The Value of God’s Word

Just before a platoon of soldiers crossed a minefield they received an intelligence report mapping out the precise location of every mine. They made good use of that information! Lots of people think God’s Word is a list of do’s and don’ts’rules to make people act good in lieu of having a good time. But Continue Reading…

The Lion or the Lamb

I remember a story told by Dwight Edwards in his book Revolution Within. He said to imagine that you are at the zoo in the farm animal pavilion. You reach over to pet a soft wooly lamb, and it looks up at you and licks your hand. “Oh how nice,” you think. As you leave, Continue Reading…

Settle Down in Christ

“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalms 46:10 NASB I don’t know about you, but I can easily become overwhelmed with the burdens of life, the various responsibilities on my plate, and the sheer volume of activity on my Continue Reading…

My Amazing Morning with Jesus

Personal Testimony time comes when God reveals Himself in a real and personal way. This occurred anew for me Friday March 9, 2012. I pray He will speak to you as I seek to give Him glory for manifesting Himself to me in what I experienced as, “My Amazing Morning with Jesus.” I usually take Continue Reading…

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.

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…

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…
