Reflecting God – Embrace Holy Living

Sing The Wonders of God

Psalm 73:10-20 Have you ever witnessed the process of gentling an animal that is wild or feral? A horse, or maybe a cat or dog that has not been around people very much and needs to be tamed. The first step is just getting the animal used to your presence…

The Goodness of God Prevails

Psalm 73:10-20 Over and over, Scripture affirms that our questions do not threaten God. In fact, our searching for answers to complicated questions about the way God works often allows us to deepen our relationship with God as we better understand God’s heart. In Pslam 73, the psalmist continues the…

God’s Kingdom Here

Psalm 73:1-9 One of the lies that can be easy for Christians to believe is that, as followers of Jesus, we should have it easy. We can think that because we believe in God, nothing bad should be able to happen to us and, even more, those who don’t believe…

Forever

Psalm 118:21-29 “Forever” is one of those words that sometimes falls victim to exaggeration. Perhaps someone hasn’t seen a particular person in forever, or it has been forever since they ate at a specific restaurant. Truth be told, “forever” is simply an extended period of time that only seems like…

Holy Moments

Hebrews 4:12-16 You just never know when a holy moment is going to swoop in and hijack your day. I once received a text from a sweet friend while I was working. The text she sent took a lot of courage to write and she was seeking God’s help for…

Grace and Truth

John 1:9-18 I just love how the 66 books of God’s Word are all connected, how the entirety of each and every thought points to Jesus Christ. The Old Testament brought us the law. Jesus’ great-, great-, and then some, grandparents and their peers were watching history unfold. We saw…

As The Wind Blows

2 Corinthians 13:1-8 We can’t see the wind, yet evidence of its existence frequently manifests itself in our day-to-day comings and goings. Sometimes, the wind is a welcome guest, gently rocking the wind chimes on our porches or keeping us cool on a hot summer’s day. On other occasions, the…

Low Batteries

2 Corinthians 12:1-10 Humanity would be lost if suddenly charging cords and batteries of all kinds were to mysteriously disappear. Remote controls, smart phones, ear buds, clocks, cars . . . they all need some sort of rechargeable energy source in order to function as their inventors intended. Without the…

I Told You So

2 Corinthians 11:24-33 Ever felt like saying, “I told you so” so badly that you had to actually bite your tongue in order not to allow those four little words escape your lips? Enjoying a well-placed “I told you so” is very tempting. Putting someone (who obviously refused to listen…

Only Human

2 Corinthians 11:16-23 God knew what He was doing when He used ordinary people to write His Word. He knew that if the Bible was filled with nothing but scholarly dissertations, it would be difficult for some of us to follow along. In 2 Corinthians 11, the ordinary human is…
