God is…

  Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Thine; Thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and Thou art exalted as head above all. 1 Chronicles 29:11 I write about God these days because pitying myself does me no good.  I do not want to feel sorry for myself, yet I do feel sad, deeply sorrowful.  …

There is a Plan

Have these thoughts ever crossed your mind: “Does God even know I am here?”  “Does He care about me, little me?” The great news is that He does know and He cares … all about you…all about me.  And I am not little in His mind.  I am His.  That is what matters.  I am …

Joy Abounds? Seriously?

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified.  Isaiah 61:3 On my recent visit with …

My Heart — Your Dwelling Place (a Repost)

A Repost of mine from March 19, 2017.  These words of a year and a quarter ago feel like I wrote them today: David built houses for himself in the city of David. And he prepared a place for the ark of God and pitched a tent for it.  1 Chronicles 15:1 אֹהֶל ‘ohel a …

WIDOW!  A word I have never given much thought to for myself, but the reality is that I am one now.  I saw (and sensed) …
