Do You Have Super-Powers?

The image shows up in fantasy art, superhero depictions, descriptions in books and acted out in movies. Often the depiction involves the sending of interference between good and evil either on behalf of, or against the plans and efforts of an entity, human, organization, etc. What am I talking about? …

“Give Us This Day, Our Daily Bread”, a New Perspective From an Old Source

In the past whenever gas got this low, we would make it stretch by walking almost everywhere, from grocery shopping to church etc. It is quite honestly the only downside to living 20 minutes out of town now. We can’t walk to the areas we used to. This morning after …

April Fools – In God’s eyes, who would the fools be?

It’s a peeve of mine every year.  I warn those near me not to engage in it or face the consequences.  I’m often seen as a kill-joy as a result, and this post will probably be taken in that vein by those who don’t see a problem with the subject …

“Stand Still and Focus on Me!”

If you follow my blog or have read more than one of my books, you’ll know that God regularly speaks to me about focus and rest in Him no matter what is going on around me.  This came up again part way through the morning service as the congregation sat …

Isaiah 5:8 Woe unto them that join house to house,

Isaiah 5:8  Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth! This verse came back to mind as I was reading the news on ctv.ca.  Two headlines grabbed me …
