  • FOCUS!

    20 December 2012

    Focus determines direction, direction determines destination! " I , If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto Me ...."John 12:32 Notice that He does NOT say, if you magnify all that does NOT lift Me up! Nor does He ever suggest that it is our job to...

  • The War On Joy

    16 December 2012

    As hymns, traditions, their songs employ, we seem to have a war on Joy; The sadness, as a heavy smog, dampens joy in misty fog. Yet we Light the candles, and the tree, Honoring One who can make us free! Another friend, has turned to foe, choosing pride...

  • Asking the Right Questions, Getting the Right Answers

    29 May 2013

    Again, I am writing in response to a Devotional entry, which is included in posting on Face Book, my favorite, "My Utmost for His Highest". Today's devotional began with an extraordinary promise, "In that day you will ask in my Name ... because the Father...

  • "Who's Your Daddy?"!

    11 December 2012

    This is one of the many popular current catch-phrases of today's increasingly "tough-guy culture. It is an imposed persona which is intended for intimidation! Otherwise known as the "bad-ass" image, which is a psychological self-defense mechanism - that...

  • "What God Has Joined Together...

    15 January 2013

    ... Let No Flesh Put Asunder" You may recognize this phrase as the final emphasis which the minister reverently utters as the "seal the deal" declaration in many "Christian/Western Religion" oriented marriage ceremonies. What a small and conveniently...

  • To The One Who Awakens Me

    04 January 2013

    (Shepherd, Rabbi, Lover, Lord) Awaken me morning by morning, patiently teach me Your ways, Forgive my dull resistance, sometimes I feel so dazed. The damage of my former "life" still laying around my feet, is difficult to overlook, it represents defeat,...

  • "Get Your Affairs In Order..."

    22 July 2013

    This the grave expression that is usually uttered, if we are diagnosed with a grave illness, a condition, which has a brief life expectancy. We are told to "get our affairs in order" - so that we can die in peace knowing that our family is not unnecessarily...

  • An Open Letter...

    23 January 2013

    ... to all those kind enough, intrigued enough or astounded enough to keep reading my writing; First of all, thank you hanging in. This is going to be a long one, but since it these are complicated times I can not express what I am feeling in a few lines!...

  • We've Got a Friend

    26 January 2013

    This morning as I woke up I felt like a million pounds had fallen on me in the night! The particular circumstances do not really matter, they change minute to minute, but the way I handle the weight makes all the difference. So as I sat, trying to gather...

  • Praying the Effective Prayer

    13 January 2013

    We've all been there. At one time or another in our lives we reach that place where we feel we've done all we can to get God involved in our exploits, or, rather, to feel like we are involved in His, but seemingly to no avail. The heavens echo our prayers...

  • L'Abri - Then and Now

    18 January 2013

    I first read L'Abri, which is a French word that means "The Shelter", as a newly married woman without children. It is a great book by Edith Schaeffer about the early years of foreign ministry with her husband Francis and their children. I remember vividly...

  • "...Weary in Well-Doing..."

    23 February 2013

    This is a well known phrase among the religious. It is "King James" vernacular for "getting tired of doing the right thing without seeing the commensurate results, and therefore ceasing (or at least being tempted to cease) to do right". What does the...

  • The Great Stand-off...

    19 March 2013

    ... Between God and His Own... I see too many believers now days who are caught in a great impasse. Including us! What I mean is that place where God is saying to them, "Go, and I will show you..."; and they are stonewalling Him by saying, "Nay, Lord...

  • Warrior Song

    16 April 2013

    The men of God fall by the score, what makes us think we'll win this war? In thick of night, the battles rage, what antidote will disengage, from fear of death, from dread of pain? What makes us live to fight again? The Light of Life within our souls,...

  • Eagles or Turkeys? Yes. It matters.

    01 January 2013

    An eagle fears no cliffs - fiscal or otherwise. In fact the eagle fears very little! As one of the best of God's flying beings, at least in this realm, the eagle, once discharged from its mother's careful instruction, has no fear of "falling off" anything!...

  • Its Passover, Time to Lose the Leaven!

    26 March 2013

    For the Observant Jewish Home (and in a growing number of homes of Followers of Yeshua; who have allowed the Ruach to open their eyes to these Appointed Times of the LORD) this has been a bustling time of preparation! Much work is required to ready the...

  • A Prayer of Devotion

    13 March 2013

    Be my center, be my sun, let my all revolve on Thee! Never leave my flesh alone, nail it, Lord, to Calvary! Let my abandon, and my love be all consuming, faithful, real, make my motivation pure, not self-exalting, religious zeal! Ruach Ha Kodesh, shine...

  • Ha Tikvah, The Hope

    20 April 2013

    Such a yearning, such a burning, longing ever to be free, of the fleshly, ugly, strongholds, that keep our souls from Thee! Longing evermore to Worship, in Your purity and light, yearning to escape the shadows that still haunt us in the night! Do come...

  • Have You Really Seen Him?

    09 April 2013

    I was reading my daily devotional today and I was stricken with a sudden revelation! Brother Chambers frequently astounds me with his profound insights and today was no different! He said, "Being saved and seeing Jesus is not the same thing. Many are...

  • If Our Leadership is "Mentally Afflicted"....

    04 April 2013

    ... What Does This Say About Us? Response to Article on "Obama's Narcissistic Condition" {* A note of explanation: Recently I received an article in my inbox from a trusted source, written by a Dr. Michael Habberman, which seemed to prove in no uncertain...

  • "Can These Bones Live?"

    01 June 2013

    A Timely Question. Ezekiel was asked this question by the Spirit of God, who had just shown him a vision of the valley of dry bones! His profound answer was the only rational answer to be given, "Oh Lord, You know!" The conversation from there becomes...

  • The Treacherous Falsehood of Feelings

    19 April 2013

    "Feelings, nothing more than feelings, trying to forget those feelings of love....." So goes an old love song. Or was it yet another forlorn, "lost-love" song? Which ever it was, it rightly expressed to some extent, the undependable nature of our feelings....

  • Life Feels Like a Country Song Right Now....

    19 May 2013

    Come and Heal Me Again Lord, I'm letting go of this pain in my heart, cold disrespect, has nearly torn me apart! I can't hold on, through the hurt and the pain, Hold onto me, Lord, and heal me again! I'm walking away, while I have some esteem, Don't want...

  • "Can You Hear Me Now?!"

    27 April 2013

    The prophets have historically been slaughtered in the name of enlightenment! That is the same as accusing the candle of the darkness to justify snuffing it out! But, of course, it is because they inevitably come to cover the flesh's happily irresponsible...
