God Loved Us First

Unlike God, I didn’t have the patience and wisdom to handle the situation as I should have, but like a loving father, I also realized its insignificance in our relationship and reached out to her.


Walk Before You Run

I knew how to sail from sailing a sunfish around the bay for years as a kid. While I’m no expert, the principles are basic. Knowing the direction of the wind and putting myself between the wind and the sail is all I needed to remember.  Applying this principle to windsurfing made a world of difference. To learn and progress, I had to do one thing before I could do another. This is equally true when it comes to knowing the will of God. We can’t know His will if we don’t first walk with Him.


Spiritual Realignment

Alignment is the process of adjusting the angles of our vehicle’s wheels to be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Our spiritual lives should also be perpendicular to the ground — pointing upwards to God, not horizontally.

Believe Also in Me

Believe Also in Me

“Because he was from Oklahoma, the Yankee great Mickey Mantle was my favorite person. Every year, when we started a new season, we all argued over who got to be number seven — Mickey’s number,” my Oklahoman friend (B) told me.


Knowing God

Knowing Scripture is a crucial aspect of being a Christian. God gave us the Bible so that we would know His word, feel His love, and touch His heart. But knowing the Bible doesn’t mean we’re living it.


Upward Spiral

While most Christians share common beliefs for the cornerstone of our faith, too many times we also feel tiny chards of glass that create discord and disagreement.

Woke or Awake

Woke or Awake?

Traditionally, “woke” was a past tense conjugation of “wake.” According to Merriam-Webster, there’s now a slang version meaning “aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues, especially issues of racial and social justice.”


Never Second-Guess God

Sometimes our plans align with God’s purposes and other times, they don’t. Proverbs 19 shows us how to trust God’s sovereignty and submit our plans to His will.


What Would Life Be Like Without God

Sometimes the subtle things in life grab my attention more than the obvious ones. Just when I think I know God’s message for me in His word, I’m gently reminded, “Nope, read it again, my child.”

Bear one another's burdens

Bearing One’s Burdens

Bearing another’s burdens goes way beyond merely offering words of sympathy or encouragement; it’s about actively getting involved in each other’s lives to help shoulder the difficulties and challenges we face.
