Every Step

From one man he made every nation of the human race to inhabit the entire earth, determining their set times and the fixed limits of the places where they would live.  --Acts 17:26 Paul’s visit and time in Athens was not by accident. He was there for a purpose and on...

An Amazing Promise

An Amazing Promise

The story of Noah and the flood is so commonplace to many of us that we lose the wonder and awe of this event. The entire earth was flooded and Noah and his family were in some contraption that no one had ever seen or heard of before. What if they run out of food?...

In the Ark

Waiting is my kryptonite! I am very vulnerable to impulsivity, recklessness, and discouragement when I do not have an obvious expiration date for my periods of waiting.   Yes. I have prayed daily about it, but we all know what happens when you pray for patience!  The...

Complete Obedience

Everything I know about Bible stories for kids I learned from Veggie Tales. Honestly, not everything, but I didn’t grow up going to Sunday School, so I have no emotional attachment or fond memories of flannel graphs, puppet shows, or whatever other culturally relevant...

Finding Favor

Finding Favor

“I don’t want to listen and obey!” I sat on a stool in front of a pint-sized sinner. His fists were clenched, and his face was grimaced in a very stubborn frown. He pushed the milk away like it was poison. I took a deep breath, and I looked down at him with eyes of...

  Have you ever considered how your friendships can be a witness to the gospel?   “...that they may be completely one, so that the world will know that you sent me...” (John 17:23)   A unified body of Christ is a testimony of the love God has for the world....

From the Beginning

From the Beginning

When we read Genesis 4:23 we see how, sadly, history repeated itself in a descendant of Cain. It broke my heart to read this. Humanity hadn’t existed for long and evil had already begun replicating itself in a family. But as I read verse 26, hope surged in my heart...

The Heart Behind It

Have you ever known a person who is really, really good at giving meaningful and intentional gifts to others? They are the ones who months ago heard you mention that you really loved a certain brand of coffee, or that you had seen a beautiful emerald green scarf at a...

The Reality of Jesus

The Reality of Jesus

I will admit that, at times, I get confused as to how something written so long ago could apply to my life today. However, I am excited to remind you (and myself) that we serve a God who is timeless and whose Word will never return to us void (Isaiah 55:11). When I...

What God Has Joined Together

Do you want to know a secret about my wedding? Most of the guests never knew this, but the beautiful music that was playing as they waited for the service to begin wasn’t from some carefully curated wedding playlist. Oh, it was a playlist, and we definitely took our...

True Freedom

I’ve had various jobs, some paid and some not. The strangest, but probably most fun paying job I ever had, was being a Living History Interpreter at a museum. For this job I dressed as and attempted to speak like a Georgian lady living in the year 1776! When we are...

This week my six-year-old asked me: “How big do you think the computer was that helped God make people?” It was an innocent question and a sweet teaching moment, but it made the contrast of these verses and the norm of our daily life so obvious. “The Lᴏʀᴅ God formed...

How the Imago Dei Changes Everything

I don’t know about you, but the last few years have been hard. Between living in a global pandemic, racial tensions, and seeing how divided our society is on almost every issue, I’ve grown tired and weary. Like many of you, I’ve lost friends and family members to an...

And Then God Created

And Then God Created

It wasn’t enough to give the earth light, to stretch out land and fill our sky with the sun, moon and stars… God wasn’t done yet.  In today’s reading in Genesis, so far God has:  Created light and changed the darkness on Day 1. Separated sky from water on Day 2....

The Third Day

The Third Day

We come to the third day of God's amazing work of creation. The world was not yet ready for humanity to live in it. There was air and there was light but there was no land and so God commanded the water to separate from the land, and it obeyed His voice.  He...

Meet Manoti – Love God Greatly Swahili

As a child, I was rushed to the hospital after I swallowed a coin and it got stuck in my throat. I was scheduled to have an operation the next day because, by the time I arrived at the hospital, the coin was stuck between my ribs. That same night, I woke up and felt...

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was without shape and empty, and darkness was over the surface of the watery deep, but the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the water. --Genesis 1:1-2   The book of Genesis is the book...

If I had tried to forgive him any sooner it would not have been genuine. It would have been a religious type of forgiveness where I knew it was the right thing to do, but deep down I would have been still holding on to the offense.    I told my counselor I was...

The Suffering of Christ

The Suffering of Christ

The fact that God didn’t rescue Jesus from the cross is one of the hardest truths to accept. Jesus willingly and obediently endured the unimaginable so we wouldn’t have to. There was no shortcut to the cross nor a dulling of the pain our Lord had to suffer.  The truth...
