Learning to Play My Own Song

But something began to happen. The more I tried to play, the more my desire increased to hear the written melody flow smoothly through my fingers.

Song of the Stones

You may silence the people, but never the truth. Stones will cry out if these voices are stilled.

He Took the Stand

Jesus insured security the day He died upon a tree

Oh, what a Savior we have in Jesus Christ!

Just Not That Into You

I pray the distractions that once pushed You aside

will become less important in our daily lives

and that the things we choose to fill our days

will be things that please You and bring You praise

Outstretched Arms

How wide would you open your arms if someone asks how much you love the Lord?

Love Letter

You anxiously await their response—

Will they care what you have to say?

Empty

Two boats… left there.

The Promise

The Newborn King arrived just as prophecy did say
His mother laid the Sacred One upon the cattle’s hay
As much as Mary longed to hold her newborn Son
she placed Him in a manger as a sign for everyone

His Divine Light

His divine light captured at sunrise from the Smoky Mountain National Park. I am delighted to share the gift of nature through the lens of my camera and the eyes He has given me to see His wonders. May you feel inspired to share this image and post with others.

You Can Handle It!

My brothers and my sisters, I may not know the full extent of your circumstances, your situation, or your storm, but God wants you to know that you can handle it!

Pain Reminds Us What’s Important

All that other little stuff that we often let bother us… isn’t worth it. Enjoy life as much as you can and thank the Lord every single day.

A Better Graduation Speech

If given the chance, I would’ve run on stage, halted the processional music, and read to them a better graduation speech.

Would You Dance at a Ball Game?

I see your every move. There is nothing hidden from Me. I take pleasure in your praise and worship to Me. I take pleasure when you dance before Me.

When Raccoons Attack

While it may feel like the enemy has the upper hand today, he never gets to win. God has a plan to restore all the places that the enemy has broken down.

Forgiveness

Do you need to extend forgiveness
to someone who has caused you harm?
Do you need to open up your heart?
Do you need to open up your arms?

Clarence, The Trainer

God desires to train us to be strong for Him. Anything He asks of me is the best. He is all-knowing in every arena of life. Unlike a human coach, He never pushes too hard or too softly. His ways are perfect.

Strongholds

It’s when I finally ran to Him in my weakness 
that He strengthened and delivered me 
He parted the Red Sea for the Israelites
and He made an escape for me

Followers

His holy footsteps guide us to the Father’s throne
They illuminate the path that takes us safely home
Do you know the One who says, “Come, Follow Me?”
If not, I encourage you to accept Jesus as your Lord and King
