The Race To Save Lives - #3733
Every day they live without Christ, they move one step closer to an eternity without Him. But you're there. And you have the serum. You have nothing more important to do with the rest of your life than to deliver life to those who will die if you don't.
No Time to Pray, No Hope if I Don't - #2787
There are miracles waiting for you if you will pay the price of praying when you feel there's just no time for it. You may think there's no time to pray, when, in fact, there's no hope if you don't.

It was that time of the year when the grass grew so fast, it seemed like our lawn needed to be mowed like every other day. My then five-year-old son was following me, clipping around the rocks, and I smiled at him and kept mowing. He came up to me and he said, “Daddy, could you do that again please?” I said, “Do what?” He said, “Could you please smile at me again. It’s your smile that keeps me going.”
A Bucket of Water, Or a Three-Alarm Fire - #2782
Don't wait another day to do something about the fire. It's as small now as it will ever be. Gently confront what you have to confront, forgive what you have to forgive, apologize for what you have to apologize for, and overlook what you have to overlook, but deal with whatever is between you.

One newspaper said, “Susan Boyle is a Disney movie waiting to happen.” Well, maybe so. She was a contestant on England’s Britain’s Got Talent TV show. She was described as unglamorous, unfashionable, unknown, and when she walked on stage the judges just rolled their eyes. And then she sang, and she blew everyone away! A YouTube clip of her singing attracted over 40 million hits. Nobody realized the treasure she had inside her.
Safe in the Middle of the Flood - #2713
You know floods are coming. Just don't wait for the floods to build the wall around your family. If you make each day a flood-proofing day, your family may be in the flood - but the flood won't be in your family.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Victim is Not Your Middle Name - #8261 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
Cindy called all the way from Alaska last night to ask for prayer. She has (called) a number of times (to ask for prayer), but this call brought some painful news. Cindy was the victim of a terrible sexual assault. Thankfully, she’s getting the appropriate counseling, but she, of course, really needs prayer. And as I prayed for her on the phone, I found myself praying this way: “Lord, help Cindy to never let this experience define who she is. ‘Rape victim’ is something awful that happened to her, Lord, but it’s not who she is.”
Unused Capabilities - #2736
We're settling for the mediocre when we're wired for the miraculous. You have the Holy Spirit of Almighty God living in your body - you have backing you up the authority that Jesus has over everything in the universe - you have Jesus' resurrection power in your life - are you living like it?
Fragile Stickers - #2632
A lot of times we handle people roughly in reaction to how they handled us. But Jesus calls us to do pro-active talk, not reactive, not treating people as we were treated by as we want them to treat us, and treating them, not as they have treated you, but as Jesus has treated you.

Baseball season was always a special time for me and my boys. We bonded, actually, playing baseball together, and I remember when I was first teaching my oldest son how to hit a ball. It was just a plastic Wiffle bat and ball in our backyard. And I pitched gently, but he was just chopping at it and missing. He had two strikes. I went over to him, coached him a little, took a few steps back to throw the ball, and said, “Hey, I know you’re going to hit it this time, man!” He whacked that ball into the neighbor’s yard. Do you know, years later, in a college class where they asked students about important memories from their childhood, that’s the day he told them about.
