The Unwanted Gift

By on July 18, 2016
Only one year ago, my world as I had known it for almost forty-nine years took a sudden and dramatic turn. Only hours earlier, Jeannie had looked up at me from her pillow and whispered the last six words she would speak in this life, “Love you! Love you! Love you! I had gathered her in my arms and said, “Jeannie! Run to Jesus!” Now, she had done just that!

Happy Birthday USA…And Jeannie!

By on July 3, 2016
I love this season of the year! For one thing, I possess a shamelessly patriotic spirit. Early in life I was saturated with a good dose of American history. We are not a perfect nation by a long shot, but we were founded on some bedrock principles that, if practiced, will stand the test of time.

Will You Have Enough?

By on June 25, 2016
It seems that about anything causes people to fret over the future, especially when it comes to their finances. Britain’s reported exit from the EU has generated an unending spate of news analysts and their foreboding prognostications. Since the Lord specifically commands us not to fret, there must be a better approach for His people than to worry and be anxious.

Drowning?

By on June 12, 2016
Ever get the sensation that you are drowning in a sea of circumstances beyond your control with no hope of getting back on top? You’re definitely not alone! In fact, if you listen carefully you’ll be able to hear a chorus of “Amens!” Here’s some advice from a fellow-pilgrim that you just might want to ponder over the next few days. That fellow-pilgrim is none other than Simon Peter himself. And the event? Of course, I’m referring to Peter’s journey toward Jesus on a turbulent Sea of Galilee, recorded in Matthew 14:22-33. (You might just want to read that account first, and then come back to this blog). The good news is that you are not alone.
