  • The plea of the patriarchs

    Just as we the people of the United States have forefathers, such as George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, Israel had forefathers as well. Instead of forefathers, the Bible uses the term, “patriarch.”
    In Genesis 12, God calls a man named Abram from the land of Ur, where they so happened to serve the moon god, Sin. As Abram relied solely on the voice of the Almighty, he took his wife, nephew Lot and a few others with him on the journey to Canaan land. It would be Canaan in which God tells Abram that the nation to proceed from him should dwell.

  • When life doesn’t make sense

    There are times we become confused and will not be able to figure out a way to solve our problems. Life is not always a smooth interstate and it’s good to remember that God is with us when we encounter unexpected roadblocks and detours.
    In these stressful situations, we can know that delays do not necessarily mean denial but could be an opportunity for us to stretch our faith and learn more about trusting God. There is a fascinating story found in Genesis chapter 22 about a man named Abraham and his wife Sarah.

  • The folly of Eyeore faith

    Years ago, I had a friend who was desperately trying to get a book published.
    Every time she sent her manuscript out to yet one more publisher, she’d get her hopes up.
    “This one could be the one,” she’d tell me.
    But it was never “the one,” and she continued to get her manuscript returned, albeit always with a kind rejection letter attached.
    She tried to stay positive, but with constant rejection, it began to tax her faith.

  • Ode to Psalm 91

    “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the most high will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
    I found an artist on the Etsy website who hand paints scripture verses, white lettering on rustic gray paper.
    Earlier this year, during a particularly rough time in our lives, my husband and I went to see a pastor, and at the end of our meeting, the pastor gave us a prescription: Read Psalm 91 together daily.

  • Jesus > suicide

    Jesus and the disciples had just come out of a horrible storm, in which Jesus commanded to be still. As if the storm wasn’t enough, they shored the ship in the country of the Gadarenes.
    In that day, that part of the country was a destination undesired. This land has a rough history of unreached promises, as the Bible tells us that this region is where the tribes dwelt in which chose not to cross over into the promise land with Joshua. However, Jesus is well known for stepping into places where most fear to go.
