If you’re drowning and a lifeguard yells to you, “Hang in there! I believe you’re going to make it!” What benefit is that to you if they don’t throw you a life preserver?
Under normal circumstances, our youth is a time of vibrancy and energy. As the colorful flowers bloom in the spring, full of life and drenched with promise, so are we when we’re in the prime of our lives. It’s a time when we are most zealous, eager, and ready to take on the world.
Leaving God to go back to the pleasures of this world would be the same as leaving a table spread with a warm feast for a cold turkey sandwich. Doing so would leave us feeling unfulfilled, unsatisfied, and downright foolish. Still, sometimes when we see the “beautiful” and “successful” people of the world, we can be […]
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed to God three times to make sure there was no way to save us other than with His death on the cross. Just like any of us, He didn’t really want to suffer. Still, His prayers all ended with an affirmation that He was ready and willing to […]
As Christians, we humble ourselves and submit to the Almighty God. By submitting to His authority and following His commandments, we receive grace to overcome temptation, strength to endure trouble, and power to resist the devil and make him flee. Being humble doesn’t come natural to us and it isn’t always easy, but it is […]
A Prayer for Freedom “Raise your hand if you currently suffer from depression.” This was the instruction that the pastor gave as he stood in front of the congregation. The sanctuary grew quiet. Hands began to gradually rise and people started looking around. Some of those with their hand in the air looked a bit […]
When I think about who I am in comparison to who He is, it overwhelms me. I’m so undeserving of His love and kindness, yet He pours them onto me freely. He will withhold no good thing from me. At times I haven’t had much, yet I’ve never been in lack. As an earthly father to […]
We don’t “have” time for anything, we cannot “make” time for something, neither do we need to “find” time because it’s not hidden. It’s right here. We exist in it. Sure, these are just sayings we use, but bear with me here as I try to make a point. Time is not something that belongs to us, and it’s not something we have the power to manufacture whenever we feel like we need a little more of it.
As I lay in bed that night, somewhere in-between sleep and awake, I murmured these words out loud: “I’m not much. All I have is a willing heart, but I offer it to you.” Immediately afterward I fell asleep. The next day at church, the pastor got up to speak and He preached a whole […]
Have there been times when you’ve said, or heard someone else solemnly say something like: “Well, I guess all we can do now is trust God,” or “All we can do now is pray?” A lot of times when faced with a difficult problem, we turn to God only after we’ve tried everything in our […]
How many times have you gone online to check out the reviews of something that you were interested in, only to find the remarks so horrendous and frightening that it made you forget the idea altogether? Most likely, there have been a few times. Other people’s thoughts and conclusions seem to have a large amount […]
We love food. This can make fasting difficult for us, especially if we’re not used to it. However, it’s worth the sacrifice because spending time in prayer and fasting can be very rewarding. Through our time of abstinence from eating (or another type of sacrifice), doors can be opened, healing can rain down from every […]
