Spiritual Blueprint

Ephesians 2:19 “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy…

See you Tomorrow

I was feeling quite tired this morning when my alarm went off to get up for some private time with the Lord; before the hustle and bustle of the day was in full swing. I groggily got out of bed and stumbled in the dark to the coffee pot. As my feet hit the floor my…

Scum of the World

1 Corinthians 4:9 For I think that God has exhibited us apostles as last of all, like men sentenced to death, because we have become a spectacle to the world, to angels, and to men. 10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong.…

Unfinished

I'm a self proclaimed mess, at least most days. To say "God's not done with me yet", would be an understatement in my opinion. I should say though, I'm not sure that I would want to arrive at such a state, as being finished, at least not while in this old clay vessel. For in…

Treasure

We scarcely have the capacity to comprehend the richness of our God. The Creator. The one who holds all things together; and stands outside of time as we know it. I don’t think I had ever really considered it myself, a flaw of the human sort, I’m sure. However, one night during a weekly Bible…

Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly… But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf…

Life-Verse

Someone asked me what my “Life-Verse” was about 6 months ago. At the time I had never considered it. I love the Bible and there are so many verses that resonate with me on a deep level, I couldn’t imagine picking just one. But none the less, the thought stuck to me as I tossed…

The Grand Conductor

We might be overwhelmed to look out at the state of the world, or even our own neighborhoods, and think, how can our small lives really make much of a difference. In the grand scheme of things, I am a “no-body”, in the since of—I don’t have power or money or influence to any great…
