The Sea of Voices of Praise

“And I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was then thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice ‘worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!’”  Revelation 5:11-12   I closed my eyes and worshipped, praising and honoring and glorifying.  I felt a hunger for His presence I hadn’t felt in a long time.  I didn’t want to ask for anything, I didn’t want to cry out for deliverance...

From Sunrise to Sunset

  “From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.” Psalm 113:3     I don’t witness too many sunrises.  That doesn’t mean that I don’t like to see the sun rise.  It’s an incredible way to start the day.  The truth is – I’m not a morning person.  I don’t sleep well at night.  It’s common for me to see the digits on the nightstand clock change to 2 and sometimes even 3 am.  If I do happen to drift off at a reasonable hour, I will unfailing awaken around midnight and lay in bed, staring at the ceiling until...

Running Water

Running Water

Gurgles and groans shouted from the spout.  I had pumped soap into my hand, turned the handle and expected water.  Instead, it was a series of burps and protests.  I also noticed that the toilet tank wasn’t filling with water.   “Great,” I thought.  “The water isn’t working.” I made my way down to the kitchen, checked the kettle for water and tested it to be sure it wasn’t still hot from breakfast.  Deeming it safe, I used some of it to rinse the soap from my hands.  Only a little, mind you.  I had a few bottles of spring water in the cellar, but other than that,...

Through the Desert to the Garden

Through the Desert to the Garden

The sun emblazoned the crystals of sand.  Any breath of breeze picked up the sand and carried it along, throwing it into my face before swirling it across the expanse.  The heat pressed down on me, and my thirst was overwhelming.  I knew I wasn’t alone.  Turning my head to the right, I sensed a friend.  To the left – apprehension, fear.  I couldn’t, however, see anyone.  Pulling my legs up to my chest and resting my head against my knees, I whispered, “Lord, what’s going on?  Where am I and why am I here?”   I gasped awake.  Sweat poured from my body.  I reached for...

May I Introduce Him?

“I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.  Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”  And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.”  Isaiah 6:1-4     I can only imagine the terror, awe, shock Isaiah experienced as he stood before the throne of...
