Life can be challenging, leaving us weary and wondering what it’s going to take to feel restored again.

  One of the most puzzling aspects of internalizing and living out the truth of Christ’s finished work on the cross is how to pray. I mean, if it’s all been done, if He’s already working things out for my good, if He already knows my need and He’s already accomplished what concerns me, what’s left to say?

Stop and change my way of thinking, otherwise my mind goes dark and my heart hurts. It is during those times that I have to lean the most on the Word of God. In this case I read, pray and mediate over Romans 8.

He is risen – and we are saved! 
  Let’s tell our children that story. Let’s make sure they know that Jesus loves them enough not only to die, but to rise again.

No matter how God-like we want to be, a little neglect is all it takes for weeds to take root in our life. Less than Christ-like characteristics can creep in slowly with no warning.

I ugly-pray-cried that Friday; I am not sure if you ever ugly-pray-cried to God before but it’s not pretty.

 It was early in the morning, the servant woke up, walked outside and his heart dropped. Outside, the city was surrounded by the enemy. He started freaking out…

It reminds us that He is our God, and we are His people–and implies strongly (to me, at least), that He, our God, is the ultimate; without Him, what else is there?

It’s what we all want, don’t we?  Especially at Christmas, the words are everywhere.  But what do we mean?  Does that mean we don’t want war?  What if we aren’t at war, do we still want peace?

When he heard John, he was greatly perplexed; and yet he liked to listen to him.’ Mark 6:20 (NRSV)  Though King Herod was intrigued by John the Baptist’s words and ‘he liked to listen to him’, the hearing made no difference to Herod.

Why do bad things happen to good people? Why are bad/foolish people in power? How do I make wise decisions? What do I do when bad things happen to me, because of someone’s unwise (or evil) decision? How can I live a good life?

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.– Sitting at the mountain ledge, staring out into the lake below  me, I could feel the heavens declaring the glory of God.

“Come here…you have to see this!”  I stepped outside into the summer night, “Look!” my husband exclaimed.  As my eyes adjusted, I could see a multitude of twinkling lights across the row of backyards.  It was dozens of fireflies, flashing on and off, sprinkling the night with magic.
