What does it mean to be ready? I could say, "I am ready for supper," if I am hungry and it is approaching dinner time. Or, "I am ready to watch the Super Bowl," once the playoffs have determined the teams and the big day has arrived. Toward the end of one's life, one might … Continue reading Are You Ready?
I recently read Psalm 39 and am struck by the relevance that this Psalm holds toward an eternal outlook on life and our present times. Many in this day and age are living in fear; fear of COVID, fear of government leadership (or lack thereof); fear of financial uncertainty; fear of dying; fear of pain; … Continue reading Sojourner
We are living in strange and challenging times. No matter what decisions our leaders make and what happens, no one can know for sure whether a different course of action regarding this virus and the economy would have yielded better results.

Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.” The Lord is sovereign over all of creation. The world, and everything in it, has been firmly set in place. God exists outside of time … Continue reading Firmly Established
Today, I will continue to break down Psalm 96 in the Reflections on Eternity series. 4 For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.5 For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.6 Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary. God, as revealed to us in … Continue reading Worthy
Today, I am going to begin a series of short posts entitled Reflections on Eternity. The other day, I read Psalm 96, and the implications and truths I saw directly correlate with an eternal view of life. I have not been able to get this Psalm off of my mind since, and I am excited … Continue reading Tell of His Salvation
