  • Neck or Nothing!

    17 April 2013

    ( 04/17/2013 My Utmost for His Highest, John 21:7) "When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment . . . and plunged into the sea" Have you ever had a crisis in your life in which you deliberately, earnestly, and recklessly abandoned...

  • Assurance for Today....

    05 June 2013

    Blessed Assurance, when all is a mess! When failure seems sure, there's no hope of success! Energy's gone, motivation is too, all of the plans have fallen right through! Blessed Assurance! He reigns on high, Nothing can harm us, when He is nigh! All of...

  • Reverence Equals...

    04 June 2013

    . . . Secret Joy? "The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him..." So I guess the question becomes, "How much do we actually 'fear' or, using the word I prefer because of its clarity, 'revere' Him?" Or the question may be more aptly put, "How much...

  • "Wait For It....."

    02 May 2013

    Today this is said with a great flourish, when we hear that line we then anticipate the "punch line", or grand finale, of whatever joke or story was being told. But when it comes to real life, "waiting for it" - whatever "it" may be - is usually not something...

  • An Open, and Heartfelt Letter...

    07 June 2013

    ... to those caught in spiritual strongholds of any kind: (...including, but certainly not limited to, any and all sexual deviance from God's intended purposes for physical intimacy - which would encompass - by this definition - all sex outside of The...

  • Out of Salisbury?

    22 April 2013

    This morning I have deliberately, forcefully, resolutely pulled my mind from the political mayhem that engulfs our land, to focus on and consider what God seems to be doing a bit closer to home...like.. what He is doing in the personal lives of Sandra...

  • "Yes, But"...???

    30 May 2013

    "Yes - But?" This statement which began our devotional today presents an obvious contradiction. "Lord, (which indicates a relationship of leadership and submission) I will follow You, but...". ?? But what?! That tiny word suggests a significant hesitancy,...

  • Our Forever Love

    09 June 2013

    In Memory and honor of Roxanne Maddry and family June 9, 2013 As sins come out of closets, rapists, murderers and thieves, seem to multiply in number, and earth is left to grieve. We must be living in the last days, for surely love has grown so cold!...

  • Worship - Intimacy or Extortion?

    13 May 2013

    The problem I see with most of what is called "Worship" is that it just doesn't go far enough! It smacks of immaturity, of infatuation, of people that are just in it for the "feel-goods"! Like teenagers experimenting with "making-out", playing with the...

  • Innocence or Purity.....

    24 June 2013

    What's the difference? These two ideals are too often confused in our society. "Purity" is a deliberate freedom from the knowledge and practice of evil, or sin; while "Innocence" is a blissful ignorance of evil or sin, along with the dangers, harsher...

  • Seeing is Believing? Perception vs. Reality

    26 September 2013

    How has losing our faith affected our security? How has rejecting the One True God and His standard of behavior disintegrated the fabric of our once solid society? How has the structure of our nation been undermined, and how has it become so tottering...

  • Father's Day ... An Honest Memorial

    16 June 2013

    Not unlike Mother's day, this day brings a lot of mixed feelings with it. Let me say at the out-set - for the sake of any siblings who may read this - that my memories may not reflect total reality for everyone involved. We each have our perspective....

  • ". . . The Last Full Measure of Devotion. . ."

    19 November 2013

    "....The Last Full Measure of Devotion..." This phrase was used in Mr. Lincoln's elegant and poignant speech to dedicate the Gettysburg cemetery. This hallowed ground was set aside for the burial of the fallen ones who died protecting the Liberty of All,...

  • "In God We Trust!" ?

    31 May 2013

    That is a great sentiment, and there is much a-do about the fact that is has disappeared off our currency of late. However, I propose that this was because the currency was the last thing still declaring that truth, and that God Himself likely erased...

  • Will the Real ME Please Stand Up?!

    31 July 2013

    "The hardest thing to face is the truth about ourselves." ~ Anonymous It is time we come to grips with this truth. If we do not, then all other truth will simply roll off our self-protective coating of denial and unreality - and will leave us unchanged,...

  • Remember, Revere - Redeem, Restore

    24 September 2013

    (perhaps even Resurrect?) The Purpose and Reward of observing the Moedim (Appointed Times), The Feasts of the LORD. "If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves (suggests fasting) and pray, and seek my face (implies more of an effort...

  • The Problem With Pride

    02 October 2013

    This morning I awoke to realize that these words were rolling through my spirit, "...you know, religious pride is STILL PRIDE...". (!?) "No kidding", I thought, as I rubbed sleep from my eyes and rolled over to check the clock. Yep. 4:45. Wake up call....

  • Temptation - The True Testing Ground

    18 September 2013

    This is based on two devotional entries from My Utmost for His Highest - an excellent devotional reader, which my readers are familiar with by now! The entries from yesterday and today both deal with the subject of "Temptation", and what it means, or...

  • A Simple Honest Confession

    04 September 2013

    Whether I write or sing, or clean or teach, I do it first and foremost for the pleasure and approval of the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords - why then should I need the approval of anyone else? The truth is that I don't! But sometimes I forget that....

  • Humility....Again

    05 October 2013

    Subtitled - Humility, the Key to Exaltation (Or, Achieving Well-being within the Kingdom of God) "For God resists the proud (not so passive as it sounds I think), but give grace (not so ethereal, and non-substantial as we have made it) to the humble"...

  • How Real is His Grace, to Us?

    04 October 2013

    "We all have the trick of saying—'If only I were not where I am!—If only I had not got the kind of people I have to live with!', If our faith or our religion does not help us in the conditions we are in, we have either a further struggle to go through,...

  • Finding Our Inner Selves

    06 September 2013

    This is the declared goal of every introspective human on the planet. This is the goal, especially, of those who are on the quest of “inner peace”. Those who have become somewhat fed up with the strife of just trying to live in a willy-nilly, “devil may...

  • The Problem of Parenting

    14 October 2013

    (A Parallel to Consider, and a Call to Answer) I believe that our creator in His infinite wisdom hid many a life lesson within nature. The process in which the homely caterpillar becomes a graceful butterfly is a good representation of how God's grace...

  • A Personal History with Yeshua?

    16 August 2013

    From today's daily devotional (M.U.F.H.H. ~ O.C.), we glean that relationship trumps doctrine any day. And we all should know that to be true. I know many men by reputation only, but I only know my husband in a multifaceted, deep, and meaningful way....

  • A Call to Revolution

    29 September 2013

    (Dr. Seuss style, notwithstanding) I do not like this, Uncle Sam! I do not like this "health-care" scam! It should not be passed into law, Until we've fixed its major flaws! And if this "law" was NOT just lies, Wouldn't "OPTING OUT" then be unwise? But...
