Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Best Weapon is Your Teeth - #4427
Our word for today from the Word of God comes from {bible}Nehemiah 2:1{bible}. Now, Nehemiah works for the king (he's the king's cup bearer), and he's pretty down because of news he's gotten about conditions back home. The Bible says, "I took the wine and gave it to the king. I had not been sad in his presence before. So the king asked me, 'Why does your face look so sad when you are not ill? This can be nothing but sadness of heart.'"

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Wounded But Still Fighting - #4301
If you've taken some hits lately - you're hurt, you're knocked down, you're wounded - then the stirring testimony of the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4, beginning with verse 7, should be an encouragement and a challenge to you. It's our word for today from the Word of God. It comes from one who has been wounded over and over again, and who refuses to stop fighting for Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Painful Road to Greater Results - #4302
I need to understand this pruning thing. It's one of God's most important tools in growing me - and you, for that matter. In fact, some of the difficulty and loss that you're experiencing right now may actually be your Heavenly Father cutting you back to help you grow. And the results are going to be far greater than they ever could have been if He left what He has been taking away.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Fog Cannot Win - #4316
The fog never really stands a chance - it's no match for the inevitable victory of the sun - in a majestic mountain landscape, or in the dark moments of your life and mine. And it could be that you're in one of those seasons right now. It's been a time of loss, of grief, of doubt and confusion, of a prodigal loved one, of no answers. Maybe you've been walking through a fog where evil seems to be winning; where injustice seems to be prevailing. The fog has rolled into your life and obscured things you were once so sure of. It's covered the joy you once had with a sense of sadness and fear and even thoughts of giving up.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - God's Wooden Magnet - #4319
Jesus said in John 12:32, our word for today from the Word of God, "'But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.' He said this to show the kind of death He was going to die." Strip away all the Christianity, and all the rituals, and all the steeples, and all the creeds and you're down to what this is really the issue - the God who hung on the cross. Jesus, God's one and only Son, pouring out His life to absorb all the hell of all the sin of all the people who have ever lived. Including you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Tougher Than The Tornado - #4324
There are moments for all of us when we get hit head-on with the emotional equivalent of an F5 tornado. There are some of life's hits that threaten to blow away everything we've depended on. A divorce can do that, a disease can do that, a disaster or a disappointment. A death can sure send everything spinning. We know that most of what matters to us is something we can lose - and if and when we do, there is sometimes not much left but the pieces.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The House We Didn't Finish - #4325
That's not the only house a parent intended to build and never got done. In fact, many of us Moms and Dads knew how we wanted our family to be -- how we still want it to be -- but somehow the home, the family we intended to build never got finished, did it? Even as our children were leaving for college, Karen and I talked about how quickly the years had melted away and how we were feeling there was so much unfinished business in our kids' lives.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Where Trust is Born - #4359
Wounded, then afraid to trust, and missing a lot of love. That's not just the life story of a dog we know - it's the life story of millions of people. Maybe it's your story. You've been betrayed by people you should have been able to trust - abused, abandoned, deeply hurt. And it's hard for you to trust anyone. You've just been hurt too often.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Bumpy Road to a Beautiful Destination - #4361
Actually, you may be navigating a very bumpy road in your life right now, and you're not enjoying this process much at all. And as you're having to really slow down and to absorb the shocks, it's tempting to turn back, isn't it? But God wants to remind you today of something it is easy to forget when the road is rough: there's something beautiful -- something worth it -- at the end of this difficult journey.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Star Wars - And Our Wars - #4364
Spiritual power you can harness to help you win battles that you can't win with your own resources - that's actually a pretty interesting idea. Of course, our battles aren't about storm troopers or villains with light sabers. We're trying to make a marriage work, to be the parent our child needs us to be, to beat the personal monsters of anger, depression, addiction, selfishness, loneliness.
