Truthful Terrariums

Twentieth century technology has opened access roads to real time events of people everywhere. Our world has evolved into a technological dinner theater of sorts, where we are all actors in our stories and sometimes in the stories of others. This never-before-snapshot of the world in which we live is fascinatingly instant in its delivery […]

What if We Really Believed?

We talk the talk.  Don’t we? We have the good scriptures memorized. “I can do all things…” “For God so loved the world…” “Lord, if it is your will take this cup…” “Our Father who art…” “Though I walk through the valley of death….” Sunday morning, we will be up bright and early. We will […]

8 Things I’ve Learned about Refugees

This summer I have the privilege of interning at World Relief, in DuPage/Aurora, Illinois. I’m working with the new arrivals and volunteer coordinators to get a closer look into what the refugee resettlement process looks like and how World Relief is doing it as a Christian non-profit. Suffice to say, the experience is doing more […]

Time To Speak Up

I’ve been out of my teens now for many years. But I admit there are still days when I feel like the proverbial teenager buckling under peer pressure. Sometimes I find myself shying away from controversial subjects – remaining silent when given the opportunity to speak. Why? Fear. Of. Rejection. Keeping the peace Remember Pilate? In […]

I’ll take instant maturity, please

Grinning with pleasure, I watched my newly planted butterfly garden. The bold yellow of the yarrow and the vibrant orange of the blanket flowers were a great beginning, but I longed for all the green to turn to blossoms. I rushed out each morning, excited to see new blossoms, but nothing seemed to change. Gardening […]

Turning What We Think About Submission Right Side Up, Part 4

I have told you now before it happens so that when it does happen you may believe. John 14:29 Jesus repeatedly declares “so that you may believe.” He continually reminds us to submit. We choose to follow over and over again. We choose to believe Him over and over. We choose to trust Him over […]

When God sends people.

God sends people. Yes, He does. Years ago, during a particularly trying time in my life, I was desperate for answers. I had been praying and asking God for a miracle, or at least for clear direction. I imagined letters falling from heaven and lightning bolts to come out of the sky in answer to […]

The Big Wait

  Sisters…in the great casting call of life, all of us are waiting for something: a new thing, good news, a reward, a beginning or an end. And, in the wait, are we intent on becoming, or beholding? Sigh. It’s a heavy question. Before I met my husband, I was a lady in waiting. Then, […]

5 Things You Need to Know About Spiritual Attack

The scene is puzzling and eye opening. The angels of the Lord came to present themselves before the Throne, and Satan came with them. He was there with a purpose and God knew it. He had been “roaming about on the earth.” He had seen Job and his devotion to Yahweh and became convinced that […]

Sinners in Need of a Savior

The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery.  In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”  They were using this […]

Are you ready for action?

Prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:13, NASB) Peter is my favorite. I know, we should not have favorites. But alas, I have one. Of all the apostles, Peter is my favorite. […]
