  • What Is Our First Calling?
    Tuesday, November 13, 2018 2:52 PM
    Have you read Mark 3:13 before? I have read and re-read this verse, but not with the same intensity as I have read it recently. The verse says; “And He goeth up into a mountain, and He calleth unto Him whom He would;and they came unto Him.” The Lord called them to Him, not a task or a trip or a ministry. He called them unto Him. Why? He wanted to instill the message in them that was to be presented to the world.  He wanted to build a secure foundation in them for the work He sent them out to do. He wanted to empower them with the Holy Spirit. He wanted them prepared for whatever they might meet out there where He was sending them.

  • Listening?  Just listening?  Uh, I’m not so sure about that!

    “Going through the motions doesn’t please you, a flawless performance is nothing to you. I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered. Heart-shattered lives ready for love don’t for a moment escape God’s notice.”  (Psalm 51:16-17 “The Message” translation)

  • Heading Into The Day

    When I grew up, my family did not pray together. In fact, that kind of thing could get us into trouble. I would pray privately and secretly, whenever it seemed to me to be the right thing to do. 

  • Trust In His Word As We Face Change
    Tuesday, October 23, 2018 4:17 PM
    Living here in the Midwest, one is very familiar with the phase, “if you don’t like the weather here, wait awhile, and it will change.” We certainly seen that in mid­ October, warm one day, snowing the next, only for sunny days that followed.

    This is quite literally what happened at my dinner table the other night. Not with a dog because dogs don’t sit at my dinner table, that would just be weird. My daughter was in the middle of a sentence when she turned her head fast enough to give me whiplash, pointed out the window and yelled, “Squirrel!”

    We see so many things in the world getting thrown away or just getting pushed to the side or just not getting used anymore. Once something is used when we want something new. How about a horseshoe? It is used to protect the horse’s hooves from wearing down. We think about how dirty it gets. Its is stepped on all day, taken in water, mud and who knows what else. It doesn’t hurt the horse to have this on but it really helps them.

  • Rejoice In The Lord

     “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Philippians 4:4

    Do you remember the old westerns, and the phrase “reach for the sky?” It was implied by the person saying that if you didn’t surrender your weapons, you would soon be chock full of lead. The same can be said of us if we do not surrender to God. You may not end up full of lead, but you certainly will get a chance to melt some.

    There are world religions and individuals I could be following. I’ve chosen to follow Jesus Christ. Jesus offers what no other religion or person offers. Jesus offers: forgiveness of my sins, a good relationship with God, and eternal life in God’s Kingdom. I’ve learned about this from the Bible. John 3:16-17 tells me, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

  • Walk Among The Redwoods
    Wednesday, September 12, 2018 10:12 AM
    A boy of about 13 or 14 was walking in the forest of redwoods north of San Francisco. It was near the place where the Ewoks would be filmed in a later Star Wars movie, and also near where Caesar and his allies would escape to in the Planet of the Apes movies from the 2000’s. It was not the kind of a place that a kid from South Dakota would usually be able to walk. The trees were majestic. The air was cool and fresh. It was a place of peace and awe and wonder.
