Small and Great Alike

In today’s verse, we read about the small and great alike. Deuteronomy 1:17 says, “Do not show partiality when deciding a case; listen to small and great alike. Do not be intimidated by anyone, for judgment belongs to God. Bring me any case too difficult for you, and I will hear it” (CSB). This verse … Continue reading Small and Great Alike

Everyone Everywhere

Psalm 100:1 says, “Lift up a great shout of joy to the Lord! Go ahead and do it—everyone, everywhere!” (TPT).  Other translations say it this way: praise the Lord all the earth or praise the Lord all the lands. How will everyone everywhere praise the Lord? How will all the earth, all the lands, praise … Continue reading Everyone Everywhere

If you don’t know about this amazing product, it appears in one of my favorite television shows, I Love Lucy, in my all-time favorite episode of the show. Lucy … Continue reading Overwhelmed

Empowered for Triumph

Each and Every

In Psalm 92:2, we read: “At each and every sunrise we will be thanking You for Your kindness and Your love. As the sun sets and all through the night, we will keep proclaiming, ‘You are so faithful!’” (TPT). You might think this sounds redundant. Depending on your particular situation, it might be very repetitive. … Continue reading Each and Every

Enduring Works

When you look back on the years past, what is the same? It amazes me when I consider all of the changes that have occurred over the years. Things are continuously changing in our lives. This happened long before COVID-19 came on the scene.  I remember in high school, I was editor of the school … Continue reading Enduring Works

Our Eternal Home

“Lord, You have always been our eternal home, our hiding place from generation to generation” (Psalm 90:1 TPT). The Psalmist makes this declaration, yet it’s not something we always live out. We may know that as believers in Jesus, as children of God, that we are held in the safety of His hands (John 10:28). … Continue reading Our Eternal Home

Radiance of Your Presence

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You, who hear the joyful call to worship, who know the festal shout (NIV, NLT, ESV). The Passion Translation says it this way: “O Lord, how blessed are the people who experience the shout of worship, for they walk in the radiance of Your presence” (Psalm 89:15). … Continue reading Radiance of Your Presence
