This Is Your Story

Posted by Blake Clickner on

Have you ever listened to the voice in your head that tells you things like this? “You’re not good enough.” “You’re not as bad as them.” “It’s OK, no one will know.” That voice can get us in a lot of trouble, and that voice needs to be...

God Can Use You

Posted by Blake Clickner on

The enemy has a plan for each of us, just like God has a plan for us. Satan’s goal is simple: stop God from getting the glory. He uses all kinds of tactics, and rarely are any of them seen. Most of them are in our heads. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own...

Life Scars

Posted by Blake Clickner on

If you are reading this, I’m 98% sure that you have some kind of scar on you somewhere. Some scars may remind you of something special. Maybe you try to hide them. Or perhaps they represent a life lesson. I couldn’t tell you where all my scars come from. At last count, I have more...

Doubt and Control

Posted by Blake Clickner on

Why do we put limitations on God? Why do we tell God, “I can’t”? It has to do with doubt. For some reason, we forget God spoke the universe into existence, and we forget God can do anything through us. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. — Philippians...

Trust Him and Jump

Posted by Blake Clickner on

When I was a young boy, I decided I would get on the roof of my house. I thought it would be incredible! I thought I could see my grandparents’ house from the top of our roof. I was sadly mistaken. We had a one-story house surrounded by trees, and my grandparents lived over five miles...

Perspective is Everything

Posted by Blake Clickner on

Frequently the world says that if we fail, we are done. But God is bigger than our failures. R.A. Dickey was an incredible pitcher for the Tennesse Volunteers who drafted by the Texas Rangers because of his 94-mph fastball. But when he had surgery to remove a bone spur, everything changed...

Count Your Many Blessings

Posted by Blake Clickner on

Almost 14 years ago, I was sitting in a pew at my previous church, and it was a rough day. Nothing seemed to go right. I had some church members chew me out about how loud the students were, my pastor came to me and asked why I didn’t have suit on and then explained how we are to set an...

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. — 1 Peter...

Daddy, HELP!

Posted by Blake Clickner on

Have you ever felt like you couldn’t do something on your own? Like you needed help with accomplishing something? My kids are now at the age where they don’t really need Dad. This is hard for me. I can remember a time when they completely depended on me and their mom. But now...

God Is God

Posted by Blake Clickner on

This devotional was originally published on Feb. 8, 2012. The other day, my 3-year-old son, Cade, told me, “You no tell me what to do!” Of course, I changed his mind quickly, but it caused me to think of how often I say this to God. I may not use poor grammar in my communication...
