God Has Not Forgotten You

God has not forgotten you!  Those are some of the sweetest words anyone who has been through severe drought and storm can hear.  Let’s really look at what God is saying to us in this verse of scripture as we pick it apart... “Blessed is the one who perseveres under...

None of Us are Born Loving God’s Sovereignty

None of us are born loving God’s Sovereignty.  We are all born loving our own sovereignty!  God uses afflictions/suffering to heal both sinner and saint, and if we don’t take hold of and really understand that all of our steps are ordered from the Lord, we will become...

What Do You Do When Hope is Gone?

Hope is a great thing, maybe the best of things. Hope is a key to the Christian life. But there’s a kind of hope I can really identify with because I know it so well… “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:...

Encourage – My Story

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. (Romans 12:15) There is a unique culture, a new medium that someone at some time for some reason named the ‘internet’. It is a new way of communicating; a place where you have a voice and your audience is the...

I Don’t Know This Chick Anymore

There are No Cheap Goods in Heaven’s Market

Always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.  2 Cor. 4: 10 Know this, my friend... God has nothing worth having that is easily gained.  Is there ever an end to the suffering?  How long, oh Lord,...

After the Locusts Have Eaten

It’s a fact, a sad fact, that all of us have times of scarcity and famine. But the flip side of these times speak of R-E-S-T-O-R-A-T-I-O-N! God says we can expect restoration, and that’s exciting. There’s one word that God has spoken over and over to me, and that is focus. Oh yes my friend, God brings both the bad and good.

The Christian Wilderness

The Christian Wilderness. How shall I start to explain this? The best way I can describe it is that you are confronted with an anti-you barrier, and in the eyes of the world you look like a loser. Limitation after limitation have been part of your life now for years, or you’ve had to endure a lifetime of restriction. What I mean

“You Try to Escape the Pain…

... yet God sees tender compassion for other sufferers finding birth in your soul."  That's great, but what about me?   Who's going to nurse my soul with tender care and consideration?  Am I just a visual aide?  A walking billboard, if you will?   I’ve been...
