2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. A big thank you to my readers who have visited here and encouraged me with your comments. One of my goals for 2015 is to post more regularly – four times monthly (or once a week). Through […]

Divine Exchange

God became flesh so that I could become spirit. My pastor, Tim Franklin, Ph.D. spoke this phrase during a December 2013 sermon. This truth struck me like an arrow. Simple, yet profound. The mystery of the incarnation boiled down to nine evergreen words. And the Word became flesh and dwelt […]

Diligent New Testament Women

If someone were to surveil your life for a month, say – would the investigative report describe you as “a diligent woman serving the Master?” I was intrigued to read about all the women named by the apostle Paul in his letter to the Christians in Rome recorded in chapter […]

Zia Mary Passed the Torch

“I came as my fathers representative,” I mentioned to an extended family member at a wake honoring the life of our 100-year-old Italian matriarch. My fathers representative. Interesting choice of words. My aged dad at 85 is too unstable in his gait to navigate a 2,000 mile journey by air. […]

Unashamed Love

“Jesus Christ is the personification of fervent passion based in confident joy, not ashamed to call me His Beloved.”   Gary Wiens, Bridal Intercession, p.186 The last few days I’ve been mulling over the fact that Jesus is not ashamed of me. Not that I carry feelings of shame, but I […]

Heart of a Giant Killer

Do you want to have the brave heart of a giant killer? Someone I know is ministering truth in a dangerous part of the world this month. As I was praying for him (and his family), I considered the courage it takes to walk into darkness. One has to know […]

Prayer for Terrorists and God Haters

I wrote this prayer, deriving it from Psalm 9 of King David as written in The Passion Translation. “Lord, I worship you with extended hands as my whole heart explodes in praise! I will tell everyone about Your wondrous works and how Your marvelous miracles exceed expectations. …. The Lord of […]
