I grew up going to Sunday School and memorizing Bible verses. Perhaps many of you can relate. And when I learned each verse, I understood it with a child’s understanding. As I got older, I made the mistake of thinking that I understood various verses without digging more in depth to see if there was… Read More What is the Beginning of Wisdom?
Accusing and debasing words only have power over us if we let them. I reject those labels and accusations.
They are not helpful for the furthering of the kingdom of God.… Read More Rejecting Labels
Today I am happy. It’s been a great Thanksgiving weekend! After so many months of struggle and waiting for answered prayers, feeling like I’m drowning in a sea of impossible problems, the Lord has graciously opened the curtain just a little bit to let in some light and whisper a little bit of how He… Read More God is in the Process of Answering Prayer
Today I thought I’d mix it up a bit. Sometimes, when we want to worship God, it seems like there is something in the way. I’ve made up a sample prayer of confession and used it for a long time; going through this prayer helps me without fail to return to that open communication with… Read More Confession is Part of Worship
I stand in the the midst of deep darkness. But I am not in the darkness myself. The LORD is my light. He cuts through the inky darkness from high above me, shining like a brilliant shaft of clean, white light, like a spotlight from heaven that does not diminish in its intensity as it… Read More God is De-Light-ful
Have you ever found yourself saying something like this: Crumbs don’t have any calories. Hahaha (as you eat them). I know this junk food is bad for me, but doesn’t God want us to enjoy ourselves? One little puff won’t hurt. If I say I’m sorry, they’ll take advantage of me. If I confess that… Read More What God thinks about Rationalizing
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve always thought of dog lovers as being the type of people who love to be with dogs, who snuggle with dogs, and some who even want to have lots of dogs. But I’ve discovered that there’s a different kind of dog lover. We have a dog because my… Read More Dog Lovers

Today an old, unwelcome acquaintance came to visit and brought along some of his unwelcome buddies. I’m going to call them self-pity, hurt feelings, rejection, lies, slow burn, unforgiveness, blindness, and unthankfulness. They all ganged up on me after I spent some time with a large group of people, most of whom made me feel… Read More Overcoming self-pity, hurt feelings, and rejection
Hello, friends! Welcome to another week of Worship with me! I invite you again today to join me in this prayer of praise to our God! Thank you, Lord, that You place great worth on us!

“Lord, I just can’t hang on another minute!” Yes, my child, oh yes you can. Just reach out and take My hand; Watch that minute stretch like a rubber band.” The minute becomes a week, a year. In circumstances I thought I couldn’t bear, He came down and held me near, Whispered softly in my… Read More Stretching Time
As we drove down the straight, two-lane highway in northeast Colorado…. I wish I could say that we saw the majestic snow-capped mountains in the distance and describe the lush colors that surrounded us, but that’s just not the case! Northeast Colorado is a high-altitude plain, and when the end of November comes, there isn’t… Read More Finding God
