Reaching for the Morning Star

“And I will give him the morning star.” Revelation 2:28

This blog is dedicated to the task of encouraging all those who follow that Star.

Giving Away What We Cannot Keep

A family of four vacationing in Italy were leaving Rome late one evening, and on a deserted road, a car came up behind them and yelled for them to pull over to the side of the road. The father and mother, fearful that their two small children would be kidnapped, decided to race ahead. Men…

Lost Dreams

There are moments in every life when we suffer disappointment. It may be a small frustration, such as missing an opportunity to see family or friends, or it may be deeper, such as realizing that a goal you worked toward may never be obtained – a lost dream. A teenager dreaming of a successful career…

Red Sea Moment

Have you heard the phrase “Red Sea Moment?” The term is based on the story of the Israelites coming upon the Red Sea and finding their enemy in hot pursuit behind them. As they had mountains on either side, the sea in front of them and their pursuers behind them, it looked hopeless. But God…

Holding On

Do you remember playing tug-of-war as a child? Often during family picnics, someone would suggest a game and all gullible family members were enlisted. All that was needed was a long rope, sometimes knots were added to the rope to give each player a handhold, other times we would just hold on the best we…

The Next Step

Have you ever come to a crossroad and wondered where you should take your next step? Sometimes we know that a decision about our future is approaching and sometimes because of a sudden change of circumstances, we come to that crossroad without much warning.

Hidden Blessings

Does it seem as if we hear the word “chaos” more now than ever when people talk about this world? There’s chaos in the streets, chaos in the government, and chaos in the news. When things are in chaos, they are in such disarray that we can become confused. Confusion can be frightening when you…

There’s So Much More

There’s so much more. Heaven – imagine the best and there’s so much more. Relationships – imagine the love you dreamed about as a teenager and yearned for as an adult. Imagine unconditional love. There’s so much more. Imagine reaching the top rung of the corporate ladder, owning the most decked-out house, having the most…

Rough Around The Edges

Have you noticed that some groups of people are not interacting well with each other. Our differences are not only becoming more pronounced, there seems to be an increase in the number of  people who aren’t tolerating those differences with equanimity. You can almost choose any subject and quickly find or even just think of…


Every now and then I’m pulled by a title of one of the “America’s Got Talent” or Britain’s Got Talent” videos. Although I’m not a fan of the show, I love music and especially love when it is done so well. One evening, I watched more than I have in many months. In one, a…
