Do you want to be more godly? Have you tried? What exactly did you do or not do? In other words, how did you approach being more godly? In the realm of Christian aspirations, being godly, or more like God, has to be near the top of the list. You’d think we might have a plan for something so important to us and to God. I have to say my approach has… Read More

  I’m always surprised by a holy moment.   It can happen anywhere, but my kitchen sink sees more than its fair share of holy moments. My own burning bush, my own miraculous catch of fish, my own walk on the water has often happened as I stood at that sink.   Any ground is holy ground when you know in your heart God is speaking to you there and then.  … Read More

Vintage DilbertJuly 21, 2011 At first I saw God as my observer, my judge, keeping track of the things I did wrong, so as to know whether I merited heaven or hell when I die. He was out there sort of like a president. I recognized his picture when I saw it, but I really didn’t know Him. But later on, when I met God,…

Daniel 12:4 (ESV) But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”     Believing and understanding prophesy changes the way we live right now. It detaches us from the passions and pursuits of this life and anchors our hearts in eternity. Here are two prophesies relating to end times that are undeniably more… Read More

Photographs help me stay connected to the people, especially the women, I meet when we travel for ministry in Ghana.                 After 14 years we have students pastoring and serving in churches spread over West Africa. Village life is vastly different from the way we live here in the US.  The photos remind me of the every day work involved in just preparing a meal.  Carrying… Read More

  This morning I’ve been praying over hand written prayer requests I carried home from women I met in African towns and villages. Prayers for healing, for conception, for a husband’s salvation, for peace from tormenting dreams, for a child who has wandered far from God. Prayers for peace in the family, for provision, and for a husband to allow her to attend church. These are the the things they thought in… Read More

If you’re a Christian you’ll enjoy Professor John’s thoughts on God. If you don’t believe in God I’d like to urge you to give an hour of your time and just listen to a thoughtful educated man discuss why he believes in God as a Person not simply a force.

I’m going to tell you a story about the day I almost missed something amazing because I was looking for something ordinary.     It was feeble and LAME, and if it hadn’t been for my husband’s intervention, I’d have come home full of regret, kicking myself for being so stupid and short-sighted. We had travelled to Europe for some Pastor’s Conferences and were staying in Austria. An opportunity to go to… Read More

We live on a Golf Course and tonight they invited members to bring any leftover Fireworks and add to the Club’s planned display.   We walked out across the very dark course toward the Driving Range where the show was in progress. I took my camera, but had failed to check the setting or take a flashlight. As it happened, my Nikon was set on the action feature. I think I’d been… Read More
