  • The Broken Vows - "Tomorrow is Today"

    20 February 2011

    The first decisions of a new lease on life had been made. Inwardly she cried out to God for strength and wisdom, hoping that if He answered she would be able to hear Him, and strong enough to do what He said, for a change! Of all the failures in her life,...

  • A Personal Journey of Teshuvah

    08 October 2011

    Teshuvah is the Jewish word that has loosely been translated as Repentance, meaning to turn from. But what is lacking in that definition is that there is also something to turn to, or return to, more precisely. Even for those who never actively sought...

  • The Restless Blog Continuum...

    05 March 2011

    I awoke this morning to a great heavy fog, a storm front caused by "the cares of this world" syndrome. The "list" for today's "to-do" looming upon me as the shadow of a great hawk threatening to devour its prey. Definitely not the way one should start...

  • When It Comes to Freedom - Where is the Real Honor? Part 4:

    15 March 2011

    There is so much real Spirit led preaching about honor these days! And it is all good stuff! However, the point that is still continually being missed, at least in what I have heard so far, is that it is rarely, if ever, applied to the proper honoring...

  • An Evening Psalm

    12 March 2011

    .Safely through another day, laying down to rest, hoping I have kept the way, doing what is best. Praying for the ones in need, praying for Your peace indeed, so that I can learn to heed, living as one blessed. May my dreams be of Your glory, my strength...

  • Ode To An Odious Boyfriend!

    15 February 2011

    I thought him to be the one who would care for her, our treasure, the beat of our hearts, I thought that he would be one who would give his life in her defense, as we would have, he seemed to judge our inadequacies so hard, surely he had more to offer?...

  • When it Comes to Freedom - Who Cares Enough to Change? Part 5:

    17 March 2011

    I want to say up front that I am not a "Women's Libber". I was. Back in the day, when I fought everything that moved, and my liberal education outweighed my scriptural understanding. Then I began to follow Jesus, and a bunch of His representatives convinced...

  • For The Joy That Endures

    08 March 2011

    It is written, that for the Joy which was set before Him, Jesus endured the cross. I have meditated on that a lot, I have tried to imagine what kind of Joy could have been a motivation worth that kind of suffering! If only I could get hold of the vision...

  • Harmonic Tapestry or Hellish Tangle?

    06 March 2011

    God meant us to be interwoven with others. No man is an island unto himself. Indeed, no one can be an island, unless he can manage to live a completely isolated, reclusive lifestyle, void of interaction of any kind. Which means that he may not have, or...

  • When It Comes to Freedom - Are We Insane? Part Three:

    14 March 2011

    Again, let me reiterate that my intention is not to attack "The Church", but to examine some doctrinal flaws that are causing untold damage and distress within her! We are the Church if we are believers in Messiah! We do not need to function as one with...

  • Rest

    18 March 2011

    The Ways of God do mystify, sometimes I laugh, and often cry, but always reaching out His hand, He lifts me up to understand, His heart is always for my best, and so, in that, my soul can rest! The ways of God, I can not know, the many paths He'd have...

  • Marriage - the Magical Mystery Tour?

    24 March 2011

    Marriage is the mystery that transcends all time and history, that germinates within the hearts, and saturates all other parts, of the lives of those entwined - body, soul and mind, as two lives are joined together, through the storms that we must weather,...

  • When It Comes to Freedom: Will We Pay the Price? Part Two:

    12 March 2011

    How can we expect to ever come into unity and agreement with each other as long as any people are being denied their God intended rights, authority, honor and positions? How can we possibly get His work done, when a full half, if not more, of His workers...

  • A Prayer for Grace!

    02 May 2011

    Dearest Father, LORD of All, Please, hear this servant, as I call! As I fall in worship before Your face, grant me power, Love and grace! Grace to serve You all my days, grace to boldly keep Your ways, grace to preach Your Holy Word, obeying all that...

  • When it comes to Freedom - How is that Defined? Part 6

    22 March 2011

    At first we are tempted to think of that title as an oxymoron. We tend to reason that boundaries restrict or limit, and therefore are not conducive to freedom. But that is a childish and unlearned pattern of thinking. There is no part of life, in actuality...

  • All We Need Is Love?

    19 March 2011

    We sing millions of songs about love, "All the world needs now is love sweet love, its the only thing that there's just too little of...." - oldies, but goodies. Yet we somehow miss the fact that Love is not some passive, gooey, substance-less, mystical,...

  • Missing the Forest for the Greenhouse!

    16 March 2011

    I have come to see a truth about all these "spiritual movements" of late. I am stirred to investigation by some of the truths being propounded by the "Anti-Organized-Church" movement, the "Church Outside Walls" movement, and some other new and fresh approaches...

  • Love is Calling Out Our Name....

    25 March 2011

    Having an anniversary is sort of like the first day of the new year, or significant birthdays, it is another time of reflection, assessment and discovery. It is another opportunity to change the dynamics of our relationship to our spouse, and others,...

  • Lingering - and Learning - In Limbo Land

    28 March 2011

    (Faithfully Enduring The Transitioning Stages of Life...) The Chambered Nautilus Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894) This is the ship of pearl, which, poets feign, Sail the unshadowed main, – The venturous bark that flings On the sweet summer wind its purpled...

  • Family - the original "iron sharpening iron" facility. Get the point?

    26 March 2011

    Sometimes family is the epitome of comfort, love and meaningful existence, but sometimes they can seem the total antithesis of these important concepts. Sometimes they can seem more like your worst enemies, your most trying tests, and your most serious...

  • Mother's Day 2011 - a Meditation

    08 May 2011

    First of all I want to do the obvious thing and honor my Mother. Due to a life ravaged by illness and spiritual depravity she did not live up to much honor. Yet it was her "barque" that bore me hence, if a bit unwillingly, and I am grateful (most days...

  • Never Again! Please, Never Forget!

    01 May 2011

    (A meditation on Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day) For the Jewish community, and those who share their G-d, and their beliefs, today is Yom Ha Shoah, Holocaust remembrance day. There are many who are astounded at this, who ask, "Who wants to remember...

  • Leaving the Leaven?

    16 April 2014

    Immediately following Passover, in fact, beginning during the Pesach Feast, comes the feast known as “Unleavened Bread”. I find this order of things most significant! First the Lamb is sacrificed, and its blood is applied to “thresholds” of our “dwellings”,...

  • Teshuvah, The U-Turn to Freedom!

    17 April 2014

    I greet each day in the Joy of His love, choosing His victory, to live above the defeats of the flesh that threaten and churn, I choose to listen, to return - to the Word of Life, from the ways of death – Yeshua, my hope, my Life, my breath! He is my...
