Experience the Glory of God

Exodus 33:18 (NKJV) And he said, “Please, show me Your Glory.” The cry of the modern day church for revival is heard by God. Many have personal opinions on the absence of the event called out for. What is God waiting on? Why doesn’t He just pour out His Glory on the Body of Christ?…

Clean My Cup, Lord

I Samuel 16:7 (NKJV) But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Early each morning, I make a cup of detox tea to sip on during my quiet time with the…

Walking in the Light

2 Peter 3:8-10 (NKJV) But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. Reading God’s Word…

Deep Penetrating

Psalm 51:6-8 (ESV) Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice. Thursday is cleaning day. I have taken to…

In Our Midst

Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV) The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. This has been a favorite passage for a long time. When our oldest son was overseas, I imagined…

Always Good

Psalm 27:13-14 (ESV) I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! God is good, therefore; I am good. This contemplation in my head today consists of every shortcoming I can think up. All my faults….

None Should Perish

John 3:16-17 (ESV) “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” It is probably the most well-known verse in the…

Oh For Grace

John 1:16 (ESV) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. I have been parenting for over 28 years now. With five children, I have experienced a variety of personalities. Each kid and relationship just a little bit different from the other. When our daughters came home from Bible study last night, our young…

Keep the Wheel Turning

Jeremiah 18:2-4 (ESV) “Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed…

God is ALWAYS Good

Psalm 145:6-10 (NLT) Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue; I will proclaim your greatness. Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness; they will sing with joy about your righteousness. The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his…
