Dare to Hope

I don’t write here frequently anymore, but I found six POWERFUL words in the Bible this morning that I had to share. But first, this: He has made me grind my teeth on gravel. He has rolled me in the dust. Peace has been stripped away, and I have forgotten what prosperity is. I cry […]

Life Happens Here

Imagine this (if you can): You’ve just been driven from your homeland – from the country and the way of life that you know and love. There’s no way to feel but robbed and defeated. Now you’re stuck living with “the enemy” – in captivity – for 70 years. It’s a recipe for misery. How could you go […]

Verse for the Day: Isaiah 43:16

I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea.(Isaiah 43:16 – New Living Translation) I'm praying for the proverbial sea to be parted today. Whether God does or doesn't, it's good to be reminded that He can. If He doesn't, still I trust Him. Our God […]

An Opportunity for Joy

Something to think about: "Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy." – James 1:2 (New Living Translation) The version of the Bible I was reading offline – also New Living Translation, but apparently a different edition – replaces "consider" with "let," which for some reason strikes […]

O Come All Ye Faithful

Several weeks ago, I was refreshed, revived, invigorated – pick a word – when John Fischer spoke at our church's men's retreat. I've been receiving John's "Catch of the Day" emails since then, and I really appreciate his ministry. One of his recent writings seemed to fit well with both the Christmas season and the […]
