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 […]

“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.

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!”

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.

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 […]

Hope from a Stump

Last spring, we noticed something odd growing in the middle of our crape myrtle tree. This particular tree is on the side of our house where we hardly ever play or walk, so we hadn’t paid much attention to it in the 6 months we had lived here. If you know crape myrtles, you know […]

Did You Bring Me Out Here to Die?

How many times have we said, “I think I’m gonna die!”? Most of us have used that phrase at the end of a long run, in the middle of a spinning class, after every Thanksgiving meal, after an all-nighter with a newborn, in the middle of VBS week, or at the end of August when […]

The Cost of Saying, “I am a Christian”…Then and Now

The Houston Chronicle featured the moving story of a young woman persecuted for her Christian faith.  Sixteen-year-old Julie Afab was working in an office in Pakistan.  A man who came to the office was offended by the silver cross she wore around her neck and asked her, “Are you a Christian?”  When she answered, “Yes, sir”, […]

Refueling in the Burn Out

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 “Ladies and Gentlemen we are sorry for the delay but it seems we cannot start the engines.” Those are […]
