Blameless with great joy


Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time, now and forever. Amen.  Jude

Blameless with great joy. Can you imagine yourself standing in His presence, blameless with great joy? Go ahead, let your imagination run away with you. No man can take this promise from you. 

In His Image

quail in Mom's backyard

"Let us be very sincere in our dealings with each other,

and have the courage to accept

each other as we are.

Do not be surprised or become

preoccupied at each other's

failures - rather, see and find in

each other the good,

for each one of us is created

in the image of God."

Mother Teresa

His instruments


Be the living expression of God's kindness; 

kindness in your eyes,

kindness in your face,

kindness in your smile,

kindness in your warm greetings.

We are all but His instruments

who do our little bit and pass by.

I believe that the way in which 

an act of kindness is done is 

as important as the action itself.

Mother Theresa

The Fruit of the Sprit is



We do it for Jesus


Wyoming in April

"What made me start my work,

what inspired me and kept me going during so many years?

Jesus. We do it for Jesus.

I take Jesus at His word and He never lets me down.

He said: 'Ask and you will receive.' So I ask.

If it is for His glory He will grant it,

if not, let us forget about it.

God knows what is good for us."  Mother Theresa

We love because He first loved us. 1 John


God of Peace


Now may the God of peace

[Who is the Author and the Giver of peace],

Who brought again from among the dead

our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,

by the blood [that sealed, ratified]

the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),

    Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you

what you ought to be and equip you with everything good

that you may carry out His will;

[while He Himself] works in you

and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight,

through Jesus Christ (the Messiah);

to Whom be the glory forever and ever

(to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it). Hebrews 13 Amplified




"And from that city many of the

Samaritans believed in Him because

of the word of the woman who testified,

"He told me all the things that I have done."

John 4

Our testimony does have the power

to bring people to Jesus. Have you given yours lately??

I love you, Lord


I love You, LORD, my strength,

The LORD is my rock,

my fortress, and my deliverer,

my God, my mountain

where I seek refuge,

my shield and the horn of my salvation,

my stronghold.  Psalm 18

wow, He is all we could possibly need

for any and all circumstances.

Let Him be who He is

in your life.

Then, He is glorified, lifted up

for all to see and come to know Him.

One Voice

One Voice
Multnomah Falls Oregon


For whatever was thus written in former days

was written for our instruction,

that by [our steadfast and patient]

endurance and the encouragement [drawn]

from the Scriptures we might hold fast

to and cherish hope.

    5Now may the God Who gives

the power of patient endurance (steadfastness)

and Who supplies encouragement,

grant you to live in such mutual harmony

and such full sympathy with one another,

in accord with Christ Jesus,

    6That together you may [unanimously]

with united hearts and one voice,

praise and glorify the God and Father

of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).

Romans 15 Amplified



True Worshippers


A time will come, however,

indeed it is already here,

when the true (genuine) worshipers

will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality);

for the Father is seeking just such people

as these as His worshipers.

    God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being)

and those who worship Him must

worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).

John 4 Amplified


The prophetic Word


And so we have the prophetic word strongly confirmed.

You will do well to pay attention to it,

as to a lamp shining in a dismal place,

 until the day dawns and the morning star 

arises in your hearts. 

First of all, you should know this:

no prophecy of Scripture comes from one's own

interpretation,  because no prophecy ever

came by the will of man;

instead, moved by the Holy Spirit,

men spoke from God.

2 Peter 1 HCSB
