Okay. I’m going to do it again. So I will just tell you up front – we are going to stay in Judges 6 this week. There is so much to learn and so little time, but here we go! I’m going to draw out four principles necessary to understand in order to change the …

Does it ever feel like events or circumstances in your life are just random fragments with you as the only thing they have in common? And then on closer inspection, a connection begins to come into focus between seemingly happenstance events. How can this be? Tonight my daughter said, “Sometimes what we perceive others think …

Today I will worship at home. There is nothing better than gathering together with others to give praise to our God! Reading: Psalm 147

Home! That is where I am headed today. There is a level of anticipation and excitement that I can’t quite contain. Even though it is cold and wintry in Indiana and I am leaving behind the sunshine and 80’s of Florida, I love what I will find – family, home, church. What are you anticipating …

Comparison kills YOU. It is a cancerous growth that metastasizes from “I don’t have enough.” to “I am not enough.” Slowly we begin to believe that we are a mistake, that we will never be enough. The slide downward is slow and slippery; the mud and mire of comparison pull deeper and deeper into the …

Comparison is a lack of regard for others and their journeys. Loving others is impossible if you see the people around you as a threat rather than people with potential.

After all, it looks like everyone’s life but mine is neatly organized and moving in a really beautiful direction. I easily overlook any …

Another opportunity to worship in community. People are scary. I agree. So wherever you are today, embrace life and faith. Meet Jesus on your recliner, in your pew, or at the beach. He is everywhere present. There is no where we can go that he is not already been. Reading: Psalm 139

Saturday already again! Since I am currently hanging out in the sunny south, I will enjoy the 70 degree weather and maybe make a trip to the beach. What does our day look like? Do you have expectations for what you might accomplish on the weekend? Maybe it’s your day off and you have a …

Reading: Psalm 62:5-8 This is the last day we will read this psalm but there is one more really important principle I want to draw from these verses. In verse 5, I find these words: “for my hope is in him.”  The same concept is repeated in verse 6 with these words: “He ALONE is my rock and my salvation.” Again in verse 7 it says, “My …
