Solitude

Gripped by the Grind Often our lives are taken hold of by busy schedules. Day after day is filled with activities: school, work, sports, etc. And these activities can include serving God, going to prayer meetings, accountability groups, small groups, the list goes on. But the one thing we sometimes forget is solitude and its importance. We may be at Church or Cross Culture or whatever, and...

Sleep

God: Busy While We Sleep Each night we collapse into our beds, and eventually fall asleep. Then we wake up in the morning and start another day. We often see sleep as something natural that we do every night to restore our bodies. In Humility: True Greatness, C.J. Mahaney says that one thing we fail to see is where and how much, God is working in sleep. When we go to our beds to sleep we...

When You Sin

A Big Deal Sin should be a big deal to us as believers. When we are born again we are given a new nature to do what God wants and commands. As Galatians 5:24 says, “Those who belong to Jesus Christ have crucified the flesh...” and 1 Corinthians 5:17 says, “...the new has come.” We are new creations. However, sin still exists in our lives -- and will until we are with...

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?

Three Reminders

Do you ever have one of those moments where you have to remind yourself some about yourself? Laugh all you want, but you know you have had those moments. Like when you are spitting out coffee—“Blech, that’s right. I don’t like coffee, that’s why I don’t drink it.” Or “What am I doing watching this show, I don’t like this show at all!&rdquo...

Code of Elves

The holiday season is upon us. Time for fun, family, eggnog, and Buddy the Elf. I was watching the movie, Elf, just the other day and in one scene Buddy was in “Elf School” where they recite the “Code of Elves.” As I heard them recited I realized that if we translate them from Elven(?) to Christianese(?) they are actually a very good “code” for our daily...
