Another Crown of Thorns

God Speaks A younger me often heard older saints speak of the Word of God with such reverence and love.  I could tell that the Scriptures were like an old friend to them.  They approached their Bibles with excitement.  They recounted how God was showing them new things all the time!  I desired the experience they enjoyed.  That desire gave me hope as I struggled to form good habits of Bible reading in the midst of all the distractions that were dangled in front of a twenty-something.   Now, after another set of twenty years, by God's grace, I have joined their ranks.  The joys that come from reading God's Word have been compounded by regular visits to the same pages over the...

I walked with God, child, when grown men were scared. I did as a young boy what no one would dare.   Goliath against my sling and some stones; my heart fully trusting in my God alone.   Though the great giant was taller than all, God and my slingshot had caused him to fall.   Oh, Please walk with God, child, and walk in your youth. Who knows what giants you'll topple with truth?   Oh, Weapons you fight with are not of this world. They're given by God to brave boys and brave girls....

Who Is Like the Lord?

For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord?     Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings? -Ethan the Ezrahite in Psalm 89:6   They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. -Paul in Romans 1:25   So the men of the city said to Joash, “Bring your son out.

Lord, I will try....

We are God’s Master Poem

When you look in the mirror what comes to your mind?  Do you see yourself as a masterpiece?  A poem, carefully crafted?  A work of great glory and detail?  A being of importance?   Perhaps when your hair is out of place and your breath smells less than desirable, you can't imagine that any of those nouns and adjectives apply to you.  Me neither!   Perhaps when you sin by ignoring the needs of those closest to you, or angrily lash out at a co-worker, or impatiently grumble at the trials of life, you don't feel like any of those nouns and adjectives apply to you.  And once again, I am right there with you.   Yet in the midst of both our disheveled hair and...
