The only value worldly riches have is in their heavenly purpose. If their value to us becomes greater than the value God places on them, then what we have will never be enough. Ever. When their value to us is their value to Him, then we will never be lacking. Ever. Beware of consoling your soul with what only has worldly value.Read More

If Peter’s story had ended with his denial, we might conclude he’s a failure. But he isn’t,...Read More
Jesus spoke directly to Satan and told Him what for, and as His disciples, He’s given us the authority to do the same thing. It’s time to confront the devil OUT LOUD, tell him where to go, and then stick our fingers in our ears, because he’s not going to go quietly. The devil’s M.O. is to get us to go against God and therefore keep us separated from Him or cause us to be useless to His purposes, and when we resist, he throws an eternal tantrum, manipulating until he wears us down or we shut him up. Satan’s been trying to wear me down, and it’s time I shut him up.Read More
There it sits on my bathroom counter, a pink sticky note with two words scribbled in pencil: No lingering. It’s been there several weeks like a “No Loitering” sign that warns against aimlessly lurking with nothing to do but find trouble, heading off problems before they stir. That’s what my sticky note is doing for me: coaching me along, keeping me accountable. It’s there because I was spending a lot of time in front of the mirror, dissatisfied. From full-length to magnified and lit up close, I was studying myself; the more I did, the more I found to criticize.Read More
I have a love/hate relationship with exercise. I love the way I feel afterward, but I hate doing it. If only I was 4″ taller and could maintain a super model’s figure without lifting a finger (except to raise dark chocolate to my mouth)! Most days, I walk/jog or work out to a video. One of my DVD instructors stresses working our smaller muscles because they’re connected to the larger ones. Today’s target, the tongue, is like that: it’s a relatively tiny muscle that’s connected to a larger one – the heart. Target TEN: Speaking life-giving words.Read More
Even as I ranted my Dixie cup prayer last week, exasperated from endlessly bailing the swelling sea of cultural contaminants from my family, I received my answer: “In it not of it.” I’ve heard it preached and repeated in...Read More
Can I whine for a moment, Lord? Can I tell you how weary I am of how hard it is to remain faithful in a faithless world? How exhausted I am with the unrelenting cultural campaign to turn our children’s hearts away from You? Can...Read More
Life in Christ, while a gift, is not free of standards and expectations. As God’s children, He expects us to live for Him, not ourselves. As His dwelling place, we are told in Romans 12:1 to “present your bodies a living...Read More
Due to a track record of complete failure, I refuse to make a New Year’s resolution. Why set myself up for guaranteed disappointment? It’s not that I disagree with the concept. I think it’s good to have goals and inspiring...Read More
