The Year of Hidden Blessings

For he wounds, but he also binds up; he injures, but his hands also heal. ~Job 5:18 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17 In evaluating all that happened last year. I always appreciate the post-holiday lull that allows for more quiet reflection, even if I don't go crazy on the New Year's resolutions. I need that time to stop going, going, going, and just take a look at what God has done. In summing up this year, I'm calling it the year of hidden blessings. I know that I'm dependent on God's sustaining grace every year. All the close calls made me face "what could have happened" and

Unwrapping the Greatest Gift

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child**, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. ~Matthew 1:21-23 Gifts are certainly wonderful things. Most people love to unwrap a present and find something special inside. Can you imagine receiving a gift and failing to unwrap it? You don’t really know what you have until you take the time to check it out. I heard about a lawyer in Ohio who received a special gift by a wealth

Thanking God for What Didn't Happen

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Highest shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. ~Psalm 91:1-2 Sometimes we need to thank God for all the things that didn’t happen, for what He’s stopped that we never even knew about. We may not always see it, or feel it, we might forget it’s there at times, or even wonder if God’s left us to fend for ourselves in the heat of hard situations in life. But His protection is real. He sees what we can't see. He knows what we may not know. And if we belong to Him, we can trust, He's with us, every step, going before us, and covering our back too. Yet in a world

A Righteous Man

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repents me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. ~Genesis 6:5-8 “To me this is like the days of Noah . . . yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken . . .” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:9-10 Many people have heard the story of Noah and t

Do You Love Me?

So, when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; you know that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He said to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He said unto him, Yea, Lord; thou know that I love thee. He said unto him, Feed my sheep. He said unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou know all things; you know that I love thee. Jesus said unto him, Feed my sheep. ~John 21 15-17
