Good Friday

His spirit and his life he breathes in all Now on this cross his body breathes no more Here at the centre everything is still Spent, and emptied, opened to the core. A quiet taking down, a prising loose A cross-beam lowered like a weighing scale Unmaking of each thing that had its use A long withdrawing of each bloodied nail, This is ground zero, emptiness and space With nothing left to say or think […]

Celebration in a Cemetery!

She was carrying a gift, but she didn’t expect a party. Mary Magdalene had risen early that Sunday morning while it was still dark to go to the tomb where Jesus’ body had been laid following his death on the cross. Her grief was overwhelming as she hurried to take spices and aloes to place on Jesus’ graveclothes. Never before had she felt so alone and helpless. Oh no! As she approached the tomb, the […]

What are you afraid of?

What are you most afraid of today? When life is uncertain and you become fearful about the future, what should you do? God invites you to take your fears to him so he can calm your heart. You can’t avoid the pain life has to offer, but you can endure whatever comes your way because God will be with you. He knows how you feel and what you need. He will either calm the storm […]

Looking for Hope?

Have you ever been so thirsty you would give anything for a drink of cool, clean, sparkling water? Imagine for a moment you had the choice of drinking from a clear mountain stream or from a rusty tub of gutter water containing dried leaves, mosquitoes, and other debris. Who, you ask, would even think about drinking from a broken, rusty tub of polluted rain water to satisfy their thirst? In a spiritual sense, we all […]

Looking Beyond Your Problems

r “When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. You are precious to me. You are honored. I love you.” (Isaiah 43:2,4 NLT) Are you trying desperately to keep your head above water, feeling like you may be going under for the last time? Don’t give up! Remember when you were a child first learning to swim? Someone […]

Love That Won’t Let Go

Abba What would it be like to have someone love you forever–regardless of the way you look or act, despite disagreements and difficulties that arise? How would it feel to know you will never be abandoned or cast aside for a “newer model?” How would life be if you knew the person who loved you would always be there for you, encouraging and challenging you to become the best God created you to be? Some […]

Anticipating the Surprises!

  Remember the breathless excitement of being a child on Christmas Eve, anxiously awaiting the arrival of Christmas morning–the wonderful smell of pine, the magical twinkling lights, angelic sounds of Christmas carols, and oh my, the beautiful presents under the tree–some for me, some for thee! Some people grow up and lose that child-like anticipation and awe, but not me! As soon as the Thanksgiving turkey is turned into leftovers, I trade the sophistication of […]

Immanuel’s Priceless Gift

“One raw winter night a man heard an irregular thumping sound against the kitchen storm door. He went to a window and watched as tiny, shivering sparrows, attracted to the evident warmth inside, beat in vain against the glass. Touched, the farmer bundled up and trudged through the fresh snow to open the barn for the struggling birds. He turned on the lights, tossed some hay in the corner, and sprinkled a trail of saltine […]
