Is Jesus God?


Recently someone asked me if Jesus was God.

“Yes. He’s the third part of the trinity. He’s God with skin on. God with a face.”
“I don’t understand that trinity stuff,” she said.

Looking down into my lap and prayed the Lord to show me how to answer her. My hands rested there with the verigated yarn I was knitting on three needles.

Suddenly, I had the answer. “The trinity is like this piece of knitting. It’s all one piece, but it looks different depending on which side you look at.

A Thanksgiving Conversation

thanksgiving dinner

This past Thanksgiving I had a quiet moment, one-on-one, with my fifth-grade grandson before everyone descended for dinner. He transferred this year from a private Christian school to public.

“How do you like your new school?” I asked as I stirred the gravy.

“I like some classes, but some of my teachers take the Lord’s name in vain every day.”

“Really. That’s strange.”

“Some of the kids there have some really wacky ideas. At lunch the other day one girl told me in another life I used to be a tree. I told her I wasn’t.”

“Well, honey, I don’t think it’s any mistake God saw to it that you went to public school this year. I think you’re there to plant some seeds for Jesus.”

“You think so, Grandma?”

“I know so!”

Note from a Fan


As a witer, I don’t get feedback like a performer does. It’s always a joy to hear from one of my readers. A couple of weeks ago I received this from a lady who read the first of the series God’s Little Miracle Book.

“I’ve had your “God’s Little Miracle Book” a while. It’s amazing! I had a hard time putting it down to make dinner. But, reading the rest brought me to tears, laughter, ‘praise God,’ prayer and feeling Jesus was with me. I’m going to order several more of your books. This first book has helped me hang on and trust Jesus, knowing I have Alzheimer’s. God bless you!”

It’s such a blessing to know that even one person received encouragement from those hours at the keyboard. To God be the glory!

open Bible

We are in the season of Thanksgiving—we are reminded to be grateful for the good and the bad. Sometimes it’s hard for us to see God’s good in a situation but that’s because we’re in the midst of it. We can’t see the situation from His perspective. We don’t know the good He is working out through these situations.

It’s times like these that people think God has abandoned us, that He doesn’t care, that He’s forgotten our name. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

We need to remember the times we are in. 2 Timothy 3 tells us, “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and avoid such men as these.”

In these treacherous days we need to hold fast to the truth of the Word of God. To “continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of” according to 2 Timothy 3:15, because “All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness,” according to 2 Timothy 3:16.

Let us take this moment to stop and be grateful to God for His gifts to us. All of them.

Jesus' Return


Galatians 1:4 “Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us out of this present evil age according to the will of our God and Father.”

As the day of Jesus’ appearing in the sky draws nearer, we see a more definable difference in those who truly have Jesus as their Lord, and those who don’t.

For those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus, there is special protection in this scripture even in calamity and a promise of deliverance in the future to meet with Jesus in the air and to ever be with Him in eternity (I Thessalonians 4:17).

This is God’s will for each of us, to be with Him and enjoy Him forever.

Will you receive His sacrifice for yourself?

I rejoice there is a heaven to have
because You offered Yourself in our place.

(This devotional has been taken from my co-authored book, Daily Walk with Jesus, a 366 daily devotional by Sally Jadlow and Ardythe Kolb, available here from Amazon.com.)

Your Purpose

This past weekend I attended the Heart of America Christian Writers Network Conference here in Kansas City. One of the activities we enjoyed was a drama by Karen Morerod. She portrayed Queen Esther from the Bible from the book of the same name.

Queen Esther saved her Jewish people from annihilation. Her uncle told her God placed her in the palace “for such a time as this.”

I wonder if each of us are aware we too, are placed by God where we are in this time and place in history for such a time as this. Each of us has a part to play, every day, in His grand plan.

How has He made you aware of your role?

The Dead Sea Scrolls

This cave is the first place the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

This cave is the first place the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

Often I hear people doubt the authenticity of the Bible. They don’t understand the role of the Scribe in Biblical times. These men spent long hours every day copying every jot and tittle of every word of scripture on to new scrolls.

When they finished, they proof-read each line of each column. If there was one mistake in their new copy, they took a knife and sliced the new copy to pieces because it was flawed.

