I was curious as to why, just after this cute little tree was planted right […]

How God Speaks Through Our Unfulfilled Longings

By on October 10, 2017 in Christian Life with 2 Comments

Watching the News Without Losing Your Mind (Or Your Faith!)

By on September 28, 2017 in Christian Life with 0 Comments

A few years ago, I wrote an article about anxiety and the sovereignty of God. At that time, my children were pre-school and young elementary age, and I struggled with worry over them.

Can you think of the last time you gave in to something you know you shouldn’t have? What causes you to lose heart, give up on doing good, and give into temptation even when you know it is wrong? Consider Galatians 6:9: “Do not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time you will reap […]

I Have a Serious Question: Have You Really Met God At This Level?

By on August 15, 2017 in Christian Life with 3 Comments

“It takes 5 seconds to get right with God.”  I said as she stared at me blankly. “5 seconds.  Not an hour, not a week, not a day, not 30 minutes, not even one minute.  Just five seconds.” It had been an hour since Patty knocked on my door, hoping to find the answers to […]
