Keep Growing, Keep Going

Grace grows as we grow. And so does peace. As we mature, we find more mature ways to handle trials. And as we learn to handle trials, we give God a chance to be bigger in our minds than the trial itself. We then find greater measures of grace and peace. It comes down to our perspective and how resilient …

In the sense of what Jesus teaches, I believe a person is a lost sheep when they aren’t intentionally navigating their lives toward heaven, and they are emotionally disconnected from themselves, God, and the people around them. Are you lost? Phillip

Conception in a Whisper

It all starts with one tiny, almost invisible decision. An idea enters my heart and I embrace or reject it. God whispers, I respond. That’s the tiny, almost invisible decision I made in 1974, when I told God I would accept Jesus if he would be my father and let me be part of a family that loved each other. …

Living in the Light

What does living in the light mean to me? Farmers know plants need sunlight to grow. Doctors tell us sunlight is a great antidepressant. Our bodies need Vitamin D from the sunlight.

Why Do You Want to See Jesus?

Narcissistic, egotistical Herod the Great was accustomed to being entertained. He heard about Jesus and all his miracles and thought Jesus would give him a private show. Instead, Jesus kept quiet. Herod probably didn’t realize that Jesus didn’t come to earth to buddy up with other kings and celebrities at the country club. No, he came to do good and …

Jesus Felt My Dispair

There were times in my life when I stood on the edge of despair, felt worthless, and wanted to die. Sometimes I wanted to take my own life. My father had taken his life.
