Sharing what the Lord has taught me through: His Word, my mistakes, failures & successes and 47+ years as a Biblical counselor now retired.

I am a Christian having no position of power but I do have dominion under God (Psalm 8:4-9)

Who is the Creator and owner of all (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 42:5-7). As an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus Christ (Romans 8:16-17) I possess all things in Christ (II Corinthians 6:10). And to the extent I obey and speak His comprehensive Law Word (Psalm 119:96) I speak with His authority in every area of His creation (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 42:5-6) as all of the Bible applies to all of life (Genesis 1:17-31; Psalm 36:9). Look for my daily morning Bible messages on Facebook seeking to be Biblically comprehensive, as well as short and simple.

I am a student of the Bible and the basic tools I use are: The Reformation Study Bible, listening prayer, The Thompson Chain Reference Bible, and a Strong's Concordance. I also draw on my memory of hearing the Bible (Romans 10:17) through; parents, private study and memorization, Sunday School lessons, Bible school classes, Bible preaching and counseling I have prepared, done and listened to, prayed over and reflected on, over my lifetime of 79 years. I still struggle with my own weakness and foolishness (I Corinthians 1:27-31) and how poor my memory is. I realize more and more how little wisdom I have gained and there is so much more to learn.

I am only "scratching the surface" of understanding the personal infinite God and His ways and plan for all He has created (Proverbs 16:9; Ephesians 2:10).

Ephesians 5: 22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord.
5: 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
