Mountains and Valleys

Mountain behind the Valley of Dry Bones of Ezekiel

Over the years I have noticed Christian music has trends in themes. A few years ago everyone was doing variations of Amazing Grace and using the word atmosphere. A little after that it was variants of It is Well and talking to our souls. In recent days the theme I’ve noticed is mountains and valleys. […]

Dangerous Faith in a Safe Space World | God Talk: Nazareth

We had a great sermon this past Sunday. I never had the pleasure of listening to Pastor Raf, as he is affectionately called, preach, and it was surely a blessing. Yet, and a part of me trembles to utter that word, there was a piece in the beginning of his sermon that sent waves of […]

Ear Training | God Talk: Nazareth

I’ve loved music since I was a kid. I always had an ear for melody. My Dad gave me my first instrument, a guitar, when I was five years old. I still have that guitar, newly stringed, though I never did learn to play it. When I was about eight years old, as I may […]

Comfort Zone | God Talk: Nazareth

I do find it so intimidating when there are several messages in my head at once, and God demands, “Write!” without first telling me which parts go with what. I trust He will provide the sorting as I work out the message here. And perhaps that is indeed the beginning of this particular message about […]

Never Alone | Do I believe?

The Lord went from whispering to shouting: Do you believe? There are so many areas of faith where this touched in the last couple […]

When Corey and I left our long time church for good back in January of 2017 the Lord had already graciously provided a new community for us. The previous fall saw us on mission to explore the churches in and around Jasper. I had actually already had a sit down with the pastor of one […]

Silent Weeping

It’s been a weird couple days, and it’s strange the things that hit you. Sunday we hear of a church shooting. It touches me, of course, it does. Yet, no weeping. There are ongoing personal struggles and frustrations weighing on me, still, no tears. Then, out of the blue, I settle in to look at […]

A Heart | To Have or Not to Have

Embed from Getty Images My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. ~ Psalm 73:26 A phrase is coming up a lot lately. It’s one I’ve heard for years in Christian circles, and didn’t pay much attention to. But lately, the idea of having a “heart” for […]

Believing | God, The Devil and Demons

Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.  ~ 1 Peter 5:8 The Struggle I realized this week that I’ve been struggling for some time with God. Over the last couple days in particular, I have come to a place of recognizing that I am verging on furious with Him, which is odd for me. […]
