The Lord suggested that having eyes and not seeing was not a good thing, however SEEING is not as simple as you might think and has very little to do with my eyes and much more to do with my heart. It stands to reason that the closer my perception of reality is to the […]
God commands me to examine myself, to let ALL scripture reprove me, to ask God to search my heart, to let the iron of his word and faithful friends’ reproof sharpen my iron. Do I really want to be a sharp sword in his hands? Then I must have frequent sharpening. All scripture will first […]
Lois and I recently lost three family members, a beloved aunt of Lois’ went to be with the Lord. I lost and aunt and Lois lost a brother to cancer. Although it is hard to have someone die, especially when not very old, there is great comfort if we know for sure that they had a […]
What would you do if no one had any idea who you were and there was no chance of them finding out? I’ve always been told that this would be the test of who I really am and what I really want. It used to be that we grew up in the same town we […]

I SHALL NOT WANT?
Either God’s promises are true or he is a liar and he claims to be unable to lie. A friend recently texted that she loves Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ, who strengtheneth me. Still, she has trouble with Psalms 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want, (Presumably because […]
