Kathrine Anne Porter said, “Love must be learned again and again; there is no end to it.”God is love. I’ve mentioned this in a blog post before, but I think it’s worth repeating. 1 John 4:8 says, “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” I think we can somewhat wrap our brains around the fact …

Today I read this sentence and it really hit a cord with me.  “Conquering the heart and mind are the front line of the battle of faith.” I’ve defined faith before. So, how can the heart and mind be on the front lines of it? Well, there is always a battle for your heart and mind going on. God is …

Have you ever heard or done the illustration of putting a pencil to your nose with the words facing you? I remember someone telling me to do it once and the trick is, you can’t see the words because it’s too close.

I am writing this morning with a house full of teenagers. I have three of my own. (Well, my daughter is 11, but she acts like she’s 14.) This happens often where everyone is here. I am thankful they enjoy it here and that I can minister to them. My children have picked some really good kids to be best …

This will round my week out with music. Today, I was thinking about the lyrics to a Matt Maher song. It is from his song “Lord I need you”. It is a spin off of an old hymn.The part of the song that means the most to me is “And when I can not stand, I’ll fall on You. Jesus …

There is just something about the ocean that amazes me. It’s such a huge body of water covering the earth, and it’s so powerful. It’s salt water, which is unusual. It houses millions of living creatures and odd animals. The waves can sweep you off your feet and under if you aren’t careful. But those waves can also be comforting, …

I have made many mistakes in my life. Sometimes, I make multiple mistakes within one relationship. It happens. I think it’s important to apologize and learn from your mistakes. There might even be a time when you feel like you didn’t do anything wrong, or you did something on accident. If another person was hurt by what happened, it affected them, so …
