He calms the storm

So when I saw this particular picture I saved it. I find it captivating. As I reflect on this image again this morning many thoughts come to mind. Good and evil. Right side, wrong side. Battle. Narrow way. Destruction vs restoration. But I am landing here on “Love is patient,” 1 Corinthians 13:4. It was […]

Unfailing Comfort

“A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of the joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, […]


“Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends…” John 15:13 As a nation today we remember all of those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. What words can I place here that would encompass the rippling depth of this day and life […]

“Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 27:3-4 So I was just reading my Bible and went to my devotional list and noticed I started one entitled “Prayers for Ferocious Warriors.” […]

Riches of Prayer

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you, When you walk through fire, you will not be burned, the flame will not set […]

Lift Your Head Up

“and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 This a great verse but what about when you are in a moment where you can not receive the cheering on. “In all things” takes us to stretch. […]

Precious Shine

“Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.” Isaiah 43:4 Precious defined as of great value, not to be wasted or treated carelessly. And that refers to you sweet reader. You are precious!  Take hold […]

Become a God-Finder

“We may ignore, but we cannot evade the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.” CS Lewis Beautiful day! Perfect weather for a walk in the woods.
