Step Back

The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. – Psalm 28:7 I’ve never been praised for my athletic accomplishments.

Making Deals with God

Gene McNaughton didn’t have time for God; he was too busy enjoying life. Successful in his work, respected in his community, in good health—why should he need God? And today he was doing what he loved to do more than anything else—bird hunting. It was cold, and that Arkansas air was biting—exhilarating. A new dog Continue Reading…

A Choice

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Galatians 2:20 I was chairman of the prayer Continue Reading…

A Life Rerouted (Because of Obedience)

Winning Your Wife With Kindness

Too often men have the attitude, “Male redbirds are prettier than female redbirds; I’m bigger than you are; I can throw a rock straighter than you can; I know which way is north; therefore, you ought to recognize me as your authority.” That goes over like a lead balloon with wives, and no small wonder!

Now, which of these two was most successful? Actually, both! God’s way of measuring success is not based on the results we may Continue Reading…

The Straight Path

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5,6 Nowhere does the text imply that straight is synonymous with easy or expeditious. Curvy roads are curvy because they avoid the more challenging, more Continue Reading…
