May It Be

Yesterday, we looked at how Zechariah questioned an angel’s declaration of a promised child. He questioned the possibility because of the ages of both him and his wife. Today, we look to Mary and her interaction with the angel announcing the promise of Jesus. The possibility again is questioned, but this time it’s different. For … Continue reading May It Be

Until I Become Prayer

Psalm 109:4 says, “Though I love them, they stand accusing me like Satan for what I’ve never done. I will pray until I become prayer itself (TPT). Our focus for today: “Until I become prayer itself” or “I give myself to prayer.” The Psalmist was in a tough spot. He was trying to love people … Continue reading Until I Become Prayer

A new marble cutting board. An over-the-sink … Continue reading Isn’t It Enough

Pastors are holding worship services. Pastors are being arrested. All of this is because of the defiance to the government. There is separation of church and state. … Continue reading Stop Testing God

My Prayer, My Life

Consider how often you pray. Do you pray only when you are in church? Do you pray before meals? Do you pray only when you need something? Maybe you pray every morning or every evening. Consider your prayer life. The Psalmist speaks of prayer life as just that – his life. For some, this may … Continue reading My Prayer, My Life
