God’s Space

July 27, 2015


Awesome things will you show us … O Hope of all the ends of the earth and of the seas that are far away. I recently had the honor of baptizing a child. Leading up to the event and afterwards, all I thought about was the hope we have in our children. We hope that all of the care, protection and knowledge we try to impart on their lives will serve them well and lead them straight to God, even though we know from experience that the path is not always straight. Which is why I believe faith communities are important, that they strive to be vehicles that help to encourage and build up our faith and show God’s awesome love beyond the walls and the vastness of the earth and seas. Gracious God may we always stand ready to receive one whose path crosses into your spaces.

It MIGHT Be All About Me Afterall

but with the wrong attitude diamonds are unseen . . . Martha L Shaw

The old worn mirror

held in the hands of many

long before me

seems at first glance to

poorly depict my image.

In truth,

it does a  far better job

compared to the shiny new one

for it looks much deeper

to find the real me.

“Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel…?”  Sometimes the light that emanates from within us is hindered by the shadows, secrets and side views. Much like the sun which rises daily is sometimes covered by the clouds it doesn’t mean that it’s not shining. Regardless of what others see, or what we cannot see, our hope is in that light. Every day we rise with God’s word, we are God’s sun. Shine On!

False Prophets

July 20, 2015

The trouble in life is not the struggle or challenge. It is the false notion of separation we feel. The Lord recently reminded me that nothing can separate me from His love. NOTHING. Romans 8:38 – Martha L Shaw


His Will

If the mama bird

kept her babies in the nest,

loved. . . they’d never fly.
