Believe What He Says: Faith in the Midst of Chaos

I know. I’m late. Life blew up at the end of April, and the fallout has buried me. On the plus side, God is teaching me about faith. Here’s what I’m learning. 1. You either believe what God says—or not.  God either has sovereignty or not. My faith (or lack of it) will be reflected in…

A Tale of Two Choices: Faith or Sight

The leather thongs bit his flesh. Lot stole a quick look from his one good eye, the other swollen shut from a soldier’s fist. His girls huddled near their mother, tears streaking through dust cast by the frenzied ride. Warriors strutted past, stroking the cheeks of his daughters. They smirked at him, laughing as his…

Practice Your Faith

Have you given much thought to practicing your faith? I mean—the practice part.  As kids, we practiced a lot of stuff. Piano, soccer, multiplication tables.  But faith? Not so much.  Oh, we attended church each week, but that’s not the same thing. What if we practiced our faith the way we practiced our favorite extra-curricular…

Faith or Fear? You Choose

Faith or Fear? Two opposites compete for space. Remember when we could go to a store and shop? Numerous choices stretched before us. Seersucker. Denim. Silk. We chose what to wear.

A fiery chariot rumbled behind a pair of flaming steeds, burning an image in Elisha’s brain he would never forget as he watched Elijah depart. Depart, because, like Enoch, Elijah didn’t die. One minute, Elijah walked beside his successor. The…

Pass the Mustard (Seed)

Mustard. Sharp. Pungent. Tangy. I wasn’t a fan until I met my husband. He loves it, and now I do too. For me, a little mustard goes a long way, but God says that’s true of faith as well. In fact, a mustard seed portion of faith is enough to do the job. So, slap…

Capture the Moment

Memories. We do our best to capture the moment. Graduations. Weddings. Births. We collect programs, photos, and party favors. Momentos of milestones. Remembering is a good idea. God chose everything from feasts to memorials to help His kids remember. Remember what? His goodness. His faithfulness. His provision. Moses challenges us to remember, “Only be careful, and…

Believing: An Angelic Perspective

“While I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice.” (Daniel 9:21 NIV) “The angel answered, ‘I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you [Zechariah]…
