move on or love up on – the crossroads we all face

We each face a crossroads when confronted with a situation, person or comment which is unexpected, uncalled for or unwanted. We can choose to ask God what to do, or take matters into our own hands. There are times when God does call us to turn the other cheek, forgive and move on. There areContinue reading “move on or love up on – the crossroads we all face”

when our walk can speak louder than our talk

There are times when the walls are meant to come down, and God wants us to know it is because of who He is, not due to the works of our hands. Dive into Joshua with me, and take a peek at the battle for Jericho with me today. In Joshua 6, we meet upContinue reading “when our walk can speak louder than our talk”

turn Him loose

Turn me loose, turn me loose, I gotta do it my way or no way at all… -Loverboy, 80s & 90s rock band When the road gets tough, our reactions reveal what is under the surface within us. There are three ways we respond when the storms are swirling and the waters rising… 1. WeContinue reading “turn Him loose”

food for thought

There have been two occasions where people specifically listened to God and acted upon it, where the result ended up with my family being fed. When our children were quite small, circumstances left us tighter than usual for money with sick (a la chicken pox) children at home.  With about $50 to our name, weContinue reading “food for thought”

the straw that loosened my tongue

I have a confession to make. After a particularly long & hot day at my far away job, hubby was chatting with me in the car as we headed home.  I was hangry, and looking back, just ready to blow. Hubby shared about an email he got from a friend who is all riled upContinue reading “the straw that loosened my tongue”

when the road seems too long…the wise men

As long as the road would have seemed to Joseph & Mary, there were those on a quest who took even longer to arrive in Bethlehem. After Jesus was born in Bethlehem village, Judah territory— this was during Herod’s kingship—a band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East. They asked around, “Where can weContinue reading “when the road seems too long…the wise men”
