The Tragedy of Hard Hearts

My last post, in part, was about the wonder of life and how overjoyed my family and I were to welcome our young daughter, Norah. The birth of a little one often prompts reflection, and for me, more thoughts came with the recent controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood. The lack of value for human life saddened […]

The Wonder of Life

So, that was a long sabbatical. I took a break from writing this blog due to the pending birth of my daughter. I actually quit a month before, so I could spend any extra time I had at home helping my 8-9-month pregnant wife. I am happy to report my daughter Norah was born June […]

The God of Grace

Many who blog have weighed in on the Duggar family controversy. Once more, I am late to the party. Indeed, I think the party has ceased. Nevertheless, the issue prompted me to think and be grateful for God’s character. First, of course, what Josh did was wrong. Second, though, is the idea that his sin […]

Knowing God

  I have been thinking briefly about the idea of knowing God, and what that means. One of the comforts about God is that there is no mystery. There is mystery, in some of His ways and how they are beyond our comprehension. But we, as people, can have no doubt, that God wants us […]

Salvation: Foundation of our history, hope of our future

Here are some brief thoughts on salvation that I wrote a couple of years ago: Salvation might be the most important concept in the Bible. There is so much wrapped up in it. If it were not for salvation, we could not come into a right relationship with our God. Jesus’ blood shed on the […]

Good Rest

Some may have been wondering, but yes, my family and I have returned from our vacation. We got back a few days ago. Between vacations and a busy week before Easter, that can explain the lack of blog updates. Our family vacation was good in many ways. I am glad we took it, and glad […]

The Season’s Reason

Usually, before the Christmas season is in full swing, one hears the phrase, “Remember the Reason for the Season,” or the variant, “Jesus is the Reason for the Season.” Both statements are true. It’s with those statements in mind that I hope everyone thinks of the reason for this season. We are one week away […]

All Things Joyful

One Bible verse that appears confusing (at least at first) is James 1:2, where we are commanded to be joyful in times of trouble. That certainly flies in the face of what we want. Most people go to great lengths to avoid the possibility of trials. When they come, we try to grind through them […]

He Remains Faithful

Have you ever started something, and had big plans? Were you ambitious? Did you, maybe, bite off more than you were able to chew? I have done that, or more accurately, I am doing that. At the start of the year, I had hoped to update this blog more. I have great hopes of getting […]

Going to the House

It was a busy week last week (and this week). During that time, I was encouraged by a verse in Psalm 122 (Psalm 122:1). It says, “I was glad when they said to me, let us go to the house of the Lord.” It was so true, for me. While that verse was of course […]
