Are you a control freak? Most of us want to control everything around us. We try to control our image and act like we’ve got it all together. We try to control our problems and our pain. We want to control our kids’ environment and I guess that’s a good thing some times. We try […]

Stillness

Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” The antidote to soul sickness is stillness, the ancient art of just being still. When I get still before God, I acknowledge that He is God and He’s in control. So, when I try to fix everything and solve my problems in my own […]

A Firm Foundation

Alan Shepherd, the first American astronaut, was once asked by a reporter, “What is the number one thing you are counting on in your first voyage?” Alan Shepherd replied, “I am depending on the fact that God’s laws never change.” Aren’t you glad the law of gravity doesn’t reverse itself every other day?

Lift up God’s Name

The purpose of the church is to lift up the name of Jesus Christ. One day, the names of all the famous people who are alive today will be completely forgotten. Just think about that for a moment. The names of all the movie stars, all the rock stars, all the presidents, princes, and kings […]

The Voice of Truth

As Caleb wandered through the dessert with the rest of Israel for forty years, I’m sure he heard that small voice say, “Give up, you’ll never be back in the Promised Land.” But he spoke words of faith and truth. “I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out. I’m just […]
