Growing in Faith

Finding thankfulness in time for Thanksgiving

1 more page of empty lines left in my journal. I don’t know about you, but my journal is my lifeblood – to process, pray and simply record. So this nearing-the-end thing is a cause for panic, a race to the nearest Barnes & Noble. But it’s also a time to reminisce. As I turn back to page 1, memories come alive: On Jan. 17th,…

Chairs and tables and sharpies….oh my!

My kitchen table is a little like me. It started out new and fresh. But, then you live a little and before you know it you’re covered in scratches and permanent stains. At one point, I got so sick of seeing the mess that I hid the table and chairs in the garage. There, I said, “it can be used as a junky garage table, that’s all it’s…

We are who God made us to be

I’m all about encouraging you! You are a masterpiece! When God made you, God really DID break the mold. There is no other person who is like you. Knowing that we are unique should humble us. It goes even further, He can use everybody He creates. God can look at you and can see what you will become before you have actually become it.…

When you don’t know what to do

I may have made this look way easier than it seems. Perhaps I have mislead you. Stepping out on faith should be easy, but rarely ever is. Our minds get in the way of our hearts. I wonder if the Bible greats like Noah, Moses, David, Paul, the many major and minor prophets, went through the same logical thought processes. I would like to think…

Start the day out right

In the morning, while it was still very dark, Jesus got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. (Mark 1:35) Henri...

Shortcuts

It was great! The ultimate shortcut when I was a student took me and my two girl friends right past a bakery on the way to class. We’d stop for our favorite muffins or chocolate-iced long johns, then leisurely finish the walk to our junior high school. Yummy, fun, and we were oh-so-cool in our bell bottom jeans. Until. . .one day when…

Storm be still!

On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, ‘Let us go across to the other side.’ And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. But he was in the stern, asleep on…

Can’t someone else do that, God?

One of my pet peeves is those rogue shopping carts just end up hanging out in the wild open parking lots. It’s not like they just take off with a mind of their own you know on some escape route that leads them to freedom. No….someone left them there, with no thought of walking them to their proper return stalls. Does this bother…

Prayer in a word: intimacy

Here’s a typical scenario. The morning alarm goes off—for the third time. You know that you can’t hit the snooze alarm again. You are already late. Something in your morning routine will have to go. Although you know you shouldn’t, you decide that you just don’t have time for your morning devotion of prayer and Bible…

Got pain? Get over it!

2 years ago, the front tire of my bike, met the space between a railroad track and the road. A half second later, my hands met the pavement. I broke both of them… in a few different places. That moment of physical pain provided lessons (always cross the tracks at a 90 degree angle… and unclip from my pedals). And it left scars that will…
