Reflections on Psalm 102

So here’s the deal on Psalm 102 …..  the afflicted Psalmist is crying out to God!!  He’s physically and mentally down…… can’t eat or sleep, groaning, derided by his enemies, lonely, and amidst all this, he feels like God, Himself, must be angry with him. Evidently Zion (Jerusalem) has been attacked and is in shambles.  … Continue reading Reflections on Psalm 102

Reflections from Psalm 93, as seen thru a Coronavirus lens………

This unnamed Psalmist is seeing God high and lifted up — REIGNING — ROBED — ESTABLISHED — NEVER MOVED — EVERLASTING! And it occurs to me….. maybe I’m looking elsewhere. v.1  The Lord reigns; He is robed in majesty; the Lord is robed; He has put on strength as His belt.  Yes, the world is … Continue reading Reflections from Psalm 93, as seen thru a Coronavirus lens………

The morning shouts…. The evening shouts….. and so do I!

A January morning reflection on Psalm 65:5-8 Who even is a God like You? A God who answers us with awesome and righteous deeds?  As David said, You are our God who saves us, the God who is our hope, the God who establishes mountains, and stills the roaring of seas, waves and people -- … Continue reading The morning shouts…. The evening shouts….. and so do I!

So what does it matter……????

I came across a prayer journal this morning…. dated August 5, 2007….. it was my Dad’s birthday.  And perhaps because it’s the CHRISTmas season, I paused and lingered over it.  Journals are somewhat like photo albums,….. only they give you a glimpse back in time at the state of your mind and heart, rather than … Continue reading So what does it matter……????

Good times; bad times; God times (and the dreaded semicolon)

Good times; bad times; God times  (and the dreaded semicolon......) (A reflection on Psalm 30:6-12) There will be “good times”.  David had them — I have them — you have them. v.6-7 As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.”  By Your favor, O Lord, You made my mountain stand … Continue reading Good times; bad times; God times (and the dreaded semicolon)

How to travel with a LARGE family and not kill each other…… and How to travel this thing called “life” and finish well — they are one and the same!

So we took a trip to Colorado…. 10 of us.  The criteria was:  having the root system of either BEING Little or having married a Little (bless).  That link created a dynamic which spanned from age 2+ (who was post potty-training) to age 68!  Sprinkled within that range was one teenager, one middle-schooler, one elementary … Continue reading How to travel with a LARGE family and not kill each other…… and How to travel this thing called “life” and finish well — they are one and the same!

God Speaks……. without words!

Psalm 19:1 “The Heavens declare the Glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.” I don’t think I know the person (be them saved or unsaved, a believer or not) who isn’t totally awed and taken aback with the amazing beauty of the sky!  It’s just that I know “WHY” and they may … Continue reading God Speaks……. without words!

So everybody’s dealing with something…….

So everybody IS dealing with SOMETHING!  And most of our “SOMETHINGS” have a common thread….. * we weren’t expecting it * we didn’t want it * we can’t seem to get rid of it * it invades our thought process * it seems to set itself up on the throne of our world * and … Continue reading So everybody’s dealing with something…….

Possibility and Promise…..

Are you an “end-result” kinda person?  I’ve noticed that this is how some of the marketing sorts grab our attention, evidently assuming that we are that “end-result” kinda person!  And it makes sense, actually……   Here’s what I want to happen!!  And here’s how it’s gonna!  It’s the principe of the “IF / THEN math"!  … Continue reading Possibility and Promise…..
