Born Looking

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

They came asking. They came by day, bustling in crowds of hundreds. They came by night, skulking through the shadowy darkness, alone. They all came  asking. They came hungry, their mouths open like baby birds. And he fed them. They came thirsty, and he gave them living water. They came...

Why Choose Darkness?

Posted by Rebecca Spence on

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”— John 8:12 What is darkness, but the absence of light? What is sin, but the absence of Christ? Over and over...

Missing the True Father

Posted by Scott Hiney on

Sometimes in nature, though rarely, a young animal will lose its parent and, miraculously, another animal will raise that young as its own. To relate, God is the foundation of our faith. It is by and through him that we have life, and no one can come to the father except through his son Jesus...

A Sense of Purpose is Powerful

Posted by Steve Glenn on

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.— Colossians 3:23 People who have a strong sense of purpose can do great things. God has given us a purpose: to bring honor to him and to encourage his people. The Word tells us that God has...

Joe's True Purpose

Posted by Lisalette Hamon on

My husband, Joe, grew up playing several sports but went on to play baseball in college. He had offers to major Division I schools, and verbally committed to catch for the University of San Diego, which was ranked third in the nation at the time. Nearing the end of his sophomore baseball season...

A Beautiful Poem

Posted by Ian Crosby on

I’m the first to admit that I’m not what most people would call a manly man. Honestly, I’m way more comfortable building a sandwich than building a coffee table. But I remember when I used to love trying to build stuff (trying is the key word). For Christmas, when I was 7, I...

An Elevated Purpose

Posted by Laci Prewitt on

I am the world’s biggest fan of the TV show, Parks and Recreation. I have seen every episode at least three times, I own every season, and am currently watching it on Netflix. I’m a go big or go home kinda gal. Early on in the series, a character named Tom introduces us to his...

Know the Author

Posted by Casey Coats on

Over the course of my 12-year relationship with my wife, I’ve written her a few poems. I’m not the world’s greatest poet or anything, but if you’re a man and you’ve found yourself a good woman, you should write her a poem every once in a while. (I’m not sure...

Grace Alone

Posted by Joe Paris on

I am pastor, a child of God, and I have been a follower of Jesus Christ for over 30 years, so this is hard for me to admit. If I am honest, however, I have a difficult time accepting that salvation is free. I have never liked giveaways or freebies. Something for nothing just doesn’t seem...


Posted by Kevin Kelley on

A friend of ours is currently going through a very painful, ugly and mean divorce. The story isn’t anything unique or new. One day, her spouse woke up and decided that he didn’t want to be married any longer. Maybe it was the younger, slimmer, more athletic, sexier co-worker’s...
