Today, I had a memory just pop into my conscious thoughts. Why do memories of long-past mistakes, failures, and sins pop up in our minds? The memory may be something as small as forgetting to shake someone’s hand to something that was very ungodly. I know many Christians struggle with memories. I’m not referring to …

Worry and Fear

A Fish Story I once was fishing with another guy when his hook snagged me while casting. It stuck right in me, and pain exploded when he dropped his pole to “help” me. As I face today, I have some needs and many desires. All of these have snagged me like fishing hooks. Worry About …

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11 God’s compassion is boundless. As I grow older, my brain becomes quieter. Yes, for now, my …

Would We Council God?

Murals When I was a young man, I had a good friend that was a naturally gifted artist. His specialty was painting murals. I never ceased to be amazed when he’d start sketching out a picture on a roll of butcher block paper that ran the length of a room. Perhaps the fascinating aspect of …

Foolish Confidence

When I was a kid, one of my uncles had a large farm in central Indiana. I always enjoyed our visits there, partly because of the terrain. When we reached the turn-off to his home, we were confronted by a one-car (wagon) wide path that was quite long. The fun part was that the path …

Even a Good Report Needs Prayer

Today I was reminded of the account of Hezekiah, the king of Judah. For me, it’s one of the most encouraging events in the Old Testament. 2 Kings 19 Being Told That You’re Junior Varsity The Assyrians, led by Sennacherib, were preparing to attack Jerusalem. The enemy arrived at Jerusalem after having a winning season …

You have kept count of my tossings;    put my tears in your bottle.    Are they not in your book? Psalm 56:8 In this verse, the word translated as “tossings” can also be translated as “wanderings.” Whether we toss at night in bed because of troubles or wander aimlessly, God cares. He keeps a memory of these times. …

Finding Our Assigned Seats – Part 2

Jesus wanted to teach His disciples an important principle (principle like gravity – what goes up must come down). So, Jesus sat down – I think He sat on the ground, but that’s just me. I’m sure that when Jesus sat down, all of His disciples immediately sat down. By sitting down, Jesus’ body language …

Eastern Gate 32 And they went to a place called Gethsemane. And he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” Mark 14:32 The many of us, there’s a joy that stirs within us when we see our “family home.” Our father’s home is deeply rooted within us. Every time I read Mark 14:32 …

Finding Our Assigned Seats – Part 1

I often think about Jesus’ parable about the king that gave a great wedding feast (Matthew 22:1–14). He had sent invitations to people he thought were his friends, but they all begged off; none even showed imagination in their excuses! In anger, the king had the false friends executed. Then the king had his servant …
