Wrath does not belong to you

“Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay’ says the Lord. ‘But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty give him a drink; for in doing so you will heap burning coals on his head’ […]

Avoid Being a Slinger

One of my most favorite spiritual teachers is Joyce Meyer.  In her devotional “Starting Your Day Right” she speaks of avoiding the slingers.  I will quote from her book, “There were people in the Bible called slingers who defeated their enemies by slinging stones and throwing dirt into their wells, contaminating their life source of […]

The following parable is taken from the Daily Devotional:  At the Feet of Jesus by Joanna Weaver.  I hope you get a similar response to this parable as I got.  I will provide further commentary following this June 26 entry. “The beggar could hardly believe his luck!  Just that morning he’d been prowling the streets […]

Thoughts about love

We all want it.  We all need it.  We all crave to have it perfect in our lives.  What am I talking about — LOVE!  But it seems that the more we crave to see love in our lives the more it seems to elude us.  I believe that the real reflection of how much […]

It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late…; for so He gives His beloved sleep. Psalm 127:2 “Sleep is essential for good health.  Scientists don’t know exactly why we need it but they know what happens when we don’t get enough.  We put ourselves at risk of premature aging, weight […]
