That Christ Be Wholly Formed In You

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

    Pray] that the Lord your God may show us the way in which we should walk and the thing that we should do.  Jer 42: 3

    We have some friends whose names we have brought up in church on a regular basis for prayer as the wife has been battling breast cancer for  over 2 years with good reports and surges in faith alternating with bad reports and assaults on that faith. Currently, after a double mastectomy and a not great pathology report indicating a spread of that cancer, faith is under tremendous attack. The husband and I had a brief visit where he shared the above update and said, " I just went to the Lord and said, ' Father, you've got to give me something- a word of encouragement or a scripture; just something to hold onto!'  The Lord said, ' I am good, and Christ must be fully formed in you' "

We Want A King

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

Moses, as a part of his deliverance from infanticide, was raised in the household of Pharoh. He witnessed the exercise of divine right power and authority and probably as a result of his intelligence and inherent leadership qualities, Pharoh let him have a measure of dominion, despite his Hebrew origins. Moses wielded the power of an earthly king. {jcomments on

The Refuge Of Trust, The Snare Of Fear

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

     A very wise and witty business consultant would write a newsletter to his clients and dispense his pearls gleaned from years of private consulting. One essay dealt with the futility of always looking for the big move; some single thing we could do in our practices and double our gross receipts. This was, in his view, an unrealistic expectation derived from quantum leaps we enjoyed in the early days of our business when, proceeding from zero, we enjoyed large percentage increases if we just kept going to work. He chronicled the phenomena like this: " You started your practice. Then you installed a phone and your gross doubled. Several months later, you unlocked your front door and your practice doubled again...". Of course his point is that those big gains in the beginning, the simple achievement of going from 1 to 2 represented a dramatic 100% growth rate and depended on our just continuing to breathe. As the enterprise matured, gains were smaller and harder won. I've come to understand this as a phenomena in our spiritual lives.

Psalm 34:17-22

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
    he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19 The righteous person may have many troubles,
    but the Lord delivers him from them all;
20 he protects all his bones,
    not one of them will be broken.

21 Evil will slay the wicked;
    the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 The Lord will rescue his servants;
    no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned
