Against the Wind

Psalm 104:1-4 Praise the Lord, my soul. Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his […]

A Very Mary Martha

Luke 10:38-42 “As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. […]

Casting the Nets

Luke 5:5-7 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come […]

An Anchoring Hope

Isaiah declared, ‘The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.’” There are so few things that can truly be classified as timeless: A black shift dress, maybe? A work of art? I’d like to think so. Certainly not […]

A Sure Foundation: Digging In the Dirt

Isaiah 33:6 “He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.” Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Isaiah 28:16 “So this is what the […]

The Eyes of the Lord Roam

2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” As a self-proclaimed people watcher, I find myself endlessly fascinated when I’m in large crowds. Whether that’s at a crowded beach, in a bustling […]
