Stop Being Phony

  Here’s how we can be sure that we’ve truly come to know God: if we keep his commands.  If someone claims, “I have come to know God by experience,” yet doesn’t keep God’s commands, he is a phony and the truth finds no place in him. We can be sure that we’ve truly come to live in intimacy with …

  Jesus never allows forgiveness to be “negotiable” among his disciples. Forgiveness is the spiritual air we breathe in from God, and the spiritual air we breathe out toward others. If breath is stopped in either direction, we suffocate spiritually. Gary Thomas

  We all leave footprints in the sand. If we’ve lived only for this life, when we die, the footprints will soon wash away. If we’ve lived for God, others, and eternity, when our footprints have washed away, our light will remain for many generations and shine into eternity. Phillip

And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! Matthew 6: 22, 23   If I …

The Day I Realized I Might Not Be a Duck

  My life had fallen into the deepest, darkest night of the soul I had ever known. I was spiraling down, down, deeper and deeper. In 1996, my book, Weeping May Endure For a Night had just been published. People were calling me for advice I didn’t know how to give. They thought I could help them. I wanted to …

Treasure in Clay Jars

  We are like common clay jars that carry this glorious treasure within, so that the extraordinary overflow of power will be seen as God’s, not ours. Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but quitting is not an option. 2 Corinthians 4:7-8 “We are like common clay jars. …

All of Us Are Blind

  Then Jesus spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes. He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam.”  So, the man went and washed and came back seeing!

  Overthinking warps your perception and perspective because it’s in your head and not your heart. It’s like flying with a broken wing. Lister & Phil

I surrender to what God is asking, pushing through my fear and inner resistance, and moving in his direction. That grows my faith and inner strength. Phillip

Dig Deep

  A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest— then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber. Proverbs 6:10-11 Nothing will come easy that’s worth fighting for. This can be from our relationship with God to our daily work. Each day could be …
