The thin man

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord – 1 Cor. 15:58 As many know and many more do not, at the end of June 2023 my family and I will...

Front to Back Pt. 2

These are good reminders to keep us living and moving in a world filled with both brokenness and beauty. Only through God and a Biblical Worldview (foundation to hang and sift life through) can people reconcile the evil in the world and the goodness...

Weary

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9 We all have been tired and exhausted or soon will be. Weariness is a state of being that although is not uncommon, is never intended...

Hold

Take firm (strong) hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life (Prov. 4:13). There are certain things in life that are good to hold on to. They are helpful, hopeful and heartful. The Bible is very good at showing what to...

 

Good

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart (Heb. 6:9). Good. A sufficient and solid word that often gets lost in settling for less or demanding more. Humanity finds trouble in thinking God...

 

Truth

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” – John 14:6 Truth. Not something we desire it to be or can fabricate on our own. It is the necessity of living from and for, yet many...

 

Existence

“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” (Rev. 4:11) Existence. Life, reality, presence, subsistence, actuality. It is not something that is...

 

Versed

There are roughly over 31,100 verses in the Bible and of those I do have a few favorites or “life verses.” I never set out to make this list, they found me and took off the “rough edges” in my soul. A few of my favorites in no particular...

 

Keys

I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death – Rev. 1:18 Keys are important. They are essential to both opening and closing. Be it a door, concept or heart. The following are...

 

Wisdom

Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore, get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding – Prov. 4:7. Wisdom. Skill. The key to knowledge (facts); understanding (insight); and instruction (discipline). It is the voice of God and the answer...

Loving

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love (1 John 4:8). It should be immediately noticed from the above verse who God is. He is love. On its own, humanity cannot sufficiently classify the totality of HIS love. This only comes...

Freedom

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32). Freedom: autonomy, self-determination, independence, choice. All very desirable and rightly so, yet wrongly applied to the hurt of self and many. Freedom is recognizing...

Weary indifference

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Gal. 6:9 Life gets weary. Tiring, wiping or wearing one out. The resulting disillusionment and jadedness can sap and exhaust an individual,...

 

Postscript

Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him – Prov. 30:5 Postscript. Better known as “P.S.”, a postscript is used when someone wants to add information at the end of a letter or email. These are often...

 

Places

He makes my feet like the feet of deer and sets me on my high places. Ps. 18:33 All of us go places. The kitchen, store, post office, someone’s house or on vacation. It is coming or going, for better or worse. What often gets lost in the going...

 

Seriously?!,.

I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore, choose life, that both you and your descendants may live. Dt. 30:19 It is interesting how words and statements significantly convey greater meaning and importance by adding a...

 

Adoption

Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will. (Ephesians 1:5) Many people, without thinking much about it, make a wide distinction between adopted children and “real” children,...

 

Purpose

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end – Ecl. 3:11 There exists purpose in life. This is not found in a procedure but...

 

Light

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. ~ Gen. 1:3-4 Light. The first thing God created and placed over the earth and declared good....

 

A new "normal"

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Gen. 1:1) NORMAL: Conforming to a standard, pattern, level or type. Considered usual, typical and routine. We’ve heard a lot about returning to a new normal post COVID-19. Whatever that is,...

 

Hope

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. – 1 Cor. 13:13 As we know, see and live, when there is no hope, when all is hopeless, nothing fits together....

 

Puzzling

I like to put puzzles together, it’s something I do. When all the pieces come out of the box, very little looks much like anything, yet it is all something. The relaxing effort of taking each individual piece and placing into its proper place speak...

 

It

“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). IT: A pronoun used to refer to that one previously mentioned. We are often told in this world to get with it. A movie has been made named “IT”,...

 

Simple?

The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. ~ Ps. 116:6 Is anything in life simple? The answer is no and yes. The world, in general, is not an easy place. Since the fall in...

 

I never

I will never forget Your precepts, for by them You have given me life. – Psalm 119:93 Life is filled with many different experiences and observations. There is a vastness to investigate, and...
