They were blind.  Dark is all they saw.  However, there was nothing wrong with their hearing. They knew that Jesus, the Healer, was near.  So they shouted their cry for mercy. 

I have shared my journey about learning the value of praying for mercy.  I hav...

We shun the practice of bowing before sculptured idols and leaving some payment or tribute.  We know there is no heartbeat in a statue, no leadership in marble, no love in a stiff, unmoving form. We like to skip what Jeremiah says:

Our world is starving for in-person holiness.  Everybody’s different truths collide.  The general belief that there is no absolute truth has dangerously decomposed what God set in motion in the Garden.  People pick their own fruit and don’t ask whether it is on God’s m...

God is not a stranger to our mishaps in love.  He sees every rejection, every betrayal, every argument, every separation.  He longs for us to know something better from Him.  He is the God of UN-failing love.  It’s not just one of His traits; it’s the one that binds ev...

How long can you go without speaking to someone you live with or someone you care about?
