Rise and Shine!

The sun shines upon us once more

Each ray bringing the warmth of hope anew

The Son shines upon us once more

Each day bringing the joy of salvation for sinners alike, for me and you

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

(Isaiah 60:1 ESV)

Faithful God

I’ve usually been an inquisitive character. Some have gone as far as saying that I think too much, but life is so full of questions: What does this mean? How does that work? Why?

There are two things, however, that I can assure you I am certain of. The first is God’s love for me and mine in return and the second is that He remains faithful no matter what. In a world of so many uncertainties, I’m glad to be sure of at least those two things.

Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.  (Psalm 36:5 NLT)


During a recent flight, I sat quietly looking out the window and had the following thought:

Since the weather was cloudy and a bit rainy, the pilot decided to go above the clouds for a smoother flight. Then I saw it, we had reached an altitude where the colors seemed inverted. Let me explain. At first, we flew among the white clouds with the blue seas beneath us but at a higher altitude, the clouds fell under us and all around were nothing but hues of blue.

This made me think of birds. When we see the flocks fly by, they are usually in the first perspective, clouds above and ground below. There are, however, a few species that go beyond flying; some birds soar.

To soar is to go above the tempest. Flocks of birds fly, but the several species that soar at higher altitudes do so alone. It is there above the clouds, in that moment of soaring alone, that we can appreciate an entirely different perspective.

Sometimes we are called to soar.

But they who wait upon the Lord will get new strength. They will rise up with wings like eagles… (Isaiah 40:31a NLV)


What the 🌎🌍🌏 needs

I’m not sure if your side of the world is looking like mine right now, but it seems everywhere I look there’s either talk of war or devastation from a natural disaster. When it’s not one of these two things, it’s something else. The bottom line is that there is plenty of unrest everywhere we turn. Disease, war, natural disasters, and so many other pestilences plague our globe. Not to sound like a doomsday preacher, but if we read The Word, we will know that these things are supposed to take place. Luckily, not all is lost. There is still hope.

Whatever the problem may be, whatever the question, the answer, the solution is Jesus.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.  (John 10:10 ESV)

We Remember

Sixteen years ago the country was shaken by an event that was sure to end up in history books and documentaries. While we commemorate 9/11 and say will never forget, let’s also remember He who has been long forgotten and slowly pushed out of this great nation.
