Today before my granddaughter’s nap, I read a book to her based on Psalm 23. The illustrations were simple and yet profound. A small lamb carefully guarded and cared for by a shepherd, wolves lurking nearby but never able to get close, provision and rest always available. As I read to her, I imagined myself …

Taking my faith for a walk. What else does that entail besides renewing my faith in God? How about some exercise? Some spiritual exercise? Check out Philippians 4 for some ideas. Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious …

Your attention please: Easter and Holy Week is still happening! Today is commonly known as Palm Sunday, the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, greeted by worshippers waving palm branches and proclaiming him King of Israel! All four gospels record the event, each with a slightly different emphasis. Luke and John both record …

Taking our faith for a walk means we renew our hope in God and his power, sovereignty, plans and purpose. He is greater than any situation, including this one. We rehearse and remember what he has done in the past and affirm that he will do it again. And then we tell that to others. …

Last Friday evening I participated in my first ever Zoom gathering. (I wish I had developed Zoom!)

The post today is the guest perspective of my Havanese-Maltese (Havamalt) dog, Oliver. He is begging to share how social distancing impacts his life. I finally acquiesced. So, here’s Oliver! He says: The last few weeks have been so weird for me. Mr and Mrs were gone for a long time and I lived with …

Jehoshaphat was a good king, following the ways of his father, Asa. He did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight. During his reign, however, he failed to remove all the pagan shrines, and the people never fully committed themselves to follow the God of their ancestors. 2 Chronicles 20:32-33 One final thought about Jehoshaphat.

At the very moment… What does that mean to you? To me it means immediately, right now, simultaneous, follow immediately…it means at the very same time! At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves. 2 Chronicles 20:22 When …
