I haven’t blogged in months, it’s true, so hello readers!

We remember the opening of the Red Sea, and the victory of the drowning of the Egyptians, but we forget the struggle that took place to get them to that point. God told Moses He was going to deliver the people from Egypt. But they didn’t walk out that day. Much struggle happened first. When … More The Red Sea Opened, but not right away

There’s lots of talk lately of a “Red Sea Moment” — when things look impossible, and they are. But GOD. Nothing is impossible for God. The following is Chapter 14 from my eBook, Arm Wrestling with Pharaoh. My usual method of Bible study is to put the scripture first, and then my comments in bold. … More Red Sea Moment
The “Beginner” is me! I finally got my hands on a copy of this timeless classic, first written somewhere between 700 and 279 B.C. Of course my copy is translated into American English. Translators of course will differ on their views. I am interested in “war” in both the physical and spiritual realms. At this … More Beginner’s Guide to The Art Of War
Presence. While they are watching. While they are yelling and throwing stones—God prepares a table for us. In 2 Samuel 16:5-14 we read about King David.

David said no, just let him be. … More In The presence of his ememies

We know that Noah built and ark, filled it with his family and lots of smelly animals. How much of this do we take on the “tradition” of what we are taught instead of looking at what it really says? I noticed something today that I never noticed before. 11 In the six hundredth year of … More Noah’s Ark: It wasn’t just about the rain
“He spit on the ground and made clay from the spittle and He placed this clay upon his eyes.” What?!

It’s time for me to get back on track. I have spent the last few weeks mourning the loss of my brother. I let myself just fall apart. I ate too much. There I said it. I also spent time watching tv.

My brother died two weeks ago If you read books about grief and processing grief, it’s broken down into five stages: Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Pure fantasy. There is nothing methodical about grief. Yes, there is a numbness in the first days right after you hear the news of a loved one’s death. … More The five stages of grief and other fantasies
Yesterday was “one of those days.” The power went out at 1 am and didn’t come back until 9 am. I have Bailey, the faithful alarm clock, who stuck his nose in my face at 7– when I needed to wake up. No coffee. This is not good. The coffee maker is set up the … More One person…
While Jesus was carrying the cross, He fell. His flesh was weak after all the beatings. His humanity had limits. So does ours. That’s why we need God so desperately. I endured a difficult situation at work. It was a “toxic” work environment. Yelling, swearing, verbal abuse. I finally reached end of what I could … More Jesus fell
When I was in College studying computer science (it was called data processing back then), we were taught the KISS method: keep it simple, stupid. Sometimes the best answer is the simple one. No sense getting all complicated; it’s not impressing anyone. We try to figure out the answers and get all overwhelmed. Sometimes we … More Keep It Simple, Saint
