Uncommon Sense

I have always appreciated people with common sense. The problem with such an open and broad personal definition of sensibility is its narrow interpretation. It is a sense common to those who think alike and see the world through the same interpretive lens. To those...

Moral Rot and Its Remedy

“When there is moral rot within a nation, it’s government topples easily” (Proverbs 28:2). Moral rot is not isolated to governments or their representative political parties. It is a possibility in our individual lives, marriages, businesses, or any endeavor of life....

Get Ready

In March of last year, Jan and I sensed the Lord asking us to step back from what we had been doing and enter a time of sabbatical. The timing, by the wisdom of the Lord, aligned with the national time of closure and lockdown. Our sabbatical was more than a reprieve...

Discerning Scarlet Threads of Revelation

Many are declaring their opinion and confidently prophesying outcomes. It can become a bit overwhelming if we try to swim through these crowded prophetic waters hoping to exercise discernment. Midstream, before the time of fulfillment, it can feel as though we are...

Loyalty to God

In the late 90s, Jan and I were assigned to a posting in Europe to help care for churches and their leaders. Our assignment involved several nations. We love the people of the European continent. We have many fond memories and remaining friendships from that...

Creator God – Creative People

There is a vast difference between being the Creator God and being a creative person. That difference is obvious and not just the fact that He is God, and we are part of His creation. The difference is in the origin of all creativity. It begins in the heart of God and...

Standing on the Edge of Revelation

Many times, when someone thanks me for some insight or point of wisdom I offer, if I am alone, I get down on my knees and thank the Lord. I thank Him because just moments before either writing or speaking something, what I shared was not in my mind. It was delivered...

Spiritual Discoveries

We can walk right by truth or a perception of reality and not perceive its existence. Only when it is revealed to us does it become a personal discovery. In 1853, a mule owned by a gold prospector named John. W. Hillman led him to the rim of Crater Lake in southern...
