who do you run to?


In my morning devotions, I read this verse:  "the name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." ... I noticed a note i had written in the margin  -  "the "righteous" know where to run!" .... 

Yup ... Praise the Lord that we DO know to Whom we can go!

Jesus' thoughts on freedom of speech ...


just a cautionary note to myself ... 
the quote is found in Matthew 12:36-37  ...

my chains fell off ...


Jesus is the chain breaker ... and the way maker ...

it all seemed so real ...

I had a dream …

Jesus was coming … it was some sort of “catching up” … I saw people disappearing and I could feel the pull from heaven to leave, it was time .. I was ready to go be with Jesus … I was in a large house which seemed small … there was a long, dark, narrow hallway … I was passing through it on my way to Him … but as I started down the hallway and towards Jesus, movement in a room i passed caught my eye … it was a small room with very little light in it … bare, with no furnishings and the tones were all dark and not appealing at all … there were some people huddled in the corner of the room … they did not want to leave … i could feel their hostility and fear … whoever they were, I wanted to reach out to them in love and concern … I stopped and said: "Jesus is here and He is calling for me to come … He wants  you to come too" … I tried to get them to follow me out of that dark place … I knew I had only moments before Jesus took me and i didn’t want them left behind … 

Then … I woke up … I don’t know what happened next … but I do know that  Jesus will return at some point in history … whether He gives a shout for us to meet in heaven ... or whether I die and leave earth the natural way … one day - there will be an end to our lives … NO  ESCAPING  THAT REALITY … 

Were you the ones I saw huddled in that familiar corner, not wanting to leave it’s seeming comfort … please consider Jesus and His offer of life … if I am wrong about this faith of mine, I have lost nothing … but if you do not know Jesus and you ignore such a great gift of salvation, you have lost everything for all eternity …  choose Jesus ... before your choice is taken away.

what concerns you?



from our tv church service last week ... good words to live by ... only be concerned with what JESUS has to say on any given matter ... HIS opinion is the one that counts.

encouraging myself from a past blog post

it's a rain day here in middle canada ... very odd for january ... middle of winter ... and sometimes with drastic changes of weather, come drastic changes in my husband's health and the chronic pain he struggles with ... but i found an encouraging post (of mine from a few years back!) that the Lord must have put there ... to encourage me on this future day ... so sharing with any and all who may feel like they have a load too heavy to carry ... our Creator God, designer of the universe and Saviour of our souls is bigger than any problem/obstacle we may face ...




see the little blue dot in the lower right hand corner?  compare it to the sun ...  that's where we live!!!!  this NASA graphic really captures the smallness of earth, compared to almost anything else out there !!! 

it reminds me of the Psalm that says:
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

i pray that you rest easy in the knowledge that God is way way bigger than any problem you may face today ...
