Well, how have you been, friend?  I hope your new year has started out well.  This year’s beginning has proven to be something over here.  In a couple days time earlier this month I found myself with 3 new people looking to work with me.  I had already been working with 2 people leaving last… Continue Reading

Our Shield and Great Reward

Our Shield and Great Reward

Today I am sharing with you some insight from Henry Morris’ book The Genesis Record.  His commentary on the story that ends chapter 14 of Genesis and begins chapter 15 includes a train of thought that blew me away.  I hope you are as amazed by this as I am today.

Nothing is Wasted, by Jason Gray

I heard this song, Nothing Is Wasted by Jason Gray, and it was just so comforting to know that nothing- good or bad, personal pain or pleasure, world catastrophe, etc- is wasted in the hands of our Redeemer. The events of our life are like puzzle pieces to the big picture that only God can… Continue Reading

Footprints in the Sand

In my last post, I referred back to the Footprints poem.  This poem has encouraged me many times through dark and difficult paths.  It is amazing to me how things that are so common can be so incredible meaningful when you stop and really take them in.  So here is a chance to really take… Continue Reading
