Watched Vs Seen

I remember a song that we sang in Bible School, "Oh be careful little eyes what you see....For the Father up above is looking down below." We didn't sing it often, but it was enough to give me spiritual paranoia. God is watching. All. The. Time. When I know I'm being watched, the walls go… Continue reading Watched Vs Seen

Psalm 40: 1-3

I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise… Continue reading Psalm 40: 1-3

Sustaining: Thankful for God

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.  Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep. Psalms 36:5-6 Six years ago, Michael and I went to Paris, France for our wedding anniversary.  I remember the first full day, we got on the metro to go to… Continue reading Sustaining: Thankful for God

Sustaining: Thankful for Hope

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.  It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus has entered on our behalf.Hebrews 6: 19-20 I like the idea of hope being an anchor, something that remains steadfast in the winds and waves of life and its cruelties. … Continue reading Sustaining: Thankful for Hope

Summer Study: Philippians 2

If you didn't read last week's start to this particular study, you can find that here. I am reminded, as I read these chapters just how much I love Philippians and how much it challenges me.  If I were to put a theme to chapter 2, it would be "It's not about you." Paul starts… Continue reading Summer Study: Philippians 2

Summer Study: Philippians 1

I completed the Ephesians study last week, so the plan is to finish the summer with a study in Philippians.  So, here's what I learned from Chapter 1. I've always loved Philippians.  Finding joy in the direst of circumstances.  Plus, the love that is shared between Paul and this church.  It's just something awesome.  Philippi… Continue reading Summer Study: Philippians 1

Summer Study: Ephesians 4

I’m studying the book of Ephesians this summer.  Click here for Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. I felt like this chapter was a transitional chapter.  Up to this point, Paul has been telling the church how rich God’s grace is.  In the first half of chapter 3, he continues this topic, but then ends the […]
