Where Are You Going? Is Fear Preventing You From God’s Best?

Do you ever wonder where you are going? Have you been driving down the highway and talking on the phone – hands-free of course – and you missed your off-ramp? Go ahead, admit it. I’ve driven past my exit and gone a mile or so before I even noticed!

If we multitask in the fast-paced lifestyle that we live in America – so much so that we get distracted and make some wrong turns – do you suppose that we make some wrong turns in our walks with God?

We get caught up in our busyness and our problems, and sometimes we get so tired of the hustle, that we want to run away from it all.

Light in the Garden … God’s First Promise

Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent.
Psalm 104:1-2

God’s clothing is majestic and filled with splendor, like a garment of light. Imagine the sight of God walking in the Garden of Eden.

Imagine seeing God in all His majesty and splendor.

Like Isaiah, we might fall to the ground and proclaim “Woe is me!” (Isaiah 6: 5)

But Adam and Eve walked and talked with God in the cool of the evening.

What to Do In Uncertain Times

As we begin a new year and a new decade, we see uncertainty in our world, our nation, and even in our families.

Lord, are we safe? Will we have enough money? What if one of us gets sick and needs extended care? I don’t know what to do, God.

49 Years of Blessings

From the beginning of creation, “God made them male and female. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Mark 10:6-9

Wave after wave of blessings have crested, crashed, and rippled into our lives. With each new wave, we come closer to each other, moving in greater strength and love as one. Your steadfast love and care in the good times and in the troubled times have made all the difference. God has truly joined us together, and no one can separate us.

You are my thundering wave of strength, my deep water wave of hope, my ever-swirling wave of joy, and my unceasingly surging wave of love.

Thank you for 49 years of bountiful blessings that have united us forever.

I love you from the depths of my being. I am yours for all eternity,
Your Beloved

A Time for Hope

Unfortunately, some people have taken the focus off of Christmas and God’s great gift to the world. Instead of pointing people to the amazing love of God, our eyes and ears are fixed upon the sins of the world. Instead of focusing on hope, the articles direct readers and the media towards what is wrong in America. There is a time for that. This is not the time. This is the time to offer more than what this world has to give.

The Christmas season is a time to encourage men and women to consider the love that caused Jesus to shed His glory that He enjoyed in heaven to enter the world through the womb of a peasant girl.
