The Silence of God

God Speaks–Are You Listening?

I Did It My Way

“Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults.”  Psalm 19:12 (NIV) “My Way” is a song popularized in 1969 by Frank Sinatra.    Although this work became his signature song, his daughter Tina Sinatra says the legendary singer came to hate it.  Although he didn’t like it, the song “stuck”.  She shared her father’s […]

God is His Word

“The law of the LORD is perfect.”  Ps. 19:7 (NKJV) Words reflect a person’s true character.  They show what he or she truly is (Matt 12:34; Mark 7:15).  This is also true of God.  However, where human words are frail and finite, God’s words are creative, perfect, and powerful.  God’s Word (Hebrew, debar; Greek, logos […]
