Keep Going Even When Your World is Crashing

1

  Life: It has a way of stepping on itself.  When we are busy doing good and godly things the evil intentions of our seen and unseen enemies will get in the way. I often wish I could stop the world and just face the issues in front of me, but life doesn't work that way. Most often we have to keep...

0

REMEMBERING COLUMBINE It has been twenty years since the April 20, 1999 shooting at Columbine, yet the memories I carry and the spiritual lessons learned are still very present. "THERE HAS BEEN A SHOOTING AT COLUMBINE..." That day was an idle Tuesday and the first warm day of spring in Colorado. I was sitting in a high school class against my own...

Will it be a good day or a bad day?

0

Within the first few minutes of waking up, we determine the mindset we will have for the day. If we do not choose it, someone or something else will quickly choose it for us. If we choose to believe it will be a good day, we will see the first struggles of the day as no big deal. If we choose to...

The Perils of Being a Perfectionist

1

I am a perfectionist with an imperfect life.  Since I was a child, I have desired to do many things perfectly, at least according to my standards. This is not true in all areas of my life. This is only true in the areas I care about the most; writing is one of those areas. When I write, I long...

Why We Should Highlight Our Bibles

0

There is never a dull moment with my Grandpa.  He lives near Milwaukee, Wisconsin and it doesn’t matter if the weather is freezing, he has always made it a point when I visit to go outside for an adventure. One particular winter he asked me to go on a hike. I’ll be honest — hiking in the freezing cold weather didn’t...

What to Say at a Funeral to Make Christ Known

1

Attending a funeral for a friend is hard. Speaking at it is even harder. This weekend I received an email from a man in our church who was flying to Minneapolis this coming week. He planned to get together with his friend while he was in town, but the man died over the weekend. Now instead of sharing a...

What God Showed Us as We Welcomed Our 5th Child Into the World

There are few days in life that we remember until we die. Yesterday was one of those days for Molly and me. We welcomed our fifth child into the world, who we have named, Charles Joshua (aka "Charlie"). After being admitted to the hospital on Friday night, Molly labored faithfully and patiently, and he was born at 4:40 PM on Saturday....

Three Ways We Hide From God (and Others) and Why We Must Stop

0

  Let’s have a show of hands—who has had a “naked-in-public” dream? Come on, admit it. I bet just about everyone has, including me. You know the one: You show up for a big presentation at work or school, or you’re riding a bicycle through rush hour or working the first day of a new job, and you suddenly realize everyone...

Making Quiet Time with God Relevant to Today

1
quiet-time-with-god

Having a quiet time with God should not be irrelevant to your daily life. Often, we talk about our “Meeting with God” or “Quite time” as if it is unrelated to the rest of the busy day we are facing. We speak of it as reading, learning, or doing something altogether different than what would be pertinent to our...

Are You Underestimating What God Can Do in Your Life? [sermon]

0

The Gospel of Jesus Christ acknowledges both the validity of our felt needs and the supremacy of God’s purposes. Because the Gospel is predicated on the trustworthiness of God to accomplish His ultimate good in and through us, there are times where our needs will appear to be subordinated to God’s plan. In these instances, we can be assured...
