Spiritual Distancing

Posted by Andrew Knight on

In the fall of 2011, I spent five weeks away from my family in Zambia. Five weeks. For those who have been deployed overseas or have had long-term remote assignments, you understand (probably better than I) how challenging it can be. While we were able to communicate and keep in touch during...

Grab On and Stand Steady

Posted by Kaitlyn Bray on

When we are in love, romance movies resonate with us. When we are sad, tragedies hit all the right chords. The same could probably be said with our days of inner rage and watching Liam Neeson give the bad guys their just desserts. This is also true, at least for me, with Bible stories. There...

God Uses Everything

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

A mother was busy making supper in the kitchen and, needing a can of tomato soup, she asked her 5-year-old son to go into the pantry and get one for her. But the light in the pantry was out and he didn’t really want to go in there. “It’s dark in there and I’m...

“The children are dressed and ready for school. But there is no food for them to eat,” the housemother of the orphanage informed George Mueller. George asked her to take all 300 children into the dining room and have them sit at the tables ready for breakfast. He thanked God for the...

Because He Lives

Posted by Cheri Akers on

True confession time: When I agreed to write this devotional based on Sunday’s sermon, I did it with the full knowledge that it was for me as much as it would be from me. It is hard to step back and look at life and realize how much has changed in a week. We are each surveying how it will...

Never, Never Ever

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

There’s this icebreaker game that groups play called Never Have I Ever. (I’ve heard that it’s also been used at social gatherings for various purposes, but that’s not the point here, folks. Try to focus, please.) Players sit in a circle facing inward, with one fewer chair...

I love the story in the Old Testament book of Joshua about the Israelites crossing the Jordan River. The children of Israel are waiting to cross the Jordan. However, this story takes place during the flood stage, which made it near impossible for anyone to cross the river during that time. God...

He, Not Me

Posted by on

Hear my cry, O God, from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. — Psalm 61:1–3 In college, I was challenged to write my own Psalm 63. Psalm 63, like many...
