“Don’t be afraid, those that are with us are more than those who are with them.”      2 Kings 6:16

I’m home!! J 13 days, 29,000 air miles; 18 airports (some more than once), roughly 75 hours in the air, and three great SMs (who are ALL doing a great job and giving Union College an amazing reputation for quality of volunteers!) and I slept in my own bed last night (for as long as jet lag would allow!) J It IS good to be home!

“A still small voice.”         1 Kings 19:12

“He rescued me because He delights in me.”      2 Samuel 22:20

Welcome back from break. Hope it was good to you. Just think, only 35 more school days, a few exams and this school year is history!! I’m in Cape Town and before I head out to see the cape I continue on my second round of a book-a-day from the Bible just challenging myself to look for some kind of a blessing with which I can bless myself and can share with you.

“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”     3 John 4

A reality in my life, as I apply it to my immediate family, AND to my extended “family” at Union College- I have no greater joy than to hear that YOU are walking in the truth of Jesus, and to watch your lives become like His, displayed in so many way by loving and blessing others.

I have no greater joy! Thank you for being that source of joy.

Have a great day bringing joy to your chaplain! J

“I ask that we love one another.”             2 John 5

A short little book with a big message- “Love one another.” And true to His word and my theology of Scripture, if it’s important to God, it’s clear in His word”- the next words say, “And THIS is love…”

“When He appears, we shall be like Him…”  1 John 3:3

I continue to become more and more merciful as I get more and more “chronologically experienced” in life. Kinder, gentler, mercifuler (that’s my new word for the day!), lovinger (ok, there’s another one. I’m on a role!), graciouser, forgivinger. Word creativity is a by-product of “chronological experience!”

“You ask and you do not receive, because you ask with the wrong motives.”       James 4:3

Possibly one of the greatest reasons for what appears in many Christians’ lives as the cause for “unanswered prayers.” It’s a pretty challenging message but one that has, and continues to change my prayer life—for the better!

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus….”                Hebrews 12:2

Hebrews is about Jesus, the High Priest, in the Heavenly sanctuary and what an advantage that offers me, by faith, to see my spiritual potential in Him. Chapter 12 has some criteria to realizing this potential:

1.            “throw off everything that hinders and entangles me in sin”
