How Many Sins Are Too Many?

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23   “But God showed  HIS great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners” Romans 5:8   “If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and […]

WALKING IN MEMPHIS

“I will destroy the idols and put an end to the images in Memphis…” (Ezek 30:13) I recently ran the St. Jude Half Marathon.   As I ran along the river pounding the pavement to my iPod on random shuffle, I was blessed by the song “Fields of Grace”.  I looked up to the heavens […]

Email To the Physician

  I wish that I could say that this was a deep letter that I wrote to The Great Physician but it is not,  although I pray everything I do is for HIS Glory.  This is the actual email that I sent to my mom’s oncologist.  As I wrote the letter,  I realized it was […]

Trash for Glory

Phil 3:8-“What is more, I continue to consider all these things to be a loss for the sake of what is far more valuable, KNOWING THE MESSIAH, JESUS , MY LORD!  It is because of HIM that I have experienced the loss of all those things.  Indeed, I consider them rubbish in order to gain […]

Hospital Hope

1 Cor 1:3-4-“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” For all of you who have spent […]

FULL HANDS/FLAT KNEES

Ephesians 3:14 (The Message) “My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth.”   On a mission trip to Kenya this past summer I experienced God in some of the most precious and unique ways.  I had the blessing of being the […]

UNWRITTEN

Ephesians 2:10-“For we are God’s masterpiece.  HE has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things HE planned for us long ago.” (NLT translation)   I kept searching the internet for a cool colorful background for this blog but never found exactly what I wanted.  It dawned on me that […]

Show and Tell

Psalm 145:4-“Generation to generation they will tell YOUR works and they will show YOUR heroism.” (Aramaic Bible in plain English translation)   We influence those around us whether we like it or not.  We are leaving a legacy and the beauty of knowing that is that we can be intentional about what we want that […]

WHO DO YOU WALK WITH?

“Noah, however, found favor in the sight of the Lord.  These are the family records of Noah.  Noah was a righteous man, blameless among his contemporaries; NOAH WALKED WITH GOD.” (Genesis 6:8-9) When watching a high school football game, even if I can not see the number on his jersey, I can tell which player […]

It must be “That Jesus”

It is important to say at the beginning of this Blogging/Journaling Journey for 2013 that anything written that is “good stuff”(that which makes you want to roll around in the WORD and curl up in Jesus lap) must be from “That Jesus”. Anything written that is just plain weird or stupid is all me:). HE […]
