Magnets and Vacuum Cleaners

This morning I asked the Lord for a verse reference.

Exodus 20:15 – Thou shalt not steal (KJV).

Really? Have I stolen something lately?

Distracted by Family

Last night I participated in a dynamic weekly prayer call. An area of great need is that prodigals return home. 

Some of the prayer requests contained specifics about how to trust God, and with not always knowing what to pray. Many of us are fatigued with the wait - and the weight - of unanswered prayers.

You Are Amazing God

The past few months have been a wrestling match of sorts – me with myself, and me with God. I complained, judged, whined, and lived in fear, with small moments of faith and joy in between. 
In the midst of the junk, somehow I managed to reach up for Him, ask for prayer, and obey Him even when I didn’t feel like it.
The result?

Expect the Impossible

Today I read a much-loved Bible story about Jesus walking on the water.

Overcoming Condemnation

I've been reading some of my old journals, and right now I'm in 2005. I read through several entries where I wrote about struggles I conquered but appear to have come back. Ten years later, and I still have some of the same issues!

Going After the One

This morning on the way home from church, I drove by the mostly devoured remains of a fawn. I only know it was a fawn because I saw it pre-devastation. I would have included a picture; but I’m not a pre-med student who enjoys cadaver labs, and I figured you might not be either.

I believe God has a message for someone.

Fitness Friday: What Does It Mean To Be Spiritually Fit?

Does spiritual fitness mean you:

  • obey everything the Lord tells you to do?
  • always read the Bible and pray every day without fail?
  • never say anything negative, never complain, and never gossip?
