Right and wrong

Nothing has done greater damage to our Christian testimony than our trying to be right and demanding right of others.  We become preoccupied with what is and what is not right.  We ask ourselves, Have we been justly or unjustly treated? and we think thus to vindicate our actions.  But that is not our standard.  The […]

Yo Gabba Salvation Army

  Johnny Laird posted the above picture on his site.  It apparently came from a Salvation Army Youth web site.  I loved it so much I just had to post it as well!  It reminds me of something out of Yo Gabba Gabba.  Kewl!

White chalk

Whenever the noted evangelist, Gypsy Smith, wanted to see God do His great work, he was known to draw a circle around himself with a piece of white chalk and pray, “Lord, send a revival, and let it begin inside this circle.” I’ve posted that quote from Gypsy Smith before as it’s really powerful.  I got the […]

Loss

Within the course of less than a month I have lost 2 aunts to death.  My Aunt Betty died about 2 weeks ago and my Aunt Elsa died only 2 days ago.  Both of them were elderly and both had significant health problems.  But that doesn’t mean in any way that it’s ok with me […]

Harmony and purity

I’ve been waking up a lot lately in the wee hours of the morning.  And I’ve learned to take advantage of those times to just quietly pray.  And I distinctly heard the words “harmonize with your opponent” this morning.  I thought, that’s odd.  So when I woke up later I googled it and found that […]

Homecoming

Some time ago a friend gave me a prophetic word in the form of an old U2 song (which I love…both group and song).  It won’t make much sense to you dear reader per se’.  But sometimes my posts are mostly for me as a reminder.  Then again, if you get something out of it […]

Saved, healed, made whole

I was visiting at a local church last Sunday night and they had a sign that said “Sozo Cafe”.  Which was just their name for their coffee bar.  But it got me wondering what the word sozo means.  I knew that it was Greek and used in the Bible…and in fact I previously knew what […]

Buying oil

Tonight at LGBC Aaron said something striking.  He noted that our time is not our own.  It belongs to God…and that it is arrogant and greedy to think otherwise.  That’s a very sobering thought.  And I do believe that God must be at the center of all that we do.  But do I really seek […]

Speak the truth in love

Jenney blogged about seeing a church marqui that said “all you need is love” and wondered if this is really true.  Here was my response: Loving is always noble and right.  But I’m guessing that this church means that they will affirm and approve people in whatever sinful state they are in.  And that’s missing […]

The word for the day is manicorn

I am not very silly very often here anymore.  So I say it’s time to bring some mirth back.  I came across the following slang term here and simply must quote it.  The word for the day is Manicorn: manicorn  a mythical male creature who is successful (read: pursuing his passion and can pay his […]
