We all need a rest at times from the routine. Take this opportunity

This is ‘raw talent’–nothing synthetic here.

What amazes me about Tom Thum is that his vocal cords can take the thrashing they must endure performance after performance.

Powerful proof Jesus rose when He said He would

I have included the story I read this morning below.  This story is from Luke 24 and it is 3 days after Jesus was buried in a borrowed tomb.

If you are like, me you read the Bible and most of the words you and I read seem insignificant and it could be with this passage.

What do I see here in Luke 24? Despondent disciples of Jesus are walking along, probably sad and not speaking many words as they walk.  As I read this set of verses this morning, I got to verse 21 and realized I wanted to shake Cleopas’ hand when I see him in heaven.  He is a man after my heart.  “I believe but then it seems not to have come true.” More

Ann Voskamp has a way of calling what God has put into us out of us and I am a man and she still has this effect. Ladies, listen, she has something to say. Find a time when you have 20 minutes and listen to a broken but grateful woman of God who will call out of you something more.

Blessings on you Ann!

Here is a good documentary on what is happening now in America!

Internet Child Sex Trafficking in America

The wrong view of sex is trashing God’s view of masculinity and God’s view of femininity.

The Truth about Lucie Jones

I received good news on Lucie Jones today. She has grown up level headed even as she became a model after a great performance on X Factor (Great Britian).

Well, I really hadn’t followed her because my data is from 2012 but it was nice to listen to the wisdom in her thoughts about stardom and what life offers. I believe she went through a period where she really did let the lights of the stage get to her. Maybe the rejection by Simon Cowell in 2011 made her grow up quicker. What ever the reason it is refreshing to see the young lady mature to sound reasoning. More

This is Paul David Tripp, a great author. I love his writings. I have never seen him speak. Please get past his dress and listen to his heart. He says profound things here. Listen…

No one is more influential in your life than you are. Because no one talks to you more than you do.

Whose Fault is Our Fear?

6 Comments

Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin Hebrews 3: 12-13

…callousness happens (in our hearts) when we continue to indulge in anxiety, which always springs from the belief that God isn’t able to care for us properly or that what he provides isn’t enough for us. Such a belief is really unbelief.

What are we to do if we detect hardness in our hearts? We…rightly identify our anxiety as sin.” We acknowledge our anxiety and consciously name it what it is, ‘unbelief.’ “Unbelief underscores every fear and every act of sin we commit. Unbelief is the assertion in our hearts, even if it doesn’t appear to be so, that God cannot be trusted.

Unbelief is the source of all our fears, because unbelief, taking up residence in our minds and hearts, cast aspersions on the good character of God. When we doubt God’s kind intentions, we will certainly go astray in our hearts and eventually become hardened to the comfort he would bring us. We can turn away from the lie of unbelief right now and put our faith in our good Father.

–Lydia Brownback

Whether I want to admit it or not. The source of my conflict, despair, and heart pain is my unbelief in the goodness of God–not believing His trustworthiness. He is trustworthy and His promises to us are true. I must cling to that truth, then, I will be at rest no matter what comes.
