Embracing the Portion of God

“The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places…” Psalm 16:6 I was living a beautiful life. Married to the man I love–my best friend–for over 30 years, two wonderful children, a sweet extended family, a loving church family, and precious friends. We were enjoying a comfortable home with a comfortable income from work we […]

Waiting in Your "Saturdays"

I don’t want us to be a generation that gives up too easy. My fear is that that is entirely what we have become. I was talking with a friend recently about the dreams and desires we pray for – about how we have yet to see them truly come to pass. The waiting, the […]

Steady My Heart

Evening was here, and the lights in the room were off to beckon sleep, but the lights and sounds from the hallway streamed through the curtain separating our room from the screech-screech-screech of nurses’ shoes and code blues on the ICU floor.  My sister was nestled beside me in a recliner and I on the foldout couch.

Jesus, Faith, and Fish

Have you ever noticed in the New Testament, when fish are involved, that Jesus is ultimately teaching about faith? Think about it—Jesus fed the five thousand with fish and bread (Matt 14:13-21); He did the same thing with four thousand on a different occasion (Matt 15:29-39); He caused the disciples’ nets to overflow with fish […]

To the Woman Facing Change

To the Woman Facing Change

To the woman standing knee high in boxes as she packs up her life. To the woman sitting on an examination table who was just told she is facing an uphill battle. To the woman who just lost a loved one. To the woman who just wore a cap and gown and walked across the […]

Living a Life of Uncompromised Faith

“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself…” (Daniel 1:8a)   Standing Strong Even When Circumstances Are Out of Your Control  Daniel and his friends were probably around 15 years of age when they were taken captive and transported to Babylon. They were ripped from their homeland and separated from their […]

How Much of Jesus Do We Want?

This past Sunday I got to share the Lord’s Supper with my church family. I always enjoy this time, but there was something different about this one. Instead of quiet contemplation and examination, I was more distracted by my oldest daughter’s presence. I was keenly aware of her movements and especially her questions. I decided […]

Three Women and The Cross

As we prepare our hearts to celebrate resurrection of our Lord this Sunday, I am reminded of three women who stood at the cross of Christ – women who were just like you and me. While we may not truly know their thoughts or their words, perhaps we can imagine … She stands at a […]

Sometimes All I Can Pray Is, "Help!"

Sometimes All I Can Pray Is, "Help!"

I read a tweet today that said, “Sometimes the only prayer you can muster is, “Help!”” Amen to that. I’m rarely one to nap. But some days, when long weeks are followed by early weekend mornings, the universe leaves me no choice. Normally my brain doesn’t shut off long enough for me to sleep amidst a day; when the sun […]

3 Truths About God That Got Me Through 16 Years of Sickness

This month marks two years since I spent nearly two weeks at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. going through a battery of tests in basically every medical department there is. The answers we found there were different than what we had expected. Even on our return flight to Texas, we were a bit leery […]
