The Importance of Being Still – part 2

The Importance of Being Still – part 2

Last week, I wrote about the importance of being still before God. How, in stillness, we can know Him better and hear his voice above the noisy world in which we live. I even did a quick word study about the root of the Hebrew word harpu mentioned in Psalm 46:10, for you other “word-nerds” … Continue reading

God Can Be Known {Learning from Job, Post 6}

In the last post in this Job series, I wrote about the Bad Theology of a Few Good Friends.  Job’s three friends Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar were well-meaning, but had some basic theology quite wrong.  It’s almost enough to make one wonder, is it so easy to get it wrong? Can we get it right? … Continue reading

He Hears… He Sees (Glorious Grace Fridays)

  God is perfectly attentive to every detail and  in orchestrating things in the unseen realm. He watches us pray… and hears us!

The Soar and Fall of a Kite

I love to fly kites. I had actually forgotten how much I love to fly them until once, several years ago, when my parents bought a kite for each of my daughters.  We had a windy day one afternoon and so we took full advantage of it.  Outside we went with the kites and 200 … Continue reading

A Hand Across My Lips

“Then the LORD said to Job, “Do you still want to argue with the Almighty?  You are God’s critic, but do you have the answers?”   Then Job replied to the LORD, “I am nothing – how could I ever find the answers?  I will cover my mouth with my hand.  I have said too … Continue reading

Prove It

“If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy … Continue reading
