WHAT IS YOUR FINISH LINE?

Usually, we visualize THE FINISH LINE as a place, a strip of paint across the track, a physical destination we strive to reach and crossover. For our purposes, THE FINISH LINE represents a delineation between our mortal lives here on earth and our eternal lives. In John 14, Jesus told the disciples he was going [...]

A—Z, THE BLESSINGS OF LONG LIFE

Have you noticed how often we Christians adopt our culture’s despair over aging? To verify the reality of ageism, go shopping for a birthday card! God’s viewpoint is strangely different. Scripture refers to LONG LIFE as a reward, a gift, and a blessing. To prompt our thankfulness as the birthdays accumulate, I’ve identified 26 blessings [...]

CAN YOU HEAR THE CALL TO PRAYER?

Whatever our particular hardship or concern in this season, prayer is our means of accessing God. How can we not wonder about the forces bombarding our nation? Is COVID 19 being used and manipulated for political purposes—domestic and/or foreign? Is our sin reaping its own reward, or is our nation under attack by the enemy [...]

ARE YOU ON MISSION?

Sadly, COVID 19 has afflicted some of us, but our nation’s response has impacted all of us. Schedules and activities, commerce and social interactions have all been radically altered. Thankfully, the Lord Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. (Hebrews 13:8) How might we, like Jesus, remain faithful and constant? If you think [...]

RESPONSES TO RESURRECTION

LAZZIE CAT Our family was once the recipient of a rescued cat. Her startle reflex validated the report that she had been abused, but most of the time she just slept. She was a beautiful Calico—white with large areas of black interspersed with orange all over her body. As pretty as she was, [...]

DOES YOUR FAMILY KNOW . . . PART I

If you become ill, DOES YOUR FAMILY KNOW . . .  who is in charge of your medical decisions? If not, this may be the ideal time to hold the family meeting you’ve been postponing—electronically.  We may be practicing isolation, but we are not without the means to communicate. All of us are currently concerned about [...]

WHAT CAN WE DO?

IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19, What CAN we do? Like many of you, I am counted among the vulnerable, but it is God who has numbered our days—no one else. Remember our childhood fire drills? We were carefully taught not to panic. Which is most destructive?  COVID-19 or the fear of it? In our youth, there may or may [...]

DOES YOUR FAMILY KNOW . . . PART II

DOES YOUR FAMILY KNOW . . . that they are loved, forgiven and blessed with prayer? Are there letters tucked away among your important papers that you have carefully written to your special people? We do have the power to bless people. There are stories that only we know. There are words that only we can [...]

THE END OF A THING

Solomon tells us that the end of a thing is better than its beginning (Ecclesiastes 7:8). New endeavors can be so exciting and growth producing, this statement is initially surprising. Can he possibly be correct? We love babies and puppies, but we do rejoice when they are potty-trained! The first day of school, weddings, and [...]

WHAT IS YOUR STATUS IN GOD’S ARMY?

I once asked the Lord about His army. He answered me on a sunny day in October, 1997 in Washington, DC. When He spoke, I was standing by the Washington Monument looking back toward the Lincoln Memorial. The National Mall was filled to overflowing with more than a million men, both young and old. None [...]
