Relationship, Perspective and Focus

Posted by Andrew Knight on

One of the most important habits of my life is the habit of waking up and immediately spending time with the Lord. When I first wake up, I do my best not to let my thoughts wander too far from him. I spend a few minutes praying and then try to follow that with a few minutes in his word. I...

Listen To Your Coach

Posted by Andrew Knight on

One day in middle school, I was finishing up P.E. when my coach pulled me aside and asked me if I wore deodorant. Apparently a teacher whose class I had post-P.E. each day)had mentioned something to him about my B.O. Yeesh! I guess my personal hygiene was worse than I had realized. How...

The Hunger That Satisfies

Posted by Andrew Knight on

We were playing paintball out in the woods at youth camp, decked out in our full camo gear (you know, ‘cause we were serious like that), and trying to endure a brutal late-July Texas day that was even more punishing than the flying paintballs we were trying to avoid. Back at camp a few...

On July 7, 2016, a peaceful Black Lives Matter rally in downtown Dallas turned deadly when Micah Xavier Johnson ambushed a group of police officers, killing five and injuring several others before being killed himself by a police robot. The tragedy sent shock waves throughout the nation and...

Transactional Living

Posted by Andrew Knight on

I have a disease. This disease is characterized by brief interactions with others, short conversations and an underlying focus on time and efficiency. The effects of this disease include shallow relationships, meager personal engagement and a yearning for something more. I suffer from...

Call And Seek

Posted by Andrew Knight on

My 2 ½-year-old son and I play a game together. I would call it hide and seek, but it’s really more like call and seek. Here’s how it works: My son runs off somewhere in the house, usually just a few feet from where I’m standing. I pretend not to know where he is. I...

Confess, Believe, Abide

Posted by Andrew Knight on

“I am with you. I am for you. Don’t be afraid.” This was God’s message to Mary when he revealed through the angel Gabriel that she would be the mother of the promised Messiah. His words of reassurance even preceded the news itself. It was as if God was saying...

What's On Your List?

Posted by Andrew Knight on

The Christmas catalog from Target arrived at our house last week. There was a time when our children would have seized upon it, markers in hand, to circle all the things they wanted to find under the tree on Christmas morning. But this year, it hardly evoked a glance. Clearly, our teenagers have...

Messy Uncertainty

Posted by Andrew Knight on

Okay, can I be honest? It takes time to write these devotionals. It would be much easier if the church staff would just tell me exactly what to write. They could give me the devotional, already written, and I could just sign my name to it. Or else they could give me an outline that I could fill...

He Is For Us

Posted by Andrew Knight on

Our son just went off to college for the first time. Needless to say, it has been a bittersweet time around our house. We miss having him around, but we are excited about this new chapter in his life and where he is headed. In the midst of all the feelings and emotions, one thing is certain: we...
