BLESSING BECOMES SIN

Perhaps you have caught this in the past, however just in case you might have missed the idea of a blessing can easily become a blight; sin if you did not observe the connection! When Israel left Egypt, after 400 years and ten plagues had battered them under Moses leadership, (Exodus 7-11) a most interestingContinue reading “BLESSING BECOMES SIN”

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”

THRU MANY DANGERS, TOILS, & SNARES

A friend wrote recently, and quoted those words from Amazing Grace. (John Newton)  In comparison, I would like to believe that I never measured anything close to him by a fouled up life.  However, in our tendency to grade sin as bad, worse, or even so categorically as beyond the imagination, we would like toContinue reading “THRU MANY DANGERS, TOILS, & SNARES”

A SYMBOL

Early in our move to Sun City Patsy said: “Honey!  Would you consider putting a bay window in the Living Room?”  Naturally, I consented!  She seldom asked for anything, so I usually made a special effort to accommodate.  That window has been decorated with all types of things over the years. Since our daughter isContinue reading “A SYMBOL”

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!”

ANCHOR’S A WEIGHT / AWEIGH / A WAY

I have been looking for a good size boat anchor for my front yard. It takes time to find exactly what one desires. After all, coming from Bermuda, I had decided on some items that would enhance the yard to remind me of my roots. Several, including the anchor, are in my plans. I spottedContinue reading “ANCHOR’S A WEIGHT / AWEIGH / A WAY”

ACCOUNTABILITY

More popular than ever is the credit card. We utilize it for every conceivable purpose under the sun. We are constantly flooded with new opportunities to secure one or two during the course of a week. As I reviewed my credit card statement recently, I was made aware of my activity during the previous month.Continue reading “ACCOUNTABILITY”

REPENTANCE

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10 It is a very “strong” word. In fact, if I use itContinue reading “REPENTANCE”

PLACED IN A COFFIN IN EGYPT

“Joseph said to them, ‘Do not be afraid, for am I in the place of God? But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive. Now therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones.’ And he comforted themContinue reading “PLACED IN A COFFIN IN EGYPT”
