After hearing an interesting radio sermon on the subject of worry, I did some searching in my Bible. I was specifically looking for where scripture touches on worry as a sin. I couldn't find any passages specific to that. (If you can think of any, please share!) However, if sin is disobeying God, then worrying goes against Jesus' command in Matthew 6:34: Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. and Paul's words in Philippians 3:6: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with … [Read More...]

The Saturday Morning Review–“Faith, Hope, Love, and Deployment”

During her husband David's last deployment to Afghanistan, Heather and he realized the need for a devotional that would not only draw them closer to the Lord, but also to each other while separated. They envisioned a combination of scripture memorization, stories of hope and struggles, a revitalization of the lost art of letter writing, and practical ideas for keeping connected during deployment. Not finding such a book, they began writing Faith, Hope, Love, & Deployment. Sadly, three months after beginning the project, David was killed in action. My heart broke when I read this … [Read More...]

So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, 'My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.' So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:7-9 (NLT) I've been thinking a lot about these verses recently. (I'm not ready to share the details of why, but maybe someday.) What I've been considering, though, is the dichotomy between the desire … [Read More...]

2015 “Projects”

No, that doesn't mean there will be 2,015 projects I will be working on. It means there are a few things I'm getting involved in during 2015. In years past I've tried resolutions, goals, and "One Word" and I'm terrible about following through with what I start. These "projects" I've chosen this year have built-in accountability, which I need. 31 Days to Pray for Your Spouse Challenge Ashley Pichea has written a book by the same name and she's hosting a challenge this month to read through the book and pray for your spouse based on each day's focus. She sends out an encouraging reminder … [Read More...]

Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow-- not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love. Romans 8:35, 37-38 (NLT)     … [Read More...]
