Trees Walking

Mark 8:24 And he looked up and said, ” I see people but they look like trees walking.”

This man could begin to see once Jesus Christ prayed but he didn’t really know what he was looking at. We can’t know if what he lacked was focus, depth perception or if he was simply confused. We are all sometimes a bit like him. We are beginning to walk in some new opportunity, ministry or relationship but in spite of the excitement of the moment we still are stumbling over our own feet. We see people but not as God sees them. Tonight rather than being discouraged we need to go back to the Lord. Yes He has begun the blessings but He isn’t through yet. Take this moment to place again into His hands what He has begun and He himself will give us His own 20/20 heavenly vision!

The Promises of God

For all the promises of God find their yes in Him. That is why it is through Him that we utter our amen to God for His glory. 2 Corinthians 1:20


Centuries have passed and undefeated armies have been laid in their graves. Kings and tyrants have written their names on cities and empires whose languages are  now forgotten. The most fragrant rose, the most brilliant butterfly, the breathtaking beauty of fall leaves each have their small moment and then are gone. But God who called light from the darkness and breathed his life into man has promises that stand unshakable in every storm.

Our greatest hope in this day of fear and change is in the God who always keeps his promise and never abandons his own!

I Wake in the Morning Early

Earlier this year I shared a Rose Fyleman poem that I had set to music for a lullaby to our small children to which I added two verses and a chorus. I was so happy and surprised to see the number of people who seemed to enjoy this children’s song. Besides the U.S. and Canada,we had viewers in France, Libya, Australia and the Philippines. So here is a slightly better though not professional recording with a slide show. I pray you will be blessed.

My Song of Life

 

IMG_3612One prayer that I have

That I ask Jesus for

Is that He will help me to sing

As I face every storm

That when waves wind and fear

Try to drown my small boat

That my voice will be strong

And my heart stays on note

 

 

That my ears will be open

To hear angels sing

To the Lamb on the throne

Our Heavenly KingKIMG0363

Then with hands lifted up

And my heart for His ways

I will give Him my soul

As my gift of praise

 

Then to the verse that beganKIMG2253

Way back at the start

When I first trusted Jesus

And He entered my heart

Is added a chorus

And a bridge that can reach

Over darkness and storm

To the place at His feet

 

P1010574Where my breath becomes His

When my work here is done

And I finish the verse

That on earth I’ve begun

And I lift up my voice

In a loud joyful song

May my last verse be finished

                                                                                                                  At my Father’s throne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your Life is a Letter!

The only letter of recommendation we need is you yourselves. Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you.           2 Corinthians 3:2

Did you ever stop to think that your life is a blog with a new page written daily by someone. If our hearts are open to God’s word then we are giving the Holy Spirit editorial permission to correct a few lines. His revisions sometimes seem painful and a few of His twists and turns of the plot difficult to understand, but He knows precisely how our story needs to flow.

P1010591

He writes from the opening paragraph to the denouement a love letter for our souls. God sent His own Son to die for our rescue and He knows how from our sunrise to the end of our day how things will work together for our good. When we trust the scenes of our lives into the hand of the master director nothing short of a masterpiece will result as our names are written into the book of life!

From the Rising of the Sun

That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting That there is none besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other Isaiah 45:6

P1010575

In the moment of deepest worship when no words can express the glory of God’s presence we come to the truth at the sun’s rising that there is no one else besides Him!
