The Adversity of Change

The Adversity of Change

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9 Reveal Your heart to me, O Lord, that I may see You everyday in everything and in every way. Hold me close encircle me with Your presence that I might stand against all evil. God’s ways are not our ways and God’s thoughts are not our thoughts. So when we face a decision that impacts our life in a major way, we must remember to make the decision in the framework of prayer. Prayer becomes the focus of whether we go or we don’t go. Whether we do or don’t do. Whether we speak or don’t speak. Prayer can lead us on the path we think we should be going on; or, it could point us to a detour.

Just a Whisper

Just a Whisper

There is a hush. A calm. Swish, swish, swish. A gentle breeze floating across the water. Minutes ago a storm raged billowing the sea. Tumultuous waves bore down upon the boat causing it to careen dangerously to the side. The men on the boat clung to whatever they could get their hands on in their frightened state. Could this be the end of their lives? Will they survive?

The Call of Thunder

The Call of Thunder

It started low. Off in the distance. The bass line to a symphony in minor keys. Mournfully winds began to sing the opening lyrics. Time slowed down. The rumble got louder. A flash across the sky. Earth, inhales God’s breath exhales His voice speaking His words setting poetry within the soul. God in all of His majesty, in all of His authority, is commanding me through the orchestra of His creation to give Him attention and to praise Him even in the midst of the storm.

Quiet Relief

Quiet Relief

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2 What do I say? What do I write you haven’t heard before? What words would make you open this email instead of that one? What emotions can I relay causing your heart to beat a little faster, a little harder, and tears to come? Forsaken is a word that comes to mind. Abandoned. Disappointed. Broken. Depths of despair. But not hopeless. Never hopeless. Because when hopeless enters the room that is when it is time to pack our bags and go...

Lord, I’m Coming

Lord, I’m Coming

It’s Sunday morning and instead of being in a pew I’m curled up in the corner of the couch staring at the ceiling. Events from early morning keeping me up later than I normally would be, I completely forgot to set my alarm. Waking up just minutes before I’d need to leave for church. So I’m all curled up in the corner of the couch staring at the ceiling my thoughts circling like the swirling pattern etched up there. You bid me come sit at Your table feast from Your hand lay down in green pastures linger beside Your still waters and rest.

Fractured But Not Broken

Fractured But Not Broken

My daughter asked me what a stress fracture is. I told her it’s like a crack in the ground. It starts out small, but over time it gets bigger and widens until it suddenly breaks open becoming a hole in the ground. In order to keep my foot from breaking further, I am wearing an orthopedic boot. This boot fits snuggly, keeping my foot from bending, giving me security to walk. How do we walk securely with God? What keeps us from completely breaking apart when we feel so fractured?
