Elevated Faith Spiritual Growth


Wake up sleepy-head! Rise and Shine!

“How long will you lie there, O sluggard?   When will you rise from your sleep?”   (Proverbs 6:9).   Remember, the same God who “gives to His beloved in sleep” also created the rooster!   It’s time to rise and shine for the Lord!   He has work for you to do!

You city-folks, don’t forget to turn-on and turn-up your “mechanical” and “electronic roosters (i.e. alarm clocks)!   What’s your version of cock-a-doodle-do?

See you bright and early tomorrow morning!   It’s going to be a wonderful day – God wants to speak to us, and listen to us, before we’re on our way!

Welcome to this blog site. My name is Tom Drenoske. I am the third in a line of four with that name, and currently live in a suburb of Portland, Oregon. I became a Christian on Christmas Eve, 1970. In 1978 I graduated from Multnomah School of the Bible's one-year Graduate Program. Four years later I graduated from Denver Seminary with a Master's degree in Biblical Literature. I have enjoyed over 25 years of ministry as a campus minister, pastor, interim pastor, and chaplain. Please go to the About Page at the back of this site for more information about me, my reasons for setting up this blog site with Word Press, and an introduction to the sermons I am placing on this site. These sermons on my blog site,, are thorough, devotional, scriptural, understandable, practical and enjoyable. I prefer to study through a book of the Bible, chapter-by-chapter, verse-by-verse, and am currently in the Gospel of John. I have also written several devotional articles for the Godinterest blogsite. Thank you for visiting. Please come again. I welcome any comments or questions you might have.

Thank you for your appreciation and for your comment, Jo. Sorry, I responded to your comment below my article also, and it was posted as “anonymous”. It’s not anonymous, it’s me! Tom D.

A great Light once came into a dark world. But it did not shine long: Jesus died on a cross. Soon afterward His disappointed friends were filled with joy at the news of His resurrection. They learned that He had given His life as a sacrifice for sins, and that His death was the basis for their salvation. Jesus’ free gift enables salvation for all who shall ever believe. And earnest light-bearing followers continue to show forth that Light.

Time to wake up.

Thank you, Sandi. Hope you stop by again. I have another post that’s awaiting approval. If you like sermons, I have over 120 of them at May the joy of the Lord be your strength.
