Still God.

Why does the psalmist tell us in Psalm 46 to: “be still and know that He is God?”  because stillness is a most difficult position to assume; contrary to the idea of peace, being what all men desire, stillness is a time of silence and barrenness in which  we forget such things as sovereignty and…

Invisible God

How long will it take me to see you’re not invisible after all-it’s me who’s blind. I live in a dark world where the light of Christ alone illuminates my eyes to see the un-seen, know the unknown and commune with the invisible God.

one small step in my faith place

Some thoughts on optimism and stepping out in faith I’m excited. It could be that I am hungry and planning a really yummy Mexican dish for dinner.

Friday, April 18, 2013 Philippians 3 But whatever things were gain to me, those things I counted as loss for the sake of Christ… Paul effortlessly recounts his credentials.
