Wrestling in Prayer

"Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God mature and fully assured."

What can I do?

    It's hard watching the effects of Hurricane Harvey. My heart hurts as I read of the requests for baby formula and diapers. I cheer as I see regular Joe's and ordinary people working alongside of first responders. Ordinary heroes tugging along in their fishing boats, using what is available to them to rescue [...]

Ruach Elohim

Ruach Elohim - the wind/breath of God King David saw the same mighty storm clouds of God in Psalm 18 "In my distress I called on Adonai, and cried to my God for help. From His Temple He heard my voice, my cry before Him came into His ears. Then the earth rocked and quaked. [...]

Getting excited

My new book is becoming a reality! It's been a journey and I have seen my story written in their stories. Those who followed Jesus through the countryside of Judea and Galilee in 30 AD had no idea what each day held for them and neither did I as I completed writing each page. The [...]

Let's go back 200 years to the days when street lights were lit by men carrying a long stick with a wick. The lamps were gas and each evening these gas lighters went through the streets lighting the torches to these gas lights. Can you imagine what our lives would be like today had Thomas [...]

Emmaus – the road of escape

They had planned to celebrate Passover with Him, but now the empty cross stood in the shadows of their memories. The gruesome execution tool of the Roman government lined the roads leading [...]

God’s Word opens up the curtain of unbelief

His promises were becoming like the thread of old unraveling garments. Jesus had been dead and buried for three days now. His followers were either in hiding or they were getting the heck out of Dodge. Jesus had warned them, "The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They [...]
