A Thankful Tribute
“Peace, Peace to him who is far off and to him who is near! Says the Lord; I create the fruit of his lips, and I will heal him [make his lips blossom anew with speech in thankful praise]” Isaiah 57:19 As I traveled up a winding road I have traveled many times before, I had one thing on my mind, the old apple tree at the top of the hill. When I arrived at the top, I was disappointed to find a barren and withered tree. Then I remembered that back in the spring, I had not seen the […]
I Shall Be Satisfied!
“The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.” Psalm 22:26 There is a deep longing in the soul of each person that needs to be filled. God-placed it there as part of His creation. As a deer seeks for the water so our soul longs for love. A thirsty soul is a longing soul that is looking for something that can not be satisfied by natural means. The longing of every soul is to be loved unconditionally. A longing soul can only be satisfied by the Lord […]
Receiving God’s Love

If love is measured […]

A big, big yard where we can play football…It’s my Fathers House.” This song portrayed our Father God’s house as being home we can’t wait to go to. Like coming home after a long journey, you can’t wait to get there and you can smell cookies baking even before you get to the front door. […]
Stressed and Distressed? Try Resting in His Arms
“And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting looking and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him, [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless unbroken companionship]!” Isaiah 30:18 AMP Have you ever sat for hours, listening to someone talk and thought to yourself, “I sure wish they […]
