Give Grace

Get Right with God: Give Grace “Get right with God!” I remember hearing that in so many sermons growing up. The topics of sin and repentance were the repeating headlines while the topics of love and grace came less often and with a whole lot less enthusiasm. I will say right out of the starting […]

“Hallelujah” from the Midst of Brokenness

Hallelujah, initially understood in my forming lexicon to mean “Hooray!” was sung with gusto often accompanied by guitar and clapping. Ha-la-la-la-la-la-la-le-lu-jah came wafting out the bus windows as we wound our way up the mountain to summer camp, stretching the potent Hebrew holy word around our happy bursts of prepubescent excitement.

Labor Day and Entitlement Checks

There is a subculture in our society that celebrates gaming the system. Where there used to be a bit of shame at having to “accept charity” there is now pride in getting one over on the government. Very little thought is given to improving the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country.

ReDefining “Happy New Year”

A better approach is to acknowledge that we will be smacked with sadness, challenges and terrifying prospects again this year. Hope that didn’t burst your Happy New Year bubble, but as much as we may “wish for a great year” these things are simply a part of the package of life. It would be ridiculous (if not delusional) to actually begin 2015 believing or hoping otherwise.

Getting Unstuck – Jamie George

Unfortunately, in my willingness to sacrifice for others I am not being a steward of myself. And if truly honest, not really sacrificing. I am doing the EASIER and LAZY thing. Serving myself takes a great deal of effort.

New Cancer Answers

“A high proportion of our patients come to us in the later stages of cancer because they learn about us after not having success with their current treatment,” Contreras said. “Our survival rate is decidedly higher, sometimes twice as high as those calculated by the National Cancer Institute from U.S. cancer statistics.” Their message is clear: you have more options and it’s never too late. With one in three people likely to be impacted by cancer in their lifetime, everyone should listen to this interview!

Getting Intimately Connected to God

Listen to God’s heart and let Him fill you with His love. Sit in His love and enjoy His presence. By sitting in His presence continually His Spirit will revitalize you to overcome every obstacle of life. Too many times we look at the logic of Jesus and forget the heart.

Grieving with Grace

It happened last week as I stared at the last of Anna’s birthday roses falling droopy and brown. She would’ve been nine-years-old three weeks ago, and I stared at the remnant of this milestone-wilting, dying flowers, and my heart began to wilt as well.

Biblical and Scientific Perspective on How to Raise Boys

Everywhere we turn, people are wondering how to protect a child’s self-esteem. In few areas today is this question more prevalent than in our cultural conversations about how to help boys grow up to be loving, wise, and successful men. In our new book, RAISING BOYS BY DESIGN, we share both scientific and Biblical research that calls on parents, teachers, and caregivers to distinguish between “short term self-esteem” and “long-term self-esteem.”

Running on Empty – Refueling Your Tank

The tank-drainers include nagging questions like, “Am I where I’m supposed to be?” “Am I making a difference?” “Should I quit because I’m not getting anywhere?” “Should I change course, slow down or speed up?” Another fuel sucker is the lack of confirmation and affirmation. We do our very best and hear crickets in response. We shout, “Was that OK, God?” and hear only echoes of our question. . . . → Read More: Running on Empty – Refueling Your Tank . . . → Read More: Running on Empty – Refueling Your Tank

Kitty Chappell

Finally I relented—a little. “Lord, I want to obey You, but I have a problem—I don’t want to forgive my father. Will You at least help by putting a desire in my heart to want to forgive him?” That became my daily prayer. Amazingly, it happened! . . . → Read More: Kitty Chappell . . . → Read More: Kitty Chappell
