  • Today's Zinger

    15 April 2010

    The Morning Zinger ~ Via Oswald Chambers, enhanced by the Ruach Ha Kodesh “You are no more in need of a holiday from spiritual concentration than your heart needs a holiday from beating! You can not have a moral holiday and remain moral, nor can you have...

  • Christmas Afterglow....

    26 December 2010

    . This morning is the day after Christmas. I sit writing, still basking in the glow of a wonderful day, and marveling at how it all came about. You see, this season didn't start out all that merry! There was so much stress this year! To begin with, there...

  • The Warrior King

    28 January 2011

    Like Aragorn from “Lord of the Rings”, we are sons and daughters of the real King! Warriors and warrior Queens! Not fading flowers and silly things! And like that wild tale, there are many foes, many hidden sorrows and woes, Things we must overcome, places...

  • Protection or Imprisonment?

    30 March 2011

    One of the most basic needs of a human being is a sense of safety. This need is so ingrained in our core that the lack of it, or even a temporary interruption of it, will produce many varied dysfunctions in the human psyche. If we feel threatened we withdraw,...

  • So Then, Just What Seems to Be the Problem?!

    22 October 2013

    Thanksgiving is coming up, but I think this year many Americans may have to work a bit harder to find as much to be thankful for as in years past. Not that most Americans have used this holiday as an opportunity for gratitude anyway, but that was its...

  • Four Cups of Wine and Feeling Fine!

    15 April 2011

    ("The Four Cups": A Divine Object Lesson on Deliverance in the Passover Observance) Each year at Passover I seem to experience a "light-bulb" moment or two, wherein something which I had previously "passed-over" jumps out at me, and reveals a deep-seated...

  • Intercession - From God's Perspective

    01 April 2011

    The intercessor that I need, has a tender heart indeed. Hears My every sigh and word, and acts upon what he has heard. He lets Me soften every place that has grown hard, or lacks My grace, and lets Me toughen what is weak, listening in case I speak. Then,...

  • Dayenu? Is it ever really enough?

    12 April 2011

    As we approach this season of Passover, as is my custom, I have begun to refresh myself on the songs that we traditionally do at our little Seder, and to decide on recipes for the meal, etc. This morning, however, as I went over the words to the rollicking...

  • Easter Be Damned!

    22 April 2011

    - OR - The Ridiculous Perversion of the Celebration of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of the Passover Lamb by the Organized "Church". We are warned in several places in Scripture to "stay alert to the schemes of the enemy", which may include, but are...

  • WHEN We Sin....

    30 December 2013

    Not to be a Negative Noddy, or a Rain-cloud Regular, but surely I am not the only one who experiences daily struggles with negative behavioral issues! I don't know about the rest of you people, but despite the excellent work of the Holy Spirit in my life,...

  • When The Muse Is Silent...

    10 April 2011

    ... The Artist Can Not Work - the writer can not write, the sculptor can not sculpt, the painter can not paint, the dancer can not dance, the designer can not design, the composer's pen is still and the singer's voice falls silent. The word "muse", for...

  • A Prayer From Stormy Galilee

    02 April 2011

    Oh You who walked the stormy sea, calm this storm that's within me! Clear away the clouds until I find the sunlight of Your will! Dark shadows, overwhelming me, are dispelled by Your decree, and if I can just find Your face, I'll be delivered by Your...

  • Some Thoughts on Religious Bias..

    19 January 2012

    Lately, in my little universe, that is, in the life which I live by the unfathonable grace of G-d, there has been a lot of things said about religious biases. I think there is a need to point out that we ALL have a religious bias of one kind or another...

  • Our G-d Reigns!

    22 January 2012

    Our G-d Reigns! Isaiah 52:7 "How Beautiful on the mountains are the feet of Him who brings the Good News ... who proclaims to Zion, our G-d Reigns!" Why is that the good news? Our G-d Reigns? Isn't that like stating the obvious? Why is that good news...

  • Faith vs. Zeal

    02 May 2012

    Abraham exhibited faith, Peter exhibited zeal. Peter's exhibition was louder, more immediate, more convincing. But Abraham's, though quieter, and not as outwardly detectable, was solid, convinced and sure that G-d would do whatever it took to keep His...

  • But?! Why Would G-d Judge America?

    06 May 2012

    Part I Why indeed!? Let me count the ways! The list is virtually endless! Let me see, where does one start? How about at the beginning? Sure, there were some who really did come over here just to find peace from religious and political oppression! And...

  • Beyond the Agony of Defeat....

    24 March 2013

    When life gives you the sucker punch, and your spirit gasps for air, and you should have seen it coming (again) from out of who knew where... just lay it all down at His feet, He who traded pain for Joy, we all know He's the only one that can deal with...

  • The Feast of Tabernacles - The Great Camp-Out with G-d

    27 October 2011

    One definition of sin I have heard over the years is "missing the mark". Oy vey! If that is so, then we have surely sinned! And the really bad thing is that we have no idea how badly, and how often, we do "miss His mark", or how far off we are from His...

  • Grieving the Less Glorious Events of Life

    27 May 2013

    After I wrote the lovely post earlier today, honoring our fallen heroes and walking wounded (from many varied wars...), I was stricken with this impression, "What of those who are grieving the loss of loved ones who were clearly NOT heroes?" What of those...

  • The Joys of Parenting Older Children

    06 November 2011

    What do I like about parenting now? It is hard to explain, but I'll try anyhow. I like that my children can understand words, and that they don't try to act like they haven't heard. I like that they now understand how we feel, so that when life gets hard...

  • Peace - the Quiet of Knowing God....

    28 May 2013

    Today's devotional passage from my favorite devotional journal ever, "My Utmost for His Highest", speaks of the Scripture, in which Yeshua makes a bold and incomprehensible statement. It is incomprehensible to the natural man, anyway. The very idea that...

  • Veteran's Day

    11 November 2011

    A day our nation celebrates the lives of those who fought, to keep freedom flowing, winning back what had been bought. Who gave their lives, their last full measure, to restore the stolen treasure, Lady Liberty salutes them daily, while we enjoy freedom...

  • Order From Chaos

    15 July 2013

    It is a Spirit of God thing. The idea of evolution is a random ordering of matter. An insanely illogical idea, really. The degree of order in our spiritual and physical life is solely dependent upon our degree of participation with His eternal purposes....

  • Brain Washing? Or, Just Good Training?

    16 July 2013

    I am aware of how closely what I feel impressed upon to write these days corresponds with what my "mentor over the ages" - the incomparable Oswald Chambers has written. It has been suggested to me - ever so kindly - that perhaps this is due to the fact...

  • The Many Trials of Life:

    17 June 2013

    Coincidental Side Effects of Living? Spiritual Harassment? Or just Combat Training? I really need to develop consciousness of this fact - that our trials are His blessings incognito - or - at the very least, they contain the keys which we access His treasures...
