We Christians: God’s Olympians

We Christians are  God’s Olympians. Hurdlers if you will. And we tend to press towards the finish line hurdling over 3 areas of life: Insecurity, Courage and Victory. In the book of Exodus, Moses in just a few verses of chapter four faces all of the above elements of God’s Track & Field. But Moses pleaded with […]

One Step Closer to Home: Casual or Cause

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:25 Yesterday I walked. I walked like I was one step closer to home. With every step, even in the opposite direction of my front door, I was one step closer to home. I enjoy […]

Authored In Christ

Publish His glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things He does. 1 Chronicles 16:24 When you write is it a gift gladly shared? Is it a gift you want to return? To the Lord? Thanking God, ultimately, for His publishing rights? This post is inspired by ‘Planting Potatoes’. I, like so […]

Stretch My Faith Heavenly Father, Stretch My Faith

But Caleb tried to quiet the people as they stood before Moses. “Let’s go at once to take the land,” he said. “We can certainly conquer it!” (Numbers 13:30) Picture the word ‘faith’ in scripture. It’s strong. It’s durable. It’s unbreakable. It’s everlasting. It’s complete trust in the LORD. But what’s it like to really […]

Hot or Hell?

Loving God means keeping His commandments, and His commandments are not burdensome. 1 John 5:3 There is this false sense of security we all have about God Almighty. That because God is love there is no way He would send me anywhere predicated by the way I’m living now. ‘No, not my God!’ But why? Do we […]

How Can I Serve the Lord Today?

For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared   for me. I was in prison, and you visited me. Matthew 25:35-36 […]

You Can’t: How to Make Your Spouse…

Pray. Read the Bible. Listen. Communicate. Tithe. Save. Cook. Clean. Show affection. Initiate intimacy. Spend time. Be faithful. Stay. Whew…It would seem that ‘making’ our spouse ‘do’ what we want requires a lot effort, doesn’t it? Not from their perspective, but from ours. It would seem we want to create this super-spouse more than they […]

A Little Less JESUS and A Lot More ME

2 Timothy 4:2-3 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. (3) For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers […]

Spectacular Monday

“LIKE” if there’s nothing spectacular about me… “LIKE” if there’s nothing spectacular about you, too… “LIKE” if the only spectacular thing about you and me is JESUS CHRIST and His Saving Grace. Photo Credit: Robert Couse-Baker
