Why, God?

For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.    1 Corinthians 1:25 (ESV) Joni Eareckson Tada wrote, “Wisdom is trusting God, not asking ‘Why, God?’.  Throughout her lifetime one could argue that Joni has many reasons to ask “Why, God?”, but God has reminded her that she needs to trust God and His ways, not her ways.  Joni has overcome a diving accident that left her a quadriplegic, overcome many health…

A Tiny Spark…

I was rather disgruntled when I came home after a long day of work last week to find that our air conditioner was no longer performing its singular purpose of keeping our house cool. Fearing the worst, I began bemoaning the amount of money that I was about to part with in order to restore cool air to my house. After some investigation I noticed that my condenser unit was completely frozen over. No matter how hard the fan blew,…

Voices!

Voices! In scripture we see where many people had heard voices, some where God’s voice and some where not. Jesus talks about us hearing his voice and following him in John 10:1-5. What are the voices we hear and what do we follow? Again in Psalms 1:1-6 he makes a comparison to a man who walks after the counsel of Godly wisdom and a man who walks after the counsel of sinners or unrighteous counsel. Today we hear a lot…

Watchfulness

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be, Matthew 24: 37-39. In the days and years before the…

Anxiety

​ “Historians will probably call our era ‘The age of anxiety’.” Anxiety is the natural result when our hopes are centered in anything short of God and his will for us.” – Billy Graham.  Billy Graham wrote this in 1965 and over 50 years later this is still an accurate description of this present era. The news that we are bombarded with daily is not encouraging.  Our world is in chaos and evil abounds. For some, this causes fear and…

Set An Example

​  Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12 (ESV) It is unclear just how old Timothy was when Paul wrote these words to him, but we clearly see that he was young enough to be considered youth.  This particular verse has been a challenge to me throughout my life, because here we see some clear commands.  Though this was written…

The Mystery!

​ “A real Christian is an odd number anyway. He feels supreme love for One whom he has never seen, talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see, expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another, empties himself in order to be full, admits he is wrong so he can be declared right, goes down in order to get up, is strong when he is weakest, richest when he is poorest, and happiest when he feels worst.…

The Best Is Yet To Come

​​ The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.  Deuteronomy 33:27a (ESV)  One could argue that the best day is each day that God gives us, but I also believe that the best is yet to come.  As we look back on our lives in the recent past, or years ago, we must be careful to consider and acknowledge the greatness of God and the faithfulness, mercy, grace and love He has shown us.  Looking…

PRESENCE FOCUS OR PROBLEM FOCUS?

If you are listening to the news at all these days, it’s easy to become focused on what the future may look like.  There are many predictions being made of what the future may hold for us.  Some of which may be accurate.  If we look too long into the future, our focus can easily become a focus on the problem which then allows fear and worry to take root in our hearts.  However, if we keep our focus on…
