A New Young Friend and the Old, Old Story

If you’re like me sometimes it’s hard to know what the gospel really looks like in relationships. I actually used to think the gospel was something you spoke only to the lost who needed to hear how the sinless life, atoning death and glorious resurrection of Christ made a way for them to have a relationship with God, brings meaning to suffering and provides hope for the future. Then I heard men like Jerry Bridges and others talk about “preaching the gospel to myself every day” and I wrestled with what that meant....Keep Reading

What is Important This Christmas Part 2: To Incarnate Christ

I’m one of those crazy people who gets up early on Black Friday to shop. It’s a tradition my daughters and I have enjoyed for years. Frankly, I don’t buy much. For me it’s primarily a sentimental opportunity to spend time with my girls and have our yearly lunch at Olive Garden....Keep Reading

My Little Bit of Scripture Surprise

This past Monday started out pretty gloomy. I had trouble sleeping the night before, partly because aging brings sleeping issues and, yeah, I’m in “that season” of life when sleeping is typically challenging. But my restlessness was also related to some weighty concerns I’ve been having about people I love…a lot....Keep Reading

Wanting a Better Past

Often the moments I hear heart-wrenching comments like this are while sitting on the couch in my living room sharing a glass of sweet tea with women from my church. Like me, they’re dealing with the often-weighty consequences of sins by or against them: pain that runs deep like a knife being slowly twisted through the heart. It’s not always there. But when it’s triggered by something as simple as an overheard comment or as disorienting as a dream about “what happened” the knife pinches and turns….again and again. Finally they feel safe enough to tell someone. These moments are what one man calls having someone share their finest china with me. I don’t want to carelessly handle and potentially break something so valuable; so fragile....Keep Reading

Waiting and the Mercy of God

Recently, Sheree Phillips wrote a transparent and helpful post on the struggle of waiting for God. If you're like her (and me), then you probably have an aversion to waiting for just about anything. And the reality is that if you're a Westerner, you're probably just like us in this way. It's no new revelation that with our culture-wide embrace of fast food, fast cash, and the fast lane we simply can't stand waiting on things to happen. We are used to "getting things done" and when we can't change our circumstances it tends to make us uneasy, if not irritable and angry. So waiting reveals our hearts....Keep Reading

I Hate Waiting

I hate waiting. Like last week when I sat at a light. I was in a hurry to get home before the Florida skies open up like they do on most warm, sunny days. The light turned green but there was no movement. Too quickly it turned yellow, then red again. Humph. Huge raindrops started pelting my windshield. Then I noticed flashing lights on a car ahead. I waited some more, hoping the driver in front of me would try to inch around next time the light turned green. But no. Then a young woman dragged herself out of the car with a cell phone on her ear. As I slowly followed the car in front of me past her, I noticed a baby in a car seat crying…....Keep Reading

Keeping the Home

At age 60 I remember the days when church women’s ministries were focused on Titus 2: 3-5 which in part teaches women to be “keepers at home.” In fact, I was one of those pastor’s wives who taught this passage in our own church’s women’s ministry. Honestly, I benefited from this. I gained a vision for my home as the primary focus of my gifts and ministry. I learned to push through not feeling creative or administrative enough to get it all done. God used other women in my life to inspire and help me overcome patterns of procrastination and I really did come to love the often mundane tasks of keeping a home running....Keep Reading

lessons from a 1970′s co.worker (part two)

Yesterday's thoughts has me asking myself some pretty probing questions: Why should I care for my home when I know people are just going to keep messing it up? Why did I discipline my kids for arguing and being disrespectful when I knew they would do it again within days or hours or minutes? Why should I trust God to help my hurting friend when it seems my prayers have gone unanswered? Why can't I "sin back" when those I love are uncaring, selfish or lazy?...Keep Reading

lessons from a 1970′s co.worker (part one)

My mom was one of the parents who regularly said, "Because I said so." I told myself I would never say that...like I told myself I would never make my kids clean on Saturday mornings so they could watch cartoons like the rest of the world....Keep Reading

When Prayer Isn't Answerered...My Way (Part Two)

(This is Part Two of this story. Please see yesterday's post for Part One.) The day my Uncle Rocky died I was heartbroken, but I knew I had to tell Josh and Jaime. I still remember feeling perplexed and disappointed. I didn't remember ever believing so strongly that God would heal. I had so wanted them to witness a real miracle......Keep Reading

When Prayer Isn't Answered...My Way

Our friend, Frank, has been doing a Sunday evening mini-series on prayer. While it's likely I heard him do a variation of these messages in the 90′s at a former church, his words have been freshly challenging and encouraging me. As a small group of us sat our family room listening to him teach last night, the Lord began to show me how easily I'm tempted to discouragement when God doesn't answer my prayers my way. Then I started thinking about Uncle Rocky....Keep Reading

Anticipating 2032

History isn't very important to a lot of people. But my husband was a history major who has transferred his love of history to our family. Sometime I will have to blog about the competition five of our kids engaged in with the same college history professor… This morning at Redeemer Church history was on display. ...Keep Reading

Looking For That Needle Of Superiority

Do you remember the point I repeated my last post? Our faith-filled obedience to God pleases Him and sanctifies our work. The good news is that while the type of work we do differs, God's pleasure is the same whatever our work is!...Keep Reading

Our Faith Sanctifies Our (Even Insignificant) Work

A couple of years ago my son, Jesse, preached a message on the importance of seeing the place into which God has put us as a divine calling. The text was 1 Corinthians 7:17: "Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches."...Keep Reading
