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...

 

Why?

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance. ~ Ps. 42:5 Why? This small word is reasonable and searching. Often asked, demanding much and...

Light it up

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all - 1 John 1:5 In a world so seemingly complicated, dark, contentious and twisted by hatred towards one another…I want to take...

 

Image of God

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God, He created him; male and female He created them. – Gen. 1:27 What does it mean when the Bible tells us we are created in the image of God (Latin: Imago Dei)? Are we gods? Exact replicas,...

 

Ask the question(s)

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Matt. 16:15 So many questions and so much time. We tend, bend and spend towards little purposeful living, with tremendous expectations of our...

 

Quick or deep?
