I Die Daily

  1 Corinthians 15:31 Organizations are fueled by the human spirit and human energy. Like the mighty river that originates from a little spring, everything in the organization begins, rises, and falls from what happens in the leader’s secret heart. It’s way too scary. I remember the years when I wanted to be the top guy, I wanted everyone to …

How to Succeed at Anything

  The word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does. Psalm 33:4 I’ve discovered you can apply the Bible to any facet of your life and it works just like is says it will. The Bible literally is a life-instruction manual. It’s not, “Try this and see if it works for you.” It’s, “Try this. It works …

Defying Gravity

  In a world full of noise and sensual distractions wanting to fill me and whip me around, I can live in and for its pleasures. Or I can lock myself inside a lonely shell. There’s a third option: I can look up to God for help. Must I follow the world’s pleasures until I’m in trouble and then cry …

In the Hot Flames of Temptation

  From Psalm 39 I said to myself, “I will watch what I do  and not sin in what I say. I will hold my tongue  when the ungodly are around me.” But as I stood there in silence— the turmoil within me grew worse. The more I thought about it,  the hotter I got. Sometimes my insides feel like …

Complete the Work

  I left you on the island of Crete so you could complete our work there and appoint elders in each town as I instructed you. Titus 1:5 Some people fight for positions. They want to stand on a pedestal above their peers for various reasons, such as pride, power, feeling insulated, or the illusion of job security. God wants …

It’s Okay That I’m Not Okay

  Let all who are helpless take heart. Psalm 34:2 You, David, felt helpless? The great king, the warrior-poet who relentlessly pursued after God’s heart, and one of the greatest men in the Bible…? You… Felt… Helpless? No. Read that again. The verse doesn’t say you felt helpless. It says you are helpless. It’s a little mind game I play …
