Writing happens when the Spirit offers me a pencil.

The Sword

T

The sword is a choice to turn from what was and seek all that is Christ, or to push Him away and face the consequences. That is the dividing line. Each person and every generation has to make their decision on their own. Are you a barrier to their salvation?

Healed

H

This morning I recalled Kate and the testimony of healing she gave about being led to the healing rooms at Bethel in Redding.  It was her last resort, as the doctors could not help, and the prescriptions didn't work. I was also reminded of the day in February 2009 when I sat in an examination room to await the next series of diagnostic procedures to find a solution to my physical ailments.

Crushable

C

It's great how we find commonality and ways to connect with a wider population who are like-minded. It feels good to fit "in". So, we go all in. But do we have the same connection with the the body of Christ? The same pride of ownership?

Unlocked

U

There are some gifts that once received, perpetually bless the heart. When we are connected through Christ, we can glean from one another new ways of seeking His face.

It’s Your Thing

I

Do we really measure our WORTH by what we do, the things we have, how others perceive us, or what we amount to financially? Is that all there is to life? Or are we worth loving as we are - without any ‘thing’?

IF?

I

“IF You can?” and then followed with a challenge to the man and his child – to BELIEVE. It is not going to be the wave of a magic wand by which this boy will be healed. But first, do you BELIEVE I can do this? That is what Jesus challenged him with.

The Special Plate

T

Saul had gone in search of his father's livestock and ended up at the home of a seer. A special plate had been served to him. This was too much. How would he tell the folks back home? Inner thoughts race when the unknown steps up to greet us.

What we Bring

W

Just as each person comes into the church through the entry door, they also bring with them who they are. The personal mess of troubles, lingering doubts, hidden secrets, worries, habits and suspicions are all brought right on into the church, the sanctuary, a building on a plot of land where people gather.
