Dear Little Boy

Dear little boy,

so scared and thin,

it is time to become

a man

to take the hand of the lonely

to feed the hungry

to lead the church

and cover your family

in eagle’s wings.

Welcome everyone you meet

into a safe and empowering place

where they can explore and grow.

Make bold choices

Be patient and kind.

Not Superman

but a simple man

in love with


and with God.



o Mighty, Majestic Creator God

We’re all so beautiful

Made from clay and bone

Filled with the warmth of blood

pumping wildly ‘neath

the softest of skin

Our mouths breathe forth the breath

first put into by God,

the laws say nothing is lost

The power and majesty of the First Day

still surrounds us

every day.

LORD, open my eyes so I can see it

see you

see everything

angels, demons, hope life love danger

community need

let me fall to my knees and thank you

for I am in of everything

You touch

o Mighty Majestic Creator

of heaven and earth.

To the Utmost

It is the nature of God to reveal Himself

It is the nature of man to try to conceal Him

His fingerprint is everywhere,

in the rocks, trees, and air

Man covers the universe in concrete and steel,

he erects walls

while God builds bridges

Jesus Christ being the ultimate bridge

between holy God and His fallen children.

Man covers over the cross with outstretched hands,

claiming “I am god”

Yet the true God remains always before us,

waiting, inviting us in,

wanting us to experience Him

to the utmost.


The Power of Words

In Acts, we see the Holy Spirit descending upon the disciples in tongues of fire. In Isaiah, we see an angel branding the tongue of the prophet before sending him out.

We who know God, who belong to His family, have His words on our lips. By His power and will, we speak wisdom and prophesy. All insight and encouragement we may give goes forth directly from Him.

As the saying goes, “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” We must guard our hearts and minds, so only good goes out of it.

This of it this way, God spoke and the world was created. John calls Jesus Christ the very Word of God. This same Jesus brings our dead souls back to life, works miracles, and leads the way through life temporal into life eternal.

Today, let us meditate on the power of words and speak what is good.

Bless you, my friends. God is good.

Call Me By My Name

God called Mary the faithful one.

God called Gideon a mighty man of valor

Both were caught by surprise.

We get so obsessed with exterior image.

God, who created us,

calls us by a name that catches us totally by surprised.

Today, listen quietly for the voice of God,

He is whispering insights into your being,

into the totality of human existence.

Will you be present and aware enough to hear

the voice of God?
