See the Benefit of Your Trials!

My soul weeps because of grief; strengthen me according to Your word. Psalm 119:28


Dear Sisters and Brothers,


Just as the disciples experienced, we have all been jolted and jerked by life. We have danced with sorrow and are familiar with grief and loss. If you are reading this and have not experienced sorrow, prepare, for you will know sorrow as surely as the sun will rise tomorrow. Earth’s journey is peppered with sorrow…

The Hands of Heaven



It’s time for letting go…. nothing more… I can do

It is out of my hands now… but not ever out of my heart….

 In the hands of heaven always and forever…


My soul grieves to a depth I have never known before …

I would move heaven and earth to make everything right … I would…

But I can no longer hold on … I am letting go

It is out of my hands … but not ever out of my heart

 The hands of heaven hold it…

Unrelenting Grace

Unrelenting Grace

Among the fields of gold and green rustling in the midday breeze I find it,

Above the jagged rocks and cliffs where the majestic eagles fly I attain it,

Along babbling brooks and streams where the heat of the day is quenched I discover it

Beyond the harsh city streets where unknown perils lie I encounter it

Beneath the unforgiving reality of poverty even there I see it

Beneath the night sky of each small town or suburb nestled…

What is So Good About Good Friday?

     Obviously, if all we were to see was that horrific display of what an unregenerate man can do to muster up as much hate towards another human being, then the use of the word "good" would most certainly be out of place to describe what happened that awful dark day we call Good Friday. It  has always been understood that the day commemorated called  Good Friday was anything but good. Jesus Christ after carrying that heavy cruel cross up…

It is Not Just 'In the Beginning'....

And God said, “Let us make man in our own image.” Gen 1:26   

Brothers and Sisters in our LORD,
Filing this verse away in my memory-folder “Creation,” it was segregated to how things began; until I realized it is not only truth of our beginnings, it is active truth for us today. God is still today about…

Andrew Funches

Rome (CNN) -- The new pope gave an insight into his choice of the name Francis in an audience with journalists Saturday -- and said how he wished for a church that was both poor and "for the poor."

His words came in his first meeting with the media since he became the only Jesuit and first Latin American to be chosen…

Yesterday, I was in a car accident and it was TOTALLY MY FAULT! I exchanged insurance information and the lady pulled off. As I was on the phone with my insurance company to place a claim, the woman called me on the other line. She said, "I thought about it and I don't want to place a claim against you. I just want to let it go." I told the insurance company what she said, they told me it was too late, a claim number had been issued and she would…

New Pope

VATICAN CITY — With a puff of white smoke from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel and to the cheers of thousands of rain-soaked faithful, a gathering of Catholic cardinals picked a new pope from among their midst on Wednesday — choosing the cardinal from Argentina, the first South American to lead the church.

Dance in the Fire with Me

 “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad…  Matthew 5:12a


Dear Brothers and Sisters in our glorious LORD, 

We all have people in our life I refer to as ‘extra-grace-needed’ people. I was scheduled to meet with such a student this week to explain some things to help her get over being offended last Thursday.…

Shattered (beautifully)


 Shattered … utterly broken and unhinged… a heart jagged and torn …. A mind tormented and anguished….  A soul tattered and frayed…  A spirit weathered and worn…A body bereft of health and strength... The ruins of an existence scattered ….  No earthly beast or fowl would live like this…. 

One desperate frantic attempt after another to gather the many shattered pieces… yet they are too numerous and the edges are sharp and cut at each…

‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10

Fellow Lovers of our King, Jesus,


Someone knocks on your door to hand deliver a letter from an attorney’s office. It looks important. As you quickly…

     Allow me to attempt an illustration of what it means to be IN Christ and on the way to heaven. Allegorically speaking, you're about to enter your Dad's car... you get in and you close the door.  At the wheel is your Dad. You are entrusting your very life into his capable hands. It is his responsibility to make sure both you and him will arrive safely to the destination ahead.
