The Grays’ Gala

It was the night of his parents' annual charitable gala. He was there with Briony. His father remembered her and greeted her warmly. When he introduced her to his mother, the older woman was very reserved in her manner. He could tell that she didn't approve of Briony which hardly surprised him. She had never …

Two Things About God

But the Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord still rules from heaven.  He watches everything closely, examining everyone on earth (Psalm 11:4) Photo by Nashua Volquez-Young from Pexels There are two things about God which comfort me.  The first is that He is in control.  The second is, nothing happens without His knowledge.  

One Day at a Time

“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth” – Proverbs 27:1 Many of us make plans in advance but the Bible cautions us not to do that because we don’t know what each day will bring. We have no control over the future. We ought to thank …

Dinner with the Group

Jason glanced at his watch. In a few minutes, he, Michelle and a few other colleagues would be heading out of the office to have dinner at Hong Kong Kitchen. He pulled on his jacket and then went over to his desk to power off his computer before locking his drawers. Michelle stood at the …

Controlled

Copyright Ronda Del Boccio “This was a mistake.  I thought I could do it.  Please, let’s go back down.” She was petrified. “You must be brave and face your fear of flying.  You can’t let it continue to control you.” “Please, I want to go down.” His expression changed.  “If that’s what you really want.” …

Your Anchor

You are my help and my deliverer - Psalm 40:17 Sometimes we are so overcome by problems and troubles that we feel like we are sinking and there's nothing we can hold onto to keep afloat or a least keep our heads above water.  It's so easy to let go.  Yet, we are encouraged not …

Making Plans

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into this city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit,” whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? It is just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead you …

The Waters of Life

She thought of the sea as one's life.  Never static. Always moving. Sometimes it was calm and others time it was choppy.  Before she found Christ, she wanted to remain in the shallow waters where it was safe.   She didn't want to be swept away by the currents of change or the rough waters of …

Forsaken and Abandoned

A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation - Psalm 68:5 It's heartbreaking to see how widows are treated in South Asia.  They don't receive the care, love or support that widows in North America do.  Instead they are blamed for their husbands' deaths and abandoned by their families. A …
