D.O.G. – Depend on God

My devotion time was led by Hyzer this morning…our 18 oz. grand-dog who spent the night. Opening my prayer time with a plea for God to speak and untangle the chaos in my heart and mind, I immediately heard the waking whines of Hyzer. And here’s what I heard from my Father. Want to hearContinue reading “D.O.G. – Depend on God”

Can YOU hear your song?

Your song is beautiful and sounds like the fruit of the spirit. It sings with the heart of God:   A great place to begin to hear your song clearly is digging deep into the very heart of God. Knowing Him is the key to knowing yourself…and your song.  Fill out the form below forContinue reading “Can YOU hear your song?”

Blending In or Called Out?

While there’s a cry in every heart to be uniquely valued–to be loved, there’s a competing cry to blend in and not to draw attention to yourself (unless there’s something about yourself you think will give you attention you really want).  High school & college students are a great example…in any gathering of students, hair, make-upContinue reading “Blending In or Called Out?”

Tagging God isn’t (always) Aligning with God

For all of recorded time, humanity has brazenly used God’s name to affirm its choices.  Much like “tagging” a friend on Facebook, we tack God’s name on our activities, thereby implying His presence and approval.  From wars to divorces to abortion, we humans audaciously attach His Name to plans and projects His heart never conceived…evenContinue reading “Tagging God isn’t (always) Aligning with God”

Are you busy & burdened? Come.

Working.  Carrying burdens.  Struggling to keep up, to carry on.  Does it sound like a description of your life?  Does it sound like a description of a blessed life? We live in a busy world.  Our technology is a blessing and a curse.  The more we can get done, the more we feel we mustContinue reading “Are you busy & burdened? Come.”

It’s too much. We can’t do it.

“This place is a wasteland.  Send them on, Jesus.   There’s not enough here to meet our needs…let alone their needs.” Do you ever look around your world and feel like that?  The problems and the heartaches seem too big.  The resources too meager.  You’ve seen miracles…seen Jesus work but now you are tired.  That’sContinue reading “It’s too much. We can’t do it.”

Do I matter? Does anyone care?

It is the question we hate feeling:  Do I matter?  Does anyone care?  We spend much of our lives seeking activities and relationships that give us an affirmative answer.  There is only One who can answer that to our complete satisfaction.  The only One who can answer it is the One who created us. Animals areContinue reading “Do I matter? Does anyone care?”

Who am I

I have one eye that is used a lot but I cannot see.  What am I? You see me where I never was…and really can never be.  What am I? If you say my name, I disappear.  What am I? If I drink I die, if I eat I’m fine.  What am I? Riddles areContinue reading “Who am I”

Danger & Devastation: Fire Insurance

We buy fire insurance with the hope that we never need it.  In the natural realm, it works reasonably well.  Even if the policy is not that good, fire insurance works well to gives us peace of mind and even a poor policy will mitigate the devastation if a fire happens.  So, a fire insurance policyContinue reading “Danger & Devastation: Fire Insurance”
