 NEW THINGS

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19; 

Happy New Year! Rejoicing over the merriment and good news of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ at Christmas ought to fill our cups so full that the overflow spills grace into the new year. Every new year salutation is saturated with good will, peace, and prosperity, but 2022 is especially exciting.

“And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his Kingdom there shall be no end.” Luke 1:33

Recently I was sitting at our kitchen table with two of my grandchildren, Jackson Wesley and Emory Grace, who are two and almost four respectively. I had a yellow legal pad and pen in hand to record the Christmas wish list which I was prompting. No matter what the suggested item was, a puppy, a skateboard or raspberry shoes, the answer from Jackson and Emory

Thank-full-ness

“It is a good thing to give thanks un- to the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: to shew forth thy loving kindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night.” Psalm 92:1,2

The fall season is a most splendid time of the year. The crops are being harvested, the leaves are changing colors, and the temperature is cooler. The sky seems bluer in the fall and that should remind us of God’s faithfulness and also help us keep Him at the top

Peace at the pond

“And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.” Exodus 15:27

A few days ago two young men stopped their car on Railroad Bed Road adjacent to where I was mowing grass. Thinking they may be needing directions, I shut off my lawn mower beside the road near their vehicle. One of the guys had rolled a window down and was beckoning me with his hand. When I asked if I coul

Morning glory

“It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22,23

When God sends us a new day, He dresses it with His glory. The morning is the best part of the day because it brings freshness and new grace. After we have rested, we are ready to be tested. The trials and temptations any given day will bring will be easier to handle when we’ve been bathed in morni

Pass the peas, please!

“Brought beds, and basins, and earthen vessels, and wheat, and barley, and flour, and parched corn, and beans, and lentils, and parched pulse, and honey, and butter and sheep, and cheese of kine, for David, and for the people that were with him, to eat: for they said, The people is hungry, and weary, and thirsty, in the wilderness.” II Samuel 17:28,29

It was not an accident that Jesus revealed Himself after His resurrection to a woman in a garden. Nor

Serotinous souls

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Matthew 24:12

Serotinous means late in developing, opening or blooming. Trees and flowers are considered serotinous when they require an adverse “trigger” to disperse seed or exhibit flowers. For example, the Jack pine tree will not regenerate without fire. The Department of Natural Resources in Michigan intentionally sets fire on the Jack pine forest ecosystems so that the forest will thr

“God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah! His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise.” Habakkuk 3:3

We never know where God will show up! Even though the creator and sustainer of the universe is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient, there are times when He is with us, works around us, works for us and works within us and we don’t realize it at the time. Sometimes God shows up in the most unlikely places too! Jesus

“For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.” Isaiah 45:18.

There is nothing which proclaims the greatness and grandeur of Almighty God any better and clearer than the springtime. As I look out of my office window this morning, I see green grass growing where a brown mat of dead carpe

“And he said, Thus saith the Lord, Make this valley full of ditches.” II Kings 3:16

One thing about God that we will never fully understand this side of Heaven is His profound calling upon His people to believe in Him, His word, and His ways. No doubt all children of God have faith, since faith is a fruit of the Spirit. Yet, when God lays out instructions so plain and blunt, often we look the other way as if we are trying to ignore Him or we can’t believe that He

“God shall hear, and afflict them, even He that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, there- fore they fear not God.”>Psalm 55:19

 Life may be full of surprises, but life overflows with changes. Actually, life is so full of changes that it creates a surplus which cannot be contained and so it spills over and creates new spaces of expanded existence. COVID-19 has changed the way we live, shop, communicate and worship. Our government is changing from Republica

Ready or not, 2021 is here! All of us probably are glad to see 2020 go. Yet, much good fruit came during the past year, though not without pruning. COVID 19 loc
