• Soul Scaffold ~ Betrayal & Torment

    7 December, 2017

    Betrayal will always fail to explain how much it charges. As with Judas, betrayers have first died on the inside before they die 'on the outside'. Filled with shame Judas returned his bribe, then hung himself. (See Matthew 27:1-10) After the betrayal the inducement becomes as empty as the…...[read more]

  • Steak On The Plate While You Wait?

    5 December, 2017

    God's goodness to His own is not simply limited to their after-life, to only a heaven gifted harmony that can never be lost, stolen or surrendered. A pastor mate of mine was heard to quip at least once or twice: There is steak on your plate while you wait, not just pie in the sky when you…...[read more]

  • Soul Scaffold ~ Satisfaction & Peace

    30 November, 2017

    I believe satisfaction and peace are bed-partners, they kiss each other. They are as elusive to the earth-bound human spirit as they are close to each other. In a cry of blessed dependence the Psalmist wrote: My soul is satisfied when my hands are raised to you O' Lord. (Psalm 63:4-5,…...[read more]

  • Soul Scaffold ~ True Refuge

    23 November, 2017

    A man may live in a mansion while his soul is flattened in a monsoon. Refuge and shelter are synonyms for the peace-seeker. The seeking of refuge is as necessary for the soul as shelter is to the body. Mankind alike will face the time when the help of their fellowman has become worthless, for the…...[read more]

  • 2 Bible Verses OFTEN used in ERROR

    20 November, 2017

    The Bible is present but consulted lightly, and so recalled too loosely. Frequently we remember the portion but not the lot. This memory becomes traded upon, and so memory myths morph into 're-told truths'. For my entire Christian life I have heard these two verses misquoted by Christians…...[read more]

  • A Soul Scaffold from the Desert ~ Depressed?

    16 November, 2017

    Abba Euprepius (a fourth century A.D. desert monk) taught: knowing that God is mighty and faithful, have faith in Him and you shall share what is His. No person of faith turns to God in pain and loses out. No person of faith rolls tears down their cheeks that God won't count. No person of…...[read more]

  • Soul Scaffold ~ The Needy

    2 November, 2017

    Is it too fanciful to consider that a king's heart may plead as yours? King David wrote countless Psalms. The poor and needy are a frequent theme in his Psalms. These are as much songs to be sung, as prayers to be prayed. Could a king's heartfelt prayer also speak for you? Sovereign Lord,…...[read more]

  • Soul Scaffold ~ Emptiness

    26 October, 2017

    The altar within the soul lays achingly empty when there is nought upon it to worship. Souls can be as barren as King David's desert, but his soul's altar was still full: You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you;I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you,in a dry and parched…...[read more]
