The book of Hebrews tells me that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen, and although I heartily accept the badge that denotes me as a person of faith I have to be honest and admit that just like most of us, my faith tank needs topping off … More Faith
Restoration sounds so peaceful and tranquil. It’s what we hope, seek, and pray for. Restoration is good and we should want it. It is an important aspect to our walk as Christians and it comes in many forms. We desire to be restored to God, to be restored to our families, to be restored in … More The Violence of Restoration
The other day, I was moving firewood from the backyard to our patio so we would have some dry firewood for this chilly weekend. As I was moving, of course I got a splinter in my thumb immediately. It was just a small piece sticking out and, after a couple of patient minutes, I pulled … More Splinters
This has just been one of those seasons where it has been one thing after another. With each challenge that has presented itself, I have been able to hand it over to God and trust…..mostly. There is still that little part of me that has found it easy to trust because I have mentally assessed … More When It is Not Well with Your Soul

I have promises and prophetic words some as old as 20 years and some only a few months that I have not yet seen come. I sometimes grow weary in the waiting … More Are You Waiting for a Promise?

All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them.
