When Your Grief Is Almost More Than You Can Handle

When Your Grief Is Almost More Than You Can Handle

I remember well the day my husband, Danny, gave me my engagement ring. We were sitting on the couch beside the fireplace in my parents’ living room. Inside a little black velvet box was the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. It was exactly what I would have selected had I done so myself.

Get Your Praise On

Praise Defeats the Enemy I will declare Your name to my brethren; in the midst of the assembly I will praise You. — Psalm 22:22 NKJV One way to drive Satan to distraction, and to overcome him, is through praise of Jesus. Regardless of whether the enemy is a visible foe in front of us

Hope Was Born

They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. — Isaiah 35:10 NKJV The black, velvety sky was clear and studded with sparkling stars that had looked down on earth since the beginning of time. Shepherds appeared to be sitting idly by their flocks but in fact were keeping a sharp

All Eyes on Jesus

All Eyes on Jesus

Look at the Star They went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the Child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed— Matthew 2:9-10 Our senses are bombarded 24/7 by sounds and sights, especially during the Christmas

the Spirit

Deuteronomy 4:29 NKJV

Jesus Revealed in Us

In each of the situations above, God had given me a promise, and it was His promise that was the basis for my prayer… When I longed to get pregnant, but month after month did not, God promised me in 1 Samuel 1:17 that He would grant what I had asked of Him. In time, I not only gave birth to a son, but to two daughters.

Compelled to Pray

  Compelled by Problems in Our World Daniel’s prayer pulsates with this type of emotional conviction. His life for sixty-seven years had been difficult at best. As an old man, he lived through another violent regime change as the Medo-Persian Empire overthrew the Babylonians. His position was uncertain under the new ruler. He may have

Psalm 143:8

Prepared for Prayer

A Prepared Place for Prayer Daniel had a specific place designated for prayer: an upstairs room in his home to which he withdrew three times every day.1 His preparations may have been as simple as setting aside this particular place where he could be undistracted and undisturbed. I’m convinced we all need this kind of

Pleading with Confidence

Is faith a gift that some people have been given and others have not? No, faith is a choice. There’s an old story, a favorite of mine, about a veteran tightrope walker who, after demonstrating he could push a wheelbarrow filled with sand across Niagara Falls on a tightrope, asked the applauding crowd for a
