Biblical Wisdom

Sometimes the answers we seek to life’s troubles are in the Bible. Can I make a difference? Does God care? Am I good enough?Yes!

The Search for Perfection

Last week, I wrote about how it was still unseasonably hot here in Georgia. It’s October and we were still in the eighties. Well, we had some rain move through and it was followed by a cold front. Last night, our temps dipped into the forties and today we topped out in the sixties. It … Continue reading »

Remembering to Seek Him

A couple of weeks ago, I had to run an errand for work. That errand took me through our tiny downtown where traffic backs up like it does in a huge metropolis. When I finally got my turn at the stoplight, a big eighteen wheeler was on the other side. Of course, I needed to … Continue reading »

A Call to Collective Prayer

Last week I sat with my eyes glued to my computer screen, scrolling through pictures of the devastation left in Texas by Hurricane Harvey. I mourned for the victims. I prayed for them and I was incredibly moved by all of the kindness and compassion that has poured out all over the country. While our … Continue reading »

Wisdom from Paul

My pastor is doing a series over the next few months on the Paul’s letters to the Romans. Apparently, this single book has inspired many Christian leaders to do great things, including John Wesley and Martin Luther. He started this week’s sermon on how the church during Paul’s day was divided up into two groups. … Continue reading »

A Reminder to Pray

On a recent mission trip that my family attended, I found myself sidelined with an injury. As I sat down, annoyed at my misfortune, I was reminded that I had also been sidelined with an injury, on my very first day, on my very first trip, three years before. I had been picking up shingles … Continue reading »

Building Strong Faith

Last Sunday, our pastor spoke of the trials that had befallen a woman who was seeking to answer her calling to the ministry. The more she pursued her calling, the rougher her life had become. I have also heard him speak of his own early beginnings in the ministry where he loaded up a U-haul … Continue reading »

Hearing and Acting

I recently came across a passage in Matthew 7:24-27. It’s often called, “The Wise and Foolish Builders.” It’s a familiar story for me, one I learned in Sunday school as a child. I think there may even have been visual aids. Jesus tells the story of a wise man and a foolish man. He says … Continue reading »

Fishing Encouragement

Sometimes we wonder if God can do big things through us. We reason that we are not great speakers, or great at memorizing scripture, or even strong enough in our faith. There are times when we don’t even feel like we are very good people. But, those are the times when Jesus can really step … Continue reading »

Surviving the Winds

I was recently reading the account of Jesus walking on water, found in Mark, Chapter 6:45-52. Jesus had just fed the five thousand. He sent the disciples off in a boat and He went up on a mountainside to pray. I always find it interesting that Jesus saw the importance of quiet time alone to … Continue reading »

Living Easter Everyday

As I sit writing this, on the Monday after Easter, I find myself drawn back to Saturday. I think that often, as Christians who live on the Easter Sunday side of the cross, we often forget about the weight of that Saturday. I keep thinking about all of the emotions that must have been flying … Continue reading »
