The Lord is my Shepherd, Part 1

When it comes to ministry and finding an answer to the question “What is the Lord calling me to?” there are innumerable answers. Some are helpful, others leave you feeling like a spiritual cripple – I don’t know about you, but God’s never spoken directly to me in the night like Samuel.

Is There an Evangelical Way to Observe Lent?

A Lent Hold-out I’ve been a hold-out on Lent, and, as commonly practiced, I still am. All human traditions have a built in high-risk factor which is one reason why I try to undermine them every chance I get!

PB&J

Ladies, coming up with lunch ideas is hard. Don’t you agree? You either have to take a lot of time to prepare, pray for a stroke of brilliance, or just eat whatever you can slap together last minute. Or you just eat the same thing all the time. And, really, it’s all about making sure the kids are fed and the husband has lunch. But maybe it’s just me. My husband’s ...

The word “Lent” refers to spring, signaling emergence from the cold barrenness of winter to life-renewal on planet earth. The symbolic usefulness of this ...

Ask to Be Happy

“Until now you have asked nothing in my name.  Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24 ESV) Have you ever thought that by asking for something you would inconvenience the person you’re asking?

Staying Wet in Dry Seasons

Dry Seasons I feel like it's been a really dry season. Have you ever heard that? Have you ever said that? I have. More than a few times. Why is that? I'm a new creation. I'm filled with the Spirit.

Sometimes I have no idea why the season is ...

More Than a Coin for the Master

The heat from the flames surrounded him with a tenacious roar that billowed as if blown by a blacksmith’s bellows to fire the coals.  The man traveled with lightning speed, propelled by some unknown force.  A blanket of air protected his body from the flames lapping over his legs.  Then without warning the fire consumed his clothing and singed his hair.  Instinctively ...
