He is so powerful, but His heart is so tender. This is what I’ve come to discover about Him over the years. The character Aslan, in ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ series, is such a good description of our Lord. He is the Lion of Judah, but He is almost always referred to as the Slain […]

We live in a fallen world, and failure, disappointment, and pain will unfortunately be part of our journey. If you’ve been listening to the news then you know a man named Felix Baumgartner skydived from the edge of outer space, breaking the sound barrier. Foe 4 1/2 minutes he went into a head over heels […]

Rev. 4:1-2  After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.”  Immediately I was in the Spirit; and […]

Thank God for faith. Sometimes we get frustrated with the idea of walking by faith because it seems so kind of other worldly and hard to grasp. I for one am glad it’s otherworldly because there are times when everything in this world falls apart. Just when we think things have settled down and have […]

Jesus said in Mark 5 “Fear not; only believe.” The problem that we often have in learning to walk in faith is that fear is so real. You can feel fea, and it can be such a powerful feel that it is so overwhelming, that it snuffs out all other realities. Faith, on the other […]

Jeremiah 15:18-19 (NASB) 18 Why has my pain been perpetual And my wound incurable, refusing to be healed? Will You indeed be to me like a deceptive stream With water that is unreliable? 19 Therefore, thus says the LORD, “If you return, then I will restore you— Before Me you will stand; And if you […]

1 Kings 17:8-16 Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying, “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and stay there; behold, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.” So he arose and went to Zarephath, and when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow […]
