What Defines You?

by Shelby Gorman He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. (1 Peter 2:24) In my last post I shared how I like to write down my prayers and even shared a few with you. With this one I thought I would let you in on why: I am a sinner. If you know the Bible then you know that...

The Language of Lament

by Lee Coleman On October 27, 2014, Taylor Swift released her fifth studio album entitled 1989. It was notable for all the usual reasons: it debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart, sold 1.2 million copies in the first week, and was a huge hit with fans and critics. But it was also significant in that it was Swift's first purely pop album as she sought to distance herself fr...

Circumstances in Light of God’s Character

by Gray Blocker Over the last few years, I have realized that my trust in the Lord can stem from my circumstances and not from His character. When life is easy or I feel in control, I believe He is a good God. But do I have this same viewpoint when things don't go according to my plan or when I don't feel His presence? In order to truly trust the Lord, we must remind ours...

The Architect

by Gary Dyksterhouse Not too long ago I was sent a link by Stephen Pillow to take a personality test. He and his wife Kim had taken it recently, and they wanted to send it out to some of their friends. I rarely participate in these sorts of actions, but I had 5 free minutes of time, and decided to indulge. The last time I can remember taking one of these tests it was the ...

A Sure and Certain Hope

by Gene Stansel Putting all clichs aside, without a doubt we live in troubling times. The entire world is filled with troubles, and we have troubles on our plate as well. How do we face them? Do we resist? Are we critical? Do we grumble? Or do we face trouble with a stoic false joy? What we really need is a certain hope that there is something better for us in the future....

Good Parenting Begins With Knowing and Fearing God

by Portia Collins A little over one year ago, I gave birth to my beloved daughter, Emerie Mikhaela. After spending 19 days in the NICU, my husband and I were finally able to bring our baby home and start our new life as a family. To be completely honest, it was terrifying. I think we both were completely scared out of our minds at the thought of being parents. Let's ...

Fast forward to next week, you don't want to hear your friends and coworkers talking about what a great time they had over the weekend.
