Last month was such a blessing! A powerful reminder that God’s Word never runs out of fuel, never disappoints, and is living and active (Hebrews 4:12). It can never be exhausted! It is never irrelevant! It is applicable for every situation! Morning by morning throughout the month of September (September Fast, 2022), God awakened … Continue reading A Fast Completed and a Birthday Celebrated!
Lost in Logic!
It truly makes no sense that we are coming up on a year since my nephew’s diagnosis of Leukemia. What’s more is that he has already been called to his eternal home (July 14, 2022) just 6 days before his 24th birthday. And add in the unbelievable aspect that his mom went to her eternal … Continue reading Lost in Logic!
The Pool of Bethesda
My hair is a matted, unkept mess and peering into the mirror is not for the faint of heart! I am trying to remember the last time I had a shower, or even a bath! I am beginning to feel like the lame man at the pool of Bethesda (John 5). Maybe a little exaggeration … Continue reading The Pool of Bethesda
Can We Trust God with A Loved One?
We drove 19 hours straight to visit with my brother before he would have to head back to MD!

Not being Outwitted! (Day 22)
In yesterday’s post, Pushing My Panic Buttons, I shared how anxiety easily mounts into panic attacks if we are not on guard. We focused on 1 Peter 5:8 where the Apostle instructs us to be ALERT and “clear-headed.” If we are filled with anxious thoughts, fretting, worries of any kind, we will not be “clear-headed” … Continue reading Not being Outwitted! (Day 22)
Let us submit, no longer resisting! (Day 12)
Frequently, when hard times come, we instinctively raise a hand in protest. We can resist and fight. But what kind of attitude lingers? The lingering attitude of self-will usually drives us to despair! Have you considered the man God chose to bear the gospel message to the Gentiles? Once confronted by Jesus, Paul submitted, while … Continue reading Let us submit, no longer resisting! (Day 12)
“Feelers” or Facts? (Day 11)
It was interesting to learn alongside my 6-year-old grandson that a box jellyfish has 24 eyes and 15 tentacles and is the most venomous marine animal. As we watched the teacher draw tentacles on her box jellyfish, she commented they could grow to be 10 feet long or more. Sometimes it seems more hands would … Continue reading “Feelers” or Facts? (Day 11)
Trials Cultivate Trust (Day 10)
