Relentless Pursuit

There are so many times I should have been “dead” in my life: BUT GOD. GOD RELENTLESSLY chased and pursued me. He called me “chosen.” He gave me “life.” He called me to live. He chose me when I could not choose myself.He used circumstances and “life” to get my attention; to notice HIM— to notice HIS […]

One of Those Days

Matthew 11:28 It’s been one of those days! How many times have we said this? The crazy busy schedules we keep, juggling family, work, school, sports, errands, etc. Ugh! When does it end? Somedays, I feel like I’m on a merry-go-round that won’t slow down. By the end of the night, I’m purely exhausted. I […]

No Frills

2 Corinthians 12:9, Psalm 107:29 When I think back on my life, 2 crucial times or moments stick out to me that I would consider significant challenges. The first occurred before I was a follower of Christ and the second was more recent and after I have been a follower of Christ for some time. […]

Pray Always

Always be joyful.  Never stop praying.  Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) Pray always, we pray as ordinary people who have an extraordinary God. We’re just normal, you and me.  Prayer is effective, not because of great men who pray, but because of a […]


Ezekiel 37:1-14 After reading today’s scripture I thought, “oh what a sight that must have been in Ezekiel’s vision”. All those dry bones put back together and made whole. If we stop at verse 8, the narrative says, “they were totally formed but didn’t have breath”. I guess you could say they were like mannequins; […]

Lessons from Failure

Genesis 37-41 When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way. – Unknown author. If we look at the story of Joseph, we see many disappointments and failures; but, he was famous […]

Ash Wednesday

On this special day, Ash Wednesday, may my small sacrifices in fasting be a way to clear away the clutter in my life to see you more clearly. May my longing for meat and other food, help me to focus my life today more outside myself. Let me be aware of those who are in so much more suffering than I […]

Rock Salt

Psalms 119 Ah yes. Winter in Pennsylvania! It has been pretty brutal here with cold winds, ice and snow. My biggest expense this winter? You guessed it. Bags and bags of rock salt. You can’t live in Pennsylvania in the winter months without rock salt. Our walkways and paths get totally glazed over with the ice […]

Seeking Refuge

Psalm 91:4 When I feel overwhelmed or like I just want to give up, I think of just crawling in my bed, pulling the covers up over myself and drowning out the world. Sometimes I need to drown out my own thoughts and just surrender and let go. There in that moment and in that […]

Shapes and Sizes

I wanted to share my experience with you today because I know in my heart it was God’s almighty protection. No, He didn’t save me from a horrible accident or a major disaster. It was better yet. He saved me from myself! On my way home from work today, I had the strongest craving for […]
