I wasn’t sure what to title this post, but allow me to ramble about the topic of purpose. God made us to have purpose in this life and in the life to come. So it’s natural for us all to desire purpose. Everyone wants to be needed and feel like they are contributing in their… Continue reading Talking about purpose…
I have run across many people asking about who Jesus is and I wanted to write out the core of the gospel! Jesus – all that He is is hard to contain in just our human language. He is God – the Son in the trinity of Father, Son, and Spirit. He came to fulfill… Continue reading Tell me about Jesus
I’ve been reading through the book of Luke and what I find amazing is how little the disciples understood Jesus. They believed He was sent from God, was the Messiah, the Christ, the Son of God, but each time Jesus spoke to them about going to the cross, dying and rising again, they always missed… Continue reading Who understands?
“Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Do not add to His words lest He reprove you, and you be proved a liar.” Proverbs 30:5-6 One can read these two verses and come away with some fear. Does it provoke that type of response in you? It… Continue reading How God’s Word is tested
There is one instance when Jesus asked His disciples for comfort, for friendship, and for support. It’s found in Matthew 26, Luke 22 and Mark 14. I’ve included all 3 accounts so that you can read it all in one place. I could write all day about the significance of this event just before Jesus… Continue reading In the time of your deepest feelings…Jesus knows how you feel.

About every 50 ft., imbedded in the white stripe at the edge of the road – between the shoulder and where our cars are supposed to be – were new kinds of rumble strips. Not the kind you feel when you are on… Continue reading Need guidance? God’s Rumble Strips
Isaiah 41:10 “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Whenever I consider these words a memory arises: When I was 4 or 5 I… Continue reading Is God there when I am afraid?
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me…”Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified” takes me to Romans 6 where Paul explains how we are baptized into the death of Christ, united with Christ in the likeness of His death, therefore our old nature was crucified… Continue reading All Jesus did for us on the cross
Do you feel that God is close to you? Do you ever feel as if He is so far away He can’t possibly know what you are going through today? I believer all of us can answer both questions yes and no depending on what’s going on in our lives, rather than dependent on what… Continue reading How close is God to us?
Welcome to a collection of meditations on various Scriptures. The illustrations with the text are abstract in nature because we often tend to see God’s work in our lives as abstract and yet, to God it is in perfect step with what He is doing. The Holy Spirit ‘seems’ to work in an abstract way… Continue reading Living Words: An Artistic Conversation
