God’s Mysterious Ways

God’s Mysterious Ways

Forty years ago, we had a small prayer group at church that met every Tuesday. God blessed us each time we met with miraculous healings and obvious answered prayers; far beyond anything we had ever seen before. Our numbers increased each week as people discovered a personal relationship with the living Lord Jesus. At one of these meetings, Carol, one of the members, announced her husband’s company had transferred them to Colorado from here in Kansas City. We had become…

True Riches

True Riches

My husband’s channel surfing finally landed on the History channel recently. The program listed the world’s resources; gold, oil, and water, among other things. At the end of each segment, they stated the dollar amount of each resource in today’s market. At the end of the hour, they estimated the world’s total riches in so many quadrillion dollars. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get my head around that much money. All I can understand is that’s one…

A Day with My Granddaughter

A Day with My Granddaughter

Recently I spent the day with one of my granddaughters. She’ll be a senior in high school next year. We spoke of many things, but one stands out in my memory. She told me of accompanying a friend to a Planned Parenthood facility. Her friend’s mother instructed her to go there to get a pregnancy test. I’ll let you hear the conversation we had. “Mandy’s * mother was out of town so Mandy asked me to go with her.” “Why…

Dreams & Visions

Dreams & Visions

“‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, ‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams’” (Acts 2:17). Recently an older gentleman in my Bible study approached me after our weekly session. The lesson on the CD that week dealt with interceding for revival. “Chaplain, I had a dream last night. In the…

Choices

Jason Collins, an NBA basketball player came out this week announcing he was gay. He’s featured on the cover of Newsweek Magazine. It’s reported his Twitter account has thousands of new followers. President Obama called to congratulate him. There is a missing voice in all this. The Creator of the Whole Universe. The One Who Loves Him Best. The One who laid down very specific instructions both in the Old and New Testaments about homosexuality, among other subjects. Is anyone…

God’s Promises

God’s Promises

Most of us have heard of God’s promises. We used to have a little box of scripture promises on the kitchen table. I’d pull one out each morning. Now I read them from my Bible and my devotional book. I’ve discovered many more than the ones in the little box. God is true to what He says He will do. Most have conditions like, “If you’ll to this, I’ll do that.” The closer I look, the more specific His promises…

Salt in Dung Fire

Salt in Dung Fire

Words from a video lingered in my mind: “God calls us to be salt. In ancient times, salt was added to animal droppings to make the fire hotter.” Those words came from a video entitled Focus on the Family’s That the World May Know series. This series is taught by Ray VanderLaan, an excellent Bible teacher. As I thought about VanderLaan’s statement, I questioned why anyone would want to make a fire hotter. • To make fire more efficient and…

Candlelight Vigil for an Elk

Candlelight Vigil for an Elk

Is the world going nuts, or is it just me? On the news the other morning they reported that several hundred people gathered for a candlelight vigil on January 6, 2013 in Boulder, Colorado for an elk shot by an off-duty police officer. Reportedly the officer saw the elk limping and thought it was injured. The officer is now on leave. The people interviewed were crying over the loss of “Big Boy.” One tearful little girl who held a candle…
