New Wine

The Law of Process says that leadership develops daily, not in a day. This truth is sometimes hard for us to swallow because we are accustomed to instant gratification in our everyday lives. We eat fast food, we have instant answers to questions with our friend Siri, and we can shop at the click of […]

Can You Imagine?

“Cheer up, don’t be afraid. For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will give you victory. He will rejoice over you in great gladness; he will love you and not accuse you.” Is that a joyous choir I hear? No, it is the Lord himself […]

What Are You Wearing?

Monday mornings are notorious for slow starts.  At least they are at my house. This week was no different.  Matt and I had an amazing plan to get up early and go to the gym.  I set our alarm for 5:00 with no intention of snoozing…for me this is a hard choice I have to […]

So Say the Joyologists

When the righteous see God in action they’ll laugh, they’ll sing, they’ll laugh and sing for joy. — Psalm 68:3 MSG According to some joyologists (uh-huh, joyologists—those given to the promotion of joy), you can lose weight if you guffaw daily. So does this mean we can titter till our tummies tuck? Or better yet, […]

Your Harvest is Waiting

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.  Luke 10:2 Have you ever wondered, “What am I called to do?” Many individuals spend so much time wondering and waiting for God […]

God Does Not Always Choose Our First Choice

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” —1 Samuel 16:7 When the Prophet Samuel saw Eliab the eldest son […]

May Bear Fruit

As we enter into May, I have been anticipating all the beauty that spring brings. Hearing the birds sing their joyful tunes. The colors of spring brighten the earth as the trees begin to bud, the grass turns from brown to green and the flowers begin to bloom. I have always lived in the Midwest […]

There is no problem or issue you’re facing today that God cannot break through and perform a miracle. If you need a miracle, take heart. To see God break through in our lives today, the principles […]

Finding Your Authentic Self in the Face of Devastation

Several of you have asked about my adventures in calving during the past couple of weeks. I still have four cows that are holding out for better weather or a really inconvenient day, I suppose. Klinger, a little bull calf that has worn a hat and a coat, has tried to die on several occasions. […]

That’ll Leave a Mark

I’m a preacher’s kid—not just some preacher from some church on some corner somewhere, but a preacher and church that is literally known around the globe. And when I was a wee one, I had a knack for making sure other people knew it. My life-long childhood friends tell me that whenever I wanted to […]

Your Destiny

You are God’s child. He saw you, picked you, and placed you. “You did not choose me; I chose you” (John 15:16 NCV). Before you are a butcher, baker, or cabinetmaker, male or female, Asian or black, you are God’s child. Replacement or fill-in? Hardly. You are His first choice. Such isn’t always the case […]

Glorify God in the Mundane

In a million unique ways—as we change diapers, eat dinner, return e-mails, pay the bills—we are to be evidence of God. Jesus factored in the mundane. . . . Embrace the common: a Sunday afternoon watching sports, Starbucks with a friend, cooking dinner for a neighbor, taking the dog for a walk, heading to a job that is […]

Soft Heart, Thick Skin

There I was standing on the playground, underneath the monkey bars, 10 years old, two long braids hanging down my back.  This image is burned into my brain as one of the very first times my feelings were truly hurt. I was standing there with two other girls waiting to find out which one of […]

Patience: The Glory in Waiting

“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” Romans 5:3–5 In our microwave, instant-messaging, drive-through-window, cell-phone world, […]

1 CORINTHIANS: A Challenge

Apparently Corinth was the kind of city that would feel right at home in the twenty-first century.  It was full of people who love the “good” life of evil vices.  Into this decadence the apostle Paul sends a letter full of instruction and warning to Christian believers.  He challenges them to godliness of character, true […]

In the Midst of Dirty Dishes

Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: . . . whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies — in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. —1 […]

The Gift of Grace

The law of the harvest is explained in 2 Corinthians 9:6-15. Verse 15 says, “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” Now if a gift is that good that it can’t be described, I want to know about it. So what is this gift that the Bible says is indescribable? We don’t have to […]

2 CORINTHIANS: A Kinder, Gentler Paul

Paul wasn’t always the most popular person in the pulpit. That was true with the people of Corinth.  His first letter was firm and forceful. In this, his second approach to the same body of believers, he appeals to them in perhaps a gentler, kinder way. He opens his heart and bares his soul.  He […]
