    Video Version ------------------------------ I am encouraged by the heart of Psalm 144 today, an honest cry to God, a real prayer, a genuine plea. Psalm 144:5-9 Part your heavens, O Lord, and come down; touch the mountains, so that they smoke. 6 Send forth lightning and scatter [the enemies]; shoot your arrows and rout them. 7 Reach down your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hands of foreigners…… That sounds like an appropriate authentic prayer for t…

  • Digging Ditches

    Video Version ------------------- I was inspired by an email recently that made reference to a story in II Kings chapter 3 about digging ditches. The story is about three kings in a wilderness. They couldn’t find water for themselves or their animals. They were out of ideas and resources, tired and thirsty, and decided to consult Elisha the prophet.

Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my inheritance, therefore I will hope in him!’” (Lamentations 3:21-24) Dare to hope!

    Video Version -------------------------- To be honest about my own feelings right now, today, to be real and authentic, I’m feeling the weight of a lot of LOSS. There is the loss of routine---everything is different right now. Loss of jobs. Events have been canceled. Trips that have been planned for a long time are now not happening. Loss of freedom. A big loss for me is not getting together for EASTER. Celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus is a big deal, and the loss of not having the…
