Faith Bigger Than A Bread Box

I have read many times about Jesus’ miracles of feeding thousands of people with only a small supply of food. In my mind, I always filed these events with Jesus’ other miracles. He healed people, He fed people, and all along the way, He demonstrated His power as the Son of God. I didn’t spend... Continue Reading →

Selfish Supplications

As I was praying the other morning, it occurred to me that my bedroom window faces east. I thought of the prophet Daniel, who “got down on his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks,” doing so from “his house where he had windows in his upper chamber open toward Jerusalem.” (Daniel...

Choosing To Be Chosen

This week I have been feeling overwhelmed, but not in a bad way. I have been feeling joyful and humbled because of God’s goodness to me. Last weekend, as I charged through some items that had been lingering on my to-do list, I was writing letters to the girls that I sponsor through Compassion International.... Continue Reading →

The description of the “Excellent Wife” is often held up as the Biblical standard for a godly woman. It seems to require a husband and children in order to meet... Continue Reading →

Gifts of Peace and Rest

Often, I look at my life and can’t see any evidence that I am growing in faith. It is when I’m not focused on it, that God chooses to give me a glimpse of the work He is doing in me. In the midst of my anxiety, stress, and depression, this past month, I had... Continue Reading →

A Grinch Like Me

It’s not the “Holiday Season;” it’s me. I’m depressed, that is all there is to it. It seems so cliched to be depressed at this time of year. There is nothing I hate worse than being a statistic. Of course, I struggle with depression year-round, but for the past month, I’ve felt like I am... Continue Reading →
