From Legalism to Life

May 5, 2019

The New Testament tells us of a man named Saul. He was a deeply religious man who tried to obey all of God’s commands as well as the traditions of the religious leaders; but he was so focused on religious purity that he had somehow lost sight of God. The followers of Jesus at that time…

The Guilty go Free!

April 21, 2019

At Passover God’s judgement passed over every door that was covered by the blood of the sacrificial lamb. The Apostle Paul told us in 1 Corinthians 5:7 that Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed and in a similar way, every individual who has prayed for the blood of Jesus to cover them…

Wounds of a Friend

April 7, 2019

Zechariah 13:6 and John 13:1-5 After what has turned out to be a very difficult week, I am left thinking about how the deepest wounds so often come by the hand of a friend. There have been several instances in my life when relationships I was so sure about have not worked out at all…

He Knows the Way That I Take

March 24, 2019

Job 23:8-12 My husband and I enjoyed many safaris together while we lived in Africa. We had a four-wheel drive vehicle; we had all the necessary gear for such excursions (tents and coolers and cook stoves and such); and we had maps for where we were going – so why not head off into the…

Hearing from God

March 10, 2019

Mark 7:31-37 Have you ever struggled to hear the Lord (or, feel close to God)?  Ever struggled to really know what it is that He’s saying to you? Perhaps the first question we should really ask is, Do you even think that there is a God? And if you do, do you believe that He…

The Power of an East Wind

February 24, 2019

Exodus 15:2 There is an old saying in various parts of the world that “An east wind blows no good.” An “east wind” has become something almost synonymous with hardships, storms and trouble of the worst kind.

A New Father

February 10, 2019

Hebrews 12:7-11 If you have grown up in the care of loving, kind parents you are blessed! Over the years I have met many people from difficult family backgrounds. A friend of mine once confided in me that her own father had never kept his word to her growing up. He would promise to take…

No Condemnation

January 27, 2019

John 8:2-11 The Apostle Paul declared in Romans 8:1 that “there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”. How is it possible to be released from the judgment that we deserve? Who exactly is our judge? And is He truly merciful enough not to condemn us? No place is this better seen…

The sun may not be out today, but God is at work

January 14, 2019

The rain is pounding on the roof. I can hear it splashing out the gutters. It seems so cold and dark right now, I don’t want to get out of the blankets. Two weeks ago, I had to say goodbye to my husband. He died from Leukemia twelve days after our 35th wedding anniversary. I…
