Not Every Road

I might say, “God led me,” just because I took the path in front of me. But that doesn’t mean God actually led me. Not every path in front of me that looks right is right. That’s like driving along a road because it’s there but I don’t actually know if I’m on the road I’m supposed to be on. …

A Little Faith Is All It Takes

When I’m in a difficult place, sometimes all I’ve got left is a little faith. Faith saved the immoral woman who wept at Jesus’ feet. When she left that night, she went in peace. She could have told Jesus, “I’d rather hang out in my misery until my faith is bigger.” But she accepted the gift of forgiveness and walked …

Listen and Explore

Listening and exploring are two traits of the wise. They have learned how to listen and they love exploring the meaning in the proverbs. The Scriptures aren’t meant for us to speed read. We have to dig, ponder, and listen. My mind wants to race from thought to thought, like a pebble skipping across a calm lake. There’s a lot …

Practice Playing Second Fiddle

If a strong musician backs up a weaker musician, the music often sounds much better. If team members fill in the gaps where a leader is weak, then the results are powerful. If we as leaders support the people around us, we’ll help them become better men and women. It takes tremendous humility to support someone whom we perceive as …

The Hide and Seek God

How many times have I walked along through life and Jesus was right there walking with me but I didn’t know it? Just as a thief or a sniper could be watching me right now, just as people see my life when I don’t think they’re looking, or just as the angels protect me from danger I don’t see, Jesus …
