This is the second of three events we see in the "historical interlude" in the middle of the book of Isaiah, all related to King Hezekiah. These are cross-referenced in II Kings 20 and II Chronicles 32....continue reading "Isaiah 38"
I'm asking God for a specific miracle in my life; and this season is robbing me of normal sleep and peace. A few years ago I read a book by Lou Giglio who challenged the reader to meditate on the Lord's Prayer for 30 days every time a need comes to mind or you heart is unsettled. Looks like it's time to take up the challenge once again....continue reading "Psalm 23"
I had the privilege of being asked to speak at the annual Women's Retreat I attend through Rocky Mountain Calvary, Women of Calvary. The theme was Pursuing Holiness, based on the book, Pursuit of Holiness, by Jerry Bridges. The previous several posts were my notes as I was reading the book. Below is the final presentation talking points and slide content. This isn't a transcript of what was actually said, but the raw notes of what I planned to say.
Here's a link to a cell phone recording of the actual presentation. I'll update the post with the official video when I get the link....continue reading "Holy Harvest Presentation"

Jonah's about to get a crash course in the concept and need to die to self....continue reading "Jonah 2"
It's Leader Day for the women's ministry at my church. It's a time for the bible study leaders and other leaders in the women's ministry at both campuses to come together and build one another up so that we can go back to the ladies and shine the light back to them....continue reading "Leader Day 2021"
I start with a confession. I've been in a mood as of late. And not a godly mood. Not everyday and not all of the time; but building for the last couple of years since I was at a graduation party and someone pointed out that my brother and cousin were turning fifty years old. And in the final days before my own 50th birthday, last week, this mood left me weepy and fully self-pity and entitlement....continue reading "Turning 50 and Nehemiah 13"
