At times I think the world is spinning out of control. There are so many school shootings in America that while we are saddened and angered, we are no longer surprised. The fact that we aren’t surprised is tragic. We must not give in to evil. We must fall on our knees and pray. “We […]

It is an overused cliche, but overusing it doesn’t make it any less true—“God has a plan for our lives.” When we align the gifts He has given us with His will, good things happen. “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”(Proverbs 16:3) “To lose something in the will […]

It’s easy for us to get discouraged, to feel that nothing is going in the right direction. Our faith can get weak and we can feel distant from God. We must remember that He is always with is. Meditate on the following familiar scripture and ask God for an extra measure of faith: “Have I […]

This is the best advice I can give you; take a walk or go your bedroom and close the door. Turn your devices off and open your heart to just being alone with God. You may want to share with Him about something you are grateful for or something you need, or you may just […]

We all experience the fear of failure. We all need the security that is found in Christ alone. I love how the writer of Hebrews reminds us that we are “completely” His. “Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.”(Hebrews 7:25) […]

Recently, I read a quote by Max Lucado explaining the difference between mercy and grace:“Mercy gave the prodigal son a second chance. Grace gave him a feast.” Isn’t that good? Aren’t you thankful for God’s mercy and grace? “So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way […]

If we don’t become too self-absorbed, and if we make ourselves available, we can be an answer to someone’s prayer today. Each of us can encourage, provide a smile or perhaps pray for someone today. We need to pray this prayer from Isaiah 6:8, “Here I am Lord, send me.” “There is no one who […]

Steele Harmon is a treasure. He coached football at both the high school and college levels. He was a tough coach. But I don’t know anyone that has more love in his heart. He’s almost 89 years young, but he’s still quick to share a joke, a story, encouragement…and love. He’s one of the most […]

Between the ages of eight and twenty-four, there was seldom a summer day that I wasn’t playing catch with someone. Growing up, it was usually with my brother or a friend. Sometimes we would talk. Many times there was silence except for the ball popping the leather glove. We could communicate without talking. We would […]

John Wesley once said, “Though we cannot think alike may we not love alike?” As Christians we would serve better and be more respected if we could learn to stay away from people who spew hate which can lead to violence. Loving our neighbors everyday is winning every day. “The world does not understand theology […]
