Seldom a Lot, But Always Enough - #6593
Take your assignment from God in 24-hour chunks. Count on enough grace for each day. My kids knew that their Father would see that they had what they needed that day. God's kids know their Father is much better than that.
Tomorrow's Weather - #6514
You can stand this stormy season if you know it won't rain forever. Oh, you have hurt, but because of Jesus you have hope. So don't be discouraged. I have seen tomorrow's weather.
True Woman: Losing a Daughter: “From My Arms to His Arms”
Angie wasn’t pregnant with Audrey for very long before she knew something wasn’t right.
True Woman: Angie's Goodbye Letter to Her Daughter
"I cannot see to write these words because my eyes overflow with the tears of a mother who has been asked to give her daughter away."
Light for Life's Darkest Valley - #6103
Jesus has, in essence, turned death from the enemy that destroys everything we have into a friend who opens the gate to everything God has. But if you don't know Him when you die, it will be too late to change it. Now is what we have. Some of us won't have a warning like my friend did. The end of our life will be sudden. The most dangerous thing you can do in your life, the most deadly, is to ignore or postpone or reject Jesus Christ.
Never Forgetting What it Cost - #6100
Each new day, make your way up to that skull-shaped hill again and picture yourself at the foot of that old rugged cross. Let His blood cover the sin that you brought with you. Let His love poured out there capture your heart again. And let His sacrifice there give you the courage to live for Him, whatever it takes, and whatever it costs.
The Fog Cannot Win - #6030
The evil may have its hour of filling your horizon, but the Son's going to win! The grief will not last forever. Your prodigal will one day be carried home on the shoulders of the Good Shepherd. The doubts you're having in the darkness can't change what you heard from God when it was light. The answers you need will break through your confusion and struggle. The sadness of the fog is going to succumb to the joy of God's much more powerful sunlight.
The Cancer That Always Kills - #6014
The moment you reach out to Jesus, and in total trust take the cure that He died to give you, your hell is cancelled. Your sins are erased from God's book as if you'd never done them. Your cancer is cured. In the words of John 5:24 , you have literally "crossed over from death to life."
Hurting but Passed By - #6008
Sin is very serious business. It walls us off from God, from His love, and it brings us under the eternal judgment of the God we were made to live for. But God really loves you - enough to sacrifice the most precious thing He had to heal your broken relationship with Him. He allowed the body of His only Son to be broken on the cross for you as He died your death penalty for your sin.
The Empty Chair at Christmas - #5988
We were made for God's love, but we've all missed God's love because we've lived our way instead of His way. And no other love has been able to fill His place in our life. It's not God's fault that we're living outside a deep, daily experience of His love. He didn't leave us. We've walked away with Him to do with our life what we wanted.
