Muscle Building

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.  1 Corinthians 9:25 I’ve been a member of various gyms over the years.  Each time, after that initial enthusiasm of “this time I’m goingContinue reading “Muscle Building”

I Call Him “Lord”

From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. Isaiah 59:19  I admit it.  I have a difficult time with authority.  I don’t like being told what to do and when to do it.  I’m not sure how this developed in me.  It’s not like, as a child,Continue reading “I Call Him “Lord””

Fan The Flame

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.  2 Timothy 1:6  I remember the day I got baptized.  I was 34 years old and at the same time my one year old and 5 year old received the HolyContinue reading “Fan The Flame”

Awaken

So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake  and sober.   1 Thessalonians 5:6 I just finished a study on the book of Numbers.  It finds Israel wandering about the desert grumbling, complaining and disobeying God at every turn.  And God gives mercy over and over at Moses’ pleading.  Until He doesn’t.  There’sContinue reading “Awaken”

Eat Up His Words

When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, Lord God Almighty.   Jeremiah 15:16 I visited some friends recently outside Austin, Texas.  One day we were trying to decide where to eat for lunch and I mentioned seeing a place that served Louisana-style shrimp and crab.  My friendContinue reading “Eat Up His Words”

Time Well Spent

We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience  inherit what has been promised. Hebrews 6:12 If today’s verse sounds familiar, it should!  The King James’ version was our stepping off point for this new series – “That ye be not slothful…”  Remembering that the Greek word for slothful,Continue reading “Time Well Spent”

The Quiet Mind

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.  Exodus 14:14 I am not a “still” person.  If something feels lacking in me, I do a personal inventory and then come up with a plan to fix it.  But I finally realized that my relationship with God needed to be approached differently.  I sat on the edge ofContinue reading “The Quiet Mind”

Fresh Fire

That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12 I don’t typically pull Bible verses from the King James version.  But in one of my devotionals this version of Hebrews 6:12 was the focus of that day’s study.  It got me thinking about my own faith andContinue reading “Fresh Fire”
