Come and Drink!
“For He satisfies the longing (thirsty) soul and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” Psalm 107:9 Come and Drink One of my favorite things about where I live is that I can see the deer out in the morning and evening as they are looking for fresh water. They remind me of that Jesus said, “Come unto me all you who are thirsty and I will give you a drink.” Jesus is inviting us to come and drink and be restored. He has living water that will satisfy the longing of your heart and soul. When you spend time with […]
What is Grieving You?
“For they speak against Thee wickedly, and Thine enemies take Thy name in vain. I am grieved with those that rise up against thee” Psalm 139: 20-21 Does it grieve your spirit when someone speaks against the Lord, when they take His Name in vain? We use the Name of the Lord in vain when we use His Name to justify our bad behavior. When we say the “Lord told us” to do something, when really it is our own desire, we use His Name in vain. If we honor the Name of the Lord, we will never use […]
Abiding in His Presence

In Difficult Times, God Hears Our Weeping
The Lord has heard my cry for mercy; the Lord accepts my prayer. Psalm 6: 9 It seems that everywhere you go now people are discouraged, hurting, and afraid. The news media gives us a steady flow of painful reports that often overwhelm us with concern, and attempt to steal our hope. Unfortunately, in our cluttered and hyper-paced lifestyles we often rush through our challenges and attempt to control the outcomes ourselves. We sometimes get drawn-in to the painful reports and feel overwhelmed with the difficulties. It is important to recognize that in our times of difficulty, we have a […]
God Will Answer
“Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness…You have freed me when I was hemmed in and enlarged me when I was distressed…” Psalm 4:1 Have you ever felt hemmed in, trapped and unable to move? At that moment you can call upon God, and He will answer you. He will lift you up and free you from the present bondage. He will never leave you or forsake you. The children of Israel were hemmed in and unable to move when they were in bondage in Egypt. But they cried out and called upon God, and He answered. […]
