Praying Hands

I helped a pastor and his family move this weekend, and though I was personally very sad to see them go, I was happy to help them take the next step in the Lord’s plan for their lives. This post is a personal prayer for blessings on them as the serve the Lord and the people around them. I wasn’t able to say this prayer with them before leaving, but I leave it here in the hopes that it will strengthen the family and friends that read it.

Lord, Why Don’t I Have “X”?

Dec 4th, 2007 Posted in Faith, Prayer | no comment »

We are often struck with a realization that we don’t have what we “want”, and sometimes we even think we don’t have what we need; and at these times we ask the Lord, “Why don’t I have this thing or that thing”?

Several things struck me about the trip, and I’ll relate just a few here. First, when we found our seats, the fans around us were incredibly nice and everyone talked together, laughing and joking.. very good natured. By the 3rd quarter however, the mood had changed. Now there were braggarts, loud folks – men and women alike – that were throwing curse words around, yelling at the coaches, and generally misbehaving. This was with the Packers winning the game. So,what might make a person act this differently? The answer is simple; a lack of temperance and the ready presence of alcohol. The game is every bit as fun to watch with one beer in you as it is with five. The difference is, with one beer in you, the game might continue to be fun to watch for everyone around you!

Jesus: Lord or Savior?

Folks, when I decided to attend the CareNet annual conference in Louisville, KY this year, I thought that I would learn a lot about what a Board Member at a Crisis Pregnancy Center should do. I thought I may – perhaps – even intersect with people of faith and encounter reflections of our Lord here and there, but I certainly would learn how to do more things for the Kingdom here on earth. What I didn’t know God had in store were deep lessons about what He wants me to be for Him. Read the rest of this entry »
