God Shines On…

Little White Country Church

“Who hath despised the day of small things?” Little community churches like this are the heartbeat of God. Although this little white country church only has services once per week the foundation upon which a small church like this is built is everlasting. Sun beams shine down as a blessing upon this little bethel, on a snowy winter afternoon.

Samaritan Water

Jesus was becoming popular in Judea.

He knew the Pharisees were watching Him so He left Judea.  He comes upon a well in Related imageSychar: Jacob’s well.  A woman comes and Jesus speaks to her.  “Give me a drink.” Samaritans and Jews do not interact if avoidable.  Also, man to strange woman is touchy.  But Jesus loved this woman and knew He had the best gift to offer anyone.  He knew she would be receptive!

“How is it you, a Jew, talk to a Samaritan?” Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. “If you knew the gift of God and who I am, you would ask for living water.” Read more of this post

The first orthodox Rabbi to give benediction at a US presidential inauguration cited a psalm highlighting Jerusalem at Friday’s ceremony.

He used Psalm 137 and Psalm 15 in his prayer.  More power to him.  Thankful to see the ministers at the Inauguration today.

The Magnificat

Mary’s time has come! She will give birth to the Blessed One.  We celebrate Him now.

“Let it be according to your Word!” are her words in response.

The Magnificat was given us for many reasons but one of those is so we reflect on what it means to have the Savior she nurtured.  How is He moving in you?  Is He moving as He did in Mary’s soul? What is He saying to you?  Receive Him and be filled with His love and grace this moment. He is waiting to give you these things.
