    Love Lifts Me Higher

    “Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah” (Psalm 32:7) I’ve been writing a lot about heights, mountains, towers and high places lately. Perhaps God is trying to get me to see things from a different perspective. He certainly used the mountains a lot in the bible as well. Could it be that the higher we go, the greater the potential that we will change our perspectives? When my mother died, the Lord put it upon my heart to worship Him in dance and song.  He knew that dance was once one of my favorite activities, and…

    Heads Or Tails

    “And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:” –  Deuteronomy 28:13 God’s word is put into place for our best success; so, if we follow his lead, we know that we are on the greatest path to success.  We weren’t just born to be followers, we were born to lead as well. By rights, we should be the leading character in our story.  God didn’t create us to be meek…

    Ground Zero

    “For the LORD is the one who shaped the mountains, stirs up the winds, and reveals his thoughts to mankind. He turns the light of dawn into darkness and treads on the heights of the earth. The LORD God of Heaven’s Armies is his name!” – Amos 4:13 The definition of Ground Zero – is a point on the earth’s surface above, or below, or a position at which an explosion occurs.  It is a culmination/turning point, a fast change, or an enduring intense activity.  It is a starting point, or a return to the beginning point. Serving God is sort of like being a mountain climber.  Our flesh doesn’t…

    The Greatest Monument

    There are many famous towers in the world.  The Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy; The Eiffel Tower of Paris, making France known for it’s beautiful ability to light up the sky. No wonder they call it, “The City Of Lights.” The Twin Towers of New York was a huge attraction, and the home of the world trade center – an American cultural icon. Tragedy struck the towers down, causing people to lose their sense of security; however, as a nation they pulled together and rebuilt a memorial in its place.  The human spirit is quite a thing. The CN tower in Canada is one of my favorites since it’s…

    Something In The Water

    “Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”  – Acts 2:38 “Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.” – John 3:5

    Written In Red

    “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” – Psalm 119:11 In Exodus 20 Moses wrote the Ten Commandments on a tablet of stone.  It was smashed by Moses out of anger, and then I believe re-written.  No matter how many times you push rules on people, they will always find ways to, “break,” the rules.  But God always has a forgiving spirit, especially with a heart of true repentance. “He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant–not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” – 2 Corinthians 3:6 The gospel…

    Mr Big

     “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” – Jeremiah 32:17 Mr Big is one of the largest chocolate bars produced by Cad-bury.  When I’m perusing the chocolate aisles I see tons of chocolate bars I could choose from; however, I tend to go for the biggest bar I can find, because I know if I choose the smaller of the bunch, I will go in search of more junk food to curb my chocolate craving. “God is a big bully sitting on an anthill with a magnifying glass, and I’m the ant. He could fix…