To prove the high quality of their work, God allowed three Bedouin shepherds to discover seven scrolls squirreled away sixty-seven years ago this month. Eventually over the next ten years, 972 texts were discovered in twelve caves about a mile northwest of the Dead Sea. Thus, they became known as the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The writings date from 408 B.C. to 318 A.D. Among them are pieces of Isaiah which are far older manuscripts than we had before. When scholars examined these passages of Isaiah, they discovered they were identical to the oldest manuscripts we had at the time.

I find great comfort in knowing that what God moved people to write so long ago has not changed. II Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is inspired by God is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.”

What He said then, is still true for today. To paraphrase what Dr. Seuss said about an elephant, I hear God saying, “I meant what I said and said what I meant. I am faithful one hundred percent.”

God's Deliverance

Army.red sea

Our God is a just God. He hears the cries of the afflicted and delivers those who cry out to Him. Psalm 46:1 says “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

After the Israelites left Egypt after 400 years of captivity, they found they had the Red Sea before them and Pharaoh’s army in chariots behind them. They were trapped. There was nowhere to go. They couldn’t outrun the army, even if there was someplace to run.

The people cried out to Moses in fear. Moses said, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.”

The Lord told the people to go forward into the Red Sea. Moses lifted up his staff. The sea parted. The Israelites crossed over. Pharaoh’s army went in after them.

The account in Exodus 14:24, 25 says the Lord brought the army of the Egyptians into confusion and He caused their chariot wheels to swerve.

That word swerve in the original Hebrew is cuwr. It means “to depart; to be removed.” In other words, God made the chariot wheels to fall off!

Today we are faced with an unjust law imposed on us that would cause a person who has no health insurance to pay $400 a month for the cheapest plan that carries a $5,000 deductable if they needed to visit an emergency room. If a person making minimum wage can’t come up with $400 a month, how are they going to be able to pay the $5,000 due?

It’s an unjust law. At this point, the sign-up website isn’t functioning and people who don’t sign up will be fined.

Perhaps God has heard the cries that call to Him about the slavery of being forced to do something that puts us in bondage to an unjust government. Maybe the failed website is God’s hand saying, “Your wheels are falling off. Enough already!”

children friendship

This past week I have had two occasions to be with long-ago friends. About a fourth of our high school graduating class met in the Ozarks for a long weekend. We revisited memories from days past, colored and warped by over 53 years of life since our graduation.

The second group was a gathering of Christian sisters who went to the same church over 40 years ago. We came together from all over the map to celebrate one member’s 90th birthday.

In both gatherings the Lord Jesus reminded me how sweet our final reunion will be with Him when He comes to gather us to Himself. No more tears, no more sorrow, no more pain. Only sweet communion with Him and the ones who have gone on before us who trusted in Jesus, their only path to heaven.

What a sweet day that will be!

Stages of Dying

What if a doctor handed you a diagnosis today that you would die in a month? Would you get busy checking off items on your bucket list? Would you go into panic mode? Or would you try to tie up all the loose ends of your life?

I spent a weekend recently watching CDs on inner healing by Frances and Judith McNutt. She shared the stages people go through when faced with that scenario.

Stages of Dying:
1. Denial
“This isn’t happening to me.”
2. Anger
“Where is God? Why me?”
3. Bargaining
“I’ll lead a better life Lord, if you’ll only let me live.”
4. Depression
Judith encouraged us to reach out in ministry to a dying person when they’re in this stage because they are in danger of falling into despair.
5. Acceptance

A person in this stage has come to terms with the next stage of their eternal existence.

As I thought on these points these thoughts came to me. We all are going to die. We all will live forever—somewhere. Do you know where you will spend eternity? If not, ask Jesus to come into your heart and life and forgive your sins. Put your trust in Him. Your eternal life can start today. You’ll never walk alone on this earth again. What are you waiting for?

When Praying for Someone

Have you ever felt the Lord has asked you to do something you don’t feel you’re capable of? Scary, isn’t it?

One of the first times I went to pray for someone I was scared to death. What would I say? What would I pray? What if the person wasn’t healed? What if I blew it? These questions ran though my head as I drove to the place to pray for the person.

