Nothing Can Separate Us

Do you remember the old game that we used to play out in the yard, “Red Rover, Red Rover?” Children would stand in two lines facing each other and would link arms or hands. Then, you would call out to an individual on the other team by saying, “Red Rover, Red Rover, we dare Shirley to come over.”

And the Lights Went Out
Daily Devotions 9/29/2008 2:14 AM
We were just finishing up our lunches and getting ready to head out to our son’s flag football game. A small electronic buzz was heard throughout the house and then silence as all of the electricity coming into our house stopped. Ceiling fans slowed quietly to a stop, clocks went blank, lights went out, and we realized that we were without power in the midst of the wild wind storm. The storm was a remnant of Hurricane Ike that barreled through Texas and then whipped back around through the middle of Kentucky,

A Hard Thing
Daily Devotions 9/26/2008 2:37 AM
Elisha asked for something that was beyond Elijah’s power to give. Remember Elijah’s question was what could Elijah give to Elisha. However, Elisha knew that this prophet was a man of God, a man with God’s anointing upon him. He was a man who allowed God to do extraordinary things in his life. He was a prophet who lived life on the edge with the Most High God, El Elyon.

God's Perfect Plan

Last year my youngest son had surgery to remove his tonsils and adenoids. At the time, he was only four, but the doctor felt he had signs of sleep apnea. He had a constant battle to breathe normally. This affected a lot of his daily routine. It really made his life miserable in areas that I took for granted.

Are You Willing to Get Involved?
Daily Devotions 9/24/2008 2:11 AM
There are many times those circumstances in our lives cause us to be a bit squeamish about getting involved. Several months ago, my daughter developed the stomach flu. Now, my children are prone to gagging and throwing up at the drop of a hat, so they are very good about getting directly to the bathroom when they feel the urge to get rid of all that is within them. However, the stomach flu, if you have ever experienced it, does not allow one time to get much of anywhere.

The Beyond-ness of Jesus
Daily Devotions 9/23/2008 2:11 AM
What a day! No human could have invented or crafted that story! Jesus had taken three of His disciples up the mountain to a secluded place. There He was transfigured before their very eyes. The Greek word “transfigured” is metatmorphoo, which is an outward change that comes from within. We derive our word metamorphosis from it. Jesus had removed the cocoon of human flesh and bone. Jesus had revealed His secret identity. Jesus uncloaked His majesty to Peter, James, and John.

Never Alone
Daily Devotions 9/22/2008 4:02 AM
My sales consulting job requires me to travel frequently to all sorts of places in the United States. When I am traveling, I spend lots of time in hotel rooms by myself after visiting with customers throughout the day. For the most part, I have gotten used to being in strange hotel rooms alone since I travel so often. However, every once in awhile, I wake up in the middle of the night, disoriented and fearful of where I am and that no one else is there with me.

My Daily Planner
Daily Devotions 9/19/2008 4:03 AM
Oh, the thought of opening up my daily planner right now just makes me want to cringe inside mentally. Every hour of every day for the next several weeks is booked solid, and in some areas there are double bookings and even triple bookings. My day consists of getting up around 5:00 a.m. and barreling through every minute until collapsing into my bed around 11:00 p.m. with just enough time to sleep before starting the next jam-packed day.

Those Guilty Stains
Daily Devotions 9/18/2008 2:14 AM
Picking up my little girl, Grace, from preschool is such a fun time. We talk the whole way home about her day - what she has done, who she played with, what types of activities she did, and crafts she made. But, most importantly we talk about what she has eaten throughout the day – from breakfast in the morning, all the way through snack time in the afternoon. Now, there are times when I have to hold my tongue when she is trying to tell me about her lunch because I already have a pretty good idea what it might have been without seeing her papers or hearing her stories.

The Vine and Branches
Daily Devotions 9/17/2008 2:06 AM
On the last night with His disciples, I believe the faces of Jesus’ disciples were burning in His heart. His eyes must have been moist. I can see Jesus trying to grab every facial expression and every bit of human eye contact He could for His last few hours with His disciples. He was trying to savor these last moments with them. Yes, He knew He would see them again but only briefly until heaven.
