Remembering September 11, 2001

Think about it…several hijackers in a few planes (with outside help) changed the course of millions of people. Here is small list of things that come to my mind now Thousands in NY were killed, injured or had their lives turned upside down due to the towers collapsing The US took advantage of the situation and invaded Afghanistan…

A One Woman Man

A One Woman Man

Bruce Lengeman has wrote an excellent article explaining what is needed for a man to have a healthy relationship with his wife. It blessed me so I am passing it along. Ruthie: A notable incident happened around the second year of our marriage. Bruce was a youth leader, helping to host a weekend youth retreat along with a few other leaders from our church. Our baby girl and I went along. Many of the teens were being touched by God….

Take Every Thought Captive

Take Every Thought Captive

It continually amazes me how much our thoughts/emotions have an affect on our physical body. Here is an article that shows the connection between our thoughts and sickness & disease. The article ends with this thought: An undisciplined mind is one filled with a continuous stream of thoughts, worries, fears and distorted perceptions, all of which trigger degenerative processes in the mind and body.

Are You God?

Are You God?

Here is a story that I read this morning. It is a powerful reminder that we are called to represent who God is. How can we do that today? This story is told from many years past by Dr. John Maxwell, but the message is so poignant and says so much it will always be a timeless story. Shortly after the end of World War II, Europe was in ruins. Perhaps the saddest sight was the little orphaned children, starving…

Aligning our Lives with God’s Priorities

“Christians should regularly examine our hearts to ensure we are focusing on things with real eternal value; so that we will be investing our time, energy and resources on the things that matter to the Lord Jesus Christ, who declared, “God knows your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed among men is detestable in the sight of God” (Luke 16:15). Because it’s so easy to lose focus, we ought to pray fervently, asking the Lord to open our eyes…

Are You Adicted to Busy?

I heard an interview just the other evening with Brady Boyd, who wrote a book called, Addicted to Busy: Recovery for the Rushed Soul. I didn’t read the book, but the interview was very good! I found the book on Amazon if you are interested in learning more.

What is Grace?

What is Grace?

Grace is a word that we hear used in a few songs. We may hear the phrase, “Have some grace with the person,” but what does the word, “grace” mean? Does it mean to have mercy? Not really. According to the definition in Strong’s dictionary, it can be defined several ways: G5485 1. graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act 2.

His Grace is Enough

His Grace is Enough

The phrase, “Your grace is enough -for me” is ringing in me since I heard the song yesterday morning. Do I really believe that? I know it is true though. God’s grace, his enabling power, is more than enough for me to fulfill His will in my life. It is enough so that I can have peace in my heart in the middle of any situation. God’s grace is available, but am I receiving it? Help me Father, to know…
