Woman Power - #2804
The problem is that men just tend to continue this performance thing in their relationships with women, always feeling they have to be strong, together, right, winning. Until a Proverbs 31 woman comes along, a woman with whom he can share his secrets and know they will never be violated, a woman with whom he can risk being scared, frustrated, weak, unsure.
The Problem With Pushing - #2821
We can learn a lot from Jesus in how to get people to do things. As parents, for example, we want so much for our kids to make right choices - so much that we tend to just push harder and harder when they don't seem to be doing it - or when we're afraid they won't.

There is a love that is unloseable, unmoveable, unconditional - a relationship that will sustain you when everything else is out of control.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Clouds Over Baseball - #8253 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I heard it first from my baseball card collecting grandson: “Hear about A-Rod? He admitted using steroids.” He’s not the only 10-year-old boy to lock in on that news. And that’s not who you want to hear it from. Alex Rodriguez–three-time American League MVP, baseball’s highest paid player–admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs. And clouds again rolled in over Major League Baseball. He’s not the first, and probably not the last to have a giant question mark over a great career. How much was his ability, and how much was what he injected into his system?
One Velcro Friend - #5911
Our sins are very serious business, and they carry a death penalty which Jesus paid for you. I don't know if you've had a lot of relationships, and you hoped each one would be the ultimate harbor for your heart, and it wasn't. Jesus is life's only safe harbor, and you need to be in the safety of His love.
How to Open a Closed Door - #5904
Somewhere in your life there seems to be a closed door standing between you and something God wants you to do. You've been waiting for God to do something. Well, He's been waiting for you to do something: to start walking in the direction of where you believe He wants you to go, even if there's a closed door or a flooded river in front of you. See, that's His problem. Your problem is to get moving in the direction He's leading!
Your Attitude and Your Altitude - #5896
Set your attitude by the "horizon" of God's unchanging Word, even when your feelings and your surroundings are screaming to go another way. If your attitude is right, you'll hold your course, you'll fly steady as she goes, and you will complete your mission. So choose your attitude.
Turning Lights Green - #5892
Where are the people you need going to come from? He's already getting them ready for you and you ready for them. How are you going to get over the huge obstacles that are in the way? The God who parts Red Seas is going to make the way for you. How can you possibly do this thing when you are so flawed, so inadequate, so ordinary? Since when is this about what you can do? With God's assignment always comes God's enabling!
Heavy Lifting Without Injuries - #5885
Sometimes the heavier the burden, the more we neglect or forget to unload it on the shoulders of our all-powerful Lord. We're so busy trying to fix it, to carry it, to solve it, that we neglect taking it to God. Sometimes when we're hurting or discouraged, we just don't feel like praying. Great! That's exactly when we need to pray the most.
Trading Empty for Full - #5872
You were created by Jesus, you were created for Jesus, and you're going to have a hole in your heart until you have Jesus. Tragically, we have chosen to live "for me" instead of "for Him." And this hijacking of our life from our Creator, this sin, has put us in a futile orbit away from Him. But that's why Jesus came. That's why Jesus died - to pay the price for our rebellion so we could finally belong to the One we were made for.
