One of my favorite parables is the Parable of the Unforgiving Debtor found in Matthew 18:23-35. In this story, Jesus tells of a servant who owes a large debt to his king. Unable to pay the debt, the servant pleads with the king who eventually forgives his servant of this insurmountable debt. Later on, we...

God’s Bad Memory

It’s hard to believe that the very One who created the elephant that supposedly never forgets has Himself such a bad memory. Granted, I’ve never trusted an elephant with any of my secrets to test the theory, but I have trusted God with the depths of my secrets hoping He forgets…but I digress.  There’s something...

Choosing Right When It All Feels Wrong

Thus says the Lord: “I offer you three things; choose one of them for yourself…” (2 Samuel 24:12) Decision making is not my forte. Even simple selections, like complimentary colors or enticing desserts, leave me unsettled. So, I get both! Who’s with me? But life isn’t all shopping and dining, is it? We find out just...

March has arrived!  Such an exciting time! Spring is around the corner. The birds are singing louder than usual, their beautiful, insistent chirping beckon us to come out into the light of God’s splendid creation as it prepares new life.

Waiting on the Lord

Have you ever prayed and God answered it immediately? Now, have you ever prayed and it took a while to be answered? Or, are you still waiting for your prayer to be answered by God?  In the story of Sarai and Hagar we see what taking matters into our own hands instead of waiting for...

The Blueprint

The Christmas season, especially with the younger children we have, comes with toys that often need to be built. Joshua received this one gift, and it was not working, so we went to return it only to find that we could no longer find it at any of the initially purchased stores. However, I slightly...

The Dare to Care to have Prayers for Chairs

Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you… ‘Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all Flesh. Is anything too hard for me?’ (Jeremiah 32:17, 27) I admit, I grew up Baptist. It’s...

Farm Livin’

“But concerning the times and the seasons…let us watch and be sober.”(1 Thessalonians 5:1,6) Have you ever been so completely absorbed in something you lost all track of time? Not me. (HA!) Truth be told, this happens more often than I’d like. Minutes and hours turn into days, even weeks, while valuable opportunity is wasted...
