Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:6-7 Little faith, great faith, perfect faith, is there really a difference?  Isn’t faith, just faith?  Recently I was challenged by Pastor Chapin Marsh’s book […]

I just happened to stumble upon this journal entry on my computer.  It was written 3 months before James died. The story of Robert 12/13/08 Today is Love out Louder Day for Calvary Chapel. It is the day that thousands of volunteers show up at the church at 7:30 a.m. and are sent out into […]

“Therefore, the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I promised that your branch of the tribe of Levi would always be my priests. But I will honor those who honor me, and I will despise those who think lightly of me. 1 Samuel 2:30 “Here we go” she texted right before she took her math […]

It was a typical afternoon; final school bell rings and at about 3:15 p.m. in walks my most favorite kindergartener, Sonia.  Her beaming smile makes me anticipate what she is holding in her hands, a little plastic jar with a white lid.  Inside I see what appears to be a few insects.  She walks over […]

“You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I […]

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:19 Mary seems to get my attention in the scriptures. Maybe its because I can relate to her as a mom. Seeing the movie “The Passion of Christ” some of the scenes that impacted me the most were Mary’s suffering. Regardless […]

Now the slaves and the police had made a charcoal fire because it was cold, and they were standing around it and warming themselves.  Peter also was standing with them and warming himself.  John 18:18 Listening to a Bible teaching on the restoration of Peter, I have a scene stuck in my mind.  Peter standing […]

When you enter the land and plant any kind of fruit tree, regard its fruit as forbidden.  For three years you are to consider it forbidden; it must not be eaten.  In the fourth year all its fruit will be holy, an offering of praise to the Lord.  But in the fifth year you may […]

The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.  Luke 7:15 We see several accounts of Jesus healing people and bringing them back from the dead in the scriptures but this one particular account got my attention.  As I am a part of a bible study currently […]

Aaron shall bring the goat whose lot falls to the Lord and sacrifice it for a sin offering.  But the goat chosen by lot as the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the Lord to be used for making atonement by sending it into the desert as a scapegoat.  Leviticus 16:9-10  The burnt offering, the […]

Show me, O Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. Psalm 39:4 If you knew the day you would die would you live your life differently? Dumb question, of course you would. Then why don’t we live today as if it was our last? […]

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.  Psalm 34:4 I’ve been wrestling with making a decision.  As I have shared the process in my mind and with others, I have been given sorted advice.  Very practical advice such as make a list of pros and cons, and […]
