Grief With Hope

It is hard to imagine grief with hope. Losing someone or something, having deep sorrow and pain, suffering the irritation and grief in unmet expectations, and yet still being hopeful. Hope is the grounds for knowing something good is going to happen. How then can we have a hope of good to happen while suffering the grief of bad things? Is it possible to have emotions in tw...

Loving One Another

Caring for another person is no small thing. Tending physical needs of clothing, shelter, health concerns is quite literally a matter of life and death. Taking another step is the regard for value of personhood beyond mere physical needs. Possessing a concern beyond one's own person, having regard for another's very soul, is a feat of cosmic proportions. Some might say th...

Sojourners & Exiles

"Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul."(1 Peter 2:11, ESV) Over the course of 2020 and starting into 2021, we've been privileged to deal with chaos. It could be worse. It could be better. It has been sort of an unraveled display of mankind's depravity. Maybe chaos is too strong of ...

Be Merciful O God!

"Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by. I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me. He will send from heaven and save me; he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah God will send out his steadfast love and his faithf...

Withholding Judgment

I frequently breached the subject of judgment. I've often said, 'we need to withhold judgment'. A phase worth contemplation, even with it's frequent use, doesn't mean that it is well understood. What do I mean by such a phrase? Does it mean that we need to keep from being a judge? Yes, but it also means much more. Does it mean to be highly opinionated about every situatio...

Dedication to Christ

R.G. LeTourneau, a successful and famous industrialist once penned, 'A Christian businessman owes as much to God as a preacher does.' No kidding! Isn't this a presupposed reality amongst Christians? Does it really need to be stated? Yes, it does need to be stated. And no, few presuppose that they are to be fully committed to Christ. Many assume full commitment to be the so...

Known by God

"Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?" (Galatians 4:89, ESV) Followers of Christ mustn't forget, we once were slaves to...

Singing In Chains

"About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God,and the prisoners were listening to them," (Acts 16:25, ESV) I've often shared my astonishment of this passage. Intrigue, conviction, astonishment all flow at the same time when reading the midnight account. While it is not our desire to suffer punishment, it should be our desire to suffer well. Reading...

Gratitude, Grace, & Prayer

Gratitude is not a natural habit of the flesh. More often than not, mankind is upset for what lacks rather than grateful for what is possessed. Ingratitude easily flows from the heart of man, making him blind to blessings and keenly aware of any malediction. Often our hearts possess the frustrated retort, 'thanks for nothing'. Followers of Christ know thankfulness is a pa...

Praying at All Times

"Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints," (Ephesians 6:18, ESV) 'Praying at all times' is not a hard task 'Psssh' should be your response to that first sentence. Have you ever tried to pray at all times? Yeah, but prayer is simple, it's just talking to God,...

Prayers & Supplication

supplication

"In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence." (Hebrews 5:7, ESV) Hebrews 5:7 is an amazing passage for numerous reasons, but mostly because in it we learn that Jesus was heard because of his reverence. Jesus prayed. He prayed with c...

Find encouragement where it is to be found

bibleintheWoods

Find encouragement where it is to be found. A profound axiom for sure, at first glance it appears to be equal to a coach yelling the obvious. "You gotta make that shot!" or "Don't hit the ball into the net!" Like it was the athlete's intention to miss the shot or hit the ball into the net. Yet the apparent similarity of poor coaching, and 'Find encouragement where it is t...

The Unexpected Turn

Change

Life's unexpected turns overshadow the big picture, but should they? The day begins. A plan is established. Yet rarely do things work as scheduled. Interruptions arise, things break down, others fail to do what they've promised. It becomes a frustration that one expects things to go wrong. A wise rancher trusts that the work will be there tomorrow. Error is part of his w...

Critical Christian

Everyone is a critic, including myself. Judgment seems natural to mankind. We, and I mean we, like to look at something or someone and find flaws. Call it cultural influence, nurture of the parents, or even the consequence of fallenness. Whatever the label, it truly exists in all of us, even the person who wears the 'sweetest person in the world' crown. Followers of Chris...

Sometimes societal rejection of God can lead a Christian to feel like a car salesmen. Maybe that was just my feeling, but it was a feeling encouraged by people's faithless responses to the message of Christ. I hope you know what I mean, when those around you have rejected God, and in seeking to share with them the things of God, there is an irritable response where the mes...

Loving the Lost

Loving the souls of others is costly. It is an endeavor of loving the unloveable, the unloved, and the loveless. Jesus' purpose in His seeking of the lost is most assuredly the glory of God displayed in His fidelity to the Father, and His love for the souls of man. "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost." Luke19:10 Phenomenal love, different from anything m...
