Psalm 65:1 - "There will be silence before You"
I love that this song begins with something that most musicians do not know how to use effectively – silence. After 3 days free from the “droid” of my text messages, the passionate sounds of Pink when the phone rings (yes I have a Pink song as my ringtone), the pull of Facebook (or should I say void!), the piling up of emails in my inbox and work concerns, I have only begun to understand the value of…Continue

You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know every thought that have. You know every choice. You know every motive and reason for who I am. You know every desire in my heart.
You know when I sit and when I rise. You perceive my thoughts from afar. You know when I wake up and when I go to bed – and everything that happens throughout my days and nights. You truly see me as I am.
You discern my going out and my lying down. You are familiar with all…Continue
16 And He called for a famine upon the land;
He broke the whole staff of bread.
17 He sent a man before them,
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18 They afflicted his feet with fetters,
He himself was laid in…
From my journal last night –
"Addiction may seem to start term to some of you. The woman who is serving so faithfully at church – surely, there's nothing wrong with that. And who can blame the man he stays long at the office to provide for his family? Sure, you may look forward to the next meal. More than most people do, and your hobbies can be a nuisance. Sometimes, but to call any of this anaddiction seems to stretch the word of bit too far.
"I have one simple…Continue
This morning during my prayer time, I prayed this chapter that one of my BOB shared last night. One of the things I am doing is praying chapters of the Bible over myself. I changed this chapter to be about me and not the Corinthians and thought I would share how this chapter reads when it's personal.
2 Corinthians 4 (NIV)
Present Weakness and Resurrection Life
1 Therefore, since through God’s mercy I have this ministry, I do not lose heart. 2 Rather, I…
Most of us are incapable of "going it alone." Whether it is in our careers, our personal relationships, or in life, we all need others if we are to achieve the level of success we desire. Besides, what's the point of having it all if we have no one we care about to share it? You may choose to work with others, you may ignore them, or you may choose to work against them, but the greatest successes in life come to those who incide with those of another, not only does the power of your combines…Continue
If you have a friend who goes out of his way to help cement friendships between others, consider yourself fortunate indeed. In today's frantic, mobile, throwaway society, such individuals are exceedingly rare. With the demands placed upon us by our careers, our families, and the hectic pace of daily life, most of us have little time for ourselves, and even less for our friends. Yet we know that friendship freely given and gratefully received is one of life's greatest gifts. - Napoleon…Continue
Goes Out of His Way to Bait His Hook With What the Fish Prefer
Which might not be a bad tip for those who wish to succeed in relationships. Just as in a conversation it's a good idea to listen more than you talk, it is also wise in relationships to think about the well-being of others more than you think about your own wishes and desires. When you constantly strive to treat others in the same way you would like them to treat you, you become a person whom others like to be…Continue
Most of us have two basic questions about others when we enter into a relationship. They are: Can I trust you? and Do you really care about me? Depending upon our previous success in partnerships with others - personal or business - the answers may be slow in coming. Confidence in another is often developed gradually as those involved in the relationship commit themselves to each other's success and happiness.
Although trust and confidence are the basic underpinnings of all…Continue
It's difficult to remember in the heat of a disagreement that it takes two to quarrel. It may help to remember that no one can disagree with you while you are agreeing with them. This is not to suggest that you should compromise your principles. It is possible, however, to remain true to your beliefs while simultaneously searching for common ground that will enable you to work productively with others who may at first disagree with you.
When others are upset with you or with a…

I'm still being allowed to receive "sheer gifts" during times of trial and tribulation. Let me explain my day to you ...
I was to go to the Sharp National Dealer Meeting in Las Vegas today. My flight left at 6:00am. I woke up at 5:15am - I'd slept through my alarm which wakes me up every single day without fail. Thinking it was 4:00am when I awoke and I needed to get in the shower to leave, I happened to glance at my phone and saw the time. I've never missed a flight in…Continue
Does God ever need more patience with his people than when they are praying? We tell him what to do and how to do it. We pass judgments and make appreciations in our prayers. In short, we do everything except pray. No Bible school can teach us this art. What school has prayer on its curriculum? The most important thing a man can study is prayer. But where is it taught? Let us strip off the last bandage…Continue

"In nature is easy to watch the activity carried on by desire. The very perpetuation of the various species is guaranteed by the presence of desire, and each individual member of each species is sustained and nourished by the natural operation of desire. Every normal creature desires a mate, and so the perpetuation of life is achieved. Every creature desires food, and the life of each is supported. The desire is the servant of the God of nature and waits on His will.
Draw Nigh to God, from Meat for Men by Leonard Ravenhill
There are several reasons why some people cannot be approached. First, they are the great and mighty of earth, princes and potentates, who are behind high walls and are guarded. Or they are guarded for other reasons than greatness. Lunatics and criminals, for instance, might well be put in a safe place. In the areas where most of us circulate, there are also those we cannot approach because of a something in their…Continue

I heard the song Landslide on the Sing Off earlier this week, and I've not been able to escape it. It has haunted me day after day. After listening to many versions of it and feeling in the depths of my heart, I decided to find out what Stevie Nicks meant when she wrote it. Here are some of her quotes about what was going on when she wrote it:
It was about September 1974. I was home and my dad and mom's house in Phoenix, and my father said, "you know, I think it may be... you…Continue
