Thoughts & Intents
"Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you; he eats grass like an ox. See now, his strength is in his hips, And his power is in his stomach muscles. He moves his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are tightly knit. His bones are like beams of bronze, his ribs like bars of iron. He is the first of the ways of God; Only He who made him can bring near His sword.” Job 40:15-19

My Latest article on Bible Basics
How come the Bible never mentions dinosaurs? And where do we Christians make them fit in the story anyway? I hope you’re already reeling off the answers in your head by now, but a recent conversation has reminded me that many Christians are confused about dragons, dinosaurs, and unicorns.
From my heart to yours
I am so grateful to believe in and belong to an outrageously gigantic, wildly creative, incomprehensibly good God. The universe is such a grand place when your feet are planted on the Solid Rock. Though troubles swirl about my feet at times, they never can overwhelm me. I am high on a mountaintop, and I can see forever. Is this not an exhilarating day to be alive?
Serving our sweet Savior,
