When Mother’s Day is Sad

But everyone has gone the wrong way. (Psalms 14:3) (ERV) (Love Ghost Stories?  Go to Creepy Reflections) My heart is relieved with the knowledge that God can bring good from chaos.  We’ve all gone the wrong way at least once in our lives; and if you’re anything like me, you’ve taken the wrong road many times…sometimes many times…

Relax in the knowledge that the One who controls your life is totally trustworthy. (Sarah Young) Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.  (Psalms 95:2) Corinne and I were blessed to be able to go to Newport, Rhode Island last weekend.  The weather was perfect,…

Co-Creators

Psalms 13:5 But I have trusted in thy mercy, my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. Trust and rejoice…David’s choice of words for today.  Trust and rejoice are active words. They insinuate we not sit idly by as our day takes form, but rather to become co-creators of our day.  Trust and rejoice, invites us…

Who’s Staring Back?

The words of the Lord are pure words:  as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.  Psalms 12:6 In ancient times silver was purified in a hot furnace.  The metal was put into a clay container and heated to extreme temperatures.  As the metal got hotter the impurities would float to the top,…

More Than a Feeling

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?  Psalms 11:3 True faith is more than a feeling.  Our feelings change but the foundation of our faith never changes.  That’s not to say we can’t change our opinions, of course we can.  I once believed drinking alcohol in any fashion was sin, but I no longer hold…

When Life Sucks, Faith Doesn’t Come Easy

I sat down to my computer, wanting to write a more upbeat blog than the last; as the last was kind of depressing.  So, I opened my Bible to Psalms chapter 10, since it’s the next chapter in our series entitled, “Walk Through Psalms.”   As I read, I began to realize chapter 10 was a…

God Has Something to Say to the Hurting

(Psalms 9/Paraphrased as if from God’s point of view)  This morning, as I read Psalms chapter 9, a message began to form in my mind.  A message, I believe, to be from God.  A message, He wants all the hurting to hear. And so as I pondered over the verses I began to read it as…

He Is Risen!

I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.  I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. Psalms 9:1-2 Forever To Thee Oh Lord, my God, Oh bless this day! When in death you arose triumphant…away!…

How Majestic is Your Name

Psalms 8 In song… O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!  Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.  When I consider Your…

Knowing The Enemy

Psalms 7:1-2 O Lord my God, in You I take refuge; Save me and rescue me from all those who pursue me, So that my enemy will not tear me like a lion, Dragging me away while there is no one to rescue [me]. In any battle it is advantageous to know your enemy.  In…
