Are We Getting the Message?

Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message. Malcolm Muggeridge When God speaks Sometimes when you sense a special moment you gotta stop and get out of the car! Driving home one late afternoon I saw a huge gathering of…

In My Father’s House Are Many Mansions

  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and…

A Love That Endures

  We forgot to take a padlock to Paris!   TripAdvisor never said a word about it.  Ditto Rick Steves.  Same for Fodor’s France. I don’t know when this became a thing, but the bridges in Paris are slowly being overtaken by padlocks. The newest symbol of a couple’s enduring love.  Seeing all that gleaming…

Experience The Beauty And Peace Of Resting In The Lord

Ever gone to make a call and found your cell battery has died?   It’s happened to me several times. Murphy’s Law dictates that I never have a charger cord with me when I absolutely need it most. That never happens to us as believers. The Holy Spirit is always there, the paraclete, the Comforter…

Worried What Others Think Of You? Get Yourself Free Of That Trap!!!

  You have two options in life:  March to the beat of your own drum or NOT.   For a country obsessed with ‘selfies’ we are a people terrified of being ourselves. What if my friends don’t like my hair, my shoes, my furniture? Easy, get new friends. We’re constantly fluctuating between finding ourselves and…

Praying For Fruit

This morning we are on our way for 9 weeks of ministry in Ghana. We’re asking that God make it fruitful. We can’t wait to see our friends there. I feel like I know a little of what Paul felt when he was away from the believers he had shared so much with. We miss…
