Devotional

  It never fails.  As I engage in conversation with my children, they inevitably will ask me questions that I just don’t have the answers to.  It’s frustrating and even a little embarrassing.  As the adult in the conversation, I feel like I should be able to represent all parents and have a sufficient answer […]

    “Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves […]

I often wonder about the Samaritan woman who had the privilege of meeting Jesus at the well. What was she like before that day? I imagine she was beautiful; so beautiful that she stood out amongst her peers. Yet beneath the surface of her ravishing beauty, was a woman scorned and abhorred by those around […]

    The church has some problems.  No question about it.  I’ve been around the church most of my life.  Actually, all of my life would not be a stretch.  Interestingly enough, I’ve seen some of the best that the church has to offer and unfortunately, I’ve seen some of the worse that the church […]

    This week’s topic: The Fruit Of The Spirit Patience can be defined as consistency, waiting, endurance, perseverance, and not giving up. We have to be patient, especially with one another. Don’t give up on folks so quick, give them a little time. And we have to be patient with ourselves and what we […]

    The passages in Philippians 3: 7-14, are most meaningful for applying the principle of “resurrection power” in our lives as Christians. The significance of these verses pull into focus its relevance for understanding seasons of suffering that eventually culminate into victories. The subject is pertinent during this high holy season of celebrating the […]

When Charles Dickens penned “A Tale of Two Cities” and included the famous “It was the worst of times, it was the best of times” line, I am sure he had no idea he’d be describing my 2010 experience. Last year, was filled with amazing ‘highs’ and seemingly right after those moments, devastating ‘lows.’ And […]
