Pay Attention, Here’s Your Change

To my knowledge, I’ve never been in a coma. I have be so focused and attentive to something at times that I miss many other things going on right around me, be it; a crash or accident, the sudden death of a loved one, or even something as simple stopping a sudden plumbing leak. WeContinue reading “Pay Attention, Here’s Your Change”

Won’t Do Us Part

Today is certainly one of those “even death won’t do us part” days, for it is actually the topic for our August 14th devotional in the Jesus Calling series, but even better… it finally is the day I marry a dear, dear woman; María. Now, God tells over-n-again that He will never leave us, thatContinue reading “Won’t Do Us Part”

Not for Naught, Give a Shout

‘Life‘ means many things and is used in so many ways, but at it’s core, it is defined as; ‘any specified period of animate existence’. Plants have life, animals have life, as does the human race have life. Especially with humans, life also includes our spirit and soul, which is a much deeper version ofContinue reading “Not for Naught, Give a Shout”

Inadequately Insufficient Deficiency

Three words that help speak volumes for the ‘groanings’ I struggle over in my life… trying to be acceptable (please keep me around)… trying to be compliant (I can follow rules)… trying to be faultless or blameless (am I doing the right things?). Yet, someone, somewhere, someway construes their viewpoint in such a way asContinue reading “Inadequately Insufficient Deficiency”

None of Your Busyness

One of the very easiest ways to answer Jesus’ invitation to come to Him, is; stop letting things keep you from Him! Easier said than done, I know SO well, but if you take a moment to consider that our busyness really pulls us from His invitation to fellowship with Him, so setting aside theContinue reading “None of Your Busyness”

Footfalls of Faith

As I walk around, most of the time I hold my head up and my eyes are on my path, my course, and the ‘road ahead’, as it were. Rarely do I look down and watch my feet as I walk… I don’t need to make sure they are following the commands of my nervous-system…Continue reading “Footfalls of Faith”

The Letter ‘R’

Our devotional today ends up showing us how one little letter, the letter ‘R’, can make such a difference in our lives and in our walk with the Lord. First, we read in Isaiah 61:10, “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed meContinue reading “The Letter ‘R’”

One Good Deep Deserves Another

I know, it’s a funky title for a devotional and normally I would agree, but our devotional today is admonition for the deeper life in the Lord. I know, that too is an old story and something of a cliché saying buzzing around these days. But, I read through Psalms 42:7, which states; “Deep callethContinue reading “One Good Deep Deserves Another”

Seeing Is Not Believing

Who knows when or where the phrase “seeing is believing” started, but it is a blatant lie; not even disguised as a half-truth. Seeing is NOT believing, it is ‘understanding’, it is acknowledgement of reality, it is something we experience once we see it (understand, or acknowledge its presence)… after, not before. Believing, at it’sContinue reading “Seeing Is Not Believing”

Cure the Common Chaos

I, for one, am a fan of predictably calm and peaceful days in my life. It may be a lofty quest, but when the timing is right, I thoroughly soak-up and savor the experience. All too often though, the day’s path gets derailed, changes course, and once in a while can be found a crumpledContinue reading “Cure the Common Chaos”
