  • Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit...

    25 July 2012

    ...Who Know We are "Born This Way"... (Part One) There is a lot of debate these days as to whether or not a particular sexual orientation is something that one is "born with". I think we all know that in the most basic sense of the word the sin nature...

  • Wait For It . . .

    26 July 2012

    The backlash doesn't always come when we expect it. In fact, that is rare. Usually it lingers until we are quite off guard and then - Wham! That is why most people think that they are "alright with G-d", despite having many life habits that conflict with...

  • A Psalm of Teshuvah - The Third Day

    07 May 2014

    (Please begin by reading David's Psalms 38 & 39) Loving, Merciful God; Again I cry out to you for Forgiveness for our Nation – and especially for all those who call ourselves by Your Name! As if all that I have listed so far were not enough to repent...

  • How Well Do We Know Our LORD?

    08 May 2014

    Do we know Him well enough to impart His Anointing to others? Today's Morning By Morning, devotional entry for May the eighth, written by the most excellent Rev. Spurgeon, made a really good point. You can read his wonderful writing which I have attached....

  • "What the World Needs Now Is Love Sweet Love...."

    11 May 2014

    "...It's the only thing that there's just too little of!” A great idea! But I don't think we, as the human race, have fully grasped the concept of Love – especially not Agape' - which is the Greek word for supernatural, God engendered LOVE – the kind...

  • A Light to the Nations...

    14 September 2012

    G-d said that the Nation of Israel is to be the Light to the Nations (through the seed of Messiah - who came as the Living Torah, to uphold and fulfill Torah)! It has become apparent to me that we sit, stand and work in darkness because we have shut off...

  • Friends and the Brevity of Life...

    12 October 2012

    I have always been somewhat sensitive to the temporary tenor of life on the planet. Perhaps that is due to being one of the younger of five siblings, meaning that our parents were older, more fragile, and our grandparents, and aunts and uncles had already...

  • A New Year's Resolution

    31 December 2012

    Some thoughts to ponder as we face another year of His Grace: 1. Yesterday is history. It is not to be dismissed or forgotten or overly grieved, but learned from, gleaned from. The things that need to be grieved, let them be respectfully grieved and then...

  • Anointed or Entitled?

    25 March 2013

    It has occurred to me that the difficulties most folks have in their "faith walk", even the recurring difficulty which I experience in trusting God, and watch others go through constantly, may be generated from an underlying sense of what is now known...

  • The Double Reckoning

    12 April 2013

    "...Likewisereckon (consider) yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God ." (Romans 6:9-11) I talk a lot about the concept of "dying to the flesh" - "Death to the Tyrant!" - I have written tomes on ignoring it, subjugating it, putting it down,...

  • A Rose By Any Other Name?

    15 April 2013

    Shakepeare's famous assertion, that "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet", does not logically apply to all of life - especially the spiritual life. That assertion begins with the question, "What's in a name?" Implying, of course, that "names"...

  • The Purity, The Problems, and the Pitfalls of Romance and Religion

    24 April 2013

    Pure Religion? What a concept! The Scripture does talk of something called "Pure Religion" (please see "James" - which should actually be entitled "Jacob" - 1:26-28, for a definition); however, after having had my gut-full of multiplied years of what...

  • The Hidden Blessings and Open Challenges of the World's Finest Art

    07 May 2013

    On Being a Mom ~ A Tribute to Motherhood by Sandra Carlton Duncan ~ (A Mom of seven, who is still working through the last stages of that glorious, but swiftly fading, career.) Part One: A tribute of a grateful daughter.... As I am writing this, it is...

  • The Beginnings of My Own Journey Through the Jungles of "Mother-(in-the-)hood"!

    08 May 2013

    Part Two of : The Hidden Blessings and Open Challenges of the World's Finest Art On Being a Mom ~ A Tribute to Motherhood by Sandra Carlton Duncan Oy! What a mixed bag motherhood is! It is the highest of highs and the lowest of lows! It is a roller-coaster...

  • Are You Kidding Me, Right Now?

    09 May 2013

    Part Three of the Motherhood Saga - The Hidden Blessings and Open Challenges of the World's Finest Art ~ A Tribute (thesis?) ~ by Sandra Carlton Duncan ~ As I have already suggested, pregnancy, despite its frequent challenges, was actually one of the...

  • Getting My Head Around Your Glory....

    12 June 2013

    ...A Prayerful Discovery First of all, Dearest Lord; I hear the urgent invitation for us to come to You. For us to come humbly seeking, receiving Your help, knowing that it is not our own rightness that gets us this audience, but Your compassion. It is...

  • The Proper Order of the Universe

    04 August 2013

    In a spiritual journey, that is real and not merely a virtual experience, one must first establish a relationship with the real and living God. And somehow to avoid getting side-tracked or waylaid by our own ideas, our own virtual - man-made substitutions,...

  • Focusing on the Silver Lining

    09 August 2013

    It is difficult to live in the strength of the Lord when one has lost ones joy! The struggle each day becomes keeping a positive attitude in the midst of the inherent strife of daily living with other humans! How is it possible? Our focus must be on the...

  • Enlightened or Enabled?

    27 August 2013

    We love LIGHT... because we know that only light can expose the threatening shadows of the unknown. And yet, it is not so commonly known, as Brother Oswald has pointed out (in today's excellent devotional segment of My Utmost for His Highest - August...

  • 911!!!!!!!

    01 September 2013

    I am up entirely too early this morning due to an alarm that went off in my spirit. The alarm was to this effect - "Get up and begin to pray and fast that there will be no destruction on 9/11!" The II Chronicles 7:14 alert is going off big time in the...

  • "The Weapons of Our Warfare Are..."?

    10 September 2013

    "... not carnal (fleshly, contrived or created or utilized by the lower nature), but are of divine power, able to pull down and destroy spiritual strongholds." To that I must say, "Ten-Four, good buddy!" That is what the truckers used to say when they...

  • We Are In For One Wild Ride....

    11 September 2013

    Today, in addition to praying for the Peace of Jerusalem, I am praying fervently for the Peace of DC, for the Peace of America. I am praying for the safety of those who ride for our rights. This is one instance in which the Hogs are totally Kosher! These...

  • Stress to Impress?

    16 September 2013

    We get all flustered and bothered about many things, as did the sister whose name was Martha in the New Testiment story. We enter into this relationship with God at first out of a sense of wonder, a drawing of our soul toward something vital, as King...

  • Faith

    15 October 2013

    ...what it is, and what it isn't. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen...." Thus begins the most well known Biblical treatise on the subject of that spiritual condition known as "Faith", found in Hebrews 11:1. The...

  • The Cross Marks the Spot

    26 November 2013

    (Inspired by “My Utmost for His Highest” for November the 26th) “The feebleness of the church is being criticized today, and the criticism is justified. One reason for the feebleness is that there has not been this focus on the true center of spiritual...
