Where is God?

It is not unusual for me to speak with people who ask if God exists, then where is He? Or if He is here why can’t we see Him? I always appreciate candid faith based discussions, because this is a good indicator that whoever is asking the questions is also seeking answers. God’s Word is […]

Three Deadly “D”s

Friends there are three deadly “D”s that threaten to ruin our celebration of Christmas. In fact these three are so common that they threaten to ruin any day anytime. They are not a respecter of seasons. They just jump right into our hearts and create chaos. They are: Disappointment Discouragement Doubt And they don’t have […]

Our True Love Gave to Us…

“On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…” You remember the song, don’t you? The one about the presents that were given by someone’s “true love?” As we prepare for Christmas tomorrow,  I want to encourage you all to make space for our true love, Jesus Christ. Somehow in the midst […]

Christmas Choices

This morning, I want to share with you an entry from my daily devotional, Drawing Near to God. The entry is called Choosing Whom We Will Serve and while we must make this choice daily, we all need a little encouragement this time of year when we can get caught up in the hustle and […]

And the Word Became Flesh

Happy Monday, Making Space for God friends! This morning I have been meditating on the following Scripture: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing […]

Wound Up Over Nothing

So here we are officially in the advent season. And we have two choices. We can enter in to the mad rush of shopping, baking, writing Christmas cards, parties…. or we can first enter into the secret place with the Lord each day and then start our busy days.  I am not Scrooge telling you not […]

The Mind of Christ

Happy Monday, making space for God friends! Last night, a Scripture kept running through my mind, so I thought we would unpack the meaning of it together. It has been following me throughout the day in my thought life and I keep wondering as Paul wrote these words to the people in Philippi: what was […]

Jesus Formed in the Womb

Have you ever thought about Jesus being formed in Mary’s womb? The last few days I have been thinking about this. Scripture tells us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s image– that we were formed in our mother’s womb. And Jesus was too… Though He was the Son of God… He was […]

A Greater Yes

Here we are in the final days of Advent, waiting and preparing for the birth of Jesus. However, I want to talk to you today about a different kind of waiting… waiting for the desires of your heart to be fulfilled. As you reflect on the past year, you may feel that you have just […]

God’s Divine Interruptions

Good morning, Making Space for God friends. One week until Christmas- the time we celebrate the birth of Christ. It seems I have to fight to remember the reason for the season as I make my way through lists of shopping, baking, and the like. I think Santa Claus is a cute enough fellow, but […]
