Understanding the Perfect Will of God for Us

Understanding the Perfect Will of God for Us

The perfect will of God is the decreed, unchangeable, foreordained will that God has for us. It cannot be changed, neither can it be altered. This is the will of God that we are all called to allow to control our lives. The perfect will of God is not a walk in the park. It’s […]

Hunger Warning Signs

Hunger Warning Signs

Our body is a well run machine. Like late models, it has a built in warning system, waiting to alert us to possible trouble. If we are tuned into our body, we know when something is not quite right. In fact, hunger works in just the same way. We may become sluggish. Get a headache. […]

My Jesus Is Too Small

My Jesus Is Too Small

I confess that I often forget how big the God of the universe is. I worry, fret, and strive to take control over all things in a feeble attempt to grasp the peace that evades my soul. It slips away all too fast in the vast tides of this thing we call life and suddenly […]

I’m not sure who had more fun, my dad, or his great-grandchild. As I watched, and played, I remembered advice from […]

Perfect Love

Perfect Love

The other day I joined a group that does a Bible journaling challenge. This week’s is Perfect Love. With Valentine’s Day this month I think this is so good. There are so many out there looking for that perfect love, but are getting caught up in things they shouldn’t. My heart aches to reach out […]

On Asking for Signs

On Asking for Signs

Do you ever get goose bumps when you think about Jesus having walked this earth? I know that he did, and yet every once in a while I’ll read something and think, “Wow. He was here.” I had that thought when I heard about the news of Dalmanutha, a town that was recently discovered to […]
