Forever

"The LORD does not listen to the wicked,but he hears the prayers of those who do right. Good news makes you feel better. Your happiness will show in your eyes. If you listen to correction to improve your life, you will live among the wise. Those who refuse correction hate themselves, but those who accept correction gain understanding.

Fascination

2017-07-06T20:01:54-07:00

Someone said yesterday that having a child when you're older keeps you younger. I think my favorite part is being facinated with what facinates him. True when we live for others as well, though. "We who are strong in faith should help the weak with their weaknesses, and not please only ourselves. Let each

Homeless

2017-07-06T20:23:43-07:00

Les and I were originally talking about never being afraid that God would not provide a place, a home, a sense of stability as we trust in Him. He has and will always come through. Then it hit me. I have always had a sense of 'homelessness.' There has always been this sense of

Rocking the Baby

2017-07-06T20:08:43-07:00

Just read this quote as I compile my notes for tomorrow. "Who is getting more pleasure from this rocking, the baby or me?" - Nancy Thayer Mother's Day reminds me of a prayerful battle through which Jaclyn and I persevered to see God be faithful in the birth of the miraculous Max. We, Jaclyn

Ministry is Messy

2017-07-06T20:28:21-07:00

Second day going home smelling of alcohol and tobacco. Nate and I went to lunch at Jack in the Box and encountered a young man recently released from prison who was very inebriated and seemed to exhale the f-bomb. That was very eventful, resulting in my car needing to be very thoroughly cleaned last

Pray Without Words

2017-07-06T20:36:39-07:00

Brenton, we were just talking about this! This was from the intro to my devotions this morning. Great timing! "God Is for Me” You have recorded my troubles. You have kept a list of my tears. Psalm 56:8 God knows you. He has written your name on his hand and keeps a list of

Through His Word

2017-07-06T20:49:29-07:00

"The LORD was with Samuel as he grew up; he did not let any of Samuel’s messages fail to come true. Then all Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, knew Samuel was a true prophet of the LORD. And the LORD continued to show himself at Shiloh, and he showed himself to Samuel through his

Of Roots and a Rock

2017-07-06T21:11:52-07:00

“Be careful that no one fails to receive God's grace and begins to cause trouble among you. A person like that can ruin many of you.” - Hebrews 12:15 The King James states: “Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and

The Man I Might Have Been

2017-07-06T21:21:29-07:00

One of the things I love about Max is how much we look alike. There's something about imagining a little version of yourself running up to you and loving who you are as an adult. What does that look like for you? What if the child you were ran up to you today? Saw

I Wish You Knew Today

2017-07-06T21:26:16-07:00

"I wish you knew today what would bring you peace. But now it is hidden from you." - Luke 19:42 Jesus didn't just make this statement, He cried this statement. We do, too, don't we? We think we know, and then we know we don't. He knows, and since His resurrection, He's hiding nothing.
