“He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. … Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. … Because you have made the Lord … even the Most High, thy habitation, there shall no evil befallContinue reading “God’s Protection in the ‘Real Life’ Zone”

Along The River — a repeat post

I have posted this poem a couple times over the years, but today I found myself reading it again and being inspired by it. It is one of my own personal favorites of the countless poems I’ve written during my life, and I just decided I WANTED to post it again. ALONG THE RIVER TheContinue reading “Along The River — a repeat post”

Prompt Nights – Poems of Healing

I hadn’t heard about the “Prompt Nights” writing challenge until this week. And when I saw the current prompt, I couldn’t resist taking part — since ministry in the area of healing is one of the things I do most. So I’m sharing a poem I actually wrote a few years go, but it fits thisContinue reading “Prompt Nights – Poems of Healing”

Epiphany: You Don’t Have to Be a Christian to Call on Jesus

Epiphany is a celebration by the Body of Christ of the revelation of Jesus Christ to the gentiles — all nations of people who are not from His own Jewish heritage. On this day, we often celebrate the arrival of the wise men from the east, who came many miles, following a great sign inContinue reading “Epiphany: You Don’t Have to Be a Christian to Call on Jesus”

‘Cameron’s Rib’ – Sneak a Peek …

Anyone trying to describe Suzanne Peterson would not have called her pretty. She stood five feet, six inches in her stockinged feet, and all of those inches were undeniably feminine. Her sculptured cheekbones and her coal black hair, which she wore in layered curls to just below her shoulders, she had inherited from her CherokeeContinue reading “‘Cameron’s Rib’ – Sneak a Peek …”

My Cadillac For Your Camel

[Haven’t had much time to blog this week, so I’ve gone back and pulled a few things from my archives that spoke to me in some particular way. This article was one of those things.] We all live by a value system of some kind. Each possession, each day, and each person in our livesContinue reading “My Cadillac For Your Camel”

Does God REALLY Care About You?

The God who took the time and effort to put so much beauty into such a tiny flower is the God who cares about every little part of you and your life. “Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God … casting the whole of your care on Him, for He cares for youContinue reading “Does God REALLY Care About You?”

Writing 201: Poetry – Day 3 — Two Trustworthy Acrostics

The word “trust” is an enormously powerful word — at least to me. It embodies a complete surrender of self-protection and puts one in a vulnerable position. As a result, I don’t trust easily. I’m grateful to say that there are a few people I feel safe in trusting, and although “few” may sound likeContinue reading “Writing 201: Poetry – Day 3 — Two Trustworthy Acrostics”

Poems of Passion Week – Day 7 – ‘The Price is Paid’

  How deep and dark the grave in which they laid the Lord. And naught to give Him hope except the Father’s Word. But ’twas enough, for God had said, “When day three comes, You’ll rise with life anew and come again to Home.” Throughout the vigil, silence reigned and men did mourn. And inContinue reading “Poems of Passion Week – Day 7 – ‘The Price is Paid’”

Poems of Passion Week – Day 6 – ‘The Reason’

                    O, Lamb of God So pure, so holy, undefiled, You came so meekly, Vulnerable, a tiny child. You took our sin And took all of its consequence. You chose the cross, And on it your lifeblood was spent. But for what cause, When tempted inContinue reading “Poems of Passion Week – Day 6 – ‘The Reason’”
