How Did We Get Here?…June 18th

driving

Driving down the street with your mind on that meeting; your spouse’s doctor appointment and the ‘conversation’ you had with the kids earlier, did you notice the stop sign? Of course I did, I stopped didn’t I…didn’t I? After leaving the house you drove those familiar streets to your next stop, but have you ever …

Red-Faced or Repentant?…Mar. 29th

Cookie-Jar

It’s a reassuring thing when you hear someone apologize for doing wrong. We call that ‘repentance.’ But not everyone is sorry for sinning, some are just sorry for getting caught sinning. We used to say, “He was caught with his hand in the cookie jar.” And that usually meant punishment. But are we really sorry …

Redeeming God’s Time…Jan. 18th

redeem God's time

Redemption is an interesting word. By definition it means the “deliverance or rescue” of something. But what is worthy of redeeming? We sing ‘redeemed how I love to proclaim it,’ ‘let the redeemed of the Lord say so,’ and ‘…for on the holy cross hast Thou the world from sin redeemed.’ We know, in Christ, …

Memory: Friend or Foe?…Jan. 11th

Memories

Memories…flood the corners of my mind, or at least how the song goes. But do our memories serve to inspire us or haunt us? Age and sickness have a way of displacing some of our fondest memories. That is discouraging when we think of all the good times we’ve had, but perhaps that’s not such …

In the Waiting Room…Dec. 21st

Blessed Assurance

For many of us, the image is clear in our minds. Daddy is nervously pacing (or sitting) in the waiting room while the doctor and nurses tend to the expecting mother. At the same time, others can be found in this same room waiting ‘on pins and needles’ for the news that their loved one …

The Awesome Power of Negative Fellowship…Sept. 14th

Standing on the Promises

An ‘oxymoron’ is a statement that places side by side two elements that seem to be in contradiction of each other. Words and ideals that just don’t seem to match. Phrases like a dark light, a mournful optimist, deafening silence, or jumbo shrimp are referred to as an oxymoron. But consider something awesome (inspiring and …

The Mystery of Forgiveness…July 6th

faith is the victory

According to the scriptures, if someone sins against me I should forgive him 490 times! At least as a kid that’s what I thought when I read the words of Jesus in Matthew chapter 18. Peter asked Him, “…how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times? But …

Who’s In Control?…April 27th

arm wrestling...control

What does it mean to be ‘in control?’ Do you have to have authority and power to maintain control over someone or something? Many will assume you have to be stronger, more talented, or meaner, or smarter to be in control. And though those traits might prove beneficial, is that all it takes? Perhaps it’s …
