Pain Transformed

Pain Transformed

by Danetta Kellar @DanettaKellar You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

God’s Misrepresentative

God’s Misrepresentative

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates both day and night. Psalm 1:1-2 Mockery means to imitate or […]

The Real Comfort of Christmas

The Real Comfort of Christmas

Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for… Isaiah 40:1-2 Our hearts long for comfort at Christmas. I remember the comfort of waking up one Christmas as a child and finding it had snowed three feet during the night, […]

An Unusual Gratitude

An Unusual Gratitude

A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all. Psalm 34:19 Every year, my family and I spend the month of November writing down what we are thankful for. In the beginning, when we lived far away from home in the Arab world, I simply cut the paper which […]

A Lamp and a Light

A Lamp and a Light

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105 The gentle yellow glow of the lantern lit the darkness just beyond my feet. The African night was as black as the deep caves along the river bank and I could not see a single star in the vast […]

When You Don’t Know How To Face the Day

When You Don’t Know How To Face the Day

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11) I was overwhelmed with sorrow. Someone I loved was facing terminal illness, and my heart was weighed down with the reality of pending loss. I wanted to crawl into a […]

He is Our Sufficiency

He is Our Sufficiency

Not that we are sufficiently qualified in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency and qualifications come from God. 2 Corinthians 3:5, AMP I admit I am a fear fighter. I get excited about visionary projects and then just at the threshold of launching them forward, I stand like a horse […]

Seeing the Invisible

Seeing the Invisible

…he persevered (endured), because he saw Him who is invisible. Hebrews 11:27 The battle between the visible and the invisible threatens to rend me in two many days. What is visible to me is a house that is knee-deep in dirty socks, children’s toys, and just plain dirt in the corners. The garden is overcome […]

My Favorite Picture of My Father and Me

My Favorite Picture of My Father and Me

…the beloved of the Lord will live safely by Him; He protects him all the time, and the Lord places him on his chest. -Deuteronomy 33:12, NET I sat upright, my book crashing to the floor beside the bed. That sounds like a train. And it is coming for our house. I leapt to the […]

The Rock That is Higher

The Rock That is Higher

Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. -Psalm 61:1-3 I once lived in an […]

The Right Way

The Right Way

He led them forth by the right way. -Psalm 107:7 I followed her silently through the tall grasses of the savanna hills. The beads around her neck reflected the bright African sun as I squinted to see the path ahead. We had been in the bush for two days, and today we were headed to […]

Fearful Follower

Fearful Follower

Now they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was going before them… And as they followed Him, they were afraid. Then He took the twelve aside again and began to tell them the things that would happen to Him. “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man […]

The Treasure of Our Words

The Treasure of Our Words

Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name. Malachi 3:16 I have been thinking much about spoken words lately. I have spoken hasty and harsh […]
