What are you doing with God’s Word? It’s an important question, one I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. If we, those who call ourselves Believers, followers of Jesus, say we believe the Word of God, profess that the Bible is inspired by God, it’s important to ask ourselves: What, on a daily basis, am I doing with the Word of God? Do we read it? There’s no condemnation intended here, ... View Post
Count Your Blessings: It has more power than you think
It’s an old song, a very good old song: "Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your blessings, see what God has done." This song has special meaning to me. After my grandmother’s death, my aunt sent me a copy of the song, one photocopied from an old hymnal. On it was a note: “This song was one of your MaMac’s favorites.” While she suffered from failing health, both physically and ... View Post

I am amply supplied. The same is true for you. You lack nothing! God has given us everything we ... View Post
Positioned for victory: you need a spiritual crisis plan
Whether you’re a “planner” by nature or not, there are times you simply need a plan. Schools hold fire drills, public buildings have emergency exit plans, and on every single airplane flight, attendants give instructions for what to do in case of an emergency. Likewise, we need a spiritual crisis plan; one put in place long before we need it. I’ve seen it in my life and the lives of many ... View Post
For when you struggle – even if there’s no apparent reason.
A lot of people I know are struggling — it’s been this way for a while. They’re walking through difficult circumstances, ones that remind us that this world is not our ultimate home. Trials that make you thankful that this world is not all there is! Other friends are overwhelmed, but can’t point specifically to a circumstance that explains their struggle. I’ve been part of this latter ... View Post
