Our Invincible Stronghold

Proverbs 18:10 – “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.”  If you have ever played Hide-and-Seek you know that you need to be very well hidden not to be found, that there is some excitement and almost a feeling of fear (butterflies in your […]

James 1:17 – “…and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” Fact: Light is the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible.

John 1:17 – “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” If you have never lied, or broken a traffic rule, raise your hand!

God my Promise Keeper

Jeremiah 33:3 – “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” Our God is so accessible, so available, so ready to communicate and reveal unknown things to us.  He who created all things, visible and invisible, revealed and hidden – things that […]


My Keeper and Gardner

Isaiah 27:3 – “I the LORD do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.” Those who enjoy gardening know that it takes time and tender care to keep a plant growing and know the wonderful feeling when the flowers or fruits come. The […]


Our Guide and Shield

Deuteronomy 31:6 – “… for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Moving into a foreign land that we do not know, learning and speaking a new language, making new friends, can bring feelings of discomfort and even anxiety.  This is more […]
