Is God Silent To You?

“I will be still, and I will behold in my dwelling place. “ Isa. 18:4 Assyria was marching against Ethiopia, the people of which are described as tall and smooth. And as the armies advance, God makes no effort to arrest them; it seems as though they will be allowed to work their will. He … Continue reading

The Supremacy of Christ

I want to put it down right here that I have certainly “tasted the joy.” I cannot imagine a more wonderfully blessed life than mine. Faithfulness of a loving Father-that’s what I’ve found, every day of every week of every year, and it gets better. Continue reading

God Meant It Unto Good

(Gen. 5:20) “God meant it unto good”-O blest assurance, Falling like sunshine all across life’s way, Touching with Heaven’s gold earth’s darkest storm clouds, Bringing fresh peace and comfort day by day ‘Twas not by chance the hands of faithless bretheren Sold Joseph captive to a foreign land; Now was it chance which, after years … Continue reading

What-iffing

What-iffing not only zaps our energy, it also indicates a lack of trust in God’s wise and loving control over our affairs. He who cares to number every hair on our heads-something not even the vainest of us bothers to do-cares much more about our trusting him with the upkeep of our homes, our health, … Continue reading

Thoughts This Christmas

I got off the phone with my mom. Put my cell down and started to cry. Due to finances and work schedule, I had just made the decision to not go home for Christmas. This was going to be my first Christmas EVER without my parents. Needless to say, I wasn’t happy with this prospect. … Continue reading

Hope In The Pilot

Our voyage through life will sometimes be incommoded by storms, but the Lord Jesus is an infallible, almighty Pilot. The winds and the seas obey him. None ever miscarried under his care; and he takes charge of all who entrust themselves to him. – John Newton This quote resonates in my heart today. It pains … Continue reading

Upwards

Look up towards heaven. Remember that your everlasting rest is there. Meditate on its wonder and reality. Rise from sense to faith, by comparing heavenly with earthly joys, until you are transformed from a forgetful sinner, and a lover of the world, to an ardent lover of God. Meditate on heaven until you are changed … Continue reading

Preach Truth

I am a very visual person. So, I find it very helpful to have visual reminders of Gospel truth. It helps me to preach to myself more than listen to myself (something my analytical mind  does oh so often!). This is the current truth I’m preaching to my soul…

Pleasant Places

The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. Ps. 16:5-6 When I graduated from high school I had to submit a “life verse” for the ceremony. I chose Psalm 16:5-6. I was thinking back to … Continue reading

Fully Trust His Word

at one stage of Christian experience we cannot believe unless we have some sign or some great manifestation of feeling. we feel our fleece, like Gideon, and if it is wet we are willing to trust God. this may be true faith, but it is imperfect. it always looks for feeling or some token beside … Continue reading

So I Will Trust In You

Words and Music by Stephen Altrogge O Lord, You care for all the earth The flowers and the birds You provide their daily bread How much more You have cared for me You’ve met my greatest need When Christ hung on the tree So I know that You’ll provide for me So God I trust … Continue reading

Trust

Trust is not a passive state of mind. It is a vigorous act of the soul by which we choose to lay hold on the promises of God and cling to them despite the adversity that at times seeks to overwhelm us. -Jerry Bridges

God Is Never Capricious

Having smiled upon these people, it looked as if without any apparent cause or reason he was now frowning upon them, and on the point of destroying them. Circumstances often seem to give us that impression. Everything suddenly seems to go wrong and to be working in the revers direction, and the suggestion comes to … Continue reading

Cloudy Path?

Ever had times that feel like your walk with Christ is a journey full of clouds and storms? You know, those seasons where you really just don’t understand what God is doing, why He is doing it, and how in the world it can be for your good? I’ve had many such seasons in my … Continue reading
