A True Friend

John 15:14: Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. God created man to be His friend. If we are the friends of Jesus we have deliberately and carefully to lay down our life for Him. It is difficult, and thank God it is! When once the relationship of being the friends […]

Best Friends

God has designed us to crave company. We desire friends, just like Anne of Green Gables did. Shannon is my best friend. We are very different in our expression but virtually indistinguishable in our passion. Here is what I mean by that: §  Shannon is an extrovert. She radiates and thrives in a crowd. Others […]

Members of the Body

Wes used to always tell me he thinks I have the most beautiful hands in the world. As we courted he loved to hold my hands, to caress them, to study them, and to compliment me. It was very sweet! But if my hand were severed from my body and given to him, he would […]

Kindred Spirits

Do you have a best friend?  I can’t help but think of Anne of Green Gables and her quest for a bosom friend. She described her as a kindred spirit, a trusted confidant that would share in her triumphs and defeats, her joys and sorrows, her laughter and her tears, and would partake of her […]

The Secret Place

Proverbs 25:2, 14: It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter…. The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant. Lest you think this doesn’t apply to you, the Scripture declares we are […]

Sweet Somethings….

Intimacy with your Maker ushers us into a deeper and richer relationship; one of intimate daily instruction. As we choose the better portion, the same one Mary chose, and sit at His feet, worshipping Him for who He is, receiving His love and grasping for ever deeper revelation; then Jesus pours Himself into us. Not […]

The Heaven Of His Presence

Our entire being was created to partake of Christ, we are vessels designed to hold Him. Trying to fill our lives with anything else is vanity! We desperately need Jesus to permeate all five of our senses… to saturate us with His love  and to transform our relationship to one of intimate adoration so that […]

Father, Brother

We’ve seen that Jesus is our ÿ Fiercely Protective Brother: V  The love that PROVED His commitment came down from the glory of heaven and took on flesh. V   He actually PURCHASED freedom for us; when we were still His enemies, He loved us like this…. V  And now, He PROMISED to give us all […]

A Multi-Faceted Relationship

Trekking through the African bush to get the shot . . . that was the day I got heat stroke. Remember ladies, His tender mercies and loving-kindness crown us. These love relationships so exceed our earthly relationships that I venture to say you may even find this unbelievable, so you must intentionally grab hold of […]

Do Not Grow Weary

Revelation 21:4-7: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, […]
