Jesus wept

TOGETHER in Sorrow Everyone knows this passage, but do we understand the significance of this moment in Jesus’ life? Jesus was weeping over the circumstances of Lazarus’ death. In this particular verse, weeping is derived from the Greek word “dakruo” meaning to weep silently, to shed tears. “Jesus’ tears were generated both by His love…

Bear Witness

In regard to my earlier post about this Shall We Dance movie quote… “We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good…

This love

Tonight is one of those nights I needed to speak truth over myself. I have not “wrestled well” – as Lysa Teurkerst writes about in Its Not Supposed to be This Way. Not only that, but I have heard from friends that are hurting and struggling, and I am one to take on other’s pain….
