Sowing in Tears

The pain was almost more than he could bear. He had never realized that a broken heart could hurt so terribly, but he couldn’t just sit down and cry. It was planting season. So he took his bag of seed and went to the field. But there was no joy in his work. He didn’t Continue Reading…

In the Midst of Your Pain, God Wants to Use You

We who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake… (Can You tell me why this must be, Lord?) that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. (Thank You for Your prompt answer.) 2 Corinthians 4:11 I wonder. For those who give God glory and praise and Continue Reading…

A Troubled Soul

Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, “Father, save Me from this hour”? But for this purpose I came to this hour. John 12:27 The hour had come. The culmination of His purpose here on earth; the culmination of His ministry, of His relationships as He had known them–walking the dusty Continue Reading…

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…

When Anger Overwhelms

God knows that confrontations and unpleasant circumstances are going to be a regular part of our lives.

Tremble, and do not sin; meditate in your heart upon your Continue Reading…

Our Children are God’s Children

Lord, I come to You today to renew our covenant with regard to my beloved sons. The sons You gave me for my earthly family, but who are Yours . . . eternally. Your sons. Your family. I relinquished all rights to them . . . gave them to You (Scriptures 1, 2) and, because 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?
