If You're Never In A Storm, You'll Never Walk On The Water
Published
Earlier this morning, as I read a blog by @caleb2010, entitled Throwing Off Fear, this thought came to my mind. If you never are in a storm... you will never walk on the water. I believe this to be true and yet "the storm" is the very last...
Suspended On Christ
Published
Back when I taught second grade, we did a science unit on life-cycles every spring. One of the projects we did was observing Painted Lady caterpillars develop into butterflies. The process always amazed me, no matter how often I observed it. The...
Not I, But Christ
Published
It is impossible for us to save ourselves. That's why we need a savior and that Savior is Jesus Christ. When we fall at His feet, confess our sins and repent does this mean we save ourselves? While some suggest that is exactly what we are saying,...
Complacent Or Living?
Published
One of the enemy's favorite weapons to use against Christians is complacency. We go to church each week. We even have our particular spot where we like to be. We sing the songs, we say the right words, we have the right look on our face and we may...
Reflections Of The Road I've Traveled
Published
The news was not good. In addition to the other serious health issues she had been told the devastating news that the cancer had metastasized. She had struggled to be optimistic when I first met her two weeks earlier. She is a follower of Christ but...
Building Up Endurance
Published
Over the past couple of weeks, my pastor has been preaching a series on tithing and giving. Tonight he shared a couple of stories he'd heard this past week. The first story was about a couple who told him that last year they had decided to tithe...
Never Forget: He Leads You
Published
The words of a beloved hymn entitled "He Leadeth Me" by Joseph H. Gilmore are: He leadeth me, O blessed thought! O words with heav nly comfort fraught! Whate er I do, where er I be Still tis God s hand that leadeth me. He leadeth me, He...
The Words We Say And Things We Think
Published
I'd said my prayers and climbed into my little bed. My grandma tucked me in and smiled at me. I grinned for I knew what was coming. She was going to say, "The Verse". "Let the words of my mouth," In a small, solemn voice with...
Will We Let Him?
Published
When trouble or tragedy touches our lives, we are faced with two choices. Will we run to God and allow Him to hold us and heal our wounds or will we push him away in anger and bitterness? God is God but He will not force us to cling to Him for love...
A Living Testimony
Published
Earlier today, I read a blog entitled We May Not Always Like God's Answer To Our Prayers by @blessings2you. While reading his blog, I thought about a blog I wrote and published here at CB on June 15, 2008, nine days after my last chemo infusion....
Our Precious Inheritance
Published
It started with the enemy, this desire for something more. Living in the presence of God just was not enough... he wanted to be God and he's not. I'm very thankful he is not, aren't you? Bent upon destruction, in trying to "get back...
The Shield Of Love
Published
When we take refuge in the Lord, when we love Him, walk with Him and follow His ways, God surrounds us with His shield of love. Notice that He surrounds us. He protects us in the front and in the rear. Regardless of the onslaught, we are safe... as...
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...
