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...
Will We Trust God?
Published
Why oh why do we place certain conditions on the love of God? We who are unable to see or understand the full picture are quick to say that God has abandoned us the moment we face any sort of trouble, calamity, persecution, hunger, financial...
Through The Cracks...
Published
Yesterday, I wrote a blog entitled In Spite Of Myself in which I talked about what God can do with us; even if we are "cracked pots". A comment made by @clifrad got me to thinking about how "cracks" are not always necessarily a...
In Spite Of Myself
Published
Patsy Clairmont wrote a book entitled "God Uses Cracked Pots". I'm so glad He does for you see, that is exactly what I am. I always have been a "cracked pot" but over the past few years my cracks have become, shall we say, a...
Seeking God's Face Or Seeking His Hand?
Published
The second year of the public ministry of Jesus Christ is sometimes known as "The Year of Popularity". Most of the miracles of Jesus recorded in the Bible occurred during this time and public opinion of Jesus was at it's height. It is...
In Him Alone
Published
I love the song, "In Christ Alone" by Keith and Kristyn Getty. When I was going through chemo, I would sometimes slip downstairs painfully, sit down at the piano and sing: In Christ alone my hope is found; He is my light, my strength, my...
Who Is It For?
Published
Recently, I read an article where the author was criticizing contemporary worship songs. They preferred hymns. While there is certainly nothing wrong with having a preferred music style, it got me to thinking about worship in general. Exactly who is...
Have A Blessed And Happy Birthday, B2Y!
Published
During my more than four years here at CB , I have been privileged to not only meet a number of people; I have been able to meet some people who have proved over time and circumstances that they are indeed, my friends. Most of these people I have...
