Lord of the Darkness: Trusting Jehovah When Suffering Comes


Psalm 88 must be the darkest psalm of them all, and one of the bleakest passage in the Bible. As I read this today, I kept waiting for the yet or however or but that you find in other psalms, but there are none. The author, Heman, goes on and on about how bad his life is. Read my journal …

When Cupid’s Arrows Bring Pain


Today I am blessed to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my beautiful bride and love of my life, Heidi. Valentine’s Day 2012 was not so happy. I won’t go into details in this public place–not yet anyway–but many of our close friends and family know the past several years have been a struggle for us. I know we’re not alone. Marriage …

Partnering with God


God specializes in reconciliation and restoration! It’s what he does best and it’s one of the things in which he takes great joy. Just read Luke 15 to see what I mean. God also loves to do more–surpassingly or abundantly more–than we can even ask or imagine. He loves it when we partner with him to carry out his mission …

You’re A Shepherd, But Not The Shepherd


“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care” (1 Peter 5:2). As a small group leader, your main role is to be a shepherd, yet it is essential for you to understand that you are not the real shepherd, the chief shepherd. That role belongs exclusively to Jesus. “I am the good shepherd. I know my sheep,” and …

When God Does Not Feel Like “Immanuel”

What do you do when you are struggling and God seems far away? Especially during this season of the year, it seems many of us are hurting. We desperately want to know Immanuel—God with us—but he seems more like Exmanuel–God used to be with me, but now I feel like he’s left me … or I feel like he is …

Thankful Through the Valley


I am thankful today that I have the privilege of having a loving Father who is BIG and powerful! Bigger than any circumstance or situation, more powerful than anyone or anything that comes against me. I’m thankful that though he is so big, he also is concerned and involved in the minute details of my life. He is Jehovah Jireh, …

When Life Isn’t Making Sense, Ask the Right Questions


When you are walking through a dark valley of the soul or when the circumstances in your life are not making sense, it’s vital to ask the right questions. In Psalm 73, the people, in the midst of difficult and seemingly unfair life situations, are dismayed and confused. “Does God realize what is going on?” they ask. “Is the Most High …

What Do You Do When Life Sucks?


What do you do when life sucks? What do you do when it seems everyone and everything is against you? What do you do when your marriage isn’t what you want it to be or you are struggling with your kids? What do you do when your pile of bills is way bigger than you can pay? What do you …

Bribing God


There are some “if … then” passages in the Bible, and it is vital how you interpret and apply them! Here’s one I read this morning: “If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, my Lord would not have listened” (Psalm 66:18, New Living Translation).  Some people interpret this legalistically. In other words, they think, God will not …

20 Questions to Ask at the End of Your Rope


If you’re at the end of your rope, there are some important questions you need to ask yourself: What is the other end of this rope tied to?  Where is this rope supposed to be taking me?  Is it tied to the right things, the right values? Am I sure I’m at the end of my rope or do I …
