Wondering Where God is in your Life?

I read a number of Christian blogs and I’ve noticed an interesting trend. When issues such as evolution, abortion, same sex marriage, or hyper-sexed women’s fashions come up, anyone who expresses a strong biblical position is immediately hacked to death and insulted as “unloving” “intolerant” or just plain evil. We’ve decided that God, and His […]


Living Your Purpose

Your life is the sum of your daily choices Your life is a reflection of the choices you make each and every day. If you choose to walk the stairs instead of taking the elevator, you are making a small daily choice which, over time, can make the difference between being fit and trim or […]


Overcoming Our Weaknesses

Why? Why do we spend so much time and effort in overcoming and improving the areas where we are the most weak? For some reason, starting with elementary school, we are directed toward “areas in need of improvement”. Job reviews, school report cards, and our mother-in-law, consistently zero in what we can’t do instead of […]


A Worn Sweater

“Think on these words. You were knitted together. You aren’t an accident. You weren’t mass-produced. You aren’t an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth by the Master Craftsman.” So says Max Lucado. He is comparing our lives to the gift of a hand made sweater he received […]


Spiritual Gifts

Boston Marathon ~ Is Anywhere Safe?

Boston Marathon 2013 2 Dead, Dozens injured Is any place safe anymore?   That’s the question on everyone’s mind. Spectators at a race, children in a classroom, movie goers at a theater; events we once attended without question are now causes for concern. Is any place safe? No Virginia, there is no safety.

I’m a good Christian, Where are my Blessings?

God promises blessings. Psalms 37 says He will give us the desires of our hearts. Heck, even many preachers tell us we should be living like royalty. If we would just claim it, all we dream of having can be ours. We’ve been led to believe a very one-sided gospel, one that essentially says once […]


Does Living in God’s will Guarantee Success?

This is part 2 of a series on setting godly goals and living God’s will. See part 1 here Just the other day I came across someone’s comment to a blog post –the writer wanted to live out God’s will for her life and she felt strongly that she was being called to work from […]


Is Goal Setting Godly?

This is one I struggle with. Typical goal setting advice encourages us to discover what we want for our lives, make a plan, and go for it. I’ve tried that route and when what I want doesn’t line up with what God has for me, even if I achieve the goal, it ends up being […]
