Love Wins

Last week I posted some musings on a variety of things. This paragraph was included: Love wins. Period. There is no person, no program, no politics, and no policy that can eliminate the division in our nation, or the darkness that is so prevalent in this world. It should go without saying that dogmatically expressing our … More Love Wins

Just Musing

Just musing this morning. No official “Monday Morning Musings.” No podcast. No series. No particular format or pre-planned content. Just my heart – reflecting – pondering – considering – a variety of things. Things like: His great faithfulness. Years ago, Jesus told me He didn’t mind proving His faithfulness to me. He has–over and over again. … More Just Musing

Monday Morning Musings: “Be-Loved, week 3”

Waiting. Could there possibly be a more despised concept in western culture? In these days of instant gratification and instant access to just about everything, waiting has become a foreign concept. Yet the exhortation to “wait on the Lord” is found throughout Scripture. Anyone who has walked with the Lord for more than about five … More Monday Morning Musings: “Be-Loved, week 3”

Time to Be-Loved? New/old curriculum available (free) online soon!

Years ago I saw a picture of a circle that began, then ended, then began again. Each time the circle closed and began again, it was within the previous circle, but slightly smaller. After several circles had begun, then closed, then began again, the picture took on the shape of a funnel. I realized that … More Time to Be-Loved? New/old curriculum available (free) online soon!

Hollywood, please get this one right…

A movie based on the New York Times best seller, The Shack, will be released next month. I’m SO excited!  But I’m also a little scared. I’m a little scared because, in recent years, Hollywood does not have a good track record when it comes to producing quality movies that rightly represent the heart and character of God. Sure, … More Hollywood, please get this one right…

Focusing on Addition

I just had a bit of an epiphany. I have often said that I struggle with MANY things–but my relationship with God is never one of them. I know He loves me. I know He is with me. I know He is for me. Regardless of my life circumstances. Period. I also know that is not the reality of … More Focusing on Addition

Choose Your Battle

No, that’s not a typo. I didn’t mean to say choose your battles. Choose your battle. Choose your battle carefully. Choose your battle wisely. Because the battle isn’t  … Against ungodly governments or legislation Against corrupt leaders and officials Or even against bullies, murderers, and terrorists The battle isn’t … Against that person with whom … More Choose Your Battle

Monday Morning Musings: Wretch or Wonder?

A holy hush settled over the entire room. The soft and tender tones of women singing out their sincere love and longing for Jesus filled the atmosphere. It was a taste–just a tiny taste–of heaven on earth. Then it happened. (Oh why does it always happen?) “If you’re struggling with SIN don’t let anything keep you from Jesus. … More Monday Morning Musings: Wretch or Wonder?

Is it His Goodness?

“Is it His goodness that makes you weep?” Heaven only knows how long I had been there. I was at the Convention Center in Jerusalem attending a week-long international conference celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). It was toward the end of the week and the night had ended with an extended time of worship. … More Is it His Goodness?

Pieces of My Heart

So I worked on this little project before Christmas and I sort of forgot to tell anyone about it. Basically, I’ve published another book called Pieces of My Heart. It was fairly easy to put together because I didn’t really write anything new–it is a (somewhat) random compilation of stuff I’d previously written. I like … More Pieces of My Heart
