Let Pleasure Flow

A meditation on Psalm 36. Sin speaks. Anyone can hear it if they listen. It speaks to the sinner and it speaks to the righteous. “The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes,” Ps. 36:1. Spurgeon says, “Men’s sins have a voice to godlyContinue reading “Let Pleasure Flow”

GLOATING – Karma is a Bitch

“Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice, or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them.” Proverbs 24:17, 18. I live for the poetic justice that life flings at a jerk. We all know the gladdening of the heart that wellsContinue reading “GLOATING – Karma is a Bitch”

FRETTING OVER WICKED PEOPLE

“Do not envy wicked men, do not desire their company; for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble. Do not fret because of evildoers or be envious of the wicked, for the evildoer has no future hope, and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out.” Proverbs 24:1, 2, 19,Continue reading “FRETTING OVER WICKED PEOPLE”

FOSTER CARE AS AN ADULT

My friend, I’ll call her Rhythm and Blues, wrote this marvelous work that the world needs to see. Do you know? When will you know? My historical trauma. When will you stop saying, “oh I’m sure you don’t want to talk about that.” Or “I’m sorry I asked” when we are talking about childhood.  If youContinue reading “FOSTER CARE AS AN ADULT”

WITH ALL OF MY HEART

“I will praise you with all my heart;” Psalm 9:1a. When I think of praise (Heb. Yadah), I think of verbal expression of one’s greatness. This verse corrects my definition. Praise is not just verbal. It’s a heart matter. Hmmm. In Pr. 4:23 Solomon told us, “above all things guard your heart, for from itContinue reading “WITH ALL OF MY HEART”
