WALKING IN LINE

I am always so thankful when God gives me moments like that one.  Those moments remind me of the importance of listening to the Spirit, staying in line with him, and obeying his direction. 

Good Twists and Bad Turns

This is just how life is- no one gets out of this world without twists and turns.  We can all attest that many good twists and bad turns have occurred in our life stories.  Some twists are so good that we can jump for joy, but some turns seem to generate tremendous disappointment, hurt, and sorrow. 

Overwhelmed

Ezekiel 3:15…I was overwhelmed and sat among them for seven days. Have you ever been so overwhelmed with life that all you can do is sit in stunned silence, wondering what in the world just happened?  I doubt anyone gets through life without experiencing this kind of emotional pain at least once.   Some years ago, myContinue reading “Overwhelmed”

An Assignment?

WAIT- I want “God’s sign” to me to have complete, extensive, and comprehensive meaning immediately, upfront, right away, without delay, before I take action, don’t you?

Generous Forgiveness!

In many parts of the world, open-air markets are still the primary way grain is sold.  An honest and generous merchant will take a basket, pour some grain into it, and press it down to make room for more.  He will shake the basket from side to side to help all the tiny grains fill in any air pockets.  And, then he will press it down some more, adding grain as he goes.
