Fear and Terror

Fear and Terror

In many ways, I guess, we’ve always been in wartime. Since Genesis 3, there have been extreme conflicts between people groups, nations, and terrorism throughout the world. The recent bombings in New York and New Jersey as well as the stabbings in Minneapolis have...

5 Ways to Pray for Pastors

Over the past few years we have seen a number of pastors either fall into sin or burnout and then decide to call it quits. Now this isn’t new or even unique to the past few years, but perhaps because of social media and the internet in general we are more aware...

God Cares for Your “Little” Trials Too

“When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul” (Psalm 94:19). Recently, I had one of those days. You know, those days when you get up extra early to pack lunches for preschool and jump in the car only for it to break down on the way. One of...

A Personal Update: On Not Caring and Caring Much More

It’s an interesting thing—birthdays. In one sense, the day feels so incredibly special—mostly because of my family, friends, and the wonderful folks who remind me that I’m loved and cared for. That’s special! But then, it’s also just an ordinary day. For example, I...

Can You Be Hospitable with Little?

I love to host people in my home—the more the merrier! The idea of one day owning a bed-and-breakfast and preparing a meal for strangers who have traveled far and wide, preparing all the Southern fixin’s you can imagine (eggs, bacon, grits, biscuits, gravy), makes...

Don’t Wait to Encourage

Don’t Wait to Encourage

I woke up smiling this morning after the most pleasant dream. My oldest sister, Alicia, has been on my mind a lot over the past few weeks. In my dream, she was hunting for something odd and, if I remember correctly, it was a device that measures body temperature. Yep,...
