  • The God of All Comforts - Indeed!

    20 February 2014

    Today's encouragement from Mr. Spurgeon includes a word or two on the benefits of prayer – why it is necessary before action, and why it often suffices in the place of action on our part. Rev. Spurgeon points out, in his eloquent way that it is GOD who...

  • Grace - "Don't Leave Home Without It"

    04 March 2014

    (Taking a break from the “Joy Journal” to share today's inspiration from Rev. Spurgeon...) March 4 Morning by Morning C. H. Spurgeon... 2 Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is sufficient for thee”. If none of God's saints were poor and tried, we should not know...

  • Joy to the World? A Simple Identity Crisis

    09 December 2013

    Do. Not. Judge. Three fairly simple words. One simple command. So, my question is what is so hard about it!? What part of “DO NOT JUDGE!” can we not seem to get our brain around?! I am saying this because of recent observations, and, of course, the leading...

  • Where Are You?

    02 January 2014

    As I prepared to begin my time in the Word this morning (lately I have begun by Worshiping in the Spirit and praying from the book, “Prayers that Avail Much”, because it is Word based prayer), I sensed a probing of the Spirit I sensed that He was asking...

    ~ Day One ~ One (Whole & Unified, Healed, Restored to fellowship with God, self & others) New (having left the old behind to find the person God has been making) “Man” (Having been re-created in the Image of God from His Created Earth; not gender specific...

  • The Law (Torah) - An Invitation or a Summons?

    16 December 2013

    In today's “Morning by Morning” devotional entry, ( http://www.ewordtoday.com/spurgeon/1216am.htm) Rev. Spurgeon seeks to compare man's salvation, through Yeshua's sacrifice – to – man's redemption, through the sacrificial system of the “Law”. I can see...

  • ...Groans - Which Find No Utterance....

    19 January 2014

    As I stood in front of the window at my sink, washing up the morning's dishes, I pondered at the seemingly mixed message which the weather seemed to be sending today. On the one hand the sun was shining, so bright, cheery and inviting – and yet the wind...

  • The Grace to Take That Next Step

    06 March 2014

    In the walk of faith, our most urgent consideration is always "the next step". Frequently we want to skip steps. We are often inclined to ignore the drudge work in front of us and wile away the hours dreaming of what is to come. But that is not the will...

  • Dealing with the Bird-Brain in Each of Us

    24 January 2014

    Janua ry 24 “ Morning by Morning” Charles H. Spurgeon Psalm 91:3 “Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler .” God delivers His people from the snare of the fowler in two senses. From, and out of. First, He delivers them from the snare-does...

  • Living in "The Blessing of God". Or Not. What's the Difference?

    10 January 2014

    First of all, I want to start out by saying that I have actively lived in the realm of, what has come to be mockingly called, “Charismania” for the last 35 years (before that I was in one of the “main-line” institutions of division, otherwise known as...

  • The One New Man Journal ~ Day Five

    05 March 2014

    Let the Dreams Begin.... I seem to be skipping days – it seems another storm (or several) has set in to challenge the progress – but no matter – we press on. What does it say in Phil. 3:13-14; “forgetting what lies behind (the things of the past - even...

  • Contentment in Sacrificial Living....

    15 May 2014

    (Solving the problems, conquering the illusions, overcoming the lies, and recouping the losses) Sometimes I notice that the girls gravitate to other women to fulfill a need they have for “girlie fellowship” - a commodity in which I am severely lacking....

  • Poverty Triumphant?

    26 June 2014

    As Inspired by My Utmost for His Highest, 6/26 I think “poverty triumphant” is a colloquial way of saying that we can triumph over the spirit of poverty. Which is what I see as the profound sense of lack, that seems to be the “lifestyle” of so many of...

  • The Impact of Family - and Our Own Choices - Upon Society...

    23 March 2014

    (...for Good or Evil – and Forever ) This morning as I was meditating on the goodness of God, and all that He has done in my life, I had an astounding thought. It was that my poor mother, as wounded as she was, had an amazing effect for both good and...

  • Purim - A Story of Teshuvah and Victory

    15 March 2014

    The story is found in the book of Esther, which will be read in Synagogues around the world during this time. There is something about that continuity which I find very comforting and engaging. In essence it is the short story of God's stubborn people...

  • "They That Wait Upon the LORD..."

    18 March 2014

    “....will renew their strength....” But what is this waiting upon the Lord? What does that look like? Can I do this while I watch my favorite entertainments on TV? Can I do this while I aimlessly roam the malls, looking for more things to salve this longing...

  • Breaking Free to the Real Me

    14 March 2014

    Day 14 of “The One New Man Journal”) Today I want to combine the journal writing with the other ongoing writing project in the works – which I plan to entitle, “A Year With Oswald Chambers” or something like that (thanks to the suggestion of a good friend...

  • God's NOT Dead! A Movie Review....

    25 March 2014

    (And a bit more...) We went to see the movie bearing this title, and we were quite impressed. The level of quality for “Christian” film making seems to be moving steadily upward. The acting was first rate, and the script was believable and moving. There...

  • Tuck It Up and Get Happy!

    28 April 2014

    What You Will Get ~ Bro. Oswald Chambers I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go — Jeremiah 45:5 This is the firm and immovable secret of the Lord to those who trust Him— “I will give your life to you . . . .” What more...

  • Hunting for Holiness

    02 April 2014

    Where has it gone? What has happened to it? Why do most people – even Christians - seem to be afraid of it? What is the misunderstanding here? What part of - “You must be Holy as I AM Holy!” - did we miss? These are good, if hard, questions, which need...

  • Drawing Near - A Saucy Experience!

    13 April 2014

    I Hear the Father saying this morning, that I am a “Sauce”! No one is surprised by this I am sure! I am a very spicy – pungent – aromatic – flavorful – colorful – delicious hot-sauce which He is making to improve the aroma, and the flavor of the “Dish”...

  • Accidental Apostasy?

    07 April 2014

    Have We (The Church in America) Unwittingly Left God? Part Three Deuteronomy 32:15-21. This is taken from the KJV, and has included the references from Strong's Concordance. 15 But Jeshurun H3484 waxed fat, H8080 and kicked: H1163 thou art waxen fat,...

  • The Journey Journal

    13 March 2014

    The"One NEW Man Journal" ~ Day Thirteen Wow. We skipped a lot of days there! That is partly because this is supposed to be sort of an up-beat gig, and life has been anything but “positive” lately! In fact, it has been more of a downer most days. So many...

  • Are WE In Charge of Utopia?

    09 May 2014

    “ Imagine” by John Lennon was a great song, with a resounding sentiment. It, much like the Israeli National Anthem, “Ha Tikvah”, expresses some of the finer, and most deeply rooted hopes of mankind. However, unlike “Ha Tikvah” it carries a fatal flaw,...
