He is Risen!

After being isolated for a year during COVID, we returned to church this morning. It was wonderful. We didn’t return to these church ruins but to our own church. I was struck by the beauty even in the outer structure of this old church. I don’t know where it is, but I thought it was beautiful enough to share with you.

We celebrated the Prince of Peace in our worship service this morning. That’s good news for a sin-sick world. I prayed God would shine His light into the darkness because He promised the darkness would not overcome His light. What an amazing hope!

Our God is faithful to keep His promises, to show up every day in your life, to comfort, counsel and strengthen the weary pilgrim traveling this earth on his way to heaven. Like the mana that fed the Israelites every day in the wilderness, God’s mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness!


I hope you will follow the link above to the website, “To Live is Christ.” The verse for today is Lamentations 3:22-23: “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Read the message. View the movie clip. Listen to the song. Be blessed.


O Lord our God, thank you for your faithfulness. Your mercies and compassions are new every morning. Teach us to respond by sharing your love with others today and forever. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Author of more than two hundred articles, devotions and stories, my book, A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD, is a compilation of devotions from my visit to Israel. The Bible came alive to me, and I discovered I was not only walking in the Holy Lands; I was walking closer with God. I have taught Sunday school more than twenty years, mentored young women and volunteered as a hospital chaplain. Today I lead Women's Bible studies in my home, and I write two blogs--A Closer Walk With God-Devotions from a Journey Through the Holy Lands and Tell Me the Story-Building a Relationship with Jesus Through Bible Lessons and Prayer.
