Stagger not at the promises

(As it is written, “I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able to perform. (Romans 4:17-21 KJV)

It’s the small things

Have you ever found yourself so busy or consumed by stuff you didn’t find much joy in the whole day? In this topsy turvy world we can rush right past the blessings and joy right in front of us overtaken by endless checklists and constant distractions.

What’s really important?

In the midst of devastation and loss, amazing courage can often be seen. News reports show people standing in the midst of ruined homes, facing the loss of possessions and the work of a life-time. They bravely smile and say that life goes on. Neighbors pitch in to help strangers and their communities.

Ants in your pants?

“Tate’s clothes in his closet are covered in ants.” That was the text my wife sent me before church as I was counseling with a couple this past week. Talk about “ants in your pants.”

So your name is on the Ashley Madison list…

By now we’ve all heard about the Ashley Madison list. That website is one of the most blatant attacks on marriage, offering “guaranteed affairs or your money back” because “life is short you should have an affair.” I soon realized Josh Duggar was not the only one on this scandalous list. It wasn’t long before you could search the millions of names for those in your own city. I’ve never read the list, searched for names, and don’t plan on it.