The Lord spoke to my heart. It went something like this. “It’s none of your business whether the patient lives or dies. Your job is to follow My bidding. You’re not the doctor. I am. You’re merely the instrument in My hand. Your job is to be clean and ready. You don’t have to take the blame if the patient dies. You also won’t take the credit if the patient lives, for all the glory goes to Me, Almighty God.”

I felt as if a thousand pound weight lifted off my shoulders. “It’s a deal, Lord.”

About a year later, I heard from the mother of the patient. “We had a doctor visit today. The doctor told us to throw the pills away. My child doesn’t need any further treatments. He is symptom free. Oh, and the doctor told us this disease is fatal. He can’t understand why my child is healed.

That was over 40 years ago. The child is now grown with no further illness. What the Lord taught me that day is a lesson I’ll never forget. To God be the glory now and forevermore!

In I Kings, chapter 18, King Ahab, a worshiper of God had married a woman who worshiped in a fertility cult who sacrificed their babies to Baal. Elijah, a prophet in Israel, told king Ahab to gather the 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of the Asherah in order to have a “come to meeting” so to speak.

The Israelites, led by their king, worshiped Almighty God. But they also mixed in a little hanky-panky with the temple prostitutes of the king’s wife, Jezebel.

After all the Baal priests and the people of Israel were gathered, Elijah came before them and asked, “How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” In other words, he said they were limping along because they were trusting in something other than their Almighty God to deliver their needs like rain and fertility. God was not at all pleased that they were sacrificing His gift to them of their children to Baal.

Elijah proposed a test saying if Baal was god, let him light an ox the Baal priests laid on their altar. If Almighty God was God, let fire come and consume Elijah’s sacrifice on his altar.

Elijah let the Baal priests go first. They called on their god all day until time for the evening sacrifice. Nothing happened, even though they cut themselves and called out with loud voices.

Then it was Elijah’s turn. They laid an ox on Elijah’s altar. He had them pour twelve pitchers of water on it. When Elijah prayed a simple prayer the fire of the Lord fell, consumed the burnt offering, the wood, the stones of the altar, the dust, and the altar.

When the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, “The Lord, He is God; the Lord, He is God.”

A few chapters later, we find out what happens to Jezebel. Dogs ate everything but her hands and feet. A sad end indeed.

What things are we trusting in today in addition to Almighty God for our needs? Have we thrown in a little Buddhism? A tad of new age thinking or just a dash of witchcraft like horoscopes, Tarot cards, or Ouija boards?

Today's Need

A person posed a question to me recently. This person asked, “What if the church prayed with the same fervor as those who waited for what Jesus called ‘The promise of the Father.’” The apostles and 120 believers gathered in a common place and prayed for this unknown gift for 40 days after Jesus resurrection.

Acts 2 tells us that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit like a mighty rushing wind. Those same disciples who ran like scared rabbits the night Jesus was arrested, became bold as lions after they had received the outpoured Holy Spirit. Peter preached one sermon and 3,000 were added to the believers in one day.
When we look at the things going on around us today in our world, I think we need that same Holy Spirit to pour forth on us, like on the day of Pentecost. What do you think?

What is Biblical Faith?

What is it to have faith, exactly? The Bible tells us that faith is “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Heb. 11:1).

It’s believing that God is going to do what He says He will do, even before you have seen the evidence of it.

Faith is not some magic saying of words or believing for what you want to happen. It is listening for the Lord’s voice, praying what He says to pray, and patiently waiting to see the result, knowing that you have no power to bring that thing to pass.

So many people see God as a Heavenly Genie who is at our command. Wrong! We are His to command. The key to answered prayer is to find out His will, and then jump on board with Him.
The Lord Jesus talks to me a lot in word-pictures. As I’m writing this, the Holy Spirit showed me a man trying to pull a mile-long train in his own strength. What God wants the man to do is put down the rope, climb aboard, and enjoy the ride, while God provides the forward movement.

Lord Jesus, forgive us when we have tried to pull the train. May we instead let You take us where You want to go.

P.S. After I wrote this post I went to Google Images, typed in “man pulling train” and this was the first picture that popped up!

Please join my blog so we can travel the tracks together.

Difficult Decisions

I recently spoke with a young woman whose husband had a serious illness. He sought out a well-known specialist who told him he could be a candidate to participate in a blind study of a new medication that could possibly hold a cure. There would be no charge for the participation in the study which normally would be extremely expensive. All experiments conducted on animals so far had proved successful.

