Anxious?

A friend called me the morning after the rioting at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. He was so frantic and worked up that he kept interrupting me. I couldn’t seem to get more than two or three words out before he would begin ranting again. He was terrified that the entire country was going... Continue Reading →

Tomorrow

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭ESV‬‬) The word tomorrow has stirred up more excitement than a free trip to Disney Land and struck more fear in the hearts of mankind than a Freddy Krueger movie marathon. Tomorrow... Continue Reading →

“To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some.” 1 Corinthians 9:22 (ESV) When this pandemic started to dominate the news, I was quick to jump to conclusions regarding the seriousness of the virus.

Where Is God?

“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

When I am focused intently on my work, I get in a zone—when someone approaches me unnoticed I am likely... Continue Reading →

A Reminder in Troubled Times

“For in him we live, and move, and have our being…” (Acts 17:28a ESV). It's like an adventure novel. Covid-19, the Corona Virus, is spreading in all directions across the globe. Fear and widespread panic has engulfed our world. There's been a rush on supermarkets and hoarding has become almost comical. With all of the... Continue Reading →

I Am Convinced!

"But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me" (2 Timothy 1:12 ESV).  I've always had a special place in my heart for First and Second Timothy, as I share his name. I... Continue Reading →

A Very Good Friday

There was a restlessness in the crowd. In-between the awkward taunts and jeers the only sounds that could be heard were the labored attempts of the three men to draw a breath. The weight of their bodies pulling them down forced the air from their lungs as they hung by their arms. They were, in... Continue Reading →
