The True Normal Life

His presence is ever near. We are so easily deceived when we feel we have some private place set apart from God.

Shhhhh!

Trying to come out from underneath the negative onslaught, knowing truth is within and is trying to be heard amongst the din.

Jack In The Pulpit

Shall we tell how he preached it
And what was his text?

Grown-up folks who play
At worship in churches
Man-builded today,
We heard not the preacher
Expound or discuss;
But we looked at the people,
And they looked at us.

As we ascribe value to our God by sacrificing our time, attention, concentration, and praise to Him, we are in turn strengthened with the confidence and full assurance of His power and His working in our life.

A Tender Reminder

Impressions are made in the small parts of our day. It is not in grand spaces of time with large noticeable stamps that these engravings are formed.

Is It Real To You?

Like a child letting go of her father’s hand while perched upon the balance beam, there is that exciting, fearful, anticipatory feeling knowing all must be well because my father stands so near, yet knowing that my feeble legs must take that first step, knowing all too well the paralyzing nature of fear.

The Visit

“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”

In Praise of Work

In this culture it seems that the goal of work is the rest that follows. The quest of the typical working soul seems to exert the least amount of energy to reach the point as quickly as he can to where he can cease from labor and begin to enjoy his day.
