Knowing Something vs. Learning Something

Sometimes I rely on what someone has taught me about God instead of coming to know Him and His ways for myself. And when what I’ve been taught is not the full truth about a matter, I tend to doubt God instead of doubting what I’ve learned about Him. For instance, I’ve heard preachers and Continue Reading…

The Love of God

My precious grandson’s spent the night tonight. God has used these little boys to teach me more about the love of God than just about anything I’ve experienced in my life. Being the survivor of abuse, one of the repercussions of my experiences, left me having trouble giving or receiving love for many years. As Continue Reading…

When God Calls, You Can

Have you noticed that we intellectually know some things, but we believe others because we have experienced them? Prior to becoming a writer, I intellectually knew that God was sovereign over my career, but after I started down the writing path, any intellectual thoughts I had about His sovereignty were replaced by belief because He Continue Reading…

The Walking Dead

Zombies. Half-dead, half-alive. Not fully conscious. They are numb to the life around them, and their only purpose is to make it through the day. In Atlanta, we’re zombie-crazy since the hit TV show, The Walking Dead, is filmed here. I know several people who have donned their best zombie costumes and auditioned to be Continue Reading…

Jesus Is in Your Boat

A couple weeks ago, I met a good friend for breakfast to catch up on family, work, church, and how God is working in our lives. During our time together, he asked, “How was last year for you? How would you describe 2013?” I must admit my response surprised me. I described the year as Continue Reading…

Grandma’s Funeral

We’re lost. I think we took a wrong turn off I-95. We’re now in Norfolk instead of Richmond. But we should be there soon!” the hearse driver assured my mother on the phone. My mom hung up the phone, looked at her watch, and sighed, “I think we’re in for a long wait.” We were Continue Reading…

Remember Rest?

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  – Matthew 11:28-30 NIV Continue Reading…

Life’s Raging Waters

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.” – Isaiah 43:2a Last month I had the opportunity to travel to Brazil to visit a good friend. While I was there, we took a day trip to see Iguazu Falls. Continue Reading…

Finding the Gear for God’s Plan

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” — Jeremiah. 29:11 (NIV) We had a serious climb on a recent trip up mount Haleakala (which translates “House of the Sun”), and an even tougher Continue Reading…

My Struggle to Trust God

Do you ever wonder if God is everything He claims to be? The great struggle in my life has been trusting God, which is not on the Christian community’s list of tolerated sins. Questioning God is ungracious. I have sung “Trust and Obey” with gusto, but when I get away from the crowd, lay aside Continue Reading…
