Known By Our Love

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

On Sunday, we learned that the Church is a community unlike any the world has ever known. We are automatically enrolled in this community when we come to saving faith in Jesus Christ, and we belong to it forever. This community has a Courageous Leader who modeled the way in which we are to...

Compassion for a Fresh Start

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Once again, I am committing to grow physically healthier this year. And once again, here comes that naysaying voice in my mind: “You tried before, and you failed. You went back to your old unhealthy ways. Why would this time be any different? Your tendencies to overeat and avoid exercise...

Wonderful Counselor

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Even though I love being a professional counselor, I would dread every session if it weren’t for the fact that I belong to the Wonderful Counselor. Let me explain. My job is to sit, hour upon hour, with people who are hurting. To be honest, much of the time, I feel powerless. It’s...

Recipe For Sanctification

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

In honor of the upcoming holiday season, I’m serving up a delicious recipe for family conflict. Enjoy! Take one heaping serving of family members who have avoided each other for the past 12 months. Add in a dash of unresolved baggage that has been pushed under the proverbial rug for the...

And God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. I will bless her, and moreover, I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall become nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.” Then Abraham fell on...

Near To Us

So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me...

Steadfast Love Is With Us

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Genesis 39:21 tells us, “But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love.” This steadfast love is the Hebrew word hesed, one of the most beautiful words I have ever known. When I see that word, my heart jumps and tears sting my eyes. Truly. It’s that special...

Eyes to See

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

How lonely life must have been for the man in John 9! Born blind, sitting on the sidelines, begging day after day as people passed him by. Or perhaps worse, as they talked about him right in front of him, as if he was also born deaf. Surrounded by people, yet cut off from them all. Alone in the...

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...
