Christians, I remember my last week of finals in college before graduation. It was a very exciting time for me because for four and a half years I had studied, taken tests, studied more, taken more tests and that routine was getting old. I was ready to kiss those bubble answer sheets goodbye. No more … More The Many Tests of God
Christians, have you ever been tested by God Almighty? Have you truly been challenged in your faith? Have you ever been put in a position where you wondered, “Did I Really hear from God?” or “Am I a raving mad lunatic?” I have faced trials as such, I have been put in scenarios by God … More Right on Track
Christians, recently I was realizing that often we face trying circumstances, situations that are difficult or pressing. We can get really tired of being tried or tested and it can seem like God is really letting us have it. I was thinking how when we face these different circumstances it often changes us. It can … More The Prayers we Prayed…remember?
Christians, recently during a time of praise and worship, we were singing about God being a good Father, how He calls us deeper, and what arose in my spirit was: He is calling us deeper, to the ‘Eye of the Storm’. I’ve lived in the Midwest all my life, I’ve heard the warning sirens go … More The Eye of the Storm
Christians, a work in progress is often hard to understand. Every painting an artist paints inevitably will not be the same. The brush strokes on the canvas can vary in length, width, depth, as well as color, frequency and consistency. I believe that God is painting a portrait of each and every one of our … More The Great Artist
Christians, my wife and I used to occasionally walk along a specific path with many trees around it. At one point there were trees and shrub bushes that grew over the path. It was really annoying to walk around them, and we wanted them gone. One day, to our surprise, we walked along the path … More Removing the Roots
Christians, when I was in middle school, it was the time when those WWJD, (What Would Jesus Do?) bracelets with the tiny buckle were trendy. I remember a couple of my friends wore them, I think I may have had one, but I didn’t have the courage to wear it. Anyway, a friend of mine … More F.R.O.G.
Christians, have you ever felt the weight of the world on your shoulders? Have you ever felt the pressure of the challenges you face so strong? Do you know the intensity of the trials you face? We are blessed, able to live above sin, purified, sanctified, and soon to be glorified, right? Why do we … More The Pressure Cooker
Christians, how many times in our lives do we see going down physically as a good thing? No one really likes to see their pay check go down, their bank account go down, their retirement savings go down, or their health go down in any way. As kids we didn’t like to see our grades … More Down is the Way Up
One of the greatest questions we ask in our daily life is, “how long?” We ask it to almost everyone. From the person taking our name at the restaurant, to the auto mechanic who is changing our oil, to the pizza delivery chain where we place our order, or to the mail person as we … More How Long, O Lord
