Way back when, when life was a lot simpler and my kids were still kids, I used to sell shoes. No, truthfully, I subscribed to one of those mail order shoe houses that gave you discounts on quality footwear if you sold so much to other people. I was able to move a pair or two but found out that selling your friends something that you wanted them to buy for your personal benefit could strain the…

Laughing At God or Laughing With Him

Sometimes, we read a promise of God given to us in the Scripture and just laugh in a scoffing, unbelieving way at what God has said. The longer we are believers, the more likely it is that we will find ourselves having laughed at promises of God that we believed were too good to be true. When God moves us to repent through His kind provision or deliverance, we come to laugh with Him instead of…

Learning To Be The Passenger, Again.

I have gotten to a point in my walk with God where it's not about whether or not I trust Him. I know I don't trust him with a lot of things, it's about finding out why I don't?

It still surprises me when I catch myself 'grabbing the wheel' away from God. All of a sudden I'm this little person in the passenger's seat reaching across and grabbing the wheel trying to drive. As common sense sets…

Leave the Floor to the Worms

'The spider skillfully grasps with its hands, and it is in king's palaces.' e God, and seek His comfort instead. Leave the floor to the worms.

Lego Jesus

It's Christmas time again. A time when we see decorations of every size shape and color. Not only fun holiday items such as Santa and Christmas trees, but even nativity scenes get tweaked a bit.

Most of us have a little porcelain or wooden nativity set we put in a place of honor each year. The kids may have their own set, made of stuffed people and animals, resin, or even plastic ones modeled…

Lego my Limitations

I'm always amazed by what can be made from Legos. Every time I visit a Lego store I wonder what type of person has the imagination to come up with this stuff - and the patience to assemble it!

On my most recent foray past a Lego store my brain was assaulted with a giant dragon in the lake out front - we're talking 20 feet tall and more than 30 feet long; a family out walking a menagerie of dogs;…

Lessons from Joseph

One night a man lay sleeping peacefully and hopefully, settled in how his life would unfold. Nothing specatcular, mostly ordinary with a future of creating things with his hands. It would be a good living, maybe not rich, but good, with his yound wife by his side. That life suddenly shattered around him like over-fired pottery, and then the future looked bleak, indeed. His wife to be was found with…

Lessons in Perseverance

The Bible gives us some excellent counsel (as we would expect) as to how we can persevere when difficulty and temptation come. God's desire is that we run the race of faith fervently, diligently, and to the finish, so let's look at an instance in Moses' life to glean some direction as to how we can better persevere in our own lives.

, that is, our humanness, is weak, but Christ in us is strong.…

Lessons learned?
"The fact is," said Rev. Haggard in an Associated Press interview, "I am guilty of sexual immorality. And I take responsibility for the entire problem." He wrote that in his letter to his congregation, "I am a deceiver and a liar. There's a part of my life that is so repulsive and dark that I have been warring against it for all my adult life." Adultery is wrong. Sexual immorality is wrong. Absolutely,…
Let freedom ring

I do not know who was the first to say, 'Freedom isn't free.' The sentiment is certainly true. Our men and women who have given their lives for our freedom are being honored tomorrow. Actually, those who have served in our Armed Forces...

I can hardly read the stories of some of these men who fought for us, without tears streaming down my face.

I wonder sometimes, did they know?
