It may be something such as starting a diet, a budget or a changing careers. However, ourContinue reading “Follow Through!”

Open Your Eyes!

So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.” Mark 10:51 NKJV I was standing in faith for God’s provision but couldn’t see how He would solve a particular problem.

Storm Watch!

Weed Control!

Weeds come in endless varieties and thrive in the most extreme conditions. How is it that weeds grow with little effort when what I actually plant takes forever to grow? Jesus illustrated a great parable in chapter thirteen in the book of Matthew. This story is about a farmer whose enemy sowed tares (weeds) amongContinue reading “Weed Control!”

Soar!

Unlike this butterfly struggling against the breeze, I spotted a hawk soaring high on those same winds. Hawks trust the breezes to lift them higher. No GPS or google maps, they just stretch their wings and go! The higher we want to go, the more we must trust God to take us there. Small things weContinue reading “Soar!”

Getting Through to Get To…

Moses led the Israelites through the Red Sea before they were free from Egypt. Joshua led the same people through the wilderness before they saw the Promised Land.

Look for Your Cloud!

Like many people, I’ve a few areas in my life that are a bit…dry. One in particular is quite crispy. Crisss-pee! My “situation” soured and then died years ago, yet for one reason or another the last nail was never placed in its coffin. I was illegally “wronged,” tried to muddle through, then eventually gave “it”Continue reading “Look for Your Cloud!”
