A Shelter In Your Storm?

Psalms 91:1 "He who lives in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty".
            Many people who have professed a faith in God have left the institutionalized church do to numerous reasons.  Research shows that many of them have a faith and read the Bible.  Unfortunately, those described do not believe the Bible they are reading is infallible inherent word of God.
            During 9/11, there were many people, who went to local churches or some place of worship seeking God for comfort. Seeking Him with an understanding that the process will maybe give them a sense of peace. Unfortunately, many who went or did not find what they were seeking. Again feeling abandoned and probably neglected once again by God.  Maybe instilling and harboring anger against Him.  After all, God is in control right?   Why would a God who is loving allow such a tragic event? 
            This nation has suffered many great tragedies. One such tragedy that has been p…

I went to my car today to go to work only to find that my wife's van had a light on. I drove it last and did not shut the door all the way. I knew that I would have to jump the battery. So I did. Well, needless to say that threw me behind.
As I got underway, I noticed my fuel gage near empty, another "time delay" to get to the gas station.  I was on a quarter of a tank. I knew I could get to work, but had an "understanding" that I needed to surrender to the idea of getting gas now.
I arrived to the gas "station" and did my thing, pumped gas in my car. Anyone who knows me has heard my story of being "available" to the LORD's work wherever I am. Much has been done at the gas station. While I was pumping, a truck pulled up and a young man, probably between the ages of 25-30 stepped out of his truck and began to get gas. As I observed him, I received a burden to talk to him. Not knowing what I would say, I asked him if I …

Kingdom's Door Keep

Psalms 84:10 "For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness."
            For any of you who have been living as a seed planter, planting seeds for the LORD, you understand the frustrations that come with the responsibility.  Sometimes, due to the lack of response of expected growth, you just want to throw in the towel. After all, who wants to put forth all that effort for the lack of seeing a harvest.
            The same is true in my own life. Growing, serving, having joyful heart and intimacy with God, then one stumble (wrong attitude or sinful act) and I am flat on my face, seemingly defeated... I can hear the Devil laughing. Then I ask myself; Who am I serving? Me? or God? Who is in control? Me? or God? Who is my enemy? Man? or Satan?
            How humbling to see the Psalmist in today's verse recognize the blessing of being the door keep in the house of…