The husband wanted to do the trial, but his wife wanted no part of it. As I spoke to her, the Lord whispered, “Have no mind in the matter.” (I understood that to mean that we were not to tell God what to do; we were to present the problem to Him so that He could do what He wanted according to His way and timing.)

I asked her, “Have you prayed about what decision to make?”

“No. I flat-out don’t want him to take the chance. What if it doesn’t work? What if he’s one that only gets the placebo drugs in the control group?”

The Holy Spirit urged me again. “Would you be willing to ask God for His wisdom as to what you should do? God tells us in James that if we lack wisdom, we should ask Him and He will give it liberally. He does caution us in this same passage however, that once He gives His wisdom, we must not waver in doubt or we will be as unsettled as a wave tossed on the sea.”

Reluctantly, she agreed.

As we prayed, the Lord nudged me again to pray that we would have no mind in the matter. That we would open ourselves to the Lord’s will and wisdom that is beyond our own; to let Him take charge of the situation. To take our hands off, give Him our fears, and let him direct our thoughts so that this husband and wife could come into agreement with God’s will, whatever that might be.

On the way home, I continued to pray about the situation, wondering how it would all turn out.
Speaking with her the next week, I asked how our project was coming.

“Oh, we decided even if he wasn’t helped, he might be helping someone else.” She looked at her watch. “In fact he’s in for his first injection right about now.”

God’s ways never cease to amaze me.

God's Undercover Work

I never cease to be amazed at our loving heavenly Father. On August 3, 2013 I posted an update to my 9/11 story in God’s Little Miracle Book II.

On August 21, I received an e-mail from a lady I didn’t know. She told me she was a daughter of my childhood friend Grant, the man who was the pilot on the United flight on 9/11. I wrote about him in God’s Little Miracle Book II.

She said, “Tomorrow it will have been six weeks,” (since her father died.) “I was having a difficult night, and praying for some type of connection. I Google imaged my father and your book came up. I instantly downloaded the book to my Kindle.

“I am Grant Besley’s daughter. Although I have heard the 9/11 story from him, it was wonderful to read in detail and imagine him telling me again . . . he was a great storyteller.

“Tonight, your book became MY God’s little miracle in a deeply felt prayer that was nearly instantly answered after writing a letter to my Dad.

“Oddly, the intent of my late night was actually to download the Kindle version of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, but per my usual mode, I was distracted (Guided by the hand of God) to writing the letter, then the Google search, then my prayer answered!

“He (Dad) once sent me a card with the message “There are no coincidences . . . only God working undercover!”

Truly, our God does hear, answer, and work undercover!

Thursday, September 5, 2013

Forty years ago, we had a small prayer group at church that met every Tuesday. God blessed us each time we met with miraculous healings and obvious answered prayers; far beyond anything we had ever seen before. Our numbers increased each week as people discovered a personal relationship with the living Lord Jesus.

At one of these meetings, Carol, one of the members, announced her husband’s company had transferred them to Colorado from here in Kansas City. We had become a very close-knit group and everyone grieved to see her go.

Suddenly, in my mind’s eye I saw a huge map of the United States. Jesus came up from the southwest with a large bushel basket of dry leaves and dumped them right on Kansas City. He then bent down, cupped His hands, and blew on the leaves. The pile immediately caught fire and blew little embers all over the map which ignited each place they fell.

Our sadness turned to joy as we realized the Lord had prepared us in this little prayer group to love and care for one another with His love and power. Carol and her family were being sent on a mission to go out and start new revival fires in His name.

Within two weeks, another shared her family would soon move out of state. Others followed until about half the group had scattered throughout the United States. Eventually, Jesus scattered others as far as Australia.

When the Holy Spirit gives a prophecy, it often has an immediate fulfillment, but a long-term meaning also.

Now forty years later, everywhere I go people speak of the need for a sweeping, earth-changing revival. Others cry out about the challenges they face in their personal lives.

Will you join us in praying for lives to be supernaturally changed; for God to give people a new heart and heal them from the inside out? For Him to release people from wasted lives, seeminglys incurable diseases, and life-ruining bondages?

