Suffering and Sweet Anticipation

I read Job 29 and 30 this morning. A stark contrast. A compelling before and after picture. There’s Job’s recollection of the days when he was in his prime and the “friendship of God” (29:4) was upon his tent, versus … Continue reading

Hovering over the first seventeen verses of Revelation chapter two this morning. Chewing on the first three of seven letters written to the churches in Asia. Casting an eye on the pages I’ve just marked up which reflect the well-known … Continue reading

A God at Hand
