Why So Cast Down? Hope In God!

 “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God” (42:5, 11; 43:5). The psalmist is not naïve or overly optimistic when he says this. He knows, from experience, and truly believes that God is faithful. […]

Excel at Giving

What does it mean to give beyond our ability? It means pushing our giving past the point where the figures add up. It means giving when the bottom line says we can’t.

Jerusalem March Madness

Jerusalem March Madness

We watch as Jesus marches into Jerusalem on a thrilling and unpredictable ride. Every opponent he faces is going to test him and try to defeat him.

Ask for God’s Help

Ask for God's Help

Some days it’s tough to pray. Some days we’re too tired, too worn out to pray. Or the words just won’t come. Or we’re angry or upset with God, and we don’t want to pray. Or all we can muster is a one-word prayer: Help! The story of Jonah is the story of a God-fearing […]

The Whole World in His Hands

The Whole World in His Hands

Lord knows that there are so many struggles and crises in our lives that we sometimes feel that nobody has the world in-hand, nobody is at the wheel steering the ship. We have so many questions that we often seem to be wandering in circles. But the Lord knows us, too, and says to us, […]

When Failure IS an Option

When Failure IS an Option

In the Garden of Eden, failure was an option. And we can be thankful for that. Adam and Eve flunked their test, but their failure taught them and teaches us today to trust God’s word and live as children of God.

The Shepherd and the Circle

The Shepherd and the Circle

Through all of the difficult and disturbing changes of life, we are cared for by a changeless God. Although we face threats to our physical, emotional and spiritual health, we have a God at the center of our lives who gives us the assurance that ” goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days […]

The 70 Minute Miracle

The 70 Minute Miracle

We cannot control the weather. All we can do is talk about it when there is nothing else to talk about. But there is One who commands the wind and rebukes the waves. The One who turned water into wine also turned the Sea of Galilee into a sea of glass. The One who created […]