That’s what Jesus came to do. He left His Holy Spirit with us to complete the work He began. Will you let Him use you in whatever way He chooses? He is waiting to hear your response.

True Riches

My husband’s channel surfing finally landed on the History channel recently. The program listed the world’s resources; gold, oil, and water, among other things. At the end of each segment, they stated the dollar amount of each resource in today’s market. At the end of the hour, they estimated the world’s total riches in so many quadrillion dollars. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get my head around that much money. All I can understand is that’s one heck of a lot of cash.
The Holy Spirit reminded me of the scripture that says, “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” (Matthew 16:26 NLT)
People waste their whole lives grabbing for a piece of the world. Even if they were to gain the quadrillion dollars worth of riches and lost their soul, they would be the poorest of the poor.
I shake my head when I hear the ads to “buy gold to secure your future.” The Bible says in Ezekiel 7:19 that “their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord.”
It’s best to invest in the Kingdom of God. Buy from Him “gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see” (Revelation 3:18).
How do you do this? Revelation 3:19 holds the answer. “Repent.” That word means to quit doing evil; turn around. Go in the opposite direction. No one can do this on their own without the help of God.
Simply ask Him to forgive your sins, place your feet on a right path, and teach you His word in the Bible. It’s as easy as that. No hocus-pocus. No chanting. No hidden mystery.
In doing so, you have placed yourself in God’s hands. He will finish the work in you to prepare you for His soon return. (Philippians 1:6 “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”)
Which riches will you choose, God’s or the world’s?

Friday, August 23, 2013

There is none so deaf as he who will not hear,
none so blind, who will not see,
so lame as those who choose their own destiny
headed for utter darkness, alone, for all eternity.
In this day of increased knowledge, theories abound. People who embrace these ideas consider them new and enlightening. In essence, these are the old lies dressed up in new clothes.
Satan has been at this deception since the beginning. He told Eve to go ahead and eat the forbidden fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden. In essence, he was telling Eve, God doesn’t want you to eat the fruit of that tree because He knows then you’ll be as wise as He is. He’s holding out on you. Go ahead. Eat it. Don’t believe God’s lie.
Today people search the world over for “Truth,” when in essence; the real Truth is tucked away on a bookshelf in their own home in the pages of the book entitled “The Bible.”
People look for power. Real power comes from God and God alone. (Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you . . .”)
People look for peace. There is only one true peace that continues no matter what befalls people. (John 14:27-28 “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. You heard that I said to you, ‘I go away, and I will come to you.’”)
People look for purpose. A life lived without fulfilling this purpose is a life wasted. (Matthew 22:37-39 “ . . . You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”) The love God speaks of here is not human love, but agape love. God’s love loves even the most unlovable people.
People look for real, lasting relationships. There is no greater relationship than the one we can have with Jesus Christ. (John 14:21 “He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will disclose Myself to him.”)
People look for safety and security. There is no safer place on earth than in a loving Father’s arms. (Isaiah 43: 1-3 “But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel, ‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; . . .’”)
People look for a good outcome, even after they die. Some people make up a fairy tale that all people go to heaven or that we are reincarnated and come back in another form. God’s Word, the plumb-line for all of life, says differently. (Hebrews 9:27 . . . it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,”)
If, at the end of this life, we have not taken the opportunity to receive Jesus and His truth laid out plainly in the Bible for us, as our only way, we will be cast into the place where there is “the furnace of fire;” the “weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 13:41-42). Jesus said of Himself, “ . . .I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).
There is only one way. Will you put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ? Today is the day to do that while you still have time.

