God’s Will

The Good that Opposes the Best

oswald chambers quote good and best

In business, we often say that good is the enemy of great (and quickly fix that with books like Good to Great by Jim Collins). But have you ever thought about the good that opposes the best when it comes to our spiritual life? Philippians 4:8 tells us Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is ... Read More »

Living-beyond-yourself-book

God ate my to-do list today. This morning as I sat down to listen to Beth Moore teach session 2 of our “Living Beyond Yourself” study following our week titled “To Live By the Spirit”, I had a heavy heart. A big change is taking place in our lives today, that although I feel very strongly about (in a good ... Read More »

Pruning

I have a beautiful plant that a friend gave me a couple years ago.  It started out as only two branches, and while one branch thrived, the other became weak and small.  When I asked my mom how to treat the sick branch, she informed me that I must cut the longer branch and replant it because its roots were ...

How does God look?

How does God look in your life? On the way to church yesterday morning, Britton asked if God was ever a lizard. I don’t think it was a deep theological question as much as it was a little boy trying to fit Jesus into an imagine he was looking at in his book. While I love how my son was ... Read More »

Finding Comfort

As I, along with the rest of the world, sat in shock and watched the Canadians lose the gold medal to what seemed to be unfair judging, I wondered how they would recover emotionally.  They skated a perfect routine, the ...

My Way

“I did it my way.” Frank Sinatra wasn’t the only one to have ever uttered these words. How many times have you ever passed over reading the instruction manual before operating a new gadget?  How often have you driven in circles instead of stopping to ask for directions?  Have you ever had someone go before you to show you the ...

Unashamed

I pray a lot about walking in God’s will.  I pray and ask for him to reveal his calling on my life.  Sometimes, I believe I may be too legalistic about even that.  It’s not always about where we are, but what are we doing where he has put us.  Our primary purpose is to proclaim his name and make ...

I will go

When Rebekah met Abraham’s servant, who wanted her to return to his home to be married to Isaac, she was ready and willing.  Her brother and mother even asked if she could stay with them before leaving.  So they left it up to the girl to decide.  Rebekah knew this was God’s will for her life, so her only response ...
