Spiritual Tests

Taking a spiritual test today? Your Great Teacher is in the classroom with you and watching over you in a silent presence. Just as He was with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in their fiery furnace when Nebuchadnezzar declared “Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God” Daniel 3:22


1 Peter 1:6-8 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory

Saint Patrick – Truth or Legend? 


Being an Ulster Scot, sometimes known as Scotch-Irish, who was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, and grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland, I’ve always been interested in unveiling the truth of the life of the man known as Saint Patrick. What we know is based on three authentic writings he left behind.

  1. His confession
  2. His letter to his friend Coroticus
  3.  A hymn known as his breastplate.

I want to give you a revealing fact each day you may not know leading up to March 17th. which is the anniversary of his death.

Did you know that Saint Patrick was not even an Irishman?

His parents were Britons and Patrick was born near Dumbarton on the river Clyde in Scotland.

How Awesome!

On our two hour ride down to Philadelphia today for a checkup with my cardiac surgeon we drove through some beautiful winter scenery. The dark dreary winter suddenly became a sunny winter wonderland with boughs hanging low laden with fresh fallen snow against a backdrop of clear blue skies. How awesome!

It was a window to my soul from my heavenly Papa where He had taken my dark dreary winter of years of heart problems, surgeries and stroke to a sunny day when the boughs of my life would be laden with blessings against the backdrop of a total clean bill of health from the surgeon today.

I can look back on those days praising God for, as Andre Crouch penned “If I never had my problems I would never know what faith in God could do.” How awesome!

Only the Potter Knows the Purpose of His Creation


Dear Child,

Creation has no choice but to fulfill its purpose and be what it was created for. 

Man was given a choice, a free will and a creative mind to fulfill My purpose or create his own.

All I ask of you is that you be what you were created to be.

You can try to do that which you weren’t created to do.

But you can never be what you weren’t created to be, no matter how you struggle!

                                            Thus saith Papa

Isa 64:8  But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Eph 5:17  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

                   Everything has a purpose

In order to know the purpose of a thing you do not ask the thing

You ask the creator of the thing

Only the creator knows the purpose of the thing he created

When the purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable!

      Challenge: If you do not know the purpose of your being, ask the Potter?

                                  Choose to fulfill His purpose by being who He created you to be.
