Great Lengths!

In those days Caesar Augustus declared that everyone throughout the empire should be enrolled in the tax lists. 2 This first enrollment occurred when Quirinius governed Syria. 3 Everyone went to their own cities to be enrolled. 4 Since Joseph belonged to David’s house and family line, he went up from the city of Nazareth in Galilee to David’s city, calledContinue reading “Great Lengths!”

When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad.

Can you see Jesus’ head?

And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say thatContinue reading “Can you see Jesus’ head?”

when will you comfort me?

My soul longs for your salvation; I hope in your word. My eyes long for your promise; I ask, “When will you comfort me?” For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke, yet I have not forgotten your statutes. How long must your servant endure?

How are you?

How many times a day are you asked this question? We are asked this question by people we love and by people we see at the gym or the grocery store or any place we might go.

The river…

The rivers lift up, the rivers lift up their voice. O jehovah! the rivers lift up their roaring Psalm 93:3 Other translations talk about the seas or the floods, it all is about water. But what is this water? Why is water important? Water is huge in our understanding of who God is and who weContinue reading “The river…”

What’s so good…

Today is Good Friday. This is the day we remember Jesus was hung on the cross and crucified. He was made to suffer through the most horrifying death imaginable after being beaten almost to death… And I ask again what’s so good about this day? The Gospel reading for today is John 18:1 – 19:42. ItContinue reading “What’s so good…”

Quiver of God!

Have you ever felt like you weren’t doing that thing that you should be doing? Thought about changing your  career? But is career in my thought is not vocation. Vocation is calling from the Latin for voice, and that is why we say that those in the “ministry” have a vocation. And in my thoughtsContinue reading “Quiver of God!”
