A Holy Aloofness

“Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the sky: They don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. [...]

The Lion Roars, and We Are Free

Let me take you back to Narnia for a second. One of the children from earth, the sons and daughters of Adam, is a traitor. He has aligned himself with the White Witch, and though he has been returned to his brother and sisters, she now has a claim on his life. We pick it [...]

Finding the Source of Discontentment

Find the source. It’s a good practice in most area of life. If you have water in your basement, don’t just clean up the water. Find the source of where it’s coming in. If you have ants in your kitchen, don’t just spray the ants. Find the source of where they’re gaining access. If you [...]

There is a Greater Victory Than a Change in Circumstance

There are those times when you pray, and then you pray again, and then you pray again. And nothing happens. It feels like those prayers you lift up about your health, your children, your church – they hit the ceiling and then fall back to the ground. There is no measurable change in your life [...]

This. Is. The. Day.

“This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). Sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? But take a look at your schedule. Take a look at your agenda. Take a look at the host of things that simply must be done this day, consider how many of them [...]

The Formula for Endurance

One of my favorite all time movies is the original Rocky. Long before Rocky fought the Cold War on behalf of the good ole US of A, he was a near illiterate leg-breaker in Philly who just happened to be picked out of a hat by the reigning champion of the world Apollo Creed. Apollo [...]
