God is Not a Man… Numbers 23:19

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said and shall he not do it? Or, hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Numbers 23:19

It’s been a while since I’ve written any inspirational notes or encouragements here.  I think about them a lot– internally, but just haven’t put anything down.

Today, I have something for you to think about from Numbers 23:19.  “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said and shall he not do it? Or, hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”  …Awesome– in so many ways.  But the long and short of it all, I believe, is that God (YHWH) is saying, I’m different.

For a while now, a concept keeps coming back Continue reading “God is Not a Man… Numbers 23:19”

Ernie and a Lot of Good People in Beckley

Photo: Beckley, VA Sign

My trip to North Carolina this time ended up being an extended trip because me and Mabel broke down.  ☹… But, because of family support and good people—everything turned out alright. 😉

I’ve only mentioned Mabel a few times in the past, but now I’ll introduce her properly because I’m looking to do more with her and Continue reading “Ernie and a Lot of Good People in Beckley”

Spirit to Spirit

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” –St. John 4:24

I wanted to write about this verse, but initially, I was stumped.  Jesus had said it all.  Then the question came to me, “What is a spirit?”  …so I looked it up.

One definition of the word spirit is: ‘the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character, the soul.’  That’s beautiful right?

After reading the definition, it reminded me of why we should Continue reading “Spirit to Spirit”

Second Writes

My old computer before it and my site crashed.

So, this is unusual.  I attempted to back up and restore a blog site that I created a while back and failed miserably.  The site was up running smoothly but I had to tweak it just a little bit more.  Just enough to the point where I broke it. Shortly after that my computer crashed.  Now, I was in a jam.

The hosting company I was using didn’t offer much help because they “didn’t support” some of what I wanted to do—but they did have this other thing that they could absolutely Continue reading “Second Writes”

New beginnings….

2nd Corinthians 7:1 (MSG) – With promises like this to pull us on, dear friends, let’s make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without. Lets make our entire lives fit and holy temples for the worship of God.

So how do we get a new beginning? We’ve made mistakes. Ok…let’s be honest, we flat out rolled around in sin…enjoyed it even. It doesn’t really matter what brand of sin you were in; from lying to murder…it’s all sin. The Bible says sin has pleasure for a season. But did you REALLY enjoy it? Do you remember the last time you felt close to God? Do you remember when the Bible spoke to you with clarity? Have you ever prayed, “I miss you God”? That’s actually the reason I started this blog. I am in this place right now. I missed the voice of God. I missed feeling “whole”. This blog isn’t for everyone. Its for those of us who, like me, lost their way for a little while.

The good news is, you and I are actually ripe for Continue reading “New beginnings….”
