A Willing Heart

I’m a sucker for happy endings. Maybe that’s why I get all squishy inside as I read the final chapters of Exodus. I know, I know . . . the end of the book isn’t the end of the journey. … Continue reading

The Glory

Chewing on the opening chapters of Ezekiel this morning. And while a picture might be worth a thousand words, a thousand words are inadequate to describe the vision Ezekiel beheld by the Chebar canal. In the opening chapter, Ezekiel describes … Continue reading

Generous in Every Way

Don’t know exactly why the Spirit has determined to put this on my radar this morning, but evidently He does. As I think about it, I’m probably still getting comfortable with 2Corinthians 8 and 9. I’ve never been a big … Continue reading
