How Thick is the Ice?

Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else, and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my Continue Reading…

Discipline

All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness. Hebrews 12:11 ALL discipline [discipline of every kind] for the MOMENT [when it is happening] seems NOT to be joyful [not a happy thing, to say Continue Reading…

The Storm

“… Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” And they launched out. Luke 8:22 They were doing exactly what Jesus told them to do; and yet, by following His instructions, they set sail into a night that would be filled with terror. And where was He? He was with them, of Continue Reading…

When Anger Overwhelms

God knows that confrontations and unpleasant circumstances are going to be a regular part of our lives. But, as any loving authority will do, He gives us fair warning — and then, through the Psalmist, gives us instructions on how to handle emotional crises. Tremble, and do not sin; meditate in your heart upon your Continue Reading…

God’s Timing is Perfect

I don’t understand, God. I have prayed and prayed, and nothing has changed. I believe my prayers are within the scope of Your will . . . I’m not asking for anything amiss. What’s wrong, God? These things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be Continue Reading…

Grace and Peace

MY NEEDS: There are two things I need in my life right now. Only two. With these two things I will get through these difficult circumstances with at least a measure of victory. Need #1: The ability to meet this situation head-on with some wisdom, some strength, some composure. I feel so completely inadequate, so Continue Reading…

His One Message

John 14:20 There are so many worlds open to us when were little. The “dog days” of August can send us to lush jungles, fighting mosquitoes and headhunters; the narrow confines of our postage-stamp backyard can engulf all of Alaska, and our self-image becomes whatever we want our self-image to become. When do we lose Continue Reading…

Like Peter

And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. Mark 8:31 Peter: What? Rejected? You? Such foolishness! The people love you! When was it that you fed Continue Reading…
