Matthew 16:25 MSG
Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is...Read Full Post »

Easter approaches on swift wings of time; and as we celebrate this beautiful season, prayers of love and thanksgiving are offered to Jesus, the Son of God, who gave up His divine heritage to become fully human. Why would He do this? He knew His end before He began living this choice, and it meant separation from His Father and a painful death. So why?
There is but one reason: God’s love for us required...Read Full Post »

Luke 2:6-14 (AMP)
While they were there [in Bethlehem], the time came for her to give birth, 7 and she gave birth to her Son, her firstborn; and she wrapped Him in [swaddling] cloths and laid Him in a manger, because there was no [private] room for them in the inn.Read Full Post »

Sometimes, my friends, I find myself overwhelmed by the awareness of how much God loves me. He showed me how He incorporated His plan of salvation in the human body in the Laminin protein molecule (which I blogged about recently: "WOW"). That was exciting to have a small part of His creation revealed to me. Then as I was reading John 15 yesterday, His love for me and for you poured ou...Read Full Post »

Lord, many of us want to live our lives for You. In these end time days, the enemy is working mightily, sending out his demon forces to lie and try to decisive us. We ask for Your wisdom to recognize his deceptions, and as Jesus’ ambassadors to use His authority to defeat the enemy’s every attack, and evict any demon that tries to come against us.

You know, God tells us "if we seek Him, we will find Him”. And that is so true. As a child, my mother taught me about God and reverencing Him. She taught by example and by words. As an adult, I found that since I set out to truly know God, He has been teaching me. First it was about Father God, and we developed a close relationship. He was the One I “knew” as a child. But when i ...Read Full Post »

How many times can I say “God is good?” I know, but He is so good!! The kids threw a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for us yesterday. It was awesome! There were about 70 friends there who we’ve had over the 50 years. So many memories! So many connections! It was a true joy to be surrounded by them all in one room to celebrate with us.!

Each morning I open my eyes early so I have time to spend with my Lord before the busy day begins. This morning~
“Thank You for wakening me, and for the good night’s sleep, Holy Spirit. Still trying to climb up through the haze though. If I don’t move I’ll just sit here in a stupor; a cup of coffee will help. Then please Lord, help me hear You, as I bow down befor...Read Full Post »

Peace and joy. Wonderful time together with family Sunday at our Easter celebration! I love being together with our family.
With the rush of holiday prep now past, my mind returns to the events of Jesus' life~ thinking of Jesus and His family and friends. How sad and hurting they must have been after watching Jesus be tortured and then hung on a cross to die! How ...Read Full Post »

After all these years of living, more and more concepts are being planted deeper in my spirit. Withdrawing into quiet time and introspection with the Lord, my mind puzzles out some of the enigmatic truths in God’s Word. Today I am sinking into God’s mercy and grace and how my life is touched by it.
Because of Adam’s treason, we are all born with a sin nature, but ...Read Full Post »

Such a special week! We celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. We lift Him up and honor Him. Angels sang at His birth and a great star shone upon Him drawing wise men from the east, who could read signs in the heavens and knew an amazing event had occurred. Two thousand years later we still honor His birth, because of Who He is and what He did.
Jesus, the Son of God, second ...Read Full Post »

Jesus went to prayer daily spending time with His Father. They were so close that the worst part of Jesus’ crucifixion was when the Father had to separate Himself from His Son, because the sin of the world had come upon Jesus. What an agony of shock for Jesus who shouted out, “My God! My God! Why have You forsaken Me?”Read Full Post »

Did you see it? Of all the arrogance and the blunt attack against God, a newspaper has excelled, and aren’t they proud of themselves? They remind me of a 3 year old that has just gotten away with hitting his baby brother thinking he won’t get punished.

In this season celebrating the birth of Jesus, God’s own Son, born upon the earth as a human baby, I am drawn to childhood memories of our family’s Christmas celebrations. They were a time of excitement and love and happiness. Love seemed a spirit that floated through the air permeating every taste, smell, word, and touch. On Christmas Eve songs colored the atmosphere with a sweet love ...Read Full Post »

Walking through the woods at night, the darkness is cut by the beam of a flashlight~ Jesus light is like that. There is a moon seen through the branches above, but it’s light is scattered and ineffective in following the path. We come to a clearing of sorts.
An almost full moon gives light to a field dotted with rock formations. We climb up one rock and find shapes comfortable for sitting. Jesus sits on ...Read Full Post »

“Come walk with me, Mary, along the shores of the great sea," bid Jesus.
I readily accept His invitation. The wet sand is hard, yet our feet make slight indentations in it. . . until the waves come ashore and scrape them from the sand . . . and they're gone.
"Look behind you Mary; what do you see?"Read Full Post »

“Free!” The magic word, aye? I’d been wanting a new refrigerator, and on garage sale day there stood this pretty refrigerator with a “FREE” sign on it. Greed kicked in. I must have it! Quick before anyone else gets it! We scrambled to bring it across the drive to our patio. We got a new refrigerator! Yea! Thanks God!
In the back hidden down in my spirit was this niggling critter laugh...Read Full Post »

At the ability to speak, but one day my father observed her leaving the house, and he decided to follow to see where she was going. Across from their house was a grassy area bordered on the far side by a high wooden fence. My Mom walked across the grass to the fence. There she stopped and put up her hand as though touching something on the wood. Her head bowed, then soon she took several ste...Read Full Post »
