What do you mean, it’s not about ME?!

Several years back, I did a Beth Moore Bible study called, The Inheritance. The theme verses were Psalms 16:5-6. That psalm was central to last week’s blog. Long before I participated in that study, I studied the inheritance of the Israelites in the promised land. I looked into that over a decade ago, because of... Continue Reading →

I Cannot Be Trusted

Since dumping cable, I have become an avid YouTube viewer. My diverse list of subscriptions includes airline pilots, historians, and dairy farmers. I don’t know how my sister and I first came across the dairy farming vlogs, but we have been following a couple of them for about a year. My favorite part of these... Continue Reading →

Under the Banner of His Love

Recently, a song came to mind that I sang in Sunday School when I was a child. At the time I didn’t know that the song, “His Banner Over Me is Love,” came from Song of Solomon. I learned this reading that book of the Bible as an adult. I think this song popped into... Continue Reading →

Before the election, Piper published a blog that broke my heart. It affected my respect for him as a teacher of God’s Word.... Continue Reading →

Life Happens. . .God is Good

When I left for work on February 4th, I had plans to spend my lunch break working on the draft of my blog for the coming Saturday. But before my lunch break came, a call from my mother redirected all of my thoughts and energy. A scheduled test showed that my father needed bypass surgery,... Continue Reading →

A Divided Heart

It is interesting to me how different organs of the body became associated with parts of the human psyche. Really, it is all happening in the brain. If I say that my heart is divided, everyone understands that it is actually my mind that is being pulled in two different directions. God should be the... Continue Reading →
