No One Lives Forever

No One Lives Forever

During my Bible study this morning I meditated on Hebrews 9:27 “Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.” “No one lives forever,” I said aloud, “at some point everyone will die and leave this earth.” Then I thought, “Um Enoch and Elijah didn’t die”. I pondered that reflection…But they […]

Christ Is the Answer

Christ Is the Answer

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”———————————————–Acts 4:12 (NKJV) “Christ is the answer” sounds like a cliche or a cop-out; and the phrase might be both; BUT it is also a true and proven statement. There are millions […]

Strength in Humility

Strength in Humility

While eating breakfast one morning I thought about my son not liking confrontations; then recalled that I don’t like to argue either. I pondered the thought for a moment and wondered why I don’t like to argue – do I get angry too quick and want to fight or am I scared of being humiliated. […]

Leaving a Legacy of Honesty

2 Kings 12:15 (NIV) “They did not require an accounting from those to whom they gave the money to pay the workers, because they acted with complete honesty.” I studied the story of Joash, the youngest to become king of Judah, this morning and was struck by a couple of things in the narrative. One– […]

Don’t Be Like the Axolotl – Grow Up

Don’t Be Like the Axolotl – Grow Up

HEBREWS 5:13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. (NIV) I was reading my ‘Daily Bread’ meditation one morning and it talked about “The axolotl” – A Mexican salamander that retains tadpole-like characteristics throughout its life. It made me think what the world would be like […]

He Leadeth Me Beside the Still Waters

He Leadeth Me Beside the Still Waters

He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; Psalm 23: 2-3 (NKJV) I didn’t realize how painful the heart could hurt until one of my sisters passed in 2008 and another one a year later in 2009. I can’t describe the feeling except that it pierced to my soul. I thought I […]

You Are Light

You Are Light

One morning, around 2:00am, I awoke to a power outage. My house was pitch black, no light anywhere. I fumbled and stumbled my way to the kitchen where I kept a flashlight, pulled it out and the battery was dead. A feeling of dread overwhelmed me slightly as I pondered how I would get to […]
