The Needful Thing: The Prayer-Filled Life

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.  Luke 10:42 (KJV) Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.  Colossians 3:2 Isn’t it funny that many times the things we think are unnecessary and inconsequential end up being the […]

Seeking a Prayer-Filled Life

“As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night.” Psalm 42:1-3a (NKJ)  “Desperately seeking God.”  What would we think if we saw […]

The God of Hope

“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.”  Hebrews 6:19 (NKJ) This weekend as I sat in the airport waiting to return to Kansas City, I glanced briefly at the monitor where worldwide news was being broadcast.  Across the bottom of […]

Stone of Help

“Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the LORD has helped us.” 1 Samuel 7:12 (NKJ) Although I have never considered myself a history buff, I must admit as I listen to hymns, I often wonder what the writer was thinking […]
