August 4, 2020 – Jesus, the Storm Calmer

August 4, 2020 – Jesus, the Storm Calmer

That day when evening came, He said to His disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took Him along, just as He was, in the boat. There were also other boats with Him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, don’t You care if we drown?”

July 28, 2020 – A Place of Rest

There’s something about strolling along a quiet beach that brings calm — an escape from the struggles and challenges of life. With a passion for excellence in any career comes the need to keep balanced as well. Christ regularly took time for solitude with His Heavenly Father. Throughout Scripture we see how God meets man in the “quiet places” of His creation.

July 21, 2020 – Getting Older

Each morning I wake up and begin the process of stretching out the stiff muscles and tendons to the rhythm of bones and joints cracking as they reset for another day of activity. As I make my way to the mirror in our bathroom, I discover more grey hair, another reminder that I’m getting older.

July 14, 2020 – A Symbol That Can’t Be Taken from Us

While mistakes were made in the original thinking of our founding fathers on such issues as slavery and woman suffrage, a wonderful mechanism was put in place to amend the Constitution. To date, twenty-seven amendments have been ratified and put in place to help better govern our country and correct the mistakes of the past.

June 30, 2020 – Take a Stand

Nowadays, we face many social and peer pressures to conform and be compliant. People tell us “not to rock the boat,” but to trust political leaders and media sources that try to intimidate us. It is noteworthy when someone stands up for their faith and convictions, others gain confidence to join with us, for courage is contagious.

June 23, 2020 – A Model for Christian Living

In Jesus’ day as today, many seek happiness and ultimate meaning in life in numerous ways similar to those tried by Solomon. In our pursuit of meaning and happiness we’ve made so much of our careers, our fitness, our possessions, fame, fortune, sex, sports, and entertainments of all kinds. But as with Solomon, we discover in the end that none of that provides ultimate purpose.

June 16, 2020 – “Bearing” Under Trials

I enjoy the beautiful, award-winning photography of Idaho photographer Tim Christie. He has a way of capturing the outdoors on film that truly honors and glorifies the Creator. Of course, capturing these shots can be quite an adventure… sometimes more than he bargained for.

May 26, 2020 – What Do You Do With Your Pain?

Pain is not always physical but presents itself in many ways. There’s emotional pain when others accuse us wrongly, breach our trust, or reject us. There’s the soul ache of grief when we lose someone close to us, or when we watch someone we love fall into addiction or walk away from God. The pain of financial struggles, public humiliation, or personal failure are no less real.

May 19, 2020 – On What Do You Base Your Fear?

Today, many people focus on their fears instead of the rich promises of God. We fear financial ruin because of recession. We fear the loss of our jobs because of a declining economy and devaluation of U.S. currency. As I write this, the whole nation and world is fearful of the coronavirus and its global impact.

May 12, 2020 – When One String Is Enough

As he began the final piece one of the strings on his violin snapped. In his genius, Paganini was able to continue playing the piece on the remaining three strings. A moment later, a second string snapped. Still, Paganini continued playing the concerto on the remaining two strings. And then, a third string snapped, but still Paganini continued. He finished the piece, note for note, with one string on his violin.

May 5, 2020 – Take the Field – Play the Game

For America and the world one day this will all be over. The early church was no stranger to plagues, epidemics, and mass hysteria.

April 28, 2020 – Do You Believe in Miracles?

In this fast-paced, high-tech world some people have forgotten that God is in the business of making miracles. Mankind has explored the depths of the universe and the bottom of the seas. We have modified DNA and created artificial parts for the human body. Through technology, we can supply an endless stream of information and artificial intelligence. We’ve become self-sufficient. But the reality is, we still can’t create miracles. We still get into situations where we’re just stuck.
