Observation

As the dogs and I were walking along, I noticed that Marci was walking differently. I picked her up and found something on the bottom of her foot that I quickly removed. Observation – paying attention – requires us to be intentional. It is necessary to be intentional to understand the needs of the people […]

As Precious As Sight

When I was young, I remember my grandfather always telling me about the need to take care of my eyes. Even after he went to be with the Lord, my grandmother reminded me of this important need. I’ll admit that sometimes we take advantage of our sight; we don’t realize how important it is to […]

All Ears

I love reading Nehemiah. It is so awesome to read of the restoration and to see the people returning to God. I cannot help but smile from ear to ear when I read about Ezra bringing forth the Law. The Bible says he read it aloud from daybreak until noon. Can you imagine that being […]

Being Faithful

We talk often about God being faithful but what about us? How can we be faithful to God? I know that God has always been and will always be faithful. I also know that I have not always been faithful. I fail Him daily. Stop Hesitating. Move forward to what God has promised. Don’t stand […]

We Will Do It

Jeremiah 42 discusses something that we can see again and again in life. The people asked Jeremiah to pray to God for them. They wanted to have their prayers answered. They told the prophet that if he would seek out the Lord for them, they would do whatever God said. The problem was when they […]

The Best Position

When you are attending a concert or watching a film, you like to get into the best position. You want to be able to hear. You want to be able to see. You aren’t too happy when the largest person in the place is seated right in front of you. You don’t like when you […]

Come and Listen

I often will call for my children. At times it is because it is time for dinner. At times it is because we are going to be leaving soon. At times it is because they have some chores to do or I have a question to ask them. Sometimes they get irritated because they have […]

Recognize and Refuse

There are moments in life when we recognize what is right but we do not always do what we should in response. We like to call it our sin nature. In Isaiah 42, it spoke of those who understood what was right but they did nothing. The people heard what they were to do, but […]

Bends Down

There was a time when it was very easy for me to bend down. After years of working in nursing and as the Rheumatoid Arthritis has become burdensome, my knees and back are not fond of the process of bending over. But still we bend over. We bend over when we need to pick up […]

With Ears Open

People like to talk. I know I talk a lot, sometimes more than I should. Solomon advised that when we “enter the house of God” we are to do two things. We are to keep our ears open and we are to keep our mouth shut. If we are not entering the house of God […]
