The Open Bible

I sat at my kitchen table and opened my Bible to search for a specific passage. That was months ago. That same Bible has remained open on the kitchen table ever since. I remember hearing about families from decades ago who would have a Bible sitting on their coffee table, in full sight (in fact,… Continue reading The Open Bible

Do You Give Love a Bad Name?

I had an interesting experience recently. Out of the blue, song lyrics to a very random song came in my head. I don't listen to this genre of music very often, and I hadn't heard this song in many years.

This is an Opportunity.

The world is collectively suffering right now. Some areas more than others, or in different ways than others. There is panic. I don't think I need to mention why, because we probably hear the word 100 hundred times a day already. It incites anxiety, fear, and maybe depression. It leads many to look out for… Continue reading This is an Opportunity.

Their Prayers Gave Me a Push!

Huge changes and decisions were on the horizon. They had been decisions which had been coming for a long time, but were still a struggle to make. Even the wonderful things in life can cause stress, uncertainty, and questioning. People whom I hadn't spoken to in years emailed and called me.

He’s Not Done Yet.

"You have a purpose right where you are." The speaker spoke with conviction and seemed to look directly at me. "Bloom where you are." His words sank in, and I knew the Lord was speaking to me. There were times at that point when I had second thoughts about where I was, and thought that… Continue reading He’s Not Done Yet.
