Each individual Christian must help to care for the flock. Each of us has a gift or gifts from the Lord, and we should use what He has given up to help protect and perfect the flock. – Warren Weirsbe, The Weirsbe Bible Commentary NT (John 21) Shell-shocked. That’s how I’ve been feeling after a […]
How to find the Sweet Life? It’s so simple, we can miss it.
God’s been inspiring dreams—and taking them away—for centuries. But always for a very special reason.
And typically, before the story was done, God had a surprise twist in the end that changed everything.
Have you ever felt that you’ll never fit in? Have you stood at a window–palms pressed to glass–looking into the place where you want to be, seeing people there but knowing you don’t have access? Waiting for a door to open that seems forever locked?
What do you desire, in the deepest, most sacred place of your heart, that you haven’t dared to ask God to grant you? Something so impossibly wonderful that you can’t bear to consider it as a reality for your life, and yet, that’s exactly what I want you to do.

My name hasn’t a shred of power. It won’t change lives for the better. I’d rather lift up the Name of the One Who has created every living thing. Now that name has power! That’s the name to be lifted up… not mine.

One of my first memories of living in Charlotte was going to a local buffet-style restaurant. As I stood in the monotonous line with my empty plate in need of a good filling, a southern gentleman stepped up to the buffet and gazed at the spread of greens, fruits, breads and entrees. As he surveyed […]
