Who Are We To Love?

Lord, what are human beings that you care for them, mere mortals that you think of them? Psalms 144:5 As I found myself in Psalms today 144:5 leaped out at me. I couldn’t help but to appreciate these humble words written by David. Our finite lives may be something easy to comprehend as working classContinue reading “Who Are We To Love?”

While We Wait

Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay in Habakkuk 2:3 I’ll be honest, I’ve never taken the time to read Habakkuk before. In fact its such a small book in the Bible I wouldn’t blame anyone for not even knowing they flipped past it before. I do believe,Continue reading “While We Wait”

A God Sense of Humor

In his world the playground was his kingdom and he ruled over the empty swings that creaked in the wind. Though heContinue reading “The Splinter”

In The Moment

“I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn over what is going to happen to me, but the world will rejoice. You will grieve, but your grief will suddenly turn to wonderful joy. John 16:20 There is something to be said about how much time Jesus invested preparing His disciples for what wasContinue reading “In The Moment”
