“I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior. Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?” (Isaiah 43:11,13 NIV) God set forth motion The earth began formless and empty. Darkness set over the surface of the deep. When God created the heavens and earth, God set forth motion. He devised a plan and set the completion date 6 days later. After each day, He saw his work was good. God blessed the 7th day as holy, for rest from […]
“Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came from Heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” (John 12: 27,28 NIV) Crowd confused? A crowd stood their mouths gasped and eyes wondered. Where did this voice come from? They were confused. One side thought an angel spoke to Jesus. Others felt it had thundered. Jesus clarified the voice was for their benefit.

In my spirit, I heard, I have already gone before you. OK! David waved goodbye and I was […]
Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. (Psalm 90:1,2 NIV) A fresh start Motivating Monday! Let’s get our blood pumping and our thoughts jumping. The opportunity to begin with a fresh start may produce a great ending to our week.

If the light within you is full of darkness, how great is that darkness! (Matthew 6:22,23, NIV) Physical eyes My eye doctor has been telling me for years when I turn 40 my eyes will change and will need bifocals. Each time, I politely tell my eyes are not going to worsen.

Find yourself blessed to find one who will sharpen with iron. Though the words are sometimes harsh and/or hard to swallow know it is a blessing, as I have.
