Advent Day 8: Beauty in the Waiting

During the hustle & bustle of Christmas, it seems counter-intuitive to think about waiting. However, life is brimmed with such moments. Imagine putting yourself in the shoes of the Israelites of old. They waited and waited and waited for the promised Messiah to arrive. And over and over and over, God promises that the day would surely come.  Read Genesis 18:1-15. Abraham and Sarah … Read More Advent Day 8: Beauty in the Waiting

Be Present

I wonder what would happen if we put our phones away. Stop obsessing with who’s who and Hollywood. Put aside politics and the daily news. And rather…start looking across the table. Listening to what is being said.

Day 35 – The Graduation Speech

Today we read Paul’s final benediction to the somewhat unpredictable Corinthian church. His closing remarks in 2 Cor. 13:11-14 remind me of ones you might hear at a graduation ceremony. Poignant.

These are real people with real problems and real jobs and … Read More Day 35 – The Graduation Speech

No Need to Worry: God is in Control

There come times I need to be reminded that God is sovereign. He’s in control. Of all things. From the beginning to the end. He is working all things together for the good of those who love Him. He has a plan. He has a story to be told. Nothing takes Him by surprise. He has an answer for everything. All things, big and … Read More No Need to Worry: God is in Control

WHAT IS FAITH AND HOW DO I GET IT?

I want to live like Jesus. I hope that I willingly surrender in order to seek Him more. I  wish I didn’t crave the things of this world. But I have a problem. There is a war going on inside. I cannot figure out how to manipulate God to give me exactly what I want and when I want it. And if I’m going to live … Read More WHAT IS FAITH AND HOW DO I GET IT?
