Time for a Break!

No, I haven’t broken any bones. I’m just taking a short rest from blogging 😉 Feel free to browse past posts or booklets available on The Voice of One. At the bottom of the page, there is a list of blogs I follow. I consider every blog I follow worth reading. You might find some…

Happy

Much of Hebrews chapter 3 centers on a quote from Psalm 95, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness….”   Psalm 95 is referring to an incident in Exodus 17.  Israel’s wilderness journey brings them to Rephidim where there…

When the Wind Blows

In December, I finished a new CD of songs the Lord has given me over the years. The album is called, “Poured Out” and centers on themes of communion—the Lord pouring Himself out at the cross as well as our participation in His death and life. The bread and wine of communion ceremonies depict these…

Out, Damn’d Spot!

 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her  to make her holy, cleansing her with the washing of water by the word. He did this to present the church to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or anything like that, but holy and blameless“ (Eph. 5:25-27).  Our pastor…

At the Risk of Repeating Myself…

Many times on The Voice of One I have expressed my concern over the spiritual ruin our culture is courting.  My biggest concern is not racism, sexism, classism, or any of the other things society is morbidly obsessed about.  What keeps me up at night is the accusation and unforgiveness running roughshod over America today….

The Beast

I’m doing something a little different in this post. The picture above is from our church service on 2/7/21. If you click it, it will (hopefully) take you to a video of our service. Our church has been going through Revelation. Three of us are taking turns preaching. One is our pastor, Roger. Another is…

Friends!

Jesus is as fully man’s Son as He is God’s.  Hebrews tells us Jesus could not mediate between God and man unless He was like us in every way (Heb. 2:17).  This is why the writer of Hebrews says it was appropriate that God should make the source of our salvation perfect through sufferings (Heb….

The Blesser and the Breaker

This post is an excerpt from my booklet, “The Blesser and the Breaker.” I feel like the Lord wants me to meditate on it so thought I’d share it as well. *** “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what are they among so many?” Jesus said, “Make…

The Wind and the Shadows

Followers of The Voice of One know that I periodically post poems I’ve written. This past summer, the Lord put it on my heart to organize all my poems from the past 25 years or so. This meant pulling poems from notebooks, my laptop, my tablet, and putting them all in one place. I also…

Trite and True

They’ll know we are Christians by our glad-hands and bling, by our pearly-gate smiles and sermons on tithing; by the size of our church and the rules that we keep (though a suit is a suit, and a goat’s not a sheep). They’ll know we are Christians by the power we bear, by the HOLY…
