Shine Bright Little Light

Psalm 27:1-3 (ESV) The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against…

In The Light

Matthew 5:14-15 (ESV) “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.” There are certain people who draw the innermost thoughts of others…

In the Shadows

Psalm 91:1-2 (ESV) He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” A shadow is only possible in the presence of light. Without light there is no shadow. This may seem completely obvious to those who…

The Light

John 8:12 (ESV)  Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” In a moment, the last breath is taken and another beautiful light is gone from the earth. Reading all the posts on social media, the light that…

Shining Light

Matthew 5:14-15 (NLT) “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.” You are the light of the world….

Integrity is Transparent

Proverbs 10:9 (NLT) People with integrity walk safely, but those who follow crooked paths will be exposed. I started blogging about my time with Jesus almost a decade ago. Every single day without fail in every possible situation you can imagine, I would lug my laptop along and make it the very first thing I did every…

The Light

Luke 11:36 (NLT)  If you are filled with light, with no dark corners, then your whole life will be radiant, as though a floodlight were filling you with light.” A well-known columnist for the local paper passed away from a sudden stroke. There was no warning just here today gone the next. At an undisclosed…

Flip the Switch

James 1:16-18 (NIV) Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created. Walking through the…

Come Together

Ephesians 1:22-23 (NLT) God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself. The church. The Body of Christ. The formation…

Expose the Lie

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 (NIV)  For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we…
