Stranger in a Strange Land

The entire time I lived in Blount County, near Knoxville, I struggled to make connections with people. I knew deep within me He had a reason. I would talk to Adonai about this yet always stayed a stranger in a strange land, till the very end of my time there. Why?

Thoughts, On the Cusp of Elul

The Messiah, deliverer of our darkest thoughts and actions, is the only answer to our soulish woes. Our TRUE atonement lies in His resurrection power. As David once pled, “Create in me a clean heart, Oh GOD, and renew in me a resolute spirit…” (Ps 51:12 CJV). Oh how I treasure this season as we enter into the fall feasts into the season of our joy! Please allow me to share personal experience which occurred on the cusp of Elul.
