Chosen to speak

But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference He made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted. 1 Peter 2:9-10 (MSG) AsContinue reading “Chosen to speak”

love letter to the Beloved

Beloved, yes, I mean you. Please look at me. I am inviting you to come out of hiding and enter My embrace just as you are. My love for you?

naturally caffeinated

I am a rarity amongst most of my family & friends. I don’t need to do coffee or tea to wake up in the morning. I like to think of myself as naturally caffeinated, which is another way of saying I am wide eyed & bushy tailed from the moment I get up. I don’tContinue reading “naturally caffeinated”

called to go, do or be?

We were, and are, all called for a purpose. Typically, most of us (myself included) tend to think of this call only as an action. We are to go out & make disciples in all nations. Absolutely. We miss the key point when it becomes about where we go and what we are doing. WeContinue reading “called to go, do or be?”

A line…

We spend a great deal of time in a line. Image from: http://www.640toronto.com/files/2014/07/lineUp1.jpg At the grocery store, bank, registration, movie theater or fast food place… like sheep, we automatically join the cue and wait our turn. In Old Testament days, this even happened in the temple: lining up to enter, especially on holy days. LiningContinue reading “A line…”

when is more enough?

Why do we always want more? To do more? Be more? Acquire more? When does NOT desiring more, being content with: who we are what we do what we have become enough? My husband is brilliant in his chosen field. He cares for each client in such a way that years later, these clients orContinue reading “when is more enough?”
