On the Mountain of the Lord It Will Be Provided

Genesis 22  “Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied. 2 Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about.” Can you imagine hearing the voice of God telling you to do such an insane thing?  But Abraham had astounding faith and he recognized the voice of God.  Don’t know about you, I have trouble with both having faith and recognizing the voice of God.  But Abraham responded immediately “Here I am.”  He had an ear for hearing God.  There was no confusion, no arguing, no questioning, no “but God…. but…....

US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has just finished up talks with the Russian Foreign Minister and failed to get an agreement that would put more pressure on Tehran.  You know, diplomacy, negotiations, talks, carrots for Russia to increase sanctions against Iran because of their nuclear ambitions.  The highest Russian diplomat refused to take a harder stance labeling the actions against Iran “counterproductive.”  Why?  Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said they want to engage in additional diplomacy, negotiations, talks, and carrots for Iran to dispense with their production of nuclear weapons.  Notice that the UN has passed sanctions against Iran for the past 3 years to no avail.  Sound familiar?  Remember Iraq?  Remember the...

A friend of mine (Andrea Warden) who attends Providence Church is on a mission trip to Kenya.  I received a note from her today and wanted to  share it with you. Our days have been very busy! The guys have been working hard on random construction projects and we, ladies, have been building relationships with the girls at the Neema Home. Yesterday, we had a special outing to work with a middle-aged married couple from Washington named Jeff & Carla Picicci. They began doing missions work in Kenya a few years ago and the Lord gave them a very clear, great vision to begin what is now called “Rehema Ministries” ( They have a home for abandoned babies/children. Last year when they began, they had around 30 kids and have doubled in...

More American Arrogance

Great summary article  of Obama’s recent trip to Europe in which he apologized for the arrogance of Americans.  I thought he was POTUS?  See my previous posts about American arrogance.
