Your Story, Your Scars, Your Jesus

 Scars We all have them.  Some of us have a few, some have many; but we all have them.  For there to be a scar, there first had to be a wound or an injury; a wound deep enough to leave a visible sign of trauma.  A scar is a distinguishing mark that indicates you have been hurt in some way. But you can’t have [...]

Hidden in the Hallelujah of the Psalms

Open to the Psalms, the Bible is in one hand and a Hebrew dictionary in the other.  The focus, to discover what is hiding beneath the printed words of the Psalms.  There is richness and depth to be found, and it can only be found by digging deeper into God's Word. I love doing this!  Digging into God's Word and really studying what lies beneath opens [...]

THE GIFTS OF THE MAGI, THE GIFT OF JESUS

  Magic From The East Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?” They saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of frankincense and of myrrh. Matthew 2:1-2, 11 Magi traveled from afar [...]

The Significance of Bethlehem: The Message of the Birth

You know the story don’t you, the story of the birth of Jesus? The story of Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem only to find there was no room for them at the inn. The story of how Mary gave birth to Jesus in a stable, wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger. You know the story, right? But why Bethlehem; [...]

What I’m Thankful For

Why I'm Thankful For What We Don't Have We don’t have a big house that’s decorated to look like something from a page of Better Homes & Gardens.  It isn’t even worthy of being pinned on Pintrest.  We don’t have furniture that matches, and anything considered nice at one point has since been destroyed by the cats.  We don’t drive expensive cars.  In fact, the [...]

  • King of the Jews written in different languages on a wooden sign.

A Sign On The Cross That Spoke To The World

There was a sign, crudely carved and visible to all. A sign declaring His name, His title and His purpose. A sign Pilate had placed above the head of the One who was raised up for all the world to see. A sign to display the truth, just like the man hanging from the cross. A sign reading, “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.” [...]

Jesus And The Truth Of Three

Three times Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night before his crucifixion.  Three times the Son begged the Father to withhold the torture and death that was to become Him.  But why? Why not one long, continuous prayer?  Why is Matthew so precise in giving such a detailed account of Jesus’ time in the Garden?  The reason might surprise you. Permanence, Truth [...]

The Meaning of the Name of Jesus

Names Have Meanings What is in a name?  Why are names so important?  A name is a word or set of words by which we are called and as parents, we spend countless hours trying to come up with the perfect name for our children.  Why?  Because names are how we become known.  They are how we are recognized, acknowledged and could even speak to [...]

Gone Off The Deep End

Meeting Jesus Many years ago there was a man whom many referred to as a zealot. He had an earnest enthusiasm, was eager to please those in authority and was driven by a seemingly untamable and undeniable passion for truth. This man then had an experience that changed his life forever. He met Jesus. He met his Savior, and from that moment on his life [...]
