In It For The Long Haul
Published
Today I had lunch with several other cancer survivors from my church. As we were chatting, a comment was made which we could all relate to very much. Someone happened to say that when they were originally diagnosed, a number of years ago, they were...
But It's My Money!
Published
One day, my son needed something from the store. We lived within walking distance of a store where he get the item so I decided to just give him some money so he could go get it. I didn't have anything smaller than a $20.00 so I handed it to him...
Fear Not, For I Am With You
Published
As I read these words this morning, I thought about the time I went to sleep and came very close to not waking up. Who can say how often that possibility looms on the horizon for all of us? I don't know but I do know that for me, that became a...
The Stages And Ages Of Our Lives
Published
Reaching our twenties is a major milestone in the lives of many of us. We have become adults. We have left our school days or nearly left them behind us. Even if we have gone on to college often by our early to mid-twenties we have graduated and have...
He's Got Us Covered
Published
A comment made by my friend @shanijane aka Shani today on The Wall, got me to thinking a bit about God's provision. I hope she won't mind my using her as an illustration. Actually, I don't think she would, otherwise I would not be writing...
Integrity, It's More Than Just A Word
Published
Integrity is a word which a lot of businesses and organizations as well as individuals like to throw around. We may talk about the importance of having it. We may even talk about having it but integrity is more than just a word, it demands action. I...
But Will We Always See His Face?
Published
I was listening to a popular contemporary Christian song a little bit ago. It is one which I've heard many times before and it is a song of great encouragement. As I listened to it today, however, a particular line struck me: I just might bend but...
Sometimes It Just Takes Time
Published
We live in an "instant" society. Open a package, pour out the contents into a container, add a bit of water, stir, pop into the microwave for a minute or two and VOILA! We try to make everything in our lives "instant". If we have...
When Pride Gets In Our Way
Published
Most of us are familiar with the sad story of Abraham's nephew, Lot. When his father died, Lot came under the protection of his uncle, Abraham. According to the Bible, the herds of Abraham did not just prosper. The herds of Lot did as well. So...
That Could Be Us
Published
As one of the millions of Americans who are "underwater" and who also experienced a substantial loss of income over the past year due to the long-term effects of a disabling illness, I have a great deal of interest in the new HARP program....
But That's Not My Gift!
Published
Over the past few years, this seems to have become the battle cry of Christians. "I would do it but you see, that's not my gift!" There are variations of this of course. We might substitute the word "calling" instead of...
Trusting Though We Don't Understand
Published
Although it happened more than 34 years ago, my first big lesson in trusting God no matter what remains as clear in my mind as if it happened yesterday. It was on October 17, 1977 and I was 16 years old. It was in the fall of 1975 when my dad was...
Though I Can't See It At The Moment
Published
One of the questions which so many people grapple with, both Christian and non-Christian alike, is why God allows bad things to happen to good people. I think this question is a particular challenge to those of us who follow Christ. We talk a lot...
His Life Lived In Us
Published
There are rather sobering words. Is this true of our lives? We talk about being dead to sin. We talk about being a new creation in Christ; alive in Him but when the world looks at us, what do they see? Do they see us or do they see Christ living in...
Some Thoughts On Becoming A Good Steward
Published
The Bible has a great deal to say about stewardship. Jesus himself teaches that we are to be good stewards. So what exactly is a steward? It is somone who manages the domestic concerns of a household. They manage things like the finances, supervise...
Well... I'll Remember You In Prayer
Published
I want to start out this blog by saying it is not my intent to minimize prayer nor praying for others by any means. I believe we need to pray, not just for ourselves but for others as well. It is critical! What this blog is going to address is the...
Alive In Christ!
Published
I will never forget the day when I truly "awakened" after I had a ruptured brain aneurysm. After nearly a week of being on "auto-pilot", so to speak, responding only when spoken to and not interacting with my environment (and not...
Am I Listening?
Published
All my life, I had been taught that my body was a "house" in which my soul or the "real" me was contained. It is the "vessel"; I am the contents so to speak. When I was rendered helpless when a brain aneurysm ruptured, I...
But What About Me?
Published
Earlier today, as I was reading a blog by @billyb entitled What About This Man, I started thinking, what about me? When I hold a "mirror" before me, what exactly do I see? Am I a reflection of Christ or am I merely a reflection of me? Am I...
Our Place Within The Body Of Christ
Published
Most of us give little thought to our body on the cellular level. Oh, we may notice the uh... shedding a dead group of cells here and there at times but unless it is at a noticeable level, we tend to ignore it. When you are treated for a disease such...
Why Do We Condemn One Another?
Published
I suppose that all of us have been guilty of it at one time or another. We believe there is something we should or should not do. We discover that there are other Christians who do not feel the same way as us and right away we decided that we must...
Take Every Thought Captive
Published
Over the past few weeks, we've been having a sermon series at our church entitled "Re-Think". Often times when we think of taking our thoughts captive, we think about negative thoughts Last night, the pastor who was preaching challenged...
What Do I Need To Do?
Published
We are facing a crisis and we go to God in prayer seeking His help and deliverance. This is, of course, the first thing we should do. We "take it to the Lord and leave it there." Again, this is not a bad thing. Far too often, we lay things...
I Will Trust You, No Matter What!
Published
If we are honest about it, that is very hard to grasp sometimes. We live in a fallen world and all around us we see hardship, loneliness, broken hearts, suffering, illness and even death. Those of us who follow Christ are confronted by these things...
But I Can't See You!
Published
Earlier this morning, I read a blog entitled: Holding Onto Faith written by @Sjschafer. As I read the blog, I remembered a story my mother used to sometimes tell when she was doing children's services. The story was about a little girl who lived...
