Matthew 19 & 20

I am currently reading through Matthew and this morning I was in chapters 19 and 20. Normally I read more than two chapters each morning, but I have been stuck reflecting on sacrifice...Jesus' and mine. In chapter 19, verses 16-27, Jesus tells the story of a rich man who wants to know what he has [...]

All Lives Matter

"All Lives Matter" I will start off by acknowledging this statement may seem offensive to the "Black Lives Matter" movement, and I understand why...because right now the focus is on the tragic death of a black man, George Floyd. It's recent and it's raw. I've watched the video of his death and it made me [...]

He is at Work in the Outcome

I just started a study called "Finding God Faithful" by Kelly Minter and it's currently walking me through the life of Joseph. I have read Joseph's story before and, like all stories in the Bible, it speaks to me differently each time I read it depending on my life circumstances and what God is saying [...]

Certain Uncertainty

When this COVID-19 shut down first began, I think a lot of us didn't grasp the severity of what was to come. Most probably felt like we would go untouched by what was happening in other countries, like a storyline we'd watch on the news but would never happen to us personally. And then it [...]


I am going to take a break blogging about each book of the Bible and speak about life for a minute. If you ever wonder if God is speaking to you, pay attention to themes in your life. God is not always audible, but He speaks loud and clear. One clear theme in my life [...]


The book of Numbers starts off with Moses taking count of every man over the age of twenty, tribe by tribe, and then giving instruction on the layout of how they are to set up camp and march from place to place. Sometimes I don't understand the relevance of some parts of the Bible. But I [...]


The entire book of Leviticus is a compilation of detailed instructions, from all the different types of offerings, to what makes someone unclean, what they have to do to become clean, what you can and can't eat, how to treat one another, who you can and cannot have sex with, the different feasts, you name [...]


This is a long post but please read to the end!!! In Exodus we read about Moses and Pharaoh and the plagues...and on through the beginning of the Israelite's 40 year journey through the dessert. Several things speak to me... From the time Moses escaped Egypt to the time God called him to free the [...]

Genesis (Part 4)

We finish Genesis with the life of Joseph. In my last post I talked about stewardship. What better example than the man who remained faithful to God through many years of trials and whom God, in turn, used to save the masses. For those who don't know the story of Joseph, here's a summarized rundown. [...]
