The good news is the days are getting longer! The bad news is that winter is finally visiting Central Minnesota today. We're expecting several inches of snow followed by cold and lots of wind. It should make things very interesting. I've been prepared for winter for some time now, but I can't help but think … Continue reading Winter Is Here!
As many of you know, I was born again while attending a liberal "Christian" church and attended it after for a couple years. My faith was like a wildfire, growing exponentially every day. I discovered the bible, although it was never lost. I simply found it, like one would find something carelessly discarded in a … Continue reading Jesus Said That??
Isn't it interesting how someone says something and you suddenly see things from a new perspective? That happened again to me last week. I was listening to Alistair Begg, and he said something that clicked. I'm not sure exactly how he said it, but it had to do with Jesus calming the storm. Remember that … Continue reading Peace! Be Still!
My most common topic in this blog is salvation. The whole concept simply fascinates me. I'm not alone. These are "things into which angels long to look." (1 Peter 1:12) Let's put this in perspective. Angels are in heaven, or at least that is their home base. All of them have been around since the … Continue reading The Miracle of Mercy!
I don't spend much time thinking about Jesus' return, but I should. I guess I just assume that I will die before he comes back. That's actually quite foolish, according to Jesus. Certainly, I am aware of all the parables about being awake and alert for the master's return, but that seems meant as warning … Continue reading He’s Coming!
Last night I had the privilege to share my testimony with the men of The Fortress. As you know, I am fond of this place because it's so easy to see God's hand at work in people's lives. Why? Simply put, the guys are here because they need help. But, to be honest, we all … Continue reading Testimonies.
Before I even start, I want you to know that I will be unable to adequately relate what I am experiencing. You'll have to go through it yourself to know what I mean and trust me when I tell you it is worth it. If you've been following me for a time, you'll know that … Continue reading It’s So, So Cool!
The other day I wrote about prayer and referenced John 15:7-8, one of the "ask me anything" verses. I'm still hanging around John 15. I can't seem to get it stuck in my head about just how huge of a thing this is, and I keep coming back to it. John 15:16 16 You did not … Continue reading The Joy Of Abiding!
This is a good follow up for yesterday's post on praying for my lost family members. It comes from a book called "The Valley of Vision - A Collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions" edited by Arthur Bennett and published by Banner of Truth. These prayers take some getting used to, but they are so, … Continue reading A Puritan Prayer
I'm always amazed how little I pray. I was going to write "compared to what I should," but I decided against that. I don't know how much I should pray because I've never reached a point that I can honestly say, "That's enough." Here's what I'm pretty sure of. By neglecting this great gift, I … Continue reading Teach Me To Pray.
