Blessings to all who visit here!

I’ve decided to add something new to my home page. I usually place a devotional on Facebook every morning, and thought it might be good to share those daily messages with my friends that visit my website. At some point in the future, I will adding the link to Facebook and Twitter, but this is a work in progress. I hope this message touches your heart. Feel free to share it with those you know who might also benefit:

CHAMPION OF LOVE

Muhammad Ali, the great American boxer, had a saying, “I am the greatest!” and in his arena of sports that was true.  But when one considers the Universe, we know that we are all the same in God’s eyes, and not one of us is better than another.  ”…but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.”  (Philippians 2:3. KJV).  Imagine how small and insignificant we must appear when God looks down from heaven, yet He loves us!

Job, in defending his position to his accusing ‘friends’, said of God:  ”We cannot imagine the power of the Almighty, and yet he is so just and merciful that he does not destroy us.”  (Job 37:23  TLB).  Job knew that, regardless of his suffering here on earth, the Almighty was in his corner!

Muhammad Ali might call himself the greatest, but there is only One that truly wears the title of the Greatest, and that is our Savior, Jesus!  He says of Himself, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”  (Revelation 1:8  KJV).  Jesus is truly our Champion!  He fought the enemy and won!  And as a result, we have the gift of eternal life!

Sometimes a song is so good, it doesn’t need a long message to explain it. This song is one of those whose message is so powerful, yet straightforward that it’s obvious and understandable!  This was the <3 song I heard in my mind when I woke this morning!  Although I’ve shared it before, I feel it is the message The Lord wants me to share today:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, may I have your attention? I want to

introduce to you

In this corner of the good and the right, stands a champion

robed in white

His height exceeds the heavens, His weight outweighs the world

His reach reaches everywhere, His age is evermore 

CHORUS:

He is higher than the highest , greater

than the great

No one will ever take His crown away

He’s more mighty than the mightiest, He reigns from above

He’s the all-time undisputed, undefeated champion, of love

He left His hometown to enter this arena, to raise His hands in

victory for me

An angry crowd crucified this king who wore their crown, as they

gladly watched the champion going down

Oh but I will never count Him out, for I’m a witness of

The day He rose to reclaim the title “Champion of Love” 

He is higher than the highest , greater

than the great

No one will ever take His crown away

He’s more mighty than the mightiest, He reigns from above 

He is higher than the highest , greater

than the great

No one will ever take His crown away

He’s more mighty than the mightiest, He reigns from above 

He’s the all-time undisputed, undefeated champion

the all-time undisputed, undefeated champion

the all-time undisputed, undefeated champion,

Of Love

Of Love”

“Now I know that the Lord is greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.”  (Exodus 18:11  KJV).  Have a blessed day!

ABOUT MY WRITING: 

 My first two books are available on amazon.com in either paperback, hardback, or ebook formats. they are the first two books in my group called “Journeys of Faith”. Take a look on my books page for “Through the Waters” and “Across the Wilderness”. “Out of the Valley” is coming along nicely. I am hoping to get it to the publisher within the next month or 6 weeks. 

 Meanwhile, look for several ebooks,not part of the “Journeys of Faith”. One is a compilation of my daughter’s poems, two are related to the grieving process: 1) a personal tribute to my daughter called, “Only in My Dreams”, and 2) an overview of the various ways we grieve other losses in our lives, named “White Crosses Line the Highways of Our Lives”. As they are released through Kindle Direct Publishing, links will be placed on this website.

With the holiday season behind us, don’t let’s forget the less fortunate among us. 

 Take time to search for somebody in need. Donate time feeding the homeless. Find new, innovative ways to reach out in your community. Most of all, don’t forget the commission in James 1:27 “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

Feel free to use the emails on this website to contact
me regarding scheduling a book-signing and/or talk to a reading
group, church group or just a gathering of friends. I am
always open to new experiences and meeting new people.
