  • 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...

  • Some Helpful Advice

    17 December 2013

    How I'm feeling? Don't ask! Though you ask from true caring; I'll be tempted to list stuff I shouldn't be sharing! To rehearse all the aches and pains, I'm sadly inclined, instead of just quoting the Word, I might whine! I'm overcoming some symptoms,...

  • A Resolution Worth Making....

    27 December 2013

    Where the Battle is Won or Lost “ If you will return, O Israel,’ says the Lord . . . — Jeremiah 4:1 Our battles are first won or lost in the secret places of our will in God’s presence, never in full view of the world. The Spirit of God seizes me and...

  • Shalom, Shalom - Perfect Peace

    03 January 2014

    Finding Peace in the midst of a raging storm, in the cold dark night, His Love so warm, His Spirit shields us from all harm, His Grace is all we need! Fighting, warring, to walk in Faith, struggling to find that Secret Place, striving to seek His loving...

  • Trying to Walk on One Leg?

    04 January 2014

    I once heard Rev. Hagan say that the “Walk of Faith requires two legs!”. What are those two “Legs” which are required to “Walk in Faith”? Trust and Obedience, also called “faith and works”! Works without faith, which is simply trust in the One being worked...

  • E. G. R.

    05 January 2014

    Extra Grace Required! This phrase has most accurately described my life of late! We are a mere five days into the illustrious new year, and so far we have seen nothing but giants! Oy-Gevault sized giants! Giants of lack, funky and unexplainable physical...

  • Our Only REAL Choice

    09 January 2014

    I'd rather be in God's goodwill, though it mean a prison cell, than blissfully going my own way, on a slippery path to hell! I'd rather face affliction now, with the victory of faith; than frolic in deception that removes me from His Grace. I'd rather...

  • A Psalm of Gratitude

    15 January 2014

    To the Champion of our souls! I'm grateful God, that You are real, that I need not fret o'er how I feel! In faith I firmly will proclaim, Complete deliverance in His Name! Knowing, when all around seems worse, I'm still redeemed from sin's dark curse!...

  • A Birthday Soliloquy:

    27 January 2014

    A Reminiscing, Hope-filled Celebration of My Journey to Life! Birthdays. An individual's “New Year's Day” - when one celebrates the gift of life, and tries not to think about the erosion of time that is unavoidably connected to the whole concept. On the...

  • Fool's Drool, But Will NEVER Rule...

    13 February 2014

    I don't know what it is about these things that touch “that nerve” in me – but almost every time I see this I just HAVE to respond! I am so Thankful that it is not ALL men! If it were I would NOT be happily married – or - married at all - in fact! So...

  • The Broken Vows, The Struggle to Freedom

    12 February 2011

    Tears streaming she picked up the pieces of her broken heart and life, all she wanted now was a quiet place to think until the pain subsided to a manageable level. Alone, disadvantaged by the fact that she had poured all the best years of her life into...

  • Freedom or Anarchy?

    10 February 2011

    When the youth cast off the reason and direction of their God-given authorities, when they struggle against the protection of His ordained boundaries (taught, however deficiently, by those authorities), they will soon find that their resulting “freedom”...

  • Epitaph

    13 June 2011

    Let not my passing bring much relief, nor such a mournful grievance be; But let there be a celebration, of the life I've lived for thee. This Lord is my one desire, may this be my only care, that, when my earthly race is over, those left may sense Your...

  • Living Dust

    11 February 2011

    As Adam, of creation fame, was shaped from dust, and then given name, I too was made again from what was dust, abused and left to rot. Broken far beyond repair, who could have known that He'd be there, gathering particles, piece by piece, the shatterings...

  • Pressing Without Stressing - The Goal

    29 January 2011

    I love the early mornings! I love to sit and write in the quiet hours, when I can hear the voice of God most clearly. I used to be shy about saying that, because some people think you are crazy if you claim to the hear voice of someone you can not see....

  • T'was the Night Before ... Ch...anukah?

    23 December 2011

    T'was the night before Christmas, and Chanukah too - Day Five! And so down at the Synagogue things are coming alive! The Family Chanukiah's will be kindled with care, To celebrate the victory, a "great miracle happened there"! Later, back at Duncanshire...
