Speak, O Lord

I heard this song for the first time today in a Christmas Worship service led by my friend, Brian Arner. The lyrics became a prayer for my own heart. 




Presence Matters Most!
That is... Presence. Unity. Souls. Love.

“Little David”

Today, on the phone with my Mom, we were talking about our weaknesses as humans. I quoted the old classic children’s song: “I am weak but He is strong” and spontaneously Mom quoted lyrics of a song I am personally not as familiar with. The song is titled “Little David.” And since “Little David” is from “O Little Town of Bethlehem” then just maybe it is even more relevant during this season of the year. 

So, here are two “little” song links. Enjoy.

My Holy Day Wreath

This was my Instagram post last evening. 



First Christmas Season in Cape May, NJ. Was feeling the ChristmasšŸŽ„Spirit this afternoon and got inspired so much as to visit an old antique store by the shore where i picked out 9 old ornaments, got a holly tree branch out of the maritime forest outside the cottage, then picked up a strand of twenty white lights and a silver dove tree-topper from Walmart and all of a sudden — an original Kerry Willis holy day wall wreath. My tribute of praise to my King for these holy days. #parumpapumpumšŸ„ #newtradition #islandroots #nineequalsfruitoftheSpiritšŸ‡ #berriespointtothebloodofJesus #hollyleafthornscrownofJesusonthecross✝️ #lightscryoutColossiansOnethirteenšŸ’” #FourWinds #PresenceMattersMost #Maranatha

Preaching at Christmastime

When I surrendered the local pastorate, one pain in my heart was the possibility that I would not be able to preach during Christmastime — my favorite season of the year to proclaim The Good News of my Savior and Lord. 

Let me now testify. I am so very humbled as I realize the Lord has allowed me to preach seven Advent messages this year, yes, more that I would’ve preached even as a local pastor. My heart overflows with gratefulness.

Let us never limit God. Those holy desires in our hearts were placed there by Him. I have zero doubt about to. He is always leading us to His best. He loves us. We are His beloved children. 

The main verse I have preached this Christmas season is recorded in Colossians 1:13-14 (NLT). Saturated in it below and know that without Christmas nothing else would really even matter. Christmas is the birth of Hope — our Forever Hope!



Also, while preaching near Allentown, Pennsylvania, I was surprisingly inspired by seeing a lighthouse there. Maybe it calls in the farm cows? While it seemed out of place, it beautifully touched my island-boy heart. Photo below.

Also, if you are unaware, with the Four Winds RV now winterized until Spring, we finally have a permanent place to call home on the Philadelphia District, yes, a precious God-provided cottage at Cape May, New Jersey. We are settling into our cozy, answer-to-prayer, sacred, place. We are debtors. 


Cape May home...

“I Would Die for You”

Love this group and this song: It seems fitting to be reminded during the Advent Season, that Jesus was born unto us to die for us.
