" (Psalm 27:1) Today caught me a little off guard. I was going along all happy and such because next week is Christmas! (BTW - I'm still happy). At work though, I felt like the enemy was trying to derail me at every turn. Trying to get me to react...

Guard Yourself!

Armor of God

Are you busy this time of year? LOL It is the night of December 17th as I write this and time is rushing towards one week from now, Christmas Eve. Some of you might be in a crazy mode by now; gifts still to buy, cookies to bake, family gatherings, parties... Oh no! I haven't even started the Christmas Cards. This is the time when you start to cheat things like your praye...

Mary DID know!

Word of the Day

"And Mary said: My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for the Mighty One has done great things for me - Holy is His name." (Luke 1:46-47, 49) Try to picture Mary's situation in today's terms or your life directly. We are really busy living moment by moment; kids to school, kids to practice, appointments, work duties, social engagements, house...

Do Not Fear

Word of the Day

I am really learning to appreciate Isaiah as I mature as a follower of Christ. There is so much wisdom found there that is applicable to our lives even today. I remember being a child, a new believer, even a young man but not much of a follower and discounting the Old Testament as, well, Old. I couldn't see that it was full of Christ. I recently had a "close call" at work...

The Power of the Tongue

Word of the Day

Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. My favorite description of Jesus is that he was "full of grace and truth." Why is it so difficult for me to deliver truth and lack so much grace. Foot in mouth tends to be one of my biggest diseases. Lord, I beg you to fill me with your Holy Spirit and cause the words...

It is His Glory to Overlook an Offense

Word of the Day

As I was desperate to hear from Him this morning this is what he said: Proverbs 18:11-13 11 Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense. 12 A king's wrath is like the growling of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. 13 A foolish son is ruin to his father, and a wife's quarreling is a continual dripping of rain. Lat...

"I Hold You in My Heart"

Clean Heart

I got about ten minutes into my day this morning when a really scary, and sadly, all too common thought hit my mind. Every thought I had up to that point was only about me. I hadn't thought about my wife, or my kids, and even though I was about to open up my Bible, I hadn't considered God either. My mind was already consumed with how every situation in the day was going to...

For Such a Time as This

Walk with Jesus

This morning I read Chapter 4 of Esther. The book is interesting because God is not mentioned once in the book, yet His presence and sovereignty is seen all throughout. You know the story. Mordecai, a Jewish exile, ticks off a man named Haman who is high in the King's court. Haman really doesn't like Mordecai or the Jews and enacts a dastardly plot to have all of them kill...

First Things First

LoveGodLoveOthers

"To love you as I should, I must worship God as Creator. When I have learnt to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all. When first things are ...

It's in There!

LoveGodLoveOthers

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.Philippians 2:3-4 So much easier said then done, this verse. Last night I was taking my son to the first soccer practice of the season and we were talking about his team, who might be on it...
