Living Amazed

From the first day of Earth to today, God has been doing amazing things in our lives. And when Jesus preached and performed miracles, the Bible frequently says the people were amazed. Each day we get up to start a new day. Each day we put our feet on the floor, have breakfast, brush ourContinue reading “Living Amazed”

Powerful Prayer

Last Christmas, my new son-in-law sat reading a large paperback book.  I asked him about it.  He introduced me to “Spurgeon On Prayer & Spiritual Warfare,” a 575-page book filled with Charles Spurgeon’s sermons on prayer.  There are prayers on why to pray, how to pray, what to pray, and even when to pray.  After skimming over my son-in-law’sContinue reading “Powerful Prayer”

God the Recycler

So here we are — Day 30 of 30 Days of Praise! And although my daily prayer praise of the Almighty doesn’t end with today, my challenge to find different ways to write about God’s amazing characteristics is complete. When I started this more than 30 days ago I was on a journey to helpContinue reading “God the Recycler”

From Master to Husband

When I was a kid one of my most favorite shows was, “I Dream of Jeannie.”  My friends and I would take turns playing the Barbara Eden character, Jeannie, and the Larry Hagman character, Tony.  Major Anthony Nelson (Tony) crash landed his space capsule on a remote beach.  He discovered a beautiful bottle and opened it.  With a puffContinue reading “From Master to Husband”

The Man With A Plan

I don’t know if you’re like me but when I go into any situation, I’m always asking, “what’s the plan?”  There’s that Martha popping up in me again!  I’m an action-oriented, goal-centered, outcome-driven creature.  That’s not bad.  Through numerous human resources training sessions I’ve come to realize the different characters in a well-oiled team.  And, as a person comfortable withContinue reading “The Man With A Plan”

Let Us Lead the Strain

Each morning I take my sweet dog Tucker out for a nice long walk.  We typically walk in the canyon near our house.  Some days I listen to worship music, some days I listen to podcasts.  While other days I make it a point to just listen.  Yesterday I decided to walk the first mile in praise and theContinue reading “Let Us Lead the Strain”

Praise At The Ready

Day 12 You never know when you will have the opportunity to share your faith.  God will place people in your lives that He wants you to share your love for Him.  We must always be ready.  And although you are not responsible for the path they eventually take, God calls us to take even the smallestContinue reading “Praise At The Ready”

The 3 O’s of God

Day 10 How often do you talk with others about your faith and God?  I once was in a Bible study where a wonderfully kind woman described talking about Jesus as an uncomfortable used car transaction.  You walk onto the lot wanting to browse and the used car salesman starts his schtick trying to get you toContinue reading “The 3 O’s of God”

Love for The King

Day 9 When we say we love God or love Jesus what does that really mean to us? For some, those words may have been only spoken in a song or recitation at church. For others those love statements are added each day to every prayer. For me, I’m really good about making sure thoseContinue reading “Love for The King”

Christ Alone –The Great I Am

Day 8 I heard this song last year at the church I was attending. It was so beautifully done I was in tears. Every time I play this song I feel so connected to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It lifts my heart. I find myself raising my hands in my car or outContinue reading “Christ Alone –The Great I Am”
