June 19, 2018 – Jesus is With Us in Life’s Storms

Our dear friends in New Zealand who own Treetops Estates told me about a terrible 50-year storm that almost sent a portion their world-class lodge from its hillside perch into the valley below. In May, a tremendous storm hit the “Land of the Great White Cloud” and smothered the North Island with so much rain that it closed many facilities, highways, and impacted some beautiful resorts.

June 12, 2018 – A Fish Story

A person had a large aquarium that served as a home for an adult pike. The researcher noticed that every time he put minnows in the tank the pike would quickly gobble them up. As part of an experiment, the investigator decided to slip a plate of glass into the tank separating the pike from the area where he would introduce the baitfish. He then placed some minnows on the side away from the pike.

Gordon is one of the most remarkable people I’ve ever met. Despite his blindness, he is one of the most sought-after musicians in Nashville. If you look at the credits of a Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, or Martina McBride album anxious to find the name of the great piano player who adds so much musical flavor to those top-selling records, the name Gordon Mote, an accomplished musician, master prankster, and devoted Christian will appear on the album jacket.

May 22, 2018 – Encourage The Downhearted

It was a cold New York December day just before Christmas. A little boy, who was about 10 years old, was standing in front of a shoe store on the roadway, barefoot, peering through the big plate-glass window, and shivering with cold. An older lady approached the boy and said, “My little fellow, why are you looking so earnestly in that window?” The young boy responded, “I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes.”

At one time or another, we will all face disappointment, trials, hardships, and even depression. But only the child of God has the promise that His presence is with us in the midst of the storm. Our Heavenly Father is with us at the beginning of our journey and at the end. He doesn’t promise us smooth sailing, but a safe passage.

May 8, 2018 – Our Stuff

There are times we have a tight grip on our things. For some their stuff is so precious they won’t trust even their closest friends with it. When we recall the story of Abraham and Isaac we stand amazed at the fact that Abraham would seriously consider taking the life of his only son, for whom he waited 100 years.

A young man who worked in a store filled with aquariums explains that the most popular fish is the shark. If you catch a small shark and confine it, it will stay a size proportionate to the aquarium. Sharks can be six-inches long yet fully matured. But if you turn them loose in the ocean, they grow to their normal length of eight to ten feet.

A few years ago, at the Seattle Special Olympics, nine contestants, all physically or mentally disabled, assembled at the starting line for the 100-yard dash. At the gun, they all started out, not exactly in a dash but with a relish to run the race to the finish and win – all, that is, except one little boy who stumbled on the asphalt, tumbled over a couple of times, and began to weep.

April 17, 2018 – Salvation

Imagine a drowning person who is pulled from the ocean. It’s not just about being saved from drowning; it’s also about the new opportunity to live a life committed to significance not just success. Isaiah’s words create a powerful picture of a white garment with a scarlet stain. Only the blood of Christ can take that red, crimson stain and make it white as snow.

April 10, 2018 – The Peace of God

On a blustery day, a fellow was working on his roof, which had a sharp peak. So he decided to be safe he should somehow secure himself to something on the earth. He tied a rope around his waist, pulled it tight, climbed to the roof, and went over the peak. Then he threw the rope over the side and said to his boy, “Tie that to the tree.” Well, the little kid thought, “That tree is rather small.” So he tied the rope…

One of them, named Cleopas, asked him [the stranger walking in their midst], “Are you only a visitor to Jerusalem and do not know the things that have happened there in these days?” “What things?” he asked. “About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel…”

March 13, 2018 – The Cross

At that moment the Spirit of God began to convict Charles of his sins. All the Scripture he had read, and all the occasions others witnessed to him about Christ flooded his mind. He stood on the platform backwards to make his dive, spread his arms to gather his balance, looked up to the wall, and saw his own shadow on the side of the pool building. The moonlight silhouetted his body projecting the shape of a cross on the stark, white wall.
