When Elijah needed to hear from the Lord, he didn’t hear from Him in the wind, fire or earthquake. He heard from Him in a whisper. Most of us are saying that our lives are calmer now. This is a good time to listen for the whisper from God that will bring peace, rest and […]

Be patient with me as I indulge in a bit of state pride this morning. I’m watching the sun rise over a ridge of green with white plank fences lining a pasture. After all, Daniel Boone said, “Heaven must be a Kentucky kind of place.” But, like all states, Kentucky isn’t perfect. We have poverty, […]

If we trust our feelings instead of God’s Word we will spend much time feeling alone, discouraged or anxious. Our circumstances change, but God’s love and faithfulness never change. We must trust God’s promises, not our feelings. This is what God shared with Isaiah and it’s true for all of us: “Though the mountains be […]

In a Zoom Bible Study with my coaching friends this morning, I asked this question: If your team had a one run lead in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and the opposing team had runners on 2nd and 3rd, who would you want a ground ball hit to? Who on your team […]
