    I recently took part in a prayer chain and as my time was drawing to a close I started singing these words...after a few times through I decided to write them down. Jesus Draw near to Jesus Come to Him humbly Seeking His grace Jesus Keep seeking Jesus Come to Him fully Seeking His grace For it is Jesus Only Jesus The Son of the Most High The Son of the King For it is Jesus Only Jesus Word from

    Peter and John were hauled before the leaders and told in no uncertain terms they could not talk about Jesus Christ. They were threatened and that threat was real, palpable. Yet Peter and John, in the face of pressure were able to say: “As for us, we can’t stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20) Think about that for a moment. These two had every reason to NOT speak

    It has been a year since I posted and I think I will be getting back into this a bit more. Going back to school in my late 40's has posed a challenge when it came to writing other stuff. However, I wanted to kick the New Year off the way I have the past few years. Since 2013 I have been encouraging people to seek the Lord for a word for the new year instead of making a new years
  • Sat, 31 Dec 2016 04:24:08 +0000: One Word - The 2017 Edition - Just A Thought
    It has been awhile since I posted, going back to school at 46 doesn't allow a lot of free time. However, I wanted to kick the New Year off the way I have the past few years. In 2013 I became a Compassion blogger. I was drawn to the idea for 2 reasons. One, I love Compassion and have sponsored a few children over the years. Two was the challenge they put out encouraging people to seek the Lord
  • Mon, 05 Sep 2016 15:18:45 +0000: Is God Good? - Just A Thought
    I have often heard the question asked, "Is God Good?" When I answer in the affirmative, the follow up tends to be, "well then why does He allow suffering?" Or even, "Then how can He send people to Hell?" It would seem that everyone wants to experience His grace, mercy and love but no one wants to hear His truth!  We want the good and none of the bad. The Bible clearly
  • Sun, 04 Sep 2016 00:28:49 +0000: This Changed Everything - Just A Thought
    This Changed Everything is a new DVD that comes out this October. I received a advance copy from my friend John Armstrong, author of Your Church is too Small and president of the Act3 Network. The three-part documentary looks at the rich history of the Reformation, examining its good parts while also asking the tough questions about what went wrong in the aftermath. Could division have been
  • Thu, 04 Aug 2016 22:21:13 +0000: Culture - Just A Thought
    I love me some A.W. Tozer. He is one of my all-time favorite authors. I have the majority of the books he wrote during his lifetime. I also have many of the ones released after his death. These latter ones are culled from his sermons and magazine articles. So when I saw that Moody Publishers were putting out a "new" book by A.W. Tozer I immediately requested a review copy. I started digging
  • Fri, 15 Jul 2016 18:41:58 +0000: 5 Books That Changed My Life - Just A Thought
    I love to read. I love to curl up with a good book and will stay up late into the night if I find a real page-turner. Over the years I have read more books than I can count. Five of those books changed or impacted my life in significant ways. Those books are: 1. Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret This book was handed to me when I was 15 years old. I had talked to one of the Deacons in my

  • Fri, 20 May 2016 03:06:39 +0000: Finding God in the Hard Times - Just A Thought
    I missed Finding God in the Hard Times the first time it came out in print. Previously published in 2005 under the title Blessed Be Your Name, this book by Matt and Beth Redman is an encouragement to praise God despite the circumstances.  Using the Matt Redman song, Blessed be Your Name, as a lead in, the couple look at life and all it's hardships. They don't shy away from sharing