A Day with My Granddaughter

Recently I spent the day with one of my granddaughters. She’ll be a senior in high school next year. We spoke of many things, but one stands out in my memory. She told me of accompanying a friend to a Planned Parenthood facility. Her friend’s mother instructed her to go there to get a pregnancy test. I’ll let you hear the conversation we had.
“Mandy’s * mother was out of town so Mandy asked me to go with her.”
“Why didn’t she get a pregnancy test at the drugstore?”
My granddaughter shrugged. “Her mom wanted her to make sure the test was accurate. When we got there the door was locked, so we rang the bell. A big blurry guard came to the door.”
“Wha’dda want?” he asked.
“We’re here for a pregnancy test.”
“The guard eyed us up and down and then said, “Go back to your car. Leave all cell phones, cameras, and recording devices. Then come back.”
“We did as he asked. When we came back a person behind the desk asked us if we had any recording or camera equipment with us. We said we didn’t. Then she shoved a paper at us to sign stating the same. We signed it. Then she warned us we would be in big trouble if we were lying. She directed us to have a seat in the empty waiting area.
“The nurse came out and told Mandy to follow her.”
Mandy asked, “Can my friend come with me?”
“Absolutely not!”
My granddaughter continued, “My friend told me when she got back there, four women employees laughed and joked like this was some regular office gathering around the water cooler. Mandy took the test and it came back negative.
“After the test, the nurse talked with her for a while. ‘I’ve had three abortions myself. I wanted a boy and a girl. After my first boy, I just kept getting more boys. Now I’ve got my boy and a girl. Everything’s good.’”
I wonder. Is this the education Planned Parenthood so proudly touts as they take millions of our tax dollars each year?
For the past forty years, the spirit of murder has run rampant. We have murdered 53 million babies in this nation over that period. In the book of James it says, “The prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
Hard hearts, greedy for money, need to be changed. No amount of demonstration or protests on the street is going to do that. There is only one way. Only God can cause that to happen. He will only move if we pray. Will you join me in asking God Almighty to send a sweeping revival so that God’s gift of life is once again revered?
*Not her real name.

Update to a 9/11 Story

In God's Little Miracle Book II I wrote a story told to me by a life-time friend, Grant Besley entitled, "My Unforgettable Night."

Grant was the Captain of a United Airlines 747 jet on a fourteen-hour flight from Los Angeles headed for Sydney, Australia, on September 11, 2001. He got the word about the ongoing tragedy in the east as they flew in the dark over the Pacific Ocean. They discovered terrorists aboard their plane. He told me, "I wondered if we would survive the night."

He and his crew did survive to tell the tale. On the 10th of July 2013, eleven years and 10 months after that fateful day of 9/11, Grant was a passenger in a small plane piloted by a friend. The plane spiraled out of control and crashed 200 feet short of the Taos, NM runway. Grant had logged over 30,000 hours of flight time in his life. He died doing what he loved best. Rest in peace, my friend.

In the above picture, Grant is the second man on the right shown here with his crew that flew together that frightful night. If you would like to read more of his story, click here. It's available in e-reader and paperback.

The Lost Wallet

Last week at work, I made my way around the mechanic bays at a car dealership I visit every Tuesday as a corporate chaplain.

“How are things, Andrew?”

“Not too good, chaplain.”

“Wanna talk about it?”

He put down his wrench and wiped his hands on a grease rag. “It’s been a string of things lately, but last Saturday was the last straw. I lost my wallet at Zona Rosa Mall.

“I must have dropped my wallet out of my baggy sweat pants in the mall parking lot when I got in the car. This is such a hassle. Had to make a police report and cancel all my credit cards. This afternoon I’ll get a new driver’s license. I’ve gone back three times to look for it. Even called the store near where I parked several times. It’s just not there.”

“That’s so hard when you have to replace everything. You know, the Lord knows where that wallet is. Can we just ask Him now to reveal it?”


I prayed, “Lord God, who sees and knows all, Andrew and I come before You now. Please make visible where his wallet is. We ask You to return it to him in the name of Jesus by the power of His blood, shed for us. Amen.”

I moved on to the next technician.

The next Tuesday, I had all but forgotten about the wallet.

Andrew hailed me as I approached his bay. “Hey, chaplain. Guess what. The police called me the day after we prayed last week. Someone turned in my wallet. Can you believe it?”

“That’s wonderful! Where did they find it?”

“Right where I parked.”

“Four days later?”

“Yeah. Someone found it and turned it in.”

I prepared to ask my next question when he continued.

“And everything was there. Credit cards, social security card, money. Nothing was even rearranged.”

I love my job. It’s such fun to walk in Jesus footsteps and pray what He nudges me to pray.

Good News

As Christians, we have great news. Jesus came, lived, died and rose again so that we might live forever with Him. These flowers seem to be shouting the good news.

Are you sharing the Truth that the world is dying to hear?
