God’s Face

God’s Face

Hebrews 1:3 describes Jesus as: He is the radiance of His (God’s) glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, Several years ago after contemplating that scripture I wrote this poem. Jesus is God . . . with a face; come to earth to show us His grace. Creator, Sovereign, Sacrifice; the Only way to…

The Supreme Judge

The Supreme Judge

I don’t pretend to know the truth in the Kavanaugh case, but I know the One who does. The Judge of the whole earth. All I can do is pray for His truth to come forth; for evil to fail and right prevail. A few days ago I received an instant message from a praying friend that asked me to pray Psalm 40 for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Several phrases jumped out at me as I prayed through that Psalm. For…

Of Grief

Of Grief

  I begin a new grief class this next week offered by Hospice House using writing as an aid to working through the process of my new normal after losing my husband, Vic, in April. In June, we would have celebrated 56 years of marriage. I never cease to be amazed at God’s timing. I’m a wee bit behind in my daily devotional reading of New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp. His entry for June 24 reads, “Grief is good…

Discouragement’s Cure

Discouragement’s Cure

Recently I had an opportunity to visit Bass Pro Shops Big Cedar Lodge on Table Rock Lake near Branson, MO for a wedding. Through a front gate, along a winding road, then a scenic ride on a shuttle, brought us to the site of the wedding. At the end of a long underground walkway we emerged to see this magnificent site set in a reflecting pool overlooking Table Rock. To the left of The End of the Trail sculpture sat…

The All-Sufficient One

The All-Sufficient One

  I’m amazed at Jesus’ sufficiency for every situation as I walk this new path of widowhood. When I need tax advice, a trusted, competent advisor appears. When I am faced with questions about the farm and its daily operations, He provides people in the know. When I need energy to clean out a grossly overly cluttered garage, He supplies the motivation, a dear sister-in-law to help, and willing hands to carry off the unneeded plunder. When I need to…

Burdens and Knuckleballs

Burdens and Knuckleballs

Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. When God calls us to cast our burdens on Him, it’s not a little toss of a ball. “Cast” means “to hurl, fling.” I see this word cast as a top-notch pitcher throwing his fastest knuckleball. God’s attention is riveted on us, ready to catch anything that is a burden to us. We aren’t to hold on to…

Our Unique God

Our Unique God

Isaiah 64:4 For from of old they have not heard nor perceived by ear, neither has the eye seen a God besides Thee, who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him. Of all the world religions of all the ages, there is no God who forgives sins, who came to earth to tell us of the One True God, who offered His own self on a cross as payment for our sins, and then died. But there…

Jesus, the Bread of Life

Jesus, the Bread of Life

John 6:33 (Jesus said)“For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” In this passage, the 5,000 people who had shared the little boy’s five loaves and two fish, asked Jesus what they should do to work the works of God. Jesus told them that the work of God was to believe in Him, the One God sent to earth (John 6:28-29). He then told them He was the bread…

Jesus, Our Fulfillment

Jesus, Our Fulfillment

Luke 24:44 Now He (Jesus)said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” On that first Easter Sunday, grieving disciples encountered the risen Lord on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13). That same evening they returned to Jerusalem and sought out other disciples to tell them they had seen…

Jesus Is God’s Son

Jesus Is God’s Son

I John 5:10 The one who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the witness that God has borne concerning His Son. When we put our faith and trust in Jesus, we have a new heart. We soon learn God can be trusted in even the smallest whispered requests offered in Jesus’ name. When John baptized Jesus in…
