    Looking Forward

    In my last Blog, Looking Back, I shared how we can look back as we recall what the Lord has done for us in the past. Through looking back at these “Memorial Stones” we are reminded of the marvelous works that He has done, and this encourages us that He can do it again. In […]

    Looking Back

    It seems wrong to even say, “Looking Back!” After all, we are generally instructed to look ahead. There are three instances where we are taught in the Bible not to look back. In spite of these warnings, looking back has some advantages. Here are the three warnings: # 1. Luke 17:32 Remember Lot's wife. Remember […]

    How Beautiful are the Feet – Part IV

    I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise. So, as much as is in me, (2) I am ready to preach the Gospel to you who are in Rome also. For (3) I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

  • How Beautiful are the Feet! – Part I

    How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who […]

  • Don’t Hit Snooze!

    I seldom need an alarm clock to wake me up. I have been graced with an internal alarm clock and typically wake up at whatever time I set my body-clock. I travel over forty weeks a year and will try to be on the first flight out in the morning, so far I have not […]

  • Be Light

    Jesus said that He was the light of the world. His light is indistinguishable, regardless of how dark the world is, the light is more powerful. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. […]

  • Stay The Course

    “Stay the Course” this is a phrase used in the context of war or battle meaning to pursue a goal regardless of any obstacles or criticism. (Wikipedia) The opposite of this phrase is “Cut and run!” (Cowardly withdrawal in battle). The analogy of a ship sailing in the storm and staying on course is a […]

  • Plugged In

    I am quite into using my technology. ‘Quite,’ is an understatement, I am a borderline geek, except ‘geek’ is not very self-complimentary. It means a socially inept person or one who engages in computer-related tasks obsessively or with attention to technical detail. Let’s put it this way, when I plug all my iPhones, iPad, iWatch, […]
