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 […]

My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.  Yet not as I will, but as you will.  Matthew 26:39 I can remember praying this several times regarding James…Lord, please, fix him or take him, but nevertheless, not my will but Your will be done.  You may have prayed the same.  […]

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.   […]

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver. Proverbs 25:11 I love the image this verse portrays.  I can see it in my mind.  Maybe it is because my mom used to have a basket of “fake fruit” on the table in the living room in my childhood home.  […]

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13 After the death of James, I would have moments of hopelessness.  The grief would overwhelm me at times.  I called it my “little black cloud”.  I envisioned, just like in a cartoon, a little black cloud […]

The Lord is my light and my salvation.  Should I fear anyone?  The Lord is a fortress protecting my life.  Psalm 27:1 Reading Psalm 27 this morning, I feel David’s heart.  I knew exactly what he felt because I’ve been there. IronMan Florida 2011.  After my first triathlon at Disney World in Orlando 2005, God […]

Do not be afraid.  Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today….The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still.  Exodus 14:13-14 I absolutely love this section of scripture!  Hollywood couldn’t create a better, gripping, nail-biting scene in my opinion.  After many plagues, Pharaoh finally “lets the […]

“Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her.  Untie them and bring them to me.  If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”  This took place to fulfill what […]

Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”…Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.  Matthew 20:29-32  At first read of this area of scripture, I think, Jesus […]
