Radical Humility & Creating Narcissists

Updated Blog6

Today I was in Philippians 2 where Paul encourages us to consider others as more important than ourselves and it made me realize how much of a struggle this is for most of us. Philippians 2:3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves. We would all agree we should put others before ourselve...

What should I do with Jesus?

Blog Images

"Meanwhile, the leading priests and elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas to be released and for Jesus to be put to death. So the governor asked again, "Which of these two do you want me to release to you?" The crowd shouted back, Barabbas! Pilate responded, "Then what should I do with Jesus who is called the Messiah?" Matthew 27:21-22 The question that Pilate as...

Frustration?

Updated Blog4

Psalm 105:19"until what he had said came to pass,the word of the LORD tested him." 2020 to say the least has been a very interesting year. I am not saying anything that you do not already know. With that in mind, Psalm 105:19 stood out to me this week. Here is why I have never had any true health issues in the past until this year. My frustration is not so much the ups a...

Post Election Posturing

Updated Blog1

We seemed to have survived another Presidential election process. Now we wait to discover the impact. Already reaction is mounting up via social media. One thing is certain; the moral compass of our country continues to drift downward, and no political scheme is going to reverse the situation. The Lord brought to my mind a remarkably simple but profound strategy to counte...

Parkinsonian Ponderings: Forgiveness Factor

Updated Blog3

One of the symptoms of Parkinson's for me is that I will occasionally waken in the middle of the night with my mind racing with ideas. It has become a routine way that the Lord speaks to me. (No, I don't hear a voice) They could also be just my vain imagination or bad pizza, I call them ponderings until I can validate them by the Word and Godly counsel. Please consider and...

The Harvest is Plentiful

Updated Blog2

I have been freshly convicted that I love my comfort more than I have realized. Our neighborhood is ripe with opportunity but as an introvert I struggle with getting out there and mixing it up. I've recently realized it's less about me being an introvert but rather that I idolize comfort. Since getting out there we've had the opportunity to point people to the only hope f...

God Himself!

Updated Blog6

I don't know about you, but I've never experienced a more tense, frustrating, confusing, and truly volatile political season before. At 60, I now have enough history to have seen a few ugly political seasons come and go. We've all previously watched some of the well-known and wealthy threaten to move to a different country if their candidate doesn't win...not new. We've he...

Find God Working Around You and Join Him

Updated Blog1

I was freshly reminded in my recent devotional time and in my preparation formy Home Church Group study on Experiencing God, of how Moses was quiteconvinced that he was unqualified for the assignment God was calling him to inExodus 3:11 4:17. God knew exactly what He was doing in His calling to Mosesto go to Pharaoh and tell him to let His people go. Moses however, did no...

Desperate for Prayer

Updated Blog2

"Ever since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your Name, he has done harm to this people and you have not delivered at all." (Ex 5:23) This is a prayer of a man who is desperate to pray. As you know God sent Moses on a mission to free the Israelites from Pharaoh's grip. God told Moses "I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel out of Egyp...

A House of Prayer for all the Nations

Updated Blog3

Mark 11:17: And he was teaching them and saying to them, "Is it not written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations'? But you have made it a den of robbers." This passage really stood out to me this morning as we talk about His House being a House of Prayer. The reason it stood out to me was the part about "FOR ALL THE NATIONS". I missed this the ...
