OUT OF THE CHAOS 1.15.2021

5Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. 7Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom.

OUT OF THE CHAOS 1.13.2021

In my consideration this week of Hagar’s interaction with the One who sees her and my subsequent delve into how God sees his people, I came across this beautiful picture of how God’s care for his people. 10In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared …

18This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit. 19Joseph, to whom she was engaged, was a righteous man and did not want to disgrace …

What now? We sit and wait. Waiting for the results of an election that does not have the power to change anything unless I am willing to be a part of that change. As I sat and pondered what to write for today, a phrase kept running through my mind: pray for peace. It’s not …

Wisdom from the Lord… This is what the Lord says: Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord. They are like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. They will live in the barren wilderness, in an uninhabited salty …

Monday morning I sat down to read for a bit and turned to the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament. Looking for a particular passage, I came across a verse I underlined in chapter 7. Unless your faith is firm, I cannot make you stand firm. Isaiah 7:9 Immediately, I recalled a ballet audition …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 07.27.2020

There is so much controversy swirling around us these days. Everywhere a person turns, someone is posting or postulating on what they do or do not like about current events. I try to stay away from the arguments. For many reasons, but mostly because it steals my joy. At times, I wonder if I will …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 07.26.2020

These are unusual times. This is not the first time there have been unusual times. Remember the wise teacher’s words in Ecclesiastes, History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before.
