It’s Never Too Late: Never Give Up

It’s Never Too Late: Never Give Up

Lord, You have told me that if I have a need I should just ask it of You. There is never too great a task for You. So, Lord, now I’m asking You. — “All That I Need” by Kathie Lee Gifford With time and distance, and hopefully a dash of wisdom along the way,

Don’t let self-doubt sideline you from being used by God in ways you never could have imagined! Instead of asking Why me? start asking Why not me?

So, Why Not You?

“Now go! I will help you speak, and I will teach you what to say.” But Moses said, “Please, Lord, send someone else.” — Exodus 4:11-13, NCV Moses was known and protected by God even before the day his mother set her infant son adrift in a basket on the Nile River. Miriam, his sister

Finding a Way Through the Dark

Finding a Way Through the Dark

Have you ever tried to walk around your house in the dark? With arms stretched out wide we feel our way around, running into dressers, patting walls with our hands, feeling for the familiar to find our way. It’s hard to see where we’re going without the light. It’s painful to run into things we

Relentless: A Prison

A God who is with you in your doubt ~ John Flavel, Late minister of the Gospel at Dartmouth It was my third trip to the airport in four days. And I had at least a half dozen more coming up in the days to follow. The day after traveling home from a conference and

Somehow no suffering you go through is suffering Jesus will not endure in order to save you.

In Between Despair and Joy

So far as we know, there has only been one day in the last two thousand years when literally not one person in the world believed Jesus was alive. On Saturday morning after Jesus’ crucifixion, the disciples wake after not having slept for two days. The city that was screaming for blood the day before is quiet. Crowds

And one wrapped in complete humility. Recently, I spoke at a Christian gathering that was multigenerational, multiracial,

Jesus Can Handle Your Doubt

Thomas’ Doubt I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all Your works and consider what Your hands have done. I spread out my hands to You; I thirst for You like a parched land. Answer me quickly, LORD; my spirit fails. Do not hide Your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit. Let

Pray for Greater Love

One of the most productive things we can do to pursue a life beyond amazing is to read Paul’s prayers for the churches he was involved with. He didn’t pray for greater attendance, bigger offerings, or even more people becoming Christians. When we examine his prayers, we discover something far more challenging. For instance, to

Flaming Torches and Living Promises

Doubt. He’s a nosy neighbor. He’s an unwanted visitor. He’s an obnoxious guest. Just when you were all prepared for a weekend of relaxation… just when you pulled off your work clothes and climbed into your Bermuda shorts… just when you unfolded the lawn chair and sat down with a magazine and a glass of
