Fire Hazard

It was a morning filled with the chaos of snow. For those who love snow, I’m sure they were enjoying the white fluffy madness. I’ll admit it looked beautiful on the trees; however, I am more thankful for the arrival of spring. I’ve never been a big fan of snow. Driving in the snow is […]

Trouble is with Me

We do not like to admit we are wrong. Accepting blame is difficult. In today’s passage, Paul notes that he is a slave to sin. He says, “The trouble is with me.” This is the place each of us must come to at some point in life. Some will agree that “the trouble is with […]

Forever in Your Sanctuary

Dead End or God Delight

“A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way.” It is possible. There’s no 12 step program, no self improvement book, no quick fix. Today’s passage speaks of the “delight of listening to God telling you.” There’s always a choice. God’s delight or a dead end. I have […]

With Hesitation

Many people can remember Lot’s wife getting turned into a pillar of salt in Genesis 19, as God was destroying Sodom and Gomorrah. We cannot only consider Lot’s wife looking back, showing that she could not leave her sin behind. We also need to note the hesitation of Lot. He was commanded to leave with […]
