Growing in Faith

Start the day out right

In the morning, while it was still very dark, Jesus got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. (Mark 1:35) Henri Nouwen said, “It makes no sense to preach the Gospel, when I have allowed no time for my own conversation.” I have read time and time again about the importance of eating breakfast. Many of us seem satisfied…



It was great! The ultimate shortcut when I was a student took me and my two girl friends right past a bakery on the way to class. We’d stop for our favorite muffins or chocolate-iced long johns, then leisurely finish the walk to our junior high school. Yummy, fun, and we were oh-so-cool in our bell bottom jeans. Until. . .one day when…


What Bothers You?

I have had a quote rolling around in my mind for some time now that I think is unusually profound but I forgot who said it.  A  good friend of our ministry whose blog I receive regularly blogged about it this morning and I wanted to pass it along. Thanks Charlotte! This is good stuff! http://www.morningreflection.blogspot.com/2013/10/bothered.html…


Storm be still!

On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, ‘Let us go across to the other side.’ And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. But he was in the stern, asleep on…


Your Father Has Written You a Blank Check

Your Heavenly Father has written you a blank check. Just as salvation from sin and death was paid in full at Calvary, the provision for you to carry out any work he has led you in, will be paid for in full as well. It is a sure thing. You can count on it. Or (no pun intended), “You can take it to the bank!” The “God who cannot…


Can’t someone else do that, God?

One of my pet peeves is those rogue shopping carts just end up hanging out in the wild open parking lots. It’s not like they just take off with a mind of their own you know on some escape route that leads them to freedom. No….someone left them there, with no thought of walking them to their proper return stalls. Does this bother…


Hope when you feel alone

Have you ever felt abandoned? As you face a difficult time in life, you feel like no one is beside you. In that moment, even God can feel far away, and you struggle with loneliness like you’ve never felt.  I know there have been times recently where I’ve felt that way, and I’ve wondered what God’s plan is…


Prayer in a word: intimacy

Here’s a typical scenario. The morning alarm goes off—for the third time. You know that you can’t hit the snooze alarm again. You are already late. Something in your morning routine will have to go. Although you know you shouldn’t, you decide that you just don’t have time for your morning devotion of prayer and Bible…



Got pain? Get over it!

2 years ago, the front tire of my bike, met the space between a railroad track and the road. A half second later, my hands met the pavement. I broke both of them… in a few different places. That moment of physical pain provided lessons (always cross the tracks at a 90 degree angle… and unclip from my pedals). And it left scars that will…


Seeing the beauty in nothing

I have to admit that I am not that perfect, crafty Mom, who’s kids make works of art for the grandparents every holiday or just for some weekend fun.  My home will never appear in a decorating magazine, unless it’s showing what NOT to do. So, recently when I walked into one of these paint-it-yourself pottery places,…
