Choose

Choose

Love can’t be bargained or negotiated for. It isn’t something you can haggle over in a contract. It isn’t even something you can buy. One must choose to give their love away.  Do we know this? Oh…yes, we say we do and in our minds we do, but what about in that little part of … Continue reading

Need To Be Rescued

Need To Be Rescued

Eve plucked that fruit from that limb, slipped it ever so slowly into her mouth, and took that faithful bite…paradise was lost! Sin slithered into her soul and made its home within. Every generation thereafter was destined to inherited her sin nature. The ugliness of sin poured onto the earth and tainted all beneath its … Continue reading

Humility

Humility

How do we clothe ourselves in humility? How do we put on humility when we live in a world that applauds rising to the top, winning, and being the best–climbing the ladder to stardom?   “Nothing sets a person so much out of the devil’s reach as humility.” –Jonathan Edwards We begin telling our children almost … Continue reading

Five Minute Friday – Small

Five Minute Friday – Small

I’m linking up with Five Minute Friday today. One writes for five minutes–unedited–about one word. Today’s word is small. He must increase, but I must decrease.

Testing Of Your Faith Produces Steadfastness

Testing Of Your Faith Produces Steadfastness

Last night the wind howled like an angry lion, whipping snow this way and that ironing out footprints, animal tracks, and tire marks until the snow was as smooth as a frozen pond. Imperfections gone, rough patches removed, and ruts erased. When the wintery white once again looked like icing on a cake–pristine and white–temperatures … Continue reading

Enough

Enough

Winter has been throwing a temper fit since December. We here in Ohio are in the middle of an ice/snow storm as we speak. I find God’s wintery creations stunning–I have yet to grow tired of the snowy landscape. I know, however, that I am in the minority. Flip on the evening news and I … Continue reading

Have You Ever Looked Pain In The Eye?

Have you ever looked pain in the eye? Without a doubt you have–this brokenness that hides, but becomes visible in one’s eyes.

A is for Accountability

A is for Accountability

Accountability, it’s a fairly simple phenomena, take responsibility for ones actions, but for many it can be as difficult as climbing Mount Everest. Rather than owning up to ones mistakes, failures, and flaws it’s often easier to shift the blame to someone or something else.  Other times it’s simpler to act as if no wrong … Continue reading
