DEAR OLD JOB

Few are they, who cannot in one way or the other, identify with Job.  If I do not have the identical experiences, I have encountered some extended times of physical, mental or emotional frustrations that I thought would never end.  Worse than anything was that in trying to identify the reasons behind them; I foundContinue reading “DEAR OLD JOB”

A NEEDED VISION

I receive numerous words of appreciation for these BLOGS.  My deepest appreciation for your comments, in the majority, positive!   Because of time limitations, we find it impossible to respond to you for on-line discussion.  I have but one purpose, TO MAKE YOU THINK.  If I am successful in that area, the Holy Spirit Himself willContinue reading “A NEEDED VISION”

FAMILY TIES

Much is said throughout the Scriptures about family ties.  Their importance cannot be over emphasized.  Many a young person looks forward to rearing their own family, only to discover that it was not as easy as they thought.  Some believe their parents fell short, which they will not duplicate, while others thought them to beContinue reading “FAMILY TIES”

SAUL … IN AGREEMENT

How long does one hold something over another person’s head?   You are in a conversation, in a group more-so, and a name is mentioned, someone quickly inserts an incident that took place or was supposed to have taken place thirty years previously.  It may be an insinuation with no accuracy, and yet the expression onContinue reading “SAUL … IN AGREEMENT”

HIGHWAY SCARS

Traveling the highway north and preparing for a visit with folk that I had not seen for several months, I came suddenly upon a large mark in the highway, immediately identifiable as a place where a large animal, probably a deer or steer, had been hit by a vehicle.  My mind was reflecting on theContinue reading “HIGHWAY SCARS”

HOW RICH I AM

When in Bermuda Commercial School, we had a teacher, an old fashioned Methodist, who was intent on teaching us a subject beyond accounting, etc… She began each day with Scripture and prayer and required that we memorize some of those verses. Admittedly, at that stage of my life I was not “into” such thinking. ShortlyContinue reading “HOW RICH I AM”

I LOVE YOU, STILL!

One should never tire of hearing the words of John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” From the fall of Adam and Eve, recorded in Genesis 3, there is prophecy after prophecy that unfolds theContinue reading “I LOVE YOU, STILL!”

FORGIVENESS

“Then Peter came to Him and said, ‘Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?’” Matthew 18:21 A more gratuitous word cannot be heard, unless it has been repeated seventy times seven. I took a liking to Peter from the first day I read about him. HeContinue reading “FORGIVENESS”

LOVE – AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.” Luke 6:35 I have mentioned previously that the first verse of Scripture I was encouraged to memorize after I invited Jesus Christ toContinue reading “LOVE – AT YOUR FINGERTIPS”
