Our God Is High Tech!


Saw this on our church billboard as I was out for my walk.  With God there is instant access, no fees due.  All paid in full by the blood of Christ. What a deal!!!!

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.(Hebrews 4:16)




I’ve been away from this blog for a while now as family needs have taken precedence.   The death of my awesome mother in law continued to make focusing on things other than blogging, a priority.

But now the busyness has died down somewhat and I find myself thinking of this blog and having little to say at this time.  The words don’t rhyme very well and the profound thoughts are struggling to surface.  So I put up quotes when I find myself interested in posting something.

Not sure where all of this is leading.  I was a faithful blogger for over a year and I enjoyed and thought of writing as my way of touching the lives of others.

Certainly there are many of you out there, way more talented than I.  But I keep trying to encourage and help someone out there who just may read my blog for this reason.

So where do I go from here?   Am I finished with blogging?  Is there another path I am to pursue?  Lots of questions and no clear-cut answers.  So I trust in God’s faithfulness, knowing he has a plan that is not ready to be revealed at this time.

Then the Lord answered me and said: “….. For the vision is yet for an appointed  time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries,  wait for it, because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” ( Habakkuk  2:2-3)

Devotion: Against the Tide

I wanted to share my morning devotion from the flip calendar “God Calling: Expanded Version”

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:12-13

My fishermen-disciples did not find  the fishes ready on the shore in their nets.  I take man’s effort and bless that.  I need man’s effort–he needs My blessing.  This partnership it is that means success.



God chooses to work in concert with us in accomplishing His work on this earth.  Matthew Henry says ” It is the grace of God which inclines the will to that which is good: and then enables us to do it.”
