This is Your Captain Speaking

I’ve been on an airplane a little too much of late; I’m not a huge fan of flying, if you couldn’t tell. Nevertheless, since I spend a lot of time communing with God mid-flight, He tends to impress certain things on my mind. And as I completed the last leg of my recent journey, it…

I want…You need

There are certain promises in the Bible that are conditional, and this is one of them. Do what the Lord asks of you, and He will give you your heart’s desire. Now you may say, I’ve tried to live for God, but I still haven’t gotten what I wanted. My question to you is, have…

Bountifully Blessed

As I was walking back to my home away from home this evening, I felt weary. It had been a mentally taxing week. Then I noticed the sun – a fiery, orange ball, slowly edging it’s way to the horizon. My hands itched to capture the moment, but my view was obscured by trees. I…

In the Blink of an Eye

It only takes seconds. In a split second, life can change. A sudden, blinding headache; an unexpected diagnosis. And the whole trajectory of your life changes. In the blink of an eye. It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of this life. But at what cost? We are so busy going…

Missing Home?

I am away from home on business this week. And while I am comfortable in my accomodations, I am not settled. It just isn’t home. I long to go home. I long to be with my family. I long to be in my environment. I just can’t imagine staying too long. So why am I…

Don’t be Afraid to Ask

What child do you know, having been offered anything he or she desires, would choose not to get it? I’d be hard pressed to find one. What about you? Did you know that as adults, we struggle with that problem? You may disagree. What adult do you know who would pass up a chance to…

Tapping into the Source

Read the verse above. Which key words or phrases stand out to you? Three (3) grab my attention: 1. “Confidence that we have” – do we have confidence in God? Confidence is built on trust. Trust that God will work things out to our benefit. 2. “Ask anything” – nothing is off limits with God;…

God isn’t Slow – Part 2

We live in a world of the instant. Companies spend exorbitant amounts on research to develop products that appeal to our need for instant gratification. Then billions are spent every year getting those products in our faces. You can have what you want, and you can have it now. Competitors try to outdo one another…

What’s the status of your Cup?

One of my favourite “proverbs” from 2019 was “You can’t pour from an empty cup” which implies the need to take care of oneself; something I believe to be a necessity. In 2020 however, I am looking at the status of my cup a little differently. If I never empty my cup, God cannot keep…

Make that a Double Please

I don’t know about you, but after a little break away from work, I tend to need a double-portion of strength to return. Therefore, I am grateful for today’s Verse of the Day, reminding me that renewal and rejuvenation awaits those who put their trust in God. “But they that wait upon the Lord shall…
