The main Person . . .
There are biblical truths that I know as I read, reread
and hear them but unless they are right in my face, my thoughts seldom go
there. I’m convicted by the words of John the Baptist who said, “He must
increase but I must decrease.” Jesus is more significa...

Unwrapping my gift then giving it away
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another,
as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks
oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God

DIY Christianity?
Tozer’s words for this day seem a bit of a rant. I
understand his indignation at the Christian standards of our day. I agree that
we need higher goals and deeper lives of faith. I’ve always thought it is ‘better to aim at the stars and hit the

bored. I’m also somewhat lazy. Short-term tasks are not a problem. Even
breaking down a larger one is helpful as long as ...

Consequences
Today’s devotional makes me think about consequences,
cause and effect, and the spiritual laws that God has created. As the Bible
says, we reap what we sow. But how does that work? I know people who do whatever they
please and never seem to face consequence...

Pulling out the roots . . .
I’m still thinking about the person who grumbled and
criticized to the point I felt battered by negativity. This morning I began to
question my own faith. However, the Holy Spirit is reminding me of the promises
of God and how much He has done in my life. “...

Good growing conditions
We have just come through an unusual heat wave. Yesterday
the high was 37C; today it is supposed to be 14C. Our air conditioner ran all
day yesterday and this morning my hubby joked that we needed to turn on the heat. I looked outside. Rain had fallen durin...

Gifted by God
Many years ago my sister went to a seminar on spiritual
gifts. She shared with me what she learned and it became my focus for a time. I’ve
taught several seminars, church leaders and individuals the principles that I
learned. While some lump all these gifts...
