A Prayer as Your Light Grows Dim and Darkness Consumes

Lord, You are the Light of the World. In You there is no darkness. In You is found the hope of mankind.

There is no shadow of turning with You — only light, as we behold Your glory.

A Whirlwind Prompts the Omnipotent God to Speak

It feels like a whirlwind, doesn’t it? Every day is wrought with chaos, confusion, and despair. Every day is rife with hopelessness. Dim, empty eyes stare beyond the masks in their search for peace.

I AM anything you have need of: protection, provision, strength, peace, healing …

Grasping the Wonder of God in Times of Uncertainty

The porch swing rocked in peaceful rhythm. My spirit stirred as I looked up from my Bible, raising it to my breast and grasping the wonder of God its pages contained. I had just read these words, “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You” (Job 42:5).

I looked toward the ridge where the sun began its evening descent. Magenta began rising above the trees.
