A New Endeavor

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, I am embarking on a new endeavor.  One of the things I have been doing since 2007 is writing a weekly edition of “Dear People.” It is an endeavor that I believe I am to continue, but in a new way. I think it is time for the […]

A New Time

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, There is a Greek word in the New Testament, Kairos, that’s translated as time, seasons, due time and opportunity. When we understand the times and seasons we are living in, we can better cooperate with what the Lord is doing in our lives and take advantage of what […]

Happy Endings

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, We all know someone who began something with a flourish of activity and enthusiasm. But when trials and disappointments hit, they did not keep going. Many, many people begin well, but not near as many end well.  Think of all the broken marriages, failed businesses, unfinished schooling and […]

Create Your Future

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, In the last couple of years of Bob Jones’ life, I heard him speak about hope more than anything else. Even on his death bed, the last word Bob Jones gave Becky and I, was about the future and hope God has for us. We’ve walked through some really dark […]

Holy Spirit Rhythm

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, God is a God of rhythm. All creation works in rhythms. There are days and nights, seasons and years. There are times to plant and times to harvest, times to advance and times to be still, there are beginnings and endings and so forth (Eccl. 3:1-8).  Rhythms are […]

Lamp Post To Lamp Post

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, As a child, I was afraid of the dark. Whenever I found myself in a dark place, I would run as fast as I could to the nearest light. There were times I would literally run from light post to light post.  When I became a believer, my […]
