  • A Call To Compassion!

    11 November 2016

    I am not back peddling here, BUT, I have to say that I think an adjustment (to yesterday's mile long rant on the current events) is in order. Please note that I didn't say “apology”, because that would involve a repenting of what I said. And I can not...

    The Art of Giving (Without Being Taken For a Ride) In order to understand the true heart of giving, one must come to know the heart of the One who “gave it all” to redeem His premiere creation. John 3:16 – 18 has this to say about Him; “For God so loved...

    Empty Nesting? Gone, but not Forgotten, and Certainly Not Mourned!!! While I like the sentiment expressed here, in a meme that was posted, I do not like the imagery attached to it! If I could recreate a meme to go with this sentiment I would definitely...

  • Figuring Out The Online World, And Other Observations!

    15 December 2009

    Wow! This is going to be a challenge for me. I am not the most computer savvy individual ever to live. This blog has been such a trip to navigate! I need a technical "GPS" just to get to the place to write the post! lol But it is so nice to have a place...

  • Happy Holidays?!

    26 November 2012

    As we come into this season, which happens to be a season of celebration in many cultures, I do not have a problem saying simply "Happy Holidays" or in Hebrew, "Chag Sameach!", I do not feel that I am slighting Yeshua in doing so, but simply including...

  • The Prize, The Peace and the Work of Overcoming

    05 December 2012

    Again today's writing was sparked by the writing of that greatly respected writer, who though dead nearly a hundred years continues to be my friend and daily encourager, the late and great Rev. Oswald Chambers. He writes, "Life without war is impossible...

  • More About the WORK of Overcoming

    06 December 2012

    (The Prize, The Peace and The Work of Overcoming - Part Two:) Positive thinking is a kind of faith, in that it is trust in what we can do in our own strength! And, like all human substitutions, it is not entirely useless, but neither does it have the...

  • Bringing the Life of G-d to Our Relationships .

    25 February 2012

    I awoke this morning considering the ways that the sexual union, now glibly called "making love", can affect us so differently from one time to another. Why at some times it brings a blissful euphoria, and at others it brings the dark shadow of deepest...

  • Echad

    26 June 2012

    Only You be in my heart, Only You come through my mouth, Only You now shine Your light, casting forth all gloom and doubt! Only You walk out in front, may I follow every move, and if I should step off the path, gently help me find Your groove. Only Your...

  • 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...
