Walking in Jeremiah’s Shoes

There is an old Indian saying about “walking in another man’s moccasins.” Basically, it means to put yourself in another’s place before making a judgment. If you take the time to read the book that bears his name you can begin understand why Jeremiah was called “the weeping prophet”.

“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD” (Psalm 27:13-14)


Looking Back to Look Ahead

As a child I grew up living just a short distance from Grandma and Grandpa’s farm. I could see the house from my upstairs bedroom window.

I used to wonder if they ever slept!
