experience an extraordinary God in ordinary life

Daily devotionals, short stories and Bible studies are designed to encourage you and strengthen you in your walk with Jesus. Come on in, sit a spell and be encouraged.

To learn more about us and what we believe, check out the “About”page. We believe that the Bible is not simply some dusty, old, irrelevant book. It is the living, active, wholly inspired Word of God.

I write devotionals on a daily basis. Most of us are ordinary people, living ordinary lives.



 That is an excellent place to meet God. The Lord loves ordinary people … He must because He made so many of us. My devotionals are drawn from ordinary life and I hope illustrate the truths of Scripture. Scripture trumps my writing in every way, yet many people find it helpful in their faith walk.

I hope you enjoy what you find here. Please feel free to subscribe. https://mailchi.mp/f27bbeb09c22/gleanings-1

Hallelu Yah (praise God)

Soli Deo Gloria (for the glory of God alone.)


Issue 1502 – Peek – July 19, 2024

Many people claim to know about God, but relatively few truly know Him and have a relationship with Him. He calls to us, enabling an intriguing peek. That peek is designed to call us into an ever-deepening relationship with Him.

Issue 1501 – Road Trip – July 18, 2024

We can trust that since He created us for the purpose of being in Glory with Him forever, He knows exactly what our hearts truly desire and will have that ready for us.


Issue 1497 – Carried – July 12, 2024

The baby grebe will soon be big enough to be independent, and its parents will move on to other things. God never moves on to “other things.” Our Father remains important from before our conception through all of eternity.

Issue 1495 – Stuffy – July 10, 2024

I am suggesting a radical old idea. Allow the church and its leadership to love people where they are. Let the church be all it was called to be. 


Issue 1494 – Bug Buffet – July 9, 2024

We are called to forgive and be graceful. We are called to be loving and generous. That’s hard to do when we’re in the midst of a self-created, self-centered hurricane of anger and frustration.

Issue 1493 – No Roller Skating – July 8, 2024

In the pews and in the pulpit, there are sheep and goats. In the ministry and the masses there are weeds and wheat. We will be surprised when we get to glory, both by who is there and who is not.
