Another Daily Musing from the Comfy Chair with a View

All three formats of “Elaina” hit #1 new release on Amazon. I am amazed, excited, astounded, and most of all grateful.

Where did we learn to love?

Where did human creativity come from? The Creator of all things. Mankind looked at creation and recreated drawings and statues and dolls and much more. Where did human love come from? The One who loved first and best. God loved mankind even before He breathed life into Adam and formed Eve from Adam’s rib. He […]

What a crowd!

“After this” makes you think there’s some good stuff before this verse starts. There is. In the previous verses, John sees how God’s people are preserved. Through trial and tribulation, God is faithful to preserve those who bear His name. Then, John is given this vision of people from every nation, every tribe, every language […]

Walk to the Light

Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” So, why do we walk in so much darkness? Depression, discouragement, loneliness, fear… Let’s reread. Jesus didn’t say […]

Do good to everyone whenever you have the opportunity

Do good to everyone, the Book says. Everyone? we ask. Do you ever imagine the Holy Spirit just pointing back at the scripture you’re questioning? No? Just me. Well, okay. Imagine it now. God said everyone, so everyone it is. Let’s drop back a moment, because there’s a “therefore” in this mix. What’s it there […]

Love Your Enemies. Period.

Ooo, y’all! This “love your enemies” thing. That’s a mighty big calling. Maybe if I love them in my heart and just avoid them, that will be okay? Except Jesus said to be involved with them. *sigh* Okay. Okay. Let’s look at this somewhat rationally. Who was Jesus calling enemies? Earlier in the chapter, Luke […]

Believe and Turn

Just before Paul dictated these words – the belief is that his ‘thorn in the flesh’ was poor eyesight, possibly from his experience on the way to Damascus – Paul had shared the ways believers should be behaving. Older men, older women (who were to teach the younger women), younger men, and slaves were to […]

Leaders as servants?

When we think of leaders in our day and time, we think of people way “up there,” high above us, making scads more money, inaccessible, and never get their hands dirty. Sadly, some church leaders have become the same. This is NOT the model Jesus set forth. Jesus expects everyone He puts in a leadership […]
