God’s comfort

The Lord is good. At all times. He cannot be anything less than good because it is not just something He does, or an attitude He has adopted. He IS good; just as you are male or female. It is something you are, not a role you play or a job you do. In the […]

When God doesn’t answer prayers

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that when God answers prayers sometimes He says yes, sometimes no and sometimes the answer is “not now” But we’ve missed the most common answer of all. Often when we pray, God’s response is “come to me.” “But God” we whine, “that’s not an answer!” Yet it is the […]

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 […]

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.

Finding God among the dirty dishes

Fairly regularly I’ve heard people preach on doing even mundane tasks to the glory of God. They quote from 1 Corinthians 10:31 “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” It has always left me with the impression there must be some way to work […]

Do You Feel Like a Failure?

My sweet friend wrote to me and confessed she feels she is failing at every aspect of her life. How often we all feel that way! There are days when our life feels wasted and fruitless, we fail to live up to our own expectations. In truth, nothing I do in and of my self […]

Where is God?

Why are so many Christians struggling with addictions, sins, depression, heartache, grief and loss? I know people are on their knees almost every day crying out to God saying “please help me overcome this, show me the way through, take this from me Lord.” Where is God? Where are the blessings of His promises? I […]
