I wonder how many have fallen into the mindset that Peter was stepping into that day.  That day that the Lord had made breakfast for him and his friends.  That day that the Lord questioned him of his love for Him.  That day that his calling and life plan were laid out...

One word is resounding to me this morning:  Obedience.   

The illustration that is on my heart is that of the story of the fall of Jericho.  The Israelites had just crossed the Jordan River and stepped into the Promised Land.  (To be honest, I had not regarded...

I kind of stopped wanting to call determined decisions at the beginning of the year "New Year's resolutions," because that seemed to make them doomed to failure.  (Trust me, I realize that the failure has nothing to do with what they are called, but it rests squarely o...

I am drawn this morning to what the apostle Paul said about love...or rather the lack of it.  

"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and under...

There is a verse that I have heard quoted for as long as I can remember, yet the context of this verse is rarely shared along with it.  It was spoken by Moses to the tribes who wanted to settle on the east side of the Jordan River.

First of all:  Merry Christmas!  

We typically hear and quote Scriptures from Isaiah in connection with this wonderful time of year.  Unto us a Son is given, and unto us a Child is born.  He shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, a...

Dear Insecurity,

There is a haunting ability that you seem to possess that angers me.  You linger around the corners, watching to make sure I feel uncertain of who I am...unsafe in who I am.  I just want you to know that I am calling you out today.  Not just for myself,...
