Revisiting the Hill Country, Revisiting the Promise

Just returned from a weekend in the Texas Hill Country, as Susan and I celebrated our 41st anniversary. I love that place!  The beautiful scenery, the rolling hills, the quiet, the German food…well, all the food. It’s just a great place to go back to rest and clear your mind. Well, and the food…but I digress. […]

A Generation from Alcatraz

“I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” Deuteronomy 5:9, 10 NKJV It’s at a distance from me, across the […]

Always a Step Ahead

No doubt any believer would quickly “Amen” that God is there first.  Whether it’s a “before you call I will answer” or a study on prevenient grace or that marvelous declaration in Romans of His love for us “while we were yet sinners”, a student of the Word easily accepts God’s initiatory behavior.  That, ours […]

That “still in process” Thing

“Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone…in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.”  Ephesians 2:20,22 Getting from here to there in life, and I don’t mean geographically, both captivates the optimist and dissuades the pessimist. If I’m […]

A Code for the Road

“Even if I should receive a thousand pieces of silver in my hand, I would not put out my hand against the king’s son.” 2 Samuel 18:12a  Righteousness is quickly losing its definition. Like so many words in our English language, it has come to be a self-parody. If one is righteous, they must be self-righteous, […]

I Had a Dream (the tragedy of losing what you once hoped for)

“Then David said in his heart, ‘Now I shall perish one day by the hand of Saul.  There is nothing better for me that than I should escape to the land of the Philistines.’” 1 Samuel 27:1 Hardly anyone has never had a dream. A hope for something better, something that would take their life up, […]

Healing Collateral Wounds

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” Psalm 147:3 Just because the battle quiets, the war may not have ended; though the last shot may have been fired, the torn flesh may still ache. I recently met a young woman who was able, with the courageous intervention of others, to escape an abusive […]

What Do I Really Want?

“What do you want Me to do for you?” and he said, “Lord, I want to regain my sight.” Luke 18:41  Church signs always arrest my attention, and of course, they are so designed.  I carefully examine each one I drive by, and more often than not, shudder at the message being posted.  I’m sure they […]
