I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 1:19-20) Easter week is a special time to focus on Christ. It is an opportunity to reflect on His sacrifice, and remember His pain, suffering, and death. But even more so, it is a wonderful time to rejoice over His … [Read more...] about Resurrection Power
"Good times", "That's good", "It's all good"... we use the word "good" in many, many ways. We say a movie was good, our kids are good, we fight the good fight, and we even say God is good! So, what is "good" really? It is the opposite of bad; the absence of evil. So yes, most definitely God is good! But...He is so much more! God is my Creator, Sustainer, Provider, Savior...my absolute everything. Yes, He is good, but oh, He is so much more! God is Love. God loves us with a deeper, … [Read more...] about God is So Much More than “Good”
Jesus died on "Good" Friday. He suffered in pain and anguish as He was beaten, tortured, and crucified. His family and friends watched in horror as He died an excruciating death while others mocked and spit at Him. So how can we possibly call it "good"? It is the most horrific day in history when the Savior was brutally killed because of our sin! If the story ended on Friday, there would be nothing "good" about it. It would be the saddest, most depressing story of … [Read more...] about Why is Good Friday “Good”?
Jesus called His first disciples simply by saying, "Come, follow Me." He found them, loved and accepted them right where they were, and offered them a new life, a new beginning with Him. Before they could even understand the magnitude of their decision, they knew they should accept...and follow Jesus. Jesus offers the same exciting, life-changing adventure to us. He simply and lovingly extends His hand and says, "Come, follow Me." We don't have to meet any requirements … [Read more...] about Jesus Changes Everything
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. (Zechariah 9:9) The Sunday before Easter, Palm Sunday. Jesus has spent the last three years teaching, preaching and healing throughout the area, and today, He rides into Jerusalem to make known … [Read more...] about On a Donkey
Today, we have a choice. Will we grow closer to God? Or will we drift away in the busyness of life? Every new day ushers in fresh opportunity. I can choose to grow closer to God, or I can allow myself to fall away from God...It's up to me to choose. And falling away doesn't always happen in big leaps, but often in small, unnoticed, unintentional slips. Seemingly unimportant decisions that don't line up with God's Word, and move me in the wrong direction. Let … [Read more...] about A Daily Choice
***(Reposted from May, 2011. Such a sweet memory from a painful time that was filled with God's hope, peace, and love!) It was Garrett's second to last game of the season and he came up to bat with bases loaded. He got a great hit, right over the 2nd baseman's head into the outfield. The centerfielder threw it in to the infield who threw it to the catcher just a second or two too late- Garrett slid and was safe for a grandslam!! The whole team went crazy and hugged him and James … [Read more...] about God’s Perfect Timing and a Grandslam
Peace What does it mean to you? Do you enjoy it or are you currently longing for it? Often, the answer depends on our understanding of peace. We tend to confuse peace with comfort or the absence of problems. But this is false peace. It isn't real and it never lasts. This world is full of scary situations, loss, grief, and pain--tragedies to deal with and trials to face. But even in the midst of our pain, our peace can be constant, complete, and unending. But how? … [Read more...] about Peace… No Matter What!
