Little Warriors for Jesus

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight.” -EE Cummings       My 7-year-old grandson, Luca, has been unusually curious about Jesus since he was 3 or 4 years old. One […]

Tearing off the Bark

     For you reach into my heart. (“You have ravished my heart) With one flash of your eyes I am undone by your love, my beloved, my equal, my bride. You leave me breathless—I am overcome by merely a glance from your worshiping eyes, for you have stolen my heart. I am held hostage by […]

What is Good?

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28      When things do not go well; the diagnosis comes, the job doesn’t, the child is wandering, that’s when many pull this comforting scripture passage out of their back pockets. I […]

“You did it to Me”

“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:31-40      The woman in charge of the Prison Ministry at church told me that she had a prisoner who would like someone to correspond with. I came to her mind and […]

Lukewarm no more!

I see the Church in America as a lot like the Church in Laodicea; lukewarm. I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I […]

“Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name” -Matthew 6:9      I find myself reflecting over the past year today. It has been a year like no other, in my life at least. I keep hearing the same phrases from other people about how this has been a crazy year, a horrible […]

Pondering my Breakfast

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world […]
